Memorial Day Concert

May 29, 2017, 2:30pm5:00pm


It’s a NYC favorite, now in its nineteenth year! Bring a blanket and enjoy this free early summer performance. The concert features the ISO Symphonic Band, founded in 1995 to sponsor talented students throughout New York City and led by the band’s inimitable founder and conductor Brian P. Worsdale. Each year we feature the works of Green-Wood’s permanent residents Fred Ebb, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Leonard Bernstein, and many others. Enjoy the beautiful landscape with your fellow New Yorkers, as well local vendors selling food and drink throughout the day.

The concert is free, but RSVPS are recommended. Please make an optional donation with your reservation, to help Green-Wood continue to offer these events free of charge.

Two special tours, one walking and one trolley, begin immediately after the concert, featuring monuments and memorials with veteran connections.
