Celebrating Woodstock’s 50th!


From The Publisher... by Barry Plaxen Erratum: In our July issue, a painting exhibited at Desmond Campus was incorrectly attributed to Ann Marie Nitti. The lovely Peonies in Bloom is the work of Ann Marie Silvani. See page 27. Synchronicity of the month: A mother-daughter art exhibit in Warwick and a mother-daughter (and son-in-law) art exhibit in Newburgh. Vocabulary Lesson: Con sordino: with the use of a mute.

To The Editor... Fifteen years? It can’t be! But I’m deliriously happy that it is. CANVAS is my “go-to” for every art genre that exists: music, theatre, visual art, spoken word, literature, dance and so much more. I eagerly devour each and every issue. And as an arts creator and publicist, you have been so good to me and the various companies I work for. I am extremely grateful. Thank you, CANVAS, thank you Barry Plaxen, Sophia Krcic and Marc Gerson for all you do for the arts in our community. And happy anniversary! - Carol Montana Artistic Director - Big Sky Productions Publicist - Shandelee Music Festival Shame on me! I did not know this was such a momentous issue, being a Banner 15 Years! So, firstly - congratulations! Look at all those cool, cool covers! As the old saying goes: you’ve come a long way, baby! It is truly great how you memorialize, archive, celebrate, integrate, educate and herald all the arts up here. In applying for the grant I received from Arts Mid-Hudson, I noted that the ONE institution I would want to advertise in and promote my show was

CANVAS! And having so said, I must tell you how pleased I am with the ad in this issue! It is wonderfully set and looks great, Sophia. Thank you so much for all of your help. My performers were just tickled to see themselves in print, both in the ad and the pursuant article. With much appreciation and shared joy for your achievements, - Karen E. Gersch, Montgomery I have been remiss in saying just how much CANVAS and you (and Sophia too!) mean to the “arting” community! When I picked up my last CANVAS and went, “Whaaaaat! 15years!!” I couldn’t believe it. You have been an advocate, and may I say a friend for so long but who’s counting... hoping for many, many more! - Kate Hyden, Livingston Manor Fifteen years ago, when you told Sheila and me that you were starting a paper, we both had visions of a dozen mimeographed sheets stapled together.

anyway and got this thick, lavishly illustrated, professional-looking newspaper. We were stunned. I still am. CANVAS looks great and is fascinating to read. You don’t just advertise concerts, you offer little essays about the composers and their music. I particularly enjoy Philip Ehrensaft’s pieces. You don’t just advertise art shows, you give little bios of the artists. CANVAS is Time Out New York raised to a whole different level. You care about culture, and that shows on every page. You said in this last issue that you’re lucky. So are your readers. Keep it up! - Judith Wink, New York City

Two Musical Feasts for Phillipsport August 3: “Grateful We’re Not Dead” Enjoy a night of tunes among tombs for the 5th annual Poplar Grove Cemetery fundraiser! Fisher & Kean, Breakneck Annie, Barbara Dempsey & Co., Paul Brower Breakneck Annie & RJ Storm, and The Cob’s Cabin Band all perform starting at 5:00pm on August 3 at the Cemetery, 180 Phillipsport Road. Suggested donation: $5 per person. Bring lawn chairs and flashlights! Food and beverages available for purchase. Visit www.poplargrovecemetery.org August 17: Monthly Music Night A critically acclaimed musician from Texas and Alabama, So Brown writes and sings songs of the lost and mysterious south. Brown’s debut album, Point Legere was heralded as “Debut Album of the Year” by Innocent Words magazine, and So Brown Brown’s songs have been covered by such luminaries as Norah Jones. Keith Polasko is a singer/songwriter/ guitarist behind alt-rock outfit Noble Kin.

Initially Polasko performed solo gigs comprised of obscure folk and blues covers while working in bookshops and record stores in NYC. In 2009, Keith joined a shortlived hard rock band and soon after it broke up began working with the group’s keyboardist/ Noble Kin engineer Reed Black to record some original songs in a cabin upstate. It was an extended experiment that eventually yielded the 2014 Noble Kin EP, Cornish Litany. A few years later Polasko added bassist Craig Polasko and drummer Harry Keithline to the mix for what would become 2018’s Let the End Times Roll. The album provides curious glimpses into his view of civilization as a cycle of violence and inequality couched in cryptic lyrics and incongruous classic rock grooves. Hear So Brown and Noble Kin perform on August 17 at 7:00pm for Phillipsport’s Monthly Music Night at the Phillipsport Community Center, 657 Red Hill Road. Doors open at 6:30pm. Suggested donation is $3. Homemade food and dessert available for purchase. For information: 845-313-1772.

For The Love of Judy, Desmond Campus “For the Love of Toto!” Celebrate our beloved four-legged furry friends! Let’s begin with the most famous dog of all: Dorothy’s beloved Toto!

Life w/ Judy Garland: Me & My Shadows The remarkable story of legend Judy Garland is vividly told in this awardwinning film, based on the book written by Garland’s daughter, Lorna Luft. Loved by millions the world over, Judy was the brightest star in Hollywood’s Golden Era. Away from the spotlight however, her devotion was to her family. But while she loved her children unconditionally, they could only desperately try to hang on to their mother as a powerful dependence on alcohol and prescription drugs consumed her life. August 6, 1:00-4:00pm w/Joan Monk

Delaware Valley Opera: Gian-Carlo Menotti and Gilbert & Sullivan News from Narrowsburg’s Delaware Valley Opera (DVO): “We are pleased to introduce our new General Manager, Ken Parks, who is currently directing our upcoming Gilbert & Sullivan production this summer. His commitment to the company is appreciated Parks: “The Very by all of us here at the Ken Model of a Modern Delaware Valley Opera, General Manager” singers, musicians and artists alike. “Our Artistic Director, Carol Castel, will continue to focus on the demands of stage directing. With these two talented people, the Delaware Valley Opera is in good hands.” JULY 27 & 28 and AUGUST 3 & 4 Once upon a very brief time, opera in English flourished in the U.S. Two avenues in particular brought opera to the masses: the NBC Opera Company via television and composer Gian Carlo Menotti via Broadway. NBC Opera performed a total of 43 operas in English from 1949 to 1964, the majority of which were broadcast on the NBC Television Opera Theatre, which included Leontyne Price’s spectacular grand opera debut as Tosca in 1955. Some of Menotti’s early operas were

