Cash Crunch Cuts Concerts

PERTH AMBOY – A funding shortfall forced the cancellation of the Labor Day weekend Concerts by the Bay performance, and may require the Aug. 29 concert to be eliminated as well if fundraising efforts are not successful.

The free concert series by the Garden State Symphonic band at Bayview Park overlooking Perth Amboy’s waterfront was originally scheduled to include ten performances. Organizers are trying to raise money to pay for the ninth show on Aug. 29. Each concert costs approximately $7,000.

Donations can be sent to Concerts By the Bay Inc., c/o Dr. Jaime Santamaria, chairman, 104 Market Street, Perth Amboy, NJ 08861.
