In Rehearsal with Inara George and Van Dyke Parks

Saturday Nights at the Getty enjoys performing from aerial silk. It’s mostly a concert series, but it often features film, dance, poetry, or some improbably awesome musical mashup, like Irish mariachi or hip-hop violin. Earlier this season Inara George and Van Dyke Parks made an appearance with a 14-piece orchestra and dancers suspended from silk ribbons. Here’s a glimpse at how they put things together for the show.

Look for our next Saturday Night at the Getty on March 31, featuring Abigail Washburn.

      What is sunrise like at the Getty?

      “The fog was so thick we couldn’t see the sunrise when it came at 5:47am PT. There was no gong, no fanfare. Many of us were oblivious, engrossed in conversations with old friends or new acquaintances, awkwardly touching each other as per Ono’s instructions, or contemplating the obscured landscape. I looked at my companions, asking them “Was that it? Did we miss it?” That was it, but we hadn’t missed it at all.
