Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival

BRIC is pleased to announce the lineup for its 37th annual Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival, which will showcase 29 performances from June 3 - August 12. The programming, reflective of Brooklyn's eclecticism and diversity, will feature a wide array of free, world-class performances in the singular environs of the Prospect Park Bandshell.

The 2015 Festival is comprised of a signature mix of music, film, dance and multimedia works, complemented by food and other provisions from local artisans and vendors. Find out more information about Celebrate Brooklyn!

Of the 29 total performances being presented this season, 24 are free (with a $3 suggested contribution at the gate): 19 music concerts, two Music & Movies events in which live music accompanies films that are projected on NYC's largest (50' wide x 21' high) outdoor screen, two dance performances and one mixed-media world premiere featuring visual work accompanied by live music. The remaining five shows are Celebrate Brooklyn! benefit concerts, which offer rare opportunities to see great artists in an extraordinary outdoor setting at reasonable ticket prices while supporting the Festival's free performances.

A highlight of the season, on July 30 the Festival features the world premiere of a special program with a massive, sitespecific, multi-screen installation by the artist Clifford Ross. A live score from the Orchestra of St. Luke's will accompany the piece, featuring works by Wojciech Kilar, Bryce Dessner, Vivaldi and John Adams, including selections from "The Four Seasons" and excerpts from "Shaker Loops".

The Festival is presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.
