Sage City Symphony to perform spring concert May 19

Sage City Symphony to perform spring concert May 19
Description:

On Sunday, May 19, at 4 p.m., Sage City Symphony will present a free spring concert at Greenwall Auditorium in the VAPA Building at Bennington College, sponsored by People’s Bank. The program is built around the world premiere of “E,” a composition for jazz combo and orchestra by local-boy-made-good Leo Yucht, an up-and-coming jazz percussionist and composer now based out of NYC. This work was commissioned by Sage City Symphony as part of its mission to support new composers.

A graduate of Mount Anthony Union High School in Bennington, VT (ʼ13), and William Paterson University (ʼ17), Yucht has performed with some of the most acclaimed musicians in the world, including Jon Batiste, Aaron Goldberg, Harold Mabern, Pete Malinverni, and many more. He performs regularly in the New York metropolitan area with his band and also as a sideman with other world-renowned jazz artists. Yucht’s jazz quartet for the Sunday concert and the Saturday Community Jazz Brunch includes Bob Bruya on bass, Thomas Linger on keyboard, and Daniel Berkey on tenor saxophone.

Yucht’s composition, simply titled “E,” is dedicated to his wife, Ekin. “The piece is my tribute to her,” Yucht says. “She is a special person and I feel lucky that I get to write it for her.” He adapted his original melody for Sage City Symphony’s strings, a few wind instruments, and glockenspiel, which will accompany his four-piece jazz quartet. In describing his process, Yucht says, “Musically, I drew inspiration from many historical recordings of a similar nature; for example, Charlie Parker’s ‘Bird with Strings,’ ‘Clifford Brown with Strings,’ Wayne Shorter’s ‘Without a Net.’ I feel that the piece is dynamic. It is not simply ‘this’ or ‘that’; rather, it embodies a spectrum of moods and sounds.”

Also on the program is Symphony No. 7 in D minor by Antonín Dvořák, and “Fanfare,” a rousing brass piece written to precede the ballet “La Péri,” by Paul Dukas. (Dukas is perhaps best remembered for his orchestral work “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” which was notably used in Disney’s 1940 animated film “Fantasia.”)

As an appetizer to this concert, Sage City Symphony will host a Community Jazz Brunch on Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Park-McCullough House Carriage Barn in North Bennington featuring live music by the Leo Yucht Jazz Combo. The menu will include a variety of brunch favorites, including quiches, smoked salmon, fruits, and pastries. Tickets for the brunch are $20 for adults, $10 for students, and free for kids ages 12 and under. Proceeds will benefit the Village School in North Bennington and the Kitchen Cupboard food pantry in Bennington. This event is made possible by the Fund for North Bennington and the Board of Sage City Symphony.

Sage City Symphony (www.sagecitysymphony.org) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, registered in the State of Vermont, and relies entirely on generous donations, grants, and volunteer services from individuals, local foundations, businesses, and sponsors. Concerts are always free and open to all.

Heliand Consort at the Plainfield Opera House

Heliand Consort at the Plainfield Opera House
Description:

Kindred Spirits - Letters and music of Brahms and the Schumanns

The Heliand Consort explores the complex triangle that brought together three of the greatest musical minds of the Romantic Era. Through letters and music of Brahms and the Schumanns, Heliand offers a glimpse into their tragic and beautiful story of love, friendship and art. The program includes Robert Schumann’s Romances for oboe and piano, Brahms Sonata for piano and clarinet, and the music of Clara Schumann.

The program will feature musicians Katie Oprea on oboe, Cynthia Huard on piano, and Elisabeth LeBlanc on clarinet. Selected letters will be read by guest storytellers Jim Stapleton, Diana Bigelow, and Patrick Evans. The letters elucidate Clara and Robert Schumann’s marriage, how they expressed their love with musical gifts, and how Robert’s deteriorating mental health affected their professional and private lives. Johannes Brahms arrived seeking a mentor in composition and fell into one of the most intriguing love triangles in music history.

Do you have a love letter from an old flame tucked away in a dusty drawer? Bring it to one of these concerts (or e-mail it in advance), and we’ll give a dramatic anonymous reading of selected love letters from the audience, as well.

The Heliand Consort is a virtuoso woodwind & piano chamber music ensemble that performs engaging classical music from the baroque through 20th century and contemporary repertoire. Recognized for its dynamic and creative programming, Heliand Consort is also distinguished by its commitment to audience engagement.

