‘Flow’ with Friends of Cedarmere PHOTO COURTESY OF FRIENDSOFCEDARMERE.ORG

O

n Sunday, July 15, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., The Friends of Cedarmere present FLOW performances with the acclaimed Dance Visions NY company, under the direction of Beth Jucovy, celebrating the legacy of American choreographer, Isadora Duncan. In addition to important works from Duncan’s repertoire, which enlarged the field of expression in dance, the evening’s program features more recent work by Jucovy. An element characteristic of both artists is a dynamic principle known in the Duncan tradition as “flow,” from which the event takes its name. (The term is used in psychology to describe states of optimal creativity, and serves in other practices, such as yoga, to signify balance.) Duncan’s pioneering work is a full-

on engagement with nature, space and emotion. FLOW will examine these relationships beginning with more intimate works, danced to live piano accompaniment in the beautiful Great Room at Cedarmere. The flower borders of the Sunken Garden will frame more dramatic storyline dances. And finally, as the sun slowly sets, Ms. Jucovy has prepared a veritable banquet of dances in the Lawn Amphitheater, taking us beyond the visual horizon of Hempstead Harbor into the deep serenity of a summer night. This “moveable feast” involves a bit of self-paced travel: from the handsome interiors of William Cullen Bryant’s famous house, through the historic formal gardens, and down a gentle slope, past a stand of apple trees, towards the water.

Seating will be provided outdoors, but it is strongly advised to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Seating in the Great Room is limited to 45 at any time, and audience members are encouraged to kindly offer their seats to others. Parking is available in two lots, to the north and south of the Main House, at 225 Bryant Ave. in Roslyn Harbor. Street parking is permitted, and handicapped spaces are available in the lot directly in front of the House. Tickets may be purchased online at www.FriendsofCedarmere.org, or held for payment at the door by calling (516) 544-3944. Prices are $15, $10 for Seniors and Students (with ID), and Free for Children under 12. The show begins promptly at 7 p.m., flowing on til dusk, around 8:30. As ever… See you at Cedarmere!

Drizzle of doubt gives way to concert BY JA N E LL E C L AUS E N With steady rain came a drizzle of doubt in the early evening about whether or not the July 3 show in the Great Neck Plaza’s summer concert series could go on. Mayor Jean Celender said it had been an open question whether the concert, featuring Great Neck Plaza concert series veterans Nina Et Cetera, was possible due to the rain and the fact they would not have access to the Great Neck Social Center that night. “This is what’s so hard about summer concert series – that you have to deal with the weather and because it’s the day before the holiday, we would’ve had to call the show even earlier,” Celender said. “And at 1:30 today it didn’t even look like it was gonna’ rain. You just never know where the thunderstorms are going to pop up.” But the weather cooperated. Rain gave way to clouds hanging over Firefighters’ Park on Grace Avenue, where attendance peaked at over 100 people to watch Nina Romano and Tim Smith perform. People filled most of the seats lined up in front of the illuminated gazebo, which was surrounded by eight American flags. Others also hung around the edge of the park, walked through it, or rested on benches. The folk duo’s music was a mix of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, poet Carl Sandburg, and other Americana clas-

sics, featuring guitar, soulful singing and a dash of harmonica that echoed down to Bond Street. “What could be more Americana than Independence Day?” Celender said. The summer concert series, presented by the Village of Great Neck Plaza in cooperation with the Great Neck Park District, Great Neck Social Center and a number of other sponsors and supporters, holds concerts every Tuesday night at 8 p.m. until Aug. 28. The next show will take place on Tuesday, July 10, with David Saul & the Electric Dudes. Following that will be Blue Bayou, a Linda Ronstadt tribute band, on July 17, Wayne Holmes, a Ray Charles impersonator, on July 24, and Ricky Pen on July 31. Come Aug. 7, Pamela Levy will perform “Opera Under the Stars.” Then, on Aug. 14, the Liverpool Shuffle will bring “Beatles Mania” to Grace Avenue Park. Aug. 21 will feature Phil Costa and The Something Special Big Band, inviting attendees to “swing into summer.” The McLean Avenue Band will round off the summer concert series on Aug. 28. “We’re three for three,” Celender said. Usually, in the event of inclement weather, the Great Neck Social Center at 80 Grace Avenue would be used as an indoor concert hall. Additionally, the first of the village’s four promenades will take place on Sunday, July 15, with a rain date of July 16.

