Binghamton Philharmonic teams with downtown LUMA festival

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The 2nd annual LUMA Projection Arts Festival will be teaming up with a new partner this year to accompany an historic piece of visual art.

The Binghamton Philharmonic will provide live music during one of the animations at this year's festival that takes place in Downtown Binghamton on September 2nd.

A 48-piece orchestra will accompany an animated projected version of the BC Comic Strip, made famous by Johnny Hart.

The projection will last 5 minutes and the Philharmonic will blend together 3 classical pieces.

UMA Co-Founder Joshua Bernard says the idea was beyond his wildest expectations.

"If we're going to do it, we're going to do it big. I was imagining maybe a little quartet standing behind the projection and thought that I wouldn't be into that. That was before we met. She said, 'How about a 48-piece orchestra playing live?' and I thought 'We're in,'" he said.

LUMA began its online fundraising campaign Tuesday.

This year's goal is to raise $15,000, the same amount generated in last year's campaign.
