Glimmerglass Opera is collaborating with the Adirondack Museum to present “They Heard America Singing” on August 17. Enjoy a box supper, early 20th-century American music, and the incomparable views that surround the Adirondack Museum.

Join Glimmerglass Young American Artists Jamilyn Manning-White, Dominick Rodriguez, Adam Fry and Claire Shackleton for an evening of the music of Aaron Copland and Charles Ives, as well as songs that influenced both of these original composers. The program will include tunes that made up the fabric of American life at the turn of the 20th century: hymns, folk tunes, opera and a liberal sprinkling of ragtime.

The grounds open at 5:30 p.m. for those who have reserved a box supper. The cost of the box supper, including wine and the performance, is $75. The cost of the concert is $25. The performance itself will begin at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets for the concert will be available at the door. Limited seating will be available. We suggest guests bring lawn chairs or a blanket. Purchase tickets online or by calling the Adirondack Museum at (518) 352-7311, ext. 119.

Please be sure to order your box supper by Thursday, August 12, 2010.

The Adirondack Museum is located at Rt. 28N/30, Blue Mountain Lake, NY. If you’re in the area, or feel like taking a drive, we would love to see you.
