On Tuesday, August 2, the Mostly Music Festival is thrilled to present the nationally acclaimed and phenomenally talented composer/lyricist and producer Neil Berg who, with the actress/singer Rita Harvey, will bring the sounds of Broadway to Nyack!
In addition to his vast musical gifts and accomplishments, Neil is a committed, contributing member of the larger community. In May of 2012, Neil was awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor for his artistry and dedication to community service, including helping to raise over $20 million dollars for the homeless youth at Covenant House with his Broadway Concerts. Neil was also honored with the Distinguished Citizen’s Award, along with Academy Award Winning actress Ellen Burstyn, by The Rockland Family Shelter, for his efforts on behalf of abused women. Neil was also honored in 2001 as The American Red Cross Man of the Year, and was honored again in 2003 by The United Hospice Foundation. In 2008, Neil was awarded Artist of the Year by the Arts Council of Rockland County.
Come join us at 7:30 PM at Memorial Park for this special evening sponsored by the Friends of the Nyacks and the Village of Nyack!
