PLAN DATE: SUN / JUL. 14
Begin your evening with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, where you’ll absorb the modern, classic, and folk soundscapes of their Summer Evenings program. The group has established a niche for itself with its sound, which manages to be both pure and sumptuous. The concert begins at 5 p.m. in Alice Tully Hall, and the programming includes Mozart, Weber, and Schubert. Tickets range from $40-75, but a select number of tickets are $20 for those aged 21-39 by calling 212-875-5788. See the full calendar here to book something in the future.
After, it’s open season on seats at the nearest wine bar. Head a few blocks north to Le Pif, where a glass of vino is all you need to complete your cozy Sunday evening. Quaint and with charm to spare, Le Pif, French for “small intuition,” will quickly become your Lincoln Center post-show go-to.
Upper West Side
Danish String Quartet
Alice Tully Hall, 1941 Broadway, Manhattan
idk tip: “Schubert’s epic First Piano Trio of 1827 was a direct response to Beethoven’s magisterial “Archduke” Trio of 1811. Into this large-scale work, Schubert poured all of his inimitable lyricism, making it perhaps history’s longest, sweetest song for chamber ensemble.”
Le Pif Wine Bar
2058 Broadway, Manhattan
idk tip: With a selection of 65 bottles of French wine, and 40 offered by the glass, you’d be remiss not to sample some of the best of the Loire Valley and surrounding regions. An added incentive—happy hour is until 7pm, 7 nights a week, with glasses of wine for $7.
