COUNTDOWN TO NYE
As part of Time Out’s Love Local Campaign, these seven virtual concerts are free to view.
Join us in celebrating the creativity and resilience of our community with a songwriting challenge and virtual concert series featuring new original songs written in response to the present moment, about artists' feelings right now, community, Broadway and the Theater District, and New York City. The participating songwriters are all past performers in our Broadway Buskers concert series, which showcases Broadway actors and composers who are also singer-songwriters. A panel of industry judges will select a winner during the final concert on June 21st.
We encourage viewers to vote for their favorite song in each concert and to donate to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund, which provides resources and emergency financial assistance to those within the entertainment community who have been impacted by the pandemic, and the Broadway Advocacy Coalition, in support of their ongoing efforts to help Broadway heal, listen and become an anti-racist and equitable community.
