Thanks to lostinbrooklyn for the photo and the information about this event in Green-Wood Cemetery. You can see a few photos from last year by doing a flickr search.

As part of CCGH's art, music and cultural outreach to our community:

The Green-Wood Historic Fund and Dance Theatre Etcetera Present:
Angels & Accordions

A site-specific, live music and dance performance, held in conjunction with openhousenewyork, that guides audience members through historic Green-Wood Cemetery’s rolling hills, highlighting its unparalleled collection of sculpture and monuments. This unique event, choreographed by Martha Bowers of Dance Theatre Etcetera, features a cast of 30 dancers, original music by Guy Klucevsek and Bob Goldberg (played live by a band of accordionists), singing, and a visual installation inside the Catacombs designed by photographer Alexander Heilner. Several tombs will be open to the public.

A not-to-be-missed encounter with one of Brooklyn’s great historic treasures!
