Programs & Events
Often a place of silence and meditation, the House of the Redeemer is also a place of music and verse, and varied programs. To many, the House is where insights and ideas are originated and shared in a beautiful and unique setting. Please see the Calendar for information about upcoming programs and events at the House.
Fabbri Chamber Concerts
Launched in October 1999, Fabbri Chamber Concerts presents an annual series of three concerts at the House of the Redeemer, offering exciting and creative programs played by the finest artists. Past performances have included the world-renowned artists Stanley Drucker, clarinetist; Andre Emelianoff, cellist; and Carol Wincenc, flutist. Pianist and Artistic Director of the series, Kazuko Hayami, praised by the New York Times for playing that “danced and glittered deliciously,” frequently joins the performances.
Presented in an ideal chamber music setting, the concerts take place in the elegant wood-paneled Italian Renaissance library of the House of the Redeemer. This beautiful space with its warm acoustics, the brief introductory remarks offered for each piece, and the opportunity to meet the artists at a reception following the concert allow audiences to share a unique and intimate musical salon experience.
The House has been noted by the New York Times as embodying “the artisanship of a bygone era.” The House and its library were first opened with a private recital by violinist Fritz Kreisler in 1917. Concerts were often performed in the library while Mrs. Fabbri was in residence. The Fabbri Chamber Concerts continues the musical tradition begun by the Fabbri family.
