The BRIDGE MUSIC Listening Stations will re-open on the Mid Hudson Bridge for their first full season with a ribbon cutting sponsored by the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce, Thursday April 1 at 12:15 pm. Composer Joseph Bertolozzi will be present to take attendees on a personal guided tour of the installation. Food, sweets and treats will be provided by Amici’s Restaurant, The Alps Sweet Shop, Cafe Bocca, and La Deliziosa, and there will be CD giveaways and CDs available for sale.
Bridge Music opened to great acclaim last year, and is an official destination on the Walkway Trail Loop which takes hikers, bikers and walkers from the Mid Hudson Bridge to the Walkway Over the Hudson State Park in a scenic circle.
The Listening Stations on the pedestrian sidewalk of the Mid Hudson Bridge are open from dawn to dusk through October 31, and are located at each of the bridge’s towers. Additionally, Park Radios on 95.3FM play the same music year-round, 24/7 in Waryas Park, Poughkeepsie and Johnson-Iorio Park, Highland. Bridge Music is free and open to the public.
