Tupper Arts postpones remainder of summer bandshell performances

TUPPER LAKE, NY: It is with great sadness that Tupper Arts announces it will be postponing the remainder of its 2020 Summer Sunset Series until 2021. The Tupper Arts Board of Directors made this difficult decision over concerns of creating overcrowding during the current pandemic and other considerations. The series, which takes place at the Tupper Lake Sunset Stage bandshell, has been a popular weekday gathering spot for music and theatre lovers who live in and visit the Tri-Lakes area.

   The Board had already cancelled the July 3 performance of the band Late Earth, as well as Rez Pony, a rock band from the Akwesasne Reservation, who were to have performed on Monday, July 6.  Other performances scheduled in the Series were the Blind Owl Band, the Big Takeover, Spring Street Band, Shakespeare in the Parks, Martin and Kelly, High Peaks Opera, Geo Beat, and Annie and the Hedonists. All of the artists booked for the current season will be asked to be part of the 2021 lineup.
   Tupper Arts also had postponed its 2020 Little Loggers Kids’ Shows. All six of the acts in this series will also be rescheduled for 2021.
   Tupper Arts is currently still going ahead with its arts shows, exhibits, and gift-shop reopening at the Tupper Arts Center, 106 Park Street, with the Board committed to following all guidelines set forth by the State of New York for complying with social distancing, contact tracing, and other measures currently required. A tentative opening date is scheduled for July 15.

   The Tupper Arts Board appreciates the continued support of our Tupper Lake community, our summer visitors, and the Village of Tupper Lake as we make these difficult decisions with the safety and health of our volunteers and concertgoers in mind.
