Uncharted is a concert series that encourages artists to take risks, work out new or existing material, collaborations, and projects for an intimate concert experience. In keeping with Greenwich House Music School’s artist advocacy work, 100% of ticket and merchandise sales go directly to artists. Now in its sixth year, Uncharted alumni include Aaron Diehl, Marc Ribot, Brianna Thomas, Molly Pope, Dom Flemons, Sofia Rei, Michael Daves, Emeline Michel, Deva Mahal, Bora Yoon, Cynthia Hopkins, and Dan Tepfer.

In 2019, the co-founders of Uncharted, Jennie Wasserman and Rachel Black, created the New York Presenters Consortium (NYPC), a career development model comprised of a network of non-profit arts organizations, designed to leverage the collective resources of New York’s most innovative arts presenters in creative and financial support of artists developing new and existing work. The Consortium now includes Joe’s Pub, David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, National Sawdust and Harlem Stage.

As part of the NYPC, select Uncharted artists will have the opportunity to be in residence at GHMS. Sponsored artists are provided with free rehearsal space to workshop their productions, as well as personalized marketing and promotional services to promote both their Uncharted concert and future presentations of their work. After their residency, they will begin a series of performances through the Consortium partner venues with the aim of developing evergreen programs that can sustain not only the individuals’ creative output, but also improve the health of the NYC cultural ecosystem

Tickets are $15, unless otherwise noted, and include complimentary beer and wine. Uncharted takes place at Greenwich House Music School’s intimate, 100-seat Renee Weiler Concert Hall. Concerts are general admission and seating is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

In lieu of Uncharted‘s 2020 season, Greenwich House Music School is pleased to announce the Uncharted Residency Program.

Trumpeter Riley Mulherkar, singer/songwriter Zawadi Noël; producer/vocalist Linda Briceño and dancer/singer Migguel Anggelo are all busy NYC-based musicians who have lost most of their year’s touring revenue due to COVID-19. All of them were scheduled to perform in Greenwich House’s Renee Weiler Recital Hall at the annual West Village music series Uncharted in April before it was cancelled due to the pandemic. Now, thanks to a generous multi-year grant from the Baisley Powell Elebash Fund, Greenwich House Music School (GHMS) is happy to announce that the show will go on. This grant ensures that artists previously scheduled to perform in 2020 will be provided with meaningful financial and artistic support as early as this fall.
Through the grant, all of 2020’s Uncharted artists will receive financial support to help them so they can continue to make progress on their work. They will also be invited to take advantage of compensated access to valuable rehearsal space and time at Greenwich House’s Renee Weiler Recital Hall. Additionally, resident artists will receive ongoing technical and marketing support. They will also collaborate with the GHMS staff to produce video and audio recordings to capture both their rehearsal and concert work.
Rachel Black, GHMS’s Director, says that the “Elebash Fund grant is a lifeline not only for our Uncharted program, but for the artists that were hardest hit in the wake of the pandemic. We are proud and excited to help to contribute to their first steps back to normal.”
