If you've ever rounded the curve of Crescent Beach on Shelter Island, you've surely seen the Perlman Music Program campus... hunter green and white cabins on a rolling hillside, with their fiddler wooden sign out front, welcoming all to open their ears and listen. I took note the very first time I visited this island, and in the years to come formed a friendship with the Program! I'm thrilled to tell you more about what they do, and what we've created together.
A special apparel collaboration is available this summer from Shelter Isle x The Perlman Music Program! We present a cozy hunter green hoodie and a crisp white Tee, both boasting our signature Retro graphic and the Perlman's famous "fiddler', dancing us all down Crescent Beach together. 100% of the purchase profits from this item go to PMP.
