New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Rockefeller Center is one of the most popular public spaces and tourist attractions in New York City. This depression-era commercial complex takes up over three full city blocks and is rich with history, public art, and art-deco architecture. Built by business mogul John D. Rockefeller Jr. with his own money, he instructed his team of designers and architects to build the most beautiful commercial complex of it’s kind in the world. That vision resulted in what is still one of NYC’s greatest treasures and gave rise to some of NYC’s favorite traditions including the Radio City Christmas Spectacular featuring the famous dance team the Rockettes and the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.

When people think about holiday decorations in New York City, they usually think of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and the lavish store window displays. But some of the best sights to be seen are actually in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Starting in the 1980’s, Christmas started getting bigger and brighter out in Brooklyn with each passing year. Expect to see massive, professionally- done light displays (some costing upwards of $20,000!). There is an unspoken competition among the home owners in the neighborhood, so some have added huge lawn ornaments and motorized displays, making for a lavish holiday spectacle. Dyker Heights has truly become a “must-see” for many people during the holidays.

The Art Mob, an uncommon a cappella chorus, wows audiences with an oddball mix of offbeat, witty, and occasionally heartrending music from bygone days.  Now in its 37th year, the 15-member Mob specializes in Victorian parlor songs, Sacred Harp hymns, 1920s radio gospel, scary old children’s ditties, Tin Pan Alley numbers, English folk tunes, temperance anthems, jazz and doo-wop. The Fall 2017 concert delves into three of our favorite topics: drinking (or not); thinking (or not); and catchin’ fish (or not). Watch them weave these motifs into a coherent (or not) evening of harmony and fun. They open in ragtime and close in a rhumba. The performance concludes with a sing-along of favorite holiday carols. The Art Mob is: Brent Frederick (music director), Connie Beckley, Hannah Campbell, Gaynor Coté, Martin Donach, Frank Donno, Richard Haas, Lauren Hsu, Amanda Keating, Anne Kostick, Paul Martin Kovic, Emilia Mahaffey, Jaye Maynard, Dean Rainey, and Kirsten Skrinde.

Although world famous, Harlem may be New York's best kept secret with some of the city's best architecture, food, music and people. Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Whether you are a seasoned professional, a proud shower singer, or someone who has never opened their mouth to sing, Inside Voice allows singers and non-singers alike to uncover the power and beauty of their full 5-octave range while developing a deep, emotive connection to their own unique sound. Through exercises and group songs that are as silly as they are revelatory, "Sing a Secret," the introduction to Inside Voice, shows that the only limits on our voices are the ones we impose on them and that to work on the voice is to work on the self. You’ll learn to harness powerful, heartbreaking, visceral, fragile, and otherworldly sounds you never dreamed were inside you all the while dramatically extending your range, building your confidence, and strengthening the emotional links between you and your voice.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Poetry Reading |
Ragged Sky Press presents the launch of Go Deep, a book of poetry and pastels, with a reading and musical performance. POETS: Newly diagnosed with multiple myeloma, Steve Nolan called every person in the country rumored to have the same form of cancer. He was misinformed about NJ DeVico’s leukemia; she had myelodysplastic syndrome. The initial phone call revealed his love of poetry and her love of art. A collaboration—and friendship—was born. Nolan has been writing poetry for 40 years, has spent time in Afghanistan, and as a social worker in the US Army and Air Force. DeVico fell in love with Crayola crayons 56 years ago, but has since moved up to oil pastels. MUSICIANS: Marion Beckenstein (vocal, autoharp, keyboard) has sung extensively with Steve Reich and Musicians, the Philip Glass Ensemble, Music Before 1800 and the Long Island Baroque Ensemble, among others.  She has been described by The New York Times as "pure and unflinching" - that is, her voice has.  Bryan Brown (vocal, guitar, keyboard) plays in the post-Nuggetist Shanghai Love Motel of New York City as well as sundry other pre-, post-, and non-Nuggetist ensembles.  He has been described as "flinching, but subtle about it."

When people think about holiday decorations in New York City, they usually think of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and the lavish store window displays. But some of the best sights to be seen are actually in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Starting in the 1980’s, Christmas started getting bigger and brighter out in Brooklyn with each passing year. Expect to see massive, professionally- done light displays (some costing upwards of $20,000!). There is an unspoken competition among the home owners in the neighborhood, so some have added huge lawn ornaments and motorized displays, making for a lavish holiday spectacle. Dyker Heights has truly become a “must-see” for many people during the holidays.

