On Saturday, June 14th, join Piano by Nature for two fabulous musical forces AND a homemade BBQ meal with all the fix’ns. We start with open-air dinnertime entertainment by the marvelous a capella group THE METER MAIDS as you enjoy BBQ platters by Peggy Staats on the picturesque Hand House lawn. Singing a cappella in four part harmony, Cherie LaDuke, Jennifer Scofield, Carole Harsh and Carla Brassard put a new spin on a quintessential American musical genre – Barbershop Quarteting. Infusing old favorites with a fresh sound, The Meter Maids bring finger-snapping sizzle to their audiences throughout the North Country and the Champlain Valley, where the Meter Maids have entertained area audiences at venues including the Turtle Island Cafe, First Night Saranac Lake, and the Dragon Heart Festival on Burlington’s waterfront.
Then we all move indoors to the parlor, where Westport native son Daniel Linder will treat us to an outstanding piano recital including works by Liszt, Chopin, Debussy, and more. This Fall, Daniel will begin his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the esteemed Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. This concert will be followed by a light snack reception. Festivities begin at 5pm- with the recital performance at 7pm.
