The new Lions bandshell in the village's Flanders Performance Park will soon be the place for concerts this summer. Side windows were installed before winter as was much of the landscaping. All the remains is some siding work on the rear closet in the band shell and the erection of the community's hemlock cone.
The photo below shows at left the tiers of grass seating, faced by large granite pieces cut and numbered to fit. To the right is the mosiac-style stone dance floor.
The village electric crew installed low-voltage lights atop bollards to gently light the seating areas.
Tupper Arts has finalized its season of Tuesday evening concerts, dubbed “Summer Sunset Series” and sponsored in part by village funds and donations which will be collected at each event. The first performance will be July 3, which will be a patriotic performance to kick off the fireworks in the park later that evening and the celebration the next day. Performers Ben and Jay will open for George and Liz Cordes and their band of talented area musicians who will salute the nation in music.
The Lions Club is hoping to sponsor, in cooperation with other local civic clubs and private businesses, a handful of Wednesday night concerts, featuring local and area performers. The Adirondack Singers are booked for an evening in late July. Any band or solo artist interested in performing and any group or business here interested in sponsoring a Wednesday evening presentation is asked to contact Dan McClelland.
