The Crypt Sessions

The award-winning classical music concert series in the Crypt under the Church of the Intercession in Harlem, curated by Andrew Ousley. The New York Times placed us among their top Classical concerts of the year, and said “In the sacred space this hushed passage sounded like a forlorn benediction,” while New York Magazine praised the series as “sensitively programmed events in which music and architecture almost meld.”

The Crypt Sessions are a *phone-free experience*! Before descending to the Crypt, all phones will be secured in individual pouches that will be re-opened at the end of the event (you'll be able to keep your phone with you, just not accessible).

“Sensitively programmed events in which music and architecture almost meld...the gothic vaults that harbor the ashes of the dead also enliven sound, coating melodies in a reverberant glow while leaving a core of clarity.”

The Venue

The Church of the Intercession

The Church of the Intercession is an Episcopal Church located on West 155th and Broadway in New York City, convenient to the 1, C, B and D trains. At Intercession you will be surrounded by a beautiful building but more importantly in an open and welcoming community.

“The numinous setting of Crypt Sessions lends emotional power to the series’ genre-bending programs.”
