This Summer, Music on the Green


In collaboration with Carnegie Hall, Music on the Green is a free concert series inspired by Maya Lin’s Ghost Forest that brings artists from the Hall’s Ensemble Connect to reflect on the nature themes of the exhibition. Musicians from Carnegie’s Ensemble Connect––a two-year fellowship program for young musicians––will perform in Madison Square Park on Wednesday evenings in July and August, view the full line up here. Performances will take place in Maya Lin’s Ghost Forest, a public art exhibition exploring the impacts of climate change. 

The series continues the Hall’s 45-year tradition of bringing free concerts to New York City’s neighborhoods. This summer’s schedule includes more than 20 performances in 11 partner venues from June through August, showcasing renowned local artists performing a variety of musical genres—including classical, jazz, folk, Latin music—helping to reignite the arts and culture sector in communities across the city.
