See the Music: A Collaboration

June 12, 2021, 7:00 pm

Boise Phil invites you to SEE THE MUSIC: an extraordinary collaboration between Boise State student artists, The Keith and Catherine Stein Luminary, and our own amazingly talented Boise Phil Youth Orchestra (BPYO) musicians. Immerse yourself in the music as it’s brought to expressive visual life on The Luminary’s floor-to-ceiling screens, as our own BYPO quintet performs an original composition written just for them.

SEE THE MUSIC features a stellar original composition from Boise State Music student Allen Skirvin, whose music is visualized with digital art designed and programmed by Boise State student designers in Gaming, Interactive and Mobile Media (GIMM). Our talented BPYO quintet brings it all spectacularly together in their performance filmed at The Stein Luminary* at Boise State (making its public debut on the Digital Stage!).
