Twenty-year-old poet and Bed-Stuy native Ishmael Islam was named the New York Youth Poet Laureate in 2012, and now he teams up with members of the Brooklyn Phil to take the spoken word tradition into the 21st Century.

This multi-faceted concert intertwines selections from Islam’s debut collection, Meet at Greene, with contemporary chamber music for strings by Mark Mellits, Don Byron, and Randall Woolf.

Presented in conjunction with the Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend Events.
