Live Music

Conservatory Plaza
Enjoy some outdoor music and welcome the spring season with the swinging tunes of these bands.

Love, Charley

Friday; 1–4 p.m.
The Gilded Age—the era of Gatsby, flappers, speakeasies, and fun—inspires Love, Charley, New York City’s romantic jazz and swing band. Be transported back in time to the era when dance music crackled on gramophones and the radio, and New York was a hotbed of jazz. Centered around the lush vocals and ukulele of Martina, Love, Charley sparkles with champagne melodies and dance rhythms.

The Lovesome

Saturday & Sunday; 1–4 p.m.
Upscale and always tasteful, The Lovesome performs soulful Jazz and vintage R&B from the '40s to the '70s in a classic, effervescent style. Anchored by the lush vocals of Kelsey Jillette, the group plays songs made famous by Ray Charles, Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, Etta James, and Frank Sinatra (to name but a few) in a romantic, danceable, and engaging style.

Live Music


The award-winning eco-music ensemble Englewinds performs a virtuosic program featuring Flight of the Bumblebee by Rimsky-Korsakoff, The Bee by Sarah Davol, and other bee-related music. Englewinds musicians: Marcia Hankle, flute; Sarah Davol, oboe; Mitch Kriegler, clarinet; R.J. Kelley, horn; and Atsuko Sato, bassoon. The program offers an opportunity to reflect on the disappearance of honeybees. A New York City beekeeper will talk after the concert about honeybees and how we can help.

Saturday & Sunday

Sweet Megg and the Wayfarers transport you to a world of their own making, incorporating elements of New Orleans and Harlem swing, Parisian cabaret, and blues into one charming musical performance.

City Island Gold Apiary

Located close to Pelham Bay Park, the Apiary is an ideal setting for honeybees. By educating New Yorkers about how their food is produced, the apiary turns consumers into co-producers by way of public outreach on honeybees and conservation. They conduct "Bee Whisperers' Workshops" without protective gear, as working closely with the insects fosters an intuitive understanding of honeybee behavior.

Designer Chairman Ken Fulk

Ken Fulk creates experiences large and small. For 20 years, the San Francisco-based designer has been known for his richly layered interiors and over-the-top parties. In the last decade, Fulk has evolved into far more than a designer of spaces. He's now the curator of a lifestyle, not only designing clients' homes—down to their custom stationery and signature scent—but also their wardrobes, weddings, dinner parties and family vacations. His firm, Ken Fulk Inc, is a creative think tank made up of designers, artists, architects, graphic designers, brand strategists and producers—all based out of a four-story 1920s building affectionately called "The Magic Factory." The Magic Factory's New York City outpost is opening in the Spring of 2016.
