    Delaware County

    Franklin Stage Company Hosts: Collision Ensemble

    An unmissable concert event
    Concert Time: 8:00pm

    Collision Ensemble is an improvisational collective of musical and visual artists.
    The core of the group is made up of a quartet of SUNY-Oneonta music department faculty: Engineers/Sound Manipulators Andris Balins and Brett Masteller along with Drummers/Percussionists Blake Fleming and Julie Licata.

    Together the group weaves an exotic tapestry of polyrhythmic percussion amid layers of three dimensional soundscapes... "like watching a movie soundtrack come to life, a soundtrack to a film you've never seen before, a film that hasn't even been made yet." Compelling, visceral, spontaneous, Collision Ensemble paints with sound and inspires audiences to join them on an exhilarating creative journey.

    The Franklin Stage Company was founded on the principle that great theatre should be accessible to all. Admission to our productions is always Free (donations gratefully accepted).
    Reservations recommended.

  • Schlachtfest at Crystal Brook Mountain Brauhaus Resort

    Greene County

    Schlachtfest is a one of a kind experience that is sure to be fun for the whole family and one for the scrapbook. Celebrated 4 times annunally throughout the fall, festivities include live German/American music by a renowned German band, authentic German/American cuisine, abundant German beer on tap, topped with a traditional Schlachtfest celebration parade lead by our very own Master of Ceremonies.

    A Schlachtfest is a traditional German celebration going back thousands of years, celebrating the pig, as pork is traditionally a staple in the German diet. Each fall townspeople would harvest their pigs and process them into various roasts, sausages, soups and other delicacies making sure to utilize the entire pig without waste. Schlachtfest is a way for the German people to praise and celebrate the pig and all that it has done and provided for them throughout the year.

    Today we celebrate Schlachtfest to enjoy great food and drink as well as continuing a great cultural tradition. The evening starts with a traditional Schlachtfest dinner including Metzel soup, Sultze (headcheese), cucumber salad, fresh ham, bratwurst, blutwurst, liverwurst, hox, boiled potatoes, dumplings, sauerkraut, and finished off with our famous Napoleon for dessert. After the traditional meal is over the festivities continue including dance and parade. Following the parade, the pig is then raffled off for you to take home a piece of port for you to enjoy with your family. This is sure to be a night you will never forget! Starts at 6pm.
