2nd ANNUAL FAITH FESTIVAL AT MORGAN PARK; GLEN COVE'S HOUSES OF WORSHIP SHARE THEIR MUSICAL TRADITIONS
On Sunday, July 23, Morgan Park Summer Music Festival presents musical traditions from Glen Cove’s faith community. The concert, which is free to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. in Morgan Park. It is sponsored by the following Golden Benefactors: The Atria Glen Cove, Mickey & Joanne Martone, In Memory of Thomas Salvatore, Marguerite Suozzi and In Memory of Patricia “Pat” Tee.
Glen Cove is blessed with a rich tradition of religious and spiritual organizations and music plays an important role in the practice of these faiths. Members from seven of Glen Cove’s houses of worship have accepted Morgan Park Summer Music Festival's invitation to offer a glimpse of these traditions of faith in our community. Participants include, The Intercession of the Holy Virgin Russian Orthodox Choir, St. Rocco’s Church, North Country Reform Temple Choir, Gurduara Muta Sahib Kaur Sikh Temple, Calvary AME Church, St. Hyacinth’s Church, First Baptist Church and First Presbyterian Church. There will be hymns sung in Polish, Russian, Hebrew and English, as well as an instrumental presentation by the Sikh Temple.
Come on down to Morgan Park and enjoy this very special evening of music under the stars. Bring a blanket or chairs and picnic if you wish. Children are welcome. Morgan Park is located on Germaine Street at the end of Landing Road in Glen Cove. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in St. Patrick’s Parish Hall, Pearsall Avenue, Glen Cove.
