The National: Benefit Concert for Hawthorne Valley + MASS MoCA
Co-presented with Higher Ground Presents.
The Ohio-raised, Brooklyn-based band, The National consists of vocalist Matt Berninger plus two pairs of brothers: Aaron Dessner (guitar, bass, piano) and Bryce Dessner (guitar), and Scott Devendorf (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums). The band has landed on every “best of” list in print. Its half dozen albums receive critical praise surpassed only by the adoration of its devoted audience. Rolling Stone declares, “The National have always been fueled by a mix of big-time artistic ambitions and deep-rooted family values.”
The National in concert is a benefit for Hawthorne Valley Association and MASS MoCA. Since opening in 1999, MASS MoCA has become one of the world’s premier centers for making and showing the best art of our time. With annual attendance of 160,000, it ranks among the most visited institutions in the US dedicated to new art. More than 80 major works of art and more than 50 performances have been created through fabrication and rehearsal residencies in North Adams, making MASS MoCA perhaps the most fertile site in the country for new art. The museum thrives on making and presenting work that is fresh, surprising, and challenging.
All concert ticket holders receive half-off museum admission June 10-12.
