The Watermill Summer Concert is a one-of-a-kind event in the Hamptons combining the sleek beauty of Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center and the breathtaking landscape of the grounds with a live outdoor performance featuring this unique pairing of pop singers. Last year’s concert headlined by Rufus Wainwright and Norah Jones drew over 700 music lovers.

Lisa Anastos, Valerie Boster, Martin Dawson, Amanda Hearst, Shamim M. Momin, and
Dalia Oberlander

Tickets range from $150 to $1000, the latter price including access to a backstage meet-and-greet with the artists after the show. For tickets, please visit The Watermill Center website at:   or call the Byrd Hoffman Watermill Foundation at
212.253.7484 ext 18.

The proceeds of the concert will support Watermill’s Fall and Spring Residency Program that provides young and emerging artists who embrace avant-garde, multidisciplinary approaches with space and time to explore and further develop their work. The artists exhibit or perform their work for the Hamptons, Long Island, and New York community as part of their residency experience.

About Rufus Wainwright

Affectionately referred to by Elton John as "the greatest songwriter on the planet" and praised by The New York Times for his "genuine originality," Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. He has released eight albums and three DVDs to date, as well as appearing on numerous soundtracks and compilations and collaborating with artists including Elton John, David Byrne, Burt Bacharach
and the Pet Shop Boys.

Wainwright's latest album is titled “All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu”. This album includes
 the final aria from his first opera, Prima Donna, “Les Feux d’artifice t’appellent” and three Shakespeare Sonnets which Rufus has gorgeously crafted in his very own inimitable style. They are selected from 24 pieces of music that Rufus wrote for a theatrical production with director Robert Wilson in Berlin. His previous album, Release The Stars, has achieved Gold sales status in Canada and the U.K.

About Kylie Minogue

Twenty-something years at the top of the world’s pop charts, a feat only rivaled by Elton John and Madonna. Fifty million records sold, with 50 hit singles and 10 platinum studio albums (plus several compilations, live albums and countless DVDs).

Although her State-side hits have been fewer she’s well remembered here for her first hit in 1987 The Loco-motion (Billboard chart #3 hit), Can't Get You Out Of My Head in 2001, a Grammy in 2004 for Come Into My World and four additional Grammy nominations.

Kylie was awarded an OBE by Queen Elizabeth II for “services to music” and the “Chevalier de L’ordre des Arts et Lettres” insignia (‘Knight’ in the Order of Arts and Letters) for her “contribution to the enrichment of French culture”. She’s appeared before Royalty in Britain and Europe, received countless gold and platinum discs, sold-out eight record breaking world tours and in 2000 closed the Sydney Olympics.

Of her North American tour last year Billboard said Minogue had the audience eating out of her petite hands; and the News Of The World proclaimed Note-perfect live vocals ….
a perfect show ….at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom.

About The Watermill Center

Watermill is a laboratory for performance founded by Robert Wilson to provide a unique and supportive environment for emerging artists to explore new ideas and foster their career development.

Watermill draws inspiration from all the arts and cultures as well as from social, human, and natural sciences. Watermill is a global community of artists where living and working together among the extensive collection of art and artifacts lies at the heart of the experience. Watermill strives to be a haven for a next generation of artists while supporting their work among a network of international institutions that embrace new interdisciplinary approaches.

Watermill offers a wide range of programs and activities throughout the year. For the well-known International Summer Arts Program, Wilson invites 60-80 artists who come from over
25 countries—48 countries so far—for 4-5 weeks of intense creative exploration. There are daily workshops with Mr. Wilson and his collaborators, based on new projects they are developing in all areas of the arts. Residents also develop their own work under Wilson’s guidance. A lecture series completes the ambitious programs.

For the Center’s Fall and Spring Residency programs, which take place from September to June, a high-profile committee of practitioners in the arts and humanities—including Wilson, Marina Abramovic, Alanna Heiss, Albert Maysles, Gerard Mortier, John Rockwell, Jonathan Safran Foer, Richard Sennett, Nike Wagner and others—selects over 15 groups, individual artists and scholars in residence to workshop their own creations. The residencies are complemented by educational programs with schools and other institutions; public events such as open rehearsals and lectures, seminars and symposia; and tours of the building and grounds.

Founded in 1992, the Watermill Center is a 22,000 square foot facility located on the six-acre site of a former Western Union communication research facility on Long Island’s East End.