DECONSTRUCTING THE BIRTH OF THE BEATLES

THE BOOKSHOP

Beatles expert Scott Freiman explores the path that brought four Liverpool teenagers to superstardom as The Beatles — from their early days as the Quarrymen to their transformation in Hamburg — and the many characters who helped them on their journey.

England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. Based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel and directed by Isabel Coixet (Learning to Drive), The Bookshop is an elegant yet incisive rendering of personal resolve, tested in the battle for the soul of a community.

Kaplan, Phillips clash on abortion reform Continued from Page 6 abortions, and allowing non-doctors to perform abortions, which could jeopardize a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health.â&#x20AC;? Chelsea Polis, an epidemiologist whose work involves improving global sexual and reproductive health, noted on Twitter that a National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine report found that physicians and advanced practice clinicians can safely and eďŹ&#x20AC;ectively provide mediation and aspiration abortion. The current New York State law was written in 1970, three years before the Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade. New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pre-dating law is inconsistent with the rights granted under the federal decision. With the announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy retiring from the court, and an expected conservative appointment from President Donald Trump, Roe v. Wade could be overturned. If overturned, abortion rights are granted by individual states â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an outcome that Kaplan said could â&#x20AC;&#x153;bring us back to the dark ages.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I promise you that if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m elected I will make New York a state where women are safe and privacy is respected,â&#x20AC;? Kaplan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś No one but women and doctors will have the â&#x20AC;Ś choice to make these deeply personal and private decisionsâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? If passed, the bill would repeal criminal abortion statutes and create a new section of public health law to regulate abortion. It would also include exceptions to abortion law to protect a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health and for instances of fetal nonviability, in some cases into the third trimester. The bill would also expand the current law to allow nurse practitioners, physiciansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; assistants and other health care professions to provide abortion services. Democrats tried getting a vote on the Reproductive Health Act near the end of the session by attaching it, along with the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, as hostile amendments to another bill. The GOP had a slim one person majority over the Democrats in the Senate after all but one in a group of Democrats caucusing with the Republicans, under the title Independent Democratic Conference, reuniďŹ ed with the members of their elected parties. State Sen. Thomas Croci, a Republican, left at the end of the session when he was called for Navy duty, leaving the Senate split 31-31 between Democrats and Republicans. The legislative session ultimately ended without a vote on either bill. The November election could give Democrats control of the Senate, allowing for the passage of the Reproductive

Health Act and other bills the Republicans have not brought to ďŹ&#x201A;oor votes for years. Christensen also called out â&#x20AC;&#x153;moderate state senatorsâ&#x20AC;? who she said are â&#x20AC;&#x153;pro-choice during election years.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are happy to stand with Planned Parenthood because they know a majority of New Yorkers support prochoice agenda, but when given a real chance to stand with women in this state, where are they?â&#x20AC;? Christensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take a vote and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking a convenient bathroom break.â&#x20AC;? Christensen said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s met with Phillipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; oďŹ&#x192;ce, and her husband has met with the state Senator herself. Marschall said he went up to Albany as part of the National Institute for Reproductive Health Day of Action and met with a number of senators, including Phillips. Along with members from the National Institute and Civil Liberties Union, Marschall said he spoke broadly about the bill. He also shared his own story, he said. Marschall said Phillips implied she was unaware there was a bill to address the issue, which she said seems unlikely given the fact that he, and other advocacy groups, had met with her oďŹ&#x192;ce or her personally before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was frustrating because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly legislation that has been around Albany for a while,â&#x20AC;? Marschall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś But she sort of kept steering the conversation away from it and seemed liked she was avoiding being pinned down to a stance on it.â&#x20AC;? Kaplan was joined by her fellow North Hempstead Town Board members Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Councilman Peter Zuckerman, Clerk Wayne Wink and Receiver of Taxes Charles Berman, in showing support for the bill at the rally. Hempstead Town Clerk Sylvia Cabana also came out to voice her support. Another Democratic Senate candidate, Kathleen Cleary who will face Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan for his 2nd District seat in November, also came to Kaplanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rally to voice her support for the bill. Christensen is urging voters to take a moment and learn where a candidate stands on abortion reform â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with pregnant people or anti-choice ideologues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite what many in Albany seem to think politics is not a game for most New Yorkers, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal,â&#x20AC;? Christensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about whether government is with you or against you on the hardest days of your life.â&#x20AC;?
