ARKAI: Innovation and Exploration

Fri, August 7, 2020 8:00 PM, EDT

We're so thrilled to be sharing a high-energy, genre-bending program of original compositions and arrangements for you! Greek ἀρχαί meaning “source of action”, ARKAI channels the diversity of the world through genre-bending music and sonic exploration. Recent graduates of The Juilliard School, violinist Jonathan Miron and cellist Philip Sheegog's past engagements as ARKAI include performances at The MET Breuer, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall’s Studio 57, The Peace Studio, and the 92nd Street Y. ARKAI is a recipient of a Chamber Music America Ensemble Forward Grant, made possible with generous support from the New York Community Trust.

ARKAI: Innovation and Exploration


Think you know what a violin and cello sound like? We're pushing the absolute limits of our instruments through this program of original compositions and arrangements, drawing together musical styles and genres from around the world into a new, innovative fusion.

Philip Sheegog, about 2 years ago

Thank you all SO much for coming out last night to hear us play, even battered the bruised, the USS ARKAI will fly again! :)

Thank you also for your generous donations, we're so happy to be able to send a meaningful amount to the Lebanese Red Cross to support their work in Beirut.

There's a LOT happening in the coming weeks, so please be in touch and stay tuned to our website and social media to stay in the loop!
