Break out your dancing shoes and close out your Monday with a bang!

Later tonight, Asphalt Orchestra, the guerilla marching band known for putting on spirited and dynamic performances in Lincoln Center Plaza and other famous public spaces around New York City, will perform on the High Line. According to the New York Times, the Asphalt Orchestra is “an iconoclastic 12-piece marching band… part parade spectacle, part halftime show and part cutting-edge contemporary music concert.”

The group will enter the High Line near 16th Street at 6:30 PM and perform near the 10th Avenue Square.

The show is presented by Friends of the High Line & Lincoln Center Out of Doors.

Asphalt Orchestra, a project of Bang on a Can, is co-directed by Ken Thomson and Jessica Schmitz. Asphalt Orchestra is choreographed by Susan Marshall and Mark DeChiazza and dressed by Elizabeth Hope Clancy.

The creation of Asphalt Orchestra was made possible by a generous grant from the Rockefeller Foundation NYC Cultural Innovation Fund and support from Lincoln Center for Lincoln Center Out of Doors. Lincoln Center Out of Doors is sponsored by Bloomberg and PepsiCo.
