One of the few places to hear classical music on a Sunday evening, Bargemusic offers world-class musicians in an unusual place. While the views of Manhattan through the windows are nice, the lack of any terracing means that if you're in the back, you can't see the musicians. If you don't care about seeing them, then the setting is just... More

Who would have thought that you could enjoy chamber music while floating on the East River overlooking the Manhattan skyline at dusk? This barge provides the ultimate view of New York City while giving you the chance to listen to some of the city's best performers play a great variety of repertoire. Don't miss this!

It's an easy subway ride on the F to the first stop in Brooklyn in a wonderful area known as Dumbo. Fabulous view of the Manhattan skyline in back of the stage while excellent chamber music is performed. Highly recommended. Details can be found on www.bargemusic.org Warning to people with motion issues, the barge rocks gently with the tide. There... More

We attended a solo piano recital on a Friday evening. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our seats. Beautiful music and a unique setting. We were staying in Manhattan but it was easy to get here and tickets can be purchased from the website in advance. A good programme of music for everyone. Highly recomended.

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
