It’s time to celebrate! Brooklyn, that
is. The borough’s 28th annual six-week arts extravaganza kicks
off this Thursday with Maceo Parker (pictured), one of the original
architects of funk.
Big-name acts include Los Lonely Boys (June 22), Savion Glover (June 24), TV on the Radio (June 30), Toshi Reagon (July 8), Yo La Tengo (July 13), and Philip Glass and Kronos Quartet (July 27).
"Somehow Celebrate Brooklyn gets better every year," said Borough President Marty Markowitz. "For Brooklynites like me, who summer here, Celebrate Brooklyn is always music to our ears."
That’s a generous comment from Markowitz, considering his own concert series kicks off in July.
Maceo Parker performs June 15 at 8 pm. All performances are at the Bandshell in Prospect Park (enter at Ninth Street and Prospect Park West). For information, call (718) 855-7882 or visit www.celebr
