Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced today that The Duprees will perform at Eisenhower Parks Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in East Meadow on Saturday, July 7th. The 50th Anniversary show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.
The Duprees are known for their romantic interpretations of the most beautiful love songs ever written. They have made a career out of giving new life to old hits and obtained popularity after recording Jo Stafford's 1950’s ballad “You Belong to Me.” They possess a smooth vocal quality that collaborates well with big band arrangements providing audiences a unique and unmistakable sound. Paired with an energetic stage presence, The Duprees will be sure to entertain with a performance consisting of a wonderful mixture of romance and fun.
Much of the programming at the Lakeside Theatre is made possible through the Nassau County Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which are proceeds from taxes on hotel and motel rooms in Nassau County. Since 2006, Nassau County has received more than ten million dollars from the Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which also has assisted in historic building restoration and other cultural enhancements.
The Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre is located near parking fields 6 and 6A in Eisenhower Park. Since Lakeside Theatre is a venue with no formal seating, concertgoers are urged to bring folding chairs or blankets. Special accommodations are available for disabled patrons, including reserved parking, easily accessible restrooms, and a convenient reserved location on the hill. Assistive hearing devices are also available for the hearing impaired upon request.
Eisenhower Park, operated by the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums, is located in East Meadow, with entrances on Hempstead Turnpike and Merrick Avenue.
