Catskill prepares for 20th annual Music in the Park series
Daniel Zuckerman is reporting in The Daily Mail on Catskill's summer concert series, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer. Organizer John Campisi is looking to “spice things up” this year, continuing the diverse array of music and a fireworks show, but he is also attempting to book a nationally recognized performer. The concerts are held at 7 p.m., every Thursday at Dutchman's Landing, and will begin on June 22 this year. The events are sponsored by the Heart of Catskill Association, and supported by the Bank of Greene County, Sawyer Chevrolet and the town of Catskill. Musician Lex Grey, of Catskill, has performed as part of the series several times over the years and will return with her band, the Urban Pioneers, on July 20, she said. Grey appreciates the diversity of the music performed and said the concert series not only guarantees “something awesome,” but it also brings the community together. “It’s wonderful that they’ve managed to pull it together every year,” Grey said. “You never know what you’re going to get on a Thursday.” Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
