A project nearly five decades in the making has come to fruition for East End Arts.
The nonprofit arts organization announced the opening of a new recording studio at its downtown Riverhead Carriage House, which will allow musicians from across the East End and neighboring towns to record on professional equipment.

An artist with a holistic approach to lesson planning has been named East End Arts’ newest education director.
Diane Giardi, who began work in the downtown Riverhead office last week, said she’s excited to help teachers prepare curriculums and to build relationships with local artists and community groups.
“One thing I’d like to incorporate is some text in courses — poetry and other aspects of writing and the narrative,” she said. “It would also be nice to bring a little more theater back.”
