‘Invented Sounds’

Guild Hall will continue its live outdoor programs with “Invented Sounds: Viv Corringham and Gian Carlo Feleppa” on Saturday at 7 p.m. Ms. Corringham is a singer, composer, and soundscape artist whose work ranges from free improvisation to Greek, Turkish, and other styles of music, often combined with field recordings made while out walking. Mr. Feleppa creates original and spontaneous music on the guitar, sitar, keys, drums, and vocals, looping it all through a series of pedals.

The artists will perform solo and collaborative works reflecting their shared interest in improvised, found, and responsive sound. Each $40 ticket buys one “lawn circle,” which can seat one or two people. Guests have been encouraged to take blankets and beach chairs.


Surf Movie Night

The Eastern Long Island Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, in partnership with Guild Hall, will live-stream its 18th annual surf movie night on Wednesday at 7. The chapter’s biggest fund-raiser of the year, the event will support its work protecting and promoting clean water and healthy beaches.

The screening will feature a mix of films focused on surfing, beaches, and environmental sustainability. Tickets start at $25 per household. In addition, an online auction of donations from local businesses is open for bidding through Friday, Aug. 14, at 7 p.m. The auction can be accessed through links on Guild Hall’s and Surfrider’s websites.


Jazz Alfresco

The Jazz on the Terrace series at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will feature Julie Bluestone, a flute and sax player, and her ensemble tomorrow at 6 p.m. A composer, arranger, teacher, and instrumentalist, Ms. Bluestone has performed her eclectic mix of Latin rhythms and jazz standards throughout New York City and on the East End for nearly 20 years.

Tickets are $20, $10 for members, and must be purchased in advance on the museum’s website. The concert will take place on the covered terrace and, weather permitting, the event lawn. Guests have been asked to take their own chairs.


At the Drive-In

The Southampton Chamber of Commerce’s annual drive-in movie series at Cooper’s Beach has returned for its 11th season. Next up, on Monday, will be “American Graffiti,” which helped launch the careers of its director, George Lucas, as well as the cast members Richard Dreyfuss, Harrison Ford, and Cindy Williams.

Tickets are $40 per vehicle and must be purchased in advance from the chamber’s website, where more details are available. The gates open at 6:30; the film will begin at 8:30. 


Suffolk History

The Suffolk County Historical Society Museum in Riverhead will reopen on Saturday morning at 10. Its current exhibitions include “Urban/Suburban: New York City and North Fork Street Photography” by Neil Scholl; “The Parry Sisters,” costumes, beads, and other artifacts that tell the story of the Riverhead circus performers; “Long Island in Conflict,” a permanent installation of objects honoring Long Island’s contributions to this country’s defense, and “When Women Wore Whales,” which illuminates how whalebone shaped 19th-century fashion.

The museum will be open Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
