Main Information

Artist Name or Name of Institution

Greenwich Village Orchestra



Columbus Pl, New York, NY, USA



The Greenwich Village Orchestra is comprised of New York City area musicians who work in a wide range of professions. We come together as diverse individuals in order to create something larger than ourselves in an ongoing musical collaboration. Our music making mirrors the need for all people on this planet to put their personal differences aside and unite in committing to making sustainable changes to our lifestyles to protect our environment.

In this 250th anniversary year of Beethoven’s birth, we must look to the future as well as reflect on the past. It is sobering to imagine this planet 250 years from now, in the year 2270, if the Earth’s climate changes as currently projected. Our natural world has surely changed dramatically since Beethoven’s time, but humanity’s dependence on its continued survival endures.
