Muscota March Harmony


Muscota Marsh Harmony at Muscota Marsh, Inwood Park from 7:45-8:30pm

This site-specific, vocal program by composer John Hastings integrates the local environment, community and history of the northernmost part of Manhattan Island and invites the audience to wander through the performance as it unfolds.

The 44 minute performance features 4 singers (Kristen Kasarjian, George Kasarjian, Jeff Gavett, & Nina Dante) as well as four speaker operators (John Hastings, Caroline Hastings, Terrance Solomone, and Kim Blair). The singers move through the park singing a particular series of notes while also singing melodies from the childhoods. The speaker operators carry recorded interviews with a variety of community members, telling of their experiences of living in what we affectionately call Upstate Manhattan.
