The Long Story

Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time was composed in a Nazi prison camp, where it was premiered in the pouring rain by starving inmates playing on broken instruments. To this day, it stands as one of the most utterly profound and transcendent meditations on mortality and eternity - music steeped in mystery, born out of a deep faith unshaken by the horrors surrounding it. It shows us a vision of immortality that lies in songs of the birds, the trills in the trees, shimmering rainbows, and a single cello line reaching toward the divine.

Each of the four performers - Stefan Jackiw, Jay Campbell, Orion Weiss and Yoonah Kim - could fill a concert hall on their own. But this classical supergroup will come together in the Crypt to pour their near-limitless musical talents into a single, unified expression of what it means to find beauty in the darkness.



The Short Story

Come stand at the edge of the abyss with us, and listen to something that will remind you that there will always be things in life that are beyond our comprehension.


There will be a wine and cheese pre-concert reception at 7:00 (included in ticket price) before descending into the crypt.

*Thank you to our beloved sponsor Yamaha!*
