American Salute 2023! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

You have 2 more opportunities this holiday weekend to hear SIPhil’s American Salute! We have a 42-piece wind ensemble, Viva Voce Chorus, and Dyker Singers performing music by Richard Rodgers, Leonard Bernstein, along with patriotic favorites. Our conductor is Scott Jackson Wiley, guest conductor is Donna D’Ermilio, and last, but not least, the renowned Wayne Miller as narrator for a musical setting of “Casey at the Bat.” Oh, and it’s all FREE! Bring a lawn chair, bring refreshments (Tuesday’s concert will also have refreshments onsite), and have a great time.

Ukrainian Heritage Concert πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦

Due to the high probability of rain this weekend, the Staten Island Philharmonic’s Ukrainian Heritage concert has moved indoors, to Huguenot Park Reformed Church, 5474 Amboy Road. Still Sunday, June 25, 6 pm, and still FREE! First half has Sergei Prokofiev’s iconic Peter and the Wolf, and a piece by contemporary Ukrainian composer Catherine Likhuta, “Let the Darkness Out.” Leonard Bernstein’s parents were both immigrants from the Ukraine, so the second half will be all Bernstein, with selections from West Side Story, On the Town, and Candide. Come on down–you’ll have a great time while staying dry!
