Once again we are delighted that Concerts in the Village will be included on WMHT Radio’s broadcast schedule.
The Broad Street Orchestra’s performance of George Antheil’s spirited – actually rather wild – Serenade of 1948 was very well received by all able to be with us on February 16th.
Antheil was a unique composer in the history of 20th C. American music, a real character who counted among his closest friends the actress/inventor Hedy Lamarr. (His Wikipedia entry is worth a read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Antheil.)

Concerts in the Village (CITV) very much looks forward to resumption of its programming just as soon as is safely and responsibly possible. Please watch for further information.
In the hope that you, your family and friends have been well during this extended global challenge – and remain so!

“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
