In Brooklyn catacombs, classical music rises among the dead

Oct 12, 2019 - 10:34 PM

'The music is not dead; it's the creativity of the approach in getting to audiences that feels more the issue to me,' says the founder of the cheekily named 'Death of Classical' series

People listen to a concert of the "Death of Classical" series at the Greenwood Cemetery on October 8, 2019 in New York City. Deep in one of New York's most prestigious cemeteries the eerie vibrations of a string concerto ricochet off catacomb walls, a seance of sorts invigorating the spirit of classical music. Media reports regularly warn of the genre's impending doom, but Andrew Ousley, who founded the cheekily named "Death of Classical" series, says the obituaries are beyond premature.
