From the choir: For the fourth year, our clarinet choir is performing in the Make Music New York music festival. We’re playing on June 21st, from 6 to 7 pm, in Washington Square Park. It’s free, the setting is beautiful, and the sound is terrific! We’re playing a mix of great old and new pieces by Brahms, Dvorak, Mozart, Grundman, and Ravel, among others.
Everything’s free! To find another location in the city, visit this page.