Nicholas Wuehrmann “Sir Joseph Porter”

Seán Kroll “Captain Corcoran”

Cole Tornberg “Ralph Rackstraw”

introduced on television (Amahl and the Night Visitors, Maria Golovin, Labyrinth) after his The Old Maid and the Thief was commissioned for NBC radio in 1939 following the success of his Amelia Goes to the Ball in opera houses. However, his most successful operas (other than Amahl), The Medium, The Telephone, The Consul and The Saint of Bleecker Street, all debuted on Broadway. Menotti’s The Telephone and The Medium are two short operas which were first paired as a double bill when originally produced in the late 1940s. The Telephone, or L’Amour à trois, is a humorous look at the way the telephone became a third party in the romantic relationship between a young couple. Coloratura Soprano Brooke Schooley sings the virtuoso role of Lucy. The Medium is a darker piece, exploring the boundaries of reality for all involved in the drama. This dramatic work features

Adam Cioffari “Dick Deadeye”

Elise Mark “Josephine”

the compelling singing of Mezzo-Soprano Janice Meyerson, returning to the DVO stage for another season. Directed by Carol Castel, The Telephone and The Medium will be performed weekends, July 27-August 4. Musical Director is Jeremy Chan.

AUGUST 17 & 18, 24 & 25 W.S. Gilbert was knighted by Victoria’s son, King Edward VII, almost 25 years after Sullivan received the honor. The delay may have been due to Victoria’s famous lack of a sense of humor; she was known to admire Sullivan most for his more serious musical compositions, rather than the G&S light operas, which she considered rather frivolous, while everything Gilbert wrote was humorous. H.M.S. Pinafore, or The Lass That Loved a Sailor, opened at the Opera Comique in London in 1878 and ran for 571 performances, which was the second-

Carol Diefenbach “Cousin Hebe”

Mary Burkart “Little Buttercup”

longest run of any musical theatre piece up to that time. H.M.S. Pinafore was Gilbert and Sullivan’s fourth operatic collaboration and their first international sensation, reshaping the commercial theater in both England and the United States. Join the Delaware Valley Opera as Her Majesty’s Ship, the Pinafore, drops anchor in Narrowsburg and welcomes Sir Joseph Porter and a bevy of his sisters, cousins and aunts on stage. One of Gilbert & Sullivan’s earliest and most popular creations, you’ll see why it became a cultural sensation, sailing on a sea of tunes ranging from bouncy to beautiful! Directed by Ken Parks, Pinafore will be performed weekends, August 17-25. Matthew Rupcich is the Musical Director. All performances are in the Tusten Theatre, 210 Bridge Street, Narrowsburg.

The 15th Annual Festival of Wood at Grey Towers, Milford - August 3-4 A giant praying mantis made of wood. Unique henna art on wood. Jewelry, fountain pens and Christmas ornaments made from glorious wood. All are additions to the returning wood craftsmen who will demonstrate, display and sell their specialty items at the 15th Annual Festival of Wood. The family-friendly weekend offers a variety of activities that demonstrate the many ways we use and enjoy wood in our everyday lives. The Pocono Arts Council has many returning artists as well as some new and unique talent. In addition to the wood crafts, the Festival of Wood welcomes

back the Pennsylvania Woodmobile, an interactive exhibit about wood and wood products, demonstrating how logs become lumber, with portable sawmills, and the Chainsaw Chix, popular chainsaw carving artists. A free wildlife show is offered each day. A host of educational exhibitors will be on hand to talk about forests, forest management and forest products, such as

honey, chestnuts and wildlife habitat. Free children’s activities are planned throughout the weekend, including crafts and games. Colorful forest posters, Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl items, and a variety of educational literature and handouts will be distributed for free. Refreshments are available. The U.S. Forest Service and its partners offer these exhibits, activities

and educational materials to help promote the sustainable forestry and conservation message that is a theme throughout the event. This is the same message introduced a century ago by Gifford Pinchot, founder and first chief of the U.S. Forest Service and two-term Governor of Pennsylvania. Grey Towers was his home. Entry to the grounds on August 3 & 4 at Grey Towers National Historic Site, Milford, parking, and a shuttle are all free.

Shandelee Music Festival’s 26th Sunset Concert Series: The Familiar and the New Having celebrated a successful Silver Anniversary last year, the Shandelee Music Festival (SMF) will once again bring internationally renowned, world-class music to the mountains above Livingston Manor for its 2019 season. The season begins on August 3 with An Evening of Extraordinary Guitar, featuring multiple-award-winner Gladius. Described as evoking the Spanish spirit, yet distinctly unorthodox, Gladius mixes influences from classical guitar to rock and beyond. Gladius will be followed by a variety of chamber music Gladius and solo piano concerts with music by Rachmaninoff, Dvorak, Beethoven, Ravel, Mendelssohn, Chopin and Liszt. Local audiences will also be introduced to music by Alexander Alyabyev (1787-1851) and Horatio Parker (1863-1919) on August 6, and to music by Nikolai Kapustin (b.1937) on August 15. Alexander Aleksandrovich Alyabyev, also rendered as Alabiev or Alabieff, was a Russian composer known as one of the fathers of the Russian art song. He wrote seven operas, twenty musical comedies, a symphony, three string quartets, more than 200 songs, and many other pieces. His onemovement Trio in E-flat has been likened sound-wise to early Beethoven, rather than “Russian” - this from a composer who spent his entire life in Russia. Horatio Parker (1863-1919) was born in Auburndale, MA. He first studied composition with George Chadwick at the New England Conservatory in Boston and subsequently with Josef Rheinberger at the Bavarian Royal Conservatory in Munich. Composed in 1904, his Suite for Piano Trio, Opus 35 clearly harks back to that popular in the baroque era as it follows the format of a Bach dance suite, but its style is that of the

