The singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane will perform. With the recent release of The Ambassador, Gabriel turns his gaze toward his birthplace, southern California, for his most focused album to date. Dividing his time between the club and the concert hall, Kahane has been commissioned by (among others) the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Carnegie Hall, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Kronos Quartet, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, with whom he toured last spring performing Gabriel’s Guide to the 48 States, an hour-long cycle on the WPA American Guide Series. He has appeared in recital with string quartet Brooklyn Rider at Carnegie Hall, at the Library of Congress with fellow composer-performer Timo Andres, and on tour throughout North America with cellist Alisa Weilerstein. In a few years, Gabriel has accrued a diverse list of collaborators, having performed or recorded with artists ranging from Sufjan Stevens, Rufus Wainwright, Chris Thile, and Brad Mehldau to Jeremy Denk, Jonathan Biss, and the composer and conductor John Adams.
