Not unlike a great jazz club, the concert house owes its unique vibe to a metaphysical alchemy. Certainly, the physical space itself is key: a renovated 19th- Century house, whose first floor has been transformed into an L-shaped recital hall with an intimacy and acoustics unmatched in the region. The other critical link is founder Deanna Relyea, a mezzo-soprano whose artistic vision, taste, personal warmth and empathetic embrace of the creative spirit have forged a very special environment. Like Relyea, the concert house itself has the soul of an artist.”
We at Kerrytown Concert House are dedicated to continuing the great work that Deanna Relyea established 38 years ago and nurtured for a quarter of a century. We agree with Mark Stryker: “…The concert house itself has the soul of an artist!” We are passionate caretakers of this special, intimate space, and it is an honor to bring world-class artists to our audiences in an up close and personal way.
