Join the Huntington Historical Society for an evening of music memorializing Sergei Rachmaninoff's time in Centerport and celebrating his music and contributions to the community's rich cultural history.
The concert begins at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Steinway Gallery, 505 Walt Whitman Road, Melville.
Twelve of the area's best pianists and musicians are donating their time and talent to raise funds for the creation and installation of a historical marker.
The marker will be placed at the location of his summer residence on the Little Neck Peninsula, not far from the Vanderbilt, to raise awareness that the composer summered in this area in the years 1940-41 at the Honeyman Estate overlooking the harbor.
Isabella Eredita-Johnson, director of Northport's Opera Night, is joining the Historical Society to host the benefit concert.
Tickets cost $20. Tickets to the concert may also be purchased on-line at www.HuntingtonHistoricalSociety.org, click on ‘Calendar & Newsletter.’
