Washington Square Park, West 4th Street and MacDougal, 252-3621
The two free classical concerts this year feature a conductorless orchestra, although cellist Lutz Rath, as official music director, will doubtless settle any arguments. July 16 at 8: Beethovens's Septet and Dvorák's two heady Serenades, one for winds and the other for strings. July 23 at 8: a Mozart Divertimento, Elgar's Elegy, and Britten's Simple Symphony. Southeast quadrant of Washington Square Park, near the Garibaldi statue (follow the puppies).
