The Parrish Art Museum’s Friday Night series at the Museum presents “Jazz on the Terrace” with flute and sax player Julie Bluestone and her ensemble performing on Friday, August 7, at 6 p.m. The event takes place outdoors on the museum’s covered terrace with possible use of the event lawn, weather permitting. Advance online ticket purchase with pre-event registration is required. Guests are asked to bring their own chairs as no museum seating is available.
“I’m delighted that the Parrish is able to continue to offer safe and high quality outdoor music on our terrace with the wonderful Julie Bluestone and her ensemble,” said Corinne Erni, senior curator of ArtsReach and special projects.
An accomplished composer, arranger, teacher, and instrumentalist, Bluestone has been performing her eclectic mix of Latin rhythms and Jazz standards — including the classic songs of Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Duke Ellington, as well as classic rock, disco, R&B, and swing — throughout New York City and the East End for nearly two decades. She has sat in with the Meeting House Jazz Orchestra, the Kit McClure Big Band, and Las Chicas de New York; played at The Plaza, Rainbow Room, Birdland, Sardi’s, Tavern on the Green, Copacabana, and many other New York venues; and performed at the Newark, Tennessee, and Ottawa Jazz Festivals — and at a presidential inaugural ball.
Tickets are $20 ($10 for members), available at parrishart.org. The Parrish Art Museum is at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill.
