Chenango Sessions

The Chenango Sessions, hosted by Andru Bemis, is a weekly, nationally syndicated radio program which features world-class musicians playing in intimate spaces—living rooms, galleries, and listening rooms—for small, enthusiastic audiences, mostly around Binghamton, New York. Audiences and artists are encouraged to interact, and the spirit of the live show is preserved in the radio program and recordings.

Success! You're on the list.

Upcoming live sessions

Due to the intimate nature of the venues, not all Chenango Sessions are open to the public. If no address is listed on the event page, it may be private. But don’t let that stop you! To attend a private session, you could subscribe to our periodic email newsletter, check with the performer, or get details from an acquaintance, family member, or other guest. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Andru.

Chenango Sessions airs in Binghamton every Monday and Friday at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on WBDY-LP 99.5 FM “The Bundy” during the Audio Classics Local Music Hour.
