Concerts in the Village 

presents choral and instrumental classical music in Kinderhook, NY.

“A stunning all Handel concert at the Kinderhook Reformed Church on November 9 was one of the finest musical events of its kind in many seasons.  Maestro Smith has brought his musical forces to heights of musical grandeur.  .  .  .  This third Handel concert of the series reached heights of sustained musical beauty….In a short time ‘Concerts in the Village’ has taken on a major musical role in the Upper Hudson Valley.” -John Paul Keeler, On the Scene, Columbia-Green Media, Nov 15, 2014
