The 3rd FREE OUTDOOR CONCERT at the Hartsdale farmer's market for the 2011 summer season will be held this Saturday, June 17th at 10 AM. The concert will feature the Westchester Harp Ensemble. The concerts are held at DeSanti Plaza, across from the Hartsdale train station.
We still have openings for bands, choirs, musicians to perform on other Saturday mornings during the summer months. We don't pay our musicians but will honor them at a Town Board meeting in the fall with a Certificate of Appreciation. We will also help promote the band/choir/musicians. If you would like to perform, please call Judith Beville, Town Clerk at 993-1504 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP MUSICIANS SET UP EVERY WEEK. Please e mail Ms. Beville if you would like to help.
Last summer and fall 18 concerts were held on E Hartsdale Ave! The goal: to promote community, to encourage people to shop on E Hartsdale Ave and to enjoy our farmer's market. And...to listen to great music!
