‘Wordless Music’ at the Whitney (Times New Viking, Prefuse 73, A Sunny Day in Glasgow & more)

Four free shows in June at the Whitney in NYC….

After far too long of having to charge admission for our concerts, Wordless Music takes over the Whitney Museum’s Lower Gallery in June for four FREE Friday-night concerts produced with Whitney Live, the museum’s year-round performance series.

At the Whitney’s invitation, we asked four of our favorite groups-The Berg Sans Nipple, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Prefuse 73, and Times New Viking -to do one Friday-night set apiece at the museum’s indoor/outdoor Lower Gallery space. We then invited another of our favorite groups-ACME, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble-to choose music from a broad and representative range of contemporary composers, and to come up with four complementary “classical” programs. What did they end up choosing? Chamber music, ranging from solo percussion to seven strings, by Ingram Marshall, Kevin Volans, John Adams, Chen Yi, and Jefferson Friedman.

Total cost to you, the consumer? $0.00.

About getting into these: museum admission is pay-what-you-wish during Whitney After Hours, Fridays 6-9 pm. Shows begin promptly at 7.
Space is *extremely* limited. Seating and admission for Whitney Live is on a first-come, first-served basis; reservations are not accepted. Sorry.

June 06 – The berg sans nipple
June 13 – A sunny Day in Glasgow
June 20 – Prefuse 73
June 27 – Times New Viking

The Wordless Music Series is also bringing Deerhoof to Prospect Park.
