The United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA) joyfully presents The Crack-a-lackin’ Classical Concert, a multi-genre musical performance made for the community, by the community. “Crack-a-lackin’” is old-time (as far back as the 1990s!) urban slang for what’s new, relevant, and happening. We think it is a great description of how people should feel about classical music.

The program celebrates the beauty of classical music by showcasing it in innovative and unexpected ways, highlighting the dynamic talents of performers of all ages. The performance features music by both living and deceased composers interpreted through voice, instruments, dance, video and even turn tables. The evening culminates with the illustrious New York Youth Symphony performing Symphonie Fantastique by Hector Berlioz.

Featured artists include:

DJ Boo

Julia Bengtsson Dance

Leadlights Ensemble

New York Youth Symphony

Washington Heights Community Choir

The Young People’s Chorus of New York City

We are committed to making classical music accessible for all, so come and see for yourself!
