Our current signature music programs are:
FOLKLURE is a call to the toe-tapping, harmony-humming, string-strumming musicians who keep this city singing! Born out of the longing for a bygone era of collaboration and new creation, FOLKLURE offers a safe space for artists to share and be heard, where music can be made and rearranged and everyone’s along for the ride! Share a song at the Open Mic, sing along at the All Together Now jam, and have a listen to some of the city’s best singer/songwriters in our Songwriter's Circle! Click HERE for more info!
All the Notes, All the Rhythms showcases new music performance groups and bands. Groups in the 2013-14 season included Pitch Black Brass Band (the only hip hop brass band in NYC doing a classical music recital), PRIVATE ELEVATORS, and Flow State (a rock/jazz/classical band that plays music written by Ben Brody).
