mta logoMTA Arts & Design has invited 27 groups and performers to join the Music Under New York program (MTA MUSIC) following a competitive applications process and auditions that were held in May.

 
These 27 musical acts join a roster of more than 350 performers and groups that are hosted at select high-traffic areas in the New York City Transit system and at MTA commuter rail stations.

 
This year, Arts & Design received 233 applications, out of which 70 were asked to audition before a panel of judges and the public at Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall on May 18. Finalists were scored on criteria, variety, and appropriateness for the mass transit environment. The judges included representatives from cultural institutions, music professionals and MTA operations staff.

 
Arts & Design typically adds 20 to 25 acts each year to the Music Under New York program. Once accepted into the program, performers are scheduled at among 30 select locations within the transit system such as Grand Central Terminal and subway station, Penn Station, the new TurnStyle marketplace at 59 St-Columbus Circle and the 42 St-Times Square station complex. Arts & Design hosts approximately 7,500 performances each year.
