The schedule for this summer's Celebrate Brooklyn festival was just announced, and there are some GREAT performances on tap this year! All events are FREE and held at the Prospect Park Bandshell.

I'm especially excited about seeing Miriam Makeba (June 14), and Brazilian Girls (July 11). The Deerhoof/Metropolis Ensemble's performance of Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" will probably be quite interesting (July 18), and I'll definitely be staking out a seat to see Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater perform (August 7). I could go on -- Beth Orton, Issac Hayes, the Philip Glass Ensemble, Brave New World Rep doing Fahrenheit 451... The list is amazing!
BRIC has outdone itself this summer with this lineup -- I don't remember being so psyched about it last year. So get your picnic baskets and lawn blankets ready for heavy use this summer, and we'll see you there!
