The Vietnam War: At Home and Abroad

Zankel Hall
The Friction Quartet performs George Crumb’s amplified string quartet Black Angels, a searing response to the Vietnam War. The program also features live performances of pop and folk music from the 1960s—from Pete Seeger to Woodstock—coupled with photographs and film footage. Narrated by John Monsky, the creator of this multimedia presentation and others like it at the New-York Historical Society, this event captures the war’s intense emotions on the battlefield and at home.
