Letters: Free concerts at Pettoranello Gardens a success

On behalf of the Princeton Recreation Commission, I would like to thank Steve Allen and Curtis Webster of Blue Curtain Productions for their tireless efforts in bringing world-class musicians to Princeton for free concerts at the Pettoranello Gardens (Community Park North) Amphitheater. This summer the crowd filled the venue to see two artists, Mystic Bowie and Sasha Masakowski on July 15, and for July 22 the concert featured Betsyada and Sammy Figueroa. Unfortunately rain forced the cancellation of the July 22 show but many people turned out just for a chance to meet the artists anyway.

The partnership between the Recreation Commission and Blue Curtain continues to be a fruitful one for the community. Blue Curtain concerts have become a staple of summer entertainment and as always the concerts remain free to all to enjoy.

Blue Curtain has consistently attracted world-class artists to our tiny amphitheater year after year, with little or no fanfare for their efforts. On behalf of the Recreation Commission and my colleagues, I sincerely thank Steve, Curtis and the entire Blue Curtain Productions team.

Ben Stentz
Executive Director of Recreation
