'Party Up' with NYC Parks and the Black Rock Coalition Orchestra as we celebrate the artistry of Prince!

In celebration of what would have been Prince’s 59th birthday, The Black Rock Coalition Orchestra dips into the vault for IT’S GONNA BE A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT, a rousing remembrance under the musical direction of lifetime fan and rock-royalty-in-her-own-right, Tamar-kali. This bittersweet reflection, paced out by show-stopping bandleader Jerome Jordan, conjures B-sides, bootlegs and bonuses from over 11 album eras. With a Supergroup-backing band (including Cassandra O’Neal from the New Power Generation, Sylvia Black of Betty Black, Sharief of Sharief in Burgundy, and Mark Robohm), a parade of top-notch vocalists (such as Corey Glover of Living Colour, Gordon Voidwell of WILLS, and Doron Flake of Model Decoy), and a full slate of special guests, this soul-satisfying, booty-shaking performance will remind us all of what music can do when the people who make it are free to create outside the lines.

The concert will be followed by a screening of "Purple Rain". The film tells the story of a young musician tormented by an abusive home, a rival singer, a burgeoning romance, and his disgruntled band, as his star begins to rise. "Purple Rain" was Prince's acting debut and features contains extended concert sequences.

The concert begins at 7:00 p.m. The film starts at 8:30 p.m.

Know Before You Go
This film features explicit content and is rated R. You should come before 7:30 p.m. to get your spot for the movie. Please bring your own picnic blanket or chair. Food is OK, but no alcohol or smoking is permitted. All are welcome!

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!

SeaGlass Carousel at The Battery is excited to announce Live at SeaGlass Music Festival 2017, a free outdoor music festival on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24.

Created by NY Carousel Entertainment, the operators of SeaGlass, and curated by bassist/composer Michael Bates, and drummer/composer Rob Garcia, Live at SeaGlass brings together great bands, original music, the magical SeaGlass Carousel all at The Battery, the exquisite park overlooking the New York harbor.

Performer/Magician, Todd Robins will be emceeing the festival and SeaGlass Carousel riders will have the unique experience of riding SeaGlass to beautiful live music.

Live at SeaGlass Music Festival - Saturday, June 24, 2017
Music by young people - Brooklyn Youth Music Project: Full orchestra and two jazz ensembles, plus youth rock band.

Four critically acclaimed bands:

5:00 p.m. – YeraSon
YeraSon, lead by Grammy-winning Violinist Yrving Yeras, is a New York based Cuban Orquesta Charanga with a multinational flair. YeraSon Orquesta Charanga electrifies with old-school Cuban music with a distinctly modern New York twist. The bands unique sound is at once elegant and energetic with a contagious rhythm that attracts dancing and listening crowds alike. YeraSon is a treat for both the ears and the feet!

6:15 p.m. - Mamie Minch & Tamar Korn
Mamie Minch is one of the youngest old-school blues guitarists and singers you've heard. She sings and plays songs of her own devising that sound like they've been stored in her old National guitar for decades. Raised on the music of John Hurt, Rev. Davis and Memphis Minnie, she can sometimes sound like her predecessors, but don't mistake her for a revivalist- she is most definitely a product of her own time.

7:30 p.m. - Banda de los Muertos
A Mexican Brass Band from Brooklyn led by Oscar Noriega and Jacob Garchik. This band attracts audiences made up of brass aficionados and Mexican immigrants – as well as kudos from the mother of all Mexican Brass Bands: Banda el Recodo.

8:45 p.m. - Soul Understated
Led by singer/songwriter Mavis ‘SWAN’ Poole and the powerful yet melodic drummer Jeremy ‘BEAN’ Clemons, Soul Understated is one of the rarest discoveries in music since Motown. The influences on their music are overwhelming and pleasurable all at once. With elements from EWF to Ella Fitzgerald, Donny Hathaway to Curtis Mayfield, and Sarah Vaughn to Count Basie, and even Hip-hop infused, their music spans across all genres.
