About the Festival

We want you to look at music as though you’re experiencing it for the first time.

Through five dazzling events, artists and musicians from the corners of the globe bring art and music together through shared creative experience. And you’ll be part of it.

Witness how Julian Rachlin’s unparalleled Beethoven sonatas inspire an astonishing installation of video art by Clifford Ross. See the New York City premiere of the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s groundbreaking The Reef. And much more.

What do you want to see?

The Seeing Music festival is underwritten by Eva and John Usdan, Martin and Suzi Oppenheimer and the Adele and John Gray Endowment Fund.
