Concert in the Park

Jazz in the Garden, where you sit in the sculpture garden and listen to live jazz while drinking sangria and having a picnic, was one of my favorite activities in D.C. and I was very sad to leave it behind when I moved to New York. I was pleasantly surprised then when my co-worker invited me to Concerts in the Park at Central Park, where the New York Philharmonic was performing.

The performance was beautiful, and it was different from Jazz in the Garden in two truly remarkable ways:
1. Everyone was actually quiet so they could listen to the music, and
2. There were fireworks!!!

Take note, D.C., take note...

Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4,
Respighi's Fountains of Rome, and
Respighi's Pines of Rome
