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

235 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.

Enjoy performances from local and international talent. World-renowned kora player Yacouba Sissoko and his band SIYA take us on a musical journey sharing West African songs and stories that have been passed down from generation to generation at Pier 6 Plaza.

The songs sung by djelys were stories that had been passed down from generation to generation, and  captured the oral history of the people and culture of West Africa describing social life, cultural identify and  family backgrounds.

Opera | The Ritual of Breath: A Transdisciplinary Opera


The Ritual of Breath is a transdisciplinary opera and creative act of resistance. Born from the vibrant collaboration between composer Jonathan Berger, visual artist Enrico Riley and poet/librettist Vievee Francis, the work responds to the murder of Eric Garner and the ongoing theft of Black life at the hands of the State. Music, text, projected visuals and movement interweave in a story centered on Garner’s daughter, Erica. Uplifted by a 75-person choir of singers, the project gathers us together as co-conspirers—to breathe and keep breathing any way we can. The work is directed by Niegel Smith, the pioneering theater artist and artistic director of The Flea; conducted by American Prize-winning Kamna Gupta; with choreography by founder of Urban Bush Women Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. The Ritual of Breath is grounded in work by the creative team with activist Dr. Shamell Bell and a group of mothers who have lost their children to state-sanctioned violence, including Gwen Carr, Eric Garner’s mother.

Concert | Voices of Pakistan, India and Tunisia


This star-studded triple bill features the first-ever Pakistani Grammy winner, an Indian film music superstar and Tunisia’s voice of the Arab Spring. Like many children of the diaspora, Arooj Aftab straddles the old world and the new, studied and trained in modern sounds but carrying the spirit and tradition of her ancestral home in her bones. The first-ever Pakistani artist to win a GRAMMY broke out with her 2021 album Vulture Prince, a stunning collection of minimal compositions drawing from jazz, folk, Hindustani classical, and Urdu ghazals. She’s since found kindred spirits in Vijay Iyer and Shahzas Ismaily, whose unplanned, improvised performance revealed a natural chemistry that coalesced on their collaborative LP Love in Exile. Sid Sriram is an Indian Carnatic musician, producer, and star of Indian film music, whose latest LP Sidharth is a collaborative effort with Def Jam producer Ryan Olson and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon that explores intersections of Carnatic music with his R&B and indie rock influences. The third headliner is EMEL (Emel Mathlouthi), the Tunisian/American, New York City-based artist, producer, and activist whose protest song “Kelmti Horra” (“My Word is Free”) became an anthem for the Tunisian Revolution and the Arab Spring. Her newest 100% woman-made album MRA (meaning ‘woman’ in Arabic) is a multi-genre and multilingual meld where African trap, batucada, Arabic reggaeton, hip hop, and drum n’ bass rub shoulders seamlessly with vibrant melodies and empowering lyrics that seek to amplify and strengthen the voices of women worldwide.

Concert | Delicate DIY Folk Band


Shallow Alcove's delicate, DIY folk music take on the lullaby of bedroom pop is a thoughtful exploration of early nostalgia for yesterday's loves and heartbreaks. What started as friends writing songs in the bedrooms and basements of upstate New York has traveled to the urban hustle of New York City and Philadelphia, but the band’s roots remain the same: storytelling with the people they love. Founded and fronted by lead singer Grace Krichbaum and lead guitarist Dan Harris, Shallow Alcove has since expanded to include members Peter Groppe (guitar), Jack Harrington (bass, keyboard), and Noah Dadaris (percussion). They combine stacked vocal harmonies, catchy riffs, and diary-like lyricism to share a disarmingly honest, refreshingly tender soundtrack to the ephemerality of young adulthood. These are dynamic and sweetly melodic narratives that anyone can relate to, mapping the intricacies of changing relationships, the turning of the seasons, bad haircuts, and the ache of growing up.

Concert | One of the Most Important Dominican Musicians


Over 70 years of creating and performing, Manuela Josefa Cabrera Taveras, better known as Fefita La Grande, has established herself as one of the most important figures in Dominican music. As a pioneer of the art of merengue típico, the rustic variation of merengue unique to the Dominican Republic, she is a rare female champion of the accordion, paving the way for countless other women in an otherwise male-dominated profession. Fefita has also earned considerable renown as a celebrated vocalist and phenomenally popular composer and lyricist, whose rendition of the traditional folk song "La Chiflera" is considered emblematic of típico's appeal. Her ability to reinvent her sound has kept Fefita's work freshly appreciated across generations, as proven by recent collaborations with stars like Milly Quezada and Krisspy. Fefita's Lincoln Center premiere on the big stage offers audiences an opportunity to witness the Queen of Merengue Típico at her creative height.

