|New York Philharmonic summer concert|
The New York Philharmonic celebrated its 50th anniversary summer program in June. This program presents free concerts in each borough of New York City. The concerts are held in the parks except for Staten Island which is held indoors.
We attended one of the summer concerts on a beautiful June evening. Music enthusiasts arrived early lugging their chairs and blankets to get their prime viewing spots. The program featured a medley of songs from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story.
The concert lasted about an hour. At its conclusion, fireworks were launched capping a wonderful evening under the stars.
This was a maiden New York Philharmonic concert for us and hopefully we would get to attend more of these summer events in the future. Thank you NY Philharmonic for a wonderful gift!
