UpBeat NYC at Free Radio/Cue Art Foundation

From April 10th-13th UpBeat NYC took over the Cue Art Foundation's gallery space as one of five communities participating in the Free Radio exhibit. Each day the kids practiced, rehearsed as an ensemble and documented their experience using Free Radio's equipment.

Our Free Radio culminating event, Instant Orchestra, was on Friday, April 13th when musicians from around the city joined the kids in a public performance at the Cue gallery. Guest musicians included Jose Ortiz, aka Dr. Drum, with his group BombaYo, Makane Kouyate, Jose Rosario, Charlie Caldarola, Fred Pratt and Peter Weitzner.
