Moonalice Band, Plus ‘Field Of Dreams’
Featured Saturday In Lakefront Park
COOPERSTOWN – It’s no Boston Pops, Otsego 2000 Executive Director Ellen Pope acknowledged to the Village Board last evening, but her organization is partnering with Glimmerglass Film Days, Brewery Ommegang and the Cooperstown Chamber to try to capture a little bit of that sizzle.
This coming Saturday, the four organizations — with the trustees’ approval — are planning a free evening of movie and music in Lakefront Park.
7-9 p.m., Moonalice, a band from San Francisco which was in the area because it expected to play in the now-cancelled Hall of Fame 75th anniversary concert, will perform original material and several covers in an “extended free-form jam.”
At 9 p.m., “Cinema Under the Stars” will screen Kevin Costner’s baseball classic, “Field of Dreams.” The screen, borrowed from the Clark Sports Center, will back up on Otsego Lake, providing a panoramic backdrop to the movie.
Pope encouraged the public to bring a picnic and make an evening of it.
