On March 22 for Women’s History Month, enjoy a marathon of music on Manhattan West Plaza by women artists from around the globe, based in NYC. Lunchtime and evening performances will feature music rooted in locations as far away as Venezuela and Sudan, and as close as next door. This event is free to attend and open to the public.

In the spirit of International Women’s Day (celebrated on March 8), fresh flowers will be gifted during the event, a tradition followed worldwide in appreciation and respect for women and all of their achievements from 11:30am-1:30pm.
