Delaware Valley Operaoperettasingspiel “Cox and Box” and “Trial by Jury” “Our talented cast can deliver this music the way it was intended to be sung. And the intimate space at the Tusten Theater gives you a close up experience that will tickle your funny bone with laughs,” says Delaware Valley Opera (DVO) Artistic Director Carol Castel. “If you enjoyed last year’s Mikado then you have to come back and see these two hilarious one-act gems. Don’t forget to bring the kids and grandkids!” See July CANVAS for more details on the July 28 & 29 and August 4 & 5 performances of these two early Sir Arthur Sullivan operas (a/k/a operettas). www.dhcanvas.com - see page 13. “The Magic Flute” If the Sullivan works are intermittently labeled as operas or operettas, this Mozartean masterpiece can be labeled as opera or singspiel, a form of German light opera, popular in the late 18th century. Singspiel (German) was used mostly to denote that there was spoken dialogue in the ‘opera’, as was the term Opera Comique (French) used for the same reason. Opera Buffa (Italian) is slightly different in that the dialogue is sung as “recitative”, in the rhythm of ordinary speech with many words on the same note.
Singspiel plots are generally comic or romantic in nature, and frequently include elements of magic, fantastical creatures, and comically exaggerated characterizations of good and evil. Written by Mozart at the age of thirtyfive, not long before his Hannah Fuerst: “Queen Genna Vysotsky Robert Mellon death, The Magic Flute, of the Night” & “Papagena” “Sarastro” “Papageno” sung here in English, has elements of magic, Freemasonry symbolism, by Emanuel Schikaneder, is thought by and political satire, all set to German folk scholars to be based on many sources. The libretto is also a natural continuation of a tunes and classic operatic writing. Flute features the high-flying singing series of fairy tale operas produced at the of the Queen of the Night, the high priest time by Schikaneder’s theatrical troupe with Sarastro’s solemn intoning, along with the which Mozart was involved. In composing the opera, Mozart evidently antic birdcatcher Papageno’s duet with his kept in mind the skills of the singers intended soul-mate Papagena, and the lovely singing for the premiere, which included both of the two would-be lovers, Tamino and virtuosi and ordinary comic actors asked to Pamina. This is a delightful, beautiful, and sing for the occasion. Thus, the vocal lines magical journey into a memorable fantasy for Papageno - sung by Schikaneder himself world only the genius of Mozart could and Monostatos are often stated first in create. the strings so the singer can find his pitch, Editor’s note: If you’ve never witnessed and are frequently doubled by instruments. the Queen of the Night’s difficult and In contrast, Mozart’s sister-in-law Josepha exciting arias, you are in for a thrilling, Hofer, who premiered the role of the ‘coloraturactic’ treat: vocal acrobatics of the Queen of the Night, evidently needed little highest order! such help.

combined voices of different ability levels. The vocal ranges of two of the original singers of Queen of the Night and Sarastro, for whom Mozart tailored his music, have posed challenges for many singers who have since recreated their roles. Both arias of the Queen of the Night, require high F6, rare in opera. At the low end, the part of Sarastro, includes a conspicuous F2 in a few locations (middle C is C4 - so F6 is over two octaves above middle C, and F2 is two octaves below). Flute is directed by Carol Castel. Matthew Rupcich conducts the orchestra on August 18, 19, 25 & 26. Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm at the Tusten Theater, 210 Bridge Street, Narrowsburg.

