Since 1905, the Naumburg Orchestral Concerts has presented free, outdoor classical music concerts to New Yorkers and visitors eager to experience an evening of musical enrichment.
Named after Elkan Naumburg, who donated the Naumburg Bandshell to New York City in 1923, the series seeks to stimulate and encourage new audiences for classical music in the serene setting of Central Park.
It's the oldest concert series of its kind in the entire United States and currently features some promising new talent of young composers and conductors that it hopes to promote and develop.
