Barnard College’s all-female a cappella group Bacchantae.

On May 18, 2019, Barnard’s Make Some Noise: A Celebration of Women and Music concert will mark its fifth year highlighting young women musicians, in partnership with Summer on the Hudson (NYC Parks and Riverside Park Conservancy). The lineup features some of the best rising performers who are current students or recent graduates of New York City colleges and universities, and spans a wide range of musical genres: a cappella, folk, rock, international experimentation, and more. Selected through a citywide audition process, the artists represent women looking to make their mark in one of the world’s most vibrant music scenes, often reinventing traditional genre boundaries in the process.

Ecuadorian artist and recent New School graduate Luz Pinos

The fifth anniversary free event welcomes back some of the standout artists from previous concerts, including the College’s very own all-female a cappella group Bacchantae and soul singer-songwriter Eden Ariel ’19. Additional performers are from Columbia (jazz vocalist and tap dancer Liberty Styles; saxophonist, singer and composer Stephanie Chou), The New School (Ecuadorian singer Luz Pinos Band, winner of the Independent Music Award - Latin in 2018), and the School of Visual Arts NYC (the rock trio Castle Black). Performances will take place 5-9 p.m.

In the event of rain, the concert will take place in The Diana Center. Check here for updates.

Mark your calendars and #MakeSomeNoise!
