Juilliard: Paul Recital Hall

If you are like me, a New Yorker without much money, and want to take in some ofthe cultural events that the city offers, check out the Saturday night free concerts at the Juilliard School’s Paul Recital Hall. A combination of grants and the need to have students perform in order to receive their Master of Music Degrees make these concerts possible. It may not be Lincoln Center, but it is right next to it and the students are very good. The 8:30 at night shows and the comfortable atmosphere allow you to engage in some art and still have time to go out. The only trouble is you don’t know what you are going to see in advance.
