Free Summer Concerts at Richard Tucker Park - 2012 Season
Starting July 4 from noon until 2:00pm, and continuing every Wednesday through August 29, we will present our fifth season of Free Summer Concerts at Richard Tucker Park, Broadway and 66th Street! This popular concert series, which was featured in The New York Times, is sure to bring a taste of New York's underground music scene to Lincoln Square as we once again partner with the MTA's Arts for Transit program, Music Under New York.
This year, we'll kick off the series on Independence Day with "American Soundscapes" featuring the Yaz Band and William B. Johnson's Drumadics. P. J. Clarke's will be serving free sliders at this kick-off event, and will provide lemonade for all July concerts.
The full line-up is as follows:
July 18 – Take Me to the River
Walkabout Clearwater Chorus
August 15 - Opera in the Square
The 2012 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. For more information, please call 212.581.3774 or email email@example.com.
