Tony Orlando to Headline Senator Jeff Klein's Summer Concert Series

 

    Senator Jeffrey D. Klein, (D-Bronx/Westchester), announces that singer Tony Orlando will be the headliner for his 2011 Summertime Symphonies.

     

    These free concerts, which will be held from Aug. 2 to August 30, have become a summertime tradition to Bronx and Westchester residents.

     

    I am proud to have Tony Orlando, as well as the other great performers, take part in this year's Summertime Symphonies,” Senator Klein said. “If you're in the area, come on down and join us for these great, family friendly, events.”

     

    The Bronx Council of the Arts and Arts Westchester are also co-sponsoring the concert series.

     

    Tony Orlando, the winner of three American Music Awards and a People's Choice Award, will be playing the Aug. 30 show at Loreto Park in Morris Park. He is best known for his hits, “Knock Three Times,” “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” and “Sweet Gypsy Rose.”
