This event is now sold out. Check the LA Phil's website, as sometimes, tickets open up.

Songwriter Sufjan Stevens and composer Nico Muhly join the LA Phil's Brooklyn Festival, which celebrates contemporary music and artists of Brooklyn with an evening of experimental compositions.

For Monday evening's slate, Stevens and Muhly team with The National's Bryce Dessner for the West Coast premiere of 'Planetarium,' which mixes Steven's vocals with Muhly's eccentric tonal compositions.

From the LA Phil's website:

In the second half, Stevens' voice anchors a planet-by-planet song cycle that melds the collaborators' distinct creative contributions into a harmonic whole. The cycle unfolds against the backdrop of a giant orb that morphs to reflect the characteristics of the sphere being celebrated.
