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

73 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 | The English Guittar of the 18th Century in Duet, Song, and Chamber Music (in-person and online)


The English guittar was wildly popular in Georgian England. Its popularity spread throughout the British Empire and into the United States. Its brilliant flowering was brief, however, disappearing by 1800. Rather than a proper guitar, it was a 6-string instrument strung with brass. The leading composers of Georgian England all offered music for the guittar: Geminiani, J.C. Bach, R. Straube, and James Oswald. This concert offers a survey of some of this delightful and rare chamber music: Scottish and English duets and songs and Italian arias. Performed by Mr. Jones & the Engines of Destruction: Daniel Swenberg ~ English guittar & archlute; Andrew Rutherford ~ English guittar; Leah Nelson ~ violin; Marcia Young ~ soprano In 1605 famed English architect Inigo Jones brought the newly-developed theorbo from Italy into England. At Dover, customs impounded the instrument fearing it was some engine from the popish lands brought to destroy the king. This group emphasizes fun, lascivious, nerdy, and dramatic programs and features rarely heard ensembles for lutes, theorbos, and guitars.

Classical Music | An intimate performance of works by Beethoven from an award-winning string quartet


The Pelia String Quartet performs Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet No. 15 in A Minor, Opus 132. Composed in 1825 while Beethoven was convalescing from an agonizing intestinal disease that nearly killed him, the five movements of String Quartet No. 15 in A Minor are considered to be some of Beethoven's most powerful. In an offer of thanks for surviving his close brush with death, Beethoven titled the quartet's third movement "Heiliger Dankgesang eines Genesenen an die Gottheit, in der lydischen Tonart" or "Song of Thanksgiving to the Deity from a convalescent in the Lydian mode." The "Heiliger Dankgesang" consists of slow sections interspersed with fast ones, mirroring the tenuous line between life and death, suffering and relief, illustrating by way of music the ebb and flow of painful memories in the body of a survivor. Heejeon Ahn, violin Delphine Skene, violin Sung Jin Lee, viola Nathan Cottrell, cello The Pelia String Quartet was formed through the Emerson String Quartet Institute at Stony Brook University in 2019. They participated and received a special prize in the 2021 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, a Bronze medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and were winners of the Ackerman Chamber Music Competition. The Quartet has appeared at the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, La Jolla SummerFest and Jeunesses Musicales Deutschland.

Concert | A Tribute to Pianist/Composer Robert Casadesus


Black Oak Ensemble and pianist Wenting Yu play a tribute to the life of pianist and composer Robert Casadesus. Robert Casadesus (1899-1972), the renowned French concert pianist, was also a prolific composer. Student of harmony and composition at the Paris Conservatory, Casadesus pursued composition throughout his performing career. Yet, it is an enigma that Casadesus did not promote his own compositions in public until the 1940s. Thus, his music is rarely performed today. In quality, these works stand alongside pieces by Poulenc, Prokofiev, Copland, and their contemporaries. His oeuvre provides another window to the mid-twentieth century musical time period. This outstanding pianist left not only a legacy in performance, recording, and pedagogy, but also sixty-eight original works, including seven symphonies, three concerti for solo piano, one concerto for two pianos, one concerto for three pianos, and a large body of duo sonatas and chamber music. Casadesus wrote expressively, revealing a keen understanding of the physical demands and enormous color possibilities of each instrument.

Concert | Voice of Crumb Part 1 (In Person AND Online)


The "expert and versatile musicians" (The New Yorker) of NOVUS NY celebrate George Crumb in two concerts titled Voice of Crumb. In Part 1, Crumb's works are paired with Crumb's pupil, Jennifer Higdon. Program George Crumb (1929 - 2022) Vox Balanae, Four Nocturnes Jennifer Higdon (1962 - ), Little River Songs Conor Hanick, piano Katie Hyun, violin Melissa Baker, flute George Crumb was an American composer of avant-garde contemporary classical music. Crumb's compositions are known for pushing the limits of technical prowess by way of frequent use of extended techniques. The unusual timbres he employs evoke a surrealist atmosphere which portray emotions of considerable intensity with vast and sometimes haunting soundscapes. His few large-scale works include Echoes of Time and the River (1967), which won the 1968 Pulitzer Prize for Music, and Star-Child (1977), which won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Classical Composition; however, his output consists of mostly music for chamber ensembles or solo instrumentalists. Jennifer Higdon is an American composer of contemporary classical music. She has received many awards, including the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Music for her Violin Concerto and three Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Classical Composition for her Percussion Concerto in 2010, Viola Concerto in 2018, and Harp Concerto in 2020. Elected a Member of the American Philosophical Society in 2019, she was a professor of composition at the Curtis Institute of Music from 1994 to 2021

He toured Europe and played at Carnegie Hall during his freshman year. In his junior year, he traveled to Tanzania to study East African marimba music.

