Hamilton, OH - Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and Museum is excited to detail additional elements in Journey BOREALIS – the park’s drivable, holiday light experience.
This year, Journey BOREALIS will feature original arrangements by CCM Grad Daniel Nail featuring the music of The Cincinnati Boychoir and the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra. To access the soundtrack, attendees can download the free app, Echos – which provides geo-located audio. As you proceed through the show route, the original arrangements for Journey BOREALIS will play through your car’s stereo, creating an immersive experience and highlighting the adventure through the holiday lights, to the North Pole.

“This year is the first that we have incorporated a musical score to the Journey BOREALIS experience. Our collaboration with the Cincinnati Boy Choir has been delightful and adds the magical thread to the story that is rooted in discovery and fantasy” said Steve McGowan of Brave Berlin. “Arranging the music came with many challenges due to the fact that the Choir could not assemble to rehearse because of COVID-19. Our solution was to compose the six pieces of music via Zoom calls, in essence creating a virtual choir” added Dan Reynolds of Brave Berlin.
Cincinnati based artist, Pam Kravetz and Vincent Lighting Solutions will also be partnering with Pyramid Hill to bring new elements to the holiday lights display. “The amount of community participation and involvement in Journey BOREALIS this year is inspiring” commented Sean FitzGibbons, Executive Director of Pyramid Hill. “As an arts administrator, my goal has always been to combine community outreach and the arts; working with our volunteer crew to fabricate brand-new sculptures, inviting local artists to create installations, and collaborating with regional art organizations to complete this unique and innovative holiday light spectacle has been wonderful. I cannot wait for November 20th, when we officially present Journey BOREALIS to our community.”
Pam Kravetz, who is a fiber and performance artist and educator will be teaming up with members of The Bombshells of Cincinnati, yarn bombing collective and For Lula Girl yarn bomber to create a whimsical, site-specific installation. Pam Kravetz stated, “the yarn bombers are over the moon excited to get the band back together for Journey BOREALIS at Pyramid Hill. We are knitting and crocheting a cluster of delightfully seasonally celebratory and colorful trees wraps to install along the show route!” For more information about Pam Kravetz, visit her website at https://pamkravetz.com/
