10th Anniversary Season

Mid-20th Century American Music

Location to be confirmed.

The strings of the Broad Street Orchestra, joined by English hornist Nathaniel Fossner, clarinetist Paul Green and harpist Kathryn Sloat will explore:

Mid-20th c. American music by Samuel Barber, Elliot Carter, Aaron Copland, Irving Fine, Walter Piston and others.

Included will be Copland’s Clarinet Concerto, Piston’s Fantasy for English Horn and Harp, and Fine’s Serious Song, Lament.

Says David Smith, “Many now neglected treasures created during this important period in American music are long overdue for our attention. I am confident that listeners will be both stimulated and moved.”

“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
