About

    

The Tower Music Series is a musical program founded in 2004 by members and friends of the Reformed Church of Poughkeepsie, New York. Our mission: to make the musical arts more accessible to members of our community by presenting a variety of quality musical programs in a friendly setting at an affordable price. Mindful of the need to give back to our community, the program places an emphasis on presenting local musicians in our concerts, although we do occasionally present noted musicians from outside the Hudson Valley.

As of 2016, we have presented 52 concerts. All concerts are performed at the Reformed Church in Poughkeepsie, a magnificent space designed by Charles Collens, the architect of Riverside Church, the Cloisters museum, and Thompson Memorial Library at Vassar College. Many of our concerts showcase the Reformed Church's recently installed Schantz pipe organ, considered by area organists to be one of the best instruments of its kind in the Hudson Valley.

The music we present in the Tower Music Series tends towards the various forms of classical music, ranging from Baroque to Romantic to modern Contemporary. However, we have branched out on occasion to present Celtic, Folk, and Jazz as part of the Series.

To make our concerts more accessible to our community, we present our concerts for a free-will offering of $15 instead of charging a strict admission fee. We count on the good will of our attendees and the financial backing of our supporters to help meet the costs of presenting these concerts.

                           Our concert site is handicapped accessible.
