 Memorial Day Concert at Green-Wood Cemetery
May 27th, 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Bring a blanket to sit on, relax, and enjoy the free performance as ISO Symphonic Band founder and conductor Brian P. Worsdale leads the band--a sixty-two-piece wind, brass, and percussion ensemble--through patriotic songs, a tribute to Glenn Miller, and music by some of Green-Wood’s "permanent residents": Broadway lyricist Fred Ebb, nineteenth-century composer and pianist Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Leonard Bernstein, singer-songwriter Paul Jabara, and others. Also performing will be guest vocalist and program co-host Maggie Worsdale

Food and refreshments will be available to purchase.

Even though the concert is free, you need to register. Use the Ticket Information box on the registration page. 

Meet inside the main gain at 25th Street at 5th Avenue. To get there, take the "R" train to 25th Street (Brooklyn) and walk up the hill one block and into Green-wood Cemetery.

Free parking is available.

When the concert ends, experience a special trolley mini-tour of the highlights of Greenwood--such as DeWitt Clinton’s bronze statue, Battle Hill, and the Civil War Soldiers’ Lot--led by Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman.

The cost of the tour is $5 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund and $10 for non-members. Seating is limited, so reservations are recommended.
