Hamilton, OH – Journey BOREALIS is an entirely new chapter in the history of Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and Museum. For the first time, Pyramid Hill will create a visual art experience that showcases local and regional new media and light-based artists and partners with local arts organizations to redefine an all new holiday light show at Pyramid Hill.
"The entire Pyramid Hill team is proud to present Journey BOREALIS, an event that is focused on collaborative partnerships with regional arts organizations like the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra and the Cincinnati Boychoir," states Pyramid Hill's Executive Director Sean FitzGibbons "Presenting a safe, drivable, holiday light experience that stands as a creative outlet for local artists is extremely important to the park."
In 2018 and 2019, Brave Berlin expanded the scope of Pyramid Hill’s Holiday Lights on the Hill through the creation of holiday themed projections for show. The continued collaboration with the group has set the stage for what is now Journey BOREALIS. Pyramid Hill received a generous donation from The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. Foundation which enabled the park to take the next steps for this holiday light spectacle which includes cultivating new partnerships.
"During this difficult year the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra has expanded its reach even more into the community, sharing music with creative partners all over town," said Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra Executive Director, LeAnne Anklan. "We are thrilled to work with both Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and the Cincinnati Boychoir on this exciting multimedia project, and we can't wait to see how Brave Berlin will bring CCO's music to life."
The choir and chamber orchestra will create a soundtrack for Journey BOREALIS. This soundtrack will emphasize Brave Berlin’s light design and animated projections, creating an immersive experience for visitors as they embark on their holiday journey. With these new and continued partnerships, the park believes Journey BOREALIS is set to gain national attention, invigorating future iterations of the show.
"The Cincinnati Boychoir is excited to contribute our voices to Journey BOREALIS. Our options to showcase our boys' talents this holiday season were looking limited, thanks to coronavirus. But through this partnership with Pyramid Hill, Brave Berlin and other local arts organizations, we now have a safe, fun, and creative project to work towards during our otherwise mostly virtual fall session," said Cincinnati Boychoir Executive Director Katie MacDonald.
