Every first Wednesday of the month, settle in for an hour of musical serenity with rising stars from The Juilliard School.

Leave your emails and phone calls behind and join us for these free midday concerts featuring selections from some of classical music’s most beloved composers.

Featuring Soprano Jessica Niles, Mezzo-Soprano Erin Wagner, Tenor Chance Jonas-O’Toole, Baritone Kyle Miller, Pianist Bronwyn Schuman, and Pianist Michalis Boliakis.

The Spirio by Steinway & Sons is the official piano of The Greene Space.

This is free and open to all. Audience will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis and an RSVP does not guarantee your admission. If capacity is reached at any given time, we will maintain a line outside our doors and follow a one-in, one-out policy. We recommend arriving early to better secure entry to the venue.
