Head to Pelham Bay Park's free concerts featuring Afro-Cuban Music, Funk with R&B, and Golden Oldies presented by the Bronx Arts Ensemble.
The bands performing in the parks are primarily led by Bronx Arts Ensemble (BAE) Teaching Artists who are part of BAE’s arts-in-education programs, serving over 100,000 students in Bronx public schools since the 1980s. The summer series of concerts provides audiences an opportunity to see those teaching artists as performers and leaders of their own professional bands.
The concerts are presented with support from Councilman James Vacca.
