East Bank Music is a curated music series offered by the Church of the Ascension in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

The Church of the Ascension strives to be a place of engagement for the arts and all else that nurtures life, vibrancy, and justness. Under the Church’s generous auspices, East Bank Music aims to enrich the wider community of Greenpoint by representing the musical genres thriving in the neighborhood while offering a performance and rehearsal space for independent musical artists. The hope is to bring together members of the Church, Greenpoint residents, and audiences from across the city.

Weeknight concerts focus on experimental genres and new sounds from the contemporary folk, jazz, and classical worlds while Sunday afternoon community concerts highlight mainstays of the classical repertoire. A dedication to original composition and interpretation unites the wide array of performers presented as part of the series.

East Bank Music and the Church of the Ascension support local businesses, and all are welcome. All shows are $10 suggested donation. Concerts are curated by Julia Den Boer and Jude Webre, for submissions and information email music at

***  The church is currently in a deal for a full renovation. The fact that we are unclear about the start and finish dates of work has made it impossible to plan a new series at this point.  Below you will see info for the occasional upcoming concert though no full season.
