Flamenco music and dance to close Summer Concerts on the Hudson 2017
An evening of music and dance with Pedro Cortes’ Flamenco Soul will climax this season’s Summer Concerts on the Hudson, co-sponsored by The Hudson Reporter.
Pedro Cortes was credited by The New Yorker for helping to keep Flamenco alive in New York City. He comes from a family of Spanish Gypsy guitarists and began his studies with his father and the legendary Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. He has had works premiered with the Teatro Albeniz in Madrid and the Carlota Santana Spanish Dance Company at the Joyce Theater in New York. Cortes was commissioned by the Coen Brothers to compose music for their film “Paris Je T'Aime.”
The concert will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. at Lincoln Harbor Park, located just north of the Chart House restaurant on the west bank of the Hudson River in Weehawken. Free parking is available at the Weehawken Recreational Park and also in the parking deck behind 1000 Harbor Boulevard. Please use 1600 Harbor Boulevard for GPS directions.
The summer long series of open air concerts free of charge are presented by The Hudson Riverfront Performing Arts Center, Inc. (HRPAC), a New Jersey not-for-profit. The concerts are family friendly. Limited seating is available; however, audience members are asked to bring a lawn chair or blanket, if possible, and encouraged to picnic on the lawn. A rain date, if needed, will be scheduled for the following night.
