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.
