Songs on the lawn at Olana Historic Site
Bring a blanket and enjoy an evening of music at Olana, 5720 Route 9G, Hudson, on Saturday, June 21, 7 p.m., on the east lawn of the state historic site. In the event of rain, the event will be held in the Wagon House Education Center.
Jim Wann and Chris Brashear will perform “In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening.”
Chattanooga-born Wann is a composer-lyricist for Broadway’s Tony-nominated “Pump Boys and Dinettes.” He will sing his own songs, folk tunes as well as Johnny Mercer classics.
Brashear, a singer/ songwriter and musician for Prairie Home Companion’s Robin and Linda Williams, will accompany Wann with guitar, fiddle and mandolin.
Along with the blanket, bring a picnic and a flashlight, and watch sunset over the Catskill Mountains.
Registration is requested, but not required, by Friday. Tickets are $15; $5 for ages 12 and younger.
At Olana, the home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Edwin Church, more than 250 acres of an artist-designed landscape can be experienced; walk over five miles of carriage trails that bisect the property.
The Olana Partnership will host its annual Frederic E. Church Award Gala at the New York Public Library, New York City, on Thursday, June 19. Three individuals will be recognized for their work: curator Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, architect Peter Pennoyer of Manhattan, and interior designer Katie Ridder. Sara Johns Griffien, president and CEO of The Olana Partnership, is being honored for 25 years of leadership.
