Center Sessions

“Center Sessions” is a multi-media project of the Center for the Arts of Homer that chronicles exemplary bands and musicians from throughout the Central New York region and beyond.

Center Sessions provides artists the opportunity to present themselves and their work on a contemporary platform.

Performed in a relatively informal context, and within non-traditional spaces at the Center for the Arts – these performances are recorded live by professional audio and video engineers and released via social media and web properties as a means to introduce the world, digitally, to musicians of the Central New York region and beyond. These recorded performances are also digitally archived as an historic record. Featuring musicians and bands of various genres, Center Sessions is made possible through a decentralization grant administered by CNY ARTS by the New York State Council on the Arts that highlights the impeccable, and diverse musical talent that performs at the Center for the Arts of Homer.
