6 Autumns  (Instagram Story) – 1

Six Autumns on the Hudson 
a chamber opera in one act

music by Steven Crino
libretto by Lauren Andersen
starring Casie Girvin and Elizabeth Gorrie

Susie M. Barstow and Edith Wilkinson Cook, two very different painters of the Hudson school – and fast friends – take a canoe trip to Pollopel (soon to be Bannerman) Island every Autumn from 1858 to 1902. What will they discover about themselves – and about each other – over long years for friendship, art, and paddling through rough water towards the reward of the elusive island?

This concert will be inside our studio, mask-optional.

September 29, 2023 @ 8p.m.
