Summer Recital Series

The Met’s free concert series in New York City parks of all five boroughs returns Wednesday, June 22 at Central Park SummerStage, with an evening of favorite arias and duets. Rising soprano Angel Blue—who will make her Met debut in a future season—is joined by two young Met stars, tenor Ben Bliss and baritone Alexey Lavrov, and pianist Dan Saunders. The same artists will perform two nights later at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The July concerts feature soprano Michelle Bradley, tenor Kang Wang, and baritone Yunpeng Wang—all three members of the Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program—accompanied by Saunders.
