The “Sounds of Summer” are coming to the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, through September 6.
The free music programs will be offered during all the summer programs, when music lovers are invited to grab a seat on the terrace or bring beach chairs or blankets for relaxing on the lawn. On select evenings, the Art of Eating café on site will be serving libations, including beer and wine.
Jazz en Plein Air will kick off Friday, May 31, at 5 p.m., with the first of four summer concerts hosted by the Parrish Business Members and programmed by the East End’s legendary Richie Siegler, jazz musician and founding director of Escola de Samba BOOM. Opening the Parrish Jazz series will be Hector Martignon’s Foreign Affair Quartet.
Subsequent Jazz en Plein Air performances will be held monthly, on Fridays, June 28, July 26 and August 30. Programs run from 5 to 8 p.m. and all are free with museum admission.
Also coming up, DJ Mister Lama will make his first appearance on the terrace on June 14 from 6 to 8 pm.
Another performance series, East End or Busk, will bring New York street performers, or “buskers,” to perform on the museum’s wraparound terrace. The series kicks off Saturday, June 22, from noon to 3 p.m., then continues on the terrace on Fridays, July 5 and August 2, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and will conclude on Friday, September 6, “with Bluegrass & BBQ,” with The Ebony Hillbillies.
Museum admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and free for members, children and students. For additional information, visit parrishart.org.
