Exciting concerts in Elizabethtown NY at The Historic Hand House


"2 Sonatas & a Trio"  

Please join us for our first concert of the new season on September 10 and 11th, 2016 where we welcome cellist extraordinaire Elizabeth Simkin and friends to the Hand House. These concerts will be the perfect kick-off for yet another exciting year of phenomenal concerts which will include: the return of Chilean pianist Paulina Zamora, Westport's stupendous duo Alisa Endsley and Russell Ames, internationally-acclaimed violinist Linda Rosenthal, Vermont-via-LA singer-songwriter Gregory Douglass, and the much-talked-about return of Jazzical with virtuoso pianist Joel A. Martin.
