2022 Summer Concert Series!

Friday, July 1, 2022 at 7:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

A Fantastic Line Up

Our Annual July Summer Concert Series returns with a fantastic diverse lineup, starting July 1 with headliner, Tito Puente Jr!  **See below for the special "front row" tickets available for this concert that are being sold to help us rebuild our stage! 


These outdoor concerts take place outside on our newly landscaped concert lawn thanks to the generosity of Henry and Julie Boyd and family. All these events are made possible by the many sponsors who support us, so we ask that you support their businesses. All concerts in this series are on Fridays in July and start at 7 PM and go on rain or shine. (We move inside if necessary.)

The concerts are offered on a pay-as-you-wish.**  All are welcome to bring lawn chairs, food and beverages. Limited refreshments will be available as well.



This year’s concerts herald a newly landscaped concert lawn thanks to Julie and Henry Boyd and family. It has magically transformed our humble area by Lake Carmel, with a level lush lawn, and more room for our audience and our stage. Wait till you see it!

However, in taking down our previous stage, we discovered that it was simply not reusable and as a result we are building a new stage. This has been an unexpected expense for us, which on top of the years of Covid, puts us in the position of asking our audience for a special stage rebuilding ticket contribution.


  • For the Tito Puente Jr. concert, we are putting aside tickets as special “Special Evening” tickets at $40 which are reserved seats in Rows 1 & 2.
  • Or, you can also support us with “Friend of Summer Concert Series” tickets at $25 which provides seats in Rows 3-10 close to the stage on either side of the dance floor. You can buy here!


In addition if we do have to move the concert inside because of rain, you will be guaranteed a spot inside.

Overall, admission will remain on a “pay what you wish” allowing anyone to come and enjoy this and all the other concert evenings.


We hope to raise enough funds to pay for the rebuilding of the stage. Please help us by buying these special supporter tickets!

These concerts are made possible by our supporters and in part through the Putnam Arts Council's Arts Link Grant Program with Public Funds provided from the Putnam Count and through the New York State Council on the Arts with support from the Governor's office and the NY State Legislature.
