The performing arts at Wave Hill range from outdoor concerts on the Great Lawn during summer Sunset Wednesdays, to a richly diverse series of concerts in Armor Hall that starts each fall. Music is also a feature of occasional seasonal celebrations.

2016–2017 Concert Season

Wave Hill opens its 2016‒2017 concert season in late October with the first of ten extraordinary performances in Armor Hall. This season’s delectable mix of traditionaland popular musical styles and performers is selected by Wave Hill Performing Arts Curator Amy Roberts Frawley.

Originally built to house the remarkable collection of arms and armor of former Wave Hill House resident Bashford Dean, Armor Hall’s soaring windows afford views of the stunning garden landscape, while the gracious intimacy of the space offers superb acoustics. Come early to enjoy a leisurely stroll through the gardens, or perhaps lunch or afternoon tea in The Café before the concert begins at 2PM.

Performances begin at 2PM and last approximately one hour with no intertmission, unless otherwise specified. Ticket prices: Adult $28/$22 Wave Hill Members, Children ages 8 to 18 $15/$12. Special ticket pricing for full-length concerts with intermission: $45/$35 Wave Hill Member. Order tickets online or onsite at the Perkins Visitor Center, starting August 10.
