Outdoors, Indoors, All Around the Town

It’s summertime in New York, and that means an onslaught of outdoor activities.

The densest concentration of outdoor concerts, by far, is on June 21, when Make Music New York brings over 1000 free performances (not a typo) to spots in all five boroughs. You can plot out a schedule for yourself with info from MMNY’s website, or just pick an area, wander around and spontaneously discover live music of a vast variety of genres for yourself. Free.

There’s also a slew of free concerts in parks across the city, all summer long. Highlights include the New York Philharmonic on June 12, 13, 14 and 15, recitals by up-and-coming singers from the Metropolitan Opera on June 11, 13, 27 and 29, New York City Opera performing an hour-long rendition of Madame Butterfly on June 13. Two more notable outdoor orchestra concerts are Ensemble LPR in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the nightclub Le Poisson Rouge on June 12, and the venerable Orpheus Chamber Orchestra on June 26.

Indoors, an annual series rich with musical offerings is Chelsea Music Festival. This year (June 8 -16) the festival focuses on the music and legacy of JS Bach on the 333 anniversary of his birth, and features a marathon concert of the master’s works lasting 333 minutes on June 9. Other programs feature music by Aaron Jay Kernis (the festival’s composer-in-residence) among others, with performances by the cellist Matt Haimovitz, Barkada Saxophone Quartet, and many other artists. Tickets on sale at the festival’s website.

Orchestra of St. Luke’s has finished its concert regular season, but continues making chamber music in its Facets of Brahms Festival June 5 – 24 at Merkin Concert Hall, Morgan Library and Museum, and Brooklyn Museum. Tickets via OSL’s website.

On Sunday mornings, Gather NYC hosts concerts, coffee and conversation at Subculture. Percussionist Shane Shanahan performs on June 3 and cellist Mike Block on June 10. Tickets via Subculture’s website.

Plenty more where that came from. I’ll look forward to seeing you at concerts all around town!
