See Soul Session perform live with Yellowdog at Shepard Park as part of the Fridays at the Lake Concert Series!

This week’s Fridays at the Lake Concert Series will have an international flair as the Village hosts all the students who were employed this season. The evening’s entertainment will be part of a “Farewell Celebration” to honor over 1,500 local and international students. Most of them are slated to return to college or their home country in the next few days.

Students will be asked for ID or payroll stubs and be treated to live music by Albany’s sensational Soul Session. This is a high energy and moving ensemble that performs multi-genre soul music with entertaining command and spontaneous originality! This is a 5-star band that isn’t just a show but an experience. 

The very popular band Yellowdog opens the show at 6 PM.

Members of the Student Connection will provide food and beverages for the students along with some prizes. There will also be a dance contest and a t-shirt give-away.

A wine and beer tent is available as well as bounce houses, a food wagon and a weekly not-for-profit raffle.This week everyone can enjoy face painting by Jo-Jo Fabulous Faces.
