Over Memorial Day weekend, Orion Weiss will present works by Beethoven and American Composers Gershwin, MacDowell and Keith Jarrett on Saturday, May 23rd at 7 p.m. Weiss is also a Pianofest Distinguished Artist, as well as a 2015 Mentor. "When you're named after one of the biggest constellations in the night sky, the pianist Orion Weiss did exactly that in a high-powered and often ferocious recital," noted the Washington Post.

Performances will take place at the Levitas Center for the Arts at Southampton Cultural Center. Tickets are $15 for general admission and free for students under 21.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didnít change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
