Oboist Robert Botti Plays Outdoors for Concerts in the Parks @ Home

Posted June 24, 2020


New York Philharmonic oboist Robert Botti performs — what else — Gabriel’s Oboe by Ennio Morricone, the composer behind iconic films such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and The Untouchables. Robert is joined by the birds out in Mount Kisco in Westchester, NY. His outdoor performance is part of Concerts in the Parks @ Home, Presented by Didi and Oscar Schafer, our way of recreating the magic of the beloved annual series of free outdoor concerts across the city.

In case you missed it: check out bass trombonist George Curran’s outdoor performance; two Concerts in the Parks archival exhibits on Google Arts & Culture (Top 10 Concerts in the Parks and Priceless Music, Absolutely Free); a global tune-in map; a downloadable prep-your-picnic checklist; and Zoom backgrounds.

Stay tuned for photo slideshows and, of course, the star-studded broadcast tomorrow (Thursday, June 25) at 7:30 PM EDT on Facebook and YouTube.
