Orff’s Carmina Burana pulses with springtime life, the text of this cantata taken from the bawdy writings of medieval monks who had more on their minds than scripture. That same spirit lives in Augusta Read Thomas’ 2010 orchestral showpiece, Jubilee, which The New Yorker calls “joyous and electric.” Between these, a work of exquisite musical reflection by Bach, his concerto for oboe d'amore, the duskier cousin of the modern oboe.

We’re sending out a Bat Signal … you’re invited to Batman in Concert. Watch Tim Burton’s 1989 film (PG-13) on the big screen as the New Jersey Symphony performs Danny Elfman’s score, live.
The Oscar-winning movie stars Michael Keaton, Kim Basinger, Billy Dee Williams and Jack Nicholson as the scene-stealing Joker. Danny Elfman came up with Batman’s theme while on a long flight—ducking into the airplane bathroom multiple times to record himself singing the melody so he wouldn’t forget. The flight attendants were suspicious, but it became one of the most iconic superhero themes of all time.
Dress up in your favorite Batman or DC cosplay for this event—but no swooping through the air, please.

This concert is presented in collaboration with the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.

GatherNYC presents multi-instrumental quartet Invoke. Described as “...not anything but everything: Classical, Folk, Bluegrass, Americana and a sound yet to be termed seamlessly merged into a perfect one” (David Srebnik, SiriusXM Classical), Invoke strives to successfully dodge even the most valiant attempts at genre classification. Fueled by their passion for storytelling, Invoke weaves all of these styles together to form a unique contemporary repertoire, featuring original works composed by and for the group.
GatherNYC is a revolutionary concert experience founded in 2018 by cellist Laura Metcalf and guitarist Rupert Boyd. The 2023-24 season at the series’ home venue, Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in Columbus Circle, includes 16 concerts and runs from October 22, 2023 through May 26, 2024, with concerts held every other Sunday at 11am in The Theater at MAD.
Guests at GatherNYC are served exquisite live classical music performed by New York’s immensely talented artists, artisanal coffee and pastries, a taste of spoken word, and a brief celebration of silence. The entire experience lasts one hour and evokes the community and spiritual nourishment of a religious service – but the religion is music, and all are welcome. Coffee and pastries are served before each performance at 10:30am.
