Viva Pavarotti! @ St. John’s University, Marillac Hall
Apr 5 all-day
Viva Pavarotti! @ St. John’s University, Marillac Hall | New York | United States

Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his trademark rich sound as the great male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations which brought him fame beyond measure. While magic was created when Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras met onstage and became the Three Tenors, Pavarotti’s fame hit new heights with his annual Pavarotti and Friends concerts, joining with prominent pop stars such as Liza Minnelli, Stevie Wonder, Bono, and others, to raise the profile of classical music. At this special concert, our tenors sing Nessun Dorma, O Sole Mio, Mamma, as well as popular American standards. Join us in celebrating the superstar tenor and his influence on the music world. $48, $42
Presented at St. John’s University, Marillac Hall, 8000 Utopia Parkway, Jamaica, NY 11439

THE NEW WORLD OF THE NUMBER 7 TRAIN @ Stops along the #7 train | New York | New York | United States

(The Mets are playing at home so the #7 is not affected for the weekend!)

Since 1999, when the Metrocard matured, I have led a tour called The World of the Number 7 Train. This series of six walks and connecting rides along North Queens transportation corridor became my signature tour, focusing on what the #7 train did to and for adjacent neighborhoods since it began service in 1914. So much has changed since the tour began. In the NEW World of the Number 7 Train, walks take place in the Hudson Yards, the Long Island City shoreline, Flushing West, the Iron Triangle, North Corona, and Woodside-Jackson Heights. The routes are all different from the original tour. SO COME AGAIN! Lunch is still in Flushing’s Asian food mecca. Tour fee is $49 and you need to register by check to Jack Eichenbaum, 36-20 Bowne St #6C, Flushing, NY 11354 (Include name(s) and email address(es.) Or pay with PayPal https:geognyc.com/payments/ Queries to jaconet@aol.com
