THE UNION CITY CHAMBER PLAYERS
December 3, 2023
Sunday at 3:00 PM
$10 suggested donation at the door
The Union City Chamber Players return in a very special concert of folk and folk-inspired music, including masterworks from around the world by Ravel, Britten, Sarasate, Dvorak, and Bartok. Bernadette LaFond, mezzo-soprano, and Peter Borten, violin and viola, will be joined by Marina Korsakova-Kreyn, piano, and guest artist Nadine Scharman, flute.
The concert will showcase our vintage 1920s Knabe baby grand piano, acquired during the pandemic. All proceeds will be used to continue needed restoration work on this beautiful instrument so it can be used for many years to come. The piano will also need to be moved later in December due to renovation work planned to begin in January at the current location.
We think the music of the people is the ultimate source of our common musical culture and can help give us strength as we confront the division and uncertainty of the present moment. Please come celebrate our diverse roots on December 3 at 3 P.M.!
As always, we will offer wine and snacks after the performance so we can all catch up.
We are now thrilled to announce that Hudson Theatre Works will have a new future home! In recognition of our contribution to the arts and culture in Weehawken, Hudson Theatre Works has been given the opportunity to utilize the future Performing Arts Center currently planned for the Weehawken waterfront.
This is a huge honor and we couldn’t be happier to have our productions, classes and workshops enjoyed by an even wider audience in a more accessible venue. We are also looking forward to being of further benefit to Weehawken’s economic and cultural vitality.
THEATRE ON THE EDGE
Hudson Theatre Works is committed to a growing and adventurous community genuinely hungry for challenging performances. We choose material that is aesthetically diverse and rooted in authenticity. From highly theatrical world premieres to distilled re-imaginings of modern classics, we put the work first and embrace risk.
PRAISE FOR HUDSON THEATRE WORKS
"Hudson Theatre Works mounts an ambitious and fulfilling Eugene O'Neill Festival. Both shows succeed beyond expectations."
- Jim Testa, NJ Arts
"The current production of ‘Hughie’ at Weehawken’s Hudson Theatre Works—produced in rep with ‘Desire Under the Elms’ as part of the company’s O’Neill festival—captures the essence of O’Neill’s late little gem with impressive precision... the production is intimate, unfussy, and affecting.”
- Patrick Maley, Star Ledger
"Licato understands Shepard... [He] has gotten the talented cast all onto the same page. They feel the rhythms of Shepard’s language, they dare to jump from word to word, sentence to sentence without a net."
