The New York Philharmonic has announced the lineups for the first two installments of The 65th Street Session, a NY Phil presentation curated by Chris Thile, its 2022–23 Creative Partner, in the Wu Tsai Theater of Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall this fall.

The first performance, on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at 7:30 pm, reunites Thile with past collaborators: pianist and label mate Brad Mehldau and experimental folk project Tune-Yards. Thile and Mehldau made their duo debut together with their 2017 self-titled Nonesuch album, a mix of covers and original songs, about which the Guardian exclaimed: "Two very different musicians hit a remarkable rapport on this double album." The concert is part of HOME, the Philharmonic’s monthlong festival celebrating the reopening of the new David Geffen Hall.

For the second performance, on Tuesday, December 6, 2022, at 7:30 pm, Thile joins his fellow Punch Brothers for a stop on the American Acoustic Tour, featuring Americana duo Watchhouse and bluegrass singer-songwriter Sarah Jarosz. Punch Brothers' latest album, Hell on Church Street, released this past January on Nonesuch, is the band's reimagining of, and homage to, the late bluegrass great Tony Rice’s landmark solo album Church Street Blues, featuring an inspired collection of songs by Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Bill Monroe, and others.

Fan pre-sale tickets for both shows are available now at nyphil.org using code 65THSTREET at checkout. General on-sale begins Tuesday, September 13, at 10am ET. Lineups and ticket info for the final two performances, February 14 and March 28, 2023, will be announced at a later date.

    Makaya McCraven's new album, In These Times, is out now on International Anthem / Nonesuch / XL. It is the album McCraven’s been trying to make since he started making records, an appropriately career-defining body of work. The eleven-song suite was created over seven-plus years, as McCraven strived to fuse odd-meter compositions from his working songbook with orchestral, large-ensemble arrangements and the edit-heavy “organic beat music” he’s honed over the years. With contributions from over a dozen musicians and creative partners from his tight-knit circle of collaborators—including Jeff Parker, Junius Paul, Brandee Younger, Joel Ross, and Marquis Hill—In These Times highlights McCraven’s gift for collapsing space, destroying borders, and blending past, present, and future into poly-textural arrangements of post-genre, jazz-rooted 21st-century folk music.
