Logo Design Classics on Hudson lastThe most recent iteration of the non-profit that began life as the Columbia Festival Orchestra, is Classics on Hudson at the Historic Hudson Opera House. Beginning in 2016, Eugenia Zuckerman was appointed Artistic Director of this vibrant classical series.  Classics on Hudson brings internationally celebrated artists and creative programming to new and diverse audiences, and expands its community outreach programs committed to education and musical literacy in the Hudson Valley.

I am pleased to conduct an ANNUAL MESSIAH SING for Classics on Hudson. Visit Hudson Hall at the Historic Hudson Opera House for updated information about Classics on Hudson and to purchase tickets.


Conjuring up my new life after 70…Renovating our new house in the bustling city of Hudson…working with the Hudson Area Library as it moves into its spectacular new space in the Armory…and contemplating new and exciting projects!