Concert | Catalan Sounds on Tour


A vibrant showcase of the music of Catalonia. Sidonie, a Barcelona-based psych-pop trio, is known for songs that seamlessly blend Hindu music, surrealism, and rock. After more than 25 years together, their latest LP, Marc, Axel and Jes, strips their sound to its roots, packed with bracing two-and-a-half-minute jams that capture the healing power of a great rock record. The Balkan Paradise Orchestra, an all-female ensemble comprising wind and percussion players, takes the spirit of the Balkans and infuses it with various rhythms and worldwide traditions. Their new album, Nectar, explores the world of bees, riffing on themes of travel, teamwork, and personal and collective effort. The self-taught composer and multi-instrumentalist Lau Noah has been breaking hearts and turning heads with her voice and guitar in New York City since 2014, but broke out in 2019 with her debut on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series—the first Catalan artist to do so. The event is a unique opportunity to experience the rich and diverse Catalan music scene in New York.

Everywhere We Are is the Farthest Place, an iterative soundscape composition, combines an electroacoustic performance with field recordings of glacial geologic activity and oceanographic data Mary Edwards gathered while on an art and science sailing expedition on a research vessel above the 78th parallel in Svalbard. This ode rather than an elegy to the transforming Arctic based on eyewitness accounts of natural events—iceberg torrents, calving glaciers, whale song and converging subterranean rivers—is sonically recreated as a score with intention of “decentralizing the centered and un-othering the others.”

Josiah Wise’s music as serpentwithfeet has long explored romantic moments, weaving abstract tones and melodies with a tender sweetness.

Concert | Ghanaian Music Legend in NYC Debut - in the Park


For the first time in America, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley and an eight-piece band will perform his 1975 debut album, Simigwa, in its entirety! Gyedu-Blay Ambolley is a musical luminary hailing from Ghana, West Africa, with a staggering 29 albums under his belt. Known affectionately as the "Simigwa Do Man,” Ambolley’s musical journey began in the vibrant port city of Sekondi-Takoradi, in the Western Region of Ghana. His early fascination with music blossomed into a lifelong passion. From mastering his father’s flute at the tender age of eight to honing his guitar skills under the mentorship of “Uncle Bonku,” Sammy Lartey, and Ebo Taylor, Ambolley’s musical odyssey has been nothing short of extraordinary. This all led to Ambolley becoming a musical life force and exploding on the scene in 1973 with a jazzy highlife sound called “Simigwa-Do.” His name has become synonymous with Simigwa music and dance. Gyedu-Blay Ambolley’s groundbreaking debut solo album, Simigwa, stands as a cornerstone of Ghanaian music history (and one of its most iconic album covers). Simigwa stands as Ambolley’s magnum opus, a masterpiece fusing together the rich tapestry of highlife, afrobeat, folk and funk. Also, Natu Camara is a powerhouse hailing from the vibrant heart of West Africa. As a dynamic singer, songwriter, and humanitarian, she blends Guinean traditional sounds with pop, soul, and rock, creating an Afro-rock experience that knows no borders. Natu's mesmerizing performances tackle global issues, from love to child marriage, loneliness, unity, and pressing concerns, touching hearts worldwide. Beyond her musical talent, she embodies, resilience, and hope, connecting spirits in a way that feels almost spiritual. Her unwavering commitment to social justice adds an inspiring dimension to her artistry, making her a true luminary in the world of music.

Jazz | Charlie Parker Jazz Festival in the Park


The Grammy-winning Christian McBride Big Band brings the celebrated bassist and bandleader’s take on the sprawling ensembles that dominated jazz in the early 1940s at the height of swing. McBride explores several extensions of his creative inspiration through various ensembles; this 17-piece iteration helped define a new big band sound that fuses traditional long-form compositions with more modern post-bop sound. Their latest, 2020’s For Jimmy, Wes, and Oliver, saw McBride and organist Joey DeFrancesco explore their shared love for the Jimmy Smith/Wes Montgomery collaborations of the late ’60s. This concert will feature pieces from that album as well as others from the Christian McBride Big Band. They’re joined by Wallace Roney Jr, a trumpeter who’s shared the stage with the likes of Chick Corea, Ornette Coleman, and Jimmy Heath, and carries the pedigree of his Grammy-winning father Wallace Roney (a mentee of Miles Davis).

