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

281 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.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Jazz | Jazz Drummer Leads a Vibrant Sextet


Inspired by the musicianship of greats such as Clifford Brown, Max Roach, Jackie McLean, Cannonball Adderley, Dr. Billy Taylor, Art Blakey, and Billy Higgins, drummer Winard Harper has been the leader and musical inspiration for a vibrant sextet for almost a decade. The group appears regularly all over the United States from the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. to Yoshi's, the legendary West Coast jazz club. Although clearly the dominant force behind this extraordinarily gifted ensemble, Harper has surrounded himself with superbly talented young guardians of the jazz tradition (including Lawrence Clark, Ameen Saleem, Josh Evans, Stacy Dillard, and Alioune Faye), who are as entertaining to watch as they are to listen to.

Classical Music | Grammy Nominated Chamber Orchestra Performs Works By Tchaikovsky And More


Program Georg Muffat, (1653-1704), Concerto Grosso No. 12 "Propitia Sydera" (1701). Caroline Shaw, (1982), Entr'acte, (2011, adapted for String Orchestra by A Far Cry 2014). Lembit Beecher, (1980), Conference of the Birds, (2017, Premiered with A Far Cry, 2018). Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, (1840-1893), Serenade in C Major, Op. 48, (1880). A Far Cry stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music. According to The New York Times, the self-conducted orchestra "brims with personality or, better, personalities, many and varied." A Far Cry has developed an innovative process where decisions are made collectively and leadership rotates among the "Criers." For each piece, the members elect a group of principals, and these five musicians guide the rehearsal process and shape the interpretation. Since each program includes multiple works, this multiplicity of leaders adds tremendous musical variety to the concerts. A Far Cry's omnivorous approach has led the group to collaborations with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Jake Shimabukuro, Urbanity Dance, and Roomful of Teeth. The orchestra has been embraced throughout the world with hundreds of performances coast to coast and across the globe, and a powerful presence on the Internet. In 2014, A Far Cry launched its in-house label, Crier Records, with the album Dreams and Prayers, which received critical acclaim and a Grammy nomination.

Concert | Americana And Baroque Folk Pop 


“In its own quiet way, I’m With Her is a supergroup” (The New York Times).  In their solo careers and with their other bands, Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan have each been key players in the folk-Americana revival; as a sublime trio, they’ve become its heart and soul. I’m With Her is a band rooted in a rare alchemy: three celebrated songwriters coming together to create music that reveals entirely new possibilities in their distinct and deep-seated talents. Since forming in 2014, Watkins, Jarosz, and O’Donovan have imbued their songs with a sharply detailed lyricism, graceful musicianship, and—perhaps most powerfully—mesmerizing harmonies that endlessly reflect their extraordinary chemistry. The "exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque folk-pop" (NPR Music) of Darlingside will set the tone for an evening of exceptional musicianship and beautiful harmonies. The Boston-based quartet draws frequent comparisons to late-'60s era groups like Crosby, Stills & Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, and The Byrds, but their penchant for science fiction and speculative futurism counteracts any urge to pigeonhole their aesthetic as "retro."

Opera | Handel's Rinaldo


The New York Opera Forum presents a concert version of the opera Rinaldo by George Frederick Handel. Rinaldo is an opera by George Frideric Handel, composed in 1711, and was the first Italian language opera written specifically for the London stage. The story of love, war and redemption, set at the time of the First Crusade, is loosely based on Torquato Tasso's epic poem Gerusalemme liberata ("Jerusalem Delivered"), and its staging involved many original and vivid effects. It was a great success with the public, despite negative reactions from literary critics hostile to the contemporary trend towards Italian entertainment in English theatres.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Concert | Indie Rock And Pop From Toronto And London


