José González and yMusic at Lincoln Center Out of Doors

31 Jul 2014: Damrosch Park Bandshell — New York

José González’s delicate songs were reframed at Lincoln Center’s ‘Out of Door’s Summer series with the addition and incorporation of chamber orchestra arrangements (by Rob Moose) as part of a collaboration with yMusic. Unbeknownst to me and perhaps much of the audience, the performance was held on the same day as González’s birthday, so it was a pleasant surprise (for him too I’m sure) to wish the musician a “Happy Birthday” at the end.
  
Watch a video of “Heartbeats” and one of the crowd singing “Happy Birthday” to González below and then check out a larger gallery of images on Facebook.
