Publisher’s Column by Barry Plaxen Kudos to Shadowland Theatre. Since 1995, theatre-goers have been enjoying summer season offerings of plays presented by this area’s finest Actor’s Equity company at the theatre in Ellenvile. Just recently, Artistic Director Brendan Burke annouced that a number of fund raisers will be held throughout the fall, winter and spring seasons in the heated theatre lobby to raise funds for winterizing the entire art deco building on Canal Street. Congratulations to Shadlowland. We look forward to year-round, high level, fully professional theatre of this calibre in our region. Kudos to Weekend of Chamber Music and Shandelee Music Festival. As part of these two Sullivan County ongoing chamber music groups’ missions to bring classical music into the schools,

Weekend of Chamber Music offered a public concert in the Livingston Manor Central School under the Jean-Julien Dultil murals in the lobby and at the Catskill Art Society on October 16. A second concert will be held in both places on November 6. (See below) For Shandelee, pianist Allan Yueh gave an inspiring recital at Monticello High School on October 22. Yuen played Chopin and Schumann for the students and an admiring public. All were bowled over by his performance. Chopin’s Sonata # 2 has a famous “funeral march” movement and in its middle section, Yueh seemed to hardly touch the keys as he brought forth some of the most mesmerizing, delicate pianissimo music I have ever heard live. His is a great talent and hopefully he will come back and perform at a future date.

World Class Chamber Music continues......

Blair String Quartet

WCM Baritone, Anthony Turner

Music from Europe The Blair String Quartet presents works by three of the greatest composers of string quartets for Newburgh Chamber Music on November 7 at 3:00pm in St. George’s Church, 105 Grand Street, Newburgh, across the street from the library parking lot. Music of Haydn, Bartok and Schubert will be featured. Joseph Haydn composed the Quartet in G Major, Op. 54, No.1 in 1788 and it is the first of two sets of works dedicated to violinist, Johann Tost. Bela Bartok composed his Fourth String Quartet in 1928. It is a stunning example of Bartok’s synthesis of the elements of Hungarian folk music and art music of the highest rank. This five-movement work is constructed in an arch form with rhapsodic music evocative of the sounds of nature. The program closes with Franz Schubert’s masterpiece, his Quartet in D Minor composed in 1824 and subtitled Death and the Maiden. The Blair String Quartet is Christian Teal, violin; Cornelia Heard, violin; John Kochanowski, viola; Felix Wang, cello. Call 845-562-1861 for reservations.

(WCM) has added Music in America: 1780 to 2010 in conjunction with the exhibit. WCM presented the first of two ‘moveable concerts’ on October 16 and a second follows on November 6 at 3:00pm, aptly beginning under the Zuber panels in the school lobby, and then moving to the nearby CAS, surrounded by the new works at the gallery. On November 6, WCM takes its lead from the Zuber panels’ portrayal of free African Americans in elegant attire engaged in middle-class activities and from Lucie Dillon’s Memoirs of Madame de La Tour du Pin. The early music portion includes works by the Chevalier St. George, Ignatius Sancho and Francis Johnson of Philadelphia, all successfully working black musicians of the time. The second half of the program includes a second performance of Andrew Waggoner’s 5 Singles, music by William Grant Still, an improvisation and a selection of Spirituals. Baritone Anthony Turner joins the October 16 musicians, flutist Judith Pearce, violinist Sunghae Anna Lim, oboist Matt Sullivan, cellist Caroline Stinson and harpsichordist Kenneth Hamrick All seating is first come, first served. Admission donations for the concerts are appreciated, and will help defray the musicians’ fees. For more concert information, visit WCM at WCMconcerts.org For more exhibition information, visit CAS at catskillartsociety.org, or call 845-436-4227.

“Music in America: 1780 to 2010” The Catskill Art Society’s (CAS) open call exhibition, Utopia: the Real and the Ideal in the Pursuit of Social Democracy is now on display. Works by 13 contemporary artists were chosen for the exhibition in response to the Zuber panels in the Livingston Manor Central School Taking inspiration from the historic panels, Weekend of Chamber Music 2

Destination: Pine

Bush......... Nov 13 Autumn Art Tour

Connecting local artists with local business Pine Bush is a hamlet in the Town of Crawford, Orange County, whose ZIP code spills over into adjacent regions of the Town of Shawangunk in Ulster County and Mamakating in Sullivan County as well. The community was one of the four early nineteenth century settlements in the town. It has previously been known as "Shawangunk," "Crawford," and "Bloomfield." Currently, there is another community called "Crawford," located to the northwest in bordering Ulster County.

