Ecstatic Music Festival:
Colin Stetson &
Brooklyn Youth Chorus

Saturday, March 22, 2014  |  7:30pm


A Waitlist will be taken at the box office beginning at 6:45 PM on Sat, Mar 22 and any remaining seats will be released for sale at 7:15.

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.

Listen to EMF curator Judd Greenstein introduce this year's concerts.
