This weekend, I was here at Saint-Gaudens again for the last of the summer concerts. These Sunday afternoon concerts have been fabulous, and they are free to visitors, along with the cost of admission! Moonlight Over Vermont was the title of this jazz concert: a first for Saint-Gaudens, as the series usually feature chamber music by some well-known duos, trios, quartets, or even quintets. If this national historic site can add jazz to its annual repertoire, I think it will attract even more visitors. Certainly, the place swung on Sunday.
I won't repeat all of the superlatives for Saint-Gaudens by other reviewers, but, suffice to say, the setting and the views of Mount Ascutney from here are just stunning. I never tire of the place or of these views, whether from the terrace of the house or from the terrace of the main studio. What not is there to love? The charming historic house (a former inn), the studios, the sculpture, the outhouses (with a small collection of carriages), the gardens, the grounds (with an avenue of birches), and the atmosphere of a by-gone era. You cannot be bored!
