BRIC Stands With Our Black Community

A Letter From Our President:

In this moment of profound reckoning for our country, I'm stunned by having witnessed so brazenly the ongoing consequences of whiteness being weaponized against Black bodies. I grieve for the Black lives taken from us: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. I'm also pained by the toll COVID-19 has taken on our country, our city, our borough, and our neighbors. KEEP READING >>

Summer Fun

“We’ve been Friends Members for many years now and there is nothing more enjoyable to me than sitting outside listening to amazing live music with family and friends. Watching the trees sway, feeling the breeze.”

“I love the friendly, warm and courteous atmosphere provided by all the staff and volunteers.”

Front-Row Seating and Tent Access

“The Friends seating is the best part of the membership. Having the first ten rows available makes the cost of the Friends Membership completely worth it.”

“I REALLY enjoy receiving table service in the Friends Tent and appreciate the extra space that is available to patrons.”

Discovering New Music

“There were so many great memories, but my favorite was going to see Antibalas. I was unfamiliar with their music and I normally wouldn't be into their genre, but the weather was perfect and I was completely swept up by their performance. I ended up on my feet and dancing right in front of the stage for the better part of their performance. It was perfect.”
