Michael Gold ’73, who is organizing the concert and will also perform says, “The passion that integrates all these sounds started when they were students or faculty together at Poughkeepsie Day School. They all went on to pursue their love of music. If you thrive on musical authenticity or lived the early 70’s in the Hudson Valley you won't want to miss this exciting night of blues, folk, bluegrass, Renaissance, jazz and R&B.”There will be a suggested donation of $10 per person at the door.
