Saugerties Pro Musica presents the Strawberry Hill Fiddlers, Sunday, January 25th, 2015, at 3 p.m. This is their sixth exuberant appearance on our stage. The Strawberry Hill Fiddlers always play to a full house and receive rave reviews. They are middle school and senior high students from throughout the Hudson Valley who are dedicated string musicians. This year their youthful energy will help to ring in the New Year with a concert filled with smiling, foot-stomping, fiddle-playing, good family fun!
The Strawberry Hill Fiddlers are directed by Emily and Carole Schaad. Evolving since 1999, the Fiddlers are now part of Stringendo, Inc., a 501(c) 3 non-profit community music school. Besides learning string instruments, these young students are taught how to present themselves well and please an audience. There will be some singing, some dancing and, of course, some great string music performed for your enjoyment. Please join us for the irrepressible enthusiasm these talented young string players are guaranteed to bring.
Future Saugerties Pro Musica concerts:
February 22nd – pianist Yalin Chi, Principal Keyboardist of the Hudson Valley Philharmonic and Staff Pianist at West Point, who appeared to rave reviews with the West Point Band last season, will present her first solo performance on our stage.
March 29th – pianist Thomas Pandolfi, who performed two seasons ago to equally rave reviews, is also returning to our stage for a virtuoso solo performance.
April 19th – we break tradition by presenting a rare saxophone concert by Ashu, who will perform with piano accompaniment.
May 17th – Finally, to close our season, we present the very talented Hyperion Quartet to perform enough wonderful classical music to last through the summer hiatus.
We hope you’ll join us for many, or all of these fabulous offerings. These concerts are quality musical performances by world-class musicians in a comfortable, intimate setting – and at very affordable prices. Saugerties Pro Musica concerts are at 3 p.m. Sunday afternoons at the United Methodist Church, on the corners of Washington Avenue and Post Street in Saugerties.
