On January 20th, 2017, all-star musicians from throughout the experimental and jazz communities of NYC will come together for a marathon fundraiser concert/dance party in the acoustically intimate Mary Flagler Cary Hall at the The DiMenna Center for Classical Music. The concert is FREE to attend, and will provide laptop stations for attendees to donate funds for institutions that uphold America’s democracy and diversity including ACLU, LAMBDA Legal, Planned Parenthood, Southern Poverty Law Center, Hollaback!, and more. Representatives from organizations will be in attendance. 

Join us in our response to the current political climate for a night of positive action, deep listening, ecstatic sound, and community. 

FREE - attendees are encouraged to donate to their preferred social activist organizations - credit cards accepted via laptop stations

Attendees are invited, but not required, to participate in a potluck of snacks to sustain us as we listen and dance and donate the night away. Lainie and Jascha will be bringing vegan oatmeal cookies. Jay will be bringing his wife Heather's vegan cupcakes, John will be bringing brownies.

New Music on the Point

  • Leicester, VT

JACK's summer home in Vermont, New Music on the Point is a contemporary chamber music institute for composers and performers. For two weeks each June, thirty young composers and twenty young performers work side-by-side with JACK on the preparation and performance of thirty new chamber works in addition to existing contemporary music. New Music on the Point invites a young string quartet to be on fellowship each summer so that they may study intensively with JACK on the interpretation of existing contemporary works as well as several new works. It's a truly magical experience all around!
