NEWS & VIEWS What’s Happening Around Town? The BridgeLine Receives Grant From The Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation

The Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation announced the recipients of the most recent grant cycle. The BridgeLine is honored to be a recipient in this cycle. These funds will go to our Art Therapy Program for adults with brain injuries. About The Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band: The Bama Works Fund is administered by the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation. Established in 1999, the Bama Works Fund supports charitable programs primarily in the Charlottesville, Virginia area but has also responded to a wide variety of needs both nationally and internationally. The fund has raised over $40 million and has made over 1,200 grants since its inception. About The BridgeLine: It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere: an out-of-control car, a slippery sidewalk, an accident in the playing field. It takes but an instant for a person’s whole world to be turned inside out by a brain injury. The BridgeLine, a local non-profit organization, provides services for people with brain injuries through residential and day services. The approach is to support individuals and their immediate families by enriching their lives and fostering independence emphasizing community integration and personal fulfillment.

Make It a Weekend! Charlottesville’s 2018 Artisans Studio Tour: You’ll Want Both Days New studios and more artisans provide increased opportunities for guests

to participate in an annual experience that brings them into the homes and workspaces of Virginia creators. The 24th annual Artisans Studio Tour grows to 49 artisans in 28 studios in Charlottesville and surrounding counties over the weekend of November 10-11, 2018. Central Virginia’s fall foliage provides a stunning backdrop to this free driving tour of the studios of returning favorites and new artists. “With so much to enjoy, why not make a weekend of it?” suggests Tour Director Nancy Ross with a smile. “Check out the northern cluster of studios, then after lunch in town, spend an afternoon visiting the eight studios in Charlottesville. After a casual evening dining in one of the more than 100 area independent restaurants, cafes, bistros, grills or pubs, wake early on Sunday to catch the rest of the amazing studios in the southern and western areas of the Tour,” adds Ross. Some special accommodation ideas may be found on the tour website, and organizers suggest booking in advance. This year’s Tour brings six new artisans from around the state representing a variety of craft. Christina Boy of Madison will open her woodworking studio where the rural landscape inspires her blend of modern and rustic furniture. Jill Jensen and Cathy Vaughn join returning woodworker Todd Leback in his Charlottesville studio. From Lynchburg, Jensen creates fiber art combining printmaking techniques and painting. Coming from Richmond, Vaughn transforms the surface of the copper she uses to create bowls, sculptures, and candelabras. Potter Shari Jacobs of Woodberry Forest shows her functional pottery in the studio of jeweler, Anne R. Hanson. The final new artisans are in Charlottesville. Lee Marraccini, familiar to many as the jeweler who owns Angelos jewelry store, will open his personal studio for a glimpse of his jewelry-making process. Marraccini creates contemporary designs with semi-precious stones, gemstones, conflict-free diamonds, and recycled gold. Corry Blanc of Blanc Creatives demonstrates how traditional blacksmithing techniques are employed to craft modern cookware in his downtown Charlottesville location.

While most artisans you will see are in the prime of their careers, the emerging artisan program in its third year welcomes Jessie Rublee, a potter who is mentored by Ross and will show with her in Blaise Gaston’s home/studio. Rublee’s porcelain pieces draw inspiration from delicate lines and structures observed in nature including roots, tree branches, feathers, seed pods, and various species of mushroom. There will be artisan demonstrations and opportunities to learn about the working processes throughout the Studio Tour. The Tour provides an excellent opportunity to purchase the work of talented professional artisans as unique gifts or for your own collection. The studios and craftsmen are varied, but their commitment to fine craftsmanship is a constant throughout the tour. Directions and a map can be found on the studio tour website. You are invited to tour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on November 10 and 11, 2018 For more information about the Artisans Studio Tour and links to individual artisan websites, visit online at www.artisanstudiotour.com, like the Tour on Facebook at facebook.com/ artisans.studio.tour, or contact Nancy Ross at director@artisanstudiotour. com or 434-973-6846.

