Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra Will Perform In Hyde Park

HYDE PARK, N.Y. – The Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra will bring together the tunes of Gilbert and Sullivan and the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber for an evening of British theater favorites on Saturday, Feb. 6 at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park.

Included will be music from Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Mikado and The Pirates of Penzance.

The concert starts at 8 p.m. and will be performed in the 800-seat Marriott Pavilion auditorium. The Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra will be joined by 50 singers from the select choruses of John Jay and Roy C. Ketcham high schools. The choruses are under the direction of Candice Ruffalo and Matthew King, respectively.

Kathleen Beckmann, NDSO’s artistic director, expects that the contrasting styles of music from these two distinct periods of British theater will make for an enjoyable and dynamic concert program. She views the concert as “Victorian era meets rock and roll” and says that, “while the tunes of Gilbert and Sullivan are always prim, proper, and restrained, Webber’s pieces can be irreverent and outrageous, with pounding rhythms, unusual meters, and harmonies that clash at times.”

To complement this evening of music, the CIA will open the Ristorante Caterina de’ Medici for a special $39 pre-performance dining experience. The menu will include family-style Caesar salad and antipasti, a selection of five pastas served tableside, and a set dessert.

Reservations for this pre-performance dinner are available from 5 to 6:15 p.m. The $39 excludes beverages, service charge, and tax. To book your table, call 845-905-4533 or email ciarestaurantgroup@culinary.edu.

Tickets for the concert are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $5 for students.
