Concerts at Farmstead Arts
Concerts at Farmstead Arts range from classical chamber music to folk and jazz. The setting is one of our beautiful galleries in the historic Farmhouse at Farmstead Arts which is transformed into an intimate concert hall. Limited seating allows the audience to hear and see the performers up close in a traditional “house concert” atmosphere. A reception is held after each concert with refreshments and an opportunity to meet and talk with the musicians. In the warmer months we also host concerts in the English Barn.

They are also members of the New York City-based A Capella group, Street Ready. Annie, Jenna, and Allison are running the New York City Marathon on November 5th to support Team For Kids, a group that, through school-based programs, free youth events, and a collection of digital resources, brings free running and fitness programs to students across the country.
Annie Schulenburg will be joined by her former piano teacher, Cinder LeDell of Basking Ridge, who will be playing two of her recent piano compositions. Another of Cinder’s students, Joshua Narsu, a college student and energetic pianist, will entertain guests as they arrive, and also will play during the program.
Allison Benoit will be joined by her mother, Nadine Benoit, for a special mother–daughter duet. The performers will also be joined by Angela Rose Masi. Angela Rose Masi is a New Jersey-based actress and a private voice teacher in Basking Ridge. Favorite roles include Eve (Children of Eden), Kate/Lucy(Avenue Q), and Schwarzy (25th…Spelling Bee).