Small City,

t’s a lotta music for a little city, but then the Staunton Music Festival is no local secret or merely local affair. With a hashtag #RethinkClassical and everything from a period-instrument performance of Handel’s rarely-heard operatic masterpiece Hercules to a concert performance of Kurt Weill’s “sung ballet” The Seven Deadly Sins, this year’s 21st annual festival—over 30 concerts taking place from August 10-19—will attract the usual impressive array of adventurous musicians from across Europe and North

America and music lovers from across the country. Free hour-long noontime concerts on most days will be followed by longer evening performances. Youth aged 18 and under can attend most concerts for free. Aren’t the locals lucky? Aren’t we all. The much anticipated yearly Festival sprung from two weekend concerts organized in 1998 by its pianist, harpsichordist, conductor, and festival artistic director Carsten Schmidt. More than 70 musicians take part each year, including members of the New York Philharmonic, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and Metropolitan Opera.

A core group of about 40 players returns annually, attracted by imaginative programming and informed and attentive audiences. A typical program might include a Baroque, Renaissance, or Medieval work played on period instruments, plus Classical, Romantic, modern and contemporary pieces. “The wonderful Staunton Music Festival this summer,” writes contralto Sara Couden, a Festival favorite, “is the only place I’ve ever been where you show up for the virtuosic period trumpet rendering of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto, and stay for the percussionists beautifully playing cacti in Cage’s Child of Tree.”

“The city itself is such a verdant, beautiful spot,” says Richmond-born composer Zachary Wadsworth, another Festival mainstay. “But the people of Staunton make the festival what it is. Audiences come to concerts in droves with open ears, eager to hear not only the most incredible works of the past, but also brand new music. I’ve never been to a festival with such a dedicated and engaged audience culture.”

Hercules Most works performed at SMF fall under the heading of chamber music, but a few employ larger ensembles. One such composition opens the Festival at

“Eine kleine Nachtmusik” (1787). The theater fave “Send in the Clowns” was written for the 1973 musical A Little Night Music, Stephen Sondheim’s adaptation of the 1955 film Smiles of a Summer Night by Ingmar Bergman, whose centennial is being celebrated this year. Chester Biscardi’s “Witch Dance” (1983) is scored for two percussionists. Benjamin Britten’s Nocturne (1958) is a song cycle for a tenor (Derek Chester here) and a seven-member chamber orchestra. The centerpiece of the program is Arnold Schoenberg’s epochal Pierrot

Serenades

Lunaire (1912), sung by soprano Megan Chartrand and pantomimed by the Happenstance Theater’s Gwen Grastorf, whom audiences will remember as the hilarious narrator of “The Last Contrabass in Las Vegas” in 2017. Happenstance Artistic Co-Director Mark Jaster choreographed the piece, working with the original French poems and several English translations of the German text. “I came to think of the piece as a kind of active historical bridge,” Jaster says, “taking the old Romantic character of Pierrot into a ‘Modern’ idiom and world. The Pierrot of the 19th-Century star Jean-Gaspard Debureau was a flexible many-faceted character, capable of violence as well as heart-break. “The Schoenberg/Giraud/Hartleben exploration takes this to extremes, portraying stark and fractured images while cleaving close to the moonstruck roots of the original, and ultimately, I believe, showing the resilience and enduring truth of the archetype. The visual images in the choreography highlight those in text/lyric, and seek to reflect the moody leaps of the music. The song cycle is divided into three sets of seven pieces each.

Eric Guinivan’s imaginatively scored “Cradle Song” for soprano, piano, and vibraphone (2005), won the 2009 ASCAP/Lotte Lehmann Art Song Competition. Baritone Paul Max Tipton and pianist Heini Karkkainen (an American and a Finn) perform Maurice Ravel’s song cycle Don Quichotte à Dulcinée (1932-33).

The power of rhythm across centuries is the theme of I’ve Got Rhythm (1930), also on August 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal. The program opens with Wadsworth’s arrangement of “I’ve Got Rhythm” and closes with Gershwin’s variations on the song for piano and orchestra (1933-34), dedicated to his brother Ira, the song’s original lyricist. Bela Bartok’s Sonata for two pianos and percussion (1937) pushed rhythm to new heights and is one of the Hungarian composer’s most frequently performed works; the work’s two pianists and two percussionists play seven instruments—timpani, bass drum, cymbals, triangle, snare drum, gong and xylophone. Frank’s Danzas de los Saqsampillos (2006), Johann Strauss’s “Banditen-Galop” (1877) arranged by veteran Festival violist Vladimir Mendelssohn, medieval French composer Guillaume de Machaut “Motet’s Ad te suspiramus” and TerVeltdhuis’s “able to be” round out the program.

