Poe Park Visitor Center Presents: The Bardekova Ensemble’s Virtual Premiere Concert 

The Bardekova Ensemble has performed at Poe Park in the Bronx for the last eight summers, but this year's summer concert was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. In this special virtual performance for Parks@Home, the Bardekova Ensemble performs classical chamber music as well as the music of Miles Davis and Celia Cruz.

The Bardekova Ensemble was founded by Ellen Bardekoff, who has a post-graduate diploma from the Juilliard School and who has played with members of the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera. Adam Ray, who is the son of Michael Ray, trumpeter with Kool and the Gang, is making his debut with the group this season.
