Philip Glass: Music With Friends

Friday, July 13, 2012 to Sunday, July 15, 2012

Philip Glass

Legendary composer Philip Glass, both controversial and ever-present, has captured the American public perhaps more than any living composer. For his operas, symphonies, compositions for his own ensemble, and wide-ranging collaborations Glass has had an unprecedented impact upon the musical and intellectual life of his times.

For three intimate evenings, Philip Glass comes to ISSUE Project Room, New York's City's only European Chamber Music Hall. His only performance in Brooklyn this year, "Philip Glass: Music With Friends" is a rare occasion featuring Glass in duo performances with Laurie Anderson [6/15], Jon Gibson [6/14], and Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields [6/13], as well as Tara Hugo [6/15], and former ISSUE Artists-in Residence Tristan Perich [6/14], Nate Wooley [6/13], and Ryan Sawyer with Ben Vida [6/15]. Under 200 seats will be sold for each performance.
