Our second concert series, which takes place in the Catacombs of The Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, curated by Andrew Ousley in partnership with Green-Wood. The series takes its name from the distiller’s term for whiskey that evaporates while maturing in the barrel, thus going to the angels. Vogue Magazine described it as “One of the most riveting and unusual chamber music performances of my lifetime.”
