Bargemusic by Manhattan Skyline!

Breath taking setting at the base of Brooklyn Bridge with the Manhattan Skyline in the back ground. Music was melodic and soothing to the senses. Quirky and fun thing to do in NY.

I attended a concert here recently in which a group of musicians visiting from St Petersburg performed a number of lighter pieces. The show was excellent with the music enhanced by the slight rocking motion of the barge. The atmosphere is refreshingly casual and I found myself chatting amicably with those around me, as well as a young composer, one... More

We have been going to Barge music for over 25 years. The first time was with our 5 year old son. Olga asked if he was studying violin, which he was. When she heard that, she had him sit on the stage with the musicians "so he would feel the vibration". We have heard amazing performances here including Steven Beck... More

This didn't exist when I was growing in Brooklyn Heights. I'm glad my Mom took us today. It can be a little strange with the barge rocking, but how many concerts do you get to speak with the orchestra and look through the windows and watch the passing street scene? A great evening! http://iamanauthorimustauth.wordpress.com/2014/08/04/august-3rd-2014-the-brooklyn-waterfront/

Barge music is a place to hear chamber music with a view of Brooklyn bridge and the Manhattan skyline. The level of performance is very high, as is the level of audience. Here you will find real music lovers, not people who take their dress to a concert. I have been here several times over the past 20 years, and... More

We went for the New Year's evening performance and it was an unfortunate experience. We want to have wonderful classical music in Brooklyn but concerned about that future after an hour of slurry piano playing, uneven tempos and occasional bow screeching. Other people left when we did. Perhaps new talent is needed in this beautiful space.

I've lived in New York City my entire life, with the exceptions of some adventures in undergrad and the Far East, but I only just learned about Bargemusic a couple of months ago. While the music is the main draw, the view makes this place special. Beware, the barge is susceptible to disturbances in the water, i.e. if you get... More

I'm almost afraid to share this "secret" find for fear it could overwhelm it. But rarely have I been pleased at so many levels. Easy to walk by and "see" without noticing, the small white barge next to the Water Taxi landing at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge offers: 1) Excellent classical music performances; 2) Stunning views of the...

What a unique place to hear beautiful music. You can look out at the New York skyline and sometimes even feel the slight movement of the barge. The musicians are top notch. A wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

I fell in love with this place! It is romantic, beautiful, unique. The music selection is great, the view is splendid! It is the best place to take your other half and propose!
