Celebrate this holiday season at Magazzino Italian Art! Join us on Friday, December 15 from 5:00 to 7:00pm. for a toast to the new year and a concert by The Brasiles Ensemble, a Highlands quintet of delightful voices, accompanied by lute and piano.

The quintet takes their unusual name from founder Madeleine DeNitto’s ancestors, whose Italian last name, Brasiles, is reminiscent of the life her family left behind to start a new chapter in the U.S. After the great success of the Nocturnal Concert in November 2013, the group has had a pivotal role in the holiday celebrations of many cultural institutions in Philipstown, New York, such as the Dickensian caroling performed on Cold Spring's Main Street and at Boscobel's annual Twilight Tours, as well as concerts at Cold Spring's Chapel of Restoration and St. Philip's Church in Garrison.

At Magazzino, the festivities will start at 5:00pm with light refreshments offered prior to the concert beginning at 6:00pm. The evening's repertoire of The Brasiles Ensemble will include Italian arias, madrigals and Gregorian Latin masterpieces, lasting approximately 45 minutes.

Due to Magazzino's fixed parking capacity, we encourage guests to board our shuttles from and to the Cold Spring train station parking lot beginning at 4:00pm, with service extended until 7:30pm.

As seating is limited, RSVP for this event is required.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
