Performing Free in Bryant Park

Apollo Run, Bryant Park

Free concerts are held in this Midtown park, just around rush hour. The 'Bryant Park After Work' series features mostly classical chamber music, with some indie groups thrown in.

The performances are free, and take place most weekdays, between 6 and 7pm. Above, the Brooklyn-based trio called Apollo Run. It was a treat to walk to Bryant Park and hear them play.

There are many young bands coming out of Brooklyn these days, most notably Bon Iver, which enjoyed rave reviews for their 2008 album 'For Emma, Forever Ago'.

Il se passe vraiment plein de chose au Bryant Park, une année j'avais vu un concert d'orgue classique

I love free outdoor concerts. They brighten up your day, plus it gives new bands a precious change to get more known and to have some performing experience.
