Now is the Month of Maying

Gail Wein

Spring has finally arrived to our fair city, and we have a bouquet of free concerts for you this month.

On May 11, 12 and 13, Onsite Opera presents Mozart's "The Secret Gardner" IN a garden: the Westside Community Garden on West 89th Street. Reserve a free ticket at Onsite Opera's website.

On May 19, NY Polyphony performs works by Bach and others at Church of St. Vincent Ferrer on the Upper East Side (presented by Miller Theatre). That same weekend, the annual Look and Listen Festival brings three exciting programs to three different neighborhoods, each connecting innovative aural and visual art: May 18 at Pratt Manhattan Gallery on 14th Street, May 19 at BRIC House in Brooklyn, and May 21 at Morningside Park.

On May 29, the New York Philharmonic delivers its long-standing tradition of free Memorial Day concerts at St. John The Divine. Mahler's majestic Symphony No. 4 is on the program; Alan Gilbert conducts. Another New York tradition, the Bang on A Can marathon, celebrates its 30th anniversary with 8 hours of new music on May 6 from 2-10 pm at Brooklyn Museum. It's free with Museum admission (which itself is free after 5 pm on Saturdays). And, not quite free, but pretty darned inexpensive is the Dover Quartet with clarinetist Richard Stoltzman at Town Hall on May 7, the final presentation of the year on the Peoples' Symphony Concert series.

There are some other notable performances in May that are not free, but well worth your while and your dollar. On May 16, the Orchestra of St. Luke's teams up with three young star soloists for the Young Concert Artists gala concert at Alice Tully Hall. The period instrument ensemble House of Time presents a program of music from Thomas Jefferson's music library, including Corelli and Abel on May 12 (in Washington Heights) and May 13 (Holy Trinity Lutheran Church), and the pianist and composer Jed Distler plays a program in tribute to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band on its 50th Anniversary at Bargemusic.

Looking ahead to June: Make Music New York, New York Philharmonic concerts in the Park, Naumburg Bandshell concerts (free, free and free). Details coming soon.