Nestled along the banks of the Shawangunk Kill in the shadow of the beautiful Shawangunk Ridge, the Pine Bush area was first settled as early as 1740. Today, Pine Bush still offers a diverse and exciting array of shops, restaurants and services. On Saturday, November 13th, the Pine Bush Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting an Art Tour, coinciding with the AIDS Walk, along Main Street. The Art Tour runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm to showcase the “Artist and the Art”!

Nov 13 Chalk Walk The November 13 ChalkWalk benefits ARCS, the area’s: AIDS-Related Community Services. The public is invited to “claim your square of Pine Bush sidewalk and express your personal HIV/AIDS awareness message - or any artwork you like!” For A $5 donation to ARCS at participating Chamber of Commerce businesses, you’ll receive a free box of sidewalk chalk. You can start your creation as early as 9:00am in your choice of location along Main Street for all the Art Tour patrons to see!! Visit www.arcs.org/chalkwalk.

Destination From Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center to the Grand Montgomery Chamber Music Series! : Jenny Lin, piano virtuoso by Philip Ehrensaft To be a standout young virtuoso in the musical capital of New York City, which attracts candidates from across the world to be identified as such by demanding music critics, is no mean task. But Jenny Lin has indeed done this in remarkably short order: whether it's having the Wall St. Journal's music critic review her 2009 double CD of Shostakovich's daunting 24 Preludes and Fugues as the definitive recording of this work, including the legendarily virtuoistic composer's own recording; and having the Washington Post list the album as one of the top 10 classical recordings of the year --- following their rave review of her concert at the Kennedy Center; or the New York Times giving rave reviews to both her debut performance playing a Beethoven concerto at Carnegie Hall and being the standout performer at the new experimental music darling in Downtown New York, Le Poisson Rouge. An exceptional opportunity for music lovers in the Mid-Hudson Valley to hear Ms. Lin perform on our home grounds, and with complimentary tickets, no less, presents

Delaware & Hudson CANVAS

itself at the wonderful Grand Montgomery Chamber Music Series on the afternoon of November 21st at 3:00pm. Lin will perform Bach, Chopin, and selections from her landmark 24 Preludes and Fugues album. When Lin's parents became aware of her musical talents, she was taken first from her native Taiwan to Vienna for top-level training, to Switzerland, and then to Johns Hopkins Peabody School of Music in Baltimore. She ultimately tried New York and quickly became a total New Yorker. Lin alternates between teaching at the music school attached to the prestigious chamber music venue of the 92nd St. Y; being a central figure in the Downtown experimental music scene, and touring across the world. She will return directly from a 5-city tour in China (and that's afer a brief respite from performing in England), unpack, and head off to Montgomery. One exceptional dimension of Lin's virtuosity is its historic depth. It could be 18th, 19th, or 21st century music: Lin's knowledge of the musical sructures and intentions in each period, and how to get that knowledge from your brain to your fingers, is evident. I think there are overtones of Glenn Gould here: probably nobody played modernist piano better at the time – because nobody played Bach better.

November 2010

At Mongomery, Lin will also premier a solo piano work commissioned by the noted composer Laura Kaminsky, Fantasy for Piano. Kaminsky teaches music at SUNYPurchase, the SUNY campus noted for its performing arts programs; and is also the artistic director of Musicians Accord, the City University ensemble focusing on contemporary composers. Kaminsky likes

to surprise and extend our ears by integrating --- not cutting and pasting, but integrating – musical elements that for one reason or another we have been taught not to think of as worthy of being labeled classical. Check out the shops advertised here prior to the concert and have a lunch at either the Ward’s Bridge Inn, Tarantella’s Pizza Alley, or the Montgomery Village Luncheonette. For concert info: 845-457-9867.

Montgomery!

Arts & Crafts in the Montgomery Galleries by Naomi Kennedy

Janet Di Bello, also known as "Gramma Janet", creates beautiful innovative dolls of heirloom quality in her Montgomery home. She is represented by Di Bello's Frame Shop & Gallery also located in Montgomery. Her husband Joe, a creative artist, is the owner of the gallery. When Janet was 13 years old, she took knitting lessons from a staff member of the

Four H program. However, her talent was evident at an earlier age. "I was always creative and tried to knit and sew as I was growing up" said Di Bello. Her grandmother "Tooty", designed clothing and scenery for Broadway plays in New York City and also made dolls. Tooty made the first bride doll and first nun doll. Janet taught English at Valley Central High School in Montgomery, where she met Joe, the school Principal at the time. Janet encouraged her students to express their ideas

creatively by writing. She was determined to help them achieve this vision. They eventually called her "Creativity" which also became her yearbook name after she retired. Janet's hand knitted dolls made of yarn have an old-fashioned flair. They take five to ten days to complete. Recently she started creating male "carpenter" and "painter" dolls. Her clientele are usually parents with young children. She is inspired through "experimentation and innovative ideas" as she changes the patterns of the dolls each time to see what develops. The name of her business, Gramma Janet's, was a foregone conclusion. Jokingly, Janet told me she is the grandmother of "at least 12 grandchildren." "I taught my eight year old granddaughter to knit," she said. "She

