memorial day concertgoers

Unfortunately, the 2024 concert has been canceled due to severe weather. We look forward to welcoming you next year!

Green-Wood’s much-loved Memorial Day concert returns for its 24th 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 Symphonic Band at Third Street, 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.
