Music of the Guilded Age in the Hudson Valley

at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church
15 South Street, Beacon, NY

In a concert featuring saxophonist Christopher Brellochs,
head of the Dutchess Community College Music Department,
and pianist Cynthia Peterson,
this program features "Music of the Gilded Age in the Hudson Valley."

This will include 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.

FREE Admission and meet-the-artists reception after the concert.
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.

This performance is part of a sabbatical project by Dutchess Community College professor
Dr. Christopher Brellochs, where he researches the music and stories of the Gilded Age.
