Black Angels On The USS Intrepid

19/10/2015
Iconic Piece to Be Performed on National Landmark
On Tuesday October 20th at 7:30 PM the Kronos Quartet will perform George’s Crumb’s Black Angels . The venue of choice is perhaps what makes this performance special --- The Intrepid Sea, Space and Air Museum, located in New York City. The USS Intrepid is the legendary American aircraft carrier that served in the Pacific theatre of World War II, in Vietnam, and as the recovery vessel for Gemini and Mercury space missions. The Museum is currently running an exhibit that showcases the Intrepid’s service during the Vietnam War and joins in the celebration of the conclusion of the war 40 years ago. The Kronos Quartet performance is part of a public program that will enhance the exhibit. Black Angels was inspired by the sounds of the Vietnam War, so to have a performance take place on a vessel that fought in Vietnam is an innovative way to remember and honor those involved. Following the performance
