This dramatic oratorio by composer Marisa Michelson and librettist Royce Vavrek tells the story of Noah’s Ark from the perspective of Noah’s wife. Naamah is a strong woman who must guide the diverse species of animals in coming together as the Ark reaches dry land. From the birds to the hippos, each group has its own concerns. Can they learn to live together after the crisis has passed?

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place at 10am and 11am.    New York City, NY; NYC

Sandbox Percussion, lauded by The Washington Post as “revitalizing the world of contemporary music” with “jaw- dropping virtuosity,” perform works by the composers inspired by Anton Webern's music: Epstein (b.1959), Ligeti (b.1923-2006) and Cerrone (b.1952).  This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Anton Webern, (1883-1945) the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.    New York City, NY; NYC

She has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fischer/ David Geffen Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Symphony Hall in Chicago, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, Musikverein in Vienna, Cadogan Hall in London, Victoria Hall in Geneva among others. Composer and pianist Vassily Lobanovon conducted masterclasses for piano, chamber music and composition in Russia, Germany, Austria, Poland, Japan, Chile, Finland. Since 1997 Lobanov is professor for piano at the Musikhochschule Köln in Germany. About the Program Composer Clara Schumann (Robert Schumann's wife) considered one of the most distinguished pianists of the Romantic era. She exerted her influence over a 61-year concert career, changing the format and repertoire of the piano recital and the tastes of the listening public. She was the first to perform publicly any work by Brahms. Brahms's Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108 is the last of his violin sonatas. The piece is dedicated to Brahms' friend and colleague Hans von Bülow, and was premiered in Budapest in 1888 with Jenő Hubay on violin and the composer at the piano. The Sonata in A major for Violin and Piano by César Franck is one of his best-known compositions, and is considered one of the finest sonatas for violin and piano ever written. It is an amalgam of his rich native harmonic language with the Classical traditions he valued highly, held together in a cyclic framework.    New York City, NY; NYC

Bohuslav Jan Martinů was a Czech composer of modern classical music. In the early 1930s he found his main fount for compositional style, the neoclassicism as developed by Stravinsky. With this, he expanded to become a prolific composer, quickly composing chamber, orchestral, choral and instrumental works. His use of the piano obbligato became his signature.  Jan Dismas Zelenka was a Czech composer and musician of the Baroque period.

Within the midtown area one is able to get the full spectrum of the Trump story and his rise to power. The tour will focus on three main things. The first is looking into the man himself and his history. He is well-connected with organized crime, illicit activity and corrupt dealings, and looking into his history in New York gives a window into that. The second is how he, as a symbol for real estate at large, has massively changed New York’s built environment to cater to a billionaire class at the expense of working New Yorkers. The third, potentially most important, is looking at the systemic nature of Trump’s rise in New York. What Trump has done is about a lot more than the single individual, and by looking at the agencies, actors and government institutions that have supported his rise, we can come away with a larger societal understanding of justice in our country.

Grammy Award winning contributing editor for Rolling Stone Anthony DeCurtis (who knew and interviewed Reed extensively) tells the story of Lou Reed’s life in an illuminating tribute to one of the most incendiary artists of our time. DeCurtis tracks Reed's progress through the accounts of those who knew him and through Reed's most revealing testimony, his music, as well as his relationships with such legendary figures as Andy Warhol, David Bowie, and Laurie Anderson. Lou Reed was the lead guitarist, singer and principal songwriter for the rock band the Velvet Underground, with a solo career that spanned five decades. The Velvet Underground achieved little commercial success during their existence, but are now regarded as one of the most influential bands in rock, underground, and alternative music.    New York City, NY; NYC

Aimee Mann is at the height of her powers: her mostly acoustic 2017 record Mental Illness is her "quintessential statement, tempering the discord of life with elegant chamber-folk." (Pitchfork) Since the early '90s she has steadily built a remarkable catalogue that includes nine studio albums and countless special projects, always anchored by her contemplative lyrics and gorgeous, lilting melodies. Her original contributions to the soundtrack of Paul Thomas Anderson's masterpiece Magnolia earned her both Grammy and Academy Award nominations. The seminal pop-punk band Superchunk co-headlines, riding a wave of momentum generated by their 2018 release What a Time to Be Alive, a snarling polemic against our current political moment. The band's punk-influenced DIY ethos led members Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance to found an independent label in 1989 to release their own music, and that label, Merge Records, went on to stratospheric success. Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter and raconteur Jonathan Coulton, known for his songs about geek culture and technology, opens.    New York City, NY; NYC

Sin Ti is a spectacular act of intimacy between a woman and the void. Live cinema, physical storytelling, theater, music, and a room of mirrors set the stage for Yara Travieso's one-woman sci-fi telenovela. At once intimate, voyeuristic, and drenched in spectacle, Sin Ti dives deep into the mind of a woman in an emotional rebellion against "the gaze." Shattering the expectations of the traditional "love story" is part of a continued dismantling process for Travieso who creates neo-feminist myths.    New York City, NY; NYC

Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” NOVUS NY String Quartet led by Julian Wachner perform works by  the composers inspired by Anton Webern's music: Ligeti (b.1923-2006), Babbitt (1916-2011) and Lutoslawsk (1913-1994). This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music. Anton Webern, the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.    New York City, NY; NYC

