Music for Two People: Caroline Shaw & Andrew Yee

Recurring event see all

September 7th , 6:00pm 8:30pm

THE LONG STORY

What do you get when you combine Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw and Grammy Award-winning cellist Andrew Yee? We don’t entirely know, but we’re 100% certain it’s going to be a supernova too powerful to contain. You won’t want to miss it! 

These two majestically gifted performers will bring their talents to a program of freshly scripted compositions (written by them) and re-workings of other pieces (also written mostly by them)—including the world premiere of a piece inspired by Green-Wood’s extraordinary tree collection.

If this evening couldn’t get any better, enjoy a complimentary whiskey tasting and snacks (all free!).
