City Parks Foundation Presents SummerStage Jubilee
Songs & Stories Benefiting Free Programs in Parks

Thursday, September 17, 2020

8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

SummerStage YouTube, and Facebook

Premiered on September 17, 2020

Since we were unable to hold our gala this year to help fund the free concerts and programs City Parks Foundation offers our city, we presented SummerStage Jubilee—a benefit concert film in celebration and support of our work in parks for all New Yorkers.

The Jubilee, featuring original performances by Sting, Norah Jones, Trey Anastasio, Leslie Odom, Jr., Rosanne Cash, Rufus Wainwright, Emily King, and PJ Morton, and park stories from Billie Jean King, Paul Shaffer, Lewis Black, Ryan Seacrest, Jimmy Fallon, and H.E.R. premiered September 17, 2020 as a special limited engagement event closing on October 16th.

All support received will ensure that our free programs in parks will continue to provide experiential, environmental science-based lessons, tools and bulbs for volunteers to beautify local parks, training, microgrants, and coaching to facilitate green space advocacy, and youth sports instruction. Your support will also help maintain our new virtual arts festival, SummerStage Anywhere, to ensure that the performing arts remain available to all, while allowing us to gear up for in-person concerts when they are allowed next year.
