Need Lunch Plans? Stop By Our Final Free Summer Concerts on July 10 and 17

If you haven’t caught one of our free lunchtime concerts — or if you have, but haven’t braved the dance floor yet — there are still two more performances this season. On Wednesday, July 10, Grammy-nominated trumpeter Alphonso Horne and his Gotham Kings will perform on the plaza at 140 Broadway; the following Wednesday, July 17, our concert series will conclude with a jazzy bang, with Christopher McBride & the Whole Proof bringing down the house at WTC’s North Oculus Plaza. Both shows start at noon and are free to attend.

As a reminder, our six-week free concert series, which is part of the Alliance’s Art Is All Around campaign, kicked off on June 12, with nationally recognized artists bringing exhilarating sounds of jazz, blues, salsa, bolero, cha-cha-cha, soul and pop music along with exciting tap, swing and modern jazz dancing to downtown New York. Programmed by esteemed New York musician and producer Svetlana Shmulyian, the series has been a hit, garnering lunchtime crowds and quite a few active participants over the last few weeks. Be sure to check out the series’ last two installments in the coming weeks, and tag us @downtownnyc on IG when you share your show!