Broken Social Scene, the legendary experimental collective at the heart of the Toronto indie rock ecosystem that gave us Feist, Stars, and Metric among others, is “a band that once sounded like everything else and nothing else.” (Pitchfork) Founded by Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning and a cohort of like-minded musicians in 1999, they’ve pushed the envelope for two decades and evolved into post-rock royalty. They remain one of the most joyous live bands you will ever see. The London born and raised prodigy Nilüfer Yanya, still in her early 20s, is one of the most exciting and unusual artists to arrive in the pop world this decade. After three EPs, the first released while she was a teenager, she dropped her first album Miss Universe in 2019 and critics have been lining up to put it on their best-of-the-year lists. Pitchfork gave it an astonishing 8.3, noting that “the rapturous debut from the British singer-songwriter takes adventurous pop-rock crucibles to new heights with her illusory songwriting and stunning voice.” Stereogum called her voice "malleable and endlessly expressive." Paste gushed, “with an album that borders on soul, pop, jazz, and rock, Yanya is far too preoccupied with her inner demons and unique artistry to quibble over what one particular genre her music most closely resembles.”

Concert | Jeff Tweedy, Grammy-Winning Frontman for Wilco


Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy and his introspective lyrics have come to represent the simple truths of American life in all its soulful, insecure glory. A prolific songwriter, guitarist, and producer, Tweedy has enjoyed a storied career that earned him a Grammy for Wilco’s A Ghost Is Born. The poetic rocker—deemed “equal parts Walt Whitman and Richard Brautigan” by Spin—is now stepping into the solo spotlight after embarking on an exceptionally creative year. He released Warmer, the companion LP to his acclaimed 2018 solo album, this April to rave reviews, and published an illuminating best-selling memoir Let's Go (So We Can Get Back) in late 2018. Opening the evening is jazz-based cellist, singer, composer, and improviser Helen Gillet who fabricates each song with a true mastery of live looping technology. From avant-garde jazz and French chansons to funk, alternative rock, and the bohemian flair of the Velvet Underground, she “plays every note on fire” (Medium.com). Simultaneously enigmatic and virtuosic, profound yet lighthearted, Gillet’s performances overflow with a sense of drama and whimsy.

Jazz | Jazz Pianist Who Has Played at the White House


Danny Mixon was first moved by the power of jazz from visiting the Apollo Theatre one night with his grandfather. Hearing the musicians that night inspired him to take up playing the piano. From then on, he started taking piano lessons and even received training from Sir Roland Hanna. This was all by the time Mixon was 13 years old. By the time he was 17 years old, he was invited to play with Sam Brown and Pattie Labelle and the Blue Bells. By age 19, he was playing with the Muse Quartet. After a long career of recording and playing, Mixon was honored by the National Jazz Museum in Harlem through a series called “Harlem Speaks” in 2004. This earned him an invitation to the White House for Black Music Month. Mixon also used to be the musical director for the Lenox Lounge and Minton’s Playhouse. Mixon is also an instructor with Jazzmobile and the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, as well as offering private lessons.

San Antonio comes to NYC at this evening of Chicano soul. The brainchild of writer-producer-musician Adrian Quesada, Look at My Soul celebrates the musical contributions of Chicano soul singers and session musicians in the 1950s and ‘60s, including Tejano trailblazers Johnny Hernandez and Ruben Ramos, who will join Quesada and the band onstage.

Lively takes on classic tunes will have you on your feet as multiple generations of unsung musical heroes celebrate the unique sound of Texas. Fresh off their coronation as Best New Band at the 2019 Austin Music Awards, Austin-based psychedelic soul band the Black Pumas open the night, with singer-songwriter Eric Burton and Quesada on guitar. Following their funky bold sound is soul veteran and Daptone artist Lee Fields.

Jazz | Poetic Jazz Trumpeter


Jacob Varmus left his hometown, San Francisco, in 1991 to go to the University of Iowa. Like many before him, he had high hopes of coming of age as a poet while cruising the vast American heartland. He saw language and experience as the tools to probe the deepest layers of the human psyche. In his first year he was admitted to the undergraduate writers' workshop where he studied with Jorie Graham. As he produced poems unremittingly and charted the labyrinthine maze of academic life as an English major, he also played trumpet devotedly, getting a good classical foundation with David Greenhoe. Although not set on a career in music he was nonetheless engrossed in the music of the great jazz trumpeters, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, to name a few. Chet Baker and Woody Shaw were also early favorites and of special import to his trumpet sound then and now.