Jarlath Henderson Trio with Piper's Den

Jarlath Henderson Trio with Piper's Den
Description:

Catamount Arts Presents the Jarlath Henderson Trio. Sponsored by United Community Church, St. Johnsbury, VT. Powerful, "otherwordly" music matched with this transcendent venue promises to be an intense experience.

BBC Young Folk Musician award winner

Jarlath Henderson is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and doctor. Jarlath Henderson is a wildly inventive multi-instrumentalist and masterful balladeer from Northern Ireland who is best known as a remarkable player of uilleann pipes and whistles. A three-time All-­­Ireland Champion piper, Henderson revives traditional songs, such as murder and love ballads, with a somber intensity through his sublime original arrangements (“new and otherworldly”—NPR Music).

“The youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Folk Award, back in 2003, Tyrone-born multi-instrumentalist and singer Jarlath Henderson has since won further acclaim in his firebrand partnership with Scottish piper and whistle player Ross Ainslie. After rapturous reviews for their debut album *Partners in Crime*, released in 2008, and 2013’s follow-up *Air-Fix*, the duo is now expandable into a thrilling six-piece band. Renowned primarily for his extraordinary prowess on uilleann pipes and whistles, while fast emerging as an equally gifted vocalist, Henderson has performed and recorded in such illustrious company as The Transatlantic Sessions, Jack Bruce, Lau, Capercaillie, Paddy Keenan, Salsa Celtica, Phil Cunningham, and Michael McGoldrick. His hotly-anticipated solo debut, *Hearts Broken, Heads Turned*, launched at Celtic Connections 2016, comprises bold yet sensitive arrangements of traditional songs, also featuring Henderson on guitar and cittern, together with his hand-picked accompanying line-up of Hamish Napier (keyboards, flute), Innes Watson (fiddle, guitar) and Duncan Lyall (double bass).”

Piper's Den
A band that bridges the gaps between traditional and contemporary, Scottish and world music. Hazen Metro, Dan Houghton and Tristan Henderson are a midnight-meeting of three composers and multi-instrumentalists, playing reeds, strings and more. Unleashing beguiling compositions and arrangements, from simple and complex, onto the world’s stage.

Dorset Players Present OKLAHOMA!

Dorset Players Present OKLAHOMA!
Description:

The Dorset Players will bring down the curtain on their 91st anniversary season with Oklahoma!, considered one of the seminal musicals in Broadway history.  Performances will be at the Dorset Playhouse on May 17-18 and May 24-25 at 7:30 PM and on May 19 and 26 at 2 PM.

The first collaboration of legendary Lyricist Richard Rodgers and Librettist Oscar Hammerstein II, the show was a game-changer when it took Broadway by storm when it opened in 1943.  Memorable songs such as “Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say We’re In Love,” and “Oklahoma!, rather than just providing filler, advanced the story of a cowboy, Curly, who falls for a farm girl, Laurey, against the backdrop of prairie life in the Indian Territory, circa 1907.
Over the past four months, Director Suzi Dorgeloh, Musical Director Tom Salmon and Choreographer Kelly Gaiotti, have marshaled a talented cast of 23 from 17 area towns in Vermont and New York.  Newcomer Josh Bond takes the lead as Curly, while Danielle Houston who last appeared with The Players in the 2014 production of Miracle on 34th Street, is Laurey. Dana Haley, who wowed audiences in The Players’ production I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, sashays in as Ado Annie - the girl “who cain’t say no.”  Two actors fresh from leading roles in The Players’ Witness for the Prosecution, are Joe Mozer, as Will Parker, who does his utmost to romance Ado Annie and Drew Davidson who portrays the tortured Jud Fry, who pines for Laurey and cannot have her.  Aunt Eller is played by Caren McVicker, who is also new to the Dorset stage.
The balance of the cast is peppered with new and familiar faces to Dorset audiences, including Christy Vogel, Richard Grip, Chris Restino, Billy Jamieson, Dan Silver, Errol Hill, Bill Cruikshank, Michael Gallagher, Lily Gallagher, Zachary Barnett, Bob Fogelgren, Sara Gregory, Maeve Keeton, Laura King, Lily Butler, Ginny Edinger, and Annie Nash.

Tickets can be purchased on-line at www.dorsetplayers.org, in person, or by calling (802) 867-5777. Oklahoma! is proudly sponsored by Above All Vermont, The Barn Restaurant, Errol L. Hill Painting, La Peche Lingerie, RK Miles, Southern Vermont Medical Center, Bob & Martha Schoenemann, Spivey, Lemonik Swenor, PC, and The Wilburton Inn.

