Lungs of the City

June 4, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Lungs of the City: Olmsted’s Parks in Music is a program of new chamber music commemorating the 2022 bicentennial of the birth of Frederick Law Olmsted. Olmsted, the 19th century American landscape architect who laid the groundwork for today’s public parks, famously envisioned Central Park as “the lungs of the city.” This unique concert program explores that sentiment through musical investigations of Olmsted’s living legacy of vital urban landscapes across the United States.

Come to Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site on June 4th at 2pm and hear the musical compositions, each inspired by an Olmsted design.
