The Howland Chamber Music Circle presents a concert of music from early American and French composers who's own stories also relate back to the history of the Hudson Valley during the 19th century. Featuring saxophonist Christopher Brellochs, head of the Dutchess Community College Music Department, and pianist Cynthia Peterson.
During the Gilded Age (1860-1900) people wanted the best from Europe, but with an American sensibilty. For this musical program, that means some of the finest French music from the Paris Conservatory, an 1879 composition by English immigrant Caryl Florio for saxophone, and piano pieces by American composers Louis Moreau Gottschalk and Ulysses J. Alsdorf.
FREE Admission and meet-the-artists reception after the concert.
