Bryant Park Picnic Performances: American Symphony Orchestra – Beyond the Hall

September 6, 7 pm10 pm.
Free
Bryant Park

For the third consecutive year, the American Symphony Orchestra debuts its season at Bryant Park. This year, the orchestra presents Beyond the Hall, a program exploring music in a context different from the usual concert setting. From the dance salon (Florence Price’s Suite of Dances) to the cabaret (Weill’s Threepenny Opera) and the opera stage (Joplin’s Treemonisha), from the musical hall (Bernstein’s On the Town) to the silver screen (Herrmann’s Psycho), the selections included here examine the complex and dramatic role that music has played across venues, genres or modes of expression.

Bryant Park Picnic Performances presented by Bank of America is a free outdoor festival (May 31 – September 13) that welcomes all New Yorkers to experience the city’s vibrant arts and culture. The series provides a platform for extraordinary artists and serves as a vital outdoor venue for a wide array of New York’s cultural institutions.

Location:

6th Avenue between 40th and 42nd Street