The Art Mob, an uncommon a cappella chorus, wows audiences with an oddball mix of offbeat, witty, and occasionally heartrending music from bygone days.  Now in its 37th year, the 15-member Mob specializes in Victorian parlor songs, Sacred Harp hymns, 1920s radio gospel, scary old children’s ditties, Tin Pan Alley numbers, English folk tunes, temperance anthems, jazz and doo-wop. The Fall 2017 concert delves into three of our favorite topics: drinking (or not); thinking (or not); and catchin’ fish (or not). Watch them weave these motifs into a coherent (or not) evening of harmony and fun. They open in ragtime and close in a rhumba. The performance concludes with a sing-along of favorite holiday carols. The Art Mob is: Brent Frederick (music director), Connie Beckley, Hannah Campbell, Gaynor Coté, Martin Donach, Frank Donno, Richard Haas, Lauren Hsu, Amanda Keating, Anne Kostick, Paul Martin Kovic, Emilia Mahaffey, Jaye Maynard, Dean Rainey, and Kirsten Skrinde.

Once described as the lungs of the city, Central Park brings a breath of fresh air to New York's crowded urban terrain. What started out as the rocky and desolate northern fringes of a rapidly expanding city is today among the world's most famous and beloved public parks. With over 843 acres of meadows, hills, ball fields and bodies of water, it's impossible not to find something to enjoy in Central Park.

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Known as America's first suburb, Brooklyn Heights is truly a gem. Travel and Leisure named it one of America's top 10 most beautiful neighborhoods, and its beauty is rivaled only by its place in American history. These quaint, tree-lined streets have been the sites of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism and have inspired numerous novelists. Visit a stop on the Underground Railroad, or the home of Truman Capote, where he penned Breakfast at Tiffany's and where Jackie Robinson signed with the Dodgers.

Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

The Cherry Orchard takes place on the grounds of Ranevskaya's estate, somewhere in the provinces of Russia. Unless the family can raise enough money to save it, the estate will have to be sold to clear her debts. Several plans are concocted, one of which entails cutting down their famous cherry orchard. But no one plan is settled upon. As August approaches, when the estate must be auctioned off to meet the mortgage payments, what unfolds in the household is a farewell of bittersweet beauty.

The Art Mob, an uncommon a cappella chorus, wows audiences with an oddball mix of offbeat, witty, and occasionally heartrending music from bygone days.  Now in its 37th year, the 15-member Mob specializes in Victorian parlor songs, Sacred Harp hymns, 1920s radio gospel, scary old children’s ditties, Tin Pan Alley numbers, English folk tunes, temperance anthems, jazz and doo-wop. The Fall 2017 concert delves into three of our favorite topics: drinking (or not); thinking (or not); and catchin’ fish (or not). Watch them weave these motifs into a coherent (or not) evening of harmony and fun. They open in ragtime and close in a rhumba. The performance concludes with a sing-along of favorite holiday carols. The Art Mob is: Brent Frederick (music director), Connie Beckley, Hannah Campbell, Gaynor Coté, Martin Donach, Frank Donno, Richard Haas, Lauren Hsu, Amanda Keating, Anne Kostick, Paul Martin Kovic, Emilia Mahaffey, Jaye Maynard, Dean Rainey, and Kirsten Skrinde.

Hundreds of tenor and bass tuba players will congregate to play Christmas carols and other crowd favorites. Tubists of all ages will line up under the famous Christmas tree and fill the plaza with the organ-line sound of low brass. Spectators are encouraged to sing along with the Christmas carols and holiday favorites. The musicians, hailing from across the country, will be conducted by Chris Wilhjelm, conductor of the famous Goldman band. Conceived by tuba virtuoso Harvey Phillips to honor his teacher, the late William J. Bell (Born Christmas Day, 1902), the first Tuba Christmas was presented at Rockefeller Center in 1974, conducted by Paul LaValle, of Band of America fame. This unusual Christmas tradition is firmly established in over 200 cities around the world.

When people think about holiday decorations in New York City, they usually think of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and the lavish store window displays. But some of the best sights to be seen are actually in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Starting in the 1980’s, Christmas started getting bigger and brighter out in Brooklyn with each passing year. Expect to see massive, professionally- done light displays (some costing upwards of $20,000!). There is an unspoken competition among the home owners in the neighborhood, so some have added huge lawn ornaments and motorized displays, making for a lavish holiday spectacle. Dyker Heights has truly become a “must-see” for many people during the holidays.
