Maverick Concerts, America’s oldest continuous summer chamber music festival and winner of the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, thrives on the love of great music and the spirit of its unique site in the unspoiled woods. The rustic 1916 concert hall is ideally suited to chamber music and the intimacy of live performance.
This is Maverick’s 98th Season and they are focusing on the great 20th century British Composer, Benjamin Britten, who spent the summer of 1939 in Woodstock.
Maverick Concerts Music Director, Alexander Platt, and Publicity Director, Mary Fairchild join us to tell us more.
The first arts awards for Ulster County are being handed out Tuesday in Kingston. And the organization behind the awards is about to change its name to reflect its reach.
The Dutchess County Arts Council has been working with Ulster County for years, and will soon change its name to better reflect that work. Linda Marston-Reid is president of the Dutchess County Arts Council. She says the name has been a barrier to having communities understand who the council serves.
