Summer Music Series [link]

Estherwood Mansion at The Masters School, Clinton Avenue, Dobbs Ferry

Presented by Jazz Forum Arts, in association with the Village of Dobbs Ferry & The Masters School, and co-sponsored by RiverArts. Due to ongoing construction at Waterfront Park this year, our ten, free Wednesday evening concerts will be held on the lawn in front of the beautiful Estherwood Mansion at The Masters School, Clinton Avenue, Dobbs Ferry, NY. Indoors at Estherwood in event of rain. Estherwood is a late 19th-century mansion located on the campus of The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry, New York, United States. It was the home of industrial tycoon James Jenning McComb, who supported Masters financially in its early years when his daughters attended. The house's octagonal library was the first section built. It had been attached to McComb's previous home, but he had felt it deserved a house more in keeping with its style and so had architect Albert Buchman design Estherwood built around it.

July 30: Ed Cherry Organ Quartet
August 6: Quarteto Moderno feat. Richard Boukas
August 13: Maucha Adnet & Trio (Brazilian Jazz)

In the event of rain, the performance will be held at Caramoor in the covered Reception Tent. All seating (at KMA or Caramoor) is available on a "first come, first served" basis. With a deep contralto voice "as smooth and dark as the richest espresso," award-winning jazz vocalist Alexis Cole has made an impressive impact. The Jazz Times says "Cole's easy sense of swing is strongly reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan," and the Swing Journal raves, "we've been waiting for the next great singer to come along, and finally… Alexis."

A descendant of Jalimady, the inventor of the kora, Suso began his training at the age of eight and has performed throughout Africa and Europe. Free with admission to the grounds

Outdoor Sculpture Tour and Q & A with
Artist Ranjit Bhatnagar [link]

Neuberger Museum, Purchase
The Neuberger Museum of Art will host a docent-guided tour of Stone Song, a new sculpture by Ranjit Bhatnagar, on view on the Purchase College campus. Stone Song is a site-specific work, located at the rear of the Museum, that was made in conjunction with In the Garden of Sonic Delights, an innovative open-air sound art exhibition organized by Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. In creating this sculpture, Bhatnagar, a sound artist who works with technology, language, and found materials to create interactive installations, used the dry stone walling technique that echoes the old stone walls used on the farm that once occupied the land where Purchase College is located today. He included sensors and electronics to create sound in his sculpture. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP requested, please call 914.251.6113 or email.

When he released his debut album, DICE, the parental advisory label read "Warning this album is offensive."
