Celebrate the unofficial start of summer at Green-Wood Cemetery’s 20th annual Memorial Day concert. Whether seated upfront or relaxing on a blanket among Green-Wood’s rolling hills, you’ll listen to the ISO Symphonic Band and Orchestra – a wind, brass, and percussion ensemble comprising some of the most talented student musicians in the New York metro area, led by music director and conductor Brian P. Worsdale. The works of many of Green-Wood’s “permanent residents,” including Fred Ebb, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and Paul Jabara, will be played throughout the afternoon. This year’s concert will include a special program to celebrate the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein, the famed composer and conductor of the New York Philharmonic who created such timeless works as West Side Story and On the Town, among others.
Visitors are invited to bring a blanket and enjoy this outdoor performance of patriotic favorites.
The concert is free, but RSVPs are strongly recommended. To RSVP for the concert, visit
