ROBBIE DUPREE AND FRIENDS

 Opus 40's Labor Day weekend concerts have become everyone's favorite way to say so long to summer, and this year we're particularly thrilled to present a local legend and international favorite. Robbie Dupree's "Steal Away" has been played over three million times on the radio, and no one ever gets tired of it.

 

 But there's so much more to Robbie. His roots are in the roots of American music, and he performs it with a verve and passion that is inexhaustible. He puts on a great show, and he'll be bringing it all to Opus 40 on September 5.

 

Gates will open at 4:30, concert starts at 5. Lawn seating. Refreshments will be sold. Sorry, no dogs allowed.

 

Tickets for Robbie Dupree and Friends are $30 in advance, $40 at the gate. You may make reservations here through PayPal, or you can call 845-246-3400 to make reservations by credit card. Tickets can be purchased at the Opus 40 admissions office. They will also be available at selected local merchants.

with Kevin VanHentenryckThe Opus 40 Stone Carving Workshop is a guided half day, one day or two day session, with instruction from master sculptor Kevin VanHentenryck, designed to teach everyone the ancient art of stone carving. From concept to surface finish, both hand and pneumatic carving techniques will be covered. Whether you’re a kid or an old-timer, everyone is carving within the first twenty minutes, and everyone will take home their very own piece of the Catskills with their carving on it.

 

JOIN US – learn to work the ancient stone – and take your carving with you.It’s not as hard as you think! Art experience, or “talent” not required, and it’s FUN!!!

Kevin VanHentenryck

He is a self-taught sculptor, has been a lover of stone his whole life, and a sculptor of it since 1975. As a child he saw faces in tree bark, and carried home small stones from family vacations.

In 1975 while studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Art, he saw an early Ken Russell film called The Savage Messiah, about the life of sculptor Henri Gaudier, and  “...Stone is ancient when compared to humans. Even a young stone like our Catskill mountain bluestone is 360 million years old, and what we carve into the stone may last a very long time.”

VanHentenryck (known for his life size sculpture of Rip VanWinkle at the summit of Hunter Mountain) has been working for almost 30 years from his studio, Custom Sculpture in Westkill, N.Y., to produce a wide variety of sculpture, as well as the finest carved/ sculptural signs in the region.
