NOW THROUGH OCT. 24: Masquerade: The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber

One of the most successful musical theater composers of all time takes audiences behind the scenes in Masquerade! This NY premiere features stories and songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s remarkable life and celebrated work. A funny and warm musical portrait and a concert for the theater offers an intimate look at Lloyd Webber’s five decades in the spotlight and beyond, from his quirky family and bohemian youth in London to the creation of such smash hits as Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Sunset Boulevard and many more. You’ll hear new and sometimes unexpected interpretations of his best-loved songs and rediscovered gems.

NOW THROUGH DECEMBER 31: Artwork by the Mental Health Community

ArtsWestchester presents Visions 2021: Unmasked, a virtual exhibition of artwork by the Mental Health Community. For more than 35 years, ArtsWestchester has partnered with the Westchester County Department of Community Mental Health to provide local mental health sites with art programs. These programs include multi-session, art-making workshops, one-time musical performances and an annual exhibit. The art shown during this exhibit invites the public to better understand that those diagnosed with mental illnesses are no different than anyone else.  In partnership with Westchester County Government, Office of Mental Health and Rockland Psychiatric Center, ArtsWestchester presents Visions 2021: Unmasked.


SUN, OCT. 24: Hudson River Potters | 2021 Fall Show and Sale

Over four weekends in October, ceramic artisans – Hudson River Potters – from the Hudson Valley sell unique hand-made functional and decorative crafts at the historic farmhouse set on acres of parkland. Farmers’ Market every Sunday. Petting zoo, pumpkin rides, music and picnic facilities. Perfect for holiday shopping: unique gifts for Christmas, Chanukah, and Thanksgiving. Times vary.

New Choral Society

SAT, OCT. 23 AND SUN, OCT. 24: Carmina Burana

This weekend, New Choral Society will return with in-person concerts of Carl Orff’s dramatic cantata Carmina Burana with participation from the Westchester Children’s Chorus. Both performances will be followed by an outdoor champagne toast to celebrate the group’s return to live performance. Begins at 8pm.


FRI, OCT. 22 THROUGH NOV. 22: Connections

Oak&Oil Gallery presents Connections, an exhibition of paintings by Richard Lang Chandler. Chandler is drawn to both the art of cityscape and landscape and the powerful connections within these environments. While his work remain rooted in reality, they reveal unseen forces that continuously exert themselves against the fixed boundaries of observed forms. His buildings undulate, his skies and his sidewalks are wildly dappled, and his perspectives head towards a compelling narrative. The rhythms of nature and the world unfold in the connectedness of the scenes unfolding around us. This collection represents the urgency of life and the visceral experience of our connections to one another and our environment.

The East Village Comes to Verplanck

For just a few moments, it felt much like a time warp, in which I was back in the Sixties in the East Village searching for some abandoned church or obscure place where there was an arts happening going on. It was always some hard-to-find place like the one in Verplank, NY, which just opened its doors to the public.
