Letters to the Editor

HORSEBACK RIDING

This letter was received at the same time we were working on our first Destination: Livingston Manor page (see page 11). We thought it was a good example of synchronicity, so we decided to print it. May 2011 Dear Editor: My parents bought a bungalow colony in Sullivan County when my brother, sister and I were young. Both parents were teachers, and so they had summer vacations every year. I have memories of blueberry picking, hiking, swimming, and campfires. After having spent 13 summers in the Catskill Mountains, I have returned to the Catskills, specifically to Livingston Manor. For years I have been dreaming of returning to the area that I love, and of fulfilling another dream of mine, a dream of opening a shop. I love interior design. I'm a graduate of Sheffield School of Design. The location of my shop will be 675 Old Route 17. It will be stocked with antiques, painting and prints, linens, and anything that I have found that is interesting and unique. My goal is to open this summer.....Keep you posted! By the way, the shop will be called The Harlequin Set- more on that later. Hope to see you soon!

Phil Sigunick has curated the Red Eft Gallery exhibitions since 2008 and has brought world class artists and their works to the gallery with passion and panache.

Reprising LIVE in Newburgh and Loch Sheldrake by Derek Leet

John Rutter

The choral music of John Rutter is very popular, particularly in the US. NBC's Today Show called him the world's greatest living composer and conductor of choral music. The London Evening Standard has said, "For the infectiousness of his melodic invention and consummate craftsmanship, Rutter has few peers." Rutter's music is eclectic, showing the influences of the French and English choral traditions of the early 20th century, as well as of light music and American classic song writing. Despite composing and conducting much religious music, Rutter has said that he was not particularly a religious man, yet still deeply spiritual and inspired by the spirituality of sacred verses and prayers. In a 2009 interview, Rutter discussed his understanding of "genius" and its unique

ability to transform lives - whether that genius is communicated in the form of music or other mediums. He likened the purity of music to that of mathematics, and even connected the two with a reference to the discoveries of the early Greeks that frequencies of harmonic pitches are related by whole-number ratios. Music Director Janiece Kohler has chosen music by Rutter for the Classic Choral Society’s Spring Concerts in Blooming Grove and Goshen. The concerts are free, donations appreciated. See calendar (page 20) for locations and times. 845-928-6462.

Newburgh As we know, in this day and age “live”, when referring to opera and other performances, can mean “a live performance shown on video. This month, our opera news column has two exciting announcements. First is the long awaited showing of Claudia Cumming’s 1983 performance of Donizetti’s Lucia Di Lammermoor as a benefit for Opera Company of the Highlands’ planned summer production of Donizetti’s L’elisir d’Amore. Many fans have seen Cummings perform in area musical and opera concerts but have never seen her in a leading role in a fully mounted opera. Now is our chance. She has arranged for two showings of scenes culled from a live televised performance at the Downing Film Center in Newburgh on June 13, 5:30pm and 7:00pm, with an ice cream social in between the showings. This benefit promises to be an exciting event. Don’t miss it. Reservations are a necessity. 845-565-4148.

“The image of this puppet child, with his fixed stare and need to know, will stay with me.” Anthony Tommasini, NY Times. “The image of the puppet, with his hollowed eyes and ability to project facial changes, will remain with me forever.” Chris Farlekas, Times Herald Record. “The puppet, with “his” ability to express emotions, was theatrical magic and one of the greatest thrills of my life.” Barry Plaxen, Domenico Dragonetti Discovered Down in the Depths D&H CANVAS. visit and disconnect from daily life.

