Concerts on the Slope Presents: The City of Tomorrow

September 12, 2021, 3 pm4:30 pm.
Admission is free ($20 suggested donation goes directly to the artists)


The last time the City of Tomorrow performed in New York, the five chamber musicians were soloists with the International Contemporary Ensemble at Roulette. After a pandemic-induced hiatus, the award-winning ensemble returns for the Concerts on the Slope series at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Park Slope. 

On Sunday September 12th at 3pm the City of Tomorrow will present a program titled “Ecosystems,” featuring works that draw thematic material from nature, largely composed by New York–based (and -adjacent) composers.  Center stage is Brad Balliett’s “The Fauvettes,” a bright and thoughtful ode to Balliett’s love of bird watching, written for the quintet in 2018.  Also featured is “Through the Interwoven Growth” by Angel Lam, the series’ Grammy-nominated composer in residence this season, as well as works by Valerie Coleman, Reena Esmail, Oscar Suh-Rodriguez, and Scott Wheeler. Admission is free ($20 suggested donation). Proof of vaccination required.
