Beluga Whales Near Long Island’s North Fork

June 1st, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Beluga Whales near Long IslandDid you hear about the sighting of three beluga whales near Long Island’s North Fork last week? Pretty exciting stuff – but we see all kinds of marine life on the North Fork!

Beluga whales primarily live in arctic waters, so seeing them this far down the Atlantic coast is a rarity. There is a small community of beluga whales that call the St. Lawrence River in Quebec, Canada home, though. There have also been several sightings of beluga whales off the Maine coast and as far south as southern New Jersey over the last decade.

Tour Peconic Bay Harbor in Greenport's Solar-Powered GloryTour Peconic Bay Harbor in Glory … Greenport’s own, fume-free, virtually silent, environmentally-friendly, solar-powered, electric Fantail launch named Glory, that is!

Glory is a 1990 reproduction of a 30 foot Fantail launch, a style of craft popularized during the late 1800’s as advances in steam, gasoline, naptha, and electric-power allowed for the creation of small power boats. Originally built by the ELCO company, Fantail launches were quite popular with both the public and luminaries of the time like J.P. Morgan, and the Tsar of Russia.

April 25th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Railroad Museum of Long IslandTrain fans and history buffs alike will enjoy a visit to either branch (or both!) of the Railroad Museum of Long Island, located in Greenport and Riverhead, NY.

It’s natural that Greenport host a branch of the Railroad Museum of Long Island as Greenport is the reason the Long Island Railroad was built in the first place! While having a railroad on Long Island would have happened sooner or later, early Greenport’s buzz of commerce made the inevitability that much more of a going concern.

Greenport to Host Tall Ships of America 2015

April 11th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Tall Ships of America 2015

History comes to life with three masts and a crows nest at Long Island’s Greenport Village this year with a 4th of July visit from the Tall Ships of America 2015!

Greenport village has a long and storied history, having first been settled in the 1600’s to become a major whaling and shipbuilding port. Then came the fishing and huge oyster industries which brought the railroad and, consequently, over-fishing. Greenport, like many ports, made changes to adapt and improve itself, becoming a major destination for thousands of visitors throughout the year.

Thus, it should come as no surprise that Greenport would have the honor of playing host to the Tall Ships of America 2015 – and not on just any date but on Independence Day, July 4th, 2015!

Au Courant Quartet In Greenport

March 7th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Au Courant QuartetThe 2nd annual Great Music Sunday concert brings the Au Courant Quartet, four Juilliard musicians, to Greenport on Sunday, March 22, 2015!

The mission of the Great Music Sunday series, which began in 2014, is to introduce audiences to up-and-coming musical professionals, promote musical expression, and to inspire local, musical youth to greater performance heights – and the inclusion of the Au Courant Quartet for the second year goes a long way towards continuing to fulfill that goal.

The Au Courant Quartet plans to present Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 12 in F Major and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 2 in E minor to the Great Music Sunday concert audience; two of the most popular selections from the chamber music repertoire.

After the performance, members of the Au Courant Quartet will engage the audience in a question and answer session, giving audience members an opportunity to gain deeper insight into the performers as musicians and how music has influenced their lives.

Four accomplished alumni of New York city’s famous Juilliard School, the Au Courant Quartet is made up of Kobi Malkin on violin, Sofia Nowik on cello, Daniel Kim on viola, and Matous Michal also on violin.

Kobi Malkin, violinist from Israel, has received the prestigious Ilona Kornhauser prize and is a fellow in Ensemble ACJW, a joint program of Carnegie Hall, the Juilliard School and the Weill Music Institute.

Cellist Sofia Nowik teaches cello through a nonprofit music-mentoring program in New York City called Opportunity Music and is also on the faculty at the Great Neck Music Conservatory.

Daniel Kim, violist, has received an impressive number of honors and awards, including the the Neale-Silva Young Artist Competition, Tanglewood Music Center Maurice Schwartz Prize, the UW-Madison concerto competition, the Aspen Festival Orchestral String Fellowship, the UW School of Music Alumni Association scholarship, and the Kato Perlman scholarship. He was on the faculty at the Northern Lights Chamber Music Institute, and has led orchestra sectionals for the Juilliard Pre-College Division.

Czech violinist Matous Michal is considered one of the most promising musicians of his generation. Recipient of numerous awards and prizes as a performer and interpreter of the chamber genre, Matous regularly appearing as a soloist with major orchestras and conductors, including James Levine and Kurt Masur.
