At 4:00pm on Saturday, October 20th Concerts in the Village presents its 30th concert, highlighting the Broad Street Orchestra and graduates of the Bard Vocal Arts Program, in Van Buren Hall, 6 Chatham Street (US Route 9), Kinderhook. This will be the second program in CITV’s 2018-2019 season.

Featured will be works for orchestra and for voices with orchestra: Handel’s Water Music Suite I in F, Bach’s comic Coffee Cantata, Haydn’s Symphony 78 in c minor, and two dramatic arias also by Haydn, Miseri noi, misera patria and the famous Scena di Berenice. CITV Artistic Director David Smith will conduct.

This concert inaugurates an important CITV initiative: The largest single gift in its history has established the Emerging Singer Fund, which is underwriting three concerts (two with full orchestra) in the current season. Each is an addition to concerts regularly funded by CITV. The intent of this initiative is to provide performing opportunities with orchestra for exceptional singers engaged in advanced studies, particularly those in the Bard Graduate Vocal Arts Program (Dawn Upshaw, Artistic Director). It is also designed to benefit those who have completed their studies, as well as other singers in the critical early years of their careers.

Comments Artistic Director David Smith, “This initiative is a substantial development for CITV, and confirms much about the quality and sustainability of what we offer. It will certainly enrich CITV programming in 2018-2019 and subsequent seasons. I am especially grateful for the financial leadership this gift represents and the future possibilities it suggests. I anticipate many exciting collaborations in programs artfully mixing vocal and orchestral music. The second specially funded program will be on February 24th, 2019.”

Those singing on October 20th include soprano Katharine Rossiter, mezzo sopranos Mary-Elizabeth O’Neill and Kameryn Lueng, tenor Dan Foster, and baritone Nathaniel Sullivan. All except Dan Foster are graduates of the Bard Vocal Arts Program. The Broad Street Orchestra has established itself as the region’s premiere professional chamber orchestra.
