“Sacred Space”: A concert of sacred music, but not the kind you’d expect! Featuring the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, Sacred Space is an original 7 poem-song cycle contemplating reality, life, death, and the afterlife. This is paired with a re-realized Quartet for the End of Time by Olivier Messiaen, arguably one of the greatest sacred pieces written in the 20th century.

Founders is a songwriting collective that flourishes in combining classical and folk music with original compositions and pop arrangements. With songs ranging from Appalachian themed originals to Radiohead covers to art songs using famous poetry, Founders is reimagining the boundaries of musical styles. As the New York Music Daily states, “Their excellent debut album, You & Who, is unlike anything else out there right now.”

Merging the talents of five conservatory trained musicians from New York City, Founders brings a fresh perspective on songwriting. Each musician has worked with acclaimed songwriters such as James Taylor, Sufjan Stevens, Sting, and Björk, as well as with elite classical ensembles such as Canadian Brass, A Far Cry, and Mahler Chamber Orchestra. They have been featured on the stages of Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Walt Disney Hall, and Lincoln Center as well as on television broadcasts such as The Late Show, and SNL. With acoustic instruments and their unique musical vision, Founders is forging a new path for audiences around the world.
