The New York Philharmonic returns to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine for the annual Memorial Day Concert on Monday, May 31, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street).

Outdoor seating for fully-vaccinated individuals will be available on the Cathedral’s Pulpit Green, and the performance will be live-streamed for free on NYPhil+, on the Philharmonic’s Facebook and YouTube channels, and on the Cathedral’s website and Facebook page.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Cathedral building will not be open to the public for this year’s performance. As is tradition, the audio of the performance will be broadcast onto the adjacent Pulpit Green.

To help ensure the health and safety of all visitors, staff, residents and artists, all who wish to enter the grounds for the annual Memorial Day Concert must be fully vaccinated and wear masks when on the Cathedral grounds. To make the performance as accessible as possible, the concert will also be live-streamed online for all to watch.

Monday’s program, presented without intermission, will include works by Mahler, Jessie Montgomery, Mozart, Schubert, and Carlos Simon, conducted by Gemma New.

Registration online is suggested, but will not guarantee entry onto the Pulpit Green. Visitors are invited to begin lining up at 4pm and doors will open at 5pm. The concert will begin promptly at 7pm.