Meet Our Advertisers The Art of Typography.......................................... by J. A. Di Bello "What is Typography?" Read on! Little did an enthusiastic John Ciardullo suspect in 1971 when he packed up his family and left his familiar Flatbush community in the Borough of Brooklyn for an idyllic location on the banks of the Wallkill River in Walden, that his learned trade (as type-setting printer) would undergo monumental and revolutionary transformations. John, a graduate of the New York School of Printing and a person with strong sense of family and its importance, was able to purchase the Kniffin - Zupp Printing Co. in 1975. From that point in time, Ciardullo Printing became one of the many stellar family businesses that continue to be a mark of distinction in this village on the Wallkill. As family traditions would have it, a young Michael Ciardullo worked at his dad's side learning the mechanics of printing first hand. He graduated from Valley Central High School, Montgomery, and as one might suspect, studied multiple aspects of the printing trade at BOCES in Goshen. As it is now and always will be, time takes its toll, and in 1992 Michael and his wife Darlene began running the business as the retired John became a frequent visitor, and as in the form of the classic role reversal, a helper to his son Michael and the

expanding Ciardullo Printing business. However, as noted, time remains an unrelenting change agent and the current printing business is but a faint echo of the trade and skills John Ciardullo brought with him to Walden from his native Brooklyn. Incidentally, the office and shop remain at 92-94 West Main St., where occupying a significant amount of floor space remains an original Heidelberg printing machine, an historic tribute to a memorable past. Fortunately, Mike and Darlene's skills are as diverse as bread and butter, but so complementary. They work together very, very well. Michael's historical appreciation and knowledge of the mechanics of printing, from lead letter presses, off-set printing with film negatives, to his current involvement with digital graphics, are indispensible and totally dependent on Darlene's expertise as a typographer/graphic designer.

While discussing a specific printing job, Darlene is quick to demonstrate the advantages of using Arial typeface as opposed to Times New Roman or Helvetica, especially when inversions are ordered. For it is she who must select typefaces, fonts, point sizes, the length of lines, spacing and more. “What has happened to Typography since 1975?” Read on! In today's shifting digital landscape the selection of the various graphic symbols and combinations has become a complex sea of artistic representations. It is not uncommon for a relatively inexpensive graphics program to contain in excess of 300,000 images. Collectively manipulating these factors to produce a readable, legible and attractive publication for audiences seeking media rich experiences is the art of typography.

The 124th New York State Volunteers, the famed “Orange Blossoms,” is an historic regiment recruited in Orange County in the summer of 1862 that Pine Bush High School students have been studying with Charles La Rocca over the years. La Rocca will speak about his book Letters Home at the Josephine-Louise Library on June 30 at 7:00pm. Admission is free. Phone: 845-778-7621.

by J. A. Di Bello Appropriately, the Village of Walden is placing an additional spark on what is arguably referred to as the world's oldest profession: Farming. The new expanded farmers' market will open in the village square at noon, Thursday June 9th. In order to present a seriously relevant experience, a very energetic and capable Stephanie Faso, administrative aide in the Village, has diligently promoted the buy local, eat healthy theme. Reminiscent of plow-to-plate movements, the Walden Farmers' Market will have more vendors, longer hours and a longer season than in the past. There will be, of course, free parking and the added attraction of live music provided by Donna Hall of the NY School of Music. A cooking demonstration by the noted John Moultrie will be provided by the Josephine-Louise Public Library which will also conduct book sales.

The Historical Society of Walden and the Wallkill Valley

Jacob Walden House

The Walden Historical Society is a nonprofit organization composed of members dedicated to preserving the history of Walden and the Wallkill Valley. It is blessed by active, knowledgeable members who strive to preserve the time-worn phrase, "Many hands make light work." For purposes related to the journalistic euphemism "Space," this article is a modified facsimile, or lifted replica of information, presented on the Society's website, which incidentally is linked to a wealth of historically pertinent information. Also, it is a website that is kept current. This is no trifle and Gail Yeaple may claim the fame. The Walden House, built in 1768, is now the home of the Historical Society. It stands as a textbook example of Hudson Valley

