Beat of the Boroughs NYC: Online

The Center for Traditional Music and Dance (CTMD) is proud to announce our program series Beat of the Boroughs: NYC Online made possible through the generous support of the New York Community Trust’s NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund and the Scherman Foundation. This online series celebrates the artistry of fifty of  New York City’s leading immigrant performers and diverse cultural traditions from around the world found right here in New York City, while furthering the public’s understanding and appreciation of their work in these difficult times.  

Starting October 5, 2020,  CTMD will highlight three artists or ensembles a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 5pm in an online format of their own creation. Whether a workshop, lecture-demonstration, or streamed live performance, a stellar cast of musicians and dancers presents their personal stories, remarkable traditions, and pandemic experiences. Arun Venugopal of WNYC will serve as the series host and introduce each episode.

This event series is part of CTMD's Sustaining Cultures Program Beat of the Boroughs: NYC Online.
