Chamber Music on the Hudson Returning to Gardiner in 2022
By L.A. McMahon
From Issue 51: Fall 2021
A transcendent afternoon of music occurred this past September with the only 2021 concert presented by Chamber Music on the Hudson (CMH). It took place at The Shed on Old Post Road in New Paltz, but the original venue of previous (and future) CMH seasons is DM Weil Gallery on Bruynswick Road in Gardiner. At this 2021 concert, the Metropolitan Opera artists Caterina Szepes (violin) and Mariko Anraku (harp) were introduced by Inessa Zaretzky, Music Director of Chamber Music on the Hudson. They played pieces by Fauré, Saint-Saens, Piazolla and others to a full crowd. Those in attendance wore their masks at the indoor-outdoor venue, often closing their eyes to get the full effect of the glorious music. A lovely reception followed the music, and a great time was had by all. CMH looks forward to continuing their concerts next year at DM Weil Gallery.
