Sunny days, shorts and flip flops – it’s starting to feel like summer, and with the warmer weather comes the return of the Summer Sounds Concert Series to New Rochelle.
The beloved series of free concerts kicks off June 28th as the New Rochelle Council on the Arts (NRCA) presents its annual summer concert series at both the historic Hudson Park band shell and right downtown in the heart of the city at New Ro Parc (455 Main Street between North Avenue and LeCount Place). Both locations will feature great bands and food trucks.
The Summer Sounds Concert Series will begin its 16th season on June 28th with The Loyales, a band New York Magazine described as “like a living, breathing jukebox.” and finish on August 30th with FDR Drive playing R & B, disco and Motown hits; in between the series will feature an eclectic lineup of musicians performing everything from Top 40 favorites to mellow jazz, Grateful Dead jams to classical opera, as well as Latin, Reggae, funk and soul. In all, music lovers will get to hear exciting live music at Hudson Park on 10 consecutive Wednesdays at 7:30 pm, plus 9 Friday evening concerts at 7:30 pm at New Ro Parc.
In addition, NRCA will present an evening of FREE Shakespeare at Hudson Park with the acclaimed Irvington Shakespeare Company’s production of “Pericles, Prince of Tyre” on Sunday, July 23rd at 6:30 pm. For more information go to https://irvshakespeare.org/
As always there will be food trucks on site for all events offering meals and snacks for sale. In addition, the Hudson Park Children’s Greenhouse will once again offer free yoga in the park every Wednesday before the Hudson Park concerts. Instructor Angela Derecas Taylor will offer a free class suitable for people of all abilities from 6 to 6:45 pm.
The Summer Sounds concert series is presented by the New Rochelle Council on the Arts, in partnership with the New Rochelle Dept. of Parks and Recreation, and co-sponsored by Monarch Assisted Living, LMXD (the mixed-income development affiliate of L+M Development Partners) and Wilder Balter Partners, and RXR.
