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.

Outdoor Music on Sunset Wednesdays

Enjoy seven outdoor concerts—free with admission to the grounds—enliven Sunset Wednesdays, with the last on Bronx Salsa Fest! Vibrant New York City musicians bring a pop sensibility to their performances on Wave Hill's Great Lawn. Sunset Wednesday concerts this summer are pop-infused, in a nod to Nature Pops!, the summer exhibition n in Glyndor Gallery. Visitors may bring a chair, or purchase supper from The Cafe at Wave Hill, and picnic during each performance. 

2016–2017 Concert Season

Wave Hill kicks off its 2016‒2017 concert season in late October with the first of ten extraordinary performances in Armor Hall. This season’s adventurous mix of musical styles and performers is selected by Wave Hill Performing Arts Curator Amy Roberts Frawley, and offers a spicy mix of traditional and innovative sounds. 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 lunch in The Café before the concert begins at 2PM. Look for more details about the new season, pricing and on-sale dates, in June.
