Pawling Concert Series 2018-2019 Season
The Pawling Concert Series is entering its 45th Season! For over four decades we have brought hundreds of musicians to Pawling and have developed a strong audience for good music. The artists in this year’s Series will challenge, entertain, and excite you with their programming and superb musicianship.
The Scarlatti Jazz Suite Project

Jazz fused with Baroque…. Afro-Latin with classical…. Bach and Piazzolla: the Inventions Trio led by pianist / composer / improviser Donal Fox weaves together the music of different eras and genres, and creates something altogether new.

In "Visions of Mozart," Jeremy Denk ponders the musical influences on and by Mozart: what music influenced him and who did he influence? With his violinist colleagues, he will surprise us with a program of works by composers that include Debussy, Handel, Stravinsky, Shubert, and of course Mozart’s own music, all while explaining how they are connected. This concert, presented for the first time in Pawling, will go on to Carnegie Hall shortly after.

All Saints' Chapel The Consort's love for the early music of English/Scottish heritage has led them to the traditional ballads and dance tunes of the Appalachians and Nova Scotia. In Pawling, they will perform a holiday program that draws from these sources.
Gardiner Theater A love of chamber music inspires these musicians to divert time from their busy schedules with one of the world's greatest orchestras – the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam - to perform together as Camerata RCO. Praised by the New York Times for their "warm, glowing performance," the ensemble plays some 50 concerts a season in music capitals around the world, in addition to their performances with the orchestra.

Hubbard Court in the Smith Field House Picture Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band playing with Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, and you will have a general idea of a performance by Davina & the Vagabonds. Filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages, the band has created a stir on the national music scene. A coffee house style concert.