You Can Dance & Jive in Forestburgh! Mamma Mia! is a jukebox musical written by British playwright Catherine Johnson, based on the songs of ABBA, composed by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, former members of the band. Ulvaeus and Andersson, who composed the original music for ABBA, were involved in the development of the show from the beginning. Singer AnniFrid Lyngstad has been involved financially in the production and she has also been present at many of the premieres around the world. Over 60 million people have seen the show which has grossed $2 billion worldwide since its 1999 debut. A film adaptation starring Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Stellan Skarsgård and Julie Walters was released in July 2008. The sequel was released in early 2018. The show has had productions in London’s West End, where it is the seventh longestrunning show in West End history, as well as various international productions. Its Broadway incarnation closed in September 2015 after a 14-year run, making it the ninth longest-running show in Broadway history.
Did You Know...Fun Facts! During early London previews, audiences laughed so hard at the actors’ serious delivery of dialogue like “Chiquitita, tell me...what’s wrong?” that scenes had to be hastily redirected with tongues firmly in cheeks. The cast goes through 121 bras per show that’s a lot of underwire! When the stage show was performed in Edinburgh, during Lay All Your Love On Me, the male dancers included a ‘Highland Fling’ in their routine. In the film version of Mamma Mia! (2008) one dancer can be seen performing the same steps during the song. 33,000 rhinestones have to be individually sewn on to the costumes used in Super Trouper. If just one rhinestone were to come loose, it’s believed the whole Swedish economy could collapse. Mamma Mia! is the show with the most number of people per booking - more than The Lion King - with an astonishing average of 3.5 tickets per single booking. You can dance, you can jive...having the time of your life, when Mamma Mia! is staged at the Forestburgh Playhouse from August 14-26. For tickets: 845-794-1194.

“Songs imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism...they take the stage by storm! - The New York Times. “They have an air of both Floyd and maybe Bowie at times atop their folkcountry roots (note, not fauxcountry) - but it’s done with a warmth and comfort of a mystical Nebraska or poetic Crazy Horse.” Sleazegrinder, UK. Together since the late 90’s, The Slambovian Circus of Dreams began in Sleepy Hollow, New York as an art school project. Known for their electrifying live performances, the band has toured nationally and abroad, playing a moody but upbeat alt-roots rock with an extensive instrumental arsenal - accordion, cello, mandolin, and theremin. Pioneers of the Americana genre, the band’s music is equal parts Washington Irving and Woodstock, tapping a broad palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floyd-esque cinematic anthems. The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have been called “the hillbilly Pink Floyd,” which
is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Bob Dylan, David Bowie and Syd Barrett. Their latest album, A Very Unusual Head, was released in 2017. On The Lawn is a free weekly summer concert series with performances on Thursdays at 6:30pm running through August 30. Hear The Slambovian Circus of Dreams when they perform On The Lawn on August 16 at 6:30pm. Bring a chair or blanket, snacks and friends to On The Lawn, 1405 Kings Highway, Sugar Loaf.

