Islip Arts Council’s Summer ’08 Concerts

The Islip Arts Council proudly presents:

Our 32nd Season of Free Summer Concerts

The concerts are free, but the Parks charge a parking fee.

This year, the Islip Arts Council celebrates its milestone 32nd season of presenting fine music in its Free Concert Series. The mix of performers and genres is truly eclectic, in a nod to the delightful and varied programs that were commonplace during the heyday of the Fillmore East and My Father’s Place during that free-spirited generation of concerts.

Beginning June 1st, the Sunday Afternoon Free Concerts will once again fill the air with music on the Great Lawn at the idyllic Bayard Cutting Arboretum on Montauk Highway in Great River for the entire summer until August 31st. The music ranges from Bluegrass to Blues, Swing to Brass, Jazz and Rock, performed on tuba, guitar, French horn, sax, drums and the intriguing and dazzling Chapman Stick. What could be better than spending a lazy Sunday afternoon under the trees listening to an amazing array of musicians at the most enchanting location on Long Island ? The Arboretum’s resident ospreys think so; they often glide overhead to listen to the music as the sounds are wafting skyward.

Starting the week after Independence Day, The Tuesday Lunchtime Brown Bag Concerts at the Bay Shore Band Shell in Dr. King’s Park on Main Street , Bay Shore provide a delightful interlude in the work week. This charming venue will ring out with Honky-tonk piano, 60s-style folk singing, favorite elder statesmen of the Big Band era and an old-time family string band. There will even be interpretive ballerinas dancing to a songwriter’s creations.

On Saturday July 12, the Islip Arts Council presents the 31st Annual New York Philharmonic Free Concert at Heckscher State Park . This magnificent event is the largest one-day cultural event on Long Island , attended by well over 50,000 last year. This year’s concert promises to be most inspiring, with a program that will feature two young violin soloists who will perform for the throng immediately before the spectacular finale of fireworks by the world-famous Grucci family.

Families seeking an agreeable diversion will be thrilled to discover crowd-pleasing bands at the Sayville Common Ground gazebo on Saturday afternoons in late June and early September. Animal lovers will be happy to hear that music is coming back to the dog-friendly Gardiner County Park on August evenings.

I am very excited about these concerts, and more are on the way. I will be sending complete press releases about each concert, and the list of concerts booked thus far is attached. Thank you to everyone who lists our concerts. I do appreciate it very much in these interesting times that we are in!

– Amy Tuttle, Artistic Director, Islip Arts Council
