The Midtown Concerts series provides exceptional and interactive musical experiences to our audiences. Offering 40+ distinctive FREE weekly concerts, our series aims to nurture local artists at all stages of their careers and to contribute to the enhancement of a more vibrant early music community. We are proud to provide performance opportunities for over 200 artists, featuring local, national, and internationally acclaimed groups, and serving over 3,000 audience members each year. Each program features unique historically informed repertoire on period instruments. Our ultimate goal is to offer a meaningful contribution to New York’s cultural tapestry, making rarely heard music accessible to all and enriching the musical lives of the members of our community. We are proud to offer the greatest number and most diverse free concerts in the city, and we hope to continue reaching new audience members every week.
