Swing, jazz, Motown, classical opera, country and western, hip hop, gospel: The sound of music is heard along the Sound Shore every summer as the New Rochelle Council on the Arts, in partnership with the New Rochelle Dept. of Parks and Recreation, presents its free Summer Sounds Concert Series at the Hudson Park Bandshell.
VISUAL ARTS AT CITY HALL Rotunda Gallery
The Rotunda Gallery in City Hall was created in 2012. The idea came from NRCA, which recognized the need for more public exhibition space in the city, and it received enthusiastic support from Mayor Noam Bramson and City Manager Charles Strome. The Rotunda Gallery creates opportunities for a broad range of visual arts to be seen on a regular basis, and encourages the public to visit City Hall.
The Rotunda Gallery is located at 515 North Avenue. Both City Hall and the Rotunda Gallery are public spaces that are accessible to all during business hours, between 8:30 am and 4 pm, Mondays through Fridays. Please call 914-654-2000 with inquiries about exceptions or changes.
NRCA Board member Linda Tarrant-Reid is the chairman of the Rotunda Gallery Committee, which consists of NRCA members who determine the themes of the exhibits, issue Calls for Artists, hang the submitted works and host receptions.
