Wednesday Night in Prospect Park: The New York Philharmonic Opens Its Summer Concert Series at the Middle Long Meadow

Tonight we had the pleasure of attending the kickoff of this summer's revived New York Philharmonic Summer Concert Series, joining a crowd of thousands at the Middle Long Meadow of Prospect Park to hear the Philharmonic, under the direction of Alan Gilbert, sublimely play Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony and Respighi's tone poems Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome, followed by fireworks.
We're grateful we got to hear the Philharmonic in such an idyllic setting on such a beautiful summer night.
