Hyde Hall

Music from the Archives of Hyde Hall

New album scheduled for release in early 2021 by the Musicians of Ma’alwyck

The Musicians of Ma’alwyck (Ann-Marie Barker Schwartz, Director, and violinist, Sten Isachsen, guitarist,  Norman Thibodeau, flute) a Scotia-based ensemble, have successfully wrapped their week-long recording session in Hyde Hall’s dining room. The album will be available earlier in 2021.

“What a musically satisfying week we spent recording and filming at Hyde Hall. Musicians of Ma’alwyck had six wonderful days to record a CD with delightful and musically substantial works including an arrangement of Auber’s “Le Philtre,” drawn from Hyde Hall’s musical archives, and to film a concert that will be streamed later this year. All of the repertory was instrumental opera transcriptions, with the exception of the charming Otsego Polka! Working in this very special historic site with staff members who are so passionate and committed to Hyde Hall and its story, made the project truly a labor of love for all of us. The acoustic in the dining room, where we recorded the CD was warm and detailed, and the inner courtyard offered the perfect setting for the concert filming. Look for a release of the CD in the winter of 2021. More information will be available about the concert to be streamed soon.”
 —Ann Marie Schwartz, Director of the Musicians of Ma’alwyck

Eight is Eneuf to Perform at Hyde Hall on July 11

Thursday, July 11, 2019 – 6:30pm-8:30pm at Hyde Hall

In 2012, eight friends decided to add another evening of singing to their calendars and 8 Is Enough was born. However, they soon realized that 8 was not enough, and another voice was added. They went from 8 members to 9 (neuf), becoming 8 Is Eneuf. Now occasionally singing with eleven members, the group performs in theaters, churches, museums, bars, at weddings, private parties, and other special events.

The evening features Susan Snelson (soprano), Kerstin Green (soprano), Laura Harris (alto), Marcia Bowne (alto), Janine Sibella, (alto), Helen Benlisa (tenor), Chris Karmosky (tenor), John Willis (tenor), Casey Thomas (bass baritone), Chris Shields (bass).
