In the middle of Green-Wood lies a cavernous underground space rarely open to the public. The Catacombs is not just a place of rest for the departed, it is also the setting for New York City’s most distinctive and atmospheric musical experience.

Our 2023 Concert in the Catacombs series is curated by acclaimed experimental singer and songwriter Gelsey Bell. Hailed by The New York Times as “one of New York’s most adventurous musicians,” Bell brings together performers from a diverse range of styles, backgrounds, and influences.

Price: $40, and $35 for members.

The evening features Anaïs Maviel, a vocalist and composer who combines traditional and experimental approaches to investigate the transformative power of music. Through song, choral- and instrumental music, and creative staging, Maviel navigates sound and speech rooted in oral traditions. They include the ecstatic rituals of mantra chanting and ring shout. On October 4th, Maviel will be joined by AÏM choral collective. Performers include: Christina Bernard, Judette Elliston (sopranos), Maya Keren, Zosha Warpeha, Anaïs Maviel (altos), Concetta Allegra Abbate, Luz Flaneuse, Eamon Fogarty (tenors), Varun Rangaswamy (baritone), Troy D. Wallace, Christian Cepeda (bass). The October 4th performance was partly funded by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, to which we extend our heartfelt gratitude. On October 5th she will offer a solo performance.