Shandelee Music Festival Celebrates 25 Years! The year 2018 represents a momentous milestone for the Shandelee Music Festival (SMF). The Festival’s Co-Chair and Founding President, Daniel Stroup was so impressed by his first visit to Shandelee over 25 years ago, that he was inspired by the breathtaking mountainside with its delicately balanced inlay of streams and ponds woven against the texture of trees and flora. His dream to “develop a classical piano festival in the Catskill Mountains” has been realized and is now celebrating a quarter century of bringing international musical excellence via worldrenowned musical performers to the Catskills to the mountains above Livingston Manor, and through their Outreach Program, to other venues around Sullivan County. During the past 25 years, over 16,000 people have attended SMF’s concerts, over 300 students have benefited from the organization’s Educational Program, and over 75 Outreach Concerts have been presented for those who do not have an opportunity to attend a live classical performance. Outreach venues include the Sullivan County Adult Care Center, Catskill Regional Medical Center, The Center for Discovery, The Recovery Center, Sullivan County Correctional Facility, Livingston Manor Central School, Monticello Central School, Sullivan West Central School, Eldred Central School, and Sullivan County Community College. With a continuing focus on education, over 2000 Sullivan County students have attended the SMF’s Outreach Concerts, and thanks to a recent generous sponsorship from Sullivan County resident Heidi Horak, any student who attends any SMF concert does so at no charge. So, let the quarter-century celebration begin! The Festival opens on August 4 with an Extraordinary Night of Broadway featuring pianist and vocalist Michael Ferreri and Friends (John Carden & Tony Oakley) performing music from South Pacific, Titanic, If/Then, City of Angels, Wild Party, Closer Than Ever, Into The Woods, Evening
Primrose, Road Show and The Bridges Of Madison County. The concerts continue August 9-18 with various world class chamber ensembles and soloists. Over the two week period, they will perform music by Copland, Milhaud, Debussy, Stravinsky, des Prez, Debussy, Poulenc, Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, Scriabin, Schumann, Brahms, Mozart, Turina, Arensky, Federico Longás (1893-1968) and Juri Seo. Federico Longás studied with Enrique Granados and worked as an internationally recognized pianist and composer. As a composer he wrote mainly songs, but also works for orchestra, an operetta and a number of works for piano. Seo, a recent awardee of the Library of Congress’ Koussevitzky Commission, is a composer and pianist based in Princeton, NJ. She seeks to write music that encompasses extreme contrast through compositions that are unified and fluid, yet complex. She merges many of the fascinating aspects of music from the past century - in particular its expanded timbral palette and unorthodox approach to structure - with a deep love of functional tonality, counterpoint, and classical form. A bit of Anton Arensky’s (1861-1906) superior music has recently been heard to great advantage locally, always thrilling audiences who are surprised that he is rarely recognized as one of Russia’s great composers. His brilliant Quartet # 2 was performed by the Manhattan Chamber Players at Shandelee (2015) and at Warwick’s Pacem In Terris (2016), and by the St. Lukes Chamber Ensemble in Beacon (2011). His Variations on Tchaikovsky was offered by the Newburgh Concert Strings in Montgomery (2010), and his Piano Trio # 1 was performed to great acclaim in Milford (2012) by Yosif Feigelson, Eugene Feygelson and Elisaveta Kopelman, and by Nurit Pacht, Caroline Stinson and Tannis Gibson in Jeffersonville (2009). You can be introduced to the wonders of Arensky’s Piano Trio # 1, Op. 32 (or revisit its beauty) at Shandelee this year when the Contista Piano Trio performs it. There will also be music from Copland

“The Great Outdoors” in Hurleyville “The ‘great outdoors’ generally refers to the untamed wilderness away from the comforts of civilization, and it is as much an idea as it is a physical environment. The Romantics in the nineteenth century tried to capture the experience of losing oneself in the awe-inspiring power of nature, what they termed ‘the sublime’. “For this series, I considered the sublime in the age of mobile devices, where the awe-inspiring power of nature is often experienced digitally and where an escape from civilization can be an act of imagination,” says photographer Noah Kalina. Kalina, who has been featured in New York Times Magazine, Popular Mechanics and Food & Wine among many other publications, was featured in Cabin Porn, a book collection of stories and photographs of unique houses in Upstate, New York, which the New York Times called, “An enchanting rabbit hole of tiny handmade houses.” With clients such as Levi’s, Gucci, 8

