Bandshell

Planetarium with Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner and James McAlister

Tuesday, July 18 , 7 pm – 11 pm

Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner and James McAlister will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented 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.

A concept album co-composed by Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner (The National), James McAlister, and Nico Muhly, Planetarium  is an expansive song cycle that explores the Sun, the Moon, the planets and other celestial bodies of our solar system (and beyond) through soundscape, song, science and myth. The result of this creative alliance is a musical and aesthetic journey as far-reaching as its subject: from lush piano ballads to prog-rock political anthems, curious electronic back-beats to classical cadenzas, the vast musical styles seek to explore the diversity and mystery of our cosmos. These talented musicians will bring sing about the stars while under the stars at the Bandshell this summer.

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