Stevens is popular with the Brooklyn crowd, and not just because he lives here. He has produced some excellent albums which have helped to boost his growing loyal audience. One of his pieces is quite a favorite with the Brooklyn natives; a 2007 ode which was oddly dedicated to the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in the film “the BQE” which was scored with instrumental music commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music as an element of the Next Wave Festival which BAM produces.
The shows of Sufjan Stevens are much more than concerts, but are more like musical events. Stevens plays a variety of instruments, makes use of complex and elaborate lighting effects, costumes, and choreography to create a musical experience.
The summer season of free concerts is coming to an end, and what better way to end this glorious season than with an exciting concert with Sufjan Stevens.
