Join Corona Youth Music Project (CYMP or Núcleo Corona) for their debut concert at Socrates!

Started in 2010, CYMP is a tuition-free music education program that promotes social inclusion in NYC. It follows the philosophy of El Sistema, a movement of social action through music that started in Venezuela in 1975: every child has the right to excel as a member of a musical ensemble.

The project emphasizes four basic values: striving for artistic excellence is a tool to learn discipline and commitment; work in a safe and joyful environment engages deeper learning; music has to be accessible without any discrimination, and participating in large ensembles such as symphony orchestras and choirs enables a stronger sense of community, pride and solidarity.

Ray Charles sang “The night time is the right time to be with the one you love”. He was right, especially if the ones you love have six or four legs. Most forest animals work the night shift, and on a summer night, Alley Pond Park’s forest is a busy place as great-horned owls, southern flying squirrels, gray tree frogs, and camel crickets, katydids, and myriad other insects perform their nocturnal routine. Join famed naturalist Mike Feller as he uses an ultraviolet light, moth “sugar”, and other tricks of the trade to attract and reveal the nighttime forest wildlife.

Note: Insects, including mosquitos, are active at night. Dress appropriately. Wear long pants and closed-toed shoes with socks – and use an insect repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, or lemon eucalyptus oil.

A new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator -- a wildly imaginative 7-year-old named Tim. The most unusual Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) arrives at Tim's home in a taxi, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission, and only he can help thwart a dastardly plot that involves an epic battle between puppies and babies.

About Free Community Rowing
The Community Rows are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands. Visit the Village Community Boathouse's website for more information and photos!

About Village Community Boathouse
Village Community Boathouse is a 501(c)(3) non-profit run by volunteers, based on the south side of Pier 40 on the Hudson River. While our community rowing programs are free, our facilities, boats and equipment require regular upkeep and repair. Your donations make our program possible.