Concert | Afropop Quartet Known for Their High-Energy Performances


The Afropop quartet Magic System has been known for high-energy performances and magical vibes since its founding in 1996 in Ivory Coast. Early hits include “Momo” from their debut album Papitou (1997) and “1er Gaou,” a remix of which, from French producer Bob Sinclar, helped break them in France and ultimately, throughout Europe—they would later crack Billboard’s European Top 100 with their 2006 LP Cessa Kié la Vérité. Their 2014 hit single ‘Magic in the Air” became a signature song of FIFA’s World Cup. They’re supported Burkinabe rapper Smarty, whose hit-making lyrics focus on African issues, Mozambican singer Selma Uamusse, a rising star whose multiple talents span several sonorities from African music to soul and gospel, and Ivory Coast’s DJ Birane.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Jazz | Jazz Sax Infused with Afro-Caribbean Roots


Born to a Trinidadian mother and a Jamaican father in the Bronx, saxophonist T.K. Blue took up music as a child and later built a career infused with his Afro-Caribbean roots. Blue started playing the trumpet in school at age 8 but later switched to drums. For a brief time, his interest shifted from music to sports, but when he entered high school, he rededicated himself to music and started playing the flute. Blue has worked in a wide range of settings. For three years he toured with Abdullah Ibrahim and subsequently moved to Paris. While living in Paris, his career only grew stronger. He recorded and released his first CD, Egyptian Oasis, in 1986. He had the opportunity to tour in and travel to 25 countries in Africa. Eventually, Blue moved back to New York in the 1990s and has stayed there ever since. Upon his arrival back in the States, Blue recorded his second album Taja. His latest album was released in 2017 and was called Amour.

Turning the Tables—the ongoing partnership between NPR Music that seeks to reframe the popular music canon to honor unacknowledged voices—returns. This year, they explore the work of female artists who originated and shaped recorded music from its earliest days to the 1960s, in jazz, blues, gospel, classical, and Latinx music.

Selecting from the rich songbooks of these artists will be an outstanding group of contemporary performers, including Rhiannon Giddens, Xiomara Laugart, Ledisi, Amina Claudine Myers, Cleo Reed, Valerie Simpson, Charenée Wade, and Lizz Wright, under the musical direction of multiple Grammy Award–winner and two-time Turning the Tables honoree Terri Lyne Carrington.

Concert | Powerful Vocals of a Texan Soul Singer


Gospel, blues, funk, and soul are transformed by the powerful vocals of this Texan singer who has been compared to Aretha Franklin and Bonnie Raitt. Ruthie Foster grew up in a small town, singing at her community church and immersing herself in gospel, blues, country, and pop. When she was offered a major record deal as a pop star, Foster rejected the offer, preferring instead to pursue her career as a singer-songwriter. Today, she boasts three Grammy nominations and has sung with artists including Bonnie Raitt and the Allman Brothers. Whether sharing original compositions or remaking classics in her own beautiful, boisterous style, Foster’s big voice and triumphant spirit shine through.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Jazz | Captivatingly Unique Jazz Vocalist


Just shy of her teens, Brianna Thomas’s talents were discovered by distinguished jazz educator Mary Jo Papich. Soon after, Brianna toured Europe with the Peoria Jazz All-Stars, a big band under Papich’s direction. Brianna’s singing is deeply enriched by an understanding of the masterful voices of jazz past. Beyond a healthy serving of sass, Sarah Vaughn’s influence contributes to Brianna’s style the artistic savvy needed to communicate myriad moods and feelings as well as a keen instrumental perspective. Add to that a coyness reminiscent of Nancy Wilson, an Ella-esque skill and enthusiasm for scatting, and the stylistic breadth and vocal grandeur evocative of Dianne Reeves. Perhaps Brianna’s greatest asset is the soulfulness of her sound. Captivatingly unique, her sound moves in tones ranging from sweet invitations to assured convictions, establishing a personal and classic quality that leaves listeners swooning after her performances.