New York City Opera will present a full production of Puccini's perennial favorite. Tosca is a three-act opera that takes the audience back in time to Rome during the 1800's, just after the French Revolution. Napoleon has successfully taken France and has invaded Rome and created a new republic. The beloved opera singer, Floria Tosca, is in love with painter Mario Cavaradossi and here begins the story of how Chief of Police Baron Scarpia intersects with these lovers in drama, betrayal, revenge and murder. The fully staged production features the New York City Opera Orchestra and Chorus, and led by Maestro Joseph Rescigno.

Jazz | Charlie Parker Jazz Festival in the Park


Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist, composer, lyricist, arranger, and pianist Carmen Lundy has been turning heads with her voice for the better part of four decades; Her latest album Fade to Black features 11 original songs reflecting on loss, sorrow, healing, and her hope for a brighter future despite the invasive culture of modern technology. Helen Sung got her start studying classical piano, but a solo performance by Harry Connick, Jr. in her twenties moved her to shift into jazz. A skilled improviser with post-bop leanings, Sung studied under Ron Carter, Clark Terry, Jackie McLean, Sir Roland Hanna, Jimmy Heath, Wynton Marsalis, Barry Harris, and Jon Faddis, among others, and toured India and Thailand with Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. She released her 8th LP Quartet+ in 2021. A force in the Chicago jazz scene, the young virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist Isaiah Collier experiments and explores new sounds on stage with his band The Chosen Few, making music that sounds destined for celestial realms, unhindered by terrestrial bounds. Rounding out the bill is vocal phenom Tyreek McDole, whose velvet-toned voice has continued to bring him accolades, most recently first prize at the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition. Multi-talented DJ and host of WBGO’s podcast Milestones DJ KulturedChild aka Angelika Beener is on the ones and twos.

Jazz | Charlie Parker Jazz Festival in the Park


The newly minted (2023) Jazz Master Louis Hayes is joined by some of the more impressive talents in modern jazz. Hayes, a one-time member of McCoy Tyner’s trio, has been leading bands since he was a teenager in 1950s Detroit, recorded with John Coltrane and Yusef Lateer, and did stints in quartets with Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley, as well as time with the Oscar Peterson Trio. He’s supported by the 24-year-old Cameroonian-American jazz vocalist Ekep Nkwelle, a Juilliard grad and rising star of Jazz at Lincoln Center; and Alexis Lombre, the Chicago-born pianist, vocalist, and composer whose 2017 debut Southside Sounds pays homage to her home’s artistic and cultural heritage. The bill also features a performance from SuperBlue, the genre bending collaboration between Kurt Elling—one of jazz’s preeminent male vocalists—and Charlie Hunter, the guitar virtuoso who plays a custom hybrid guitar that allows him to play bass lines, chords, and melodies simultaneously. They’re supported by the high-energy,  Brooklyn-based  Huntertones Horns. Multi-talented DJ and host of WBGO’s podcast Milestones DJ KulturedChild aka Angelika Beener is on the ones and twos.

Concert | 3 Pop Rockers in Park Concert


Snail Mail’s Lindsey Jordan is a songwriter mature beyond her 24 years, pairing a bleeding heart with a penchant for pop hooks. She has a knack for turning bedroom confessionals into singalong screamers, from her earliest hits like “Thinning” to her breakout LP Lush. Her latest LP Valentine displays what she’s capable of when backed by big-budget production values and a bevy of new experiences touring the world as the heir apparent to irreverent rock goddess Liz Phair. Co-headliner of the event is multi-hyphenate Tim Heidecker (of Tim & Eric fame), who, in addition to his comedy, acting, writing, directing, and hosting gigs, has put out six albums of tender and expertly crafted guitar music, balancing gentle melodies with his signature caustic wit. HIs latest LP High School is a concept album that explores truths about adulthood through the lens of his adolescence. In 2023, Brooklyn-based artist Fenne Lily released the gentle and gorgeous LP Big Picture, an achingly introspective exercise in seeking clarity in the uncertain; comfort in the uncomfortable.
