The Tony Awards will be broadcast live from Lincoln Center in New York City this Sunday at 8pm ET on CBS. Illinoise: A New Musical—the cast of which will perform at the ceremony—is nominated for Best Musical, Best Orchestrations for Timo Andres, Best Choreography for Justin Peck, and Best Lighting Design of Musical for Brandon Stirling Baker.

Here Lies Love is up for Best Original Score for David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, Best Sound Design of a Musical for M.L.

Also at Lincoln Center this weekend, Kronos Quartet live-scores filmmaker Sam Green’s A Thousand Thoughts: A Live Documentary at Alice Tully Hall on Saturday, with performances in the afternoon and evening, as part of Lincoln Center’ Summer for the City series and its program celebrating Green’s films. As part of the series, tickets are available on a choose-what-you-pay basis. The multimedia experience—called “mind-blowing” by Newsweek and “magical" by the Los Angeles Times—blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with some of the many artists with whom Kronos has collaborated, like Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man, and Terry Riley. As Green tells the multi-decade and continent-spanning story of the quartet, Kronos revisits its extensive body of work, performing music by George Crumb, Laurie Anderson, John Adams, Clint Mansell, John Zorn, Aleksandra Vrebalov, and many others. These are the final NYC performances of A Thousand Thoughts, as well as the final NYC performances of longtime Kronos members Hank Dutt and John Sherba, who are retiring from the ensemble at the end of the month, and of the group’s longtime manager Janet Cowperthwaite.

Just up the street, Yasmin Williams performs at Kaufman Music Center tonight, as part of the New York Guitar Festival, before heading down to Virginia for a performance with Shenandoah Conservatory’s student ensembles in Winchester on Sunday, the final concert of the inaugural Shenandoah Guitar Festival. Last fall, Williams released her first song on Nonesuch, “Dawning.” The track—featuring Aoife O’Donovan on vocals, Kafari on rhythm bones, and Nic Gareiss’ percussive dancing—provides an early peek at her Nonesuch debut album, due later this year. You can hear the song and watch the video for it here.

Meanwhile, down in Brooklyn, Ringdown—the cinematic pop duo of creator-musicians Caroline Shaw and Danni Lee—plays at MITU580 on Sunday, as part of ChamberQUEER 2024's Closing Night Celebration. Ringdown released “Two-Step,” its first single via Nonesuch Records, this past March; you can hear it here. The duo can also be heard on “Slow Motion,” a track from Caroline Shaw and Sō Percussion’s new album, Rectangles and Circumstance, out today on Nonesuch. Last month, Shaw, Sō, and Ringdown stopped by WNYC to perform on an episode of New Sounds focused on the music of Sō's Jason Treuting. They give live performances of three songs from the new album: Shaw and Sō on “Sing On,” joined by Ringdown on “Slow Motion” and “The Parting Glass.” You can watch all three and hear the full episode here.

Shaw stopped by for the Nonesuch Selects video series, in which artists visit the Nonesuch office, pick some of their favorite albums from the music library, and share a few words on their choices. She chose recordings by Rhiannon Giddens, Dawn Upshaw, Gabriel Kahane, Mountain Man, Steve Reich, and Chris Thile. You can watch that here.

Natalie Merchant helps celebrate the opening of the Library of Congress’s new David M. Rubenstein Treasures Gallery this week, including a livestreamed concert in the Library’s Coolidge Auditorium last night and an all-ages folk music sing-along there on Saturday morning at 10:30am. Merchant is a serving member on the board of the Library’s American Folklife Center. Her tenth solo studio album, Keep Your Courage, was released last year on Nonesuch.

Jeremy Denk gives a solo piano master class, The Roots of Mastery, at Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall in Santa Barbara, California, this afternoon. Denk was on BBC Radio 3's Saturday Morning to speak with host Tom Service, who says of his guest: “He's someone who has the gift to turn complex music and ideas into dazzlingly communicative performances and prose, above all in his approach to all the music he plays, from Bach partitas to Mozart concertos to Charles Ives.” You can hear their conversation as well as music from Denk’s album of Mozart piano concertos with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and an exclusive first play from his upcoming Ives album here.

Chris Thile joins the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, led by Eric Jacobsen, for performances of his new piece, ATTENTION!—A narrative song cycle for extroverted mandolinist and orchestra, at Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach tonight and Ferguson Center for the Arts in Newport News on Saturday. The San Francisco Classical Voice, reviewing the West Coast premiere of ATTENTION! with Thile and the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl last year, called it “always entertaining … an eclectic soup that takes in bluegrass licks, rock, folk, and classical strains.”

Bass-baritone Davóne Tines performs the role of Jim / Mercury in the world premiere of George Lewis’ opera The Comet / Poppea, featuring a libretto by Douglas Kearney and direction by Yuval Sharon, at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles tonight and Sunday afternoon. Additional engagements, featuring a rotating cast of performers, run through June 23.

Davóne Tines and his band THE TRUTH released “LET IT SHINE,” the first song from their new work ROBESOИ, last month on Nonesuch. “As this ‘Let It Shine' progresses,” says WNYC's Soundcheck, “Tines begins to show off his remarkable ability to soar into heights that a so-called ‘bass-baritone’ simply has no business being in.” Details of the forthcoming ROBESOИ album, Tines’ solo recording debut, will be announced soon.

Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway bring music from their critically acclaimed new album, City of Gold, to the KCBX Stage at El Chorro Regional Park in San Luis Obispo, California, tonight, for Live Oak Music Festival. The band joins Old Crow Medicine Show for concerts at Fox Theatre in Oakland on Saturday and Hayden Homes Amphitheater in Bend, Oregon, on Sunday. City of Gold won the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album and the International Folk Music Award for Album of the Year.

    Laurie Anderson will give the world premiere of ARK: United States Part 5, a new live stage work, at Aviva Studios in Manchester, England, November 12–24, 2024. "For a long time I’ve wanted to make a new large-scale work about the United States—a collection of songs and stories about what has shaped this country in the 21st century," she says. "I plan to tell these stories moving through myth, journalism, fable, and TikTok, conjuring alternate realities and stories from my own life. Part ruminations, part long-form poems, ARK will also be a kind of 3D movie."
