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.

2015–2016 Concert Season

Wave Hill kicks off its 2015‒2016 concert season in late September 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—from string quartets and a brass quintet to a baroque ensemble and a swingtime big band. 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.
