96th-time host

Groupmuse is getting down and dirty in a multi-floor abandoned speakeasy in Long Island City..the kind they don't want you to know about.

We're featuring the 12-musician string ensemble Palaver Strings, hailing from Boston on their East Coast tour Simple Gifts. Palaver Strings is a musician-led string orchestra dedicated to the collaborative interpretation of classical masterworks and to taking classical music out of the concert hall into new settings -- including abandoned warehouses on the outskirts of NYC.

We're going to arrange the crowd Burning Man-style, in a gigantic circle surrounding the ensemble as they perform classical masterworks and folk melodies framed by works from American poets, artists, historical figures, and current visionaries, including Anton Arensky, Dowland, and Bèla Bàrtok. It will be a mass meditation on beautiful music old and new, featuring some of the finest young musicians in the Boston area.

After the performance, there will be dance! We've got some cutting-edge DJs lined up to take us out of our reveries and into the night.

*Bring a blanket or something to sit on! *

In tumultuous times throughout history, the value of the arts has been called into question. Even as artists, we often doubt ourselves and the worth we bring to society. Yet we know that in our field, we follow our own rules; we are not bound to tell linear or concrete stories. We have the freedom and the responsibility, to think for ourselves and push the boundaries of public thought.

As we embark on our tour through a divided country, we ask ourselves what we have to bring to communities as artists. Classical music is so often called irrelevant, its concert-hall audiences out of touch with the rest of modern society. At its best, though, this music has the power to transcend time and place.

On Palaver Strings' tour Simple Gifts, we will perform classical masterworks and folk melodies alike, framed by words from American poets, artists, historical figures, and current visionaries. Letting music take over where words fall short, we invite you to join us in a shared musical experience. As music gives us a time and place to reflect, we hope to bring communities closer together: made stronger by their diversity, wiser through dialogue, and more compassionate through shared experience. Palaver Strings' simple gift is music.

Groupmuse, 7 months ago

Alas dear groupmusers,

Due to unexpectedly high demand and the stubborn will of the powers that be, the plan to host tomorrow's massivemuse in our secret location has been blocked. We are stunned and disappointed by the last-minute turn of events, but have found an alternative space and are moving the production to a multi-floor abandoned speakeasy in Long Island City, located off of the 21 St - Queensbridge stop on the F train. The event will remain the same, so we'll still gather in a massive circle to enjoy a performance by Palaver Strings, and following the performance we'll have some raucous DJ sets and dancing. We do still ask that everyone brings blankets to sit on.

We apologize for this last-minute change and the inconvenience this causes; running a DIY event at the margins of what's permissible in NYC runs its risks and is part of the magic of our scrappy endeavor to bring classical music to ever expanding spaces. We invite those who can no longer attend the event to refund their tickets on the event page. However, the performance will be spectacular and the space is a special one, so we hope to see you tomorrow night!

Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions or concerns. We have updated the address on the event page, and you will also receive it Saturday morning as a reminder. All apologies once again for this unprecedented change so close to the event--rest assured we worked hard to make sure that this performance still happen and did not take this lightly.
