Shereen Pimentel, who played Maria in the recent Broadway revival of West Side Story, will be part of MasterVoices' upcoming outdoor free concert, concluding its 80th anniversary season. 

Led by Artistic Director and Tony winner Ted Sperling, the June 8 evening, entitled Songs for a Summer Night, will be held at the new Waterline Square Park on the Upper West Side. Show time is 7 PM; rain date is June 9 at 7 PM at the same location.

The concert, demonstrating how the sounds of summer delight and inspire, will also feature composer and tenor Tariq Al-Sabir,  the MasterVoices Chorus, and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s. Attendees can expect to hear the world premiere of Al-Sabir's Summers Are Growing Longer, commissioned by MasterVoices; Sperling’s arrangement of Stephen Sondheim’s "Night Music Waltzes" from A Little Night Music; Mendelssohn’s "Scherzo" and "Song with Choir" from his suite of music for A Midsummer Night's Dream; as well as tunes by Ricky Ian GordonStephen Schwartz, Charles StrouseFrank Loesser, and more.

Sperling says, “It has been thrilling to be with a live audience again this season. What a pleasure it will be to share a beautiful June evening with our community as we close our 80th anniversary season with a program that evokes the sounds, smells, and emotions of summer, as imagined by some of our greatest composers, and to hear the contemporary musical ideas of Tariq Al-Sabir inspired by the sounds of summer in New York.”

No reservations are needed for the free concert. A limited number of first-come, first-served seats will be available, and concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs. Visit MasterVoices.org.
