American Symphony Orchestra Offers Live Chamber Music At Bryant Park & Herald Square
April 9, 2021
The American Symphony Orchestra will offer a free, nine-concert chamber music series to welcome spring at Manhattan's Bryant Park and 34th St. Herald Square Plaza from May 3-19.
The five different programs have been curated by ASO musicians, who will perform music ranging from 20th-century Mexican and all-American jazz composers to Afro-Cuban Batá drumming and classical works for horn quartet and woodwind trio. Featured artists include percussionist and composer Javier Diaz, saxophonist Roxy Coss, and oboist Toyin Spellman-Diaz. All concerts last for one hour and begin at 5:30 pm. Complete details are listed below.
Music-lovers will find a limited number of first-come, first-served chairs set up near the Bryant Park Fountain Terrace in front of the stage and at Herald Square to enjoy an after-work respite with live music. Artists and audience members will be required to follow current public health guidelines including wearing masks and social distancing.
