Sigur Ros Members Perform at Lincoln Center

Three pieces written by and featuring members of Sigur Rós will be performed in collaboration with the Lincoln Center as part of the inaugural White Light Festival in New York, on November 15th, 2010.

The evening, billed under the simple banner Credo in most listings, actually features three separate works, only one of which is Kjartan Sveinsson’s composition for choir and orchestra of that name. In addition guests can experience ‘Cage A Swallow Can’t You But You Can’t Swallow A Cage’, Kjartan’s arrangement for the human voice of Canadian poet Ann Carson’s work, as performed by the Hilliard Ensemble, as well as the world premier live performance of music from Jónsi & Alex”s ‘Riceboy Sleeps’ project as played by the pair with a full orchestra.

You can still get tickets for this event here and anyone attending the Credo event and presenting their ticket stub for Jónsi’s solo show at the Hammerstein Ballroom five days previously (Nov 10th) will be able to claim a free commemorative poster from the merch stand.
