Café Music At Dolphin Announces Performers For June

First Anniversary of Series

Café Music, the Friday night music series at the Dolphin Bookshop, will showcase a diverse line up of new and returning musicians this month. The series began on Friday, June 7, with songwriters Nikki Talley and Rupert Wates, performing in Port Washington for the first time. Talley performs Americana and Folk music with her husband. Based in North Carolina, she was excited to include Dolphin in her northeast tour. Wates is an award winning songwriter who also made his Dolphin debut.

June 14 marks the first anniversary of the music series. Series founder Solomon Hoffman presents an eclectic evening of Classical, Jazz, Musical Theater, and New Compositions featuring many series regulars, including flutists Caroline Sonett, violinist Elizabeth Sun, and vocalists Olivia Harris and Rebekah Lowin. Paul Avolese’s group, Dijon and the Day After will perform a mix of rock covers and original on June 21. The evening will also include a performance by jazz and funk duo Adam Tuch and Noah Milstein, both students at Schreiber High School. June 28 features the local duo, Shir Harmony, presenting a mix of liturgical music and contemporary Jewish songs.

Since June 2012, music has filled the Dolphin Bookshop and Café every Friday at 7 p.m., with performances that are free and open to the community. The series features a wide range of musical styles, including jazz, classical, rock, folk, pop and musical theater. Many of the performers are Port Washington residents, making the series a valuable way for local musicians to share their talents with the community. Plus, the series gives Port residents a place to unwind on a Friday night with live music, and delicious desserts and paninis from the café. Over the past twelve months, the series has featured over 100 musicians in 50 performances.

News

Gould A. ‘Stretch’ Ryder III, accomplished sailor, pilot, businessman, civic leader, and steward of the beautiful waterfront of Port Washington, passed away Oct. 24 at The Amsterdam at Harborside Hospice Center in Port Washington.

Stretch, as he was known to all, was well known as part of the crew on Ted Turner’s “Courageous” when it won the America’s Cup in 1977. Turner stayed in touch and visited Stretch last week.

Stretch’s life was marked by numerous personal contributions and accomplishments.

Parents concerned about classroom sizes spoke up at the Port Washington Board of Education meeting, as the board passed an approval of the larger sizes.

Parents spoke of class sizes at the district’s elementary being in the mid 20s, an amount they felt compromised the quality of their children’s education.

“The board of education changed our children’s education for the worse,” said one mother of larger average class sizes the board had approved last year. The comment drew clapping from the audience.


Sports

The Port Washington Soccer Club has presented Schreiber High School graduate and captain of the Port Washington Blue Knights, Cameron Boroumand, with the annual $1,000 Joe Cohen Scholarship.

The award, which has been presented annually for over 10 years, was established by the Port Washington Soccer Club to honor Joseph Cohen, a gifted athlete who attended college on a soccer scholarship. He went on to achieve outstanding success, first academically, and then in his professional life.  He gave his time fully and with great heart to innumerable charitable endeavors.

The tough and talented Port Washington volleyball team defeated Hicksville at an away game this past Friday in all three sets.

With strong returning players who also play on club teams year round, the Port Washington team plays with a certain level of chemistry. Megan Murphy and Kelly Nardone led the way with 12 assists and Mia Walker had six kills.
