GatherNYC's “Mindful Minutes” Online Series to Present World Premiere Video Performances

“Mindful Minutes,” the online venture of the popular Sunday morning New York concert series GatherNYC, will release a series of brief video premieres by noted musical artists throughout October.

All performances take place at 11am EST on GatherNYC’s Facebook page, and are designed to provide audiences with a mindful respite from these otherwise difficult days, and to give artists a platform to create impactful work in the absence of in-person performance opportunities.
