A beloved New York City summer tradition, New York Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks returns for its 47th season of FREE outdoor concerts in parks in each borough. The first concert is Wednesday, July 11th on the Great Lawn of Central Park. New York Philharmonic Music Director Alan Gilbert will lead the orchestra in a program including Respighi’s “Fountains of Rome” and “Pines of Rome” and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, a crowd-pleasing favorite that ends with a fireworks show.
