From “gritty, fearless” presentations of early music (The New York Times) to premieres of Pulitzer-prize winning works, conductor and composer Julian Wachner’s tireless musical output has left a lasting imprint on the musical life of New York City. Julian’s music has been called “bold and atmospheric” (The New York Times) and offering “a compendium of surprises” (Washington Post). Now, in honor of his 50th birthday, Julian returns to National Sawdust with friends and collaborators for Julian Wachner @ 50. Hosted by “vocally brilliant and dramatically fearless” countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo (The New York Times), this concert features performances of works by Wachner—including his epic Epistle Mass—from The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, NOVUS NY, and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler.

With an audacious libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs, this new striking production by director James Darrah takes us on a fantastical journey through the myths of our collective unconscious.