Locavore Jazz: The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival, Year 9 by Philip Ehrensaft Drummer Steve Rubin, the founder of the Hudson Valley Jazz Festival, correctly sees the link between national jazz fame and musical excellence as highly imperfect. While the nationally famous combine raw talent and very hard work to earn prime place on bandstands, numerous equally well-endowed and hardworking musicians never attain fame and fortune. Sometimes the different outcomes are just life’s luck of the draw. Other times it results from conscious choices by the highly talented. Achieving national fame requires many days on the road. Some exceptionally fine musicians decide that the prize is not worth the cost: they like where they live; they like being with their families, friends and neighbors. They prefer the good life built at home via local concerts, teaching, and studio gigs. The Hudson Valley is exceptionally replete with jazz musicians who turned away from pursuing national fame in favor of building careers centered on the life they value at home. Our region is the prime instance of America’s fastest growing demographic zone, “exurbia,” the regions lying between far suburbs and vast rural America. A supremely talented and eccentric New York
literati, A.C. Spectorsky, caught onto this first. Spectorsky’s The Exurbanites was published in 1955. It charted new ways of commuting and living in the zone stretching from northern Westchester through Columbia counties. Greater New York’s exurbia is a preferred choice for both jazz musicians plying the national circuits, and for talented musicians who opt for centering their lives locally. Being within an hour or two’s drive from the bridges over the Hudson and East Rivers to the world’s jazz capital makes living in small town exurbia considerably more viable than in other parts of the USA. Warwick, Rubin’s home base, is a prime choice for jazz musicians. It’s closer to NYC than other places, like Woodstock, that attract musicians. Warwick’s black dirt farmland precludes suburban developments seen in the other towns equidistant from
Callicoon Poems & Art Country Voices Poetry Group and Bluestone Poets will present Running with the Muse: An Ekphrastic Collaboration on August 4 from 5:00pm-8:00pm. This event will offer an interplay “Aunt Rozzie” of an art exhibit by Claire Coleman opening and poetry reading. Eleven poets were given artworks and assigned to write a poem based on the artwork. Both the eleven poets and eleven artists will discuss their works at the event. Tina Hazarian will offer her poem based on Claire Coleman’s painting created from a chance discovery she and two others happened upon during a quest in Livingston Manor to piece together the story of a mysterious man. Artworks and chapbooks will be available for purchase. Come and be moved by fine art and great poetry! There will be music and light refreshments, too! It all takes place at River Family Wellness, 21 Lower Main Street, Callicoon. For information, call 845-887-9004. Free admission, donations appreciated. 10 Delaware & Hudson CANVAS August 2018
NYC. Throw in a central village with nice old buildings and you have an attractive location for musicians who want out of the city. Plus: jazz musicians are, by necessity, ingenious at spotting good locations like Warwick before other people catch on. Rubin was a jazz emigrant to Warwick, and quickly recognized that 1) he was far from an isolated case; and 2) people in and around Warwick were neither aware of the jazz talents living next door nor getting opportunities to hear them perform. A summer jazz festival drawing on ample local talent would create that awareness, and hopefully spark yearround local opportunities to savor live jazz. Rubin was and is right. On August 9, he’s back with his ninth annual Festival of class act ensembles spanning a broad spectrum of jazz styles. A pre-festival concert at the Amity Gallery’s opening of a jazz in art exhibit (see pg. 25) happens on
August 4 at 7:30pm: a quartet version of the Hudson Valley Jazz Ensemble featuring saxophonist Eric Person, Joe Vincent Tranchina on keyboards, Rubin on drums and Lew Scott on bass. Topflight musicians all. The official August 9 opening is a free concert starting with the New York Swing Exchange, followed by a quartet led by powerhouse drummer Karl Latham. Latham’s “Acoustic Unit” includes the very interesting Latin Jazz pianist Oscar Perez. At times there’s too much good music going on: I find myself torn on Friday night the 10th between catching premier jazz vocalist Judi Silvano performing in Walden, or the Beyond Jazz improv group followed by vocalist Gabriele Tranchina and the exceptional pianist Joe Vincent Tranchina in Warwick. The wrap-up August 12 concert by En Masse at the Limoncello Café in Goshen represents the festival’s core spirit. Trumpeter and co-leader Chris Persad pays the mortgage by teaching in a local high school. Bassist Robert Kopec is a jazz freelancer based in the Valley. Both are damned fine jazz musicians.

Goshen Art League: Solo and Group Shows Walk and Gallop Into Goshen
“Abandon” by Richard Weber
RICHARD WEBER SOLO SHOW Richard Weber has been drawn to art since the third grade. He continued his love of art through school and attended SUNY New Paltz. A self-taught artist, he has nurtured his love of art by creating a variety of works throughout the past forty-plus years. A solo show of his works demonstrating his diverse interests and his means of expressing them will be on view at Griffith Olivero Realtors 226 Main Street, Goshen, thru August 29. DENNIS FANTON SOLO SHOW “I believe that there are potential subjects for paintings all around us and it is up to the artist to capture the inspiration and present it to the viewer,” says Dennis Fanton. “My individual means of expression tends to focus on color, brushwork and strong use of values. I enjoy working in oil and pastel and
Work by Dennis Fanton
prefer on-site painting which involves the use of all my senses. My style lends itself toward impressionism, but I let my subject dictate the handling of the piece. “Art has always been a dominant form of expression during my childhood and beyond. Color always fascinated me and I was never afraid to explore it. Gardening is my second passion, and my gardens, home, and many pets have been the subjects of my work. My artistic journey is always fulfilling to me as I experiment with new ways of looking at things and different approaches in my media and style.” Fanton’s solo show at the Berkshire Bank, 2 South Church Street, Goshen, runs thru September 25. ...and don’t miss the popular Goshen Art Walk on August 3, from 6:00pm-9:00pm in Webster Park, 25 Main Street.

