Last Minute Weekend Suggestions: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

On Friday evening at 8:00 Bargemusic presents a concert spanning the baroque, romantic, and modern, as cellist Wendy Sutter (photo) and pianist Olga Vinokur play works by Bach, Shostakovich, and Rachmaninoff. On Saturday evening at 8:00 and Sunday afternoon at 4:00 the Manhattan Symphonie’s chamber ensemble, featuring Mark Peskanov on violin and Gerald Robbins on piano will play works by Rossini, Mendelssohn, and Schubert. There’s more information and buy tickets here. Saturday afternoon at 4:00 there will be a free, family oriented “Music in Motion” concert, co-sponsored by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. Doors open at 3:45; first come, first seated.

As I write this, the Brooklyn Bridge Park website is down, or for some reason inaccessible from my computer. I can only guess that Smorgasburg will be back on the Pier 5 uplands on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; that there will be a free Pier Kids program on the Pier 6 lawns from !1:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Sunday, and that you may take a free guided park tour by going to the Pier 1 entrance near the foot of Old Fulton Street at 11:00 a.m. Sunday. If I can get more details, I’ll post them as soon as possible. Update: the Park website, now redesigned, is back up. Tomorrow’s (Sunday, July 12) Pier Kids event, at the Pier 6 lawns from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. features:

Award-winning, kiddie music duo, Play Date in concert! They’ll be bringing their guitars and infectious, positive energy playing popular songs like “Dance Like a Monster,” “Anyone Can Sing,” “Rad,” and debuting songs from their new album, We All Shine!

Afterward, there will be free art activities with Private Picassos.
