Summer Soirée Summary

Spring and Summer Soirées at Weatherwatch Farm offered a full spectrum of music genres:  classical, international folk, and traditional Americana, all peppered with a jazzy dashes of improvisational flair.  From May through August informal performances were given by:

The Russian Duo (balalaika virtuoso Oleg Kruglyakov and pianist Terry Boyarsky),

solo pianist and improviser extraordinaire Jacqueline Schwab,

violinist               Sarah Whitney

and pianist Natalia Lavrova,


fiddler Lissa Schneckenburger and guitarist Bethany Waickman,


The Elegua Duo (cellist Ginevra Ventre and pianist Claire Black).

While programming ran the gamut, the level of artistry was uniformly high.  Attendance was at capacity with many regulars and a good sprinkling of new friends who are just discovering  us.

The Garden Party Benefit  at Rainbow Lake was over the top!  Don and Yvonne Busch were extravagant hosts, welcoming two hundred friends to Entayant.  Yes, 200! With the extensive and varied layout of the place, a gourmet menu of food and wine, and a delightful performance by Adirondack Brass, it was truly “pleasure for all the senses.”  A big thank you to all who supported this benefit.  We banked a tidy little sum — enough to launch our new project, the Northern Adirondack Vocal Ensemble (NAVE).  To view a musical slide show of the Entayant Garden Party with Adirondack Brass performance, click on the following link: Entayant — Hill & Hollow Benefit 8-21-11
