We've just received word that tonight's hotly-anticipated free concert on the Great Lawn in Central Park will proceed as scheduled starting at 8:10 p.m. The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra (SSO), conducted by Long Yu, and exuberant pianist Lang Lang will perform Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture; Rossini’s Largo al factotum della citta from The Barber of Seville; Gounod’s “Je veux vivre” from Roméo et Juliette; Mozart’s “La ci darem la mano” from Don Giovannii; Guang Zhou’s Go and See the World; and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.

This will be preceded by the New York Philharmonic's performance of Tchaikovsky’s Polonaise from Eugene Onegin; Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story; and Ravel’s Boléro. Fireworks will conclude the program, and the Philharmonic's publicist tells us "it looks like the rain will hold (fingers crossed)."

According to Weather.com, there's currently only a 20% chance of rain before midnight. So grab a bottle of Bloomberg-approved white wine and get over there!
