Made in Brooklyn will take place Nov. 6 at NS, a new performance space that opened Oct. 1. Formerly a sawdust factory, the venue underwent a $16 million retrofitting and is now home to contemporary music programming. The space can accommodate up to 350 people. In addition to Gershwin's work, the Taylor-helmed concert will feature the music of Oscar winners Aaron Copland, John Corigliano and Elliot Goldenthal. It will also feature the world concert premiere of Goldenthal’s String Quartet No. 1 "The Stone Cutters" performed by Flux Quartet; and the "Chaconne" from Corigliano’s Academy-Award winning score for "The Red Violin," performed by Tim Fain and Stephen Gosling.
NS is an artist-led, non-profit venue dedicated to providing a home and support for composers and musicians across varied genres in which they can develop new work. Visit NationalSawdust.org for more information.
