Classical Island


The NY Phil cancelled its summer season of music in the parks, but you can still hear orchestral works outdoors. Rite of Summer is the first-ever contemporary classical music festival on Governors Island and it kicks off today with 40 musicians performing Terry Riley’s minimalist classic, “In C,” led by keyboardist/conductor/musical impresario Jed Distler. The free performances begin at 1 and 3pm.
