A cultural hub in the area, Bard College hosts several outstanding performing-arts festivals. The mix of events during Bard SummerScape, which runs from mid-July to mid-August, might blend orchestral and choral concerts, operas, dance performances, puppetry and other theater presentations, films, and panel discussions. The annual Bard Music Festival is devoted to a single composer deemed worthy of a new look and is held over two consecutive weekends in August.
