Rob Kapilow’s newest Citypiece

Golden Gate Opus

In Spring 2011, Rob Kapilow was commissioned by The Marin Symphony to compose Golden Gate Opus, a piece for orchestra, chorus and recorded natural sound to celebrate the Bridge’s 75th anniversary next year. To capture the authentic sounds of the bridge in this new piece, The Marin Symphony and Rob Kapilow teamed up to gather input from locals, visiting the surrounding communities and schools, and asking the question “what does the bridge sound like to you?”. After an overwhelming response, Rob hopes that the composition will capture the sounds, history and legacy of the iconic landmark. The piece will have its world premier in May 2012, when it will be played from both sides of the bridge.
