What’s Happening at Olana


Upcoming Event

Live in the Landscape Concert Series: Keely Schmerber

Keely will perform works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, and Debussy on a magnificent Steinway Grand Piano while the audience also enjoys the architecture and views.

Weather UPDATE: Since the entire weekend’s weather is looking so dismal, we have decided to run this concert on Saturday evening outside or inside. So weather permitting, we will be outside on the east lawn; if inclement weather we will be in the Museum Shop/Visitor Center building at the top of the hill. Join us!

Saturday, June 27, 7-9pm

Insider Perspective

“The Great Book of Nature is always open and there are no blank leaves for the artist.” – Frederic Church, 1898

To be at Olana on any given day is to sense Church’s own celebratory voice for all he created here, and to feel it echoed in the contemporary artists who come here for their own inspiration.
