Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew clearly recalls, “The principal of Washington Irving announcing over the loudspeakers, ‘Welcome to another day at WI, overlooking the majestic Hudson Valley.’” Decades removed from her school days in Tarrytown, she now lives in Minneapolis and has become a respected novelist, writing instructor and spiritual director.
A variety of popular classics, melodies, and waltzes, Neapolitan songs, well known popular operatic gems, and dancers are all part of the “Autumn Frolic” presented by the Polish-American Folk Dance Company, Saturday, September 13, 7:30 p.m. at the Irvington High School auditorium.
Dancers in their native period costumes will be performing the “Polonaise,” and the Royal Piper will incant “Amazing Grace” as a tribute to 9/11. Both a string quartet, with musicians from the New York and Warsaw Philharmonics, and a vocal quartet composed of singers from the Houston and New York City Operas will delight you with their individual selections, a bevy of glorious duets and the famous quartet from “Rigoletto”. The evening performances are a presentation of River Rock Landscapes , NoWa Productions. Tickets are available at the door, or at autumnfrolic.brownpapertickets.com.
