About the project
Since 2016, EXO has partnered with Young Patrons of Lincoln Center to produce several party-concerts, each focused on a particular piece of music or composer. In one concert, excerpts from all nine of Beethoven’s symphonies were performed back-to-back, giving listeners a trajectory of those pieces of music as they trace through his creative life; another featured a performance of Dvorak’s 8th Symphony in surround sound.
Each of these concerts have expanded on the ways that EXO can provide a full-body, immersive concert experience, with audience members embedded within the orchestra, with the orchestra surrounding the audience by playing along all four walls, and more.
