THE RIDE’S Author/Director/Co-CEO/CCO, Richard Humphrey, has assembled a 14-piece orchestra to record the original score for THE RIDE 2.0, a gloriously reimagined and updated show on wheels, which will celebrate its World Premiere on Thursday, July 14 to usher in New York’s Post-Covid Acoustics of Optimism and Romance.
While concentrating on the lush string section, the new score will address Manhattan’s evolving zeitgeist, a post-Pandemic yearning for hope and the expectation of relief.
As was true during the post-Empire soirées in the 19th century Parisian salons, the great poets were those of the piano, the violin and the cello. They trafficked in the promise of optimistic exuberance and romance.
And with the rules of isolation subsiding, it will be the music that leads us all back to each other.
THE RIDE 2.0, as the Ambassador of Times Square, will be the first to deliver the “new attitude” to its RIDERS who will carry the message to everyone they meet for days after.
THE RIDE is rekindling the Grand Love Affair with New York as it reduces its slick technology vibe and moves to a more compassionate, humanistic, and acoustical vibe.
THE RIDE 2.0’s eight original music pieces have been composed by Tyler Clayton Appel, Greg Mozian and Anne Segal.