Concert | Carnegie Hall Citywide:  From Brazilian Folk Fusion to Irish Fiddle to Zydeco


A colorful celebration of music by dynamic and diverse performers. Matuto, whose name means “country boy” in Brazilian slang, has been described as “weird and wonderful...unorthodox and delightful” by JazzTimes. Hear why when this lively quartet takes Brazilian folk music and shakes it up with the flatpicking guitars and fiery fiddles of American bluegrass to create a musical experience the group likens to “Brazilian Carnival in the Appalachian Mountains.” Anchored by Clay Ross’s guitar and Rob Curto’s accordion, Matuto’s joyous explorations of folk, world, and jazz styles are invigorating. Consider every possibility for what’s exciting and daring in Irish fiddle playing and Eileen Ivers surpasses them all. This Grammy Award winner, Emmy nominee, and nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion has played with major orchestras around the globe, as well as such luminaries as Sting, The Chieftains, Patti Smith, and countless others. Called “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin” (The New York Times), she is deeply rooted in tradition while remaining dedicated to exploring new possibilities for the instrument. Zydeco—that intoxicating, accordion-driven South Louisiana blend of Cajun, Afro-Caribbean, and African American popular music—burns brightly when Nathan & The Zydeco Cha Chas perform. Nathan Williams’s accordion playing sets the boisterous tone, while his brother Dennis’s jazz-tinged guitar brings a unique flavor to the music. Bass, drums, and rubboard add extra spice to this Louisiana-styled musical gumbo for a performance that will get your feet moving, fingers snapping, and heart pounding.

Concert | Legacy Of Marvin Gaye's Album What's Going On By Well-Known Artists


What's Going On, Marvin Gaye’s 1971 classic concept album sung from the point of view of a Vietnam vet who returns home to a country torn by hatred, suffering, and injustice, has become a cultural touchstone—and its relevance today is chilling. The brilliant guitarist and bandleader Felicia Collins (The Late Show with David Letterman) gathers a host of friends including Toshi Reagon, Siedah Garrett, Kecia Lewis, and more to be announced, with an all-star band featuring Terri Lyne Carrington, Bette Sussman, Alexa Tarantino, Nicki Richards, Tabitha Fair, La Tanya Hall, Valerie Naranjo, and Deah Harriott, for a deep dive into Gaye’s legacy, as they play the record in its entirety.  After its release in 1971 What’s Going On met with immediate critical and commercial success and soon came to be regarded as a landmark recording in American popular music. Rolling Stone ranked it sixth on the magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." Music Director Felicia Collins is best known around the world as the guitarist and vocalist in the CBS Orchestra on The Late Show with David Letterman / World's Most Dangerous Band with Paul Shaffer. Prior to The Late Show, Felicia was the lead guitarist and vocalist in Al Jarreau's band and then a member of Cyndi Lauper's band. She has also led her own bands: 360 (a power trio starting with Will Lee and Anton Fig), and B!tchslapp, which went on to become Felicia Collins and the Life.

It’s been 40 years since Vincent and Patricia Chin set up VP Records in Jamaica, Queens; the success of that shop would prompt them to found VP Records, now one of the most important sources of reggae and dancehall music in the world. To celebrate, VP hosts a showcase with some of its illustrious alumni: Elephant Man, whose 2003 hit “Pon di River, Pon di Bank” and collaborations with Wyclef Jean and Busta Rhymes helped further blur the lines between dancehall and hip hop; Junior Reid, the former Black Uhuru vocalist whose 1989 classic “One Blood” has spawned countless remakes and interpolations; Estelle, the genre-bending, Grammy-winning English singer best known for her Kanye West collaboration “American Boy” and now has her own album, Lover’s Rock, with VP; and Grammy-nominated Raging Fyah, a five-piece band from Kingston, Jamaica that makes music bound to the roots rock reggae tradition.

