Wordless Music : About

You can access archives online.

WNYC presents concerts from the Wordless Music Series, hosted by Radiolab's Jad Abumrad. Devoted to the desegregation of musical boundaries, Wordless Music pairs rock and electronic musicians with more traditional chamber and new music performers, to create an entirely new concert experience.

This program is supported, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
