You'll hear more than birds singing in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, this spring, when a much anticipated performing-arts center by Frank Gehry opens at Bard College. The 108,000- square-foot Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts will provide rehearsal and concert space for Bard's highly regarded theater, dance, and music programs. There's also a 900-seat hall—where the inaugural performance of Gustav Mahler's Third Symphony is taking place—and a more intimate, 300-seat black-box theater. The building's overlapping canopies of brushed stainless steel recall Bilbao while mimicking the topography of the Hudson Valley. April 25; 845-758-7151; bard.edu.
