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 the city into a patchwork of picnickers and providing music lovers with an opportunity to hear the best classical music under the stars.

The performances begin at 8:00 p.m., and there will be fireworks by Bay Fireworks following the performances.

This year, Music Director Alan Gilbert conducts Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, with Principal Clarinet Anthony McGill as soloist; Richard Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben, featuring Concertmaster Frank Huang in concertmaster solos; and works by Wagner, Beethoven, and Rossini.
