Yay Brian and Harris!
Brian and Harris present Park Avenue Armory’s Youth Corps program at ICA Teen Convening in Boston.
Berlin is such an interesting and inspiring city. The architecture is very bright and unique, unlike the buildings here in New York. Most of New York’s buildings are either grey or made out of glass, but in Berlin more buildings are pastel colored and not as tall, revealing more of the sky to see.
Berlin Day One: Introductions
Not only were we introduced to Berlin, Germany, but also to the Philharmonic.
My fellow Youth Corps member Nassim and I were lucky enough to end our summer this year (after the summer Youth Corps session) going to Berlin to work with young people at the Berlin Philarmonic and preview Peter Sellars’ ritualization of St Matthew Passion, which is coming to Park Avenue Armory in October.
The Youth Corps recently had the wonderful opportunity to meet Peter Sellars, the amazing director of the Berlin Philharmonic’s St. Matthews Passion. At first when I was told that we were going to meet him I was like, “Wait…. What?” I thought that this was just crazy because it’s Peter Sellars! How is this even possible?
Throughout this summer the Youth Corps focused on St. Matthews Passion and Battery Park. One of the things that we did was pick a monument in Battery Park to link to the themes in St Matthews Passion.
I had only been working as an intern at the Park Avenue Armory for about 3 months before being offered a humongous opportunity.
One of the exciting activities that the Youth Corps participated in was taking the tour of the Armory .
