The meal will conclude with the popular Courthouse Cobbler. Dinner also features a cash bar and music by the Roadhouse Blues Band. The Mettawee River Theater Company will once again offer a procession of whimsically dressed characters and puppets. “The beauty of this event is that it is a coming together of such a variety of people, including artists, farmers, politicians, business leaders – you never know who you’re going to meet,” said Farringer. Dignitaries attending this year include Congressman Bill Owens, State Senator Betty Little, Assemblyman Tony Jordan, and the new president of SUNY Adirondack, Dr. Kristine Duffy. On Sunday, July 28 at noon, the CC will host the Al Fresco Chefs’ Brunch featuring entrees prepared by area chefs. Offerings include frittata with roasted summer vegetables, Grand Marnier French Toast, pulled pork sliders, summer Greek salad, New England clam chowder, and Battenkill Creamery’s strawberry ice cream.

The closeness of two players navigating their hand crossings and sharing their musical impulses can be as beautiful as a choreographed pas de deux. The concert offers a fascinating group of transcriptions by celebrated composers for piano duet, as well as Bach organ preludes transcribed for cello and piano by Kodaly. Pianists performing include the acclaimed Alissa Leiser and Marc Ryser, director of Music b the Sea. Performing with them is violinist Lydia Forbes, cellist Scott Kluksdahl and MfS artistic director and violist Lila Brown. Admission is pay what you can, so everyone can attend, with $20 suggested.
