Annual Summer Gala

Celebrating Our Home in the Hudson Highlands
Saturday, June 3, 5:00p  |  Boscobel

The remarkable marriage of nature and culture within the Hudson Valley has attracted artists and art lovers to this particular landscape since before the founding of our Republic. Now, at a time when support for the arts in America is at risk, we want to celebrate our home and its central role in our nation’s rich cultural legacy.

Raise a glass to our beloved Highlands and share in the announcement of a new programming initiative by Artistic Director Davis McCallum: the launch of HV Stories. This multi-year program focuses on works by and about the people of this great landscape, initiated in 2017 with Rhinebeck-based playwright Richard Nelson's THE GENERAL FROM AMERICA - about the moments leading up to Benedict Arnold's infamous flight from West Point.
