WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that music

Festival; the festival will celebrate 60 years of free concerts in the

celebrated on Sunday, July 7, 2019; and

WHEREAS, In 1959, Mayor Joseph A. Suozzi, Laura Parsons Pratt and
others established the Morgan Park Summer Music Festival to present free
concerts in the park on summer weekends; it has done so without
interruption since its inception 60 years ago and is now one of the
oldest continuously operated arts organizations on Long Island; and

WHEREAS, Morgan Park was dedicated in 1932 to the City of Glen Cove
and the Village of Locust Valley by Glen Cove resident J.P. Morgan, and

a program by The Little Orchestra Society; by 1982, the Morgan Park

brought to Glen Cove such stars as Dave Brubeck, Shirley Verrett, Lionel
Hampton, Sarah Vaughan, Maxine Sullivan, Virgil Fox and Marion
McPartland, as well as the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy Concert Bands; and

WHEREAS, As their success grew, so did the size of the performances,
and it became evident that there was a need for a larger stage in the
Park; led by the tireless efforts of Marguerite Suozzi and Nancy
Epstein, the Morgan Park Summer Music Festival worked for five years to
raise the funds necessary to construct a beautiful permanent stage in
Morgan Park; and

WHEREAS, The Morgan Park Summer Music Festival gave the stage to the
City of Glen Cove so it could be used by many groups throughout the
season to provide live entertainment to the public; and

WHEREAS, Another important part of the Festival's ongoing mission is
to support and encourage young musicians; for 45 years, the Morgan Park
Summer Music Festival sponsored the Young Performers Competition,
providing financial awards to audition winners and an opportunity to
perform at their own summer concert; and

WHEREAS, In 2019, in lieu of the competition, the Morgan Park Summer
Music Festival collaborated with the Nassau Music Educators Association
to provide a scholarship to a student who plans to further his/her
musical studies; and

WHEREAS, The Morgan Park Summer Music Festival is supported solely
by donations from the community; the Board and volunteers have devoted
countless hours of their time and talent to assure the continued success
of the Festival for the past 60 years; and

WHEREAS, More than 4,000 people each year enjoy the musical programs
the Morgan Park Summer Music Festival brings to the Park; these programs
consist of music of all artistic and cultural styles, representing the
varied tastes and traditions of the uniquely diverse community; and

WHEREAS, The success of the Morgan Park Summer Music Festival is in
direct correlation to the efforts of its Board President Thomas Suozzi,
as well as its Executive Board and numerous volunteers, whose
involvement is, and always has been, characterized by an impressive
commitment, an unbridled enthusiasm, and an uncompromising standard of
excellence in all endeavors on behalf of the festival and the community
it serves; and

WHEREAS, The treasured values of family unity and wholesome
entertainment for all ages are reflected in the Morgan Park Summer Music
Festival, an event which helps to foster community spirit and
cooperation and preserves the beliefs, ideals and values upon which this
great State and Nation were founded; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Morgan Park Summer Music
Festival; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to Thomas Suozzi, Board President, Morgan Park Summer Music

much adversity in the mid-1980s, and today, Lake Placid is recognized as
one of the premier stops on the nation's hunter-jumper horse show
circuit; and

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body that when
establishments of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our
attention, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens
of this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
