BCMF at the Parrish: Deep Rivers

ADDED PERFORMANCE: MONDAY, 8/10 AT 4 PM. ORDER TICKETS

For the second year the Parrish Art Museum and the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival co-present an evening of inspiring chamber music with Deep Rivers.

The incredible mix of cultures that defines the American “Experiment” also created entirely new music. Spirituals, Gershwin’s popular Preludes, Aaron Copland’s wry take on the American Songbook, Bernstein’s jazzy sonata, as well as a Northeast premiere of a poignant work reflecting on the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights marches, all come together in a one-hour program that explores history through sound, expressing the brash originality and unique story of America. 

Arrive early and explore the Parrish Art Museum, attend a pre-concert conversation with composer Mohammed Fairouz, then enjoy a glass of wine with the concert.