Mandolin master and 2018 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Ricky Skaggs "is without peer as a combination vocalist and instrumentalist." (AllMusic) He struck his first chords on a mandolin over 50 years ago, and he continues to do his part to lead the roots revival in music. With 12 consecutive Grammy-nominated albums, all from his own Skaggs Family Records label, the diverse and masterful tones he conjures from his instrument come from a life dedicated to playing music that is both fed by the soul and felt by the heart. In the '80s, his string of #1 country hits made him an icon in the field, and guitarist and producer Chet Atkins credits him with "single-handedly saving country music." In recent decades, Skaggs has favored a more experimental approach to roots and bluegrass music and has taken home a remarkable 15 Grammy Awards with his band Kentucky Thunder. Sierra Hull is another mandolin wizard and rising bluegrass star, of which Alison Krauss remarks, "I think she's endless. I don't see any boundaries. Talent like hers is so rare." She’s here with her dueling mandolins project with Justin Moses, an in-demand and startlingly talented multi-instrumentalist who has played with the likes of Alison Krauss, Del McCoury, Emmylou Harris, Brad Paisley, Joe Diffie, Jerry Douglas, Bruce Hornsby, Peter Frampton, Barry Gibb—and Ricky Skaggs.  Opening the show will be Brooklyn's own Mamie Minch, the soulful, old-school blues guitarist and songwriter.    New York City, NY; NYC

Set in the city of Thebes in a dystopian future, the struggle for power, glory and the claim to the city shatters the bonds of brotherhood, leaving two men lifeless. The new king proclaims one brother a hero and the other a usurper, leaving his limp body lying in the street as an example to those who dare act against the state. The citizens of the city avert their eyes due to fear, turning instead to their new leader who vows to restore order to the war torn city. But when the sister of the slain young brothers protests the edict, she breaks faith with everything she has ever known in order to set things right at any cost. Calling on the cultural landscape of African-American traditions, while adhering to the Greek tragic form; this fresh reimagining of the classic story will captivate, stun and inspire audiences from all backgrounds. The Classical Theatre of Harlem's production is inspired by the Paul Roche adaptation which accomplishes a fidelity to the original while giving CTH the flexibility to showcase ancient ideas that have taken center stage in the current climate: order, law, justice and marginalized voices confronting power and patriarchy.    New York City, NY; NYC

Legendary music producer Hal Willner brings together an eclectic array of musicians for an imaginative musical tribute to Italian composer Nino Rota, who wrote more than 150 scores for Italian and international productions, and who is best known for his iconic scores to Federico Fellini’s films including La Dolce Vita, 8½, and Juliet of the Spirits. His association with Fellini began with Lo sceicco bianco (The White Sheik) (1952), followed by I vitelloni (1953) and La strada (The Road) (1954). They continued to work together for decades The night opens with music from two other famous Rota scores—the first two Godfather movies—before digging into the Fellini music, Nino Rota wrote more than 150 scores for Italian and international productions from the 1930s until his death in 1979—an average of three scores each year over a 46-year period, and in his most productive period from the late 1940s to the mid-1950s he wrote as many as ten scores every year, and sometimes more, with a remarkable thirteen film scores to his credit in 1954. Alongside this great body of film work, he composed ten operas, five ballets and dozens of other orchestral, choral and chamber works, the best known being his string concerto. He also composed the music for many theatre productions by Visconti, Zeffirelli and Eduardo De Filippo[2] as well as maintaining a long teaching career at the Liceo Musicale in Bari, Italy, where he was the director for almost 30 years.    New York City, NY; NYC

Set in the city of Thebes in a dystopian future, the struggle for power, glory and the claim to the city shatters the bonds of brotherhood, leaving two men lifeless. The new king proclaims one brother a hero and the other a usurper, leaving his limp body lying in the street as an example to those who dare act against the state. The citizens of the city avert their eyes due to fear, turning instead to their new leader who vows to restore order to the war torn city. But when the sister of the slain young brothers protests the edict, she breaks faith with everything she has ever known in order to set things right at any cost. Calling on the cultural landscape of African-American traditions, while adhering to the Greek tragic form; this fresh reimagining of the classic story will captivate, stun and inspire audiences from all backgrounds. The Classical Theatre of Harlem's production is inspired by the Paul Roche adaptation which accomplishes a fidelity to the original while giving CTH the flexibility to showcase ancient ideas that have taken center stage in the current climate: order, law, justice and marginalized voices confronting power and patriarchy.    New York City, NY; NYC

Abraham.In.Motion (A.I.M) is a modern dance company whose mission is to create an evocative interdisciplinary body of work through a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual. Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in founder Kyle Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and the visual arts, the goal of the movement is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history. The company will perform a selection of pieces including "Strict Love," "The Quiet Dance" and "Drive." Founded in 2005 by Bessie Award winning choreographer Joya Powell, Movement of the People Dance Company is dedicated to addressing historic and present socio-cultural injustices through dance.

Concert |
From the beatnik riots to the summer of love, NYC’s Greenwich Village was the epicenter of a revolutionary movement in the history of American music. A new wave of writers and performers, inspired by the folk revival of the late fifties, created introspective, socially-aware, deeply personal songs that deserve to be considered as a key part of the American Songbook alongside the pop songs being written uptown. These writers – Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Janis Ian, Fred Neil and Phil Ochs, to name just a few – changed the “folk” repertoire from traditional songs to songs sprung from personal, contemporary experience, as well as from the headlines. This freewheeling concert, hosted by Richard Barone, who pays tribute to that exciting era on his recent album Sorrows and Promises, celebrates the lasting legacy of that pivotal decade along with an eclectic roster of artists from then and now performing songs that still resonate today. FEATURED PERFORMERS: Richard Barone (host/MC) Jesse Colin Young (of The Youngbloods) Melanie José Feliciano Maria Muldaur Jenni Muldaur Marshall Crenshaw Jeffrey Gaines Nellie McKay David Amram Happy Traum The Kennedys Tammy Faye Starlite Anthony DeCurtis (Rolling Stone editor) Cindy Lee Berryhill Steve Addabbo Joe McGinty Jeordie More to be announced…    New York City, NY; NYC
