What are you doing tomorrow?

Hopefully seeing Angels & Accordions at Green-Wood Cemetery.  Why?

Well, for one thing it’s going to be a beautiful day & maybe the last time all year you can see the breathtaking grounds of the Cemetery with such nice weather.

More than that, though- tomorrow is your last chance EVER to see this one-of-a-kind site-specific performance.

For the last seven years, DTE Executive Director Martha Bowers has directed the piece and produced it in collaboration with the Green-Wood Historic Fund.   Part walking tour, part performance, part guided meditation through the beautiful and richly historical Green-Wood Cemetery, Angels and Accordions brings to life a Brooklyn treasure through dance, live music, and design.

Tickets are offered at a discount if purchased in advance, so head over to the DTE site and choose the performance time (12:30pm or 4pm) you’d like to attend.
