Ecstatic Music Festival kickoff concert at The Greene Space at WNYC and WQXR.
Listen to this concert:
The acclaimed Brooklyn Youth Chorus will perform three songs – including two premieres – written for them by Shara Worden and will perform additional songs with Worden. Best known as the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist of My Brightest Diamond, a band that mixes elements of opera, cabaret, chamber music and rock, Worden has been called “a creative chameleon with endless wells of technical skill…[with] one of the most astounding voices in all of indie rock” (Pitchfork).. The New York Times calls the Brooklyn Youth Chorus “a superb ensemble of bright singers, [that] consistently demonstrates a polish and commitment well beyond its years.” This concert will be one hour long.
