Maverick Concert Hall • Woodstock, NY

From all the nearby Catskill summering places, and from some at a considerable distance, people are coming to the music chapel that Mr. White has built on his farm in the Woodstock valley to hear the eminent musicians Mr. White has gathered to play chamber music  ….

Last century, under the supervision of artist and visionary Hervey White, a wonderfully intimate concert hall was constructed in a bucolic wood setting just outside of Woodstock. This “music chapel” is the home of the Maverick Concert series, the oldest continuous summer chamber music festival in the country. This summer Maverick Concerts celebrates 100 with its “Music in the Woods” series of classical and jazz chamber music under the artistic direction of Alexander Platt.

Maverick began its 100th season with a celebratory “Maverick Mash” on Saturday. However, its regular series of Sunday afternoon chamber music programs gets underway June 28th with a performance by the Shanghai Quartet and pianist Ran Dank. They have prepared a re-creation of a concert from the Maverick Concert Series first season.

The program is to include:

      • Joseph Haydn — String Quartet No. 66 in D Major, Op. 77, No. 1
      • Max Bruch — Kol Nidrei, Op. 47, for cello and piano
      • Robert Schumann — Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44

A century ago, the performers of this Maverick concert were Charles Cooper (piano), Edward Kreiner (first violin), Gualtiero Gastelli (second violin), Rudolph Bauerkeller (viola), and Engelbert Roentgen (‘cello).

Bravo Maverick Concerts! May you have many more seasons ahead.