Delaware & Hudson CANVAS

romantic era and not the baroque. Nikolai Kapustin studied piano with Avrelian Rubakh (a pupil of Felix Blumenfeld who also taught Vladimir Horowitz) and subsequently withAlexander Goldenweiser at the Moscow Conservatory. During the 1950s he acquired a reputation as a jazz pianist, arranger and composer. Thus, he is steeped in both the traditions of classical virtuoso pianism and improvisational jazz. He fuses these influences in his compositions, using jazz idioms in formal classical structures. On August 6, enjoy An Evening of Chamber Music with the triumphant return of the brilliant Hermitage Piano Trio, last seen in our area in 2016. “Each a soloist in his own right, they imbue their chosen selections with much technical power, inspired phrasing and, most importantly, profound emotion...” - Barry Plaxen.

Hermitage Trio: Sergey Antonov, cello; Misha Keylin, violin; & Ilya Kazantsev, piano. Photo by Lisa-Marie Mazzucco

The above quote comes from witnessing the trio’s 2014 performance of Rachmaninoff’s Trio in G minor Elégiaque. That five-star quality performance of a masterwork from five years ago will be repeated this year and should not be missed by any lover of classical music. It can easily fill the bill as an example of the raison d’etre for attending ANY classical music concert. The Sunset Concert Series continues on August 10 with An Evening of Chamber Music featuring The Juilliard School’s Ansonia Quartet which was formed in September 2016. They will perform quartets by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Ravel. “Melody, harmony and rhythm are usually

thought of as the most important ingredients of music. Ravel’s string quartet, written at the beginning of the 20th century, was nothing less than prophetic in the way it added a fourth element, sound, as a factor of equal importance. The alternation of playing techniques (pizzicato, con sordino, arpeggio, bow on the fingerboard) is as crucial to the unfolding of the piece as the alternation of themes. Their succession, especially in the second and third movements, creates a musical form of its own, entirely nontraditional this time.” - Peter Laki. The Evening of Chamber Music theme will also be featured on August 13 with a joyful sextet of all-star virtuosos, Ensemble Mélange, which advertises the ability to “shake up the concert experience and forge a personal connection with the audience.” Ensemble Mélange is a joyful sextet who mix tried-and-true repertoire with a smorgasbord of jewels from distant genres. Their concert is reformatted as a musician’s party game; after each piece, members of the audience are chosen to pick the next piece from an extensive menu organized by style, nationality, and time period. Whether you’re a purist or a populist, a snob or a noob, eight years old or eighty years old, you’ll leave charmed and punch-drunk on a piece you didn’t know you were going to love. SMF’s annual offering, An Evening of Piano Masterworks, will take place on August 15 with 2017 Berliner International Music Competition Gold Medal winner

Maxim Lando who received national attention in 2017 at the age of fourteen when he appeared on the piano bench alongside pianist Lang Lang, performing the parts intended for Mr. Maxim Lando Lang’s injured left hand, at Carnegie Hall’s Gala Opening Night. The season concludes on August 17 with An Evening of Early Music featuring the return of Andrew Arceci & Company Andrew Arceci and soprano Teresa Wakim, who will perform Baroque music composed by the familiar: Handel, Vivaldi and Corelli, the not-so familiar: Salamone Rossi (c.15701630), Francesco Teresa Wakim Cavalli (1602-1676), Alessandro Stradella (1639-1682) and Giovanni Bononcini (1670-1747), and three newbies to the area: Giulio Caccini (15511618), Tarquinio Merula (1595-1665) and Nicola Porpora (1686-1768). All SMF concerts begin at 8:00pm and take place in the climate-controlled, fully accessible Sunset Concert Pavilion, 442 J. Young Road, Livingston Manor. Each concert is followed by a specialty dessert reception. Individual tickets, season subscriptions, corporate and individual sponsorships, donation opportunities, and membership information are all available at www. Shandelee.org or by calling 845-439-3277.


Hudson Valley Jazz Festival: Tenth Anniversary by Philip Ehrensaft The jazz musician’s nickname for the Hudson Valley is New York City’s sixth jazz borough, in reference to the significant chunk of Big Apple jazz talent that has migrated out to the Hudson Valley. For some jazz musicians, the Valley is a far more pleasant place to live than NYC, but close enough for gigs in the Big Apple and international flights for gigs in Europe and Asia. For others, the preference or circumstance is to forego the fame of the traveling life in favor of a career performing and teaching within the Valley. Drummer Steve Rubin, the organizer of the Hudson Valley Jazz Festival, is part of the Big Apple exodus to the Valley. It didn’t take long for Rubin to realize that the Hudson Valley did not have many venues and occasions where people could hear their talented jazz musician-neighbors perform. So, Rubin decided to do something about it via a jazz festival focusing on musicians living in the Valley, mainly in Warwick and surrounding towns at first, with an intention to cast a geographically wider net in subsequent years. And also, from year one of the festival, a broad tent philosophy in terms of the music featured at the festival: a full gamut of the diverse styles of contemporary jazz, from

fusion through straight-ahead through you name it. But, in contrast to many of today’s “jazz festivals,” not mixing in pop and world music with the intent of selling more tickets. This is a proudly all-jazz jazz festival, and a good place to sample multiple ways of making jazz. The tenth edition of the Festival, which runs from August 8-11 this year, has expanded geographically well beyond the first year as an event focusing on Warwick. Now, after spreading to towns across Orange County, this year, 22 concerts are hosted by 14 towns that include Beacon, Ellenville, Stone Ridge and Woodstock. Musically, the 10th anniversary festival highlights Valley musicians as original composers of the music that becomes the platform for jazz improvisation. Most jazz performances take off from a composed section that sets the tonal and rhythmic

