Kaufman Music Center

Ecstatic Music Festival®

More than 55 artists from across the sonic spectrum come together for nine collaborative, one-night-only performances, including three presented with WNYC’s New Sounds Live.

Hailed as “the alt-classical world’s main showcase” (The New York Times) and “a kind of heaven for show-goers in search of the ever-elusive, one-of-a-kind live music experience” (The Village Voice), Kaufman Music Center’s Ecstatic Music Festival returns for its sixth year, bringing together composers and performers from different musical genres or scenes for collaborations leading to performances that are adventurous and utterly unique.
