Sxip Shirley’s The Gauntlet
Sxip Shirley’s The Gauntlet West Dalehead Arch, Central Park at 7:00pm Make Music New York’s 2016 commission “The Gauntlet” returns to the festival in 2017 due to popular demand! This vocal program by composer Sxip Shirey calls for two rows of thirty singers to engage in a musical dialogue as audience members immerse themselves by walking, at their own pace, through the rows of paired singers, as if being carried by a river. Featuring the ensemble Choral Chameleon.
