The Town of Oyster Bay's 2013-2014 Distinguished Artists Concertseries continues in January with varied performances at libraries throughout the town.

“This program, which is one of the town’s most popular, runs through May 2014 and features performances by a diverse collection of musical acts and dance programs,” said Councilwoman Rebecca Alesia.

“These concerts, all free of charge, help illustrate how truly diverse the interests of our residents here in the town are, and provide them with the finest cultural and performing arts entertainment," Alesia said.
