Vered and the Babes are a downtown Doo-Wop band meets an upbeat Peter, Paul, and Mary. Their playful vocal harmonies and creative instrumentation including lively horns and even pots and pans keep parents and kids jumping and singing along throughout the show. They sing about everything that being a parent and a baby brings—the elated highs of loving each other and the much needed time outs—for the parents! Vered's albums, Good Morning My Love and Hello My Baby are Gold Award Winners from both the Parents' Choice Foundation and from National Parenting Publications. Parents often say that Vered’s music is like a soundtrack to life with their little ones because it brings them together in the loving and playful moments and feels like an understanding friend in the challenging ones.

Jeanette Berry and the Soul Nerds is a revolving group of musicians centered around lead vocalist Jeanette Berry and her original songs. Whether R&B, Soul, Jazz, Reggae, the Blues, Funk or Neo-Soul, this group tells stories through music that bridge over genres to the heart of all things—love.

Miranda Writes is a crusader for positivity. Heavily influenced by classic hip-hop and current legends alike, Writes relentlessly fires her message "Light Prevails Dark" over nostalgic but catchy beats. Hip-hop fans spanning generations have acclaimed Writes a breath of fresh air for her timeless style and meaningful lyrics.

j and the 9s are a hard hitting, costumed flute rock experience from Brooklyn that breed together rock-and-roll riffs, the raw sound of punk, and an entertaining interactive stage show.

Cecilia Villar Eljuri’s music is a mirror on this generation’s global fusion reflecting her Spanish and Lebanese heritage, the rhythms of her homeland, Ecuador, and the punk and rock and roll from the melting pot of her youth in NYC. Eljuri filters life’s daily cacophony into beautiful music with vital meaning. She floats, indeed soars to heights unreached by any other Latina electric guitarist.

Gymboree will be at the event all day with a play area for the tiny people in your lives!

Kick off the weekend with some local sounds at this monthly musical get-happy hour.

Every month Summer on the Hudson features a different artist to get your weekend started right. Meet up in West Harlem Piers Park with friends on the last Friday of the month for great music, fresh air, and beautiful scenery.

May 27
Elle Winston - This Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter's sound might best be described as a meeting of folk-legend James Taylor and powerful songstress Jill Scott. Her music is a deep mixture of jazz-inspired soul music, with hints of blues and rock—true American roots music.

June 24
Tattoo Money - Downtown stories fuse indie rock sounds with an 808

July 29
Consumata Sonidera - This performance features heavy tropical rhythms, sweet horn melodies, and vibrant percussions. Consumata collages a full spectrum of local and global sounds by means of cut-ups.

Aug 26
The Bones of J.R. Jones - "He's a one man band who can hold an audience rapt, rendering the cacophony of a stage full of musicians utterly unnecessary." - Noisey.Vice

Join NYC Parks for a special concert featuring Taikoza. Taikoza has created a new sound using the thunderous rhythms of the ancestral Taiko drums and the magical sounds of the bamboo flutes. Roughly translated, Taiko means big drums, and that’s exactly what Taikoza brings—big drums, powerful rhythms, and electrifying, room-thumping energy. This exciting group draws from Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance to create a highly visual performance.

About Taikoza
Taikoza was formed in New York City by members of Ondekoza (the group that started the renaissance of Taiko in Japan in the 60s and introduced Taiko to the world). The members of Taikoza have performed on stages and parks around the world.

Though born in Baltimore, longtime New Yorker Philip Glass is known one of the city’s iconic musical figures. He will help Make Music New York usher in its second decade by playing from his Etudes for piano at Pier I in Riverside Park, along with nineteen students from New York City public schools, starting at 5:00 p.m.

Glass wrote the Etudes over an extended period (twenty years), originally starting the project to develop his own skills as a pianist. These lovely pieces will form the perfect backdrop to a beautiful twilight in Riverside Park.

Make Music New York, dubbed “the largest music event ever to grace Gotham” (Metro New York), celebrates its 10th year with a cornucopia of free, outdoor public concerts all around the city on Tuesday, June 21, the first day of summer. Since the festival first began in 2007, Make Music New York has become an indispensable part of the city’s cultural life, offering a dazzling array of events in all five boroughs. Wrote Russell Platt of The New Yorker, “...this project has overrun the city with song and sound on the first day of summer, brimming with more than twelve hundred concerts in all imaginable genres.”

Music Director Lutz Rath has announced the 58th season of the Washington Square Music Festival, taking place Tuesdays in June at Washington Square Park. The Festival is under the auspices of the Washington Square Association, Inc. Seating is first-come, first-served.

The New York Jazzharmonic, Ron Wasserman leader
Enjoy an evening of classic jazz, featuring the first performance of a work by Fred Hellerman, co-founder in 1948, with Pete Seeger, of The Weavers, a group that launched American’s folk music revival. Fred is the only surviving member of The Weavers. Fred Hellerman’s “Fourths of July” was composed in 1987 and was never performed. The piece was originally scored for symphony orchestra, but is being re-orchestrated by Ron Wasserman for a jazz orchestra instrumentation.

The Washington Square Music Festival is made possible with public funding through Councilmember Margaret Chin and The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency. Generous grants from The Earle K. & Katherine F. Moore Foundation, The Horace Goldsmith W. Foundation, Washington Square Association, Music Performance Trust Fund, The Margaret Neubart Foundation Trust, New York University Community Affairs & NYU Community Fund, Salamon-Abrams Family Fund, Three Sheets/Off the Wagon/Down the Hatch, Con Edison, and the Washington Square Park Conservancy, are deeply appreciated, as is invaluable help from NYC Parks & Recreation.
