Join us for an unforgettable midsummer party to benefit the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts. Celebrate SummerScape with an elegant evening in the company of some very special guests at Montgomery Place, the historic Hudson Valley estate that recently became part of the Bard campus. The evening begins with cocktails by James Beard Award winning mixologist Leo Robitschek, while taking in river views and tours of the property. Guests will enjoy a one-night-only performance by ballet stars Sergei Polunin and Natalia Osipova; a special appearance from Mx. Justin Vivian Bond, Blythe Danner ’65, Mary Stuart Masterson and Parker Posey; followed by dinner from fellow James Beard Award winner Rocco DiSpirito.
