The Pawling Concert Series (PCS) will welcome the ground-breaking string quartet Brooklyn Rider on Friday, October 13. The concert, the first of PCS’s 44th season, will be held at 8:00 p.m. at All Saints’ Chapel on the Trinity-Pawling School campus. The concert is sponsored by Brook Farm Veterinary Center.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brooklyn Rider is composed of “four classical musicians performing with the energy of young rock stars jamming on their guitars, a Beethoven-goes-indie foray into making classical music accessible but also celebrating why it was good in the first place.”
Hailed as “the future of chamber music” by Strings magazine, Brooklyn Rider’s eclectic reach is reflected in their recent work, an album with Anne Sofie von Otter which includes music by Nico Muhly, Björk, Sting, Kate Bush and Elvis Costello; a tour last summer with the choreographer Brian Brooks and former New York City Ballet prima ballerina Wendy Whelan; a recording project with Béla Fleck.
The Pawling Concert Series is presented, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature, and through funding from Dutchess Tourism, administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.
In addition, this series has been generously underwritten by: Andron Construction, Castagna Realty, Joseph Meunier & Sons, and Joe Pietryka Inc.
Tickets are available at the door, at the Book Cove in Pawling Village, and online at www.pawlingconcertseries.org. Adult tickets are $30; children 12 and under are admitted without charge.
