Harp strings resound through an Adirondack evening

Classical harpist Kathryn Sloat will perform her signature solo program “Moon and Stars” on Saturday, June 19 at 7:30 pm at Weatherwatch Farm in Saranac. Kathryn Sloat created her program around a nocturnal theme of moon and stars – hence the evening start-time. Seating will be provided under a canopy, but audience may bring their own more comfortable camp chairs and spill out onto the lawn. The one-hour solo concert (performed without intermission) will finish just as night begins to fall – how poetic! At the conclusion of the concert dessert and coffee will be served.

Among the mix of classical, contemporary, and popular works to be performed are Debussy’s “Clair de lune,” Britten’s “Nocturne,”Salzedo’s “Chanson dans la Nuit,” Henry Mancini’s “Moon River,” Ruby Aspinall’s “Night Dances,” Jin Hee Han’s “Morning Star,” J.E. Salazar’s “I See Stars in Your Eyes,” and Harvey Schmidt’s “Moonlight #2” from The Fantasticks.
