All movers and shakers are cordially invited to dance to the sounds of the acoustic improv musicians at the Open Music Circle, now six years old! We meet regularly in Brooklyn and Manhattan. There is no structured agenda and no director. The musicians sit in a circle or semi-circle and start with silence. Then someone begins to play or sing or move. Then we watch, listen to each other and, when we want, begin to play, vocalize or move accordingly, and so it goes. Finally we end the evening with silence.
To attend, first sign up for free on www.meetup.com and then join the Circle at www.meetup.com/openmusiccircle and finally rsvp there for the particular gathering you wish to attend. For additional informat0on email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help pay for on-line fees, supplies, instrument repairs, our Manhattan rent, and other operational expenses, a donation is requested from musicians and dancers alike at the end of the evening in the amount of $ 5 at each Circle in Brooklyn and $10 at each Circle in Manhattan.
In Brooklyn, we meet at the Circle Space, 485 Ocean Avenue; in Manhattan, we meet at the New York Insight Meditation Center, 28 West 27th St.
We meet on Sunday nights: on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month, we meet in Brooklyn from 7 – 9 PM; on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month we meet in Manhattan from 8:15 – 10 PM.
