The Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra continues its American Portrait Series with “Beyond Ellis Island”, a performance of works from American naturalized citizens Ernest Bloch, Victor Herbert, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Woodstock, New York’s own Robert Starer.

Steeped in local and American lore, the concert will be performed in the historic Old Dutch Church in Kingston, NY and will feature the 112 year-old Mendelssohn Club of Kingston – an all-male chorus conducted by Paul Scatenato.


Also performing with NDSO’s string orchestra are soprano Jody Weatherstone and NDSO principal clarinetist William Stevens.
