RCTA Sunset Concert: Jazz
Calling all blankets, picnic baskets, and candles! The Riverside Clay Tennis Association is once again hosting its series of sunset concerts on the tennis lawn overlooking the Hudson River at 97th Street.
This week’s performer: Ron McClure & Friends. Once again, perennial favorite and world-renowned jazz bassist Ron McClure opens the season. During his illustrious career, Ron has played with Buddy Rich, Maynard Ferguson, Herbie Mann and Blood Sweat and Tears. Ron has played every season at the RCTA summer series for the past 15 years. He’s also a fine tennis player.
The Series celebrates our fabulous park and represents the rich cultural diversity of the Upper West Side. Each concert begins at 7 p.m. and continues through shades of orange, red and purple, ending around 9 p.m. Bring your picnic basket and blanket and join us. Stick around afterward and watch the fireflies rise up out of the lawn and the stars speckle the sky. In the event of inclement weather, call the hotline, 212-978-0277, to see whether a concert has been postponed.
