Celebrate the official start of the season as Grammy-nominated baritone Christopher Dylan Herbert presents an encore performance of Franz Schubert’s Winterreise (Winter Journey), a song cycle that sets to music 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller. The performance will migrate throughout the Garden, using nature as a backdrop for the vivid imagery of Müller’s poetry and Schubert’s music, with German-to-English supertitles created by students from Parsons The New School for Design. Audience members will provide the musical accompaniment using handheld radios provided by Make Music New York.

Garden admission is free before noon.
