Just announced: 5th anniversary season kicks off with Jeff Mangum in Boston

In September of 2006, the Wordless Music series presented its first concert at the 250-capacity Good Shepherd Faith Church on West 66th Street in New York City. Five years later, we are slightly shocked and humbled to announce the start of our 5th anniversary season with a true musical great: Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, performing his first U.S. live shows since 1998, and in two of the country's great historic acoustical treasures: on Friday, September 9, at the 1,150-capacity Sanders Theatre at Harvard University in Cambridge; and Saturday, September 10, at the 1,050-capacity Jordan Hall at New England Conservatory in Boston. Tickets for these concerts will be $35 and open to audience members of all ages.

Presales for the Jordan Hall concert start at 10am this Friday, February 25 via the Jordan Hall box office; a larger allotment of Jordan Hall tickets will be sold through the same outlets starting at 10am on Saturday, February 26.

Presales for the Sanders Theatre concert start at 12pm next Thursday, March 3 via the Harvard box office; a larger allotment of Sanders Theatre tickets will be sold through the same outlets starting at 12pm on Friday, March 4.



Also on sale this Friday, Feb. 25: a small number of GY!BE tickets to be released
On four consecutive nights beginning Tuesday, March 15, Wordless Music teams up with our friends at The Blackened Music Series to present the first NYC and Brooklyn shows in eight years by the reunited Montreal orchestral-rock collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor, at two of New York's most extraordinary venues--the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in Manhattan and the Brooklyn Masonic Temple in Fort Greene. This Friday, February 25, at 12pm noon, a very small number of tickets to Godspeed's Thursday and Friday (March 17-18) shows at St. Paul the Apostle will be released for an exceedingly short time via this link and this link. Tickets are $25 general admission, open to audience members of all ages, and will not last very long at all.


Next month: Tyondai Braxton with the Wordless Music Orchestra
Rapidly approaching in March: the first-ever tour of the Wordless Music Orchestra with composer and multi-instrumentalist Tyondai Braxton, formerly of Battles, performing new works for orchestra and electronics from Braxton's recent Warp Records solo debut Central Market and music by John Adams, Louis Andriessen, and Caleb Burhans for concerts at Alice Tully Hall in New York (as part of Lincoln Center’s Tully Scope festival), the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., and Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Tickets for the Library of Congress concert have been nearly all scooped up; tickets for Lincoln Center and the Walk er Art Center are still on sale.


Also in March: Deerhoof curates + headlines Carnegie Hall's 2011 Japan NYC festival
On Monday, March 14 at Le Poisson Rouge, Wordless Music co-presents a special collaboration with Carnegie Hall as part of their 2011 Japan NYC Festival, for which the great Tokyo/San Francisco noise-pop group Deerhoof will curate and headline a bill of specially chosen artists representing the best of contemporary experimental music from Japan. With sets from Deerhoof as well as friends and band favorites Ichi and If By Yes (Yuka Honda and Petra Haden).


"T. 1912: Gavin Bryars' The Sinking of the Titanic" at the Guggenheim
In April, as part of the Guggenheim Museum's spring exhibition "The Great Upheaval: Modern Art from the Guggenheim Collection, 1910-1918," the Wordless Music Orchestra will collaborate with artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster for "T. 1912": a performance installation of Gavin Bryars' ambient classic The Sinking of the Titanic in the historic Guggenheim rotunda, in which the audience also plays a role. "Boarding" for the early and late performances of "T. 1912" will close at 8:40pm and 10:40pm.


And the 2011-12 season finale:
On May 20 and 21, Wordless Music concludes its fourth season with the United States premiere of Doghouse, the longest and largest work yet for orchestra by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, on a program with the first New York City performance of Philip Glass / David Bowie / Brian Eno's Symphony No. 4 ("'Heroes,'" based on the music of Bowie and Eno) and György Ligeti's Chamber Concerto, all performed by Ensemble Signal with the Wordless Music Orchestra and conductor Brad Lubman. Tickets for the May 20 and May 21 concerts at the New York Society for Ethical Culture are now on sale.
