Civic Alliances Series
PAC NYC strives to build meaningful relationships with community organizations and institutional stakeholders across all five boroughs and throughout the greater New York City metropolitan area and through dynamic relationships with local and international partners.

Following our November series Loops, Licks, and Lyrics featuring solo beatboxers and loopers, we are excited to share December Duos, an eclectic lineup of musical duos across the genres of classical, Hip Hop, and world/Folk music. This series celebrates the great tradition of duos; a collaboration between two artists whose talents and chemistry meld together musically. From the father and son duo of Squala Orphan and Hetep BarBoy trading rhymes to the partner duo of Morley Shanti and Chris Bruce melding voice and guitar, each duo in this series brings their unique magic to the PAC NYC Lobby Stage.