Concert | Colombian Music By Grammy Nominated Band 


Led by founder Simón Mejía and the explosive singer and rapper Li Saumet, the Bogotá based electro cumbia superstars Bomba Estereo make “kinetic dance songs that jitter with so much electricity and energy that they sound as if they could blow up your speakers” (Washington Post). Bomba Estéreo has its origins in 2001, when Mejía was part of a loose collective of musicians and visual artists called A.M. 770, which was influenced by Colombian groups like Sidestepper and Bloque de Busqueda, who had started combining the traditional Colombian sounds of salsa and cumbia with electronic beats and dance music. The band had a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Rock Urban or Alternative Album for their album Amanecer (2016).  Fiery local Colombian expat outfit Delsonido gets the party started right. Founded in 2014 in Brooklyn, NY, Delsonido came together when two of its founding members Elkin Pautt and Ivan Garizabalo, Colombians hailing from Barranquilla, wanted an outlet for blending their Caribbean influences with the sounds they were encountering in the vibrant NYC music scene.

Concert | Grammy Award-Winning New Queen of Country Soul


Fresh off a world tour, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Patty Griffin graces the stage. The quintessential Americana artist lends her seasoned wisdom to a new eponymous LP--whose lead track "River" was inspired by Leon Russell's "A Song for You," made famous by R&B singer Donny Hathaway. With her melancholy poise and pendulous jazz phrasing, she proves she is still one of folk music's most genre-expanding artists. Opening the evening is arresting British singer Yola, whose thrilling debut album Walk Through Fire (produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach) has established her as the new queen of country soul.

Concert | Grammy-Winning Mexican Singer


The daughter of an American professor father and Mixtec singer mother, the Oaxaca-born singer-songwriter and actress Lila Downs has long been a champion of Mexico’s indigenous populations; For evidence, look no further than the video for her duet with Juanes “La Patria Modina,” which highlights the real-world after effects of NAFTA and the US-Mexico drug war on indigenous Mexicans. While her early work was often jazzy, she quickly evolved into a folkloric style, and eventually would dabble in ranchera, bolero, blues, and soul, singing in indigenous languages such as Mixtec, Zapotec, Mayan, Nahuatl and Purépecha on her way to winning a Grammy (Pecados y Milagros, 2010) and three Latin Grammy awards. She’s joined by indigenous Colombian-Canadian musician, singer, and songwriter Lido Pimienta, who pairs traditional indigenous and afro-Colombian rhythms with next-gen synthesizers and electronic compositions—she won the 2017 Polaris Music Prize for her LP La Papessa. With DJ Ripley, a Brooklyn/Philly-based border-busting DJ that celebrates people’s stories across race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality with global street bass sounds.

Concert | David Crosby: Fearless Folk Rock Legend


Closing out this year’s festival is fearless folk rock legend David Crosby. In his unparalleled six-decade career, the native Californian has created songs that resonate as indelible cultural touchstones for more than three generations, not only as a solo artist but as a founding member of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Amid a nationwide tour, the two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and his Sky Trails band pay a visit to share the music of a stunning creative renaissance. Opening the evening is singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell, whose folk opera Hadestown—a retelling of the Orpheus tale set in the Depression era—opened on Broadway this April to critical acclaim (and 14 Tony nominations). Whether she is on a dark exploration of American manhood or mining old English and Scottish ballads, the charismatic performer has built a vast and personal mythology.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

The son of Byron Lye-Fook, a studio musician and drummer who worked with the likes of Bob Marley and the Rolling Stones, Omar was classically trained at London’s Guildhall School of Music, and plays the trumpet, piano and percussion. Considered by some to be the ‘father’ of British neo soul, his throwback sound appeared to be ahead of its time, proving to be more influential in the canon than on the charts—he counts India.Arie, Erykah Badu, and his idol, Stevie Wonder among his fans.