Dutch Colonial architecture. With walls two feet and more thick, it is constructed of local shale and cut stone. The property was originally part of a 1,000 acre land grant, known to be a part of the Gatehouse patent. "Jacob Treadwell Walden bought the house in 1813 from Alexander Kidd when he (Jacob) came to the village (when it was called Kidd Town) to build textile mills powered by the Wallkill River and Falls. The Walden House is located on North Montgomery Street, out of view but well within earshot of the raging "High Falls." The village was officially renamed for him in 1855.” (From the website.) Fortunately, the Society, as owners of Walden House, is able to devote its energies and expertise to the preservation of such a valuable property. The organizational skills of President: Barbara Imbasciani, Vice President: Anita Vandermark, Secretary: Nancy Ohlmer, Treasurer: Patricia Eisley and the Society's devoted membership weave the vital and enduring fabric of the Historical Society of Walden and the Wallkill Valley. Its history and contributions to the Valley perk the inquisitive mind. Ergo, there's more; stay tuned.

It was the knife, ultimately, that captured her imagination and stimulated her creativity. The blade of her knife is courageously distanced from brush-on-canvas techniques. Various layers blending with each other to create unique color schemes, while texture by the knife presents a third dimension. The possibilities of the pallet knife techniques are limitless, especially when forms and curves of the human figure are explored on canvas. "Unique" is an understatement. Additional information regarding the July show and Catherine Hagerty can be obtained from the Gallery at 845-457-2773.

“Il Beso” by Catharine Hagerty

Catherine Hagerty is a creative, inspiring local artist who resides just outside of Walden. Her medium: Oil on canvas. Her technique: Application with a pallet knife. Her work, accompanied by other talented, motivated artists from the Di Bello Gallery in Montgomery, will be on display and offered for sale at the Noble Coffee Roasters Café, Rt. 207, Campbell Hall, during the month of July. Catherine's portion of the much anticipated art show, Pallets Along the Wallkill, is labeled "Neo-Expressionism at the Point of a Pallet Knife," an accurate description for a passionate display of oil on canvas.

Liberty Free Theatre Extends O’Neill’s “Hughie” Norman Duttweiler

Norman Duttweiler's formative years were consumed by Buffalo, New York, where the snow doesn't fall but is propelled horizontally as it defiantly accumulates on coarse and battered brick walls. He remains a noted product of a strict Jesuit education (redundancy is for emphasis), a 1973 graduate of Fordham University with a major in theatre arts. After experiencing theatre as an actor and stage manager, Norman rounded off his formal training by earning an MBA in Information Technology Management from NYU and labored in that endeavor for the better part of a decade. Theatre beckoned and Norman heeded her call, purchasing the existing theatre in Forestburgh in 1991. The training, culturing and experiential episodes have produced the contemporary, multi-tasking man Forestburgh attendees know as Norman Duttweiler. As the curtain rises on this summer's theatre season, aficionados will celebrate Norman's 20 consecutive years as producer/ managing director of the Forestburgh Playhouse and the sixty-five years of the playhouse's existence. As frequently happens, circumstances surrounding those who choose theatre and the performing arts as a vocation acquire that inspirational spark from an identifiable event. Happenstance? Perhaps. For Norman, inspiration was his fortunate exposure to the Buffalo Philharmonic's performance of Wagner's Tannhäuser Overture while in the sixth grade. No incident could have made a greater impression on the sponge-like mind of a pre-adolescent. Classical schools of music, some note, frequently use the Tannhäuser Overture to teach the fundamental aspects of the opera. With the Rubicon crossed, the rest is history, as Norman applied his talents to the NY theatre scene and to summer theatre in

