In his book Vanishing New York, Jeremiah Moss argues that gentrification and rising income inequality are causing the city to slowly lose its soul. Join Seth Boustead, composer, Executive Director of Access Contemporary Music and host of WFMT Chicago’s Relevant Tones, for a live broadcast exploring the issue’s impact on music with Moss, Open House New York executive Director Gregory Wessner, architect and author of A Country of Cities Vishaan Chakrabarti, and NewMusicBox co-editor Frank J. Oteri.
Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect, members from Opera on Tap (Kamala Sankaram, Kristin Gornstein, Kannan Vasudevan, Matthew Curran), and conductor Mila Henry will perform music by New York composers who flourished in a bygone, some say golden, era.
On the program: music by cellist, composer, and pop music phenom Arthur Russell; a New York City–premiere choral piece by Julius Eastman (The Moon’s Silent Modulation); and a forgotten gem by Tui St. George Tucker
