MoMA's Summer Garden Music Series

The Museum of Modern Art established Summergarden in 1971. In keeping with MoMA’s history of presenting jazz and classical music in the Sculpture Garden, this year’s concert series once again welcomes the participation of The Juilliard School and Jazz at Lincoln Center. On July 27th, Jazz at Lincoln Center has selected an up-and-coming jazz ensemble whose concerts emphasize original works, who's had one world premiere.

Summergarden is free and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The Sculpture Garden may close if attendance reaches maximum capacity. Entrance to Summergarden is through the Sculpture Garden gate on West 54 Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues.

The Sculpture Garden opens at 7:00 p.m., and concerts start at 8:00 p.m. and run approximately one hour to 90 minutes. The Sculpture Garden closes at 10:00 p.m. In the event of rain, concerts will be held in The Agnes Gund Garden Lobby, and the Museum’s 54 Street entrance will open at 7:30 p.m. The exhibition galleries are closed during Summergarden. The Garden Bar sells gelato and seasonal sorbetto from Il Laboratorio del Gelato, with sweet and savory treats from Cafe 2. Prosecco, New York State wines, American craft beer, specialty coffees, and bottled water are also available for purchase. In the event of rain, refreshments are not available.

I have never been, but I assume there will be a line, so I am thinking we get there and gather at 6:15pm.

I look forward to a lovely evening with you ladies!

    Hello Ladies, I'm really sorry to do this, but I am no longer able to host this event. I unexpectedly need to fly out to California. I leave this Tuesday, and will be gone for about 2 weeks. I feel horrible about this, as I have been wanting to go to this event for a long time, and enjoy the night with you ladies. I'm really hoping that someone will step up to be point person (you just have to give out your number, and let people know where you are so people can gather), so that everyone can still enjoy this fun, free event. Feel free to use the comments section on here to coordinate as well. Once again, I am really sorry, and I look forward to getting back to NYC, and planning some fun events to round out the Summer.