Composer-in-residence Gabriela Lena Frank’s music has been commissioned by numerous leading musical groups including Kronos Quartet, Yo Yo Ma and the Silk Road Project, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and all major U.S. orchestras. The Washington Post called her one of the 35 most significant women composers in history. Born to a father of Lithuanian Jewish heritage and a Peruvian mother of Chinese descent, Frank writes music for classical ensembles that reflects her ethnic heritage and often evokes the sound of the Peruvian pan flute, the charango guitar, and other Latin American instruments. “My sense of self has developed inexorably along the simple principle of storytelling and creating objects of beauty through sound, leaving the earth hopefully a bit better,” Frank writes. “As this self-awareness has continued to grow in force and ease, sharing my experiences with my emerging colleagues as well as new, even untra-

ditional, audiences has become both more joyous and urgent.” Frank will discuss her work and perform excerpts from her choral and piano music on Monday, August 13 at 3:00 p.m. at First Presbyterian.

Few beginnings are more auspicious, or more provocative, than the “Prelude” to Richard Wagner’s op-

era Tristan und Isolde, which famously makes listeners wait four hours—till its conclusion—for the musical resolution of its opening measures. A chamber en-

tke’s witty and surprising violin duo, “Moz-Art.” Mozart’s Canons for four voices opens the program, which begins at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 19 in Blackfriars Playhouse. His String Quintet in G Minor, K. 516, scored for two violins, two violas and cello closes it. Schnittke’s “Moz-Art” (1976/77) is based on an unfinished work—actually a fragment of the first violin part—by the Austrian master. The title means “sort of” in German, an allusion to the fact that the amount of source material is slight, and much has been made of relatively little. The Festival concludes at 4:00 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal with two of Mozart’s greatest works, his final symphonic composition, Symphony No. 41 in C, K. 551, Jupiter (1877), and his Requiem in D Minor, K. 626, left unfinished at his death in 1791. From traditional favorites played in period style to cutting edge creations receiving their first performances, Staunton Music Festival pursues its stated goal of rethinking classical for the modern era. And when the music stops, the streets of a cultured city beckon. Festival attendance surpassed 8,000 in 2017, with attendees coming from 24 states and 3 foreign countries. Is it any wonder? n

semble arrangement of the “Prelude” will begin the Auspicious Beginnings program, Wednesday, August 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal. The composer and bandoneon player Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) fused his native Argentinian tango with elements of jazz and classical music to pioneer what became known as nuevo tango. He wrote the first (summer) portion of his celebrated composition The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires overnight, having forgotten it was to be recorded the next day. The Winter and Spring sections (1969-70), parts of which allude to Antonin Vivaldi’s popular The Four Seasons, will be heard here in an arrangement for piano trio. Also on the program are Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina’s “Kyrie,” from Missa Papae Marcelli (1567), Guilio Caccini’s “Dolcissimo Sospiro” (1601), for soprano and continuo, Charles Ives’ “The Unanswered Question” (1908), Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 in C, Op. 21 (1801), and an excerpt from Gabriela Lena Frank’s Milagros, for string quartet (2010).

Lively Cultural Life BY KEN WILSON

THERE IS PEACE IN THE VALLEY

Saddles, Rails and Running Boards You can see the countryside from the backseat of a car, but you can feel it from backside of a horse. The folks at Staunton’s Star B Stables provide the more immersive experience with hourlong guided horse trail rides. Stable

guides provide any needed assistance; prior riding experience is unnecessary. Over at the free Augusta County Railroad Museum in the Staunton Mall the focus is on railroad history and railroad miniatures. In addition to its collection of operating model train layouts, the Museum shows a large selection of railroad art depicting railroad scenes and steam, diesel, and electric locomotives, many of which no longer exist. Shelves display antique model trains that have become collector’s items, and artifacts like lanterns and railroad signs. At the Bruce A. Elder Antique and Classic Automobile Museum situated in downtown Staunton’s Beverley Garage Building (built in 1911 as “The Finest Garage In The South”), the attraction is more than just Bruce’s jaw-dropping collection of historic vehicles—it’s hearing Bruce tell stories about them. His frequently changing collection of rare and exciting vehicles spans nearly 100 years, from the nation’s earliest to classic Detroit “muscle cars.” The museum is open on Fridays and Saturdays for tours at 10:30 a.m., and 1:30, 3:00 and 5:00 p.m.; tickets are $5 for persons 16 and over. Children accompanied by adults get in free.

