‘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)

Sandglass Theater Archive Video on Demand

Sandglass Theater Archive Video on Demand

From the Sandglass Archives

Sandglass Theater has created twenty-five productions since our founding in 1982. Most of these have been video recorded for archival purposes, which means they are for our own documentation, marketing, and press outreach. Some of these recordings are better than others, although none of them is recorded with the intention of conveying the full experience of a live performance. These recordings offer a window into our past for those who want to learn more about our history and how our work has developed over these decades. The videos we have selected offer insight into where we have been and where we are going.

Richard 3.5: Light Ruminations on Murder
A collaboration between Bob Berky and Sandglass Theater. Live from the 15th century, King Richard III is here to perform, for your enjoyment, 11 murders and 7 songs that Shakespeare never meant to write. Surrounded by larger-than-life candles, whose wax is used to create the puppet victims before your eyes, Richard and his emcee accomplice dance and sing their way through this epic tragedy.

Isidor’s Cheek, Family Audiences
So begins the song, which begins the story, which begins the adventure: One day, something drives Isidor from his little grey existence. His cheek runs away and Isidor must search around the world to find it again: a world of color and beauty as well as loneliness and even danger. Inspired by a German children’s book.

Southern Vermont Arts Center Clay Sculpture Workshop

Southern Vermont Arts Center Clay Sculpture Workshop

In this three-day workshop, students will work from a live model to create figure and portrait sculptures, using water-based clay. Using demonstrations and personalized assistance, George emphasizes proportion, gesture and anatomy as a basis for artistically expressive sculpture.

Instructor: George Paxton
Cost: SVAC Member: $295; Non-Member: $330 ($25 additional materials fee)
Ages 14 (with parent/guardian permission) – Adult

Artist Statement:
I work from nature with a live model to create classically-inspired, representational, figurative sculpture in terra cotta and cast in bronze. I believe that the creative process must be grounded in the basics. A good understanding of proportion, gesture, and anatomy is essential. But, as a perfect depiction of a figure can best be captured by a photograph, an accurate representation of nature serves only as a starting place from which artistic expression and creativity spring. With an understanding of proportion and anatomy, an artist can select out certain features and forms, accentuating them while minimizing others, and create sculpture that is not only true to nature, but which also expresses the artist’s views and captures the essence, mood and feeling of the subject.

Southern Vermont Arts Center Clay Sculpture Workshop

Southern Vermont Arts Center Clay Sculpture Workshop

In this three-day workshop, students will work from a live model to create figure and portrait sculptures, using water-based clay. Using demonstrations and personalized assistance, George emphasizes proportion, gesture and anatomy as a basis for artistically expressive sculpture.

Instructor: George Paxton
Cost: SVAC Member: $295; Non-Member: $330 ($25 additional materials fee)
Ages 14 (with parent/guardian permission) – Adult

Artist Statement:
I work from nature with a live model to create classically-inspired, representational, figurative sculpture in terra cotta and cast in bronze. I believe that the creative process must be grounded in the basics. A good understanding of proportion, gesture, and anatomy is essential. But, as a perfect depiction of a figure can best be captured by a photograph, an accurate representation of nature serves only as a starting place from which artistic expression and creativity spring. With an understanding of proportion and anatomy, an artist can select out certain features and forms, accentuating them while minimizing others, and create sculpture that is not only true to nature, but which also expresses the artist’s views and captures the essence, mood and feeling of the subject.
