Join your fellow NYC Groupmusers for a Night Out at the 5 Boroughs Music Festival, as they kick off their 2022-2023 season with a bang at The Chapel at Hebrew Union College.

A special co-production with on site opera, this new cycle of fifteen songs, duets, and ensembles by fifteen composers was commissioned in honor of 5BMF’s 15th Anniversary and On Site Opera’s 10th Anniversary seasons, and marks the third installment of 5BMF’s critically-acclaimed quinquennial FIVE BOROUGH SONGBOOK project. 5BMF welcomes back an all-star lineup of artists, including performers from the acclaimed vocal super-group Kaleidoscope Music Ensemble.

Featuring new works by Arianne Abela, Raquel Acevedo Klein, Kinan Azmeh, Colin Britt, Majel Connery, Laura Jobin-Acosta, Will Healy, Brian Lawlor, Jessica Meyer, Angélica Negrón, Nkeiru Okoye, Juri Seo, Aaron Siegel, Darian Donovan Thomas, and Jonathan Woody, the Songbook derives its inspiration from locations scattered throughout New York City — three songs for each borough — to create a mosaic of the city’s past, present and future.
