Summer Recital Series

The Met’s popular concert series in New York City parks in all five boroughs kicks off on Monday, June 11, at SummerStage in Central Park, with an evening of arias and duets from a variety of operas. The first two recitals feature rising stars Latonia Moore, Mario Chang, and Joshua Hopkins. The four subsequent recitals showcase three exciting young artists—Gabriella Reyes de Ramírez, Gerard Schneider, and Adrian Timpau. Dan Saunders will be at the piano to accompany each performance.

Recitals are free. | CityParks Foundation Attendance FAQs
