And My Favorite Kind of Memorial Day Music Event...Free!

This happens every year in Green-Wood Cemetery (hence the "Annual" part of the name), and it's always a hit, rain or shine. Happily, this year will be sans rain, if the predictions hold true. So check it out before a BBQ or after a brunch, or stop by and buy some of the available fare during a Memorial Day walk in Green-Wood. Nothing could be more appropriate. Again, thanks to Lost in Greenwood Heights on for the reminder.

The Green-Wood Historic Fund Proudly Presents OUR FREE Family Event

Memorial Day, Monday, May 26, 2008

Our annual concert will showcase the music of the ISO Symphonic Band, directed by Brian Wordsdale, conductor, featuring select compositions by Green-Wood Cemetery’s permanent residents Leonard Bernstein, Fred Ebb, Louis Moreau Gottschalk and other famous composers.

Bring a folding chair, a blanket and a picnic lunch. Cookout food, snacks and drinks, as well as books and souvenirs relating to the history of the Cemetery, will be for sale—and you can join the Green-Wood Historic Fund.

Admission is free and concert will be held rain or shine.

Our main entrance is located at 500 25th Street (on 5th Avenue) in Brooklyn. Via subway, take the R to the 25th Street station. Free parking is available, first come, first served.
