GatherNYC, a revolutionary concert experience founded in 2017 by cellist Laura Metcalf and guitarist Rupert Boyd, continues its 2022-23 season at the series' home venue at Museum of Arts and Design (MAD).

On January 22, GatherNYC will present the Brentano String Quartet, in music by Joseph Haydn, Antonin Dvorak, Charles Ives, and George Walker. Since its inception in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet has appeared throughout the world to popular and critical acclaim. "Passionate, uninhibited and spellbinding," raves the London Independent; the New York Times extols its "luxuriously warm sound [and] yearning lyricism"; the Philadelphia Inquirer praises its "seemingly infallible instincts for finding the center of gravity in every phrase and musical gesture"; and the Times (London) opines, "the Brentanos are a magnificent string quartet...This was wonderful, selfless music-making." The Quartet has performed across five continents in the world's most prestigious venues, including Carnegie Hall in New York; the Library of Congress in Washington; the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam; the Konzerthaus in Vienna; Tokyo's Suntory hall; and the Sydney Opera House.

Guests at GatherNYC are served exquisite live classical music by New York's most celebrated artists, a taste of the spoken word, and a brief celebration of silence. The entire experience lasts one hour and evokes the community and spiritual nourishment of a religious service - but the religion is music, and all are welcome. Doors are at 10:30am, with complimentary coffee and pastries.
