Free Events, Free Things to Do in New York City!  Read More

135 free concerts take place New York City right now! In addition, Club Free Time members get free tickets to the concerts which are not free for general public, but are free for our members: when a producer wants that special buzz of the 'full house' at a concert - Club Free Time members are welcomed for their enthusiasm and sophistication! All they have to do is to login to www.clubfreetime.com and make a reservation.

As for the plethora of free concerts which take place in NYC year round, on weekdays and weekends, during lunch time, late afternoons and various evening hours: many people think that free concerts take place in NYC only during Summer, but nothing can be further from the truth.

Here are the numbers so you could see for yourself: about 1000 free concerts take place in NYC from mid-September to the end of May; and about 600 free concerts take place during the three Summer months (that 600 number excludes June's Make Music New York as on that single day more than 400 free concerts take place in NYC to celebrate Solstice).

As the number of free concerts per a summer month almost doubles the number of free concerts per month during other three seasons, you sure hear more about Summer free concerts.

In addition, Summer free concerts get more publicity, as such major popular concert series as New York Philharmoinic in the Parks, Metropolitan Opera Recital Series, Summer Stage and Celebrate Brooklyn all take place during summer months.

In addition, it's of course lots of fun to spend your lunch or your evening listening to the music you love and to picnic along, but your soul needs those nourishing sounds during other seasons as well.  So keep in mind that in New York City you can attend a free concert practically any day of the year, except maybe such major Hollidays as July 4th, Thanksgiving and the Christmas Day.

So please keep in mind that whether it's a weekday or a weekend, a holiday or just a regular day or a weekday night, you can alwasy count on Club Free Time when you want to listen to your favorite music, free of carge.

Concert | Voices of a People’s History


This latest iteration of the now seven-year-long Lincoln Center commission series Voices of a People’s History continues our revitalization of the work of Brooklyn-born author, activist, and academic Howard Zinn as we celebrate the year of his centenary. This live event focuses on Zinn's timeless and insightful book, A People’s History of the United States, a document of the vital everyday epics of common people engaged in the life and death struggle for justice: abolitionists, activists, protesters, founders of the first American unions, suffragettes who advanced women's rights, and pioneers of gay liberation. All these heroic voices will be brought to life in performance by a chorus of young student activists who have been mentored by Voices teaching artists to find personal meaning in these timeless texts.

Concert | Brooklyn-Based Synth Auteurs


Brooklyn-based synth auteurs Nation of Language first arrived in 2020 as one of the most heralded new acts inspired by the early new-wave and punk movements. The band quickly earned a reputation for delivering frenzied nights of unconventional bliss to rapt audiences, and established themselves as bright young stars emerging from a crowded NYC landscape prior to their release of one of the most critically acclaimed debut albums of the year - Introduction, Presence. The band’s ability to blend the upbeat with a healthy dose of sardonic melancholy made it a staple on year-end ‘Best of’ lists and landed the band major radio play from The BBC, KCRW, KEXP, SiriusXM and countless others.

Opera | Handel's Masterpiece Orlando: Hero of Love in a Garden


Hans Tashjian, Bass; Jeffrey Mandelbaum, Countertenor; Elyse Anne Kakacek, Lyric Soprano; Heather Hill, Soprano; Hai-Ting Chinn, Mezzo Soprano; Rebecca Pechefsky, Harpsichordist, Baroque String Quartet (Rebecca Nelson, Rafa Prendergast, Jessica Park & Cullen O'Neil) Orlando, a knight from the Crusades, is originally the central character of an epic poem by Ludovico Ariosto. The story dramatizes his struggle between love and military glory. However, this production updates this conflict to reflect contemporary sensibilities, centering the questions of what it means to love truly, and how to endure pain and loss. George Frideric Handel brought baroque opera to its apogee, as his compositional brilliance amplified music's distinct power to communicate drama. Opera began as an experiment to demonstrate music's ability to reveal and manipulate the emotions behind a text, as opposed to solely mimicking the words. Baroque music relies heavily on a technique of bittersweet dissonance resolving into consoling consonance, which impacts a listener viscerally. The term "baroque" connotes this kind of lavish intensity, which captivates audiences' passions, bringing them personally into the experience.