Jeremy Baum Performs at The Ritz Jeremy Baum began playing the piano at age five, and was playing classical piano recitals by his teens. He grew up listening to his parent’s record collection, as well as the various jazz-organ and R&B sounds of Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff and Ray Charles. Jeremy’s trio is rooted in the blues and funky soul-jazz sounds of the late 1960s (think Booker T. and the MG’s, The Meters, Jimmy Smith!) His style is also informed by the current masters of the
groove from the jam-band scene (Medeski, Martin, and Wood, Soul-Live). Jeremy has been playing festivals and jazz clubs since the release of his first album. His band was also featured on Boogaloo to McDuff, a tribute to Jack McDuff. See Jeremy perform for Safe Harbors of the Hudson’s Blues on Broadway series at the Ritz Theatre, 107 Broadway, Newburgh on August 17 at 7:00pm. For tickets: 845-784-1199.
Interactive Kids’ Concert in Newburgh Evan Gottfried has been making music since he was a kid growing up on Long Island. He and his younger brother, Adam, would perform epic rock concerts for their parents. For some reason their idea of a stage was a blanket hung up in front of them, so that they could only be seen from the waist up, as if they were puppets. Their biggest hit was Bad Little Girl Wouldn’t Drink Her Milk, which chronicled all the not-so-good things that happened to that girl as a result of her not drinking her milk. Nowadays Evan’s lyrics are generally more upbeat, though no less entertaining! Evan has been teaching students with
severe and multiple disabilities since 2004, and frequently uses music as a teaching tool. In 2010, finding himself with one very musical young daughter, he got the idea to make an album for kids. He turned the idea into a reality and recorded Reach Up! - an album with several awardwinning songs. Evan will perform at the Newburgh Free Library, 124 Grand Street, on August 4 at 1:00pm for Family Music Extravaganza: an interactive, joyous, high energy concert! Best for ages 2-10, but enjoyed by kids of all ages. To register, call 845-563-3600.
Nilko Andreas & LaMar are Back in Bethel Since his Carnegie Hall debut in 2009, Nilko Andreas has been captivating audiences in over fifteen countries and three continents as a soloist, composer and chamber musician performing on prestigious stages with major orchestras and conductors.

music, great time, guaranteed! Dancing is required - bon-fire!” LaMar is Andreas’ Spanish Rumba Flamenco side project. “La Mar” means the sea. LaMar consists of Nilko himself, bassist Matt Geraghty, and percussionist Reid Andres. The dance party, bon fire, and great time all happen on August 11, 8:00pm at Catskill Distilling Company, 2037 NY-17B, Bethel. For reservations: 845-583-3141.
Jamie McLean Performs in Marlboro Jamie McLean is a triple threat. As a guitarist for New Orleans royalty Aaron Neville and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, he has toured the globe playing fiery guitar everywhere from Madison Square Garden to Japan’s Fuji Rock. His blue-eyed southern soul vocals ooze raw emotion and his top line songwriting chops tie everything together. With hundreds of original compositions to his name, McLean creates a musical gumbo that
incorporates New Orleans soul, Delta blues, middle America roots and New York City swagger! The Jamie McLean Band is touring behind the release of a new album produced by Ken Coomer of Wilco and featuring Sam Bush and Jeff Coffin of the Dave Matthews Band. The Jamie McLean Band will perform at The Falcon, 1348 US-9W, Marlboro, on August 3 at 8:00pm. For information: 845-236-7970.

