THE LURE OF CHAUTAUQUA There’s nothing quite like the draw of water. I was meant for the summer months and what says summer to me is the beckoning of Chautauqua Lake, along with ice cream, flip flops and anything nautical. I’ve already visited in early May on my way to Ohio. The sign for Mayville and my realization of how close we were to that grand oasis made the car magically detour to that exit. I enjoyed the sun’s reflection on the water and the couple of boats as they cruised on past. Lunch was taken in at Webb’s via a window seat. Their candy store and gift shop also whispered to me. My yearly trip there isn’t complete without a chocolate covered oreo or two. It was good; I only bought one for myself in milk chocolate and one for my husband in dark. Additionally, the pecan turtles caught my eye and before you knew it one crawled into my hand. There wasn’t time for it to melt. It was hard for me to share the several of these that I purchased! We didn’t pass my favorite little grocery mart with the painted lighthouse, but it is engraved in a memory as is my recent jaunt there even though it was only for an hour or so! The love of the water flows on.”

June 14 &15, 8pm and June 16, 3pm A lively celebration of Baroque music, happening in early June each year, Bach & Beyond features spirited performances of some of the greatest music ever written in an acoustically-ideal Victorian setting. Treat yourself to the lighthearted atmosphere that has distinguished the Festival since its beginning in 1996. Top-flight performances by Baroque specialists will leave you applauding for more!

Phantom of the Opera Saturday, July 20, 7:30pm One of Hollywood’s classic silent films, Phantom of the Opera starring Lon Chaney, comes to life with a live musical score performed by the Andrew Alden Ensemble. Based on the Gaston Leroux novel of the same name, this 1925 American horror film is the tale of a deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to force the management to make the woman he loves a star. The movie remains most famous for Chaney’s intentionally horrific, self-applied makeup, which was kept a studio secret until the film’s premiere. Live

music for the film will be provided by the Andrew Alden Ensemble, a contemporary chamber music group based at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. Call 716-679-1891 for information or visit 1891 Fredonia Opera House, 9 Church St., Fredonia, NY 14063 General Admission Tickets: $12 ($10 Opera House Members)

An Evening with FDR Friday, August 16, 7:30pm On August 14, 1936, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered what has come to be called his “I Hate War” speech at the venerable Chautauqua Institution. To commemorate the 77th Anniversary of this historic event, the Opera House presents Albert McFadyen in An Evening with FDR. American History comes to life in word and song as Roosevelt’s presidential years, 1932-1945, are explored. McFadyen, the voice of FDR in Ken Burns’ PBS series “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea” and a contributor to Burns’ upcoming “The Roosevelts” takes the audience on a trip down memory lane. All of the major events of The Great

Depression and the World War II years are explained in words and song by one of America’s greatest presidents. Call 716679-1891 for information or visit www. 1891 Fredonia Opera House, 9 Church St., Fredonia, NY 14063 General Admission Tickets: $12 ($10 Opera House Members)

Exhibition Series of Great Art: Munch 150 Thursday, September 5, 7:30 p.m. Throughout 2013, all of Norway will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863-1944), one of the towering figures of modern art. Munch 150, an exhibition co-hosted by Norway’s National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo, already is being hailed as a “once-in-alifetime show.”  Global interest is huge - in part, as a result of one of his four The Scream paintings having recently set a public art auction record of $120 million. Captured live in High Definition, this cinematic presentation is part of a global revolution bringing the world’s greatest art exhibitions to cinemas and performing arts centers around the

world. Hosted by Art Historian Tim Marlow and with expert guests, the presentation doesn’t just cover the exhibition’s paintings.  It provides insight into the artist and his world.

History of the Quaker Arts Festival The Orchard Park Jaycees, a leadership training through community service organization, are the proud sponsors of the Quaker Arts Festival. We plan, organize and run the festival. The Quaker Arts Festival began 52 years ago in 1961 by the Orchard Park Presbyterian Church and remained on Church property from 1961 to 1964. In 1965, when the festival grew too large to remain at the Church, the Jaycees were asked to assume

sponsorship and have organized the festival ever since. It was moved to its current location at the Orchard Park Middle School on Route 20A and Lincoln Avenue in the village. The festival is always held on the third full weekend in September. The festival is currently co-sponsored by Bee Publications, who provide a variety of public relations advertising and a special section of the newspaper highlight-

ing exhibitor information and a map of the grounds. The festival attracts approximately 300 talented artists and crafts persons from all over Western New York as well as many other states. The Quaker Arts Festival is the largest suburban art show as well as one of the oldest in Western New York.

