Hey New York!

Summer may be over, but you can always see some of our brightest moments in our 2018 SummerStage photo gallery!

We’ll keep the tunes flowing this fall at our final free show of the season with Grammy-winning world music star Angelique Kidjo on Thursday, September 27 in Central Park. Kidjo will be performing her highly anticipated cover album of the Talking Heads’ Remain in Light. Joining her is the Resistance Revival Chorus, a collective of more than 60 women who perform protest songs in the spirit of resistance and joy.

Don’t miss our last two benefit shows of the season in Central Park: producer and multi-instrumentalist Blood Orange, vocalist Dev Hynes’s most recent project, performs on September 26; and Elsie Fest, a celebration of the stage and screen, returns with guest stars Darren CrissSutton Foster, and Rufus Wainwright on October 7. Tickets are still available for both shows.

See you in the park!
