Summertime Concerts Return to Lincoln Square; Check Out the Lineup!


Summer afternoon concerts are coming back to Lincoln Square! Partnering for another season with the MTA Arts & Design’s Music Under New York (MTA MUSIC), the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District (BID) is bringing free entertainment to the neighborhood with the wildly popular, annual Lunchtime Concert Series.

Now in its 12th year, the concerts will take place every Wednesday, rain or shine, beginning July 3 through August 28, from noon until 2:00pm in Richard Tucker Park at Broadway and 66th Street. The series will feature a wide range of music genres, from global funk to jazz to alternative rock!

Performers new to the lineup this year include: Jake Kulak & the Low Down for some rock & blues; Hasta La Zeta for some “global groove” music; Digonek Street Band with funky brass tunes; Dawn Drake with her worldbeat meets funk ensemble, Zapote; and more! Returning acts include the The Meetles, SisterMonk, The L Train Brass Band, and more; and back by popular demand, Opera Collective will perform two full sets to close out the series.

In between performances, music lovers can stretch and relax with free and gentle restorative yoga sessions by instructors from the West Side Y–a great way to relax during lunch. Whole Foods Market will also sponsor free product samples during each performance with 88 Acres, GoodPop, and Rebbl. Click here to view the series schedule and find out what bands are playing.

The 2019 Lunchtime Concert Series is sponsored by TD Bank – America’s Most Convenient Bank. Through these live performances at Richard Tucker Park, Lincoln Square celebrates New York City’s incredible diversity of music and cultures, and the great opera star, tenor Richard Tucker (1913-1975).