Gypsy Hill Park Everyone loves a city green space. Staunton’s Gypsy Hill Park has a 1.3mile circular roadway called Constitution Drive running through its center, designated as a “play street suitable for

walking, jogging, cycling and rollerblading.” With 214 acres, the park has room for plenty more: a gymnasium, football field, skate park, golf course, community pool, garden center, duck pond, dog park and recycling center. Also playgrounds, picnic shelters with grills and picnic tables, baseball fields, basketball courts, running tracks, soccer fields, tennis courts, volleyball courts, horseshoes, and historical monuments. A 2.5 acre storm water retention pond is stocked with trout and is the site of two big annual fishing derbies (boating is not permitted). Kids and their grownups can ride around a particularly scenic part of the park on the

Waynesboro The painter P. Buckley Moss fell in love with the life and culture of the Amish and Mennonite people of the Shenandoah Valley over 50 years ago, seeing there “an important message for modern society: live simply and enjoy every moment.” The idea has inspired her wildly popular and award-winning art. Moss declines to paint “the dark side of contemporary existence. My art states in a forthright manner the ancient proposition of the triumph of beauty and truth over injustice.” The P. Buckley Moss Gallery in downtown Waynesboro, only a 10-minute drive from her Barn studio, offers an extensive collection of her paintings, ornaments and other collectibles for sale. Moss signs her work at the Barn on weekends. Experienced and aspiring artists find classes, exhibition opportunities and fellowship at the nearby Shenandoah Valley Art Center. Vaudeville and silent movies were the bill of fare when Waynesboro’s Wayne Theater opened in 1926. Enlarged to double capacity in 1949, the Wayne burned in 1980, after which it was divided into two separate theaters. In 2000 plans were laid to restore the handsome theater and its neo-classical facade to their former glory. Valley residents and Prairie Home Companion veterans Robin and Linda Williams were the first to play it when it reopened in 2016. Today the Wayne is the local spot for a summer musical theatre camp, classic movies, benefits and live performances and lectures. An exhibition gallery within the theater currently features an Augusta County Historical Society exhibit on Augusta County and World War l. n

COMMUNITY

if that’s what you want—and plenty to keep you occupied when you don’t. Just “over the mountain” from Albemarle County is the storied Shenandoah Valley with all that lush countryside, and all those country places. Once so richly farmed it was dubbed “the breadbasket of the Confederacy,” Augusta County today holds three treasured slices of Mother Nature: portions of Shenandoah National Park, George Washington National Forest, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. But the manmade part is something too. The little independent city of Staunton is known for its lively cultural life and the charm of its architecture, and the still smaller burg of Waynesboro has its own quaintly picturesque downtown and a growing bedroom-community-no-more reputation. Want an evening of jazz in the park? Head to the Valley. Admire the paintings of P. Buckley Moss? Take your pick in the Valley. Looking not just to visit, but for more affordable housing and to stay put? You’ve found the right valley, alright. Music and theater, collector’s item art and railroad history—it’s all here and you’re just getting started.

THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY’S

Gypsy Express mini train (Saturdays and Sundays, May through October, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., $1 per ride). On summer evenings, people gather around an old-fashioned bandstand for entertainment. The Stonewall Brigade Band, playing Sundays, is the oldest continuous community band in the country, dating to 1855. Initially a brass band, it’s now a full concert band with 70 or more musicians each night. Mondays are devoted to Gospel— Southern, bluegrass, and contemporary. Tuesdays are for “old-time country music”—classic bluegrass. Wednesdays brings jazz—Big Band, Latin, Prohibition era, organ trio and blues. Friday night is for movies, some kid-friendly, some for more mature audiences. In season the park is patrolled by the Staunton police.
