Tenth Intervention is equal parts presenting organization, music series and artist collective based in NY, presenting bold and progressive concerts that explore the intersection of performance, experiential art, and its potential to reflect social issues. Founded in 2012 by violinist Hajnal Pivnick and composer/pianist Dorian Wallace, the group forms with the purpose of creating new work in a highly collaborative environment.                                                

Since 1965, the Music of the Americas Concert Series has presented musical luminaries such as Plácido Domingo, Antonio Meneses, Mercedes Sosa, Egberto Gismonti, Hermeto Pascoal, Continuum Ensemble, Bobby Sanabria, Inti-Illimani, Cuarteto Latinoamericano, Jaime Laredo, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Tanya Tagaq, and many others.
