 In 2013, two legendary urban airfields – Tempelhof Field in Berlin and Crissy Field in San Francisco – will be turned into vast musical canvases as part of renowned composer and San Francisco native Lisa Bielawa’s expansive new project, Airfield BroadcastsTempelhof Broadcast will take place on Friday, May 10 at 7pm; Saturday, May 11 at 3pm; and Sunday, May 12 at 2pm on the historic airfield-turned-public-park Tempelhof Field in Berlin in partnership with the Berlin Parks Department (Grün Berlin GmbH) and under the patronage of the U.S. Embassy. Crissy Broadcast will take place on Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27 (performance times to be announced) at Crissy Field in San Francisco, part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Each Broadcast is 60-minutes long, and all performances are free and open to the public.

Bielawa’s Airfield Broadcasts are massive, spatialized symphonies involving approximately 1000 professional, student, and amateur musicians, including orchestras, bands, choruses, and experimental new music groups from Germany and the United States. On the selected days in May and October, hundreds of musicians will perform on the grounds of the former Tempelhof Airfield and Crissy Airfield for thousands of music lovers (and unwitting park goers).