the Catskills. Breathing life into dramatic and musical theatre classics requires not only the eye and judgment of a discriminating artist, but the ability to identify the practical, e.g., the existence of a causal relationship between the number of intermissions and the integrity of the septic system. "I think in detail, absolute detail." Norman exclaimed. Theatre operates "out of the box office" as Norman notes, and the Forestburgh Playhouse is no exception. This simple statement is perhaps one of the most complex issues confronting theatre. Theatre here refers to live performance, containing the classic elements of drama as it (theatre) appeals to a variety of audiences that are willing to pay the price of admission. What motivates individuals to the box office is a factor of socio-economic issues that emphatically includes age. The secret of attracting and retaining a "replacement audience" remains a yet-to-be-solved conundrum. A younger audience in theatre terms is those forty-something individuals who find relevancy in productions such as Rent, while Norman realizes the more mature audience will consider it a "turnoff." As might be expected, Norman has discovered an applicable generalization and partial solution to the conundrum: The production of stunning, riveting theatre by professionals who know and practice their craft - Attracts!

June 2011

Due to audience demand, The Liberty Free Theatre will extend the run of Nobel Laureate Eugene O’Neill’s play, Hughie, for an additional four performances. Hughie tells the story of a lonely smalltime gambler and his touching, revealing and often humorous attempts to hold on to

his life-long delusion of a happy-go-lucky winner.) The play features Michael Frizalone and James Heisel. It was directed by Chet Carlin. Performances will now run through Sunday, June 5 Admission is free. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended.

Newburgh Free Academy Where Art and Science Meet

Christopher W. Eachus, Orange County Legislator and physics educator, mentors Newburgh Free Academy (NFA) students with their creation of solar cars. The present NFA students recently returned from Houston, Texas, where they raced in the Shell Eco-Marathon and placed

third in the solar division. "We all had a great time and worked really hard. Not only did we wake up early, we stayed late to work on both J-Bird and EV Solar as much as we could. Although we didn't take home the gold, we plan to participate next year with a brand new vehicle," their blog entry of May 24 says. The NFA students create their solar car using various skills besides physics, including design and drafting. Maybe they can create Newburgh Solar Cars for us all to own so that we can help "save the planet" Kudos to all.

Shadowland - The Good News & the World Premiere

Destination.... mamakating Phillipsport History Tour

CC Lovehart and John Simon

“Thanks to the strong, continuing support of our expanding and intensely loyal audience base, we’re surviving the effects of the recession. And with this summer’s outrageous gas prices looming, why drive to New York City to enjoy great theater when there’s a truly affordable, high quality option nearby, right here in the Hudson Valley,” said Brendan Burke, producing artistic director, now in his seventh year at the Shadowland Theatre. The Good News “We’ll also be announcing our new fall / winter season program this summer, a first for the Shadowland,” he happily states. The World Premiere The first play of the season, The Seafarer by Conor McPherson; directed by Burke, opens June 5 and will be followed by Shadowland's first World Premiere: Jackass Flats by CC Loveheart and John Simon; also directed by Brendan Burke, from June 24 thru July 10.

Jackass Flats was developed at Shadowland, originating as a reading in the theater’s 2009 Ulster County Playwriting Festival. “I came about with the piece,” CC states. “As an actor and writer, I have written many one-woman shows for myself which I have performed in the last 15 to 20 years, so writing is not new for me.” Simon is a well known jazz musician and has performed often next door to Shadowland at Aroma Thyme Bistro. Though music is his profession, he has written with CC before. “We wrote cabaret

shows in NY, California and Florida. The creative gene exists in all people. Woody Allen plays the clarinet. Tony Bennett paints,” were only two of his many examples of multiple-genre creators. Jackass Flats originally was a vehicle for CC. She worked on it in NYC at the Actors Studio, encouraged there by playwrights Arthur Penn and William Goldman and morphed it into a two-character play. Now in its final version it has three characters. “We started together - sort of a mutual finagle of collaborating,” CC said. “I love the collaboration process and who better to collaborate with than the guy I live with.” “CC would read it to me,” John added, “and I would comment and make notes, and and that led to my becoming her amanuensis. CC and I spend our lives breaking each other up and so there’s a lot of comedy. Also pathos. “The play is based on CC’s stories about growing up in Las Vegas. It takes place in 1952, is a comedy with dramatic overtones, has a lot of music too because radio is prominent - two women and a nine year old girl in a kitchen -with a lot of music and radio commercials. It is nostalgic and warm in a way creepy because as a society we have learned so much since 1952. “This is not the Vegas we know today but the one transforming itself from a western whistle stop to the mecca it is today. Hotels were just starting to be built, but the chapels were there in the early 50s.” The play won the Maxwell Anderson award in 1995 for the best “unproduced” play in Rockland County. The playwrights live in Ellenville. “Shadowland really is coming into its own at this point,” John said. “Brendan took great interest and started sitting down a year ago and talking from his director’s point of view and made great suggestions which helped to being the play where it is today. He was a great help.” Jackass Flats opens June 24 and runs through July 10. For reservations: 845-647-5511.

