FREE FRIDAY CONCERTS at New York Historical Society

This event is part of the New-York Historical Society's spring 2014 Free Fridays programs, sponsored by Bank of America. Entrance to the concert series is free during the Museum's Pay-as-you-wish Friday Nights (6 – 8 pm). No advanced reservations. Tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 6 pm. New-York Historical Society members receive priority.

Location: The Robert H. Smith Auditorium at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024

CONCERTS: Icons and Influences

Featuring George Cables, Dezron Douglas, Victor Lewis.

Speaker Bio: George Cables, a celebrated jazz pianist and major voice in modern jazz, is currently performing and recording as a soloist, with trio and larger ensembles, and as a clinician in college jazz programs. He has performed and recorded with some of the greatest jazz musicians of our time, including Joe Henderson, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, and Dizzy Gillespie. This will be Mr. Cables’ first appearance at New-York Historical. His Jazz at Lincoln Center performances often sell out.

The distribution of free tickets is on a first-come first-serve basis. It usually sells out quickly so they advise to be there at 5 p.m. The location is at the corner of 77th Street and Central Park West. There will be a line on the right hand side after you enter the lobby that will be for non-members. We should line up there. Everyone can only pick up one extra ticket. So if you can please be there at 5 p.m. If not send your friend to be there to pick up your ticket. I will pick up one extra ticket and the rest of us who can be there at 5 would be able to pick up an extra one in case others will be late.

    Hello guys, Since this will be my first time to show up in your meetings , please give me some general clues . is it going to be a real meeting of Persian culture lovers or just we may meet each other there? :( I hope it is going to be a good introductory one .

    Where can I meet anyone of this meetup at the middle of this concert/park ?

    hope to see you

      Hi Rasha: We have a mix of events where you can spend time with Persian culture lovers. As for tomorrow, since this is a concert we are going to meet inside to pick up our tickets and then go to see the concert. The event is not in the park. It's inside the New-York historical society (see the address above). I am also hoping this to be a good introductory event. We have to find each other. It would help if you could post a picture of yours... If you like events to mix and mingle with other Persian enthusiasts, the best way is to attend our dinner parties (there will be one after this meetup). But I am sure tomorrow will be a fun event. Looking forward to seeing you then. Please check the description tomorrow for the exact location to meet inside.
