Recurring event see all

July 6th , 8:00pm 9:45pm

catacombs concert lighting

In the middle of Green-Wood is 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’s most distinctive and atmospheric musical experiences.

Our 2022 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.

In these performances, violinist/violist and interdisciplinary performing artist eddy kwon (she/they) will present Four Rituals Toward an Infinite Perfect Resource, which uses interdisciplinary ceremony as an opening into queer ancestry, lineage, and family. kwon will present the 6:30pm performances on July 6th & 7th solo.  The 8pm performance on July 6th will be a collaboration with vocalist, composer/improviser, and interdisciplinary artist Isabel Crespo Pardo (they/them). The 8pm performance on July 7th will be a collaboration with vocalist, composer, and performer Holland Andrews (they/them).

kwon’s performances explore transformation and transgression, ritual practices, and the use of mythology to connect, obscure, and reveal. kwon’s work as an improviser and composer-performer is inspired by Korean folk timbres and inflections, textures and movement from natural environments, and American experimentalism as shaped by the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians.
