Share Christina and Michelle Naughton: An American in Paris

Event Details

The Washington Post writes of twin sister piano duo Christina and Michelle Naughton, “They have to be heard to be believed.” And indeed, the pair performs with an almost inconceivably telepathic connection. For The Angel’s Share, the Naughtons will play a program bookended by Leonard Bernstein, in celebration of his 100th birthday year (and because his final resting place is but a stone’s throw from the Catacombs). In between, the sisters will alternate between American and French composers, including Ravel’s shimmering Ma mère l'Oye and Debussy’s En Blanc et Noir.

The Program: Bernstein: “Overture to Candide;” Ravel: Ma mère l'Oye; Nancarrow: Sonatine; Poulenc: Sonata for Four Hands; Bolcom: Recuerdos; Debussy: En Blanc et Noir; Copland: “El Salon” arranged Bernstein

The Performers: Christina Naughton, piano; Michelle Naughton, piano

The Angel’s Share, a new series of opera and chamber music concerts, takes place in Green-Wood’s Catacombs. One of the oldest structures in the 478-acre National Historic Landmark Cemetery, the Catacombs were built in the 1850s and are normally closed to the public. The series takes its name from the distiller’s term for whiskey that evaporates while maturing in the barrel, thus going to the angels.

Each performance includes a pre-concert reception at sunset overlooking New York harbor and the Manhattan skyline.

$75 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $80 for non-members
