On demand for one week only, the violinist and founder of The Atterbury Sessions takes the stage in the finale of the series at New York's historic Atterbury House.

St. John is joined by good friends harpist Bridget Kibbey and bassist Eddy Khaimovich in a program that spans from Bach's Sonata No. 3 for solo violin to Cuban, Klezmer, and Celtic tunes.

This concert is no longer available on demand.

Lara St. John, known for her own broad musical tastes and entrepreneurial spirit, said of her motivation to found the new series, “I’ve spent a great deal of time thinking of my fellow musicians, who have been badly hurt by the loss of employment and the broad prohibitions against live concerts. I hope that this series will, in a small way, provide some colleagues with performance outlets and offer audiences a little respite from the harsh realities of the pandemic.”

See the full schedule below.

Produced by and funded entirely by private donations, the series is produced in cooperation with the not-for-profit Paracademia center for music and #collaborative arts. Milica Paranosic, founder and executive director of Paracademia said, “At this challenging time of COVID-19 and its devastating impact on education and the arts, The Atterbury Sessions speak to the need to nurture and revitalize our artistic output through community efforts and collaborative production.”

Built in 1871 by architect Robert Mook and reimagined by Grosvenor Atterbury of McKim, Mead & White in 1909, the Atterbury House, located at 131 E. 70th Street in New York City, is considered one of the iconic architectural contributions of its time.