Mike Jackson August 9

framework for the improvisation inspired by this framework. When a jazz composition inspires a large number of musicians over the long term, it becomes a “standard,” one of the literally thousands of compositions that a professional jazz musician carries in his or her mind, fingers and breath. Beyond the concerts with the Composer Series label, the jazz composer offerings include Judi Silvano, Neil Alexander, Robert Kopec, Tabbal, and also all the members of the Hudson Valley Jazz Ensemble performing in the festival’s opening night concert at Sugar Loaf Crossing, August 8 at 6:30pm. It’s no secret that women historically had a tough time getting on the jazz bandstand, outside of prescribed roles as vocalists and, sometimes, pianists. That’s changing, and the 2019 Festival supports that change via ensembles led by women who make very

interesting music. For the festival’s closing night concert on August 11 at 6:30pm at the Warwick Historical Society, a trio led by the iconic drummer Tani Tabbal will perform. Tabbal began his professional career at the ripe old age of fourteen, and is a force in redefining jazz drumming. Every show is free with the exception of two Composer Series’ concerts in Monroe and Warwick. Any place that’s a restaurant or a bar would appreciate your making a purchase, but there is no cover charge. CANVAS calendar listings contain the Orange County concerts in Chester, Highland Mills, Monroe, Montgomery, Newburgh, Pine Island, Sugar Loaf, Walden, Warwick and Washingtonville.

John Conway & Puppets in Monticello Conway Talk: Woodstock Sullivan County Historian John Conway separates fact from fiction as he talks about the Woodstock Music Festival, one of the most iconic events of the 1960’s, at the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library on August 15 at 6:00pm. You will hear John describe the legends and myths that continue to grow surrounding the three days of peace, love and music that occurred 50 years ago: fascinating history as we get ready to remember and celebrate the Woodstock Festival that took place in Bethel, right here in Sullivan County. “Circus on a String” Who really has ever seen a true marionette show? Internationally acclaimed Robert Rogers’ Puppeteers offers a production that is all action and music. Attendees can see a display of acrobats, trained animals, clowns and other colorful characters in Monticello on August 22 at 6:00pm. All are large as life marionettes-puppets that hang from strings. Rogers became fascinated and captivated by the art of puppetry at a very early age. Growing up in and around New York City with parents who were avid theatergoers,

he was taken to experience the wonderful Bil Baird Marionette Theater, to see the prestigious Sergei Obraztsov troupe on tour from Russia, as well as performances by the classic Bunraku Puppet Theater of Japan and the traditional Wayang Golek of Indonesia. These were life changing events that sent him on a course of artistic discovery that continues to today.

Robert Rogers

Rogers has performed internationally and nationally, and brings awe and smiles to audiences of all ages with beautiful puppet characters that he himself created and designed. This production is enjoyed by adults and children and, often, the adults are more amazed than the children. Both programs are free and open to the public at the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library, 479 Broadway, Monticello. For information, call 845-794-4660. August 2019

Free Concert in Campbell Hall On his 11th birthday, Dan Zlotnick picked up his first guitar, a Squire Mini, and taught himself to play. His connection to the guitar and to the music he could make was instant, and it wasn’t long before he traded the Squire for a full-size Gibson SG. Obsessing over concert footage of Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Bruce Springsteen, he honed his skills and looked for opportunities to share what he was learning. As the pony-tailed lead guitarist for his alternative high school rock band, Hot Soup, he performed covers whenever he could and leapt into his career as a songwriter, crafting his first original pieces. Away at college on a baseball scholarship, Dan, now strumming a used Ovation, continued to play and write, developing and cultivating his upbeat, acoustic rock style. Between practices and games, he performed at coffee houses and fundraising events. After graduation, with his shiny new Taylor slung over his shoulder, Dan traveled around the U.S. and Canada for three years as a professional baseball player, gigging in dive bars in Colorado, New Mexico, and Toronto, writing ballads from the bleacher seats. His baseball career behind him, in 2016,

Dan recorded his self-titled debut EP with engineer/bassist Al Hemberger and drummer James Marchionno. In 2017, he went back to Al’s studio and recorded most of his second album with help from musicians James Marchionno (drums), Patricia Santos (cello), Simon O’Keefe (piano), Ron Stenz (organ). Dan performs tirelessly around the Hudson Valley and beyond, taking the stage at the 2018 Pleasantville Music Festival, the Paramount Hudson Valley (opening for Grammy winner Marc Cohn twice), the Towne Crier (opening for Patty Larkin), Garica’s at The Capitol Theater, and more. With a contemporary Americana flair, Dan’s music reflects his love of classic rock and blues. His evocative lyrics, captivating melodies, and energetic performances exude Dan’s passion for creating and sharing his music with everyone around him. Dan performs on August 17 at 7:30pm for Music for Humanity’s 111th Free Performance Night at Noble Coffee Roasters, 3020 Route 207, Campbell Hall. Also performing is a true singer/songwriter veteran: Lydia Adams Davis and another performer TBA.

