Shortly after, Wild Symphony traversed the Atlantic and landed in the island nation of Iceland where it was performed in Reykjavik’s Harpa Concert Hall by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, one of the leading institutions on the country’s cultural scene. The first movement was performed solely by young musicians from the Austurbær School Band, playing instruments such as toy trumpet, drums, triangle, cuckoo flute, and noisemaker before joining forces with the full ISO to deliver a rousing presentation of Brown’s work.
