Hudson Opera House Feasts Again!

The Hudson Opera House is both impossible and easy to overlook.  Impossible because its doors are always open, and something is always going on there.  Easy, because most of what happens there is not for the sort of people who showed up on Saturday, April 30 at HOH’s annual Moveable Feast fundraiser. Last year, HOH presented 1125 programs, 80% of them free.  In addition to hosting its fair share of headliners, HOH reaches deep into the community to draw out the early readers, arty kids, would-be artists and writers, both children and adults, and puts them together with experts who can teach them how to do something new or how to get better at something they already love doing.  Until you’ve seen a bunch of high school girls in rehearsal tights with their dance shoes slung over the shoulders, saying a lingering good-bye in front of HOH in the late afternoon, you don’t know the real Hudson Opera House.

Jennifer Merschdorf, Brock Ganeles, Tom Froese, and Valerie Balint, all members of the HOH board.