“Art About Art, Reflective Perspective”

Highland Mills Music Haven Adds New Art Gallery

“Coneflower” & “Poppies” by Debbie Gioello

by Rosalind Hodgkins

The ARTery Gallery is pleased to announce an exciting exhibit in June, featuring new paintings by Debbie Gioello and Rosalind Hodgkins. Gioello will be presenting a new collection of paintings which incorporates and juxtaposes realism and expressionism. These dimensional paintings are presented as collages, superimposing realistic flower images onto expressionistic, infused watercolor paint on paper. Hodgkins approaches painting from an art historical point of view. She selects a familiar art image out of it's context and puts it into a new one and then forms a dialogue with the addition of botanical images. The art historical reference usually influences her painting style as well. This process is visionary, it's an exploration in developing compositions that often express perceptual analogies or metaphors. Both artists’ work focuses on juxtapostion of style and subject; Gioello using layers of watercolor and photography expressionistically, while Hodgkins focuses on art history, referencing familiar historical art images and botanical images to develop

Nadas in Beacon

Now that the warmer weather is upon us, Palaia Vineyards and Winery in Highland Mills will once again be offering music, shows and festivals in the outdoor tent/amphitheater, with its view of Schunnemunk Mountain. Along with the re-birth of the outdoor events, comes the birth of the Sweet Clover Room, which gets its name from the dairy that used to occupy the 200 year old barn that now plays host to the winery operations and the venue for music of all kinds.

Built on land once owned by Aaron Burr in 1784, the three story “bank” barn has been restored and given a new life filled with music and wine. The new "Sweet Clover" room will feature a new artist each month as well as serving as a separate party room for rent, and a new indoor venue for live music. The art will be available for viewing during regular business hours, and people are encouraged to taste the wines and enjoy the gallery at no charge. Sweet Clover will be filled with art by Nick Agnello (see photo). With a BA in Fine Arts from Florida University, Nick currently resides in Cornwall and is seeking a teaching position in the Arts. His art is on exhibit beginning June 4, with a wine and cheese reception from 2:00pm-4:00pm. www.palaiavineyards.com

was. But later lyrics include sophistication AND sadness - just listen to Ella Fitzgerald and her painful, lento offering of “Oh sweet and lovely Lady Be Good”, or the brilliant mini-opera about Christopher Columbus he created with Kurt Weill for the forgotten film Where Do We Go From Here? that runs the gamut from funny to nostalgic and terrifying to silliness and highly clever to charming simplicity. Ira created songs with George Gershwin, Kurt Weill, Harold Arlen (The Man That Got Away), Vincent Youmans, Arthur Schwartz and Jerome Kern. He mentored musical historian Michael Feinstein in the creation of important musical archives, “Gershwinian” and others. His critically acclaimed book Lyrics on Several Occasions (1959), an amalgam of autobiography and annotated anthology, is an important source for studying the art of the lyricist in the Golden Age of American popular song. In 1992, a list of great Gershwin-brother songs were tossed into a new throwntogether book by Ken Ludwig, vaguely derived from Girl Crazy (1930). It ran on Broadway for four years and included some of Ira’s (and George’s) best work, some familiar, some not so well known. Ludwig penned classics like Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo.

