AFM Local 802 Musicians Perform Mozart in Central Park
NYC's performing arts have been shuttered since March and the musicians of AFM Local 802 have been left without steady work. However, they've still found creative opportunities to perform. This past October, conductor Tito Muñoz and violinist Giora Schmidt — along with a small group of colleagues — gathered impromptu in Central Park to perform some Mozart for pedestrians and onlookers. The musicians in this ensemble, all of whom make a living playing in orchestras and chamber music ensembles, had not performed in a group setting in over six months. AFM Local 802, through its campaign #SaveNYCMusicians, will be streaming the concert on Dec. 20 at 12 noon. More info here!
