Ira Glass, producer and host of public radio's This American Life, counterintuitively combines the worlds of dance and radio in this live stage production. Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host features the informative, moving essays and nonfiction stories listeners expect from Glass' Peabody Award-winning radio show. But he turns his trademark all-talk format on its ear by collaborating with contemporary dance troupe Monica Bill Barnes & Company. It's an unexpected evening filled with poignant audio clips and leaps and turns. Or, as Glass puts it, two art forms that "have no business being together." Learn More

The Canadian Brass are pleased to announce their upcoming annual New York City Holiday concert at the renowned Town Hall, continuing their long standing tradition of New York area performances in December.
Founded by Charles Daellenbach and Gene Watts in 1970, The Canadian Brass have set the standard for brass performance and recording. The light-hearted virtuosi of the ensemble have enthralled and captivated fans of all ages for nearly forty years. They perform works not only from the classical repertoire but also take daring leaps into jazz, contemporary and pop music idioms.
The Canadian Brass have been featured on such shows as The Tonight Show, NBC’s Today Show, and Entertainment Tonight, to name a few. They have appeared as guest artists on Evening at the Pops with John Williams and the Boston Pops, Beverly Sills’ Music Around the World, and numerous PBS specials.
Their performance comes on the heels of the release of their new album, Echo: Glory of Gabrieli (Opening Day Records), featuring music for single, double and triple brass choirs and organ. In the album, the ensemble brings its trademark virtuosity and artistic passion to antiphonal brass music by Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi and Samuel Scheidt, composers of the late Renaissance and early Baroque. The album’s title salutes Gabrieli, who was organist at the famous Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice at the turn of the seventeenth century and one of the first to compose music specifically for brass instruments and brass choirs.
