Concerted efforts to make this weekend musical
July 12, 2013 by Mark
The New York Philharmonic Brass will be performing a free concert at the College of Staten Island this weekend as part of its New York Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks program. The campus is close by the Todt Hill neighborhood of Staten Island.
This series, which is produced by Didi and Oscar Schafer, began in 1965 and has since become a fixture of New York City summers.
The New York Philharmonic is one of the ‘Big Five’ orchestras in America – the others being the primary symphony groups from Cleveland, Chicago, philadelphia, and Boston. It was founded in 1842 by Ureli Corelli Hill, its first conductor, and supported by the famous composer William Vincent Wallace. The group is now one of the most famous orchestras in the world.
It is likely that promoters for this event will turn to flyer printing companies to create advertising materials for them. Postcards, posters, and flyers are a cost-effective way to alert people to an event. Organizers may also want to contact banner printers to have banners ready as part of the fanfare for the concerts.
The event begins at 3:00 pm on Sunday, July 14. Though this will be the only performance of the New York Philharmonic Brass during the free concert series, the symphony will be playing at other locations during the week as well. For those who are interested, there will be performances in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan – each of which will be followed by a fireworks presentation provided by Bay Fireworks.
