Magnificent Bird

Performance Dates

  • Fri Oct 07 2022 8:00 PM


Meany Hall – Studio Theatre

Considered by The New Yorker to be “one of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day,” Gabriel Kahane reveals his most personal work in a decade. With his new album, Magnificent Bird, Gabriel Kahane chronicles the final month of a year spent off the internet. Shuttling between the quotidian mundane and overlapping global crises, he sings of grief, nostalgia, shame and salvation: a portrait of daily life in the roiling chaos of the 21st century. Kahane brings this fully realized set of songs back to Meany after a work-in-process performance in fall 2021. Co-commissioned by Meany Center.

For this concert, Kahane will be joined by FREQUENCY, featuring Michael Jinsoo Lim and Jennifer Caine Provine (violin), Melia Watras (viola) and Sarah Rommel (cello).


Kahane [finds] beauty and meaning by stirring together the flotsam and daily particulars of life with existential concerns.
