GatherNYC Announces SPRING 2021 Season At The Morris-Jumel Mansion

Featuring Laufey, New York Philharmonic musicians and more.

GatherNYC, the weekly concert series called "a sweet chamber music series" by The New York Times, returns for five Sunday afternoon outdoor concerts at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan's oldest surviving house. The series features top NYC talent including singer/songwriter/cellist Laufey, members of the New York Philharmonic and more.

Founded in 2018 by cellist Laura Metcalf and guitarist Rupert Boyd, GatherNYC presented 49 concerts featuring such acclaimed classical artists as the Dover, Brentano and Calidore quartets, clarinetist Anthony McGill, violinist Rachel Barton Pine and more, at SubCulture in downtown Manhattan before closing due to the pandemic. Designed to foster a sense of community around music, the shows last one hour, and also feature a spoken word performance and collective celebration of silence.

"Rupert and I are so thrilled to be bringing our concert series to Upper Manhattan, our own vibrant neighborhood, and to be sharing live music with the community when we need it most", says Metcalf. "The historic Morris-Jumel Mansion, a hidden gem of a destination itself, makes the perfect setting to present some of New York City's most accomplished and exciting performers." Boyd adds, "what I love about the season we have planned is the diversity and variety of music and performers. From traditional string quartets to genre-bending ensembles, there is truly something for everyone, and that's always been a central mission of GatherNYC: to engage both seasoned concertgoers and newcomers alike."
