FREE Vocal Performance: NYFOS@Julliard

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Broadway shows, in case you didn’t know, are very expensive. And while it’s very impressive to see live musical theater, it’s not always worth the hefty price tag. Thankfully, on occasion, you get events put on by the New York Festival of Song that showcase Broadway caliber talent for FREE.

From their website, NYFOS presents shows that are “intimate, original ensemble song programs consisting almost exclusively of rarely-heard songs of all kinds, from Debussy to doo-wop, lieder to latin jazz, Josquin to just-written.” These songs are compiled thematically and are then given a story arc. Typically, these shows cost a crap load of money. However, tonight at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Lincoln Center, NYFOS collaborates with The Julliard School (NYFOS@Julliard) for “Invitation to the Dance: Songs About Dancing and Songs with Dancing.” It’s the same type of show NYFOS does, but with students… so it’s FREE… but still damn good. It is Julliard.

Tickets are FREE, but are required. Call the box office to reserve them – 212-769-7406

A recent transplant from Orange County, California, Quincey is in the big city with an Empire State Building-sized craving for culture... and learning that "free" part of freelance. Having been a high school English teacher for the last few years, she sadly knows the penny pinching lifestyle all too well. She's got a freakishly adorable dachshund named Walter Matthau and she really enjoys taking a bite out of this Big Apple everyone keeps talking about. Quincey may look straight outta the 'burbs, but.. well, yeah, she's straight outta the 'burbs.
