We're going BIG with the programming for this groupmuse! We don't want to STRING you along, so we'll tell you right away that we're excited for this program.

Many of us at Juilliard are returning to NYC now that our summer travels abroad to festivals are ending, so this groupmuse would bring us back in the rhythm of performing together again!

In the first half, we will perform all movements of the timeless string quartet by Dvorak composed during his time in the United States:

Antonín Dvořák
....STRING QUARTET No. 12 in F MAJOR, Op. 96 ("American") (1893)
(~25 min)


Mark Applebaum
....Aphasia (2010)
(~10 min)

Louis Andriessen
....WORKERS UNION (1975)
(~16 min)

For this last piece, we'll be joined by percussion and saxophone to venture into music that was written for "any loud sounding group of instruments." There are no specific pitches for each instrument, but everyone plays the notated rhythmic patterns. It is not easy to play the same rhythms completely together ...similar to how it is not easy to organize action together as a group.

Any back-up plan if it turns rainy/stormy?

Mosa Tsay, almost 5 years ago

Hi all,

Looking forward to tonight!

Due to the rain, we'll be moving indoors. More details soon from Sam, our host! We've been in contact about the possibility of rain since yesterday.

Don't worry, the weather won't rain on our parade!

Hi Everyone! We're excited to see you tonight. Due to the weather, we're moving the venue a block and half away to an indoor space.

The new address is 650 Franklin Ave at Franklin Electric. Please go directly there for the concert.

NOTE: this space has a lot of stainable surfaces, so we ask that you don't bring or drink any RED WINE. White wine and beer are fine. Thanks!

We'll see you tonight!

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the email spam, but I just wanted to make sure everyone gets the address:

650 Franklin Ave, Brooklyn, NY
Venue is called Franklin Electric

Music will begin between 8:15-8:30pm, with the Dvorak starting the evening, intermission, then Tyler's Aphasia performance and Workers Union.

See you soon!
