Partnering with Bank of America, Bryant Park Announces 2019 Performing Arts Lineup

This summer, Bryant Park promises to inspire all who visit, thanks to Bryant Park Picnic Performances. Running from May through September 2019, the series offers FREE cultural performances as a new part of Bank of America’s longstanding partnership with the Bryant Park Corporation.

The Picnic Performance lineup has a little something for everyone, featuring performances ranging from gospel music, pride celebrations, community dance workshops, theater, and classical concerts. Participating institutions include Carnegie Hall, the New York City Opera, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and The Drilling Company.

Bryant Park’s brand-new stage with upgraded lighting and sound system is sure to enhance every performance and each audience member’s experience. Tickets are not required to attend, and Bryant Park lends out free blankets for audience members to relax on while enjoying the show on the Lawn. In addition, each event will have food and beverages available for purchase.

Since 2008 when the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park opened, Bank of America and its New York employees have supported their local park, and are proud to announce this latest partnership experience. “Our year-round partnership with Bryant Park further reinforces our commitment to the community, bringing a wide range of cultural experiences to New Yorkers and visitors alike,” said Anne Walker, New York City President at Bank of America. “We believe in the power of the arts to help economies thrive, educate and enrich societies, and create greater cultural understanding. That’s why we partner with organizations like Bryant Park to create innovative programming like Picnic Performances that allow audiences to experience the arts, for free.”
