SUN, FEBRUARY 2 CONCERT: SONIC ESCAPE
The Music Makers: How The Music And Stories Of North America Came To Be
Sonic Escape‘s most exciting, virtuosic and emotive musical works are presented in the context of five settings—The Campfire, The Parlour, The Session, The Protest and The Workplace. Each is brought to life as Sonic Escape weaves folk, classical, pop, bluegrass, protest songs and sea shanties into a tale of how North America’s music came to be. The Music Makers is about communal gatherings, sharing songs and stories and raising the spirits of all. Works to be performed include Maria Millar’s Walking the Woods in Twilight and Mosquito Blue, Franz Joseph Haydn’s London Trio No. 3 in G, Wade Hemsworth’s The Log Driver’s Waltz and traditional songs, such as “We Shall Overcome,” “When Johnny Comes Marching Home” and “Rolling Down to Old Maui.” The musicians of Sonic Escape—Shawn Wyckoff (flute), Maria Kaneko Millar (violin) and Nan-Cheng Chen (cello)—call themselves “daredevils” with instruments. This program shows us why! One hour, no intermission. General Admission Tickets $32, $28 Senior, $18 child (ages 7 to 18); Wave Hill Members $22; child $12. Tickets on sale online, onsite at the Perkins Visitor Center or by calling 718.549.3200 x251.
