Ecstatic to add second Ecstatic Music Festival concert!

Having sold out our first Ecstatic Music Festival show at WNYC’s Greene Space in New York City on Tuesday, March 7 (7:30 p.m.), we have just added a second performance at 9:30 p.m. that evening, featuring additional new selections from Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, our education and legacy project that is commissioning—and distributing for free—the first learning library of contemporary repertoire for string quartet.

Presented by Q2 Music, the 9:30 program includes a teaser preview of an excerpt of Laurie Anderson’s as-yet-untitled Fifty for the Future piece, plus commissions by Garth Knox, Fodé Lassana Diabaté, Kala Ramnath, and Soo Yeon Lyuh, who joins Kronos on stage on the haegeum, a traditional Korean string instrument.

Kaufman Music Center’s Face the Music, the acclaimed youth ensemble called “a force in the New York new-music world” by The New York Times, opens the show with a work by Aleksandra Vrebalov, also composed for Kronos’s Fifty for the Future. Hosted by Q2 Music’s Helga Davis, the evening is a rare opportunity to hear the renowned ensemble in such an intimate setting. 

The Greene Space is located at 44 Charlton St. in Manhattan. Tickets are $40 (general admission), available through www.thegreenespace.org.
