Northeast corner of Broadway & 62nd Street on NYC's Upper West Side

Last winter, Kaufman Music Center brought live music back to NYC with a free, pop-up concert series that delighted 31,000 audience members and provided work to more than 200 artists when theaters were dark and cultural institutions still shuttered. Beginning on February 3, the popular storefront series returns with a brand-new season of surprise performances ranging from classical, jazz and the Great American Songbook to R&B, Gospel and groundbreaking new music by artists dynamically bridging genres and cultures. The 2022 performers include soloists, duos, string quartets, chamber ensembles, Broadway stars, vocal ensembles and more, including many artists who have appeared at Kaufman Music Center’s Merkin Hall.

Artists and programs will be announced on a rolling basis here and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Concerts will take place several days a week at 11 am and 12 & 1 pm, and at 4, 5 & 6 pm.
