  • The trumpeter and composer returns with his brass ensemble band to Manitoga on October 1.

October 1. Trumpeter and composer Ben Neill and his brass ensemble return to Manitoga, the home of designer Russel Wright, to once again present Neill's site-specific work celebrating the historic structure and its surroundings. Mirroring Wright's design and the siting of the sleek midcentury modern house, Manitoga is, according to Neill, "a very harmonious blending of architecture and the natural environment." During the performance benefiting the continued operation of the facility, which is now an arts and design center, Neill and the other musicians will move through its wooded grounds playing their specially constructed "mutantrumpet" and "phonemophones." Intrigued? Get thee to Garrison. Guests are asked to arrive at 2:30 to be seated for a prompt 3pm start. Advance reservations are still available at BrownPaperTickets.com. No tickets will be sold at the door.$45 general public, $20 children under 18, $35 members, $125 for performance and reception with artists. Garrison. (845) 424-3812; Visitmanitoga.org.
