Great Music Inside and Out

by Gail Wein
May 31, 2017

June is "shoulder season" for classical performances. Many organizations are winding up their regular seasons, and some are bringing their wares out of doors to share their talents in our city's parks.

The New York Philharmonic leads the way, with a semi-staged production of Wagner's opera Das Rheingold, June 1, 3 and 6 at Lincoln Center. Our hometown band's season finale - and Alan Gilbert's last as music director - is on June 8, 9 and 10 at Lincoln Center. "A Concert for Unity" features the NY Philharmonic, joined by musicians from orchestras around the world, including China, Iran, Israel, Korea and Venezuela, performing Mahler's Symphony No. 7. June 8's program has some additional selections, and includes the luminary soloists Yo-Yo Ma and Wynton Marsalis, among others. Tickets available through Lincoln Center box office. A few days later, June 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18, the New York Philharmonic delivers its free annual parks concerts, with outdoor performances in parks in each of the five boroughs.

The Metropolitan Opera takes the show on the road, er.... grass, too. Their Summer Recital Series hits parks in every borough, with an evening of arias and duets from a variety of operas, performed by established and rising stars. Performances are on June 12, 14, 16, 17, 23, 24, and all are free.
Things are still cooking over at Carnegie Hall. The Met Opera Orchestra performs Schumann and Mahler on June 3, and Sibelius and Mahler on June 6; Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra appears on June 7, and there's a free neighborhood concert in a midtown park featuring the vocal ensemble Cantus on June 21.

Plus, it's festival time: Orchestra of St. Luke's explores the life and music of Franz Schubert in concerts performed by St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble at Morgan Library and Brooklyn Museum, June 7-25. And, Chelsea Music Festival happens in locales around Chelsea (of course) June 9-17. Performers include the Verona Quartet, the Lee Trio and many others. The programs marry music, cuisine and other disciplines.

And last, but far from least, Make Music New York happens on June 21. I am not exaggerating when I say that there are over 1,000 free performances in parks and on the street throughout all of the boroughs. More than a listening experience, it is an exercise in discovery and spontaneity.
