The New York Philharmonic will perform with the tenor Andrea Bocelli on Sept. 15

The New York Philharmonic is taking a break from its normal early-summer concerts in New York City parks, adding performances in September instead. The orchestra will perform with the tenor Andrea Bocelli on Sept. 15 on Central Park’s Great Lawn, a special event outside its usual parks series. Two days later at Avery Fisher Hall, it will play William Walton’s music from the movie “Henry V,” narrated by Christopher Plummer, and music from Shakespeare’s time. The concert had originally been planned for the spring but was moved because of a conflict with Mr. Plummer’s schedule, said the orchestra’s spokesman, Eric Latzky.

Two other concerts are planned for September, although Mr. Latzky did not immediately release details. Mr. Latzky said the Philharmonic chose to replace the normal parks concerts with the September performances after the Bocelli concert came up. The regular parks concerts are expected to return in 2012.
