Save the Date: July 19-21, 2024: NYC PMN Convergence

06/05/2024 11:44 PM | Ben Grosscup (Administrator)

The New York City Chapter of the People's Music Network will host an in-person gathering of musicians and activists for peace and justice on the weekend of July 19-21, 2024.   It takes place at the Henry Winston Unity Hall on W 23rd Street in NYC.  This is a great chance for the beloved community of PMN -- both within NYC and beyond -- to gather, to sing, to share skills and musical traditions, and to continue building a community of artists who are dedicated to using their craft in service of the urgent movements we're part of.

There will be a welcome party and hybrid concert on Friday, July 19, which will include PMN members performing remotely.  We'll have a full day of workshops on Saturday, July 20 with an evening collaborative concert.  On Sunday, July 21, we'll have Songs of the Spirit.  Make your travel plans today!  We're aiming to support members to find housing in the city, and the process for that is still getting established.  Registration will be posted in early June.

How did this event come about? For many decades, long-time PMN members have gathered for a 3 day overnight music experiences around this time of year, usually at a remote summer camp location.  In 2024, the timing of that gathering had to be shifted to the Fall, because the camp hosting us only had one weekend available: October 4-6, 2024 in Groton, MA.  That left Summer 2024 open for an additional event, and the best date was July 19-21.  The Steering Committee is grateful to members of the local Chapter in NYC for stepping up to host us again as they have done many times before.  We realize this announcement is coming out later than we would prefer, but we also know that the local NYC Chapter is doing a very good job of including new artists and maintaining a vibrant musical culture with the monthly song gatherings they have been hosting since late last year.   So we're confident that drawing members together in NYC will be an inspiring experience.  Please consider attending!
