Harbor Point to Host Latest Event of “On the Rocks” Series on July 19th
An Evening of Fun Will Combine the Efforts of 3 Non-Profits and Feature Live Music by Classic Rock Band Merlin plus a Fashion Show with Miss Connecticut Pageant Contestants
Stamford, CT (July 18, 2012) – Harbor Point will host the latest in its weekly summer series of “On the Rocks” outdoor events on Thursday, July 19th. Open to residents and business tenants of the Harbor Point community, the event was announced by Carl Kuehner III, CEO of Building and Land Technology, the developer of Harbor Point.
In the picturesque backdrop of Stamford’s South End waterfront, the evening’s activities will take place from 5:30 to 8:00 PM on the boardwalk at the North Marina. Combining the efforts of three non-profit organizations, the entertainment will headline a live concert by locally based, classic rock band Merlin as well as a fashion show featuring contestants from the Miss Connecticut pageant and models from Connecticut Fashion Week.
Making their entrance in style, models for the fashion show will arrive by water, cruising in aboard the majestic Schooner SoundWaters, an 80-foot replica of a Chesapeake Bay sharpie schooner, which will dock right at the Harbor Point North Marina. The vessel is the centerpiece of youth education programs offered by Stamford-based SoundWaters, a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching students about the wonders and beauty of Long Island Sound.
Models for the fashion show will feature Miss Connecticut 2011, Morgan Amarone, as well as the reigning Miss Capital Region, Miss Greater Waterbury, Miss Tolland County, Miss Mountain Laurel, and many others. The show is being organized and emceed by The New Paradigm Theater Company, a non-profit company run by Broadway theatre professionals who mentor participants in theater production and performance.
During the show, Merlin musicians Bob Capazzo, Mario Maxeiner, Josh Ramirez, Dave Bachenheimer and Australian recording Artist, Aidan Nolan will perform favorite, danceable hits of all the decades from the 1960’s to the present. Refreshments for the event will be provided by Corporate Culinary.
The evening’s entertainment will provide the added benefit of increased exposure for the participating non-profit organizations. “The New Paradigm Theatre Company is excited to be part of producing a glam, fun event that also highlights three non-profits working together,” said Artistic Director Kristin Huffman, a Tony award-winning Broadway actress and former Miss Ohio herself. “With the work of these groups, plus beautiful models, awesome views, and a great live band, it will be a fabulous night at Harbor Point.”
Adds Olena Czebiniak, SoundWaters Registrar, “SoundWaters is excited to once again partner with Building and Land Technology for this event, where the Schooner SoundWaters, the education vessel of Long Island Sound, will be dockside as the perfect backdrop for ‘On the Rocks’”.
