The Ecstatic Music Festival at Merkin Concert Hall seems like a great way to bring together a lot of rad talent that you wouldn’t necessarily see together.
…more than 150 composers, songwriters and performers re-defining contemporary music come together for collaborations exploring the fertile terrain between classical and popular music.
It kicks off this weekend, with a panel discussion featuring Dan Deacon, Nico Muhly, Valgeir Sigurosson, Missy Mazzoli and Tristan Perich. On Monday, there is a free SEVEN HOUR music marathon, featuring Muhly, Buke and Gass and a slew of other people. Free!
During the week Dan Deacon and So Percussion will team up for what will probably be a chaotic and amazing performance. Check out the video below for a taste of what to expect from that.
You can get tickets to any of the performances and check out the entire program schedule at the Ecstatic website.
