Brooklyn Bound

The loft scene is alive!

Now in its seventh year, Brooklyn Bound is a popular series of concerts at Sō’s working studio in the Navy Yard section of Brooklyn. When social distance became a necessity, we decided to create a new version and transition to a fully virtual one. Casual and intimate, the concerts feature us and emerging ensembles from our local scene.

New in 2019, the Brooklyn Bound Podcast! Check it out below on this page. Each batch of new episodes appears in the youtube playlist, which you can search on the upper right hand corner of the embedded video.

Brooklyn Bound is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
