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

137 free concerts (classical, opera, jazz, pop, rock, soul, etc.) 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."

Opera | The Art of Change: An Experimental Opera


Jean-Baptiste Barriere's The Art of Change is a bold experimental work that introduces a radically new artistic form. Starting with the traditional notion of opera as a type of work that blends music, theater, art, and design into a single form, The Art of Change brings performers and thinkers together on stage and fuses live performance with historical video footage, recorded interviews and multimedia content. All of this is woven together into a tapestry that is generative, interactive, participative, and open. As its title suggests, the work centers on the very idea of change and presents various ways of thinking, from the very pragmatic to the most speculative, about what needs to be changed in the world today. Actors, singers, instrumentalists, designers, and philosophers come together, with the audience, to speculate on this question and the many ways in which it can be answered.

Opera | Eine florentinische Tragodie: Excerpts from Zemlinsky's Opera


LOTny (The Little Opera Theater of New York) presents "Zemlinsky's Zimmer," selections from Alexander von Zemlinsky's Eine florentinische Tragodie (1917). This performance is part of Europa's Opera: Three Acts. In the late 16th century, in what could be described as a revolutionary act, a group of intellectuals, from an array of different backgrounds, gathered to conceive a musical art form that would update the supposed ancient Greek practice of comprehensibly setting words to music. This method of reciting through song (recitar cantando) expanded very quickly throughout the European continent, reaching the ears and hearts of people normally separated by country, class, language, and gender. Curated by Gina Crusco (Underworld Productions), Europa's Opera: Three Acts draws upon this rich history and presents three semi-staged productions by Philip Shneidman's The Little Opera Theater of New York, Dorian Bandy, and Judith Barnes' Vertical Player Repertory. These performances and an in-depth moderated conversation among the producers aim to demonstrate the power of art and music to transcend national borders, and to act as a binding force, uniting people in a shared experience and common cause.

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."

Concert | In the Salon of Madame Brillon: Concert and Conversation


The Raritan Players, led by Rebecca Cypess, invite listeners into the musical world of Anne-Louise Brillon de Jouy (1744-1824), a French composer and keyboardist whose reputation extended throughout Europe and across the Atlantic. Her salon was one of the most fashionable and glittering in Paris. Her salon was a destination for leading professional musicians including Luigi Boccherini, Johann Schobert, and Charles Burney. In the centuries since her death, Madame Brillon—like so many women—has been all but erased from musical history. Using her manuscripts at the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia, as well as works dedicated to her by some of Europe's leading composers, this program explores Brillon's tastes and the music that she created and inspired. For this concert and discussion, Rebecca Cypess draws on her book-in-progress about Women and Musical Salons in the Enlightenment.

Concert | Voices and Piano


Peter Ablinger and Eric Wubbels will perform selections from Peter Ablinger's ground-breaking Voices and Piano series. The highlight of the evening is the world premiere performance of the newest addition to the series, a work using the voice of American performance artist Diamanda Galás. Voices and Piano is an extensive cycle of pieces for recorded voice - usually a well-known celebrity - and piano. Begun in 1998, Ablinger's cycle continues to be a work in progress and will ultimately include about 80 pieces/voices (around four hours of music). The voices are taken from speeches, interviews or readings, and rather than an accompaniment, the piano part serves as a commentary on the spoken text. In addition to the premiere of Diamanda Galás, the program will include pieces with the voices of Agnes Martin, Mila Haugová, Ezra Pound, Nina Simone, Setsuko Hara, Hanna Schygulla, Cecil Taylor, and Roman Opalka. Peter Ablinger has been guest conductor of 'Klangforum Wien', 'United Berlin' and the 'Insel Musik Ensemble’. Since 1990 Peter Ablinger has worked as a freelance musician. 2012 he became a member of the Academy of Arts Berlin. 2012-2017 he was research professor at the University of Huddersfield. Eric Wubbels is a composer and pianist, and a Co-Director of the Wet Ink Ensemble. As a performer, he has given U.S. and world premieres of works by major figures such as Peter Ablinger, Richard Barrett, Beat Furrer, George Lewis, and Mathias Spahlinger.

