February 9.

Sneed will be joined for the performance by Metropolitan Opera soprano Brandie Sutton, actor/writer Karen Chilton, baritone Justin Michael Austin, and several chamber musicians. ("The Golden Age of Song" shines March 17; "Sanctified Soul: 1960s to Today" testifies April 21.) 7:30pm. $25-$45. Annandale-on-Hudson. (845) 758-7900.
