Neil Alexander presents the Annual Winter Solstice Celebration at the Turning Point Restaurant on Sunday December 12th at 7:30 PM. Admission is $15.The winter solstice was the most important date on ancient calendars. Prehistoric monuments like Stonehenge and Newgrange in Ireland indicate the day with remarkable precision. This performance has become a yearly tradition for Pianist & Synthesist Neil Alexander, who will be premiering his new quartet featuring longtime friend & Turning Point Regular Bob Meyer on drums, bass virtuoso James Cammack (Ahamd Jamal) on both electric & acoustic bass and young saxophone whiz Steve Frieder. As usual, we are encouraging everyone to bring a canned food donation for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley.
The Turning Point Restaurant, located at 468 Piermont Avenue in the tiny Hudson River town of Piermont NY, is a nationally famous venue well known for bringing World Class artists to an intimate local setting. The restaurant provides a diverse menu of wonderful food. There’s something for everyone.
Traditionally, the Solstice is a time of families and neighborhoods, of sharing and coming together. Come celebrate with us and help chase away the darkness and welcome back the sun.
