Neighborhood Concert: Brooklyn Rider

Abrons Arts Center at Henry Street Settlement

466 Grand Street (at Pitt Street) | Manhattan

The young men of Brooklyn Rider look hip, dress hip, play hip. Whether working with A-list composers, playing with hotshot artists from around the world, rocking out in clubs, or carving out its own original pieces, this group is revolutionizing the staid image of the traditional string quartet. Brooklyn Rider has a surprisingly simple approach: Treat all music, old or new, as fresh compositions. The high-energy group’s sense of adventure, surprise, and fun in performance “demystifies contemporary classical music and invites everyone into the tent” (Time Out New York).
