The Green-Wood Cemetery is thrilled to announce a new series of concerts featuring boundary-breaking performers in its historic Catacombs.

Dating back to the 1850s, when they were established as an affordable alternative to traditional burial spaces, the Catacombs are rarely open to the public—except for these special programs. The acoustic quality of this cavernous, underground space makes it a truly original and atmospheric stage.

The season opens with Bell, along with special guests, and will include Palestinian Kanun player and composer Firas Zreik, violinist and performance artist eddy kwon, electro-acoustic artist Zeena Parkins, and free jazz legend William Parker.
