Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano has announced the appearance of Nassau Pops Symphony Orchestra at Eisenhower Park’s Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre in a free concert on Tuesday, July 2nd at 7:00 p.m.
The Nassau Pops Symphony Orchestra performs your most beloved music favorites from Broadway, Television and the Movies. Whether it be the beautiful melodies of Rodgers and Hammerstein or the exciting screen music of John Williams, you can always count on The Nassau Pops to present a great mixture of popular and light classical music. The Nassau Pops has performed with Marvin Hamlisch, singer/impressionist Marilyn Michaels, and The Cast of Beatlemania. Their 2000 concert with tenor, Michael Amante, was seen nationwide and nominated for a New York Emmy Award. Keeping the American spirit alive, The Nassau Pops invited one of New York's Finest, Patrolman Daniel Rodriguez as their featured singer in 2002.
Much of the Nassau County Parks Department programming for July, August and September is funded through the Nassau County Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant. These funds are made available to us through proceeds from taxes on hotel and motel rooms in Nassau County. Since 2006, Nassau County has received over ten million dollars from this grant, and it has assisted in historic building restoration and other cultural enhancements.
The concert is free of charge and will take place at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre, near Parking Fields 6 and 6A. Special accommodations are available for persons with disabilities, including reserved parking, accessible restrooms, and a convenient reserved location on the hill. Assistive hearing devices will be available free of charge for the hearing impaired. There is no formal seating at Lakeside, so concertgoers are urged to bring folding chairs or blankets.
