Piano by Nature Presents ‘AMERICAN DREAMS’

Recurring event see all

April 9 @ 7:00 pm

On April 9th and 10th, Piano by Nature will present a set of two live concerts entitled American Dreams, and is greatly looking forward to presenting these April 9th and 10th LIVE concerts at the beautiful Hand House, especially after having no live concerts since November of 2021. Rouses Point master violinist Marilyn Reynolds and Westport resident concert pianist Rose Chancler join forces to create a program of incredible beauty and intensity, held in the architectural and acoustical majesty of Elizabethtown’s Hand House parlor. The program includes the stunning pairing of piano and violin which will envelop the senses with the characteristic warm sonorities of both instruments. This live event explores the relationships and connections of four influential composers – Johannes Brahms, Antonin Dvorak, Charles Ives, and William Grant Still – and as an added bonus, Piano by Nature will also be celebrating the addition of a new 7-ft. Steinway from our beloved friend Russell Ames’ estate – an exciting celebration that will continue into next season and beyond.

We will follow our traditional format of a Saturday night concert at 7PM and a Sunday afternoon concert at 3PM. The doors will be open at 6:15 on Saturday and 2:15 on Sunday, and we encourage attendees to arrive early to avoid lines at check-in. We will require that our attendees show proof of vaccination and wear masks at this time.

Tickets $20/person. Reservations are required and may be made by email ( or by phone (518-962-8899) and seats will be obtained on a first-come-first-served basis. There will be no walk-up seating available.
