Join the Fort Tryon Park Trust, New York City Parks & Recreation and the Michels family in celebrating the late Council Member Stan Michels at the fifth annual memorial jazz concert performed by local impresario Marjorie Eliot and her ensemble. The jazz is hot and the setting is cool, underneath the majestic elms on the promenade alongside the beautiful Heather Garden and overlooking the Hudson River.

Stan Michels represented northern Manhattan in the City Council for 24 years from 1978 through 2001. He was chair of the Committee on Environmental Protection, and his legislative record was notable for his work fighting on behalf of tenants, for the expansion of the city’s recycling program, for the protection of our water supply and cleaner air, and against childhood lead poisoning, smoking in public places and unreasonable noise. He also was a steadfast advocate for parks, allocating over $50 million for park improvements in Washington Heights, Inwood and Harlem, including virtually every playground in his district. The promenade where this concert is being held was named in his honor shortly before he passed away on August 1, 2008.

We hope you can be with us to remember Stan on the fifth anniversary of his passing.

This program will be accessible to people with disabilities.

Associated Press called London-based singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas Is Your Love Big Enough? “not just one of the year’s best debuts, but one of the year’s best albums.” Her live show has been equally lauded, with the Los Angeles Times calling her “a natural talent with boundless potential whose charisma is matched only by her musical prowess.” The daughter of a Greek father and a Jamaican mother, La Havas fell in love with her parents’ favorite music as a child and cites artists like Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Mary J. Blige as influences. This year, La Havas has performed around the world on sold-out tours and on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with David Letterman, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She has also been embraced by many musical heroes, including Prince, Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, Alicia Keys, Bon Iver, and Erykah Badu.

Often rocking out with her ukulele in front of her dynamic, versatile band, LP has a voice that is instantly ear-catching, a natural instrument of power and grace. Fueled by a contagious, pure love of performing, LP’s stage presence is inherently powerful with a free-flowing, infectious confidence honed through her years of touring. LP was drawn heavily to transformational artists, those who blended mystique with the rare ability to make an instant connection with listeners, both as performers and writers. Her live performances gracefully evolved during bouts of intense touring, and her songwriting skills developed profoundly. Her debut album will be released in 2013 and she hopes it will be worthy of her teachers and will also satisfy her own creative expectations.

First introduced by a mutual friend, vocalist Coco O., and multi-instrumentalist/producer Robin Hannibal had immediate chemistry. Dubbing themselves Quadron, the two began making waves with the Motown-inspired single, “Slippin’” making them a darling among music critics. Recognizing the tremendous talent of the duo, New York Magazine, named their self-titled 2009 album as one of the “Top Ten Best” of the year. While Coco’s credits Lauryn Hill and Sade as being at the center of her formative music years, Robin’s flair for layering the intricacies of chord progressions, composition, and instrumentation come from his love for musical greats such as Ennio Morricone and Charles Stepney. Their newest single, “Hey Love” was released in March 2013 and features a pop-friendly tapestry of busy beats and pounding piano.

Whether at the turntables, or in studio behind the boards, DJ Center soul-travels, navigating audiences with a crate of musical goods from around the globe, while echoing a New York state of mind. Having rocked cities as far and wide as Los Angeles to Barcelona, DJ Center’s signature style remains soulful, feel-good music. Always aiming to break new tunes and celebrate forgotten gems, a DJ Center set is synonymous with the finest of selections: whether he is doing music supervision for Gucci, recording radio sessions for Giant Step, or keeping party goers on their feet until the wee hours.

Watch a movie in the great outdoors! Join us for our citywide Summer Movie Series featuring family-friendly films through August. Admission is free! Please feel free to bring your own snacks and comfy chairs or blankets, as a limited number of chairs will be available.

In Brave, Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.
