A brand-new music series presented each Thursday evening in August on our newly build stage in the gently sloping field just below the Stable. SoMA Catering will be onsite with a food truck.
Paul Green relocated to the Berkshires of western Massachusetts in 2013, where he serves on the faculties of Williams College, Skidmore College and SUNY Schenectady Community College, and the Berkshire Music School. He is active in the chamber music scenes in the Berkshires, Hudson Valley and New York Capital District. Recent activities include performances with The Musicians of Ma’alwyc, Concerts in the Village (Kinderhook, NY), the Berkshire Symphony and Close Encounters with Music.
As a noted pedagogue, Green has developed a course in Klezmer music, which he has taught at Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University and Skidmore and Williams Colleges. He has performed at the “Watch and Play” program for children at Tanglewood and given master classes at Boston University’s Tanglewood Institute. His activity as a jazz clarinetist in South Florida included engagements at the Lotz Music Series, Miami’s Jazz in the Gables and the Jazz Summit in Fort Lauderdale. Jazz appearances in New England have included the Music and More festival in New Marlborough, Made in the Berkshires in Pittsfield and the Green Street Café in Northampton, all in Massachusetts.
His interest in jazz and Jewish music has inspired Green to create his own arrangements and compositions of jazz-klezmer fusion. Intrigued by the rigors of jazz harmony and the power of Jewish melody, he weaves the best of both genres together in a compelling mix that allow audiences to experience music in fresh new ways. He has produced two CDs with his band Two Worlds that explore this interest. The latest, “A Bissel Rhythm” was named one of the Best Jazz Albums of 2019 by the Chicago Tribune.
