Kaal Rock Park Concert Series
Do you know where this park is?
A series of three concerts were scheduled in Kaal Rock Park along the southern Poughkeepsie waterfront, September 11, September 25, and October 9, bringing in some very talented musicians for free concerts. These concerts were primarily motivated by the beauty of this space, its proximity to the Hudson River, and an awareness that this park is under-utilized with much potential. Organized by local arts activists (aka "artivists") David Henningsen and Mary Reynolds, with the help of the Public Arts Commission and City Administrator Marc Nelson, music is a great vehicle for bringing people together to see the potential of this space and the value of investments in public art and the value of investments in our City parks.
These concerts complement Mayor Rolison's recent initiative for investment in our City parks, for which significant repairs and upgrades are needed.

Please support this initiative to help the City provide beautiful spaces so we can bring people together to enjoy music in the future.
