Notes from the Captain’s Log

Dear Bargemusic Family,

 Welcome back aboard the Barge! Bargemusic is pleased to bring you concerts with social distancing beginning April 30, 2021.

In compliance with government regulations regarding Covid-19, all audience members, staff, and performers must pass a Covid screening questionnaire and contactless temperature check before entry to the Barge.

While on the Barge, face coverings must be worn at all times by patrons, staff, and performers, with the exception that artists may remove face coverings for the duration of the performance.

For May and June concerts, all staff members and performers must provide proof of full vaccination status (completed at least 14 days prior to the performance date) or proof of negative Covid test (PCR or NAATs, performed within 72 hours of the performance start time; or antigen test performed within 6 hours of start time of the event). 

Beginning July 1, all audience members, staff, and performers must provide proof of full vaccination status at the door. 

We’ve been trimming the ropes and swabbing the decks in anticipation of your return. This winter we repaired and repainted our roof, repaired and resealed our floors, benches, and stage, inspected and improved our fire prevention systems, and continued the routine maintenance that keeps the Barge cheerfully floating at its Fulton Landing mooring.

With very limited seating, these programs will feel like your very own semiprivate events! We are implementing hygienic practices as needed to make sure you can enjoy your Bargemusic concerts.

Together we’ve weathered rough seas in the past, and together we will continue our incredible musical journey.

With much gratitude and love,

Mark Peskanov and Everyone at Bargemusic


Bargemusic — New York City’s floating concert hall

Moored in Brooklyn just under the Brooklyn Bridge, Bargemusic presents great music year-round. Walk across the gangplank of a renovated coffee barge into a “wonderfully intimate wood-paneled room with thrilling views of lower Manhattan and excellent acoustics.” Experience why critics call Bargemusic “the perfect chamber-music hall” and why artists say it is “unlike any other place in the world to perform.”
