Rite of Summer: Collaborative Arts Ensemble
Collaborative Arts Ensemble
Collaborative Arts Ensemble was founded in 2017 as a way to promote social understanding in the world. Our roster consists of thirty world-class interdisciplinary artists dedicated to creating theatrical concert programs that might open pathways for community building dialogue in concert halls, community centers, and schools so as to reinforce respect, empathy, and appreciation for all human beings. Every concert created by CAE artists tell a story: text, music, and physical movement that embody a time of history, a social justice issue, or an important question. We tell our stories by fusing art forms into one another and celebrating each unique outcome, believing that these collaborations offer our audiences multiple entry points into every story shared.
Rite of Summer
Now in its eighth season on Governors Island, Rite of Summer is a classical contemporary music festival that takes place over four weekends during the summer months. The festival features many of NYC’s most engaging and innovative artists & ensembles. The Rite of Summer “concert hall” is Colonels Row, a short walk from both the Manhattan & Brooklyn ferries.
