Yerba Buena Gardens Festival

Yerba Buena Gardens Festival | Free. Outdoors. Fresh. Founded and led by Berklee College of Music and San Francisco Conservatory-trained composer/pianist JooWan Kim, Ensemble Mik Nawooj is a hip-hop orchestra that creates epic new music by sampling classical compositional techniques. This concert is the world premiere of the ensemble's immersive hip-hop oratorio Death Become Life. As part of the album release celebration Mik Nawooj is partnering with graffiti artist Ernest Doty to create a temporary art installation, the all-female hip-hop dance company Mix'd Ingrdnts, and the Oakland dance company TURFinc. JooWan Kim's most ambitious production yet also includes a chamber orchestra with full strings, woodwinds, French horn, chamber choir and soprano soloist, two MCs, piano, and funky drums. Part of YBG Festival's Weekend Sessions. For our full summer schedule, visit
