Concerts & Events
Throughout the year, Third Street presents more than 250 free concerts by students, faculty and guest artists. Highlights include the Holiday Concert, the Stowe C. Phelps Annual Student Concert and String ’Stravaganzas, to name a few.
Third Street is also known in the community for two concert series it produces each year:
Music in Abe Lebewohl Park
Third Street’s free, outdoor summer concert series is held in the public park in front of historic St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, directly across the street from the School. Seven of these lunchtime concerts present professional bands representing musical traditions from around the world, including Klezmer, Flamenco, Jazz, Eastern European and Asian. The other concert features Third Street students participating in the school's summer chamber music workshop.
Concerts take place at 12:30 p.m. on most Thursdays throughout June and July. The series, presented by Third Street and the Tenth & Stuyvesant Streets Block Assocation, in cooperation with the Church, can attract audiences of 250 or more.

The LiveSOUNDS, which features free faculty performances most Fridays throughout the school year, is a highlight of Third Street's concert programming. It presents a cross section of a diverse and creative community of Third Street faculty members who are deeply committed to excellence and professionalism.
Performances take place at 7:00 p.m. in the school’s Anna-Maria Kellen Auditorium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. General seating is available on a first-come-basis.