The area’s one and only “physical theatre” company, North American Culture Lab in Highland Lake, is giving birth to its 2011 season with a new play, DarwinII: The Comeuppance of Man. Written by Glen Berger (author of Broadway’s Spider-Man) and performed by co-creator Brett Keyser (see photo), DarwinII is a delightful, madcap public apology from an Argentine thief named Cristobal for his unauthorized acquisitions of rare Darwin documents. The one-man tour de force evolves magically along a narrow strip of carpet, with audience members seated close up, on either side. “A bright but brooding portrayal of an unstable yet penetrating mind that mines both the antics of vaudeville and the philosophical implications of Darwinian theory to produce a thoughtful and thorough exploration of a debate that still rages in American politics today.” Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Ira Gershwin (and his brother) by Al Hirschfeld

by Derek Leet Most often when the names of the great Tin Pan Alley lyricists are “dropped”, there is usually mention of the happy sophistication of Cole Porter, the pain and sadness of Lorenz Hart, the connection to the public sensibility of Irving Berlin, and the prolificacy of Johnny Mercer. Of course all of the above wordsmiths had other qualities inherent in their lyrics. (Every time I hear a painful, sad and unsophisticated Porter lyric, I die a little. Every time I hear a happy sophisticated Hart lyric, I get too hungry for dinner at eight.) But there is only one of the great Tin Pan Alley lyricists who had all the above qualities, usually ascribed singly to various lyricists, in almost all of his songs. And though his brother’s name always comes first in the Tin Pin Alley list of great composers - ahead of Kern and Rodgers, Porter and Berlin and Arlen - Ira’s name gets short shrift and is sometimes even forgotten. The first published song by Ira Gershwin was Ten Commandments of Love in 1918. I have no idea what kind of lyric it

Frank Schuback and Jon Patrick Murphy use found objects creatively in paintings and sculptures. Their art conveys an awareness of the materials around us, as well as examining our co-existence with mass production and commercialism in our

modern society. Their show, Lost and Found pairs these two artists for the first time in exhibition at Mikey Teutel’s WolfGang Gallery. While Frank and Jon successfully celebrate our societies’ modern comforts, they also reveal an undercurrent of reliance and an unhealthy distraction with material goods which may adversely affect our goal of inner peace and contentment.

The Art of the Bean

by J.A. Di Bello Securely nestled on the corner of Stony Ford Road and NYS Route 207 is the Noble Coffee Roasters' Café (NCR). Bordering approaches to the Campbell Hall commuter rail station, it serves as a starting point for those who travel by rail or road to taskoriented destinations. For others it's a convenient luxury, especially to residents of neighboring Hamptonburgh, Goshen, Montgomery and Wallkill who have experienced the café and its compelling attractions. The Café is another in the list of gems to be found in the Wallkill River Valley. NCR is, in fact, a coffee distribution company founded by Jack Deckaj in 1982, when it was known as Liberty House Coffee. Jack, a native of Albania, brought with him to this country the exquisite tastes and culinary expectations that characterize his family and its enviable product. Not surprisingly, those traits are found in The Noble Coffee Roasters' house blend, a combination of three exquisite, carefully selected coffees from South America and Africa. In 2002 the company moved to its current

location in Campbell Hall. The pride and excellence continue in the competent care of Jack's two sons, Paul and Robert Deckaj. To the best of this writer's knowledge, NCR’s Café is the only coffee house in the immediate area that actually blends and roasts its coffee on the premises. Not only is the distinguished house blend available, but there are fourteen other roasted beans in stock for individualized grinding, brewing and enjoying. If you believe this too good to be true, the delights have only begun. This Café is full service, offering culinary pleasures to accompany beverages of choice. Freshfrom-the-oven pastry delights are prepared on premises by pastry chef, Christine Worschinski. Her freshly prepared cannoli are frequent companions to orders of espresso. There exists also a lunch menu complete with salads and additional pleasures served on assorted, pressed panini breads and fresh ciabatta. There's more! Thursday nights are devoted to poetry reading, literary recitations and various forms of oral interpretation. Each month the café features a visual artist, as a wide variety of media are displayed and offered for sale. On any given Saturday night musical entertainment is available, with Music for Humanity and Sojouran as favorites. To complete the art-of-the bean experience, bring the lap top. There's free Wi-Fi.

