Ben Weber's Lyric Piece for String Quartet, free concert, Lincoln Center, Sept. 20

Date: 

Sep 20 2018 - 7:30pm

Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect, Opera on Tap and conductor Mila Henry will perform music by New York composers who flourished in a bygone, some say golden, era. Join Seth Boustead, composer and host of WFMT Chicago’s Relevant Tones, for a live broadcast exploring the issue’s impact on music with author Jeremiah Moss, Open House New York executive Director Gregory Wessner, architect and author of A Country of Cities Vishaan Chakrabarti, and NewMusicBox co-editor Frank J. Oteri.

On the program: music by cellist, composer, and pop music phenom Arthur Russell; a New York City-premiere choral piece by Julius Eastman (The Moon’s Silent Modulation), a string quartet by Ben Weber, and a forgotten gem by Tui St. George Tucker.

Presented in collaboration with Access Contemporary Music. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
