Not So Kleine


One of the great strengths and joys of NYC is the music scene. Home to some of the greatest and most diverse venues in the world: from the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden to small clubs like the Village Vanguard, the Blue Note, Irving Plaza, CBGB, the Knitting Factory, Mercury Lounge ... And then there are the music schools - some of the finest in the country - Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, Mannes School, Third Street Settlement... And then there are the streets and parks. I am constantly amazed at the quality and sophistication one can find right on the street. Many are students from the fine, aforementioned schools which I imagine these in the photo are. This was shot at Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. Here's my short VIDEO of them playing Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. Many, many musicians move to New York just for the opportunities - but be forewarned, the competition is very tough and the city harsh - New York spits artists out as fast as it sucks them in.

If you can make it in New York, I've heard it said, you can make it ANYWHERE.

Love it - reminds me of a video I took in the Paris subway of a group of people playing Pachelbel's Canon!
