Throwback To Last Year

Our Performers

Stoops, school lots, parks, gardens and sidewalks will host more than 150 musicians throughout the day, including classical musicians, marching bands, kids groups, and so much more. The first four artists have been revealed below. Who else will be joining the 2023 lineup? Check back soon to find out!


It has eight arms and is an incredibly sensitive and intelligent organism. But it doesn’t live at the bottom of the ocean, it’s from Brooklyn! Bachtopus is an accordion quartet focusing on the music of J.S. Bach, traditional music, and contemporary music from around the world.

Ajada Reigns

Born in NYC, Ajada Reigns is one of the smoothest soul and RnB vocalists you can find. When she’s not on the road performing with Chaka Khan, Mary J Blige, and Vic Mensa, she develops her own blend of positive vocal artistry.

Jonathan Michel

You’ve seen him at BKCM with such artists as Tahira Clayton, Vuyo Sotashe and more, now Jonathan Michel steps into the center stage with his trio, delving into the historical nuances of Black American music and his Haitian roots. “My Haitian culture is a part of me, so it’s always welcome as a talking point.”
