Summer music festivals in NYC are about more than sun-soaked island extravaganzas like Governors Ball and Panorama Festival. We are also home to some of the best classical musicians in the world, and one of the best things to do outside during the summer is to re-live some of Mozart's most famous works. Now in its 51st year, this NYC tradition is back to enliven Lincoln Center with (mostly) Mozart, but also works from Mendelssohn, Bach, Schumann and contemporary classical works.

If you only make it to one Mostly Mozart engagement, make it to one of the three performances of George Benjamin's Written on Skin in its U.S. premiere. The 2012 tale of betrayal stars the magnificent Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan.