Forestburgh Playhouse Resident Company 2019 by J. A. Di Bello Once imaginatively labeled the “Miracle of the Forest,” the Forestburgh Playhouse is greater than the sum of its parts. That may be a stretch for math majors, but it serves as a comfortable metaphor for the more creative. Continuing with appreciated metaphors, an earlier director and producer at the playhouse, Norman Duttweiler, once commented, “It’s a busy two-way highway between the bright lights of Broadway and the footlights at Forestburgh Playhouse.” So apropos are metaphors, current producer Franklin Trapp, now in his 6th year at the Forestburgh helm, has continued to foster that highway to the point of an allegorical extravaganza. Scattered among a multitude of substantial contributions to the playhouse, Franklin’s honing and polishing of the theatre’s ResCo (resident company) component has provided nationwide notoriety to the concept of “training for theatre.” As facts will demonstrate, “training” is inadequate as a reflection of the Playhouse program. Members of the company are involved in the concept and practice of what makes theatre work, to a point beyond what was imagined. There are the rehearsals for main stage productions, and while a particular production is on-going, rehearsals

for the new production are underway. Not to mention, a similar scenario involving the Cabaret performance in the Tavern. Following a two-week duration, the whole process begins anew. Meanwhile the menial, yet essential chores of house maintenance need attention. The ResCo experience is not summer camp in the Catskills. In fact, the similarities are more accurately described as boot camp for theatre, an experience that introduces young men and women to the physical, mental and emotional elements of professional theatre. Franklin exhibits a leadership style one might easily classify as paternal, creating family. In that vein Franklin is known to call personally new members prior to arrival to explain, oneon-one, the expectations of the Forestburgh experience. It’s a comfortable home. As many have observed, undertakings in theatre and performance are dependent on that kind of love. Amaya White, of Hope Ridge, NJ is a new member of this year’s ResCo. She’s a sunny example of what it takes to benefit from the Forestburgh experience. As a student at Montclair State University, she is bright, articulate and attractive. Her

Relief Figurative Sculpture in Liberty The Left Bank Art Gallery continues its 2019 summer season of compelling art shows. Up next is a solo show of relief figurative sculptural works by Lori Horowitz entitled, Personas. Lori will share her cast of sculptural characterizations with the community for an in-depth view of her works from the past four years. This engaging installation includes works from the artist’s last three series. Burned into Memory (Kings Park Psychiatric) is a study of personalities and environments. Sculptural images digest the posture of individuals while their faces reflect their stories. The method, Painting with Fire, is a process where images are burned into copper screening creating haunting shadows, translucent images and reflective imagery. Nurture includes life-sized, mixed media relief sculptures depicting individuals in society and their interactions in everyday life. “Often going unseen and unheard, we all contribute to make up this diverse and multi-faceted population,” writes Lori. The work is created collapsing three dimensional pieces into 2 and 3 dimensional space using photography, wire, papier-mâché and paint. Encaustic Wax Portraits: “As the work progresses, the figures become translucent, enabling us to look deeper within these characters. These pieces echo issues of isolation, disassociation and violation, versus 12

confidence, security, and contentment. This series confronts socio/psycho issues and brings light to the attention seekers, as well as the society’s unseen, creating an intimate view of Persona,” explains Lori. The opening reception for the show will be held on August 16, from 4:30pm-7:30pm. Meet the artist during a Q&A about her work on August 31, from 1:00pm-3:00pm. The show is on view from August 16 through September 7 at the Left Bank Art Gallery, 59 N. Main Street, Liberty. For more information, call Kristopher Neidecker, curator, at 845-857-8208.

home environment, it appears, was a strong factor in determining content and direction. Her mom is a music teacher and her Godmother taught Amaya to play the harp at an early age. Early in the run of a mainstage production, ResCo members begin rehearsal for the next Cabaret and production. Subsequently, Amaya is confronted with massive amounts of new material. Inventively, she creates a unique connection between her brain, her eyes and her hand by writing, longhand, and then repeating verbally the new lyrics and routines she is expected to master. Further, her personal begin-the-day routine is instrumental! “I begin each day with meditation, my prayers and writing in my journal of why I am thankful. It centers me for the rest of the day.” Continuing to examine the high caliber of ResCo members, attention is drawn to Eric Graupensperger, a returning member of ResCo. Traveling from Tacoma, Washington’s Puget Sound to the Miracle of the Forest, this young man is thoroughly familiar with the intense demands of the Playhouse as a learning experience. Interestingly, Eric was initially drawn to the

glow of the footlights by his need to please a favorite English teacher and, as one might guess, his yearning to secure the attention of a young coed. It needs to be noted that Eric is an accomplished saxophone player, as has been demonstrated on the main stage at Forestburgh. However, he also harbored a strong desire to explore the realm of film as an academic and career objective. While visiting colleges offering film concentrations his senior year in high school with his dad, Eric felt the pull; it was the follow spot, the crowds, and theatre’s unique suspension of disbelief. “Dad, I have to do theatre!” Eric is currently a junior at Baldwin Wallace University, where he will earn a Bachelor of Music Theatre degree. He expects to work in theatre and has a keen interest in further academic study, with a concentration on acting. This place in the forest ResCo students call home is a mixed equity/non-equity house. Interestingly, a number of the equity actors performing at Forestburgh began their careers in theatre at the Playhouse, performing as members of the theatre’s ResCo. Franklin Trapp, producer and equity actor, was once a member of the ResCo at Forestburgh Playhouse. Because of this background and leadership, i.e., ability to see what others do not, he has assembled a ResCo without equal. (See ad page 28).

artists to make new connections.” On August 1 OCAC is hosting a Story to Stage workshop directed by Ellis. Limited to twenty participants from all walks of life, members are lead through a series of games designed to encourage people to tell stories. These stories can come from life experience, family memories or simply made up. The goal of the workshop is to turn stories from the participants into a Ten Minute Play, read as part of one of the Saturday’s performances. Interested participants can contact Ellis at pelliscult@yahoo.com or 845-978-1776. After the workshop event on August 1, twenty-four play readings will take place on August 2 & 3 at 7:00pm (12 plays each evening). Tickets at the door.