now calls me knit-wit!" This same granddaughter suggested that Janet make dolls with "brown faces, because the kids at school have not only white, but also brown faces." There are now beautiful dolls with both color faces available for sale at Di Bello's Gallery. Every year Janet donates at least one doll for special occasions. Several times she donated dolls to the Montgomery Free Library, where they were raffled off, and monies were raised. Janet welcomes requests, suggestions, and ideas for making new dolls. She is always pleased to accommodate a client. Call Di Bello Gallery for information, 845457-2773

For the Opera Company of the Highlands’ (OCH) third Autumn fundraising event, artistic director Claudia Cummings and the OCH Board of Directors have chosen the theatre music of composer Leonard Bernstein. Just before Thanksgiving, on November 21 at 3:00pm in the Union Presbyterian Church, 44 Balmville Road, the singers will gather together to praise the blessings of Bernstein’s wondrously lyrical, comedic and dramatic music from On The Town, Candide, West Side Story, et al.

Bernstein was disappointed throughout his life that his theatre music was more revered than his c l a s s i c a l

compositions. As the years have progressed, his theatre music has been performed even more than before and very often by the world’s major symphony orchestras. For reservations: 845-496-9626

Sullivan Beading

Beads have been significant in many cultures since the beginning of history. They have been used as amulets to bring wisdom and fortune. Beads can be made from claws, clay pebbles, shells, teeth and glass. Thousands of years ago, ancient tribes of humans strung hollow animal bones on a fiber. It is believed that wearing the bones of the animal would either protect them from that animal or fill them with the animal's spirit, making them a less fragile human. Acoording to Michelle McKenzie (www.mckenzieglassworks.com) there is an interesting symbiology behind the spirals, circles, eyes, and dots in addition to the various colors. We are now experiencing a crossover of ideas like never before in the bead community. Bead and fiber artists are sharing information and working together much like the Impressionists did in the past. Fiber artists are adding beads to their work and beaders are adding fiber to their beading bringing their mediums closer together. Instead of griping that you have nothing to do, learn to crimp! You can buy beads and candles, learn to bead and learn about fibers. And there’s something for most everyone: make your own Rosary Beads or see the Judaica articles at Miskris Beads in South Fallsburg and Needlepoint Gallery in Woodridge.

Holiday Gift Shopping............ Fiber Included in Liberty Gallery

There’s more than food, drink and paintings at the Catskill Artists Gallery’s (CAG) November 27 reception for its annual Holiday Show from 4:00pm to 8:00pm..There’s pottery, sculpture, prints, photographs, woodcraft, glass, all kinds of jewelry, note cards, books, fiber, and more And speaking of fiber, there will be a very special guest appearance by the Woodland Weavers' and Spinners' Guild members, who will be showing and selling their handwoven work, both useful and decorative. Some items will also be of handspun yarns. This guild has been growing and thriving for almost 35 years, and its members run the gamut from total beginners to acclaimed experts. Through demonstrations, workshops and word of mouth, more and more people are attracted to the vibrant field of handweaving and spinning. For centuries weaving has been the way to produce clothes. In some cultures, weaving forms demonstrated social status. The more intricate the weaving, the higher the status. Certain symbols and colors also allowed identification of class and position. For example, in the ancient Incan

civilization, black and white designs indicated a military status In Europe between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries woven pieces called "tapestries" took the place of paintings on walls. Much of the art at this time in history was used to tell common folktales that also had a religious theme. At the same time period in the Middle East, fiber artists did not make tapestry or wall hanging weavings, but instead created beautifully crafted rugs. The woven rugs did not depict scenes in a story, but instead used symbols and complex designs. The CAG show will run into midJanuary. “It's a wonderful opportunity for people to buy unique gifts for everyone on their shopping list -- including themselves!”, said CAG member, Buff McAllister. The gallery has 6 members (Robert Friedman, Cate Gundlah, Kathy Jeffers, Buff McAllister, Helena Clare Pittman, and Hank Schneider) and some 30 consignors. Hours are Friday and Saturday 11-6 and Sunday 12-5, 38 S. Main Street in Liberty. 845-292-0310

