Make Music New York – Music in the Oak Grove

June 21, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

NYU Faculty Housing Happenings include a per season public offering designed to celebrate our outdoor spaces on the superblocks headlined by the Oak Grove. Recommended by the Superblock Stewardship Advisory Committee, these community events are generously supported by Provost Katherine E. Fleming and organized by Erin Donnelly, Community Liaison, Office of Faculty Housing & Residential Services, who has been orchestrating events, arts and cultural programming for nearly two decades.

This season’s summer sosltice lineup includes family-friendly performances by:

Billy Newman Quintet
As a leading exponent of the music of Brazil, Billy Newman along with his Quintet offers a panoramic glimpse into Brazilian musical repertoire through the deep-rooted harmonic and rhythmic language of Samba, Jazz, and Choro, highlighting its parallels with jazz improvisation. Featuring Billy Newman (acoustic guitar), Ben Holmes (trumpet), Michael Attias (alto saxophone), Leco Reis (acoustic bass), Scott Neumann (drums).

Dan Levinson’s Palomar Jazz Band featuring Molly Ryan
Fronted by world-class reedman Dan Levinson and featuring the enchanting vocalist Molly Ryan, the Palomar Jazz Band brings together the cream of New York City’s flourishing hot jazz scene to blend hot, stomping 1920s jazz with the classy elegance of the 1930s. Put on your dancing shoes as this performance is swing dance-friendly! Featuring Mike Davis (trumpet), Jim Fryer (trombone), Dan Levinson (clarinet/tenor sax), Art Bailey (piano), Tal Ronen (bass), Kevin Dorn (drums), Molly Ryan (vocals).
