Next Stage Arts Project presents Alisa Amador and Seth Glier

Next Stage Arts Project presents Alisa Amador and Seth Glier

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present a socially-distanced lawn concert by contemporary folk singer/songwriters Alisa Amador and Seth Glier on Friday, August 7 at 6:30 pm at Cooper Field in Putney, VT. Bring lawn chairs or blankets for outdoor seating in distanced pods on the ballfield, and face masks to wear whenever you leave your pod. Rain date for the concert is Saturday, August 8.

Alisa Amador’s music is a synthesis of the many styles that she’s voraciously absorbed: rock, jazz and alternative folk, all wrapped in the spirit of the Latin sounds she grew up with. With her soulful singing, poetically incisive lyrics and syncopated rhythms, her music is likely to make audiences cry, laugh and dance all within one set.

It was in green rooms, living room rehearsals and cramped mini vans that Alisa received her first musical education, singing backup vocals since the age of five for her parents’ Latin band Sol y Canto. Years of jazz study, solo performance and training in vocal harmony and improvisation all while pursuing a degree in gender studies at Bates College in central Maine followed. Then, Alisa returned from a life changing trip to Argentina with a renewed belief in the power of music to break down social, political and emotional barriers, and create a space where everyone belongs.

"Alisa Amador is a pitch-perfect rendition of my wildest dreams" - Cyrena Touros, NPR All Songs Considered

Singer, songwriter, pianist, guitarist, producer and Grammy nominee Seth Glier is renowned for his fearless vocal delivery, musical exuberance and seasoned songwriting beyond his years. His critically acclaimed, emotionally dense catalog of work often draws upon traditional roots music, experimental instrumentation and moody atmospheres that result in soulfully intelligent stories that can alternatively fight the power or break your heart.

A troubadour in every sense of the word averaging over 150 live performances annually, Seth has released two new songs in 2020 as he builds to a full length album in early 2021and continues to connect with audiences (virtually) using his eclectic, often humorous, and always insightful artistry. With five albums, five Independent Music Award and even a U.S. State Department-sponsored international tour under his belt, Seth has played with a diverse list of artists such as Ani DiFranco, Martin Sexton, James Taylor, Ronnie Spector and Marc Cohn.

“Folk lyrics with a pop feel, philosophical musings with a backbeat and grown-up love songs delivered in Glier’s youthful tenor” - Elmore Magazine

Cooper Field is located on Sand Hill Road in Putney, VT. Tickets are $20 (Infield) and $15 (Outfield) Advance / $20 At the Door, and kids 12 and under are free. Advance tickets are available online at nextstagearts.org. The concert is sponsored in part by the Putney Community Center, Rolling Home and Greenberg Associates Architects, with special thanks to Patrick Noyes. For more information, visit nextstagearts.org or call 802-387-0102.

‘Zoom Into Jazz’- Virtual Summer Workshop 2020

‘Zoom Into Jazz’- Virtual Summer Workshop 2020

‘Zoom Into Jazz’- Virtual Summer Workshop 2020

The Vermont Jazz Center celebrates its 45th season by offering an online version of its annual Summer Jazz Workshop from August 9-14, 2020.

In the spirit of moving forward, the VJC has developed a structure to share the love of jazz and the wisdom of the faculty as a temporary replacement for its traditional summer jazz workshop in Putney, Vermont.

This year’s program features an expanded faculty, a new take on masterclasses, plus two new features: “Hot Topics” and “Zoom Tunes,” as well as a composition course led by Helen Sung as part of our theory curriculum.
 
Called “Zoom Into Jazz,” 2020s workshop welcomes a handful of new masterclass instructors on bass (Linda Mayhan Oh, Genevieve Rose, David Picchi), drums (Clarence Penn, Corey Fonville), piano (Shamie Royston, Maya Keren, Miro Sprague), trumpet (Rachel Therrien, Ray Vega) and saxophone (Felipe Salas) to complement VJC’s stellar faculty, which includes:

Sheila Jordan, Jay Clayton (voice), Jason Palmer (trumpet), Felipe Salas (saxophone), John Fedchock, Jen Wharton (trombone) Camille Thurman (flute and voice), Freddie Bryant (guitar), Ray Gallon, Helen Sung (piano), Cameron Brown, Marcus McLaurine (bass), Brian Shankar Adler, Claire Arenius, Francisco Mela (drums).

The masterclasses will focus on a different, daily topics - transcribing, comping, improvising, electric or acoustic instruments, note sets, etc. Each teacher will define the parameters of their own offerings.
 
Hot Topics” in the evening will be conversations between two faculty members on topics that resonate with our times such as “Gender and Race in Jazz,” “Bird (Charlie Parker) at 100,” and “The Influence of Jazz on Other Cultures (and Visa Versa).”

Each evening there also will be an opportunity to play a specified tune for other participants via Zoom and receive commentary.
 
The structure of the overall program is divided into a two-hour morning and a three-hour evening session with afternoons available for private lessons (for an additional fee) and vocal repertoire sessions.
 
  The Jazz Center is excited to join together once again. Even if we can’t see each other in person, we are delighted to connect with you, our summer jazz family!

Tuition is $475, Due by July 21st – includes $100 registration fee
(If you need to pay in two installments, please contact ginger@vtjazz.org)

"I AM..." 2021: A Statewide Exhibition Coming to Southern Vermont!

"I AM..." 2021:  A Statewide Exhibition Coming to Southern Vermont!

This event was originally scheduled for spring 2020 and has been postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 emergency.

MORE ABOUT "I AM..."
*More details of events associated with the opening along with a list of artists will be updated on the "I AM..." Exhibition FB Event page.


"I AM . . ." originally debuted at the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, is coming to Southern Vermont in May 2021! The exhibition, to be held at 118 Elliot and C. X. Silver Gallery—both located in Brattleboro—will encompass artists from around the state featuring two-dimensional and multi-media works from artists across a diverse range.

This exhibition’s appearance in Southern Vermont is ideal given an enduring legacy of inspiration, creativity, and artistic culture here. Home to Lucy Terry Prince, a freed, landowning poet and orator who was America’s first known African American poet; leading 19th Century painter William Morris Hunt; home of Storyteller and poet—Daisy Turner—born and raised within the Southern Vermont region. Turner, the daughter of Alexander Turner who escaped from slavery and joined the Union Army.

The list of names is endless, especially in other parts of Vermont. How does this legacy of creativity and inspiration connect to what it means to be a Vermont artist today? Nationally there has been discourse matched with action to disrupt assumptions about who creates, who engages in the field of creativity. Within our own state, there is still work to be done to expand the definition of the Vermont artist. The Vermont Arts Council has entered the dialogue through its I Am A Vermont Artist e-series of interviews. The series, started in January 2019, highlights artists whose creative expressions expand our thinking and reflect their experiences of ethnicity, gender identity, religion, disability, or age.

This unique and special exhibition is not to be missed and is being planned in partnership with the Vermont Arts Council, 118 Elliot, C.X. Silver Gallery, and artist, writer, photographer, Shanta Lee Gander (as curator).
