The 2011 Summer Concert Series at Richard Tucker Park is presented by the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District in partnership with the MTA Arts for Transit’s Music Under New York Program. Through these live performances at Richard Tucker Park, we celebrate New York City’s diversity of music and cultures and remember the great opera star, tenor Richard Tucker (1913-1975), who worked as a cantor before joining the Metropolitan Opera for a long and distinguished thirty year career.

Support for flowers and shrubs in Richard Tucker Park is provided by the family of Richard Tucker.