Wellness Modalities: CranioSacral Therapy by Derek Leet CranioSacral therapy (CST) was developed by John Upledger, D.O. in the 1970s as cranial osteopathy which was developed by William Garner Sutherland. Cranial osteopathy, a forerunner of CST, was originated by Sutherland (1873–1954) in 1898–1900. While looking at a disarticulated skull, he was struck by the idea that the cranial sutures of the temporal bones where they meet the parietal bones were “beveled, like the gills of a fish, indicating articular mobility for a respiratory mechanism.” According to the Upledger Institute, “CranioSacral therapy is a very gentle technique to help detect and correct imbalances that may cause sensory, motor or neurological dysfunction. The conditions that respond well to CranioSacral therapy include headaches, migraines, TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome), fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic neck and back pain, and motor coordination impairment. “Practitioners of both cranial osteopathy and CST assert that there are small, rhythmic motions of the cranial bones attributed to cerebrospinal fluid pressure or arterial pressure.
The premise of CST is that palpation of the cranium can be used to detect this rhythmic movement of the cranial bones and selective pressures may be used to manipulate the cranial bones to achieve a therapeutic result. The degree of mobility and compliance of the cranial bones is considered controversial and is an important concept in craniosacral therapy. “Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with. Fortunately, such restrictions can be detected and corrected using simple methods of touch.” Rock Tavern Innervision Wellness practitioner Debra Sheafe (see ad page 4) says, “I like to use Cranial Sacral combined with other modalities such as reflexolgy for TMJ, migraines, unwinding, and balancing out the body. I usually incorporate it into every session along with acupressure points...the body rhythm can always use balancing.”

Wallkill River School Celebrates the Hudson River School & Sam’s Point Preserve HUDSON RIVER SCHOOL SHOW The outdoor painting season is in full swing, and the Wallkill River School (WRS) is excited to show a collection of Hudson River School style paintings! For years, the WRS artists have been painting in farm fields, open spaces and historic sites throughout Orange County in an attempt to capture the beauty of our region. This outdoor painting practice was inspired by the first American art movement: the Hudson River School artists. The Hudson River School was a term coined in the early 1800s to describe the romantic and luminous landscape paintings of the newly discovered Americas. These paintings gave the world their first glimpse into the Americas, and have left a huge mark on the world of art. The paintings reflected three themes of 19th century America: discovery, exploration, and settlement. The paintings also depict the American landscape as a large, luminous setting where human beings and nature coexist peacefully. Hudson River School landscapes are characterized by their realistic, detailed, and sometimes idealized scenes of the new world, often showing peaceful farms alongside the remaining wilderness, which were quickly vanishing from the Hudson Valley as more

settlers came to the new world. For the WRS, an organization with deep connections to environmental sustainability and classical art, the Hudson River School naturally became a huge inspiration. This show will be juried by awardwinning oil painter Mike Jaroszko. A WRS represented artist, Jaroszko has always held high respect for the Hudson River School. With much of his work being done in the Hudson River School style, he was the perfect choice to jury this show! A Montgomery resident, Jaroszko was born in Canada, and studied art at the Canterbury College of Art in England. In terms of his fine art, he is inspired to portray the local hills and rivers with the nostalgic atmosphere of a Hudson River School artist.
With intense light and color, he conveys the tranquility and beauty of nature. This juried show of classical landscape works will be held in honor of the Hudson River School. The show, running the entire month of August, will hold an opening reception, complete with refreshments, on August 4 from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and honorable mentions will be given at the opening reception for this show.

