A Community Salute At SCC

authorStaff Writer on Sep 14, 2020

In lieu of its annual gala, on Saturday, September 26, at 7 p.m., the Southampton Cultural Center (SCC) will host a free online event “A Salute to Community Heroes,” a montage of SCC performances celebrating dedication and courage.

“Instead of hosting a gala and ask for support,” said Stan Glinka, SCC co-chair, “we decided to host an event to give back to our community and its heroes who have worked so tirelessly.”

The virtual event is in recognition of the courage and commitment of the first responders, nurses, doctors and other essential workers who bravely helped our community during and through the worst of the COVID crisis this year. Popular local on-air personality Bonnie Grice will be the emcee of the event, which will feature a series of performances by artists who are part of the SCC’s most popular programs.

Offerings will include highlights from Center Stage Concerts with numbers from “Dear Evan Hanson,” “A Chorus Line,” “Cabaret” and “Phantom of the Opera” with Ava Bianchi, Jennifer DeMeo, Darren Ottati and Bobby Peterson; a performance by award-winning pianist Nathan Lee showcasing the classical Rising Stars Piano Series; a sample of SCC’s dance programs including lively Cuban salsa; a performance by the East End Youth Quartet, a group of talented teen musicians who have participated in the annual Southampton Strings Festival for many years; a taste of Boots on the Ground Theater’s historical theater performances including “The Miracle Worker,” “The Red Badge of Courage” and “Sherlock’s Secret Life”; and South Fork Performing Arts theater productions for children and teens including “Freaky Friday” and “Frozen.”

Brief remarks will be made on behalf of the SCC by board members and co-chairs Craig Ruhling and Stan Glinka, and executive director, Kirsten Lonnie. Tickets are free. For more information, visit scc-arts.org.
