"Live at the Gantries is a series of free, outdoor performances featuring a collection of Queens-based musicians as diverse as the borough. 2010 performances include: indie rock, old school Latin jazz, a Chinese harmonica phenom, power gospel, Brazilian jazz with a classical backbone, American roots music, and a dash of Klezmer.
Live at the Gantries starts Sunday June 13 and continues every Tuesday from June 22 through August 31. Every show starts at 7 o’clock and ends with a spectacular sunset at Gantry Plaza State Park, a 10-acre waterside oasis between 49th and 50th Avenues along the East River.
The series is produced The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, Queens Theatre in the Park, and Queens Council on the Arts. It is sponsored by TF Cornerstone with additional support from Rockrose Development Corp, Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan, City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, O’Connor Capital Partners, Con Edison, and L Haus. “Gantry Plaza State Park is truly a gem, with its spectacular views and unique waterfront location. The return of Live at the Gantries is a special and unique way for children and families throughout the city to experience the arts together.” Carol Ash, the Commissioner of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
“TF Cornerstone continuously looks for ways to support the arts and is excited to support Live at the Gantries. It’s a great way to bring local talent to the community and enjoy the beautiful Manhattan views.”Sofia Estevez, Executive Vice President, TF Cornerstone"
