ALCA-Seltzer (Online) Series


During this time of social distancing and staying safe, we are pleased to present the

ALCA-Seltzer Series: Online Relief from the Headaches of Social Distancing!

Plop, plop, fizz, fizz ... These "doses" of online workshops (Seltzer Workshops), short videos (Seltzer Shorts), & livestreams (Seltzer Streams) are designed to help the Arts Center stay connected with our communities, both near and far! They include songs, theatre, studio tours, workshops, concerts ... a range of activities that reflects what the Arts Center has provided and will provide again once the COVID-19 pandemic has passed. Thanks to all of the talented folks in our series!

Your latest doses:

Lena Giordano, a member of our Junior Board, and her dad, Charlie, grace us with their take on a Billy Joel classic, "New York State of Mind." We are missing Lena and her whole family this summer (her mom is one of Blue Mountain Lake's Collins clan), but we wish them health and safety. And you might recognize Lena's famous dad: Charlie is keyboardist/accordionist with the E Street Band, whose frontman is a guy named Springsteen. :)


Mike Nerney & Harrison Michael Hall with their brand-new song, "Sailing Away," from Mike's new CD, The Train to Anywhere. Mike and Harrison, his grandson, are proud Long Lakers; Mike is a long-time supporter of the Arts Center (a former Board president!), and both he and Harrison have performed at the Arts Center, separately and together. In fact, Harrison is a member of our Junior Board! Thanks to both Mike and Harrison for being part of our series. Mike's new CD is available on CD Baby for $10. For information on how to purchase the CD, email Mike at