Woodstock’s 50th: 60’s Music & Photos The Sullivan County Historical Society (SCHS) will celebrate Woodstock’s 50th anniversary with two days of live 60’s music and an exhibition of newly discovered black & white photographs of the original Woodstock concert! The collection comes to the Sullivan County Museum courtesy of Divine Corners artist Nick Clemente who “unearthed” them while researching a particular image he wanted to use for a graphic design project. The short version of this extraordinary story involves photojournalist Mark Goff (1947-2018) whose work was stored in an old cabinet in Milwaukee for 50 years. Goff covered the 1969 Woodstock concert for a Milwaukee alternative weekly. He captured over 200 images of the performers and the crowd - everyone from Jerry Garcia, to Joan Baez, Ravi Shankar, Roger Daltrey and Sly Stone. A lifelong Milwaukeean, Goff enlisted in the Navy in 1965. Upon leaving the military, Goff became a staple of Milwaukee life as a photojournalist. His black & white photos tell the story of the concert with extraordinary sensitivity and a unique perspective - he has given us a new look at the original 1969 concert. Goff’s collection will be on display at SCHS (and also nearby at Gallery 222) throughout August. (Little Sparrow, Greg Castro and friends will perform songs of

Then, on August 4 from 2:00pm-4:00pm, the SCHS First Sunday Music and History program will celebrate music by one of the most iconic bands to emerge from the era of the 60’s: the Grateful Dead. They performed at Woodstock and in the 70’s, Jerry Garcia returned to perform a concert in Fallsburg! Guitarist Fred Scholl and bassist Mike Manuele who have performed the music of the Grateful Dead for over 30 years will join Little Sparrow for an afternoon of live jamming! The photo exhibit will include a special selection of photos of the Grateful Dead from the 1969 concert. The Sullivan County Museum is located at 265 Main Street, Hurleyville. Both events are free, donations are gratefully accepted. For info, call 845-434-8044.

May I Have A Word With You ... Quips, Quotes & Quiddities with Carol Pozefsky SOUL When asked to define soul, singer/songwriter Ray Charles said, “Soul is when you can take a song and make it part of you - a part so true, so real, people think it must have happened to you...it’s like electricity; soul is power.” Composer Giuseppe Verdi wrote, “When I am alone with my notes, my heart pounds, the tears stream from my eyes, and my emotion and my joys are too much to bear.” Folk singer Joan Baez: “My creative energy seems to come most strongly when I’m falling in love or when I am moved by political or religious sentiments.” Bob Dylan: “My songs were there before I came along. I just sort of took them down with a pencil.” The legendary soulful French chanteuse Edith Piaf: “For me, singing is a way of escaping. It’s another world. I’m no longer on earth.” LOVE Are you a lover of movies? You are a cinephile. A lover of wine? An oenophilist.

A lover of animals? You are a philologist. Lover of vinyl records? A discophile. A lover of the beautiful? You are a philocalist. Lover of learning? A philomath. A lover of women? A philogynist. DANCE The waltz, a slow, rolling dance in triple time, was first danced by German peasants in the 13th century. The word sprung from the German walzen meaning to revolve. The waltz quickly caught on, spread to all levels of European society and by the 19th century, Americans too had fallen in love with the swirling, romantic grandeur of the dance in 3/4 time. FOREVER YOUNG To be a Peter Pan is to be a grown-up but one who never really acts like one; a carefree person who remains forever youthful. We found this little rhyme about such a person: Let’s raise our glass to Peter Pan! He never got to be a man. He never got the can or axe, And never paid an income tax. He took life easy, on the wing, And all he did was prance and sing. He zipped around without a care; Well, maybe he had something there!

Milford: Opera! Pike! Park! Live opera will fill the air in Milford on for a free, family-friendly Opera! Pike! Park! concert on the lawn of the Ann Street Park. Classic arias, duets, and songs will be performed by singers from the prestigious Academy of Vocal Arts (AVA) in Philadelphia. AVA was established in 1934 to train young artists with the potential to become international opera soloists. They have been so successful that the Metropolitan Opera now presents The Beverly Sills Award to an AVA graduate each year. Their program in Milford will include five performers. More information on the five performers and their program will be announced in the coming weeks, but you can follow updates on Facebook or email operapikepark@gmail. com to be on the email promotion list. Opera! Pike! Park! is part of the Music in the Park series presented by Milford Borough’s Parks and Recreation Committee. “I’ve always loved opera, and with all the wonderful festivals we offer here in Milford, I still felt opera was missing. I had a great response from an enthusiastic group of volunteers so off we went. We hope to make it an annual event,” said event producer Xavier Morales.

Milford Councilwoman Annette Haar said, “Bringing an opera program to Milford provides entertainment, attracts visitors and reinforces Milford’s positioning as a regional center for art and culture. But more importantly, it exposes young people to an art form they may not otherwise have experienced. That can spark the imagination and inspire dreams in those young people.” Music in the Park coordinator Michael Zimmerman said, “We are delighted to add Opera! Pike! Park! to our concert series. Music brings a community together and we appreciate the many volunteers and supporters who have made our summer music series possible each year.” Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, snacks and beverages to the August 25, 3:30pm-5:00pm event. While admission is free, reservations via Eventbrite at https:// bit.ly/2XN1aRq are requested so organizers can plan appropriately. A limited number of seats for seniors and those with mobility issues are available at the Eventbrite link. For pre and post concert dining see ads on page 25 for Apple Valley and WaterWheel. Both locations are less than five minutes from Ann Street Park, which is on 5th and West Ann Streets.

“Shakespeare on the Farm” Farm Arts Collective (FAC) will present a new, original site-specific production entitled Shakespeare on the Farm, created by FAC ensemble and co-directed by FAC artistic director Tannis Kowalchuk and Mimi McGurl. Shakespeare on the Farm invites audiences of all ages to take a guided walk across a working organic farm to witness a series of scenes and soliloquies inspired by the characters and stories from William Shakespeare’s most famous plays. Spectators will gather at Willow Wisp Organic Farm and be led on a farm tour by Titania, Queen of the Fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Along the way, the audience will encounter other famous characters from the Shakespeare canon, performed by the FAC players, fondly referred to as “The Rudest of the Mechanicals” by the barker/ musician (Doug Rogers). Kowalchuk and the ensemble have created a montage of scenes and characters from some of the most famous Shakespearean tragedies and comedies including Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, Hamlet, Othello, The Tempest and Macbeth. Drawing parallels between human nature, the cycle of life, and the forces that shape land, weather and the natural world itself, Shakespeare on the Farm is a poetic look at nature, both human and ecological.

