June 25: Broken Reed Saxophone Quartet

The Broken Reed Saxophone QuartetAngela Ortiz

On Sunday afternoon, June 25 at 2:30 p.m., the Broken Reed Saxophone Quartet, accompanied by vocalist Angela Ortiz, will perform a concert entitled "Mustang Sally: Rock Gets the Blues"in the Parish House of the New Utrecht Reformed Church, 18th Avenue and 84th Street in Bensonhurst. The event, sponsored by the Friends of Historic New Utrecht, is free to the public.

The Brooklyn-based Broken Reed Saxophone Quartet is a jazz ensemble organized by Charley Gerard in 2002. Mr. Gerard is a composer, arranger and author whose arrangements for the group draw on a wide variety of musical genres. Angela Ortiz is a singer and songwriter who performs regularly in New York City as well as in cities across the country.

The 1892 Parish House is part of the landmarked campus of the New Utrecht Reformed Church, home to a congregation organized by Dutch settlers in 1677, which also includes the 1828 Church, now undergoing interior repairs and restoration, and the 1783 New Utrecht Liberty Pole.  he Parish House is at 18th Avenue and 84th Street in Bensonhurst, with bus (B8, B1) and subway (D train) lines nearby.

The Broken Reed concert is one in a series of free concerts and history-related events offered each year by the Friends of Historic New Utrecht. Anyone interested in learning more about the concert and other Friends activities or about New Utrecht's landmarks and its history are invited to contact (718) 256-7173 or mail@historicnewutrecht.org, and to visit www.historicnewutrecht.org or on Facebook: www.facebook.com/FriendsofHistoricNewUtrecht.

The Friends organization's program of free public events is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development, Councilman Vincent Gentile and Councilman Mark Treyger.

Restoration news
Sancturary restoration
As part of the ongoing restoration of the New Utrecht Church, the vaulted ceiling of the sanctuary was removed and completely replaced. Work on the damaged ceiling began in May 2013. Elaborate scaffolding was erected to allow the workmen access to the flat and barrel-vaulted areas of the ceiling. The new ceiling was completed in August 2015 and the scaffolding was removed. The installation and removal of the scaffolding caused extensive damage to the walls which must be repaired and painted. Additional funds are needed to complete repairs to the organ alcove and sanctuary walls. Donations to help with this work can be sent to:
