Our thanks to all those who joined us at the classical music concert given by pianist Morey Hall last Saturday evening, March 22nd. Our first fund raiser of the season was a huge success. “We had a full house,” said Trustee Mark Orton, “and we raised more than $7,000.00. It’s great to have such support from the community.”

The event paired well-known classical music selections from the Romantic Period with wines reflecting the same era. Hudson Wine Merchants’ Michael Albin and staff poured and described his choices to an enthusiastic audience of 70 plus supporters.

Apropos of the musical nature of the evening, Orton announced the gift to the Library of a 1999 Yamaha GP1 Grand Piano. “Doctor Barbara Weiser and her husband Dr. Harold Burger, friends of our performer, were moving to California and downsizing at the same time,” said Mr. Orton. “Fortunately, they learned that we were moving to a larger facility that would include a good sized Community Room. It’s so generous of them to have given not only the piano, but the cost of moving it into the new building as soon as it’s ready.”

Much appreciation goes to all who helped make this a wonderful event – especially the team at Hudson Opera House.

Wines sampled were selected to reflect the romanticism evoked by the music.
