Beacons of Music Kick-Off Party Saturday Afternoon, April 14

Garrison’s Ben Neill to perform 

From April 14 through August 26, a very unique musical “performance” will be held in Beacon.  The “club” is the side of an old factory building and the 28 musical artists will be arriving as striking seven-foot tall photographic portraits in black and white to sit in the windows of the building.  These artists live or play regularly in Beacon, and for this summer will be celebrated as a part of the Hudson Valley’s Beacons of Music. The project will be located at the Roundhouse at Beacon Falls, 2 East Main Street.

The wall of musicians will be christened on Saturday, April 14 with a Kick-Off Party in front of the building featuring two music stages and performances by several of the honored artists, from 1 until 6, with a rain date on Sunday, April 15.  A wide variety of styles will be performed celebrating the diversity of genres and the range of expressions the world of music has to offer. Here’s the lineup:

1 p.m. – The Music Ministry of Tabernacle of Christ, Jack Maldonado, director – praise music
