Caumsett Foundation Sunset Music Series Presents Nina Et cetera
Friday, May 24, 2024 06:30 PM
Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve
The genesis of the band is to be found in the fact that Nina began studying guitar and singing at the age of 7 with her current bass player Tim. That was, 21 years ago. Since then Nina has studied at Berklee College of Music and has played in numerous bands. Although Tim is primarily an autodidact he did study North Indian vocal music for a number of years in New Delhi and managed a few semesters of music theory at Long Island University. In addition to performing Nina and Tim also teach privately. When they are not on the road they are writing and recording in a manner that combines the best of old and new technologies. Nina Et cetera has been performing professionally for the past 10 years in just about every imaginable venue across the Tri-State area; bars, restaurants, libraries, street fairs, assisted livings, bandshells, busking, vineyards, etc. SIGN UP: https://www.caumsettfoundation.org/programs.

Caumsett Foundation Sunset Music Series Presents NY Star Harbor Band
Friday, May 31, 2024 06:30 PM
Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve
"From the remnants of their local punk rock scene emerges this 5-piece band from Long Island, NY Star Harbor. Drawing from their individually eclectic musical tastes, the members of Star Harbor have fused elements of indie rock, folk, southern rock, and even the ethereal elements of progressive rock to form a sound as familiar to the ear as it is curious in its conception. " When the band's 4 original members, Mike Mallamo, Thomas Comerford, Jason Rind, and Kenny Grau first came together, they decided that all traditional rules for songwriting were off the table as "fitting within any genre" was not going to be the focal point of the group's sound. Their goal was simply to write songs in a style all their own. Their 1st full length eventually titled "The Sun, The Moon, & The Open Road" was released in February of 2020. With the COVID lockdown thwarting the band's efforts to play live in support of their 1st release, Star Harbor regrouped in 2022 and went back into VUDU STUDIOS to record their follow-up record which was a 3-song E.P. titled, "Constellations". This release saw the band's sound evolve yet again as they took more of a spacey, progressive approach to their songwriting. Star Harbor continues to play original shows as well as cover shows that incorporate their own take on familiar 70's 80's and 90's hits we all love but may have forgotten.

Project 23.6° N is a new chamber ensemble dedicated to highlighting the music of Taiwan from past to present.

The group advocates for Taiwanese music from the past to present in the world of classical music dominated by Western composers, aiming to promote the music of Taiwan on an international scale. Founded by three doctoral music students at SUNY Stony Brook, Pianist Calvin Hu has been invited to perform alongside faculty from NYC's top music schools, including Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, and Stony Brook through the Starry Nights concert and was the recipient of the Ackerman Award for musical excellence in the graduating 2023 class.