Sarod & Tabla Indian Music in Hurleyville The sarod is a stringed instrument known for a deep, weighty, introspective sound, that gives it a resonant, reverberant quality. Along with the sitar, it is among the most popular and prominent instruments used mainly in Hindustani music. Sougata Roy Chowdhury is considered to be among the most talented sarod players of his generation. Born into an artistic Bengali family, Sougata grew up in Shanti Niketan, an arts colony in West Bengal, India. Sougata (pronounced Shoogato) has been thrilling audiences in India, Europe, and the U.S. for the last fifteen years. He has earned a sterling reputation as a master of Raga, the melodic system of Indian music, and Tala, the rhythmic aspect of Indian music. The tabla is a membranophone percussion instrument originating from India. A particularly important instrument in Hindustani classical music since the 18th century, the name tabla likely comes from tabl, the Persian and Arabic word for drum. Ray Spiegel began playing tabla at the age of thirteen after learning western music on clarinet and piano at the age of six. He studied under prominent tabla master
Shankar Ghosh when he was sixteen years old. Ray continued his studies in New Delhi, after touring major cities in India with the East-West Chamber Ensemble as a tabla player. After returning to the U.S., Ray continued his studies with the great maestro of tabla, Ustad Alla Rakha for 25 years. Ray has recorded numerous projects with his band, the Ray Spiegel Ensemble as well as recordings with the Grateful Dead, Patty Smythe, and Paul Winter among others. Ray also has recorded many Indian classical albums with various artists, and has done movie and television soundtracks in his storied career. Let the sarod and tabla serenade you when Sougata and Ray perform at the Hurleyville Arts Center, 12 Railroad Avenue, on August 19 at 4:00pm. Blankets and cushions will be provided for floor seating or reclining. Bring your own flap back chairs or cushions if you have them. Chairs will be provided for those who prefer.

Visually Reassessing A Matter of Course “VISUAL REASSESSMENTS”
“MATTER OF COURSE”
“Spaces Fill” diptych by S. Feliciano Solomon
After spending over 50 years as a photographer, Irenaeus Yurchuk has amassed thousands of images that have become the inspiration of his new mixed media work. “My work has evolved to combine multiple image photography with drawing and painting, using a variety of digital editing and physical montage techniques. This includes adjusting inkjet images by applying acrylics, watercolors, pastels, markers, colored pencils together with selected collage materials,” says Yurchuk. “I have a special interest in characterizing buildings, which reflects my background in architecture and urban design. Works in this show include images of distinctive edifices, abstractions of topographic components, and some observations of the natural environment in the Narrowsburg area, where I have spent more than 40 summers.”
How do we express the ephemeral and emotional through solid materials and physical matter? This is the question at the core of Sonjie Feliciano Solomon’s paintings and sculptures, which are created when fundamental materials meet calculated design techniques. Conceits such as sorrow, doubt, and passion are evoked through materials such as wood, water, fabric, and thread. “I am trying to shape my intangible emotional and intellectual experiences into material form, sometimes processing a life milestone such as the loss of a loved one or the calm after a crisis, sometimes simply seeking the feeling of peace that eternally just evades us,” Solomon says. “While these are imprints of my own personal experiences, they speak of the universal human condition to the viewer through a playful engagement and parry of material and meaning.” Both shows can be viewed at the Delaware Arts Center, 37 Main Street, Narrowsburg, through August 11.

Mokotoff Plucks at Pacem Classical guitarist and former Middletown resident Charles Mokotoff holds both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in guitar performance from Syracuse University and Ithaca College, respectively. He has served on the faculties of numerous colleges and universities in the New York and New England area as a lecturer in classical guitar and lute. Prior to settling in the Washington, DC area in 1991, Mokotoff made his home in New England where he was widely recognized as an active guitarist and Renaissance lute player during the 1980s. During that period his career culminated with two Far East tours and a well-received NYC debut in Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in 1987, featuring the premiere of Autumn Elegy by William Coble, written and dedicated to him. In May, 2009 he performed a solo concert for the Grand Montgomery Chamber Music Series and this is his first “reappearance” in the area since that full-house concert. Mokotoff has been hard of hearing for a good deal of his life and is an outspoken proponent of “making music with hearing loss”. He is a member of the Association of Adult Musicians with Hearing Loss. Growing up in Middletown, his mother, Gertrude Mokotoff, is a former mayor of the city. “I started like everyone else, playing
guitar in a rock band at around 13 or 14.” He began to experience hearing loss at 15, but says, “I just put some blinders on, and ignored the apparent futility of it and kept at it.” He kept playing right up through college and at 17 when he met someone playing classical guitar, it changed his whole focus. “I was totally awed by it. I picked up a classical guitar somewhere, and just kept on plugging,” said Charles. “One of the good things about getting older is the ability to interpret music naturally.” Mokotoff also serves on the board of Chester-based Music for Humanity and is essential to the yearly selecting of the group’s scholarship winners. Get strung up on Mokotoff when he strums, plucks and entertains at Pacem in Terris, 96 Covered Bridge Road, Warwick, on August 26 at 5:00pm. Arrive early and visit the museum.

