Five Boroughs Music Festival
The New Music Capacity Building Program, made possible by The New York Community Trust, is designed for a diverse cohort of small-sized groups committed to presenting, performing, or promoting new music by living music creators on a regular basis.
Five Boroughs Music Festival’s mission is to enrich communities and cultivate new audiences by bringing world-class, affordable chamber music to all corners of New York City. We collaborate with local cultural institutions to present up-and-coming artists alongside the genre’s most distinguished performers. We challenge the standard definition of ‘chamber music’ by presenting a broad range of musical styles, from early music to contemporary works, world music and other non-classical forms.
The New York Times, “enterprising” by The New Yorker, and “vital” by WQXR’s Operavore blog, 5BMF’s commitment to musical outreach and engaging programming has distinguished us as a standout presence in the NYC arts community from our earliest days.
