Route for 'Eine Brise'

Spectators for Monday evening's 222-wheeled performance of 'Eine Brise' will gather outside the Colburn School on Grand Avenue.

Downtown is no stranger to musical performances both experimental and mainstream, but the sights and sounds of 111 bicycles pedaling up Grand Avenue will perform Mauricio Kagel's "Eine Brise" may set a new bar for uniqueness.

The wheeled performance is the intermission to Monday Evening Concerts' evening celebrating the composer, who passed away in 2008. The outdoor performance is free, while tickets for the show itself are $27.

The 222-wheeled show show last 60 - 90 seconds, and is scheduled to take place at 8:40pm, during intermission of the 8pm show.

The 111 cyclists will be volunteers. A full cohort of bicycles have already been registered, but on the event logistics page extra cyclists are invited to show up as stand-by performers.

Conductor Marc Lowenstein has prepared a training video for the cyclists, and it gives a bit of a taste of what viewers should expect.
