Taking place at Nolan Park on Governors Island, Rite of Summer presents free outdoor concerts through September curated by Co-Artistic Directors Pam Goldberg and Blair McMillen.

New works written exclusively for the group by Kamala Sankaram, Jackson Greenberg, Aleksandra Vrebalov, Pedro Giraudo, Jessica Meyer, Shawn Conley, and Jobina Tinnemans will be featured alongside music of the Punch Brothers, Komitas, Radiohead, and Andy Akiho's Revolve, which brilliantly captures the upbeat excitement and motion of his New York neighborhood in music.
