2012: The Year In Video

To celebrate the end of the year, we've gathered 10 videos from some of our favorite shows this season, many of which haven't been seen yet. Check out clips from our final show at the Old American Can Factory, Unsound NY 2012, Voices and Echoes, Philip Glass and more. Special thanks to our house videographer Damian Calvo!

As we prepare to continue programming outside of our home in 2013, we are asking for your help by becoming a Member now with a tax-deductible donation of $50, $100, $250 or more towards our critical year-end campaign to raise $25,000. Reaching this goal is essential for our continued presentation of groundbreaking artists in NYC.

We hope that you will join us to make 2013 another memorable year.
