UNCHARTED: Erin Markey and Emily Bate

May 12, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| $15
Erin Markey and Emily Bate explore their onstage vocal chemistry by way of borrowed and original duets. Inspired by listening to Barbara Streisand’s Duets on long drives to Michigan, they are interested in buttery-throated passion and indulgence in the key of “Guilty.”
Complimentary beer and wine is served prior to and during all concerts.

Following a triumphant 2015 concert series, Greenwich House Music School is proud to present Uncharted 2016, a concert series featuring high-profile local artists debuting first-time performances of new work or new collaborations. The Uncharted concert season covers a broad selection of performative genres, from jazz to traditional folk, electronic to classical, cabaret to tap dance. Performances for Uncharted will take place every Thursday from March 24 to May 12. 

“The Uncharted series was founded as a safe space for artists to take risks,” says series curator Jennie Wasserman, formerly of SFJAZZ, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Joe’s Pub and Carnegie Hall. “Last season’s collection of sold-out concerts proved that audiences are always excited to hear something new from their favorite performers. That success has emboldened us to vary our lineup even further. Greenwich Village is one of America’s oldest and most successful social melting pots; reflecting the neighborhood’s artistic excellence and diversity is one of the goals of our programming.”

Performances start at 8:00 p.m. Concerts are staged at Greenwich House Music School under the chandeliers of its Renee Weiler Concert Hall, an intimate 100-capacity room featuring excellent acoustics, a welcoming neighborhood vibe and a pair of Steinway grand pianos. All shows are general admission and open to all ages. Complimentary beer and wine is served prior to and during all concerts.