Concert | Audio Experience of Electronic Music: Over 100 Speakers


Over one hundred audio speakers will bathe the audience in sound, an audio experience they could not possibly replicate at home. A guided tour of contemporary electronic music runs from music composed for a single moving speaker to a work that exploits the full 102-speaker Meyer Sound Constellation, using dozens of speakers mounted all around the audience in the four walls and the ceiling of the concert space. The program crafted by composer Greg Wilder includes seminal selections from Frank Zappa, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jean-Phillippe Rameau, Wolfgang Miterer; music that's rarely been heard in the way the composers intended. Commentary throughout the program will illuminate the dramatic shift in the way people will be creating and experiencing music for decades to come. Must be fully vaccinated with a valid photo ID. Must wear N95, KF94, or KN95 high-grade mask while at the venue.

Opera | Handel's Masterpiece Orlando: Hero of Love in a Garden


Hans Tashjian, Bass; Jeffrey Mandelbaum, Countertenor; Elyse Anne Kakacek, Lyric Soprano; Heather Hill, Soprano; Hai-Ting Chinn, Mezzo Soprano; Rebecca Pechefsky, Harpsichordist, Baroque String Quartet (Rebecca Nelson, Rafa Prendergast, Jessica Park & Cullen O'Neil) Orlando, a knight from the Crusades, is originally the central character of an epic poem by Ludovico Ariosto. The story dramatizes his struggle between love and military glory. However, this production updates this conflict to reflect contemporary sensibilities, centering the questions of what it means to love truly, and how to endure pain and loss. George Frideric Handel brought baroque opera to its apogee, as his compositional brilliance amplified music's distinct power to communicate drama. Opera began as an experiment to demonstrate music's ability to reveal and manipulate the emotions behind a text, as opposed to solely mimicking the words. Baroque music relies heavily on a technique of bittersweet dissonance resolving into consoling consonance, which impacts a listener viscerally. The term "baroque" connotes this kind of lavish intensity, which captivates audiences' passions, bringing them personally into the experience.

They’re not your daughter’s K-Pop band. The nine-piece South Korean ensemble ADG7 (Ak Dan Gwang Chil) draws equal inspiration from newly reclaimed Korean folk styles of gut and minyo and the contemporary Eurocentric stylings of modern K-Pop for music for a mix that will surprise you with its raucous, danceable energy. The band’s charismatic and ultra-fashionably dressed trio of frontwomen are backed by masterfully played traditional Korean instrumentation and present a distinctively theatrical style of performance that's like nothing you've ever heard before, but that you'll never forget. Fresh off of their recent show-stopping Tiny Desk Concert, you won't want to miss the crowd-pleasing sonic sensations that The New York Times calls “catchy, bouncy and brash."

Identical twin sisters Katie and Allison Crutchfield haven’t always played music together—like their early project PS Eliot—but when they do, it’s easy to see the talent and passion they share.

Anywhere alumn -which has evolved from a solo acoustic act into the lush country-tinged rock arrangements of her latest album Saint Cloud; and Swearin’, Allison’s band with Kyle Gilbride, Amanda Bartley and Jeff Bolt, whose self-titled 2012 debut remains a Philly indie rock classic. They’re joined by Chicago duo Ohmme, touring in support of their 2020 LP Fantasize Your Ghost.

Concert | K-Indie Music Night


The undeniable chart-topping popularity of K-Pop has raised Korea to the heights of global creative influence, but that's not all Korea has to offer! The country's thriving independent rock scene offers a nuanced counterpart to K-pop's glossier production. K-Indie’s diverse expression of sound - from guitar-driven, underground post-rock to mellow, lo-fi electronics - mark it as the likely next big thing in Korea's role as a cultural exporter.  This show spotlights two of the genre's best bands: Jannabi, who specialize in lyrically wistful, vintage-pop artistry and the more new wave-inspired, three-piece modern rock collective byebyesea.
