Bringing the Community Together through the Arts



Manhattan in the Mountains: Klezmer with David Krakauer 

“David Krakauer is such an overwhelmingly expressive clarinetist who moves so seamlessly between different genres that for a minute you’d almost think that there’s no appreciable difference between jazz, klezmer and formal classical music.” – The Wall Street Journal, September 26, 2013

Only a select few artists have the ability to convey their message to the back row, to galvanize an audience with a visceral power that connects on a universal level. David Krakauer is such an artist. Widely considered one of the greatest clarinetists on the planet, he has been praised internationally as a key innovator in modern klezmer as well as a major voice in classical music.

Berkshire Bach Ensemble 


“So great was the rhythmic swing, pictorial effect and overall vitality that listeners near the stage seemed in danger at times of having the music dance right into their laps.” – Berkshire Eagle

Four Nations Ensemble


“From its first notes, the quieter sounds of the strings and fortepiano were perfectly balanced, and dynamic changes were not less dramatic in the hands of these players. It was wonderful to hear such an ensemble.”~Howard Vogel, The Woodstock Times, NY

National Dance Institute Mountain Top Summer Residency Performance

“The arts open your heart and mind to possibilities that are limitless. They are pathways that touch upon our brains and emotions and bring sustenance to imagination. Human beings’ greatest form of communication, they walk in tandem with science and play, and best describe what it is to be human.”

-Jacques d’Amboise, Founder of NDI
