Hyde Hall Offers Peak

Into Elegance, Music

ON HYDE BAY – Jon Maney wants Hyde Hall to be more than just a house museum – (although, what a house!)

He wants it to be a destination for music and arts.

“We’ve done a lot of classical music, but we need more contemporary music,” said the National Landmark’s executive director. “George Clarke loved jazz, so we want to start having a whole range of music from different eras.”

On Oct. 6, the Musicians of Ma’alwyck, an Albany-based band that’s become the museum’s house band, will debut Max Caplan’s “The Hyde Sextet,” a work scored for flute, harp and string quartet and inspired by the ghost of Hyde Hall.

Caplan, is the composer of the suffrage-themed opera “Aleda,” which premiered in June 2018.

“It’s a really spooky piece that’s in the spirit of the season,” said Maney.

‘Drop’ Cannonball Artifact At Civil War Weekend

ACTION AT HYDE HALL

Civil War Reenactment

Features ‘Drop’ Cannonball

Experience a Civil War-era encampment featuring soldiers in authentic uniforms, battle drills and performing tactical maneuvers as Hyde Hall’s Civil War Weekend continues today. Above, 15-year  veterans of reenactments, Jacob Manley and his father Richard, Hartwick, show off a Civil War era tent.  At right, re-enactor Tim Walker, Cooperstown, holds one of his prize artifacts, a certified unexploded 12-pound cannonball from Little Round Top at Gettysburg. In the heat of battle, soldiers would load cannons quickly, sometimes dropping a cannonball, earning them the name “drops.” Battle simulations at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., free and open to the public. Concert of Civil War era songs performed by Ma’alwyck at 7 p.m., cost $10.  Reservations recommended.(Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
