Nyack Weekender: Music, Music, and More Music

Looking for some live music? Nyack’s got you covered six out of the next seven days. Nyack Jazz Week wraps up with performances on Fri-Sun; there’s Music On The Hudson in Memorial Park on Tuesday; Nyack indy artist Alyssa Sequoia plays Maureen’s Jazz Cellar on Wednesday; and there’s Music In The Garden at Hopper House on Thursday. Inspired by what you hear and want to join in? The 5th annual Rockland Summer Sings is Tuesday night.
