the long version

The Crypt has always been a place of remembrance, and in this final Ghosts of Gotham program, the cutting-edge instrumentalists of The Green Room Ensemble will shed light on the traces of the past, exploring the echoes of sound and feeling that linger long after we’re gone. Through their carefully-curated selection of contemporary works, written by composers across a broad spectrum of communities, cultures and histories, the ensemble – led by co-founder and violinist Nathan Meltzer – look at the present through the prism of the past, and the flickering, half-forgotten memories that float through the streets (and Crypts) of this timeless city.

The short version

The Green Room Ensemble has made it their artistic mission to amplify new music and works by historically underrepresented composers, and in this program they sift through layers of history to uncover the enduring sounds of what remains.
