New York Live Arts Announces Sound Bar Program at Live Gallery Cafe
New York Live Arts announces Sound Bar, a new program featuring live music curated by New York Live Arts in association with LE TRAIN BLEU, with happy hour drink specials at the Live Gallery Cafe? on select Mondays in the fall, winter and spring, starting in November.
Sound Bar kicks off on November 4 at 7:00pm with two world premieres by The Brothers Balliet, featuring Brad Balliet's Concerto Gross and Doug Balliet's New rap canata. Performers include Brad Balliet on the bassoon, Doug Balliet on the double bass, Catherine Gregory on the flute, Megan Levin on the harp and Colin Davin on the guitar.
Other groups will perform on select Mondays in November and December, including the Aaron Irwin Trio (November 18), Sandbox Percussion Quartet (November 25) and more. See complete listing info below.
The launch of Sound Bar will give up and coming music artists opportunities to work in the intimate setting of Live Arts' converted lobby; conversely, audiences will enjoy experiencing the acoustic music performances in an informal setting.
"Engaging artists is a vital daily presence here at New York Live Arts," noted Producing Director Michael Lonergan. "Launching Sound Bar is another way for us to continue our support of contemporary artists in the creation of new work while allowing them a platform for audience engagement. Our goal is to continue to expand our footprint of creativity by offering more opportunities for artists."
All Sound Bar evenings take place at the Live Gallery Cafe? in New York Live Arts' ground floor lobby. The Live Gallery Cafe? will serve happy hour drink specials and a menu of savory bites from 6:00 - 9:00pm on Sound Bar evenings. Admission is free; reservations are not required. Program and artists subject to change. New York Live Arts is located at 219 West 19th Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues) in New York City.
