FREE LIVE MUSIC

Ambient music by solo musicians from MTA Music Under New York

Monday - Friday, May to October 2019
Lunch 12-3pm
Happy Hour 5-8pm
Broadway Plazas between 42nd and 47th Streets

The 2020 season of free live music will be scheduled and adjusted as the COVID-19 public health crisis evolves. Sign up for our mailing list to receive updated information on our plans for the summer. We look forward to sharing music with you again soon!

Normally found in the subways, musicians from the MTA Music Under New York program joined us above ground for FREE performances again last summer. At Lunch and Happy Hour, audiences enjoyed New York City’s diversity and depth of talent with a bite and drink while relaxing in Times Square.
