Colin & Brooklyn Youth Chorus / Greg Fox
The Ecstatic Music Festival continued this past Saturday (3/22) at Merkin Concert Hall with sax great Colin Stetson (collaborator of Arcade Fire, Bon Iver and many others), joined by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. After their set together, Colin did a second set with an ensemble that included his sister Megan, Arcade Fire violinist Sarah Nefueld, and ex-Liturgy skins master Greg Fox, who also collaborated with Colin in NYC last month. Pictures of the show are in this post.
Ecstatic Music Festival wraps up this week with two shows: So Percussion with Buke & Gase on Wednesday (3/26), and Man Forever (fronted by Kid Millions of Oneida) with William Basinski on Saturday (3/29). You can still get tickets to both.
