Concert series to return!


This year, the Moriches Chamber of Commerce will again be hosting their summer concert series on the lawn at Clayton Huey Elementary, and this year, at Sailors Park in East Moriches, too.

Last year, attendance was high and everyone had a great time, said president Jackie Osborne. “Many people enjoyed our concerts so much last year and asked us to add a few more dates,” said chamber president Jackie Osborne. 

The series is continually made possible with the generous donation from Jim Mazzarella, Suffolk County Legislature and Center Moriches Library.

“We were able to add three more concerts,” Osborne said of the support.

“These concerts are a great way to enjoy our beautiful summer nights listening to music and being with family. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy!”

This year’s series will run this July and August. Dates include July 6 and 20; Aug. 3, 17, and 31 at Clayton Huey; and July 27 and Aug. 10 at Sailor Park. All performances will be from 7 to 9 p.m.

The chamber is currently seeking sponsorship opportunities from local businesses. Lawn signs for sponsors will be posted on the schoolgrounds during the performances.
For a $100, new sponsors will have their lawn sign posted for each of the seven performances, reaching not only the attendees, but car traffic passing by the school during the concerts. Sponsors from last year will only pay $75 as they will reuse last year’s sign.

The funds received from the sponsorships help the chamber to offset some of the costs of the performers and the advertising/marketing expenses to make the concert series a success.

The chamber suggests participants bring chairs and/or a blanket for seating on the grass and to dress appropriately for an evening outdoors.

This is a free event for the community; attendees should bring a blanket, lawn chairs, and snacks.  No alcohol.
