With cooperation from the New York Department of Health and a collaboration with NY PopsUp, the Guggenheim is able to open up safely for live indoor performances. The reduced capacity will allow the Guggenheim to be among the first venues in the state to permit indoor performances since shuttering a year ago, marking a “milestone in the recovery of the city’s cultural sector.”
The series features short, surprise pop-up performances held in the museum’s iconic Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda. David Rosenboom, former dean of The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts and current faculty, has collaborated with Works & Process for the performances held Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11, both of which feature CalArts Music alumni:
Saturday, April 10, 1:15-1:45 pm: saxophonist Ochion Jewell and pianist Cat Toren
Sunday, April 11, 1:15-1:45 pm: pianist Amino Belyamani, bassist Sam Minaie, and saxophonist Jewell
For a chance to view the pop-up performances, purchase a timed admission ticket to the museum. Note that each party is limited to nine individuals in order to create a socially distanced experience, as the museum continues to operate with limited visitor capacity.
The series launched on March 19 (just before the start of spring) and runs until April 19.
