TILT: A Celebration of Light and Music on the Summer Solstice at Grace Cathedral

SEE EVENT DETAILS
2024 marks the centennial of the premiere of George Gershwin's iconic jazz concerto "Rhapsody in Blue." In honor of this milestone and TILT's 5th anniversary, we are proud to present A Blue Solstice: Rhapsody in Blue Celebrates 100 Years.

And as the sunlight fades from the glittering stained glass windows, revel in a gorgeous rendition of "Rhapsody in Blue," performed by virtuosic pianist and producer Ronny Michael Greenberg, with the Telegraph Quartet. And continuing this breathtaking tribute to Gershwin, the mesmerizing and fiery mezzo and aerialist Nikola Printz will sing a "blue"-themed program including classic Gershwin hits, while performing on a trapeze in mid-air above the cathedral labyrinth.

And we'll be bringing the sunset indoors courtesy of Mad Alchemy, a company that has been mesmerizing audiences with its Analog Liquid Light Show since 1971.

What is TILT? The name TILT refers to the angle of the sun at the summer solstice, the point where the sun appears to reach its highest point in the sky for the year (the word "solstice" combines the Latin words sol for "sun" and sistere for "to stand still"). TILT is also a different angle on music, an intimate concert in celebration of light, taking place in the marvelous ambiance of Grace Cathedral on the longest day of the year.

We begin the evening with The Warm Up, a reception with a signature TILT cocktail, local craft ales, and bistro bites.

TILT is in memory of Paul Crane Dorfman (1939-2018), a good friend of the cathedral who loved music, culture, houses of worship, fresh ideas, and mentoring young people.
