the long version

What do you get when you combine Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw and Grammy Award-winning cellist Andrew Yee? We don't entirely know, but we're 100% certain it's going to be a supernova of awesomeness, and that you do not want to miss it...

These two majestically gifted souls will bring their talents to a program of new compositions (written by them) and re-workings of other pieces (also written mostly by them) - including the world premiere of a piece inspired by Green-Wood's extraordinary tree collection.

There will be two specially-priced evening shows (twilight and moonlight) that include a complimentary whiskey tasting, and one afternoon music-only performance with both free and $15 tickets. Get them before they're gone!

The short version

This one-night-only event will answer the long-pondered question of just how much towering talent we can cram into a single Catacomb... join us to find out!
