See you in 2018!!!

    Dear Friends & Neighbors,

    On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Fire Island Pines Arts Project (FIPAP), I want to extend my sincere thanks for making our 2017 summer season so successful.

    We began the season with another return of Broadway Bares, our collaborative effort with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.  Everyone enjoys seeing those hot chorus boys and girls “bare” it in the Pines.

    We followed this with our Unplugged Series of three performances – a string quartet in association with Glencourse Music, Juahn Cabrera, and Met Singer Michelle T. Bradley.  Our intimate performances have garnered quite an audience and become a popular addition to our schedule.

    This summer marked our 16th Biennial Art Show.  Twenty-four artists showcased and sold their work on the deck of Whyte Hall.

    We welcomed author Paul Freedman who discussed his book “10 Restauarnts That Changed America”.  Caterer Billy Carroll helped make the event delicious with his take on food items from the ten restaurants.

    And finally, our acclaimed Labor Day Weekend production of Sondheim On Sondheim.

    FIPAP is always looking for volunteers to help with our many projects.  There are many behind-the-scenes tasks like ticket selling, helping out at Whyte Hall with the show, or just cleaning up after one of our events.  If you would like to get involved, please visit our website at fipap.org for more information.

    FIPAP is proud to be a supporter of Whyte Hall.

    I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Ken Pollard and Dave Anderson at Whyte Hall for their extra special effort in making FIPAP’s season a success.

    Enjoy your winter.  See you for our Summer 2018 Season!!

    Best wishes,

    Steven Alan Black, President
