Concerts on the Slope Presents: The City of Tomorrow
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.
