In conjunction with the opening of Greater New York, Sunday Sessions presents the work of three New York vocalists and composers from the alienating and howled vocals of Pharmakon; the negrogothic doom spirituals and counter tenor of M. Lamar to a rarely performed work by the late American composer Robert Ashley presented by experimental composer and vocalist Paul Pinto. ‘The Voice’ is accompanied by a work for the MoMA PS1 restrooms titled Bathroom Songs presented by New York soprano Gelsey Bell.
