A Second Simplicity

St. John's in the Village, 218 w. 11th street (Waverly Place), New York, NY

A return to simplicity – and the possibility of sharing its joyful wisdom – is the subject of this concert. Externally resembling some elements of childhood naiveté, the simplicity of the second half of life, deepened by life experience, is able to live happily with paradoxes, doubts, and mysteries. Ember turns to the life wisdom offered by such disparate sources as Rabindranath Tagore, Ysaÿe Barnwell and Stephen Sondheim among others – and draws upon the extraordinary solo talents for which the Ember singing family is known. Tickets in advance online for $20; at the door for $25. Seniors/students, $15; children 18 and under are free of charge. For more information go to www.EmberEnsemble.org or call 888-407-6002 Ext.5.
