      One of Bryant Park’s most popular programs, “Piano in Bryant Park,” returns for New Yorkers who’ve been eagerly awaiting outdoor performances.

      “The return of this program signifies an important step on the road to normalcy in the city,” said Dan Biederman, executive director of Bryant Park Corporation. “Outdoor cultural and entertainment events will fill a void since many indoor concert venues remain off-limits. And we know many park visitors have been anticipating the resumption of our events and activities.”

      Audiences are encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing while seated in the park’s iconic moveable bistro chairs.

      The entire schedule is:
