Tickets to the event cost $75.

The Circa 1799 Barn (105 Simons Road / Ancramdale NY 12503) is a mammoth structure located in a beautiful grassy field. Gala attendees will be able to choose where they enjoy the festivities — outdoors, or inside the cavernous barn, which will have all four sides open to the free flow of air and people throughout the event.

Joining us will be Sheryl Staples, Principal Associate Concertmaster; Yulia Ziskel, First Violin; Cong Wu, Assistant Principal Viola; and Eric Bartlett, recently retired Assistant Principal Cello. The group will be playing Mozart's String Quartet No. 17 in B-flat Major ("Hunt"), K. 458, and Schubert's String Quartet No. 13 in A minor ("Rosamunde"), D 804, Op. 29.
