Jazz at Lincoln Center is proud to bring a rising star in the jazz world to Bryant Park: the 20 year old trumpeter Summer Camargo, playing with her Sextet.
Camargo studies at the Juilliard School, where she majors in Jazz Studies and is a part of the Jerome Greene Fellowship. Born and raised in Hollywood, Florida, Camargo has been a member of the prestigious Grammy Band, Next Generation Women in Jazz Combo, Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, and was named a National YoungArts Foundation Merit winner, and Honorable Mention in Jazz Trumpet, as well as a Merit winner in Jazz Composition. Summer was Downbeat Magazine’s Outstanding Student Jazz Performance Award recipient. At the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Essentially Ellington Festivals, she received Outstanding Trumpet Soloist Awards, and in 2018, Summer won the Ella Fitzgerald Outstanding Soloist Award and the Dr. J. Douglas White Student Composition Contest. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra recorded Camargo's first, original big band chart, Leap Froggin’. and performed as a guest artist for Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 'Wynton at 60' program. She was also honored to have the Jazz at Lincoln Orchestra perform her composition, Alalazoo, at the 2022 Jazz at Lincoln Center Gala.
Picnic Performances presented by Bank of America showcases live and in-person music, dance, and theater events produced in partnership with a diverse and storied lineup of New York City’s performing arts institutions. All performances are free to the public and designed to be enjoyed casually – no tickets required—with ample seating available and free picnic blankets to borrow.
Borrow a picnic blanket or chair – or bring your own. Bryant Park blankets and chairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Attendees may bring their own food or purchase from on-site food and beverage vendors near the Lawn. At most performances, attendees can purchase food from a rotating line-up of local NYC vendors curated by Hester Street Fair. At all performances, Stout NYC offers cheese and charcuterie boards as well as a selection of beer, wine, frosé, and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase.
Performances are cancelled when it is unsafe to be outdoors. In some cases, the Lawn may be too wet to open but the performance may continue. Follow @bryantparknyc for day-of event updates.
COVID-19 vaccinations and masks are not currently required but Bryant Park will continue to monitor and follow updated New York City and New York State COVID-19 guidelines throughout the summer as necessary.
