Manhattan String Quartet

April 3. The Ulster Chamber Series, now in its 43rd year, presents the much-demanded return of the Manhattan String Quartet. Hailed as “a national treasure” by the Boston Globe, the 41-year-old MSQ has made its name largely through its stunning performances of 20th-century masters; its bar-raising adaptations of Shostakovich’s cycle of 15 string quartets remain the standard to which subsequent chamber outfits aspire. Comprised of violinists Eric Lewis and Calvin Wiersma, violist John Dexter, and cellist Chris Finckel, the foursome regularly plays to sold-out audiences in Europe and Japan. The series holds forth in the Church of the Holy Cross, a setting as acoustically grand as befits this esteemed group’s music. 3pm. $20, $15. Kingston. (845) 340-9434;

  • Follow that Spark: Brooklyn Designer Turns Farm Visit into Book that Gives Back

    In August, Brooklyn-based digital designer Michelle Layne Lawson read an article on Chronogram's website about Tomorrow, Tomorrow, a 150-acre farm animal sanctuary in Columbia County that was struggling to raise funds to stay afloat. Within a few days, Lawson was on her way up to Hudson to visit the farm. And what began as casual cute animal pics turned into a coffee table book that is being sold to raise funds for the sanctuary and a renewed sense of creative vocation. Don't mind us, we're just sobbing over here.
