The Broadway Bach Ensemble puts on three main concerts in New York each year, including a winter (Feb), Spring (May) and Fall (Oct) concerts. The organisation does not charge for admission to their concerts. Instead they ask for donations as their official website explains:

“We don't charge admission for our concerts. We rely on the kindness of friends and strangers to finance the innovative concerts that we offer to the public for free. Even though all our musicians generously volunteer their time, a typical season costs thousands of dollars to put on. Our costs include rehearsal and performance space, insurance, music and instrument rentals, printing and postage, and more.”

Broadway Bach Ensemble’s free Winter 2016 concert is this Sunday, February 7, at 2016 at 2:00 p.m. located at Broadway Presbyterian Church, 114th Street and Broadway (opposite Columbia University).