“King Lear” (on stilts!)

The devised performance will deliver a theatre experience full of original and early music, stilt-walking and drumming, featuring a Madrigal choir and the signature FAC stilt walkers. Performed by a cast of 20, the visually evocative performance will take place in various locations on the farm and offer a delightfully new perspective on many of the iconic characters and plays known today. Audiences do not need to be familiar with the plays in order to enjoy Shakespeare on the Farm. The August 3, 4, 10, & 11 performances will take place at 6:30pm at Willow Wisp Organic Farm, l38 Hickory Lane, Damascus, PA (less than five minutes from the Callicoon bridge). Tickets can be purchased online at www.farmartscollective.org The play starts and ends with the concept “All the World’s a Stage” and is designed to give an opportunity for spectators “perchance to dream” a little.

CAS: “Community Coloring Book Project” Artist Page Laughlin’s Community Coloring Book Project aims to engage members of a community by asking them to give their image to a community coloring book to reinforce a sense of belonging and inclusion. Not only do they contribute to the artwork, but they receive a drawing in return - a portrait of a community given in free exchange. Laughlin generates the coloring book images by taking photos, which are converted to hybrid between digitally-generated and hand-rendered. These drawings are edited with color removed and details preserved or deleted. The resulting drawing serves as both a portrait and an open template for one’s imagination to fill in - literally and metaphorically. Community engagement events take place

on August 3, 10, 17 & 24, from 11:00am6:00pm. Laughlin’s exhibit runs from August 1-29 at the Catskill Art Society’s Laundry King, 65 Main Street, Livingston Manor. A reception will be held on August 17 from 4:00pm-6:00pm. For info: www.catskillartsociety.org

This play will definitely leave you with a different impression of the Grimm’s Fairy Tales you grew up with.” “This production will feature cast members from our Summer Intensive Theater School,” said Katherine Weatherford, Greenwood Lake Theater CoArtistic Director. “Last year, when we presented Oliver! our local students really took on the challenge with great enthusiasm and were absolutely terrific.” Ms. Weatherford will play the role of Cinderella, and Ms. McKinley performs the role of The

Two Musical Feasts for Milford August 3: Classical Music Celebration

Milford will host a free Classical Music Celebration on August 3, with indoor and outdoor performances by groups of musicians, singers and dancers throughout the historic district of Milford from Noon5:00pm with an orchestral gala at 7:00pm in the historic Milford Theatre, 114 E. Catherine Street. The music will range from classical favorites to less well-known works - from Bach to Offenbach to beyond. Featured artists include the Manhattan Symphonie Strings (see photo above) under violinistconductor Gregory Singer as well as Brass Quintessence, the Mountain Winds Woodwind Quintet, and the Delaware Valley Choral Society conducted by Jeff Fornoff. That evening the musicians will join together for the grand finale at the Milford Theatre. The first Classical Music Celebration took place in the summer of 2016, and the second in 2017. They were both great successes,

so Kindred Spirits Arts Programs is producing the event again this year. The event promotes the beauty of classical music and showcases some of the area’s talent while calling attention to the handsome historic district of Milford and its surroundings. The exact schedule and repertoire will be announced at www.kindredspiritsarts.org and in the media. No tickets required. August 17: Feigelson-Matheus Duo

The Feigelson-Matheus Duo includes Milford-raised Eugene Feigelson on violin and Jacob Matheus on guitar. They will weave between eras and genres embellished by short, improvised interludes for Kindred Spirits Arts Program on August 17 at 5:30pm at Grey Towers National Historic Site, 151 Grey Towers, Milford. The program, entitled Weaving Through Harmony, includes Bach, Paganini, Faure, Gershwin, and original music by the artists. For info: www.kindredspiritsarts.org See ads on page 25 for dining options.


Celebrating the Wawayanda at Pacem in Terris for 2 Days Wawayanda Creek is a tributary of the Wallkill River. It starts northeast of Warwick and flows southwest through Pacem in Terris to its confluence with Black Creek just north of Highland Lakes, NJ, forming Pochuck Creek, which flows north into the Wallkill River at Pine Island. “In what will be a two day extravaganza,” says Lukas Franck, Pacem’s helmsman, “there will be The Serenade Quartet plus two singers and percussion on August 31 and The Serenade Orchestra on September 1.” The Serenade Quartet will present a concert with percussionist Dan Haskins on August 31 at 5:00pm. The ensemble will be joined by internationally recognized singers Abigail Fischer and Jason Slayden (residents of Orange County) presenting water themed music (including Deep River), songs by Schubert, the duet by Brahms Es rauschet das Wasser, and others to be announced. Jason Slayden is internationally recognized for his interpretation of leading tenor roles of Puccini, Verdi, and French Grand Opera, which he championed with companies such as Lyric Opera of Chicago, Seattle Opera, Santa Fe Opera, and Vancouver Opera. Soprano Abigail Fischer has starred in contemporary operas such Du Yun’s 2017 Pulitzer Prize-winning Angel’s Bone, as well as more standard operatic and

chamber repertoire, with companies such as Los Angeles Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Cincinnati Opera, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Orchestra of Saint Lukes. Other works performed by the ensemble will include a Haydn Quartet and Mendelssohn’s Fingal’s Cave (aka Hebrides Overture). Fingal’s Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staffa, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, known for its natural acoustics. In 1829, Mendelssohn took a memorable trip to Fingal’s Cave. The journey made an immediate impression - he wrote the first few bars of what became the Hebrides Overture on a postcard to his sister saying, “how extraordinarily the Hebrides affected me.”

