APRIL 6 SPRING VOLUNTEER DAY PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE A CODE FOR 50% OFF ALL TICKETS. REGISTER TO VOLUNTEER HERE.

A very special evening of food, singing, dancing, and an acoustic candlelit midnight concert of J. S. Bach’s unaccompanied sonatas and partitas performed by Paul Peabody.

Many Ashokan Music & Dance campers will remember Paul’s midnight candlelit Bach concerts in the acoustically wonderful Pewter Shop in the 1990s. We’ve asked Paul back to recreate one of those evenings anew.

The evening includes:

  • 6pm: a bountiful dinner by Chef Bill Warnes
  • 7pm: Pub sing with John Roberts and a fiddle jam with Paul, Jay, & Molly
  • 8pm: Waltzes, contras, and squares
  • 11pm: Snacks
  • 11:30: A pre-concert talk with Paul Peabody
  • Midnight: Paul performs Bach’s unaccompanied sonatas and partitas on violin AND viola!

Come for one portion of the evening or stay all night. Overnight bunks & breakfast available.


About Paul Peabody:

Previously concert master with the New York City Ballet Orchestra, Paul Peabody is the only violinist ever to appear on the same stage with Bill Monroe (the father of Bluegrass music), Charles Wuorinen, and Wyclef Jean (founder of the Fugees). He played Norwegian style fiddle in the movie Fargo, and recorded an extended solo on “Smile” with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, in a rendition of his favorite song. Receiving a special Grammy citation for his celtic fiddle work on “My Heart Will Go On,” he performed on the Grammys with Celine Dion. He is also the only violinist to have played his Stradiqarius on “Fishbowl Reef” in St. John, USV Islands! These are just a very few of the unusual places he has played the violin.
