In preparation for the coming series, Classic on Hudson is currently focused on fundraising efforts to support the program. An intimate performance in a unique space seems like the best way to get started. On Saturday, September 6 at 6pm, Hudson housewares store and art gallery TK Home and Garden will host “An Evening of Classical and Tango” with Helena Baillie (violin) and Alexander Henry (guitar) in its second-floor gallery space. Pieces from Bach, Bartok, and Paganini, plus tango pieces and more, will be on the set list for the event. And with this group’s deep reach into the performing community, one should expect the unexpected.

Come support what will be a stellar night of music for a great cause, and allow yourself to be an active contributor to the latest revolution.
