Live Music Returns to the Sculpture Garden for 2017 with Summergarden and Summer Thursdays

The Museum of Modern Art announces its lineups of live music events in The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden for summer 2017. The annual Summergarden: New Music for New York free concert series returns for four Sunday evenings beginning July 9. A tradition since 1971, Summergarden is part of the Museum’s long history of presenting contemporary classical music and jazz. The Museum once again welcomes the collaboration of its programming partners, The Juilliard School and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Members of the New Juilliard Ensemble, under the artistic direction of Joel Sachs, perform on July 9 and 23, offering two distinctive programs of contemporary compositions that are receiving their New York premieres. Juilliard concerts are performed by members of the New Juilliard Ensemble, which, under the artistic direction of Joel Sachs, specializes in presenting new music in the most diverse styles from all over the world, and the Verona Quartet, which has just concluded a two-year residency at Juilliard. Jazz at Lincoln Center has selected two jazz groups whose concerts on July 16 (Marquis Hill Project) and July 30 (Patrick Bartley’s Dreamweaver Society) emphasize original works. Each Jazz at Lincoln Center evening features one world premiere.

On Thursday evenings in July and August, the Museum presents Summer Thursdays, a series of musical performances free with Museum admission, organized in collaboration with PopRally, a cross-departmental committee that programs events at the Museum and MoMA PS1. Beginning July 6, the Museum will remain open until 9:00 p.m. on Thursdays and present concerts in the Sculpture Garden. The 2017 Summer Thursdays series features performers who cross geographical and stylistic borders in every sense, blending genres as wide-ranging as punk, jazz, Afro-beat, and electro, and claiming cultural influences and heritage from around the globe. They include groups as diverse as ¡Aparato!, Alsarah and the Nubatones, and Banda Magda. The series begins with the “neo-Sufi” sounds of the Pakistan-born Arooj Aftab, and closes with Helado Negro's idiosyncratic fusion of Latin pop and synth-rock. This year, Summer Thursdays performances are presented in conjunction with the digital exhibition Crossing Borders: Immigration and American Culture. The series is also presented in conjunction with Citizens and Borders, a series of projects at MoMA related to works in the collection that offer critical perspectives on histories of migration, territory, and displacement.

Orchestra of St Luke's
Multi- Disciplinary Chamber Music Festival
FIRST YEAR THEME IS
FACETS OF SCHUBERT
JUNE 7 - 25, 2017
Three Programs Feature Conversation with
New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik, composer Steven Mackey,
curators from the Morgan Library & Museum and St. Luke's President James Roe

ORCHESTRA OF ST. LUKE'S LAUNCHES NEW ANNUAL MULTI-DISCIPLINARY CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL AT THE MORGAN LIBRARY & MUSEUM AND BROOKLYN MUSEUM Soprano Ying Fang and Pianist Henry Kramer to Join St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble

Orchestra of St. Luke's will debut Facets of Schubert, the first iteration of the Ensemble's new chamber music festival at the Morgan Library & Museum and Brooklyn Museum, from June 7 through 25. This inaugural edition will present three richly curated programs that illuminate Schubert's life and music through performance, conversation with notable speakers, and literary narrative read in concert with music. The Festival will take place each June and focus on a selected composer every year.

The Festival's 2017 initial season Facets of Schubert takes three chamber music masterpieces as entry points for explorations of the composer's art and life. Programs feature the centrality of song, finished works that Schubert never heard and unfinished fragments, and the world premiere of Adam Gopnik's literary response to the composer's monumental Octet.

Program I: Trout Quintet & The Art of Song
This opening program will guide the audience through the juncture of Schubert's vocal and instrumental music. Renowned composer and electric guitarist Steven Mackey will offer insights on writing music for voice.

Program II: Cello Quintet & Unfinished Works
Because Schubert's life was cut tragically short by illness, a body of his work was left unfinished, and many completed pieces were never heard by the composer - or anyone - during his life. These concerts combine the unfinished with the unheard. The Morgan's Carolyn Vega, Assistant Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, and Ilona van Tuinen, Annette and Oscar de la Renta Assistant Curator of Drawings and Prints, join OSL's James Roe, President and Executive Director, in a pre-concert conversation on the theme of unfinished artistic works.

Program III: Octet with Readings by Adam Gopnik
Here, the music of Schubert's Octet is paired in dialogue with one of New York's most distinctive literary voices and a great fan of the composer, Adam Gopnik. Between movements of the Octet, Gopnik will read the original narrative about the intersection of music and life, which was commissioned by Orchestra of St. Luke's. Conversation with the author following each performance will explore the process of creating this unique work.
