We are pleased to host a free concert series by Viva Voce/the Staten Island Philharmonic outside in High Rock Park – under our tall trees! Bench seating is available, or you are welcome to bring a lawn chair.

There is a five-minute walk along a paved road to the stage area within the park. There is also limited parking closer to the stage for those who are unable to walk the distance. Our parking assistants will direct you. This event is free. Program is subject to change.
