NEW YORK, March 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- GRAMMY and Emmy Award-winning musician, singer, composer, legendary live performer, and multi-platinum best-selling artist, Harry Connick Jr., continues to thrill audiences around the world -- in music, film, television, and Broadway – and today he unveils his latest project, The Neutral Ground, a brand-new, socially-immersive experience that will bring everyone into the metaverse and into Harry's world.
The name, The Neutral Ground, comes from the grassy divides (medians) where Harry would hang out as a kid. In New Orleans, these medians are called "neutral grounds." In the metaverse, The Neutral Ground is a community created and architected by Harry himself. It's designed as a place to come together to connect, engage and interact around some of his passions, including music, food, and family.
One of the first artists of his stature to lean into building new kinds of community in the metaverse, Harry cements his status as a visionary as he breaks the mold on how artists can create immersive experiences and interact with their communities while bringing community members closer to each other.
Today, registration for this ground-breaking community experience opens up to everyone, and Harry is excited to introduce Piano Party, the first of many projects and experiences to come on The Neutral Ground. He stopped by TODAY with Hoda & Jenna live from New Orleans this morning to exclusively announce The Neutral Ground and introduce Hoda & Jenna to his new "world" with a preview Piano Party lesson – watch here.
"The Neutral Ground is a place for all of us to hang out and have a good time. Music, food, shows, hangouts... it's gonna be a lot of fun," said Harry Connick Jr. "I can't wait to go on this adventure with everyone. There's still a lot to figure out in this new world, and I'm excited about all of the possibilities. It's been a roller coaster the last couple of years. I'm ready to go to a place where the music never stops, and the party's just getting started. The new Piano Party course is the first of a lot more to come. Can't wait to see y'all on The Neutral Ground."
