When I went to photograph Art of Élan’s Kate Hatmaker for this weekend’s Q&A feature, I knew I’d want to get her outside of Symphony Hall, as her organization aims to take classical music outside of its normal context.

Hatmaker was a good sport, and I convinced her to roam the streets of downtown San Diego while playing her violin.

I shot photos as we walked, but also attached a small video camera on top of my regular camera to capture some of the sounds and movement. Here are two short videos of Hatmaker playing the Allemande movement from Partita No. 2 in D minor by J.S. Bach.

This is raw video and just intended to give you a feel for the photo shoot, so please forgive the jumpiness and the clicking sounds:

And here are a few more photos from our downtown wanderings: 


We Stand Up for You. Will You Stand Up for Us?

    Dont' know when the videos were made, but for more impact, lunch hour would be the best.
