The Tenement Museum anticipates the New York Philharmonic's world premiere performance of Julia Wolfe's Fire in my mouth, exploring the devastating effects of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in 1911.
In this special tour, you’ll experience two Philharmonic musicians playing selections from Fire in my mouth inside Tenement Museum apartments at 97 Orchard Street. The tour visits the apartments of the Gumpertz, Confino, and Rogarshevsky families and connects through music to the stories of young immigrant garment workers in a changing industry.
Your evening will begin with a reception featuring a welcome from Composer, Julia Wolfe and live music. The reception will include mocktails with a historical twist and iconic foods of the Lower East Side.
After the reception, you will be escorted into a historic tenement building, where you'll visit three recreated family homes from different time periods where singers and history will surround you.
This tour is part of the New York Philharmonic's New York Stories: Threads of Our City. Learn more at nyphil.org/stories.
