Strings for Stewart Park features an eclectic blend of fiddle and violin music with guitar, mandolin and bass accompaniment. Performers include Cornell's Ariana Kim, Ithaca College's Susan Waterbury, and Ithaca musicians Judy Hyman, Tim Ball, Dave Davies, and Rick Manning. Will Russell will be doing the sound engineering and La Tourelle will host this special event.
The concert supports Friends of Stewart Park and its plans to recreate the historic performance venue in Stewart Park between the Picnic 'Large' Pavilion and the Wharton Studio/Park Maintenance Building. In the early days of Renwick Park and Stewart Park there was a beautiful bandshell in this location that hosted well-attended, nightly summer concerts, often featuring the renowned Paddy Conway Orchestra. FSP would like to create this Renwick Performance Plaza to replace the existing asphalt parking lot along with an Overlook of Cayuga Lake. Join us for the fun fiddle cabaret and support the restoration of your lakefront gem - Stewart Park.
