String Band

String Band

String Band with Jill Newton
Wednesdays, September 4 through November 27 (13 weeks)
5:00 - 6:15pm
Cost: $130 (drop-ins welcome $12)

String Band is looking for new members!
Come and enjoy Main Street Arts longest running educational class! Play your instrument in a group setting and practice traditional square dance and fiddle tunes from around the world. All string instruments are welcome.

Jill’s Bio
If there’s something happening at Main Street Arts, which is usually the case, Jill Newton most likely has a hand in it. As a musician, artist, and instructor, not to mention a board member for many years, she’s been an important presence at MSA since its inception, and her contributions over the years have taken a variety of forms. Anything involving music probably includes Jill, whether it’s accompanying songs for the Winter Holiday program or playing for the cabarets and other musical productions. Her fiddling, both as a solo player and in an ensemble, gives a harmonious lift to every performance. Another musical group that depends on Jill is the Main Street Arts String Band. Jill started this offering in the mid-1990’s, making it the longest continually running class in Main Street Arts’ history. It meets throughout the year and is comprised of seasoned musicians, beginners, and everything in between. Currently there are twelve registered members who make up the band, (frequently joined by past members), playing a wide variety of string instruments (violin, cello, guitar, banjo, harp), along with accordion, keyboards, recorder, and pennywhistle. The group rehearses for 1 ½ hours each Wednesday and plays tunes that range from traditional to contemporary and waltzes to reels. Jill provides most of the music, choosing selections that are accessible but still beautiful, while at the same time keeping the group focused and in tune. She also guides less-experienced musicians through difficult passages. Most of all, however, Jill creates a joyful atmosphere and makes sure everyone is having fun. The String Band has built up quite a repertoire over the years and has taken their music to other venues besides MSA. For many years they’ve performed in the Saxtons River Fourth of July parade and on the bandstand, at Main St. Arts annual picnics, and outside fundraisers for MSA. The String Band is always looking to expand its membership and encourages musicians of all levels to join their ranks.

Breathe the Wind: Kate Emlen Paintings

Breathe the Wind: Kate Emlen Paintings

Wind swept skies and rocky shores, light dappled woods and shimmering water – Kate Emlen’s paintings explore the power and mystery of the natural world. Imagery shifts between disintegration and integration through the use of light and shadow, color and form. Emlen’s small gouaches on paper and large oil paintings on panel and linen are included in the exhibition.

The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music

November 20, 2019 – January 5, 2020

Based on the true story of the Von Trapp Family Singers, this play offers a tale of personal growth and hope amidst the horrors of World War II. Young postulant Maria Rainer is a free spirit who has trouble fitting into the rules and regulations of Nonnberg Abbey. Commissioned by the Mother Abbess to serve as the governess for seven motherless children, Maria transforms the Von Trapp family home from a place of dour rules and regulations to one filled with joy, laughter, and music. The classic score by Rodgers and Hammerstein features some of Broadway’s greatest songs such as “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”

Holiday Punch puppet show

Holiday Punch puppet show

Punch and Judy are almost ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. They’ve got the stuffing, the sweet potatoes, and the cranberry sauce. The only thing they are missing is the turkey. Audiences will split their sides laughing as Mr. Punch tries to catch the main dish, while avoiding crocodiles, his badly behaved baby and his dog Toby, (who looks suspiciously like a skunk). The skillfully operated hand puppets are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage. The show is rounded out with live music played on a variety of instruments, from the ukulele to the bicycle pump.

Modern Times Theater has been adapting and updating Punch and Judy shows for over a decade. Co-founders Rose Friedman and Justin Lander are a husband and wife duo, and alumni of the Bread and Puppet Theater. Parents themselves, they strive to present quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.

Space is limited to 70 seats in our theater. Advance purchase is strongly recommended!

Join us after the puppet show for a JUNK MUSIC & SOUND EXPERIMENTATION WORKSHOP. Space is limited. rtistreevt.org/holiday-punch-punch-and-judy-puppet-show.html

Malcolm Morley

Malcolm Morley

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.
