Do you have a great story from one of the New York Philharmonic’s Concerts in the Parks — like violinist James Ehnes (set to perform Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in the Parks July 12, 16, and 17), who proposed to his then-girlfriend following his 2003 Parks performance and Philharmonic debut? (The happy couple married the next summer and recently had their first child.) We want to hear your stories! Post them on the wall of the NY Philharmonic’s Facebook timeline.
And while you’re there, enter our ticket giveaway for the chance to win four VIP lawn tickets for the July 13 and 16 concerts in Central Park.
