Music No Boundaries: NYC

May 24-June 1, 2017
Nine days. Four boroughs. 20 performances. 83 musicians.

After touring Boston, Baltimore, and Dallas, Yellow Barn is bringing Music Haul to New York City for 10 days of sidewalk, plaza, and neighborhood performances in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. Over 70 Yellow Barn musicians will perform in 19 locations, from Times Square and Carnegie Hall, to PS21 and Bathgate Community Garden.

Titled “Music No Boundaries: New York City”, Seth Knopp’s programming includes: a day dedicated to Bach’s cello suites and a Memorial Day performance of “Musicians Indivisible: Protest Mix Tape” with Broadway musicians; the Juilliard and Brentano String Quartets performing late Beethoven, Bartók, and Mozart; the JACK Quartet and Sandbox Percussion; spoken word performances and Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect; and even a new work inspired by Dick van Dyke’s one-man-band.
