Harpist-slash-rockstar Bridget Kibbey brings a haunting program to the Catacombs, accompanied by a team of top-notch string players. Together, they’ll perform music that hovers in the shadows between darkness and light, from Debussy’s Sacred and Profane dances, to Bach’s haunting Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, to the grand finale: André Caplet’s gripping Conte Fantastique.
The Program: Debussy: Danses Sacrée et Profane; Saint-Saëns: Fantaisie; Bach: Toccata and Fugue D Minor; Britten: Lachrymae; Caplet: Conte Fantastique
The Performers: Chad Hoopes: violin; Grace Park: violin; Matthew Lipman: viola; Mihai Marica: cello
The Angel’s Share, a new series of opera and chamber music concerts, takes place in Green-Wood’s Catacombs. One of the oldest structures in the 478-acre National Historic Landmark Cemetery, the Catacombs were built in the 1850s and are normally closed to the public. The series takes its name from the distiller’s term for whiskey that evaporates while maturing in the barrel, thus going to the angels.
Each performance includes a pre-concert reception at sunset overlooking New York harbor and the Manhattan skyline.
$75 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $80 for non-members
