There is a large and vibrant community that counts on The Tarrytown Music Hall for many reasons, including the millions of dollars generated in visitor-related spending. Pre-show dining and shopping fills restaurants and retail in and around Main Street. Our closure of now 40 weeks affects our entire community, which is why we are announcing a special “Angel” sponsorship program for everyone: businesses, individuals, and families. Angels will sponsor Night-In With The Music Hall, a curated, livestream concert series, at a donation level of $500. We are looking for 52 Angels, one for every week of 2021, Angels as dedicated as we are to keeping the arts alive.
To quote a heartfelt message from one of our recently featured artists: “As this unfathomable year comes to a close, and we head into the unknown of tomorrow, artists and artist-friendly venues must stick together. At a time when the arts are needed more than ever, we need not go it alone. If music has ever provided comfort for your broken heart, or helped to ease your restless spirit…” become a Music Hall Angel Today!

One of the most engaging and successful ensembles in the history of Irish music, Cherish the Ladies has shared timeless Irish traditions with audiences worldwide for thirty-five years. In this special Celtic Christmas program, the Ladies put their signature mark on classic carols such as “Angels we Have Heard on High”, “Joy to the World”, “Hark the Herald Angel Sing” and “Silent Night,” in arrangements that highlight the group’s unique Celtic instrumentation, beautiful harmonies, and spectacular step dancing.
