ETHEL, the resident ensemble at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art’s Balcony Bar, will perform in Edmunds Hall on the Presbyterian College campus on Tuesday, Oct. 22. The concert is the second in PC’s 2019-20 Performance Series.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door.
ETHEL’s program “Grace” is described as a “journey toward redemption in music.”
The program includes ETHEL’s adaptation of Ennio Morricone's Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning score to the 1986 film, “The Mission.”
Also featured in the program is ETHEL’s setting of: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s “Gorakh Dhanda Ho” (Pakistani Qawwali), a theatrical spirit-play “Mare Jatralu” (Hindu Kirtan), Zuni and Hawaiian ritual sun chants, and “O Frondens Virga” by the 12th century German abbess Hildegard von Bingen.
“In complex, stressful and challenging times, music provides both an immediate means of relief and a vessel for long-term healing and understanding,” according to ETHEL’s artists’ management group.
“ETHEL has pursued this art in many ways over the years, in its own creative voice, opening its heart and skills to intimate collaboration with master artists from diverse cultures across the globe.”
