Regarding tickets, read the following information from Wave Hill:
“Performing Arts return to Wave Hill House and the elegant, gracious setting of Armor Hall, as we celebrate the re-opening of the historic mansion after a major, two-year renovation. With seven, distinctive events on Sunday afternoons at 2 pm, we pay tribute to the legacy of two illustrious, former residents— Arturo Toscanini and Mark Twain— and Wave Hill’s mission, connecting people to nature. The season opens on January 12 with the Sinfonietta of Riverdale, under the baton of Mark Mandarano.”

The Sinfonietta’s Season Continues…
June 1, 2014 Serenades
Brahms, Serenade No. 1 in D Major (nonet version)
The First Serenade by Johannes Brahms is known today as an orchestral work, but it was originally an intimate work for nine instruments. This concert presents a reconstruction of that original concept. Alongside this great classic are two nonets by American composers: the Divertimento by Walter Piston and an encore performance of Serenade by Byron Adams, commissioned by the Sinfonietta in 2012.
This performance takes place at the Riverdale Temple, 4545 Independence Avenue at 246th St. Riverdale, NY.
Tickets: $35 Adults, $25 Seniors, $15 Students

About the Sinfonietta
The Sinfonietta of Riverdale is a unique ensemble – large enough to perform chamber symphonies and small enough that each of its world-class musicians can be a featured soloist, with a repertoire that extends from the era of Bach to the present day.
The Sinfonietta will seek to enhance the artistic environment of Riverdale and the surrounding community by presenting great classical and modern music in our own neighborhood. We also serve as an educational resource by presenting children’s concerts and by collaborating with local schools and youth organizations.
