welcome to



extraordinary classical music performances

Dear Roosevelt Island Friends,


It is easy to lose perspective during this pandemic, which is keeping many of us at home, and has thrown many of our usual structures into disarray. We at Roosevelt Island Concerts want to wish you, our beloved audience, supporters, and patrons, health and well-being during these trying times, and a healthy and prosperous 2021. 


Ralph has put together a blog: a playlist of music that has been helpful for him to listen to at this time, along with his own thoughts about this music. Click HERE to check it out; and stay tuned for more installments in the coming weeks, along with a special streamed performance by Iris and Ralph of Duos by Schulhoff and Ravel. We hope this brings some light in these dark times.
