I will bring some light snacks for all, but please bring dinner if you want substantive food. We are meeting at 7pm if you want to come early and relax and eat your own dinner, 7:30 for the concert itself. Please bring a sheet or chair to sit on!

See you!

Naumberg Bandshell, on the Concert Ground in Central Park - mid park, enter at 72nd street on either side of the park - its right near the Central Park Summerstage

Arrive early, find a spot, bring a picnic! Bring your own blankets. They do have chairs, but they often get used up.

We will be in the grassy area on a small hill about 300 hundred feet BEHIND the area of the chairs, near a large statue about 100 ft away. It’s on a very small hill, behind a small railing/fence.

Here is a google map link to the location of the concert at the Bandshell.