Jazz | Trombonist Has Performed with a Who's Who of Important Jazz Figures


When Craig Harris exploded onto the jazz scene in 1976, he brought the entire history of the jazz trombone with him. From the growling gutbucket intensity of early New Orleans music through the refined, articulate improvisation of the modern era set forth by J.J. Johnson, and into the confrontational expressionism of the ’60s avant-garde, Harris handled the total vernacular the way a skilled orator utilizes the spoken word. He has performed with a veritable Who’s Who of progressive jazz’ most important figures – including Sun Ra, Cecil Taylor, Sam Rivers, Abdullah Ibrahim, Jaki Byard, Muhal Richard Abrams, David Murray, Henry Threadgill, Lester Bowie, The WORLD Saxophone Quartet, The Roots, RAKIM and the list goes on and on – his own projects displayed both a unique sense of concept and a total command of the sweeping expanse of musical expression.

Concert | Bob Marley & The Wailers's Classic Hits


Though the Wailers were first formed as a ska vocal group in 1963, they’re best known as the backing band of reggae legend Bob Marley. And it was that iteration that Julian Junior Marvin was asked to join in 1974 after the departure of founding members Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. His first recording with Bob Marley and the Wailers, Exodus, is widely considered one of the greatest albums of all time—in any genre. Since Marley’s death in 1981, Marvin has cut four records with the group, and toured with various iterations of the band’s lineup. Marvin fronts this current lineup, playing and singing the Bob Marley & The Wailers hits the way he believes Marley intended them to be heard. He’s joined by DJ Queen Majesty, an NYC reggae selector with her own hot sauce empire.

Born of a series of benefit concerts she put together in Southern California in 2017 called Solidarity for Sanctuary, Muñoz’s dance parties raise funds to help immigrants navigate the bureaucratic minefield that is U.S. immigration policy to set them on the path to citizenship. This year’s party is headlined by Kali Uchis, a Colombian-American singer with a critically acclaimed debut LP (2018’s Isolation) and collaborations with Gorillaz, Juanes and Daniel Caesar. She’s supported by Cuco, an ascendant Chicano bedroom pop star who is set to drop his debut album with Interscope after a prolonged bidding war; Ambar Lucid, an 18-year-old Dominican and Mexican-American singer-songwriter from New Jersey who writes bilingual tunes and wield finger-picked guitars and spaced out electronics with equal aplomb; Principe Q, a DJ and producer who spins R&B, hip-hop, dancehall, kuduro, and dembow; and the Santuario House Band, led by music director Adrian Quesada.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Jazz | A Tribute to the Legendary Drummer Art Blakey


Carl Allen’s jazz bonafides are indisputable—as a young drummer out of William Paterson University he earned a spot in Freddie Hubbard’s band, and would go on to play with the saxophonists George Coleman and Phil Woods (among others), and serve as the Artistic Director of Jazz Studies at the Juilliard School. The quintet he brings—featuring Jeremy Pelt, JD Allen, Eric Reed, and Peter Washington—pays tribute to one of his heroes, the legendary drummer Art Blakey. Allen is joined by NEA Jazz Master and one of the most respected musicians out of the hard-bop era George Coleman and his trio, the multiple Grammy Award nominee pianist Fred Hersch, who has been proclaimed as “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz” by Vanity Fair, and the saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin, who has played with the likes of Missy Elliot, Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Macy Gray, the Roots, and Anita Baker.

Concert | One of the Biggest Voices in Salsa


Linda Viera Caballero quickly made a name for herself as La India, one of the biggest voices in salsa. But before Celia Cruz would dub her the “Princess of Salsa,” she got her start in the South Bronx, where she was a founding member of the Latin Freestyle group TKA, and cut a solo record with Freestyle legends John “Jellybean” Benitez and her husband “Little” Louie Vega. After “Llegó La India via Eddie Palmieri,” she blossomed into salsa royalty and never looked back, going on to work with Cruz and Tito Puente, and winning Best Salsa Album Latin Grammy for her album Intensamente India Con Canciones De Juan Gabriel. She will be joined by Cuban funk dance artist Cimafunk named by Billboard as one of “10 Latin Artists to watch in 2019.”
