HVG Centennial Concert Extravaganza!

June 23 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

For the final concert of PAG’s spring 2024 season, we’re celebrating the centennial of our beloved home, Hudson View Gardens. The program on Sunday, June 23 at 5 pm in The Lounge features classical and jazz selections from the 1920s, right around the time that HVG was built!

Nearly a dozen performers will take the stage at The Lounge for this special concert. The program features a special arrangement of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue played by HVG resident pianists Evelyne Luest, David Kalhaus and Sasha Papernick. Also: the world premiere of a composition by Andy Didorenko written especially for the occasion and a 1924 work by Gabriel Faure played by cellist Angela Lee. The extraordinary jazz musicians, HVG residents Andrea Wood (vocals) and Ethan O’Reilly (bass) perform Tea for TwoThe Man I Love and other 1920s popular favorites.
