We’re excited to announce our next Massivemuse with our friends, Groupmuse and Palaver Strings.
Palaver is the conductor-less string symphony of activist-musicians on a mission — to bring communities together and catalyze important conversations through the shared experience of the glorious music they make.
They’ve Massive’d on both coasts and it’s always a smash when they come to the Big Apple. This time, they’ve got a program of new works and Bach — his sublime cantata “Komm Jesu Komm” and his shattering, explosive, and legendary Chaconne in D Minor for Solo Violin arranged for the full band.
To present this year’s performance, we have the honor to partner with the Colonial Dames of America – the oldest colonial lineage society for women in the United States, and stewards over the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Gardens. It’s one of the few remaining pre-1800 buildings in Manhattan and the landscaped grounds coming alive in May amongst the massive steel and glass neighbors is a sight to see. The museum and gardens are open prior to the performance, so please come early to to enjoy a guided tour of this landmarked historical site!
We’ll reach into the past, we’ll revel in the present, we’ll welcome in the future.
