"An arty quartet … mixing ideas from jazz, new classical, and Appalachian folk” (The New York Times), The Westerlies is composed of childhood friends Riley Mulherkar, Chloe Rowlands, Andy Clausen and Willem de Koch. Their Wave Hill program titled Wherein Lies the Good is a bold and ferociously unique vision of brass, as works originally written for string quartet, solo piano and the human voice are reinvented through their kaleidoscopic lens.

In this special program for Wave Hill audiences, The Westerlies present a bold and ferociously unique vision of brass, as works originally written for string quartet, solo piano, and the human voice are reinvented through their kaleidoscopic lens. Original compositions and works from their latest, critically-acclaimed quartet album Wherein Lies the Good are presented alongside a reimagining of Caroline Shaw's landmark string quartet Entr'acte. Imbued with the spirit of improvisation and a folk-like approachability, Wherein Lies the Good presents The Westerlies at their best, cutting new trails across the vast expanse of the American musical landscape. Selections to be announced from the stage.

The concert begins at 2PM and lasts approximately one hour without intermission. Ages 8 and older welcome with an adult.

Registration required, online or by calling 718.549.3200 x251.
