A “gem of a series” (The New York Times)
The Chelsea Music Festival vision is to celebrate great music by bringing together world-leading musicians and exciting newcomers to the international stage. Inspired by its Chelsea roots, the Festival seeks to reflect the creativity gathered in one of New York City’s most dynamic neighborhoods by presenting site-specific programs that span musical genres ranging from classical to contemporary to jazz. With an emphasis on Festival-commissioned works, community outreach and education, the Festival also exists to create a gateway to music through the interplay of art forms – specifically the musical, visual and culinary – for an intimate and thrilling Festival experience shared by artists and concertgoers alike.
