  • Tom Chapin will appear at Bethel Woods this September. Tickets for his show and others will go on sale on June 1.




Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has announced its line-up of Event Gallery performances for the fall of 2014. This year will feature acts including Tom Chapin on Sept. 13, The Last Waltz Live on Sept. 26, Phil Vassar on Oct. 9, and George Winston on Nov. 14; as well as the latest installment in the Shandelee Music Series with a performance by Lana Trotovsek and Anna Shelest on Sept. 7.

Tickets for all five performances will go on sale on Sunday, June 1, at 10 a.m. at www.BethelWoodsCenter.org, Ticketmaster, or by phone at 845-583-2060.

In a career that spans five decades, 23 albums and three Grammy awards, the multi-talented singer/songwriter/guitarist, Tom Chapin, has covered an incredible amount of creative ground. Called by The New York Times “one of the great personalities in contemporary folk music,” Chapin will perform at Bethel Woods on Saturday, Sept. 13 at 8 p.m.

On Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, 1976, the legendary rock group The Band performed The Last Waltz, their “farewell concert appearance” at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, Ca. The concert saw The Band joined by more than a dozen all-star special guests, many of whom were and are considered the living legends of their time. Today, the not for profit organization, Music in Common, in conjunction with legendary New England based jam band, The Rev Tor Band, present a live performance of the classic film. The show will come to Bethel Woods on Friday, Sept. 26, at 8 p.m.

Phil Vassar has a career that has seen the release of eight albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year, and countless hits including “Carlene,” “Last Day of My Life” and “American Child.” Vassar will perform at Bethel Woods on Thursday, Oct. 9, at 8 p.m.

Multi-talented pianist, George Winston has released 13 solo piano albums since 1972. He is presently concentrating mainly on live performances, and most of the time he is touring playing solo piano concerts, solo guitar concerts, solo harmonica concerts, and solo piano dances (with RandB and slow dance songs). He will bring his talents to Bethel Woods on Friday, Nov. 14, at 8 p.m.

As part of the 2014 Shandelee Music Series, violinist Lana Trotovsek and pianist Anna Shelest will perform at Bethel Woods on Sept. 7. Trotovsek made her debut with the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra to standing ovations and ecstatic reviews. She has since given recitals in the United Kingdom, where she has performed at Wigmore Hall, King’s Place, Cadogan Hall, St. John’s Smith Square and St. Martin in the Fields.

Shelest, hailed by The New York Times as a pianist of “fiery sensibility and warm touch,” has performed on some of the world’s greatest stages such as Carnegie Hall in New York City, The Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory and Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. In June 2011, she was the first to present a recital at the newly rebuilt 7 World Trade Center in New York City.
