As the 450th anniversary year of the great composer Salomone Rossi (1570 – 1630) draws to a close, we proudly present Babylon, a new video release featuring actor Ezra Knight, the Kaleidoscope Ensemble, the Bacchus Consort, Voices of Music, Jessica Gould, Lucas Harris, and others, with works by Rossi and a world premiere by Brandon Waddles (1988 – ).

The text of Psalm 137 has resonated with oppressed peoples through the centuries. Please join Salon/Sanctuary Concerts, the Kaleidoscope Ensemble, and NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò for this special video project, as we follow Babylon’s waves from Ghetto to Ghetto and Renaissance to Renaissance on December 15th at 5:00pm on youtube and facebook.

On December 16th at 5:00pm, the video will be released on the website, youtube and facebook pages of NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò. At 5:30, a panel discussion will take place live on the zoom platform of Casa Italiana, featuring SSC Founder and Artistic Director Jessica Gould, Kaleidoscope Artistic Director Dr. Arianne Abela, and composer Dr. Brandon Waddles.
