SummerStage is the largest free performing arts festival in New York City. To celebrate its 30th season, SummerStage is showcasing nearly 200 unique artists.

The Chi-Lites
At the forefront of the 70s R&B Chicago scene, The Chi-Lites broke away from the gritty sound associated with the Windy City by creating their very own – smooth and distinct – which put Chicago on the R&B map, and brought the band a string of top ten hits, gold singles, and gold albums. During the 70s, the group released 11 Top Ten R&B singles which ranged from smooth ballads to socially conscious protest songs. In 2000, The Chi-Lites were inducted into the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame, and in 2003, the group was featured in the documentary, Only The Strong Survive, released by Miramax. Their song, “Are You My Woman,” is sampled and featured in the GRAMMY award winning Beyoncé track “Crazy In Love” featuring Jay-Z. The rapper also featured The Chi-Lites’ “That’s How Long I Love You” in his song “December 4,” which hit #1 on Billboard.

Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active, and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

CANCELLED -- Rain date on August 26th, 2015

The life and loves of French pop star Serge Gainsbourg are reimagined by comic book artist Joann Sfar, beginning with his childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris, through his wild and crazy years in the ‘50s and ‘60s as a singer-songwriter and lover of some of the world’s most glamourous women (Bardot, Jane Birkin, beatnik icon Juliette Gréco). The film features many of the musician’s greatest hits, as well a giant puppet alter-ego who personifies his worst proclivities.

As cool breezes blow off the Hudson and the sun sets over the Palisades, enjoy an outdoor concert on Wave Hill's Great Lawn. Each Sunset Wednesday, New York City musicians capture the vibrant colors of summer in performances that feature jazz, popular music, show tunes and original songs. Tonight, the New York City-based Metropolitan Four, already a fan favorite from last year’s Enchanted Wave Hill Weekend, returns for an evening inspired by the beauty and expressivity of music for flutes. The artists— Megan Cardone, Julian Rose, Felipe Tristan and Emily Wespiser—have been collaborating since 2012. M4’s debut CD is scheduled for release in 2016. Visitors may bring a chair or sit on the lawn to enjoy the music. No blankets, please. Free with admission to the grounds.

Pack a picnic, bring a friend, and settle in for a night of premier movies on the pier.

The film will begin when it is dark enough to see the image on the screen which is dependent on the sunset, generally around 8:30 p.m. Seating will open at 6:30, and is first-come first-served. You can reserve chairs for their friends once onsite. We put out chairs (about 250 of them) and they normally fill by 7:30 and ground seating is available in front and behind the chair section. Front ground seating is for blankets/butts on ground (the pier is hard made of pavers) and picnics are welcome if trash is disposed of properly. Dogs are welcome on leash and off chairs. People may bring their own chairs and place them behind our chairs on the dark pavers. There is no seating or standing in the Southern aisle of the pier.

Summer on the Hudson programming is free to the public. Seating is limited, unreserved, and available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning 1-2 hours before the event. If there is heavy rain at the time of the event, the event will be cancelled. Up to the minute cancelation information will be posted on our twitter the Summer On the Hudson's Twitter account, @summeronhudson, and if the event is canceled this event listing will be updated to reflect that (about 2 hours before the event/1 hour before wellness classes). No rain dates are scheduled. If attendance reaches maximum capacity management reserves the right to close participation.

Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.
