0

The Long Island Music Hall of Fame (LIMHOF) will present a special family holiday concert on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. at The Space at Westbury Theater in Westbury. This family-friendly event will feature performances from LIMHOF Inductees and friends, as well as students from six high schools that were recognized earlier this year for their music programs by The Long Island Music Hall of Fame.

“We are excited to bring sounds of the season and of Long Island together at the very special concert,” said Ernie Canadeo, chairman of the LIMHOF Board. “Those that attend are in for an amazing show. The talent we have on the island is to be celebrated and the money raised at this concert goes to our music scholarship program. This year we handed out a dozen scholarships to our “Class of 2019.” 

This concert will also be the premier launch event for the new Long Island Hall of Fame Mobile Museum, giving the public and attendees an exclusive first look at the interior of the 38-foot Winnebago converted into LIMHOF’s Mobile Museum, a tour bus that honors the 100-plus Long Island inductees into the Hall. All concertgoers will have access to the bus in front of the theater, before and after the concert.

The first Mobile Museum exhibit is called “On The Record” and includes videos, memorabilia and exhibits that showcase the Long Island Hall of Fame’s inductees and takes visitors on an exciting journey through the music history of Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Most importantly, the Mobile Museum will be used as an educational tool for Long Island students and is available to visit the more than 100 school districts across the Island, including low- to moderate-income areas that may not have the means to travel to a museum.

General admission tickets are $15, with $25 VIP seats. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and at The Space box office. You can also receive a complimentary ticket as a gift, with a donation to the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. For more information, visit www.limusichalloffame.org.
