Join the Fort Tryon Park Trust and Inwood Art Works for a “meet the artist” guided podcast tour of episodes 10-12 of the 12-part Mendelssohn on the Hudson production.
This musical and historical tour follows the footsteps of the German Jews and others who ﬂed 1930s Nazi Germany to settle in Washington Heights, also referred to at the time as “Frankfurt on the Hudson.” Visitors will hear episodes with songs based on true ﬁeld-collected stories from neighborhood residents set to Felix Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words and featuring neighborhood landmarks like those in Fort Tryon Park.
Meet the artist and start the tour at Heather Garden’s Margaret Corbin Circle entrance at 3:00 p.m. Each podcast is five minutes in length and the artist will lead attendees on the three episodes that center on Fort Tryon Park. There will be a Q&A with the artist following the tour. Bring headphones and your smartphone to be able to hear the podcast in real time. Register HERE.
