GatherNYC Presents The Overlook Quartet: New York Stories

May 14, 11 amnoon.

GatherNYC presents the “breathtaking,” “paradigm-shifting” (New York Music Daily) string quartet The Overlook. In “New York Stories”, the quartet will be highlighting composers whose work has deep connections to New York City, including Shelley Washington, Jessie Montgomery and Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson. The event also features a spoken word performance by the poet and writer J. Mae Barizo, as part of the tour for her newest book of poems called “Tender Machines.” The Overlook has recently been heard live in New York City at Lincoln Center, Kaufman Music Center, Fotografiska New York and Wave Hill, in a virtual performance presented by the Metropolitan Museum of Art that has been streamed nearly 70,000 times, further afield from Mass MoCa to Albuquerque, NM, and countless other performances since its inception in June 2020.
