When it comes to classical music, you can identify what you like but probably never remember the name of the composer. Its not that you dont want to do the homework but youd rather sit among the hoi polloi than wedge yourself between the elites any day of the week. The Brooklyn Philharmonic, led by conductor Robert Moody, understands and performs tonight under the stars at Prospect Park. Stake your plot of land and dont be intimidated by the vino-drinking and fromage-eating yuppiestheres plenty of room for everyone.
