New York Philharmonic @ Cunningham Park

Thurday, July 15– Cunningham Park, Queens
“Enjoy a program conducted by Andrey Boreyko and featuring works by Tchaikovsky, Bernstein, and Prokofiev.”

Every summer, my mother and I watch a free outdoor performance by the New York Philharmonic, often accompanied by fireworks. It’s pretty convenient, since Cunningham Park is only fifteen minutes away from home. This year’s repertoire included Tchaikovsky’s Polonaise from Eugene Onegin, Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, and selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. I enjoyed the latter the most, especially this piece. It’s very dramatic and powerful, as it was written for a ballet. Now I feel a little motivated to start playing viola again – I just need to get my broken strings replaced. : )
