The Bridgehampton Museum will open its second of two summer exhibits tomorrow from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit, “Next Stop, Seaside Board,” re-enacts the boarding house era from the innkeeper’s perspective. Boarding houses began well before the railroad arrived on the East End and were an important part of Bridgehampton’s history. Julie Greene, the exhibit’s curator, will talk about the era during the opening.
More than 100 singers and the members of the South Fork Chamber Orchestra will join together on Saturday to perform George Frideric Handel’s well-known Baroque masterpiece “Israel in Egypt” and Cantata 79 by J.S. Bach. The Choral Society of the Hamptons will team up with the Greenwich Village Singers in the performance. Both groups are directed by Mark Mangini, who will conduct. Suzanne Schwing, mezzo-soprano, and Mischa Bouvier, baritone, are known here from previous concerts with the Choral Society. Sara Paar will be the soprano.
Following Monday's heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Health Department has advised swimmers against bathing at 64 beaches across the county, including Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. No other beaches in East Hampton Town are covered by the advisory, which has to do with bacteria levels related to stormwater runoff.
