The Angel's
Share

A new concert series in the Catacombs of The Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, presented by Death of Classical and Green-Wood, curated by Andrew Ousley. The series takes its name from the distiller’s term for whiskey that evaporates while maturing in the barrel, thus going to the angels. All pianos are generously provided by our sponsor Yamaha.

the long version

We’ll be launching Season 2 of The Angel’s Share with the first-ever “Burgers, Bourbon & Beethoven Festival.” What’s that, you ask? Oh no big deal, just literally **the best event ever conceived in the history of humanity.** It starts with Burgers - four different slider recipes, served up to you straight from the grill, which you’ll rate on the Burger Club (www.brgrclub.com) website. Then it goes to Bourbon - tasting a generous spread of top-notch spirits from some of the area’s finest purveyors. And it finishes, as all good parties must, with a rousing performance of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, performed by the String Orchestra of Brooklyn, conducted by Eli Spindel.

The short version

No disrespect to Bach and Brahms, but there's a new Three Bs in town…

In The Media

“One of the most riveting and unusual chamber music performances of my lifetime”

- Vogue

“Live opera, staged among the dead...evocative...at Green-Wood, [Ousley] is upping his game.”
