The Hudson Area Library final Music in the Stacks, a series of free Sunday afternoon concerts featuring local and international artists and hosted by Hudson area youth organizations, features Patrick Higgins, a Hudson based experimental music composer, and is hosted by Operation Unite NY. Higgins has been described by The New Yorker magazine as one of the “prime movers of the local avant-garde”, and an “exacting avant-classical guitarist” by Time Out NY. His music has been performed in over 20 countries and at some of the world’s leading music festivals. Music in the Stacks concerts are held on the main floor of the library in the historic Hudson Armory, which is a large open space with unique acoustics. A reception follows the concerts with a chance for audience members to share their reactions and to interact with the musicians, youth emcees and each other. Audience members receive cultural passports, which are stamped at each concert. Each stamp entitles the passport holder one ticket in a raffle for a gift certificate to a Hudson music venue.
