The Lincoln Square Business Improvement District (BID) is excited to announce its continued partnership with the MTA Arts & Design’s Music Under New York (MTA MUSIC), which will bring free lunchtime entertainment to the Lincoln Square area– a neighborhood filled with a rich cultural and musical scene. The wildly popular annual Lunchtime Concert Series, now in its 12th year, will take place every Wednesday, rain or shine, beginning July 3 through August 28, from noon until 2:00 p.m. in Richard Tucker Park at Broadway and 66th Street. No matter one’s musical preference–Jazz, Rock or Opera–locals and visitors of all ages can hear it free all summer long. In between performances, music lovers can stretch and relax with free and gentle restorative yoga sessions by instructors from the West Side Y—a great way to relax during lunch. Whole Foods Market will sponsor free product samples during each performance.
