Untermyer Performing Arts Council’s World Fest 2019
A Musical Journey of Psychedelic Soul
5:30 p.m. Saturday, August 15th 2020 at Untermyer Park
& live streamed on the Untermyer Performing Arts Council Facebook Page
The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is presenting American Pop as the first program of World Fest 2020 at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 15th at Untermyer Park, 945 North Broadway in Yonkers.
American Pop was created in Las Vegas by two transplanted “Yonkers boys” Chuck St. Troy and Herman Eng; they wanted to bring the sounds of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, the sounds we loved and miss, back to life. The act was highly successful, so Chuck decided to bring to his hometowns the magic of those exciting years in our musical history. He contacted seasoned professional musicians he had performed with in the past, and carefully put together an exciting program. The group decided to expand, and brought amazing vocalist performer Sheila Galilei into the group, incorporating her fantastic Tina Turner-Motown tribute into the program. Besides the remarkable talents of Ms. Galilei, other members of the group are: Chuck St. Troy, vocals, sax, bass; Rick Agosta, guitar and vocals; Mike Nunz, drums, percussion and vocals; and Ed Sabol, bass and vocals.
For those who cannot attend because of the limited audience who can attend, this performance will be streamed live on Facebook.
This definitely will be another “don’t miss” Untermyer Performing Arts Council World Fest 2020 performances!
Audience attendance is limited to fifty people, and must be reserved in advance on Tuesday, August 11th. Registration for attendees will be checked at the gate from 4:45 pm on that day; only those people with reservations will be admitted to the park. Attendees must wear masks, and bring whatever personal protective equipment they need. Every attendee must bring his or her own chair.
The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to continuing the tradition of Minnie and Samuel Untermyer, bringing musical entertainment to our treasure of a park and the people of Yonkers.

The Untermyer Performing Arts Council (UPAC) was formed in 1976 to promote the appreciation of the performing arts in Yonkers and beyond. UPAC’s mission was to foster and sponsor performing arts events at the historic Untermyer Park and other venues in Yonkers. UPAC is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization that relies on public grants and private donations. To ensure accessibility and welcome the broadest public audience, all UPAC events are free and open to everyone.
In keeping with UPAC’s “WorldFest 2014” theme, this summer’s series includes performances representing nations and regions from around the world including Italy, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and Korea…to name a few. See the full schedule online at www.untermyer.org.
In addition to its popular free summer performance series at Untermyer Park, a new program entitled “UPAC on the Road” was recently launched, with support from Arts Westchester to reach new communities and partner with a variety of neighborhoods, businesses and community organizations.
Now celebrating its 39th year, UPAC continues to grow and seek new ways to serve the residents of Yonkers and the surrounding region. The motto of the Untermyer Performing Arts Council can be summed up with three “E’s”…enlighten, educate and entertain.
