This is a story about the survival of the Arts.
NEW YORK SCHERZO is a feature documentary that follows the lives of three diverse classically trained musicians as they try to make it in New York City. They are passionate about their art but struggle to make a living, and face a crossroads where they must decide if they can sustain a career doing what they love.
There are countless documentaries about famous musicians, New York Scherzo is the story of the hustle and what happens before the fame and fortune.
