CONCERTS FROM CARS

Live music for the social-distancing era

WHAT WE DO

Concerts From Cars (CFC) offers a safe live music experience to residential communities in NYC while adhering to social distancing. CFC is the first project we are aware of that aims at both deliver music to your door and raise money for musicians in a time when all theaters and music venues have gone dark due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

CenterPoint Arts understands that throughout history music has been used to celebrate happy occasions, as well as to provide emotional support in times of crisis and even during terrifying events. Music uplifts people’s spirit during wars and disasters and even is used as a ritual during funerals in various traditions. In this difficult time for everyone, we bring music to the streets as a cure from cabin fever and us an uplifting force for everyone who struggle during the pandemic.

 

The Concerts From Cars musicians are mindful of staying 6 feet apart and not gathering a crowd. We keep performances short to prevent forming any gatherings.

BRING LIVE MUSIC TO YOUR BLOCK

As we continue to play surprise concerts, due to a popular demand we offer an opportunity for you and your neighbors to bring us to your block! Every week we will have 4 slots available in one borough. We will give an opportunity to residents of different boroughs to participate. Feel free to give live music as a gift to your community or crowdfund with your neighbors. 

 

DISCLAIMER: 

  • CFC will play a short concert on your block 
  • Safety is the priority. All audience members are asked to stand at least 6 feet apart from each other, unless you are members of the same household.

To book a live concert on your block, contact us at hello@centerpointarts.com