Concert | The Amazon Concert: Sights and Sounds of Brazil


The leaders of the renowned Brazilian orchestra discuss the ensemble's latest multimedia project.  Founded in 1954, the Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo (OSESP) is the leading orchestra in Latin America. Thierry Fischer has been principal conductor and music director since 2020, succeeding Marin Alsop, who held the position from 2012–2019. The orchestra performed at major European festivals, and in 2019 toured China and Hong Kong. In the same year, it launched Carnegie Hall’s All Together: A Global Ode to Joy project, performing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with a new Portuguese translation of the Ode to Joy. In 2018, its recording of the symphonies of Villa-Lobos on NAXOS, conducted by Isaac Karabtchevsky, won Concerto magazine’s Grand Prize and the Prêmio da Música Brasileira. The OSESP and Marin Alsop will present The Amazon Concert – Sights and Sounds of Brazil, an immersive work that includes music by Villa-Lobos, Clarice Assad, Tom Jobim, Philip Glass, and others, as images of the Brazilian tropical forest as seen through the eyes of its myriad species flash above the stage. This conversation between conductor Marin Alsop, interdisciplinary creator Marcello Dantas, OSESP's Artistic Director Arthur Nestrovski, and Fundação OSESP President Marcelo Lopes, will explore the artistic work—both musical and visual—involved in the groundbreaking multimedia project.

Classical Music | Baroque Music by Renowned Flautist who Played for The French Royals (in-person and online)


The Opus Project: Joanna Marsden, flute; Christophe Gauthier, harpsichord The 18th century theater historian Claude Parfaict described Michel de la Barre (c. 1675-1745) as the finest flute player of his age, known for his deeply expressive playing. De la Barre's Premier livre de pieces pour la flute traversiere avec la basse-continue (Paris, 1702) contains the earliest published works for the Baroque flute and was considered revolutionary in its context. He played at the courts of Louis XIV and Louis XV. The Opus Project is a chamber music initiative formed in 2020 by Christophe Gauthier and Joanna Marsden in Montreal. Inspired by the beauty of early musical prints and manuscript sources, the Opus Project explores unsung treasures of the Baroque chamber music repertoire by focusing deeply on one collection at a time.

Concert | Book of Ruth: A Memoir Through Music with Met Opera Chrus Artists (online)


In this special concert livestream, learn about Holocaust survivor Ruth Wachner Pagirsky. Alongside beautiful music, Ruth’s daughter and Museum Trustee Regina Skyer will share how her mother met hatred with humanity in an incredible story of courage, resilience, and hope. Born in Berlin, Germany, in 1926, Ruth was only 13 years old when the war started in 1939. Fleeing first to the Polish forests, and then a labor camp, Ruth eventually obtained false identification papers that allowed her to hide in the open as a Polish Catholic. For three years, Ruth posed as a mute, hiding her German accented Polish – and her Jewish identity – until she was liberated in 1945. From Partisans Song to Fiddler on the Roof to Madame Butterfly and more, Met Opera Chorus Artists will bring Ruth’s incredible story – and love for music – to the museum.

Nicholas Phan, tenor, accompanied by music from Copland House Music by Lembit Beecher, Missy Mazzoli, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Florence Price, Ke-Chia Chen, Jake Heggie, and Pierre Jalbert Migration tales of voyages with often unpredictable outcomes: ancestors fleeing war-torn Europe, exiles seeking new homes, people becoming strangers in their own lands ... even music, itself, traveling on metaphorical journeys, "like a falling seed carried far from its home by the westward wind, looking for a place to land and take root." Copland House is dedicated to nurturing and renewing America's musical heritage, and to fostering greater public awareness and appreciation of our nation's composers and their work. Building upon Aaron Copland's seminal artistic and personal legacies, Copland House furthers this mission through composer residencies; live, broadcast, and recorded performances; and educational and community outreach programs.