Jazz | "Golden Era" Jazz by an 8-Member Czech Ensemble


In the ten years of their existence, Pilsner Jazz Band have managed to secure themselves a place on the Czech traditional jazz and swing scene. This eight-member orchestra from the city of Pilsen concentrates on the 'Golden Era' of jazz - dixieland and swing, but their eclectic repertoire also includes boogie-woogie, blues and Latin standard jazz. They receive regular invitations to both Czech and foreign festivals, but also regularly perform at regular concerts, weddings, corporate events, parties and other events. Their wide repertoire contains something for everyone - from the old dixieland pieces from the streets of New Orleans to hits from New York dance clubs by Glenn Miller or Duke Ellington, to pieces which have been underrated for decades. The female singer, accompanied by seven instrumentalists, appeals to the audience with both Czech and English language pieces.

Concert | Porgy & Bess The AstroBlack Trapfish Row Variations: A "Carmelization" of Gershwin


Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber presents the U.S. premiere of their “caramelization” of Gershwin’s melancholic masterpiece. With overt nods to Miles Davis and Gil Evans’s brassy and melodius 1966 distillation of Porgy & Bess, Burnt Sugar’s varied arrangers and conductors turn a dub wise, samba-licious, and ska-inflected ear towards the twerk-inducing cadences of latter-day Southern hip-hop and the cosmic jungle music of 1970s Miles Davis. Founded by Greg Tate and co-led with Dayton, Ohio monster bassist Jared Michael Nickerson since 1999, Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber is a sprawling band of musicians whose prodigious personnel allows them to freely juggle a wide swath of the experimental soul-jazz-hip hop spectrum.

Classical Music | Elizabethan Lute Songs and Solos On Sleep, Dreams and Awakenings


Sleep, Dreams and Awakenings explores, through the medium of Elizabethan lute songs and solos, various aspects of sleep: plaints of lovers who long to rest their “weary weeping eyes,” frolics of suitors stealing a kiss from a (possibly) sleeping lover, and blissful lullabies to soothe even the most careworn soul.  Barbara Hollinshead and Howard Bass have performed together for more than two decades, presenting programs featuring Renaissance and early baroque music from England, France, Italy, and Spain, often in thematically-linked programs. They have performed at the Italian Embassy, National Gallery of Art, and on uncountable music series.

Classical Music | Ensemble Hailed By Washington Post Explores The Myth Of Courtly Love


Sarah Pillow, soprano; John Mark Rozendaal, vielle; Tina Chancey, vielles, rebec, kamenj. In the Middle Ages, Courtly Love was many things; a poetic ideal, a civilizing influence, a spiritual discipline; a wealth of lyrics and romances produced and read by men and women sharing an elaborate feudal ritual. But how did it manifest in daily life, where love and marriage seldom converged? Hesperus explores the many aspects of Fin'amor. Early music and folk music ensemble Hesperus connects the rich musical past and curious 21st century concertgoers, not only with single-genre early music programs and early music scores for silent films, but through collaborations with theatre, mime and dance; multi-century musical portraits of a single culture; and Crossover fusions of early music and American traditional styles.

Classical Music | Handel's Cantatas


Europa’s Opera: Three Acts will showcase productions by three of New York City’s most innovative opera companies throughout spring 2020. In the late 16th century, in what could be described as a revolutionary act, a group of intellectuals, from an array of different backgrounds, gathered to conceive a musical art form that would update the supposed ancient Greek practice of comprehensibly setting words to music. This method of reciting through song (recitar cantando) expanded very quickly throughout the European continent, reaching the ears and hearts of people normally separated by country, class, language, and gender. Curated by Gina Crusco (Underworld Productions), Europa’s Opera: Three Acts draws upon this rich history and presents three semi-staged productions by Philip Shneidman’s The Little Opera Theater of New York, Dorian Bandy, and Judith Barnes’ Vertical Player Repertory. These performances and an in-depth moderated conversation among the producers aim to demonstrate the power of art and music to transcend national borders, and to act as a binding force, uniting people in a shared experience and common cause.

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."

In 1983 he received the Countess of Munster Award to study Interpretation and Improvisation with Jean Langlais in Paris, with whom he furthered in his interest in the art of improvisation by his transcriptions of the recordings of the late Pierre Cochereau. Transcribing the remarkable improvisations from Cochereau's cassette recordings took eleven years. Briggs' subsequent performances and recordings of them earned him his initial acclaim. He was also the first British organist to win the Tournemire prize for improvisation at the St Albans International Organ Festival.
