(Sound UP!) Happened upon this fun scene at the corner of Broadway and 65th yesterday – it’s part of the @nyphilharmonic mobile “Bandwagon” program where the New York Philharmonic is presenting free, surprise “pull-up” performances by members of the the orchestra and other artists while NYC’s performing venues are still closed due to Covid. Who could ask for anything more, indeed?! ?? #nyphilharmonic #nyphilbandwagon #frontrowseats #covidkindness #makepeoplehappy #communityservice #bravo #kindnestquest ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #kindness #kindnessmatters #kindacts #bekind #loveandlight #beofservice #mindfulness #mindset #positivevibes #whocouldaskforanythingmore #uws #uwsnyc #nyc #singer #operasinger #performer #art #artists #orchestra #pickuptruck #actsofkindness #ilovetheuws