Smokey Robinson and Johnny Mathis Join ‘Summer Rush’ Lineup

NIAGARA FALLS and SALAMANCA, N.Y. – Two of America’s timeless singers – Smokey Robinson and Johnny Mathis – join the Seneca Casinos’ “Summer Rush” lineup with performances that will match the thrill of summertime. Both will travel to the Seneca Niagara Events Center in Niagara Falls this July and August. In addition, another five musical acts are booked for those months at the nearby 440-seat Bear’s Den Showroom.

Motown’s first No. 1 R&B hit, “Shop Around” by The Miracles, was sung by the group’s founder and lead singer, Smokey Robinson. More than 50 years later, Robinson continues to grace the stage with impeccable vocals and energy, and will perform live at Seneca Niagara Events Center on Saturday, July 26 at 8 p.m. He penned dozens of hits with The Miracles (“You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “Ooo Baby Baby,” “Tears of a Clown,” “I Second That Emotion” and more), for other Motown greats (“The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “My Girl,” “Get Ready” and more) and for his

own solo career, which began in 1973 (“Just to See Her,” “Cruisin’” and more). Robinson is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, a Kennedy Center honoree and a Grammy Living Legend Award winner. The smooth vocals of Johnny Mathis return to Western New York during an unforgettable performance on Saturday, August 24 at 8 p.m. at Seneca Niagara Events Center. Mathis is a 2003 Lifetime Achievement Grammy winner and wrote the No. 1 hits “Chances Are” and “Too Much, Too Little, Too Late.” Many of his other songs – such as “It’s Not for Me to Say,” “Misty” and dozens of holiday ballads – continue to resonate with audiences young and old. Two interesting facts about Mathis: 1.) His LP album Johnny’s Greatest Hits in 1958 spent an unprecedented 491 consecutive weeks through 1967 on the Billboard Top 100 album charts, which is noted in the Guinness Book of World Records. 2.) He passed up an opportunity in 1956 to try out for the U.S. Olympics as a

high-jumper; instead, he signed his first recording contract with Columbia Records. Tickets for both the Smokey Robinson and Johnny Mathis concerts start at $45 and go on sale Wednesday, June 5 at noon.

Bounce About Inflatables: Bringing Fun and Safety to Kids of All Ages Bounce About Inflatable Party Bouncers in Dunkirk has been bringing joy to kids’ faces since 2001. Among the items for rental are bounce houses to sumo suits as well as a 550-gallon dunk tank. We pride ourselves with being the first company in the area offering entertainment for all events, including birthday parties, school events, community festivals and fundraisers. Starting with only three bounce houses, Bounce About now provides over 25 different items to choose from. We are currently the largest and most versatile company of its kind in the area, providing entertainment from the toddler to the adult. Safety is paramount When you rent from us, we have your child’s safety as our first priority as we set up for your event. Cheaper rentals do not mean you are getting a bargain. Some of these companies are purchasing cheap knock offs made by “backyard manufacturers” that do not comply with safety

code requirements for usage. Products need to be lead free and fire retardant, as well as including other safety features. Prior to renting, the consumer needs to be aware of the products and their construction for the safety of their children. Proper staking is also a very important aspect of the business that many people overlook. We have seen companies using small inappropriate stakes not at the proper depth for maximum safety, which carelessly endangers the occupants of these rentals. This is why accidents happen and insurance costs are skyrocketing. We use 3 ½ foot metal stakes and are always secured at proper depth to insure an enjoyable event without incident. Anything inflatable must be at all times properly secured no matter what the weather is at the time of set up. These are nothing more than a giant balloon and a sudden gust of wind can blow it away in a split second. Insurance is yet another essential part of the business to

When you rent from us, we have your child’s safety as our first priority as we set up for your event. consider when looking for a rental company. Any company that is unwilling to carry insurance is not putting your child’s and others safety first. Many inflatable insurance companies have very strict regulations for bounce house rental companies to comply with before being considered for coverage. This are some of the things to know when considering a rental company for your event. Bounce About Inflatables has many years of experience and knowledge to provide you with the safest and most enjoyable event possible. With all the new companies, people need to realize cheaper is not always better and experience does count.
