Brooklyn Bridge Park


Join us on Thursday, September 16 at 6:00pm for a free chamber music concert at Pier 3 Greenway Terrace in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

As the sun sets over the New York City skyline, a string quartet of ASO musicians invites you to reflect on our current journey of renewal and reawakening. This program includes pieces by all-American composers including Duke Ellington, George Walker and William Grant Still, with contemporary works by Gabriela Lena Frank and Carlos Simon.

Advanced RSVP encouraged. Click here to register. We will do our utmost to accept walk ups as space allows. Artists, staff, and audience members will be required to follow all current COVID-19 guidelines.


The ASO’s Chamber Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
