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.

This evening features Palestinian Kanun (Mediterranean Zither) player and composer Firas Zreik, in an intimate acoustic solo set. Zreik will be performing a selection of his original compositions, which combine his deep understanding of the ancient Maqam (traditional Arabic melody) with elements of modern global musical styles, creating a fresh authentic sound.