“Alius Bodies”

Jason Slayden Abigail Fischer

On September 1 at 5:00pm The Serenade Orchestra (Krista Bennion Feeney and Keats Dieffenbach violins, Jessica Troy viola, J. Feeney bass, RJ Kelley and Alexandra Cook horns), will play Beethoven’s Sextet in E Flat major Op. 81b. “The first edition of this work in 1810 was scored for ‘violoncello e basso’”, explained Bennion-Feeney. “By 1846 publishers had removed basso and ever since it has been performed only with cello. In 2007 it was published with a bass and cello part. We will perform it with bass! Cast in a delightful Serenade style, this is Paganini for the horns. We will also perform Fingal’s Cave once again, only this time with two horns instead of percussion!” ...and, as detailed in the July CANVAS, don’t miss the return of the Manhattan Chamber Players to Pacem in Terris, 96 Covered Bridge Road, Warwick, on August 4 at 5:00pm.

Side of the Road Theatre: If I Had The Wings of An Angel... by J. A. Di Bello Spectacle and commotion are common in the historic Upper Delaware Valley, stretching from Hancock to Matamoras. Its terrain: extremely rural and exceptionally rustic as it impressively passes through the Appalachian Valley, the Hawk’s Nest and Historic Milford. In addition to territorial battlefields and a plethora of breathtaking vistas, the Upper Delaware is home to the frequently honored Side of the Road Theatre Company. Based primarily in the Pike County borough of Milford, Side of the Road Theatre is composed of a steadfast group of devoted thespians, whose purpose is to present meaningful, live, regional theatre. This stalwart task is no matter to be taken lightly. Beth Kelley has accepted this challenging undertaking as the Theatre’s leader, accompanied by accomplished actor/director Evelyn Albino. The term meaningful is used here not to demean a specified category of live theatre, but to distinguish meaningful theatre as a genre designed to engage the inner soul of the theatregoer. Nearly all variations or genres of theatre are capable of offering meaningful concepts. However, for purposes here, the term will not apply to simple comedy, solely designed to create humor, or slapstick to cause laughter.

Meaningful drama is designed to confront the concepts that cause a person to be what he/she is, frequently causing introspection, and evaluation of the self through focus and similar processes. Exploration of personal concepts is an important task, as an approach to considering the purpose of Side of the Road Theatre’s production of Lyle Kessler’s dark yet tender play for 3 adult men, Orphans. The characters of this moving drama are complex, each representing various stages of “faulty psychological mechanisms.” Over the years, the brothers have developed a mutual dependency that’s interrupted when the older brother kidnaps a man from a local saloon. The play develops an O. Henry-type twist that will tease the audience with the possibility of “comic relief.” As an aware director, Beth Kelley is adamant in her approach to actors and the style used to deliver a multi layered character on stage. Observation reflects Beth’s belief in the concept of actors knowing their characters externally and internally, i.e., spiritually. It’s a concept directly from the noted Russian teacher of acting Stanislavski and considered to be a prerequisite to adequately and emotionally representing a

E’lissa in Dingmans

character on stage. Fortunately, Ms. Kelley, knowing the hurdles presented here has selected Darren Fouse, Trevor Nardone and Rocky Nardone, three strong and reliable actors for this demanding and rewarding play. On the interesting side of happenstance, this play’s wellknown author Lyle Kessler is not only a distinguished playwright, but a noted director who studied with Lee Strasberg, co-founder of the Group Theatre and later director of the Actors Studio (1951). And as this discussion concerns the directorial approach of Ms. Kelley and her preference for “knowing” the internal as well as the external character, Strasberg is considered to be the father of “method acting,” a technique based on the teachings of Stanislavski, as they have developed over the years. Side of the Road will present Kessler’s Tony nominated drama Orphans at the historic Milford Theatre, 114 East Catherine Street, August 9-11. Tickets at the door. Cash only. For more information about Side of the Road Theatre, visit their Facebook page. For pre-theatre dining, see ads on page 25 for Apple Valley Restaurant and WaterWheel Cafe.

CAS - September 1 at Beaverkill Inn For the third year, the Catskill Art Society (CAS) will partner with the Dance Gallery Festival to offer the Level UP dancers a three-day residency in the picturesque mountains of the Catskills. The artists will open rehearsals to the public on August 30 (3:00pm-6:00pm), August 31 (10:00am-1:00pm & 3:00pm-6:00pm) and September 1 (10:00am-2:00pm) at the Laundry King, 65 Main Street, Livingston Manor, and the residency will culminate with a free performance at the Beaverkill Valley Inn. The Dance Gallery Festival became a well-

known festival with annual showcases in NYC, Texas and now Livingston Manor. The production of modern concert dance is often challenged by the scarcity of suitable and affordable performance venues. The Dance Gallery Festival addresses this problem by providing a stateof-the-art theater, complete with production staff, marketing, and public relations support to showcase each choreographers work. The free performance happens on September 1 at 7:00pm at the Beaverkill Valley Inn, 7 Barnhart Road, Livingston Manor. For info: www.catskillartsociety.org

A Taxi Ride Through Brooklyn at NACL Created by Modesto “Flako” Jimenez, Taxilandia is a sitespecific play-within-atour of a city. Audience members become passengers on a dramatic reunion with Flako’s neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn. Taxilandia is a front-row, backseat ride on a quest to save the vital tapestry of community in America. The play is inspired by Flako’s nine years driving a taxicab in Bushwick and is drawn from his documentations of conversations with passengers, residents, natives, and immigrants. Being a cab driver was a frontrow seat to the gentrification happening in the neighborhood. He saw and heard from

all sides - from the transient “gentrifier” to the displaced locals. He watched and listened to how locals adapted to the changing landscape, taking on that complicated dance with humanity and personal growth. Seeing collegeeducated friends walk the neighborhood with more ownership than the ones who killed to survive, Flako understood and witnessed a story that was daily evolving, but not being told. Oye Group presents Taxilandia on August 8 at 6:00pm at NACL Theatre, 110 Highland Lake Road, Highland Lake. For tickets: www.nacl.org
