Thirty years ago this spring, Bryant Park reopened to the public after a four-year renovation, with the purpose of creating a vibrant oasis in Midtown. Since then, one beloved tradition that has emerged is the free series known as Bryant Park Picnic Performances, which comprises more than two dozen events this season.

Picnic Performances, presented by Bank of America, includes dance, theater, opera and more — and its share of jazz. Last summer, WBGO partnered with Bryant Park to feature select concerts from the series here on our website. This year we're teaming up again to host the Bryant Park Picnic Performances livestream on social media and at wbgo.org.

• Saturday, July 23 – Jazzmobile: Bobby Sanabria Multiverse Big Band

WBGO will also spotlight the following Picnic Performances:

• Friday, July 29 – Carnegie Hall Citywide: The Hot Sardines with Nellie McKay

• Thursday, Sept. 8 – Steinway Artists Aaron Diehl + Orrin Evans

Bryant Park Picnic Performances is presented by Bank of America.
