Chris Silva, Executive Director of the Bardavon since 1994, discusses the Bardavon’s upcoming programs and its fascinating history in the Hudson Valley. Many legendary performers have graced its stage in the past, including Mark Twain, Sarah Bernhardt, Frank Sinatra, and Houdini. When the Bardavon fell on hard times in the 1970s, citizens rallied to restore it. Its dramatic growth since then can be attributed to Mr. Silva’s excellent efforts such as overseeing the rescue (and management) of the Hudson Valley Philharmonic and daytime children’s programming. Recently performers have included Itzhak Perlman, Al Pacino, Patti LaBelle, Tony Bennett, and Bob Dylan, as well as classic motion pictures. Learn More:
