Nyack was alive with the sound of music this summer. In addition to concerts in the Carnegie Room at the Nyack Library and the Mostly Music series in Memorial Park, live music filled the air in Nyack this July. Joining the fifth annual Nyack Jazz Week that concluded on the 28th, Walk the Beat turned local streets into a dance floor on the 21st, and First Friday has become a new venue for outdoor performers.
This Thurs., Aug. 1, the oldest of our outdoor music festivals, the Music in the Garden Jazz Series at the Edward Hopper House Art Center offers their final performance of the summer featuring the Matt Havilland Quintet. (In case of rain the performance will be held at Grace Church, 130 First Avenue)
But the beat goes on. Here are some of the remaining world class music events in Nyack this summer.
