Legislator Birnbaum Joins Great Neck Community Band


Nassau County Legislator Ellen W. Birnbaum (D-Great Neck) is joining the Great Neck Rotary Community Band as a flutist for the 20th installment of their annual summer concert series. Birnbaum has performed in the band each year since it was started more than 20 years ago by Maestro Michael Flamhaft.

The three-concert series, which began on Wednesday, June 14, features patriotic standards, showtunes and classical pieces blended with more light-hearted and whimsical selections. Upcoming performances scheduled for July 28 will be staged at the Village Green (located on Middle Neck Road between Beach Road and Arrandale Avenue in Great Neck). Showtime is 7:30 p.m.

“After COVID-19 forced us to go on hiatus last year, the Great Neck Rotary Community Band’s return to the concert stage has been especially gratifying,” Birnbaum said. “I hope you will join us with your family and friends for some great music under the stars at the Great Neck Village Green.”

To best enjoy these free community concerts, attendees are asked to bring their own chairs. For additional information, contact the Great Neck Rotary at rotaryclubofgreatneck@aol.com.
