I may be the afternoon drive DJ on a classic rock radio station, but I love all forms of music. I think at this point in the pandemic, I'm so desperate to see live music that if someone set up on a street corner humming into a kazoo and farting, I'd stop and listen.

I wrote about the New Haven Symphony Orchestra last fall. They also were desperate to continue to play live music during the coronavirus, so they did a series of concerts in New Haven's Canal Dock Boathouse on Long Wharf Drive.

I just saw an announcement on their social media that they're doing it again, and they've expanded it to 14 concerts at the Boathouse and a few special performances in downtown New Haven. It's such a cool location and series of events, I thought you might like to hear about them.

According to the post, musicians from the New Haven Symphony Orchestra are going to put on 14 different performances on Friday and Sunday afternoons, from May 21 to July 4, 2021 at the Canal Dock Boathouse, and there will also be special free pop-up performances held in the display window of 900 Chapel Street on the New Haven Green too. The 14 performances at the Canal Dock Boathouse are ticketed events, and the tickets for each individual show go on sale this coming Monday, April 19, 2021 at Noon.

If you've never been to Long Wharf Drive in New Haven, it's beautiful down there on a warm, spring day. The view is beautiful and Long Wharf Drive is also a very famous Food Truck destination, dozens line up and serve through lunch and dinner.


Stroll along Long Wharf Drive, eat some street tacos, warm, fresh churros, and listen to some Shubert, John Phillip Sousa, Phillip Glass, or Leonard Bernstein? I'm in.
