Marka Young, assistant concertmaster of the Hudson Valley Philharmonic (HVP) and violinist of the Hudson Valley String Quartet, stated, “We have organized this concert series to show the importance of the arts in the mid-Hudson region. We live and work here, making our community a better place through the arts.”
Fran Duffy of the HVP Orchestra Committee went on to say, “Our local leaders say arts are key to the financial and emotional health of the Hudson Valley region. The public should be aware that the Bardavon, home to the HVP since 1981, was close to eliminating the orchestra altogether: the only fully professional orchestra in the mid-Hudson region.”
