Music with lunch every Wednesday this Summer
Christ Episcopal Church, Hudson is pleased to announce our second annual summer lunch hour music program, our own version of “Bach’s Lunch,” every Wednesday during July and August. Various composers will be featured,
including both sacred and secular works. Each week a short biographical sketch of the composer and notes on the music of the week will be provided.
Bring a bag lunch and listen to recordings of music by popular composers on an exceptional sound system that will convince you that you are listening to a live orchestra and singers. While listening to the “concerts,” we also invite you to enjoy the ambience of our beautiful historic church. Walk quietly around the perimeter of the sanctuary with a guide book detailing the church’s history and its many beautiful, artful sacred embellishments. Cold beverages will be available, and hostesses will be on hand to answer questions.
Please join us for a thoroughly enjoyable summer lunch musical repast!

Walking the dog Theater of Ghent, NY presents 3 performances of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at Solaris, 360 Warren St. in Hudson, December 21, 22, & 23 at 8:00 pm. Admission is free as part of WTD’s Free Culture Initiative, which seeks to make the experience of live theater available to all; donations in support of this initiative are gratefully received. The Hudson performances are part of a tour that includes communities in NY, CT, and MO in December and several cities in China and Taiwan in the New Year. The theater’s Executive Artistic Director David Anderson, who performs the piece solo (moving fluidly from character to character) says of the project, “A Christmas Carol has become an annual tradition in many communities, and it is the best way I know to become inspired by the season.”
Through drama and masterful storytelling, Anderson performs the story exactly as Dickens wrote it, giving the audience not only the dialogue but the descriptive passages as well. Anderson’s rendition, directed by Ted Pugh, is a modern revival of Dickens’ own manner of storytelling. Dickens gave performances drawn from A Christmas Carol and The Pickwick Papers throughout the Northeastern United States, from his arrival in Boston in mid-November, 1867 to his return to England in April 1868. Walking the dog Theater’s production, now in its 12th year, received high praises from Bruce Hallenbeck of The Independent, who wrote of David Anderson’s performance, “Amazing one-man show. . .what Dickens intended all along!”
