  The Music Haven Concert Series presents world-class concerts in Schenectady, NY. All their shows are scheduled to take place in Schenectady's Central Park on the Agnes MacDonald Music Haven Stage – with a rain-site at Proctors in case of inclement weather.

Mona Golub is the Music Haven Concert Series producing artistic director and she joins us to tell us what is left on their schedule for this summer.

 

   The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College will hold their annual Frances Day, a community open house from noon to 5 - Saturday, July 11th - full of art, art-making, food, music, and fun in honor of the museum's namesake.

Frances Young Tang was a wife, mother, and 1961 Skidmore College graduate who died in 1992. In her memory, the Tang family made a substantial donation that led to the Tang Teaching Museum becoming a reality. The museum opened in 2000. Frances Day honors Frances Young Tang's legacy of creativity and philanthropy with a day of free activities for art-lovers of all ages.

To tell us more about Frances Day, we welcome - Ian Berry, Dayton Director of the Tang Teaching Museum; Ginger Ertz, Museum Educator for K-12 and Community Programs; and the Museum Educator for College and Public Programs, Megan Hyde.
