Music & Arts and Vail-Leavitt launch “You can Uke” program downtown
The Vail-Leavitt Music Hall will offer ukulele (Yes, ukulele!!) lessons for all levels of players on Thursday nights at 7 PM in the downstairs cafe. The class will be taught by Bob Barta. A musician and educator dubbed “a Long Island treasure” by Dan’s Papers, Mr. Barta has performed across the country with numerous groups and has been a featured workshop presenter at many fretted instrument shows.
As a special offer, the newly opened Music & Arts store in downtown Riverhead is offering a ukulele “starter kit” with a uke, case and tuner at a discounted price.
Lessons will be given in a group/ensemble format. A donation to the Music Hall of $15 per student is suggested to help the Music Hall continue its mission of bringing unique cultural and musical experiences to downtown Riverhead.
Special Holiday Event – Sunday, December 13th featuring Larry Liso & Barbecue Bruce and the Brisket Brothers!!
The Vail-Leavitt Music Hall (with support from Suffolk County’s Office of Economic Development) will be hosting a series of special events in December beginning on December 13th with a special performance by Las Vegas entertainer Larry Liso.

Money raised supports continuing operation of Long Island’s oldest theater.
Doors open at 2:30 PM. Advance tickets are available through Vail-Leavitt board members with remaining tickets available at the door for $25 each. The Vail-Leavitt Music Hall is located at 18 Peconic Avenue in downtown Riverhead (parking and handicap access behind the building).
