Outdoor Performance: “The Gardener of Montgomery Place and the Composer of Newburgh” Saxophone Quartet Sunday, May 26, 4 pm

In the early 19th century, the gardener at Montgomery Place was Alexander Gilson, an African American slave who, after being freed, stayed on as head gardener; he eventually opened up his own gardening business. The music of Newburgh, New York, composer Ulysses J. Alsdorf, whose grandfather was also a freed slave, was chosen to observe the 1909 Henry Hudson–Robert Fulton Celebration. His work will do the same for our event, 110 years later. Admission: Free; guests must bring their own lawn chairs. (In case of inclement weather, concert will be held in the Montgomery Place Coach House; the first 50 guests will be admitted).

This event is free.
