GatherNYC presents some of New York City's finest musicians from the New York Philharmonic with artistic directors cellist Laura Metcalf and guitarist Rupert Boyd to perform a program of works by Antonio Vivaldi and Arnold Schoenberg.

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.

Pairing Schoenberg and Vivaldi may seem initially unconventional but between the inspiration behind Schoenberg's Verklarte Nacht -- a poem of the same name by German poet and writer Richard Dehmel, who was known for writing poetry using many different rhythmic patterns -- and Vivaldi's penchant for using repetition, clear form, and thematic inspiration in his music, the season's finale presents two kindred composer spirits separated more by centuries than creative instinct.
