|Unison Media’s acclaimed concert series The Crypt Sessions continues its third season on July 24, with a one-of-a-kind performance by tenor Lawrence Brownlee, accompanied by three of today’s top pianists: jazz giant Jason Moran, leading classical accompanist Myra Huang, and gospel great Damien Sneed.
Showcasing Brownlee’s broad musical range and tastes, the wide-ranging program will include spirituals, standards, arias, songs from Schubert’s Dichterliebe, and a movement from Cycles of My Being, the acclaimed song cycle composed for Brownlee by Tyshawn Sorey with lyrics by Terrance Hayes.
Each Crypt Session will feature a pre-concert reception of food and wine, included in the ticket price, before descending together into the Crypt.
All proceeds from ticket sales of The Crypt Sessions are donated to the Church of the Intercession, where the Crypt is located.
The Crypt Sessions will once again be made possible by the extraordinarily generous sponsorship of Yamaha, who provide their wonderful pianos for the performances.
Unison Media, creator, curator, presenter, and producer of The Crypt Sessions, recently announced the launch of a new sister series The Angel’s Share, featuring intimate opera and chamber music performances in the Catacombs of The Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. The series launches June 6, with the world premiere of David Hertzberg’s chamber opera The Rose Elf, directed by R. B. Schlather and starring Samantha Hankey.
