Festival of the Arts BOCA, Boca Raton Historical Society & The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum To Host Second SUMMER SIPS & SOUNDS

The concert on July 20 will be Music from the 70s

(Boca Raton, FL – July 1, 2022) Festival of the Arts BOCA, Boca Raton Historical Society (BRHS), and The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum (SBRHM) today announced the second concert in the SUMMER SIPS & SOUNDS. Scheduled for Wednesday, July 20, at 6 pm, it will feature Music from the Seventies, and will be held in the museum’s lecture hall, located in Historic Town Hall, 71 North Federal Highway in downtown Boca Raton (33432).

The evening starts with a cocktail reception at 6 pm sponsored by The Seagate Hotel and the actual performance will run from 6:45 to 7:30 pm.

“The 1970s was an exciting decade in Boca Raton as the town was experiencing exponential growth and change: the Historical Society was founded, I-95 was completed through Boca, Arvida was building gated communities, and IBM had arrived bringing an influx of new families,” says Museum Executive Director Mary Csar. “Enjoy some of the pop hits from the era when these changes were happening, music made popular by such artists as The Carpenters, Carole King and Elton John.”

Musicians for the July 20 concert include Rick Krive (keyboard and vocals), Scot Klarman (saxophone), and Joanna Marie Kaye (vocals).

“The third and final SUMMER SIPS & SOUNDS concert will be held on September 21. It will have the same format with a different historical theme for the music,” adds Csar.

Tickets for each concert are $30 for BRHS members and $40 for nonmembers. They are available for purchase online at
