Mutt-i-grees at Inwood NYPL

The North Shore Animal League brings in a shelter animal to show the wonders of empathy. Working together to create an adoption poster, teens help an animal to find a forever home – they give voice to the voiceless. We will give a brief on Animal League America, which is the world’s largest no-kill adoption shelter, and the origin of the word Mutt-i-gree. For ages 13 – 18 years old.

Listen Closely is a new chamber music initiative in Inwood, currently in our second season of events and concerts. We are a growing coalition of chamber musicians and composers living uptown, and we are dedicated to sharing quality chamber music with our neighborhood. Our name reflects our craft; as musicians, we are all about full­-hearted listening to one another and sharing intimate and memorable musical experiences with others through live performance. Additionally, we are listening closely to the pulse of our community to discover where and how the music we love is most needed.  Our hope is to create new and befriend existing music­ lovers of our neighborhood, and to do our part in developing a strong and vibrant local chamber music scene through educating, making connections, and trying new recipes.

We believe that classical music can be a powerfully positive presence in a community, and we hope to improve the quality of life in our neighborhood by providing affordable and convenient access to live performances, as well as sparking new romances between uptown locals and live chamber music.  So say hello!   Bring your ideas and dreams for music in Inwood.   We will listen closely.
