Untermyer Performing Arts Council’s World Fest 2019
Jerry Costanzo and His Gotham City Swingers
7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 6th 2019 at Untermyer Park
The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is presenting Jerry Costanzo and His Gotham City Swingers as the second program of World Fest 2019 at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 6th at Untermyer Park, 945 North Broadway in Yonkers.
Jerry Constanzo and His Gotham City Swingers’ music from the Swing Era to the Rat Pack Stylings of the 50’s and 60’s, with a dash of pop and a smidgeon of classic theme songs thrown in, make this group perfect for our summer season. Their interpretation of songs from the “Great American Songbook,” and their sultry and swinging music, not only brings to life Costanzo’s musical idols, has earned him a devoted following of enthusiastic fans. This definitely will make this another “don’t miss” Untermyer Performing Arts Council World Fest 2019 evening under the stars!

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.
