Italian Expressiveness and Expressionists Quartet at Brooklyn Bridge Park

Sept 23, 2021 (Rain Date: Oct 1)

Brooklyn Bridge Park


Join us on Thursday, September 23 at 6:00pm for a free chamber music concert at Pier 3 Greenway Terrace in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Experience the vibrancy of Italian chamber music from a charming corner of the city. A string quartet of ASO musicians performs a program that spans four centuries, from Isabella Leonarda, a 17th century Ursuline Nun, to the 20th century expressionist and avant-garde composer, Niccolò Castiglioni. The finale of the concert will feature the soaring melodies and filigreed lines of the 19th century bel canto master, Gaetano Donizetti.

Advanced RSVP encouraged. Click here to register. We will do our utmost to accept walk ups as space allows. Artists, staff, and audience members will be required to follow all current COVID-19 guidelines.


The ASO’s Chamber Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
