I feel like I’ve been doing a crappy job at event listings recently. I’ve been planning to bring back the daily “Free & Cheap Events” post for a while now, but keep getting sidetracked due to time constaints.
Unfortunately, that’s meant a lot of last-minute posts for neighborhood events, like this one…
There’s a free concert at the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park this evening at 7:30 pm.
Full details and the program are available at naumburgconcerts.org.
This is the 107th year of free concerts at the Bandshell. No tickets are issued, but 700 seats are provided on a first come first serve basis. Benches around the concert grounds are also available.
Tonight’s concert is from the The Knights, of whom the Los Angeles Times writes: “If we are to talk about the future of classical music in America, sooner or later, the Knights will come up…musicians with a modern sensibility, a wide repertory of works new and old, along with a crusading musical mission…”
Here’s a brief clip of the Knights performing at the Bandshell in 2009 (via YouTube user “fredgreentomatoes”):
