The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has committed to purchasing power generated by an offshore wind farm built by the Rhode Island firm Deepwater Wind. The Wind Farm is expected to provide 90 megawatts of electricity to the South Fork, where demand is projected to increase sharply. The facility is scheduled for completion in December 2022. Cable connecting off shore wind generators to LIPAs electric grid will be buried under Gardiners Bay in East Hampton. Long time proponents of off shore wind farms are enthusiastic but local fishermen are concerned over the impact on sea life and their operations.

The Syrian-American composer and pianist Malek Jaldani is this month’s guest. His diverse and prolific repertoire includes integration of Middle Eastern and Western classical forms that have been performed by leading orchestras in Europe and North America, most recently in Carnegie Hall earlier this year. Equally prolific is Mr. Jaldani’s humanitarian activism, informed by his mission to build peace through music and education, and reflecting UNESCO’s plea to preserve and protect Syria’s rich but embattled cultural heritage has led to the Malek Jaldani International Youth Piano Competition and the Pianos for Peace festival in Atlanta. His numerous awards include the Carnegie Corporation honoring him as a Great Immigrant in 2015.
