"Sloane’s son-in-law and daughter, Dr. and Mrs. Robert L. Patterson, Jr., gave this majestic property to the people of Westchester, “so that present and future generations ... will be able to use, see, and enjoy it [for] conservation, educational, cultural, intellectual, historical, and recreational purposes.” A County Park, the 130-acre estate includes a 26-room Georgian Revival mansion, carriage house, farm buildings, formal gardens, natural woodlands, rolling hills and meadows, and over two miles of trails.
"In September 2009, an innovative public-private partnership between Westchester County and Copland House was launched to realize the Pattersons’ sweeping vision, and establish a unique creative center at Merestead, which will serve as an extension of Copland House’s acclaimed musical, educational, and public programs. This extraordinary collaboration preserves a large parcel of open land, revives one of Westchester’s last great country estates, and creates a singular institution that champions American music and the arts—and makes all of this accessible to the public."

Founded in 1950 and dedicated to promoting the awareness and appreciation of dance throughout all the communities of Westchester County, New York, the Westchester Ballet Company has become known for excellence in performance and dance education. As The New York Times recently observed, "the company has flourished since 1986 under the artistic direction of Beth Fritz-Logrea and Jean Logrea."
The Westchester Ballet Company, which celebrated 50 years of dance in the year 2000, is one of the oldest community ballet companies in the United States. In 1950 Iris Merrick, a former student of Michel Fokine and soloist with the English Opera Company, established the Scarborough Children's Ballet Theatre, which officially became known as Westchester Ballet Company in 1954. Over the years Merrick's school developed a fine reputation in the County for artistic discipline and regular professional performances. Under her direction the Company's annual productions of The Nutcracker were staged at the Scarborough School's Beechwood Theatre and at the County Center in White Plains.
The Westchester Ballet Company members may join as student dancers as young as age 8 and progress by audition through the junior company and apprentice levels until they are accepted into the senior company. Training at the Company's school, the Logrea Dance Academy, is rigorous, emphasizing the development of strength and flexibility and the cultivation of artistic expression. Dancers receive instruction in healthy nutrition and safety. Senior company members participate in the nation's most prestigious summer training programs and festivals.
Our annual Nutcracker performance at the Westchester County Center features a cast of over 125 dancers and guest artists, with exquisite choreography, many special effects, and lavish costumes and scenery. Other ballets in the Company's repertoire include Peter and the Wolf, Coppelia, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Pas de Quatre, Les Sylphides, Graduation Ball, and Aurora's Wedding. Our dancers' dedication, discipline, and artistic expression are acclaimed by audiences of all ages. The Company's Board of Directors works closely with the artistic directors to provide Westchester audiences with professionally produced ballet performances at an affordable price, and to offer financial support to County students who seek professional training.

The Bard Music Festival is located at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY 12504 in Dutchess County.
From Bard Music Festival
History of the Festival "The Bard Music Festival was founded in 1990 to promote new ways of understanding and presenting the history of music to a contemporary audience. Each year, a single composer is chosen as the main subject. The biography of the composer, the influences and consequences of that composer's achievement, and all aspects of the musical culture surrounding the time and place of the composer's life are explored. Perhaps the most important dimensions of the festival are the ways in which it links music to the worlds of literature, painting, theater, philosophy, and politics and brings two kinds of audience together: those with a long history of interest in concert life and first-time listeners, who find the festival an ideal place to learn about and enjoy the riches of our musical past.
"The festival also seeks to bridge the worlds of performance and scholarship in new and exciting ways. As a result of this collaboration, each concert is curated and the concert format varies, so that different genres and instrumental groupings appear in a single program, breaking the mold of the standard vocal recital, piano recital, or quartet concert. Concerts are complemented by informative preconcert talks, panel discussions by renowned musicians and scholars, and special events. In addition, each season Princeton University Press publishes a book of essays, translations, and correspondence relating to the festival’s central figure.
"The Bard Music Festival weekends include orchestral concerts by the American Symphony Orchestra, chamber and choral music performances, panel discussions, and lectures by noted scholars."
