A variety of musical styles will be performed by a wide range of talent, locally as well as from other NYC neighborhoods. An array of musical styles from Urban to R&B, Soul, Latin, and Theatrical comprise the lineup of various ages of performers. Fortunately an outdoor event with a 1200-seating capacity, social distancing will be encouraged as well as mask wearing.
