If, after the Hudson Opera House gala, Historic Hudson's Old House Tour, and tonight's silent auction to benefit the Valley Alliance's Save the South Bay project, you still have some disposable income to contribute to a good cause, there's an event on Sunday that promises to be memorable: an afternoon of chamber music to benefit the Dr. Oliver Bronson House, Hudson's own National Historic Landmark, distinguished for its connection with influential 19th-century American architect Alexander Jackson Davis.
The afternoon begins at 1 o'clock with a tour of the Bronson House conducted by preservation architect and Bronson House enthusiast Alan Neuman. At 2 o'clock, there's a concert by "Healing Harmonies" String Trio at 13 City Hall Place, Peggy Anderson's "ruin" behind the Hudson Opera House. After the concert, there will be reception in the courtyard of the ruin.
The cost of this afternoon of beauty and delight is $75, which supports Historic Hudson's ongoing project to stabilize and restore the Dr. Oliver Bronson House--definitely a worthy cause.
