Target Free Thursdays to Preview MIDSUMMER NIGHT SWING, 6/7 & 21
The weather is getting warmer and that means it will soon be time for dancing under the stars at Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center’s annual dance party, Midsummer Night Swing.
To get ready (and break in the new dancing shoes) before Swing opens its season on June 25, Target® Free Thursdays presents two exciting dance bands this June at the David Rubenstein Atrium. On June 7, dance to the kickin’ sounds of rising young Cajun band Feufollet. On June 21, it’s sizzling swing dancing to the sophisticated sound of the Boilermakers Jazz Band, who have been past favorites at Midsummer Night Swing. June 14 is a regular Target® Free Thursdays concert of rockin’ blues with a Greek soul with Athens-born, New York rock/blues musician Spiros Soukis. On June 28, the New York Philharmonic offers an Offstage event at the Atrium featuring a talk between composer Magnus Lindberg and WQXR’s Jeff Spurgeon, and performances by Philharmonic musicians and guest, including Lindberg’s Trio for Clarinet, Cello and piano.
Admission is FREE. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center is located at Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets.
