The Rite of Spring changed music forever. The first audience couldn't stay in their seats, and why should they? It was the most revolutionary piece of music ever performed, and it's designed to make you move.

We're bringing this bad-ass piece back to its roots, and inviting you to shake it to the Glorification of the Chosen One.

The Rite of Spring conducted by James Blachly, performed by the Experiential Orchestra, comprised of 85 of New York City's very hottest musicians in Fort Greene Brooklyn, with YOU the audience invited to dance, house-party style, to the entire live performance.

This has never been done before in the history of the world (except once, last January, when we got hot and sweaty in Boston), and it will be revolutionary to the way you experience orchestral music.

All proceeds from tickets go to support Musicambia - a non-profit organization creating music schools in the prisons and jails of the United States. Musicambia currently works at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining, New York and Allendale Correctional Institute in Fairfax, South Carolina. Learn more about this incredible organization at

Things to note:

Beer will likely be for sale.

Shoes off at coat check.

No rioting.

Dance like crazy.


Experiential Orchestra Orchestra with wild ideas for audience involvement and experience

Everyone! If you show up at the venue at 7, we're having a happy hour with $1 off drinks, so you should come then!!! And remember: dance hard. It's what Stravinsky would have wanted.

Hey all! Thanks so much for coming out last night. Check out our digital program at for more about the piece, links to recordings on Apple Music and Spotify, and more! Also, check out your lovely dancing selves on our Facebook (, Twitter (, and Instagram feeds ( -- and post pics you took hash tagged #groupmuse #bealive and #RiteOfSpringRave! We love you all and can't wait to see you again soon.

Alan Hyde, about 7 years ago

great performance! You assembled some of NYC's most talented musicians who donated their time and soul. I think you should list all their names in your online program.

Frank Montaturo, about 7 years ago

More such events!

Lauren Rennee, about 7 years ago

This event was incredibly special. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to move to this piece. How did I ever listen to this piece while sitting still ?!

Aj Stillabower, about 7 years ago

This event blew me away. I've been a fan of the Rite of Spring for years. Never going to feel it the same.

Anna Ciriani, about 7 years ago

This is probably the best event I've been to in New York City in the past year! My entire body hurts today, but in a good way. Thanks to Groupmuse, Musicambia, Stravinsky, and let's not forget important names that were forgotten, Vaslav Nijinsky, the innovate choreographer, and Sergei Diaghilev, the director of Ballet Russes, who made 50% of the riot-inspiring production possible.
