A cool thing to do in New York is the annual Music Under New York Auditions held each year in Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central. Mark your Calendar for May 13th.
From 9am-3pm 50+ musicians will vie for the coveted slot of being able to schedule performances in MUNY sanctioned locations throughout NYC.
Hope to see you there, and it's FREE
