The Met’s popular concert series in New York City parks in all five boroughs kicks off on Monday, June 10, at SummerStage in Central Park, with an evening of arias and duets from a variety of operas. The first two recitals feature audience favorites baritone Nathan Gunn, tenor Ben Bliss, and soprano Ying Fang, accompanied on piano by Dan Saunders. The four subsequent recitals showcase three exciting young artists—soprano Leah Hawkins, tenor Mario Bahg, and baritone Joseph Lim—with Dimitri Dover on piano.

 

 

The Summer Recital Series is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and in collaboration with the Department of Parks and Recreation.

 

Major funding has also been provided by The Elizabeth B. McGraw Foundation, in honor of Mrs. McGraw.