New York Swing Exchange Beverly Poyerd New York Voices

by Philip Ehrensaft Top-notch jazz musicians will stage a festival at Orange County Community College (OCCC) on November 19 and 20th to jointly celebrate the school's 60th anniversary, and to honor the memory of the founder of OCCC's fine music department, Dr. Marvin K. Feman. His daughter Holly Harris Feman will emcee the Festival. The Two Days of Jazz Festival is spearheaded by Dorothy Szefc, the Cultural Affairs director who makes those good art shows happen at OCCC's gallery, and Chris Parker, a professor of music at OCCC by day, and nationally noted jazz pianist during the kind of hours when jazz musicians do their thing. Back when Feman was building up the foundations for making the music department what it is today, he encountered an up-and-coming young jazz pianist --who was also a trained classical composer

An Operatic Romp in Loch Sheldrake

Live from the Met in HD’s next live showing at Sullivan County Community College is on November 13 at 1:00pm when Anna Netrebko revives her sensational turn in this sophisticated bel canto comedy, opposite Matthew Polenzani. John Del Carlo has the title role. James Levine conducts. For tickets: 845-434-5750, ext. 4472.

Robert Kopec

as well --- who was on a visit from his home town in Oregon. Feman convinced the young Chris Parker to give the Hudson Valley, and OCCC, a try. Parker started in 1983, and became part of the migration of a big chunk of America's jazz talent into the Hudson Valley. For jazz musicians, the combination of the Valley's quality of life, and close proximity to the world capital of jazz, New York City, is unbeatable. The wisdom of Feman's read of how Parker was going to develop as a musician was to be confirmed by things like this: Scott Yannow, the chief editor and also piano jazz specialist for the All Music Guide to Jazz, a key international reference point for reviewing jazz recordings, gave a coveted 4-star rating to Parker's 2003 release, Late in Lisbon. A 4-star rating from Yannow just doesn't happen very often. Parker has modestly not inserted himself into the line-up for the big jazz celebration at OCCC this month. Hopefully the audience and the invited bands will not permit that to happen, and will draft Parker onto the bandstand. Szefc's involvement in this festival honorirng Feman's work in founding OCCC's is very personal: as a teenager, she

describes herself as having had the good luck to live across the street in Middletown from the Feman residence --- and to have a generous neighbor who encouraged her curiosity about music. And also to have the good fortune of having a father who was instrumental in organizing Middletown's classical music concerts held in the acoustically excellent auditorium of what is now Middletown's Twin Towers Middle School, but then a high school. Invited orchestras included those of Cleveland and Buffalo. Just try and imagine, alas, many people's candidate for the USA’s best orchestra --- the Cleveland Symphony --coming to Middletown to play in that auditorium in 2010. The net result of all of that Szefc is well known for organizing visual arts projects, but has a deep and abiding commitment to music, and is delighted to work with Chris Parker to make Two Days of Jazz happen. Two Days of Jazz presents an exceptional musical opportunity on two counts: first, class act Big Apple bands like the Bronx Horns, an ensemble of front-rank Latin Jazz players led by Mitch Frohman, the lead sax

harpist --- Edmar Castenada. The full schedule of master classes during the day through the big Friday and Saturday night concerts can be found at the college web site, www.sunyorange.edu. Brief details for the performances in Orange Hall Theater and the Master Class can be found in the Music-Jazz and Master Class calendars on page 7. Second, OCCC is making this event available to the community at bargain prices: the full price is only $20 per day, or $35 for the whole two days - less than you'd pay in a New York City club to catch one of the big acts. Daily seniors rates ($15) and student rates ($5) apply Those are nice, generous prices for the Great Recession. For addtional info: phone 845-341-4891.

Beethoven in Newburgh & Cornwall-on-Hudson Newburgh Each year Prince Esterházy II commissioned a new mass setting to be sung at his residence. In 1807, the commission fell to Beethoven, whose fame, already firmly established in Vienna, had begun to spread throughout Europe. The Mass in C Major was first performed on September 13, 1807, under the composer's direction. While Beethoven seems to have been quite pleased with the work, his first effort in the genre, Prince Esterházy was not, describing it as "unbearably ridiculous and detestable." The composer was undeterred, however, and the mass received a more positive response after an 1812 performance. That Beethoven wished to set the mass text in a manner in which it has rarely been treated is evident right from the opening of the Kyrie, which begins with unaccompanied bass voices. A passage in the Sanctus, scored for voices and tympani only, must have been equally startling to contemporary audiences. The Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra, Dr. Woomyung Choe conductor, is offering the Mass with the voices of the USMA Cadet Glee Club, SUNY New Paltz Choir, Vassar College Chorus and Capella Festiva Chamber Choir at the Newburgh Free Academy, 201 Fullerton Avenue, on November 6 at 8:00pm. Soloists are Christien Howlett, Eunjoo Lee, Matthew Pena and Goonshik Yang. A pre-concert talk by area musicologist Gordon Shacklett will be held at 7:00pm. Phone: 845-913-7157 for tickets.
