The New Philharmonic​, an Omaha-­based ensemble of contemporary classical performers, is looking for bicyclists to participate in ‘B is for BIKES!’ the midwest premiere of the iconic work Eine Brise (A Breeze): A fleeting action for 111 bicyclists ​by renowned composer Mauricio Kagel.

This project serves to highlight cyclist and pedestrian awareness in the urban landscape of Omaha through aesthetic means. Performing entails riding around a few blocks in Benson at a slow pace with all the other performers – in sort of a critical mass formation – and participating in the creation of a unique soundscape using both a bicycle bell (will be provided) and your mouth in the form of whistles and whooshes. It is a very small time commitment – the actual performance is expected to take less than 4 minutes. All participants will receive a bell, t-shirt, and dinner + drinks post performance. No previous performing experience necessary.

B is for BIKES! is generously sponsored through the Omaha Gives! Back Grant through the Omaha Creative Institute with organizational assistance from our partners at ModeShift Omaha, Benson First Friday, Omaha Bikes, and LiveWell Omaha.
