Seasonal Sounds

Beech Tree Concert Series

Enjoy the glorious grounds of Old Westbury Gardens and listen to some stirring sounds, at the opening of the Beech Tree Concert series. Artist-in-residence cellist Suzanne Mueller performs a duo concert with her Cross Island ensemble member pianist Elinor Abrams Zyas. The program includes music by Igor Stravinsky, George Gershwin, Antonin Dvorak, Jacques Offenbach, Cesar Cui, Carl Maria von Weber, Manuel de Falla, Richard Rodney Bennett, Astor Piazzolla, Paul Carlon, Bettie Ross, and Cheryl Edelman. Their repertoire is devoted to a mixture of well-loved, familiar composers and works blended with quality music that is unfamiliar, often resulting from collaborations with composers and arrangers. Bring your lawn chair or blanket and settle in for a relaxing afternoon under the Gardens’ historic beech tree, weather permitting.