Cows to Cadenzas & Appalachia Kindred Spirits Arts Programs presents interesting concert offerings for August: A soprano who sings of her journey from cattle shows in rural Oregon to international stages, and Appalachian, American Indian, Cajun and other music performed by widely known folk musicians on original instruments. A Voice in the Forest “Having grown up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, conservation and the rightful management of forests pulses in my veins as much as any aria I’ve ever sung. I wouldn’t be the artist I am today without the lessons I’ve learned from the forest’s understory. I have incorporated so many of the principles that apply to sustained yield forestry management into my professional and personal life. The trees are as much a part of me as is my gift of singing,” states soprano Linda Lane Smith. This opera diva will connect music and forest, art and science in her unique program, From Cows to Cadenzas at Hotel Fauchere, 401 Broad Street, Milford on August 2 at 7:00pm. The concert will include the music of Schubert, Verdi, Brahms, Wolf, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and a slide show. Piano
accompaniment by Robert Wilson. What could be more appropriate for Milford, where the whole idea for a U.S. Forestry Service began with Gifford Pinchot? Two Women Play Twelve Instruments Combining tradition with innovation, the award-winning Simple Gifts Duo creates some of the finest arrangements in folk music today: swing fiddle creeps into a Romanian dance, spoons show up in an Irish reel, and a blues lick introduces a Klezmer melody. Based in the hills of central Pennsylvania, these women play an amazing array of instruments. Linda Littleton and Karen Hirshon switch with ease among fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, guitjo, recorders, bowed psaltery, hammered dulcimer, baritone fiddle and percussion. Head to Grey Towers in Milford to see Simple Gifts Duo perform in An Appalachian Ballade on August 18 at 5:30pm. Visit www.kindredspiritsarts.org or call 570-409-1269 for tickets.

May I Have A Word With You ... Quips, Quotes & Quiddities with Carol Pozefsky ALL ALONE Unlike collaborators Lennon and McCartney, Lerner and Loewe, and Rogers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin wrote both the words AND the music for the countless songs he created. But, in 1871, seventeen years before Berlin was even born, a song writer with the inspired name of William Shakespeare Hays was churning out chart topping hits and, like Berlin, wrote both the words AND the music. Hays had no fewer than 3 titles on this list of 1871’s top ten hit songs: Beware Goodbye Liza Jane The Little Old Log Cabin in the Lane (Hays) Mollie Darling (Hays) Onward Christian Soldiers Reuben and Rachel The Sea Hath Its Pearls Silent Night, Holy Night Something for Jesus Susan Jane (Hays) BURYING THE LEAD Chicago’s newly renovated Crosby Opera House was one of 17,000+ buildings destroyed by what’s remembered to this day as
The Great Chicago Fire. The fire began on the evening of October 8, 1871, when, according to legend, Mrs. O’Leary’s cow kicked over a lighted lantern in a barn on DeKoven Street. What’s little known is that the deadliest wildfire in American history occurred that same day in and around Peshtigo, Wisconsin killing 1200 people including every resident of the village of Sugar Bush and 200 people in a single tavern. ON A HAPPIER NOTE
That same month and year, The Jubilee Singers, a choral group of 12 students of color from Fisk University set off on a concert tour to raise money for their Nashville, Tennessee school. Performing gospel and popular songs, the group toured the eastern U.S. continuing on to England, Scotland and Ireland. By 1874, they had managed to raise $90,000 which, factoring in inflation rates, would be worth more than 2 million U.S. dollars today.
