This wonderful annual musical event will be held virtually this summer. Join the Fort Tryon Tryon Park Trust, NYC Parks, and the Michels family to celebrate Stanley Michels, a luminary in the history of Fort Tryon Park! We will also celebrate the park’s 85th Anniversary Year by listening to the sounds of jazz by legendary Marjorie Eliot, her son Rudel Drears, and their ensemble.
Stan Michels represented Northern Manhattan in the City Council for 24 years. He was a steadfast advocate for parks, allocating over $50 million for park improvements in Washington Heights, Inwood, and Harlem, including virtually every playground in his district.
The Stan Michels Promenade where this concert is normally held was named in his honor shortly before he passed away on August 1, 2008.
