José González and yMusic: Lincoln Center ‘Out of Doors’ 2014 (Photos)

[19 August 2014]

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.
