Making Musicals – A Concert with Conversation
Sunday, October 9, 6pm
Community Room, Hudson Area Library
Composer/lyricist Neil Bartram (R) and director/writer Brian Hill (L) will be sharing stories of their myriad projects – including conceptual ideas and songs, during a performance at the Hudson Area Library on the Sunday of Columbus Day Weekend, October 9 at 6pm.
From their keyboards to opening nights, hear music peppered with stories from behind the Broadway curtains. For a separate admission, meet and mingle at a private dinner following the performance.
The Hudson Area Library’s Storytime on the Go will visit the Hudson Farmers Market this Saturday from 9AM – 1PM. Join us this free event, which will include stories about nature and animals, songs, and puppetry.
Storytime on the Go is a mobile early literacy effort aimed at encouraging opportunities for parents and caregivers to read to their babies, toddlers, and young children. The event is best suited for children ages 0-5 and their families. Free board books will be available for participants to take home.
Storytime on the Go is made possible by the Hudson Area Library’s Kids First Initiative with grant support from the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation’s Fund for Columbia County.
During the Hudson City School District’s Spring Break, the Children’s Room will offer special programming each day as well as our regularly scheduled programming. We hope you’ll join us! All ages welcome!