David Rohn: Watercolors

David Rohn: Watercolors
Description:

David Rohn was born in Chicago in 1934 and grew up in the small town of Ludington, along the shore of Lake Michigan. He graduated from the University of Michigan College of Architecture and Design and stepped into a creative life richly lived as cartoonist, puppeteer, printmaker, teacher and painter.

Running parallel to his explorations in abstract painting and printmaking, and during his tenure at Windham College in Putney, Vermont, in the mid-1960s and ’70s, David’s watercolor painting gave relief from the more formal demands and cultural mandates of artistic invention and novelty of non-figurative oil painting. The delicate washes and expansive passages of color represent liberation from an art world of expectation and judgement. His modest still-lifes are deceptively loose and easy, and we’re comforted by the associations we bring to his unassuming and familiar scenes.

In 1953, I was the kid who was good at drawing, actually one of three in eighth grade. I did airplanes. After hundreds of airplanes, then dozens of cartoons, I was introduced to looking at paintings. I began to learn about the language of visual art: not depiction, but the secret language—form, color, symmetry, rhythm. This felt fundamental.

I thought I might give it a go.

There are other secret languages in art, of course, including some I don’t quite grasp. Art, done well, Is a way of twanging the mind, and the mind is infinitely resonant. Who knows what’s coming next? For me it’s mainly the classical ideas of form/color/architecture, plus the paradox of 3-D on a 2-D surface that Cézanne calls attention to.

Working from observation offers an endless variety of visual situations, and has the bonus of requiring prolonged intimate contact with plain stuff—a jar, an apple. I begin by gathering in. I yield to it. Later, I play with what I have harvested, playing the dialogue between the parts.

Sometimes a dynamic equilibrium results—a perpetually self-charging energy source. That’s the goal.

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch
Description:

Catamount Arts is pleased to present Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch, an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper on view in the Fried Family Gallery from April 27-June 14, 2019. A wine and cheese reception will be held on Sunday, April 28 from 4-5:30 pm, with remarks by the artist at 5 pm. All are welcome to attend.

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch is an exhibition showcases the artist’s fascination with exploratory drawing as the basis for work that invokes a sense of touch. Using tape, fiber, fiberglass mesh, and hydrostone, she creates installations and stand-alone pieces that act both in collaboration and resistance to material. “All of my work is rooted in drawing,” Weisberg observes. It is her desire to establish sensory awareness of spatial relationships between the human body and material, one that is “dynamic, improvisational, and mutable.”

A native of Philadelphia, Debra Weisberg graduated from the Tyler School of Art and currently lives and works in the Boston area. Known both nationally and internationally for large installations and smaller works that explore drawing in physical terms, she has exhibited at the Paper Biennial in the Netherlands; the East Hampton Center for Contemporary Art in New York; and in numerous venues in the Boston area, including the Art Complex Museum, Boston Center for the Arts, Danforth Art, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Gallery Kayafas, Lesley University, and the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University.

In Their Element: Jonathan D. Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow

In Their Element: Jonathan D. Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow
Description:

Shelburne Museum is thrilled to present In Their Element: Jonathan D. Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow, an outdoor installation featuring the evocative work of three contemporary artists on view across the Museum’s expansive campus, from May 1 through October 31, 2019. These captivating sculptures complement and amplify one another through their shared engagement with fire, wind, and earth – subjects of fascination since antiquity. Exploring themes ranging from the anatomy of wildlife, the buoyancy of inflated steel forms, to the relationship between site-specific stone structures within the natural environment, Ebinger, Nava, and Snow push the boundaries of their respective materials and processes, revealing new experimentation with these classical elements.

Malcolm Morley

Malcolm Morley
Description:

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition by British-born American artist Malcolm Morley at its galleries in Reading, Vermont. Hailed internationally as a pioneering figure of his generation, Morley was a founder of Super-Realism, which developed as a counterpoint to Pop Art in the 1960s. He is also remembered as an artist who deliberately broke away from the stylistic innovations which brought him this initial fame. Over a career spanning sixty years, Morley’s practice continually evolved, his paintings becoming ever more colorful, expressive and distinctive. This exhibition includes approximately 40 paintings, sculptures and works on paper created between 1964 and 2016 from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. On view from 11 May through 1 December 2019. Appointments available 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sa–Su. $10 pp. First Friday of every month, 5–8 p.m., free without a guide.

Time: 5/11/19 11:00am - 12/1/19 4:00pm
Location: Hall Art Foundation, Reading
