Ellen Reid SOUNDWALK: The Hampton Roads region is replete with beautiful outdoor settings—natural areas that invite walking, pausing, and gazing, and cityscapes filled with history. Walks through our beautiful region inspire admiration, imagination, contemplation...but do they also inspire music? Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ellen Reid believes that they do, and she has created Ellen Reid SOUNDWALK, music specific to diverse environments, available for free via a GPS-enabled app. The experience is guided by the listener: the path you choose dictates the music you hear, and no two visits will be exactly the same. Reid has created musical settings uniquely designed to illuminate these environments; performed by the world-class musicians of SOUNDWALK Ensemble, the music is tailor-made for the setting and can be experienced while following social distancing guidelines. SOUNDWALK's premise is simple: Before you head out, just install the free app, and download a SOUNDWALK, hit "start", and begin walking! For instructions and App download:
