Please join us for our season finale when we feature jazz violinist Gwen Laster as our soloist. This annual pops concert held on Father's Day weekend in the Rhinebeck High School Auditorium is a favorite with our audiences and will include music from Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin and contemporary composer Scott Routenberg.
Hear us play Alexander's Ragtime Band, Hello Dolly, What a Wonderful World, Saints Go Marching In, Sophisticated Lady, It Don't Mean a Thing, and more.
Hear Routenberg’s Concerto for Jazz Violin and Orchestra, a groundbreaking piece written to give jazz musicians like Ms. Laster the freedom to improvise and create something unique and very special for that one night.
And hear us give "A Night of Jazz" an added dimension when we juxtapose Ellington's jazz interpretation of The Nutcracker Suite, arranged for the orchestra by Jeff Tyzik, with the original Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky.
This season is made possible, in part, through funding from Dutchess Tourism, Inc. and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.
