HUDSON — The Hudson Area Library invites you to attend a salon concert to benefit the library on Sunday, May 6 at 4 p.m. at a private residence in Hudson. Violinist Emily Daggett Smith and pianist Tanya Gabrielian will perform an intimate recital of works by Janacek, Saariaho, Pärt, Mozart, and Franck. A reception with hors d’oeuvres & wine will follow.

A member of Brooklyn-based chamber orchestra The Knights, Emily embraces their championship of classical masterpieces and advocacy for new music in her own solo recitals, imparting her “gracefulness and easy rapport” (Boston Globe) to a program of mixed repertoire. She is joined by Tanya Gabrielian, hailed by the London Times as a “pianist of powerful physical and imaginative muscle,” who has captivated audiences worldwide with her gripping performances.

Tickets are $40 each and seats can be reserved online by visiting, or by stopping at the library to pay by check or credit card in person. For further information call 518-828-1792 x101. Once you have made a reservation you will be given the address of the home.
