Rhinebeck Concert Celebrates Women in Music

Despite its being such a shopping and culinary mecca, not since the olden days of the Rhinecliff Hotel has the Rhinebeck/Rhinecliff area been much of a destination for live music. Do those who call the area home fear that a regular influx of music lovers will soil their doilies or trample their truffles? Thankfully, not all of them do: For quite some time, the Rhinebeck Chamber Society has been working to fill the gaps, as a concert titled “A Celebration of Women in Music,” which the organization is presenting in Rhinebeck later this month, attests.

As the title makes clear, the program features music written by women composers and performed by women musicians. With introductions by composers Joan Tower, Victoria Bond, Paula Kimper, and Karen Lefrak, the evening promises exciting contemporary music along with folder works by Clara Schumann, Fanny Hensel (Mendelssohn’s sister), and Amy Beach. Performing the pieces will be the renowned flutist Eugenia Zukerman, pianist Babette Hierholzer, lyric soprano Kimberly Kahan, and the Kleio Quartet.

Here, Zukerman plays a bit of Bach at a 2013 performance with pianist Anthony Newman:

“A Celebration of Women in Music” takes place at the Church of the Messiah in Rhinebeck on January 18 at 3pm. Tickets are $25. For more information, visit http://rhinebeckmusic.org/default.html.
