Death of Classical presents intimate, emotional, and wildly unique classical music and opera experiences in unusual and clandestine spaces like Crypts, Catacombs, Caves and more… our mission is to create a focused and intensely moving experience around the art form that we love, with programs ranging from the baroque to the brand new, performed by some of today’s most extraordinary artists. Oh, and we also include a free spirits tasting before each show.
All Death of Classical events are created and curated by DoC Founder & Artistic Director Andrew Ousley.
“In the sacred space, each hushed passage sounds like a forlorn benediction.”
“Sensitively programmed events in which music and architecture almost meld...the gothic vaults that harbor the ashes of the dead also enliven sound, coating melodies in a reverberant glow while leaving a core of clarity.”
