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.
This year’s series caps off the season-spanning celebration of the Orchestra’s 175 years of serving New York City by concluding The New World Initiative, the citywide project that explores Dvo?ák’s New World Symphony and its theme of home through performances and community outreach. Each of the concerts includes this masterpiece, which the Philharmonic premiered, and you can sing or play along with the Orchestra in the “Goin’ Home” theme from the Largo, conducted by Music Director Alan Gilbert!
There will be fireworks by Bay Fireworks following the performances in the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn.
Long Meadow Ballfields, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Enter at Grand Army Plaza, Prospect Park West at 9th Street, or Bartel-Pritchard Circle at the intersection of Prospect Park West, Prospect Park Southwest, and 15th Street.