On The Road A significant number of casual travelers have marveled at the quality of photographs printed in "National Geographic" (NG). That level of photographic perfection is no accident and a large number of photographers submitting photos, to NG or other similar publications are professionals, i.e., professionals "on assignment." An inquisitive Jeanne Mueller of Montgomery is also an enthusiastic photographer and a portion of her work fits

neatly into the genre of Travel Photography. Her training in the visual arts has sharpened her awareness of several rules of the road. Some relate to artistic guidelines that have assisted visual artists since pre-photography times. Dividing frames into thirds, including references, i.e., human subjects and being prepared for the spontaneous are just a few topics that frequently occupy texts, but are rules best learned on the road. Mueller will be a featured photographer at an art show and sale scheduled to be held at Noble Coffee Roasters' Café in July.

Channeler Judy Satori Judy Satori has been spiritually trained by many higher dimensional beings of light and love to assist people to literally rewire energetically and to prepare on all levels of being for the earth's transit to higher dimensional consciousness, the fifth dimension and beyond. Judy trained both as a channel and as an energy healer in grounded, ‘real world’ techniques. “The energy words I speak are transmitted directly into the DNA template and cells of the body to trigger in each individual a remembering of past soul ability and knowledge. This in turn leads to the expansion into more of our soul’s essence that is part of our own ascension process." An Afternoon with Judy Satori will be held at The Nurtured Spirit, 252 Pine Island Turnpike, Warwick on June 18 at 2:00pm.845-986-9788 and 845-544-2725.

WCM & Monticello HS Collaboration in 15th Year Over the years since its 1994 inception, Weekend of Chamber Music (WCM) has brought its Artist Coaching Project to all of the Sullivan County school districts and for all grades. Moreover its 15-year partnership with Monticello High School's (MHS) Music Program has been the anchor of WCM's commitment to the area's school children. The collaboration's strength and continuing development derives from a shared implacable belief in the necessity of the arts in a child's life. A celebration of that and what it has meant for so many students, will be evident during Last Night at the conclusion of the "Steps & Sounds" project when the WCM artist coaches and MHS music educators join student musicians and dancers for the final Chaconne,.on Monday June 13th at 6:30pm at the newly named Eugene D. Nesin Theater for the Performing Arts, 22 St. John Street in Monticello. This unusual program would have been impossible without MHS's new dance

teacher, Karissa Mollicone, Kenneth Hamrick, WCM's new Education Director, working closely with Monticello music teachers Nancy Wegrzyn and Ann Trombley. Baroque dance specialist Carlos Fittante brings added coaching, inspiration and excitement to the project. The performance, titled Last Night, will bring to a close "Steps and Sounds of Different Cultures" a project which brought the high school musicians and dancers together to explore each other's discipline, and instill a strong sense of PULSE, RHYTHM and PHRASING in the students. "Last Night" will present a combined MHS/WCM performance of Lully's Chaconne from the opera Amadis.

from Grades 7 and up. Participants will learn basic traditional hand drumming techniques, as well as two Ghanaian drum rhythms ('Kpalogo' -4/4 and 'Agadza'- a 6/8) The "Steps & Sounds…" project was made possible by the with related cultural history and songs, over Arts Partners Challenge Grant program of ArtsWestchester, the course of the sessions.

