"It’s so nice to be able to see the audience, and see their joy. It’s infectious. There’s a lot of healing and hope in music, and unity. Right now with all the isolation and everything that’s going on in the world, I feel like we need a lot more community, we need more to bring us together, and music is a great vehicle and language to do that."  – Chrystal E. Williams, mezzo soprano and Musical Storefronts performer

Kaufman Music Center's Musical Storefronts pop-up concert series continues this spring, bringing live music back to NYC’s Upper West Side with more than 300 live performances. Concerts feature 202 of our city’s finest artists, including chamber musicians, soloists, Broadway stars from Hamilton, Tootsie and Company, and artists you’ll know from the Merkin Hall stage.

Presented in partnership with the Alphadyne Foundation, Musical Storefronts provides work to artists severely impacted by the cancellation of live performances in a format that takes into account all necessary health and safety measures for both artists and audiences. To limit crowd size and ensure social distancing, artists and programs will be announced at the storefront on the day of performances. We can’t reveal the UWS location north of Columbus Circle, but it's not hard to find!

Special thanks to Jay Dweck, Steinway & Sons, the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District, Milstein Properties and Breads Bakery.
