The "mesmerizing," and "exultant" (New York Times) saxophonist Colin Stetson, a member of Bon Iver and Arcade Fire beloved by both avant-garde players and indie rock bands, is a master of coaxing unique, subtle sounds from his saxophone, and of pairing those sounds with beautiful vocal writing. He is joined by two idiosyncratic ensembles: first, the Grammy-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus will premiere a new work (co-commissioned by the BYC) written by Stetson for them alone, along with new arrangements of songs originally written for the voice of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. They will also present a new arrangement written by violinist/composer Sarah Neufeld of Arcade Fire. Stetson will then be joined by a newly-formed band, including Greg Fox, Shahzad Ismaily, Stuart Bogie, Ryan Ferreira, and more, to reinterpret Gorecki's widely-beloved Third Symphony.
