In advance of the special concert series The Psalms Experience, WNYC’s John Schaefer and guests explore the history of the Psalms, their many musical traditions, the challenges of translation, and their contemporary resonance in a more secular world. Panelists include scholar and Psalms translator Robert Alter, musicologist Neil W. Levin, and David Van Biema, Time magazine’s former chief religion writer.

Mozart: Divertimento in F major, K.138

Pergolesi: Stabat mater

In Pergolesi’s ravishingly spare Stabat mater—composed weeks before his death at age 26—he personalizes the religious experience through the heartrending song of Mary’s suffering at the scene of the Crucifixion. Choreographer Jessica Lang adds “gracious flow and arresting gesture” (New York Times) to this union of sacred music and dance, in which countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and soprano Andriana Chuchman perform what Rousseau called “the most perfect and touching duet to come from the pen of any composer.”

Rose Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th Street

Atrium 360°

Edna Vazquez

Folk, rock, pop, mariachi, and jazz are woven together in the light-filled music of Portland-based singer-songwriter Edna Vazquez. Born in Mexico, Vazquez moved to the States as a teenager, and her music attests to the process of reconciling her bicultural roots and, above all, tapping into universal human emotion. Powerful vocals and irrepressible spirit make for a fantastic live show.

The Moth has emerged as a champion of oral tradition and an inspiring literary phenomenon. Famously note-free, the collective’s live events crackle with immediacy and connection, reintroducing humanity to the stories we tell each other.

Román Díaz, an olù batá (master drummer) came to New York City from Havana in 1999 and has since become a mainstay in the avant-garde jazz and Afro-Cuban music communities.

About the Series

Outside (In)dia is a four-part concert series produced by The India Center Foundation and curated by Brooklyn Raga Massive that pushes the boundaries and conceptions of Indian classical music.

LC Kids Storytime at the Atrium

“Read the Book, Lemmings!” by Ame Dyckman

The team behind The New York Times best-selling Wolfie the Bunny and Horrible Bear! is back with new Arctic characters in this hilarious learning-to-read adventure. Aboard the S.S. Cliff, First Mate Foxy reads an interesting fact: "Lemmings don't jump off cliffs." But Foxy can't get the lemmings on the Cliff to read his book, too. They're too busy jumping off. After a chilly third rescue, exasperated Foxy and grumbly polar bear Captain PB realize their naughty nautical crew isn't being stubborn: The lemmings (Jumper, Me Too, and Ditto) can't read. And until Foxy patiently teaches his lemmings to read the book, he can't return to reading it, either!

Recommended for ages 2–5

Samora Pinderhughes: The Transformations Suite

The Transformations Suite by composer, pianist, and director Samora Pinderhughes is centered in the belief that there is a soundtrack to every revolution. The expansive work, which was released as an album in 2016 and has been performed at venues across the Americas, brings together music, theater, and slam poetry to examine the radical history of resistance within communities of the African diaspora. Continuing in the tradition of artists like Bob Marley, Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye, Billie Holiday, and Tupac Shakur, Pinderhughes connects contemporary issues, such as the prison industrial complex and the Black Lives Matter movement, with the history of revolutionary movements of color. A graduate of The Juilliard School, Pinderhughes has performed at the White House, MoMA, the Sundance Film Festival, Carnegie Hall, the Public Theater, and (le) poisson rouge, among other venues. He has toured internationally with artists including Branford Marsalis, Christian Scott, and Emily King.
