Alarm Will Sound “Ten Thousand Birds”
Friday, August 7, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The highlight of PS21’s summer season will be the New York State premiere of Grammy Award-winning composer John Luther Adams’ “Ten Thousand Birds,” which is set to be performed by the acclaimed Alarm Will Sound ensemble. The performance, conceived and designed by Alan Pierson and directed by Alan Pierson with acclaimed opera and theater director Ashley Tata, will transform PS21’s open-air setting: as the birdsongs become music, the entire surroundings become a performance space, blurring the lines between human creativity and natural phenomena.
Note: PS21 is serious about the safety of our artists and public. Our open-air theater will accommodate 25 pairs of seats, less than 20% occupancy of our 350-seat Pavilion Theater. Our summer plan incorporates recommended health and safety guidelines from the State and CDC. PS21 Guidelines: https://ps21chatham.org/safety-guidelines/
Tickets sold in pairs.
The performances will also be livestreamed free through PS21’s Facebook account.
