Music Humanities

The following is a listing of some New York City concert opportunities for Music Humanities students. Many of these venues present concerts that might be very appropriate for concert reports. Many offer free concerts. A number of organizations offer student rush tickets; please check the websites for that information, or check the CUArts student discount page.

Please report any errors or dead links to Susan Boynton, Chair of Music Humanities, at slb184@columbia.edu. Also inform Prof. Boynton if there are sites you would like to see added to this list.
