The concerts are noon to 2 p.m. in Richard Tucker Park, the triangle between Broadway and Columbus Ave. at 66th St., and include FREE free restorative stretch sessions in between music sets for those looking for some additional lunch time relaxation.
Plus, WholeFoods is providing FREE cooling beverages for both music lovers and yoga enthusiasts.
There’s a different music theme each week, ranging from opera to jazz to Latin to klezmer, and there’s a small spot for dancing.
The park is named for the legendary opera star Richard Tucker, who performed across the street at the Metropolitan Opera in Lincoln Center.
Lincoln Center Out of Doors also is underway, with three weeks of FREE music and dance performances.
