The 2017 Chelsea Music Festival returns for its 8th season with the theme “Measuring Time,” exploring the experience of time through the visual, performing, and culinary arts. From June 9-17, 2017 in New York City, world-leading musicians and exciting newcomers will gather to create events that give audiences a chance to hear | taste | see. Combining this triptych of art forms has become the signature of the Chelsea Music Festival. 

There is something for everyone -- over two dozen events including evening concerts with music ranging from Classical to Jazz, to Late Night events, daytime Open-Air events and Saturday morning Family Events will take place in a wide range of venues throughout the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.
