As a classical music lover I have had the pleasure of attending the prestigious Naumburg Concert series. The moumental Naumburg Band Shell is a stage that projects acoustic throughout Central Park. Thus, one will find an experience that connects the audience to performer. Moreover, the series is indicative to the spirit of the city with an impressive roster of performers (this year included Pablo Ziegler and Lara St. John in a tribute to the late Astor Piazzolla). I suggest attending the historic, and furthermore, FREE series! I look forward to the promising 2013 year and proudly support the organization in their fine mission.

Magic transpires on a warm summer night, brilliant classical music flowing over an appeciative audience of a thousand or more, exotic and joyful. Sit among the majestic elms, along the teak benches, snuggle in a blanket, hold someone you love. Being there is believing. Free concerts at the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park. Over 100 years now, an evening to remember. A gift from a family to all the people of New York and its vistors. Come. enjoy. I do.
