Five Points Cafe hosted Sayville’s first “Music Paints the Night” event on Thursday, and GreaterSayville.com was there to catch all the fun.
Local recording artist and music teacher Jack Licitra teamed up with Greater Sayville Chamber of Commerce President Eileen Tyznar to organize the festive event. The revelry got started about 6 p.m., much to the delight of the dinner crowd at the popular eatery.
A bevy of talented young performers – all under the tutelage of Licitra at his South Bay Arts Pharmacy music studio in Bayport – provided hours of energetic entertainment, including sing-along favorites for the audience to participate in.
The event coincided with Licitra and the chamber’s first-time roll out of the “Painted Piano,” a public piano that will periodically make the rounds in downtown Sayville. On Thursday, it was parked outside Five Points Cafe, and open for passersby to sit and play.
The piano — dedicated to longtime Sayville music and art teacher Gail Harper, who passed away last Christmas Eve — is sitting outside Mini Monet Inc today to help the children’s art studio celebrate the grand opening (4-7 p.m.) of its new location at 122/128 Main St.
