The New York Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks

The New York Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer, have become an iconic New York summer experience since they began in 1965, transforming parks throughout New York into a patchwork of picnickers and providing music lovers with an opportunity to hear the best classical music under the stars. This summer, Music Director Alan Gilbert leads four free outdoor concerts, including a program spotlighting Principal Cello Carter Brey, and the New York Philharmonic Brass gives a Free Indoor Concert at the College of Staten Island, CUNY.

The concert starts at 8 PM.

Enter at 193rd Street, near 81st Avenue or Union Turnpike. Concert site is at 193rd Street Field

Train take E/F trains stop at Kew Gardens and take bus Q46

    Thank you to Daniel for fielding all those phone calls so that we could all find our way over to this very nice gathering, with beautiful music, great conversation, and an amazing backdrop of a sunset reflected in those clouds that only shared a handful of drops on us. I can't wait to see everyone's photos!

    It would be canceled if it were forecast a lot of rain, but as of now (445PM) it looks pretty good in terms of a "go" for the concert.

    In one group I belong to, they have a flag. I would think that something could be devised for such things as the Philharmonic on Thursday.

    Look at the map, entrance at field 3 we should be in the middle in the park. I'll be looking for a good spot. Please bring a compact chair it would be helpful or lay in the grass (beach blanket) and have a picnic.
