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

Enjoy free concerts (classical, jazz, pop, rock, opera) in New York City and get free tickets to the concerts which are not free for general public, but are free for Club Free Time members!

Many people think that free concerts take place in NYC only during Summer, but nothing can be further from the truth: free concerts take place in NYC year round. Here are the numbers to support the previous statement: 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.

Now a little bit about the concerts that are not free for general public, but free to Club Free Time 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! They can get free tickets reserved at www.clubfreetime.com. All they need to do is to login to www.clubfreetime.com.

Opera |


New York Opera Forum presents a concert version of Lucia di Lammermoor (1835) by Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848).  Lucia di Lammermoor is a dramma tragico (tragic opera) in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti. The Italian-language libretto by Salvadore Cammarano loosely based upon Sir Walter Scott's historical novel The Bride of Lammermoor. The story concerns the emotionally fragile Lucy Ashton who is caught in a feud between her own family and that of the Ravenswoods. The setting is the Lammermuir Hills of Scotland in the 17th century. Gaetano Donizetti was a leading composer of the "bel canto" (English: beautiful singing) opera style during the first half of the nineteenth century. Donizetti's close association with the bel canto style was an influence on other composers such as Giuseppe Verdi.

Since his early days with the multiplatinum group Tony! Toni! Toné! and throughout his three-decade career collaborating with artists like Solange, D’Angelo, and The Roots, Grammy-winning musician, songwriter, and producer Raphael Saadiq has kept the flames of old-school R&B burning brightly.

Legendary music producer Hal Willner brings together an eclectic array of musicians for an imaginative musical tribute to Italian composer Nino Rota, who wrote more than 150 scores for Italian and international productions, and who is best known for his iconic scores to Federico Fellini’s films including La Dolce Vita, 8½, and Juliet of the Spirits. His association with Fellini began with Lo sceicco bianco (The White Sheik) (1952), followed by I vitelloni (1953) and La strada (The Road) (1954). They continued to work together for decades The night opens with music from two other famous Rota scores—the first two Godfather movies—before digging into the Fellini music, Nino Rota wrote more than 150 scores for Italian and international productions from the 1930s until his death in 1979—an average of three scores each year over a 46-year period, and in his most productive period from the late 1940s to the mid-1950s he wrote as many as ten scores every year, and sometimes more, with a remarkable thirteen film scores to his credit in 1954. Alongside this great body of film work, he composed ten operas, five ballets and dozens of other orchestral, choral and chamber works, the best known being his string concerto. He also composed the music for many theatre productions by Visconti, Zeffirelli and Eduardo De Filippo[2] as well as maintaining a long teaching career at the Liceo Musicale in Bari, Italy, where he was the director for almost 30 years.

International Contemporary Ensemble presents Michael Pisaro's (b.1961) A wave and waves (2007). About the Piece Echoing the environmental themes and communal experience of John Luther Adams's In the Name of the Earth, Michael Pisaro’s 75-minute piece embeds audience members in a grid of 100 performers, where they are slowly submerged in an ocean of sound. Isolated, imperceptibly soft noises—sandpaper on stone, seeds falling on glass, bowed bells—are layered into powerful waves of sound adding to the immersive nature of the experience. A work of monumental scale, presented with uncommon immediacy, A wave and waves melds microscopic moments of friction, gravity, and vibration into a single, pulsing organism. “Quietly epic...mammoth in scale, and microscopic in detail... an iridescent aural landscape, not to mention a truly magical, and deeply meditative, listening experience...the ultimate practice in mindfulness” – Limelight Magazine, Australia “Enthralling and mesmerizing.”– All About Jazz on Michael Pisaro’s music The International Contemporary Ensemble serves as artists-in-residence at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Mostly Mozart Festival, and previously led a five-year residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Other performance stages have included the Park Avenue Armory, The Stone, ice floes at Greenland’s Diskotek Sessions, and boats on the Amazon River.

Honor the late Council Member Stan Michels at the tenth annual Memorial Jazz Concert. Enjoy live jazz by local impresario Marjorie Eliot and her ensemble underneath the majestic elms on the promenade, alongside the beautiful garden and overlooking the Hudson River. Stan Michels represented Northern Manhattan in the City Council for 24 years from 1978 through 2001. He was chair of the Committee on Environmental Protection, and his legislative record was notable for his work fighting on behalf of tenants for the expansion of the city’s recycling program, for the protection of our water supply and cleaner air, and against childhood lead poisoning, smoking in public places, and unreasonable noise. He was also a steadfast advocate for parks, allocating over $50 million for park improvements in Washington Heights, Inwood, and Harlem, including virtually every playground in his district.

From the beatnik riots to the summer of love, NYC’s Greenwich Village was the epicenter of a revolutionary movement in the history of American music. A new wave of writers and performers, inspired by the folk revival of the late fifties, created introspective, socially-aware, deeply personal songs that deserve to be considered as a key part of the American Songbook alongside the pop songs being written uptown. These writers – Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Janis Ian, Fred Neil and Phil Ochs, to name just a few – changed the “folk” repertoire from traditional songs to songs sprung from personal, contemporary experience, as well as from the headlines. This freewheeling concert, hosted by Richard Barone, who pays tribute to that exciting era on his recent album Sorrows and Promises, celebrates the lasting legacy of that pivotal decade along with an eclectic roster of artists from then and now performing songs that still resonate today. FEATURED PERFORMERS: Richard Barone (host/MC) Jesse Colin Young (of The Youngbloods) Melanie José Feliciano Maria Muldaur Jenni Muldaur Marshall Crenshaw Jeffrey Gaines Nellie McKay David Amram Happy Traum The Kennedys Tammy Faye Starlite Anthony DeCurtis (Rolling Stone editor) Cindy Lee Berryhill Steve Addabbo Joe McGinty Jeordie More to be announced…

He’ll be performing at the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival alongside Grammy-nominated vocalist Catherine Russell, piano wunderkind Matthew Whitaker, and trumpeter Keyon Harrold, who was dubbed “the future of the trumpet” by Wynton Marsalis.

Called “the queen of western Sahara desert blues” (The Culture Trip), Brahim’s music is “a potent mix of desert rock, Malian griot music and pop songs spanning the ’70s to now, and plenty of body moving Afro-Cuban rhythms" (Noisey).

New York Opera Forum presents a concert version of La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), accompanied by piano.   La Bohème is an opera in four acts, composed by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, based on Scènes de la vie de bohème by Henri Murger. The world premiere of La Bohème was in Turin on 1 February 1896 at the Teatro Regio, conducted by the 28-year-old Arturo Toscanini; its U.S. premiere took place the following year, 1897, in Los Angeles.
