CONCERTS, WORKSHOPS, AND MORE
Hubbard Hall is a remarkable place to hear music. The space is intimate (the Hall seats 150 people), the acoustics are wonderful, and the audience is always lively and attentive.
Based on the legendary model of the Battenkill Chorale, Hubbard Hall is thrilled to launch its first-ever Youth Chorale in fall 2015. This group of teens will rehearse and perform as part of professional performances in the Hall and have opportunities to tour throughout the region to schools, community centers and retirement communities.
The group meets on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00pm in the Hubbard Hall Mainstage.

Internationally renown cellist Florian Kitt
Austrian cellist, Florian Kitt returns to Hubbard Hall. With a cello made by Shushan Luthier Geoffrey Ovington, his performance has been described as “masterly, a blazingly impressive exhibition of really big playing” by The Daily Telegraph. Florian Kitt is one of the best exponents of the contemporary cello repertoire. Following his debut at the Konzerthaus in Vienna 1964 he has appeared as soloist with many leading orchestras and conductors, giving cello recitals, and made numerous recordings of his extensive repertoire drawing from both classical and romantic works.
Local Singer-Songwriter and Musician Bob Warren
Hubbard Hall is thrilled to welcome back Bob Warren and his music that reflects a poetic artistry that is both articulate and evocative. From musicals to rock and everything in between, Bob’s music shares his humor, wit, and heart, while still staying true to his folk troubadour roots. His songs address a wide range of topics from a portrait of The Battenkill to an adrenaline rush of a song about his former noisy neighbors. He writes social commentary about the peace movement, born again philosophy, and ongoing debates on gun violence, yet keeps his humor when writing for the AARP crowd. Fun for the whole family, there are even catchy, soulful tunes that just feel good like a summer’s day at the beach – perfect for a springtime thaw!
