Annual Memorial Day Concert
Monday, May 30, 2016, 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Bring a blanket and enjoy this free early summer performance – a NYC favorite! 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 a free event, but please register below so that we can gauge response. We encourage you to consider making an optional donation with your reservation, to ensure our ability to continue to offer these events free of charge.
