Description

STONEFEST
3 nights, 33 musicians, curated by John Zorn.

StoneFest is a new music festival curated by John Zorn in partnership with The New School's College of Performing Arts.

Each evening of the three-night festival is curated to include four performances that run the spectrum from jazz to classical to rock to free improv. The inaugural StoneFest will present three shows per night over three consecutive nights – with 33 musicians in total taking the stage.

StoneFest precedes the upcoming completion of the relocation of The Stone, the landmark non-profit performance space founded by John Zorn and dedicated to the experimental and avant-garde, to The New School’s Glassbox Theater. As first announced by The New York Times, The Stone at the New School will offer concerts five nights a week at The New School’s Glassbox Theater beginning on February 28, 2018.

The Stone at The New School serves as an artist-centric home and community for experimental and avant-garde artists, where they can perform what they want without any interference. With concerts every Friday and Saturday evening in the Glass Box Theater, The Stone at The New School continues the tradition of the landmark non-profit performance space founded in 2005 by Artistic Director John Zorn, within a greatly improved space.

Admission: ONE LOW PRICE FOR THE ENTIRE NIGHT, FOUR SETS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! $25 advanced online sales; $30 at the door (credit card only; no cash)
