memorial day concertgoers

Green-Wood’s much-loved Memorial Day concert returns for its 23rd year! Bring a blanket, picnic, and all your friends to join us for this beloved kick-off to summer. We welcome back the talented high-school musicians of the ISO at Third Street Symphonic Band, led by music director Paul Corn and hosted by guest conductor Brian P. Worsdale.

Each year we feature works that commemorate those who served in the armed forces throughout our nation’s history, while also highlighting music by some of Green-Wood’s permanent residents, including James Weldon Johnson, Fred Ebb, and Leonard Bernstein. This year’s repertoire will also include works by a diverse range of contemporary composers.

Price: Free. Registration recommended.
