The Very Best Of NYC Music

Isle of Klezbos, Stonewall Chorale and more…


Isle of Klezbos are bringing their delightful klezmer sounds to brunch at City Winery on Mar 15, which promises to be a great new tradition for downtown NYC. City Winery is a new project by the founder of the (recently closed) Knitting Factory, and combines wine and music with a spacious venue and great food. The ladies of the Isle of Klezbos, who can be heard on the L Word Sessions soundtrack, will be joined by two special guests.

The Stonewall Chorale will perform their program, “Eternal Light”, on Mar 28 at the Church of the Ascension. The group is self-described as the world’s first gay and lesbian chorus, and has approximately 60 voices coming together to make “multi-voiced music of artistic integrity.” The venue has been described as one of the city’s finest acoustic environments. Together, the evening promises to be an amazing aural experience.

Greenwich House Art presents the first concert in its Women’s Work 2009 series, titled “Piano on a Wire,” taking place on Mar 18. The evening is produced and hosted by Beth Anderson, a critically acclaimed composer of neo-romantic, avant-garde music, text-sound works, and musical theater. The program is selected by the artists who are performing and will focus on recent piano and vocal chamber music by prominent contemporary women composers from Asia, Europe and the Americas.
