American Songfest

 

Saturday, April 22 at 8:00 p.m.

Marriott Pavilion at The Culinary Institute of America

 

Join us as we pay tribute to two local treasures — Pete Seeger and the Hudson River — and perform some of our nation’s most beloved and uniquely American songs, including Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring and Morton Gould's American Salute.  The orchestra will also be joined by members of the Hudson Valley Saxophone Orchestra and will feature photographs of the Hudson River by Joseph Squillante.

A Night of Jazz

 

Saturday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Rhinebeck High School Auditorium

 

Our annual pops concert takes on a new dimension when we juxtapose Duke Ellington's The Nutcracker Suite, arranged for the orchestra by Jeff Tyzik, with the original Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky.  Local jazz violinist Gwen Laster highlights the evening with Scott Routenberg's Concerto for Jazz Violin and Orchestra.

This season is made possible, in part, through funding from Dutchess Tourism, Inc. and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.
