On September 15, 2011, I and tens of thousands of New Yorkers gathered together at the Great Lawn in Central Park to listen to Andrea Bocelli (and guests) sing and make beautiful music. If you saw the PBS program derived from the live concert, Concerto: One Night in Central Park, you may know that on that night it was unseasonably cold and it rained buckets.
The inclement weather did not deter those of us fortunate enough to snag tickets to the free concert; a quintessential New York experience. Together we braved the elements so that we could be elevated by the joyous and romantic music. We entered the park as strangers, but we huddled, companionably, together for warmth. We shared our blankets and umbrellas and whatever else was handy, to fashion makeshift shelters against the storm. We were in it together.
I didn’t take very many photos at the concert. It would have taken an ambidextrous octopus to juggle the camera, the jacket, the shawl, the binoculars, the towels, and the picnic blanket and, of course, the umbrella, but I did manage to get a shot of two concert goers. They were part of the superset of concert goers and huddled together they formed their own sweet subset.
