Since 1905, the Naumburg Orchestral Concerts has presented free, outdoor classical music concerts to New Yorkers of all walks of life. The series seeks to stimulate and encourage new and expanded audiences for classical music in the informal and beautiful setting of Central Park. It is the oldest continuous free outdoor western classical music concert series in the world. The Naumburg Orchestral Concerts is a non-profit organization managed by a volunteer board of trustees; contributions towards its programs are fully tax-deductible.
While the Naumburg Bandshell is closed for repairs, ALL of our concerts will be in Temple Emanu-El, at Fifth Avenue and 65th Street. We shall be part of the Streicker Center series of distinguished events. Please note that not all our concerts are on Tuesdays this season.These FREE events ALL require tickets, available online (see links in the details of each concert below) or by registering with a form at the door. Allow extra time for tickets and for a security check when arriving for the concerts. Doors at the Temple open at 6:15 PM.
