Calling all blankets and picnic baskets! The Riverside Clay Tennis Association is once again hosting its series of sunset concerts on the tennis lawn overlooking the Hudson River at 97th Street.
This week’s performer: Efendi. Efendi are back, headed by Scott Wilson playing his unique “Baglama Hydra”—a combination oud, saz, and bouzouki—perform music from Turkey, Armenia, Israel, and Greece. Mr. Wilson always shows up with a Belly Dancer, who charms the young and old alike. Great fun for the kids.
The Series celebrates our fabulous park and represents the rich cultural diversity of the Upper West Side. Each concert begins at 7:00 p.m. and continues through shades of orange, red and purple, ending around 9:00 p.m. Bring your picnic basket and blanket and join us. Stick around afterward and watch the fireflies rise up out of the lawn and the stars speckle the sky.
In the event of inclement weather, call (212) 978-0277, to see whether a concert has been postponed.
