Winners of the 2011 Grammy Award for best contemporary jazz album, the Stanley Clarke Band makes its first-ever appearance in Westchester on the historic stage of Tarrytown Music Hall. Leading the talented troupe of musicians, legendary bassist Stanley Clarke infuses each jazzy arrangement with a rhythmic pulse more graceful than a bald eagle singing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Clarke's remarkable career—which began in the early 1970s—includes innovative work on multiple instruments, numerous film scores, and a lengthy discography that spans classical, jazz, R & B, and pop genres. Built in 1885, Tarrytown Music Hall has stood as a fitting abode to prodigious performers such as Joan Baez, Dizzy Gillespie, and Bruce Springsteen. Noted for its superb acoustics, the century-old institution has also played host to powerful guests such as the Rockefellers, who frequented the hall's elaborate flower shows and championship charades tournaments.

In the middle of the floor, surrounded by 150 blinking and dinging arcade games, a 24-foot rock-climbing wall stretches to the ceiling. That's how jam-packed Sportime USA is with attractions. As if all those games weren't enough, there's the XD theater—a 4-D virtual ride that combines 3-D movies with specialized motion seats. Neon-lit laser tag continues the tech trend, and bumper cars and roller coasters provide old-fashioned fun. Batting cages, billiards, and a multilevel playground are only a few of the other attractions ready to entertain families and friends of all ages.

Opened in 1924, the Lafayette Theatre first ushered filmgoers into the swashbuckling world of the French Revolution with the silent classic Scaramouche. And the movie palace, which is appointed with a grandiose French and Italian Renaissance style, has remained a Suffern touchstone by introducing 3D technology, CinemaScope, and, in the late 1980s, the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. These days, jaunty organ tunes precede Friday- and Saturday-night features inside the renovated, single-screen theater, which specializes in first-run Hollywood flicks and classic cinema. One of the "great places to revel in cinematic grandeur," according to USA Today, the 942-seat theater surrounds visitors with ornate touches like a crystal chandelier, a red velvet curtain, and opera booths sans distracting Muppets.

Founded by the Marc and Livia Straus family, the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art strives to present interdisciplinary programs that enrich the community through many forms of contemporary art. Works from renowned and emerging contemporary artists share the Center's 12,000-square feet of exhibition space with a variety of long-term installations, several made by participants in the nonprofit’s artist in residence program. The HVCCA supplies artists with studio space, living quarters, and an extended stipend in order to foster creative work on-site and engage in an active discussion with visitors or talkative muses. Special events range from panel discussions and film screenings to a monthly family art day with lessons for parents and kids based on current exhibits. The Center has also organized special projects including the Banner Project, where artists mentor more than 300 youth in creating a large-scale installation, and the Public Tile Project, where 2,000 students design tiles that for a trail from Peekskill Train Station to the Center.
