For the third year in a row, I will be volunteer curator of a stage of music at Union Square in conjunction with the September Concert, a fantastic organization that produces and promotes musical events for peace all over NYC and the world on September 11th.
This year, in addition to the Union Square stage, I am also producing a more intimate evening concert at South Oxford Space in Brooklyn, thanks to my wonderful friends at American Opera Projects, one of the resident organizations at the space.
Both concerts are free. For the open air Union Square concert, just come on down. For the indoor South Oxford Space show, I recommend that you order your free tickets in advance. You can also just show up – more than likely there will be space! This concert is being held under the auspices of American Opera Projects’ Helping Hands program. Directions to the space are here.
The evening show has the theme/title: “Home Grown: a Harvest of Fresh Music for Peace.” It includes performances of mostly original music by Brooklyn- and New York City area-based classical and jazz musicians and also features fresh organic produce from local farms.
