The cultural influence that the late musician, iconoclast, and actor David Bowie had on millions of people can’t be overstated. The late British star, who called New York his home, recorded his final album Blackstar in secret. A star-studded orchestra arranged by Evan Ziporyn and featuring solo cellist Maya Beiser, will perform the album in full, along with a special performance by the Donny McCaslin Group, whose ensemble worked with Bowie on Blackstar.
Named after and headquartered at the acclaimed New York City venue Le Poisson Rouge, Ensemble LPR is an assemblage of New York’s finest musicians. The group personifies the venue’s commitment to aesthetic diversity and artistic excellence. This event is presented as part of the venue’s 10th anniversary season, LPR X.
