BEFORE THE EUROPEAN TOUR (Part 1)
On October 9, 2015, Friday, ensemble mise-en will be hosting Acoustic #6 at our home studio location, MISE-EN_PLACE, situated in the heart of Bushwick. The concert will start at 8pm and will feature compositions in preparation for the mise-en European tour. The European tour is from October 22-30, and mise-en will be going to Sweden, Lithuania (GAIDA Festival) and Latvia (ARENA Festival).
This season’s ACOUSTIC+ series focuses on collaborative performances of new works for live performers with/without multimedia components. The series’ concept is thus: for each concert, a New York City composer (selected from the academic and musical community of which ensemble mise-en is itself a part) curates a program of new music for ensemble mise-en and him or herself.
Composer Moon Young Ha is now in his fifth season as the artistic and chief executive director for MISE-EN. As the founder, Moon seeks to cultivate large scale composition projects such as this one. MISE-EN is a virtuoso ensemble dedicated to innovative musical performance and discovery of daring artistic paths. Championing cutting-edge contemporary composers, as well as framing classical collection in new contexts, mise-en inspires musical inquiry through pushing the boundaries of classical music with riveting performances that reach across genres and generations and transcend the confines of the traditional classical concert experience.

*Spots was designed to be inserted between other compositions, similar to how commercials play during a TV show. Therefore, we will not list Spots’ individual movements, as they will act like commercials between the other pieces on the program.
Tickets will be available at the door and can be purchased for $20 general admission or $15 for students and seniors. Your ticket will also include a complimentary drink.
MISE-EN_PLACE is located in the heart of Bushwick at 678 Hart St #1B, Brooklyn, NY 11221. Directions: M train to the Central Stop or the L train to the Dekalb stop.
