Performance All Ages invites you and your family to take part in the full orchestration of A Paradise Choir on Free Family Day, the culmination of a monthlong exploration of sound and architecture created by artist Chris Kallmyer. During this sonic installation, join in and discover mobile choruses, site-specific performances, and the museum remade into multiple music halls.

Performance All Ages brings newly commissioned, participatory artworks to intergenerational audiences and facilitates direct engagement with artists through workshops, gallery activations, and live performances. Three artists join SFMOMA for monthlong residencies each year, and upcoming projects include Lucky Dragons in October and Cloud Eye Control in April 2017.
