Bargemusic offers year-round performances of chamber music in the unique setting of a refitted coffee barge anchored under the Brooklyn Bridge. The 1896 former coffee barge is a permanently anchored floating concert hall at Fulton Ferry Landing at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. Founder and Director Olga Bloom has presented chamber music since 1977 in an incredibly beautiful spot. The wood paneled room provides first class acoustics and the views of Manhattan and the East River make this a wonderful holiday music destination.
