On Saturday, bring your picnic basket and chairs and enjoy a free concert in Prospect Park where the Goldman Memorial Band will perform its first Music Pagoda event in 13 years.

The band will perform a gala concert honoring tuba virtuoso Harvey Phillips, including "A Visit to the Big Top," a musical and narrative journey into the circus world in recognition of Phillips’ early years with circus bands. (Phillips has created events such as TubaChristmas, OctubaFest, TubaJazz and an organization, the Tubist Universal Brotherhood Association, to promote the instrument.)

The band, under maestro Christian Wilhjelm (pictured), will also perform compositions by John Philip Sousa, Edwin Franko and Richard Rodgers among others.

The performance takes place on June 22 at 4 pm at the Music Pagoda, located between the Nethermead and Boathouse in Prospect Park. For more information, call the band hotline (212) 560-7587.
