The Villager’s publisher, Jennifer Goodstein, above, second from left, added some color to a gathering for the Washington Square Music Festival on Sat., May 18, when the event’s supporters and organizers came together at the Jefferson Market Garden, on W. 10th St. between Sixth and Greenwich Aves., to benefit the fest and prepare to kick off its 55th year of free summer concerts in the park. Joining Goodstein were, from left, state Senator Brad Hoylman; Peggy Friedman, the music festival’s executive director; and Lutz Rath, the festival’s musical director. This year’s lineup, with performances on July 9, 16, 23 and 30, features a diverse mix of classical, avant-garde and African music, including the world’s first “toy piano virtuoso.”
