Celebrate Brooklyn!: Clifford Ross & The Orchestra of St. Luke's

Thursday, July 30 , 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm, 2015

Clifford Ross & the Orchestra of St. Luke's perform at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

In this mesmerizing world premiere, the masterful NYC-based Orchestra of St. Luke's provides accompaniment to a massive, site specific, multi-screen installation by the artist Clifford Ross, whose work evokes “profound vital­ity and pleasure.” (Art in America) St. Luke’s, an ensemble marked by “roving curiosity” and “stylistic flexibility,” (NY Times) will perform works by Wojciech Kilar, Bryce Dessner, Vivaldi and John Adams, including selections from “The Four Seasons” and excerpts from “Shaker Loops.” Kronos Quar­tet cellist Jeffrey Zeigler teams up with the percussion­ist Andy Akiho and the poet Roger Bonair-Agard on a program of Philip Glass, John Zorn, and Paola Prestini to begin the evening.  

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
