2016 SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT

SA_hero

Basilica is thrilled to announce its 2016 season, which will once again include a wide range of innovative, avant-garde live performance, music, film, literary, farm and community programs. We’ll kick off the season with the second annual 24-HOUR DRONE, and the addition of a Basilica Farm & Flea Spring Market. Summer brings freaky favorites on Flag Day and the newly added Read & Feed, bringing together artisanal makers of food with artisanal makers of literature. In Fall, we’ll return with Basilica SoundScape, the Basilica Farm & Flea Holiday Market, and more very special events to be announced!

As always, we’re excited to be working with a far-reaching group of extraordinary artists, makers, and talented community members. We look forward to welcoming audiences from all over, whether they be from around the corner or from around the world. (more…)

2015 IN MUSIC

Season Five: Year In Review

health-sammarble

This year, Basilica launched the first annual stateside installment of 24-HOUR DRONE: Experiments in Sound and Music, an adventurous collaboration with Le Guess Who?, an annual festival in Utrecht, Netherlands. Summer began with our favorite ritual recognition of the (FREAK) Flag Day tradition in Hudson, helmed by darkwave goth queen Shannon F of Light Asylum with special musical guests and freak flag-making workshops. For the first time, the hallowed Main Hall was filled with opera arias when we collaborated with Il Cuore Canta (The Heart Sings), a workshop and concert series. It was wonderful to see our industrial church lend itself equally to chamber music by the rising young artists of the Catskill High Peaks Festival, the post-rock squall of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and intensity of talent at the fourth annual Basilica SoundScape. We wrapped up our season with CELESTINE V: A NIGHT OF ASTRAL SOUND, a celebratory sonic embrace of darkness and light.
