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 are raucously excited and profoundly thrilled to invite you to the second coming of Nightfall, the mad, dark, and beautiful celebration of life, death, and all that's in between, that stretches across the twisting paths and magnificent monuments of the Green-Wood Cemetery, from the Gothic Arch to the Catacombs and back again.

Thousands of candles will light your way as you trace a narrative of love, loss, pleasure, pain and the impermanence of all that we hold dear.

Musical performances will be curated by your very own friends at Death of Classical, and other creative forces involved include Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Morbid Anatomy, The Moth, Pioneer Works, and Rooftop Films.
