A Global Piano and Literary Salon
In partnership with PEN World Voices Festival and Piano Culture
Travel around the world first-class as The Greene Space teams with PEN World Voices Festival and Piano Culture to explore global culture through evenings that bring together great literature, brilliant music, fine wine and delicious food.
Each event spotlights an author reading an excerpt from a recent work of critical acclaim that is reflective of a national origin. Readings are in the author’s native tongue with English subtitles. The authors share the stage with musicians who perform classical, jazz and other idioms to enhance the sense of visiting a unique national culture. The author and pianists then join the audience, sharing ideas and revelations with a moderator while all enjoy food and wine from the country of origin.
