Montgomery Place Spring Salon Series Outdoor Performance: “The Gardener of Montgomery Place and the Composer of Newburgh” Saxophone Quartet

In the early 19th century, the gardener at Montgomery Place was Alexander Gilson, an African American slave who, after being freed, stayed on as head gardener; he eventually opened up his own gardening business. The music of Newburgh, New York, composer Ulysses J. Alsdorf, whose grandfather was also a freed slave, was chosen to observe the 1909 Henry Hudson–Robert Fulton Celebration. His work will do the same for our event, 110 years later.

Admission: Free; guests must bring their own lawn chairs. (In case of inclement weather, concert will be held in the Montgomery Place Coach House; the first 50 guests will be admitted).