Destination.............................................................................. Planned Parenthood Presents: June 5 Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley Community Education & Outreach is presenting a private screening free event at Downing Film Center. In Orgasm, Inc., a shocking and hilarious documentary, filmmaker Liz Canner takes a job editing erotic videos for a drug trial for a pharmaceutical company. Her employer is developing what they hope will be the first Viagra drug for women to win FDA approval to treat a new disease: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD). Liz gains permission to film the company for her own documentary. Initially, she

plans to create a movie about science and pleasure but she soon begins to suspect that her employer, along with a cadre of other medical companies, might be trying to take advantage of women (and potentially endanger their health) in pursuit of billion dollar profits If interested in attending this event on Monday, June 6 at 7:30pm, or for more information, please telephone Tiffany Card at Planned Parenthood at 845-838-1200, ext. 114.

Women Invade Newburgh One year before playwright Arthur Kopit rose to fame in 1963 with his successful play Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad, he wrote a play with a very unlikely title, Chamber Music. The play’s female characters are Gertrude Stein, Joan of Arc, Susan B. Anthony, Queen Isabella, Constanze Mozart, Amelia Earhart, actress Pearl White, and explorer Osa Johnson. BUT - they are actually inhabitants of an insane asylum who believe they are those famous women, and are plotting the destruction of their arch enemy: the men’s ward. The one-act play will be followed by a musical cabaret of songs about being or feeling insane. At the Railroad Playhouse, 27 South Water Street, from June 2-11. www.rrplayhouse.com.

...........................................................................NEWburgH Air Pirates to Disembark at Newburgh Train Station

Alan Andrews, Holly Gobelez and Kate Braddock

Director/Writer Paul Ellis and “Cue Card Girl”

The Air Pirates Radio Theater was voted the Best Performing “Troupe” of 2010 in the Hudson Valley by the Times Herald-Record. If “Troupe” is another word for “Repertory Company”, then we’d have to say, “Right On”. In just five short years, Paul Ellis has honed his troupe into a cohesive repertory company: skilled actors whose interplay with each other is formidable. Starting in a small restaurant in Monroe, and growing into the larger Pavilion at Lycian Centre in Sugar Loaf where they play six times a year to full houses, the Air Pirates Radio Theater is the only theater of its kind and will begin its summer season at the Railroad Playhouse in Newburgh. Presenting a unique mixture of live contemporary interactive theater and old time radio comedy, The Air Pirates perform their unique brand of comedy plays while broadcasting live on the radio. An ensemble of five actors portrays all the characters while the audience is asked to produce all

the sound effects. The Cue Card Girl lets the audiences know when it's time to slam a door, make the footsteps and even shoot the guns during the shows. The Pirates also perform the radio commercials live asking the audience to supply the necessary sound effects. Air Pirates Radio Theater brings the first three episodes of each of their series to Newburgh. Herb Marks Freelance: Art By the Numbers is the first in the Herb Marks series. The play takes a diminutive detective and his sidekick, Smokestack el Ropo, into the high powered world of art and a mystery filled with gallery owners, thieves and quirky artists. The Air Pirates Radio Theater opens at the Railroad Playhouse on South Water Street on June 25 at 8:00pm. Tickets can be purchased on the Railroad Playhouse website, www.RRplayhouse.com. You can visit the Air Pirates on their web site at www.airpiratesradio.com. Their Sugar Loaf season begins in the fall.

Commemorate your Hero

Mural by Garin Baker at Newburgh Waterfront

by Susan Roth Trestle, Inc. is planning to create an addition to the commemorative walkway in front of Newburgh's spectacular series of outdoor murals on the railroad trestle along the Hudson River. This new segment will be named "2011 Salute to Heroes." The purpose is to encourage citizens to honor heroes that have made a difference in their lives with the purchase of a brick to memorialize their names on this section of the walkway. "Heroes come from many different areas of our lives" said Kiki Hayden, Vice President of Trestle, Inc. “Not only do they include our professional emergency services and military, but they also include community heroes that make our lives better." The Trestle Mural Project concept began in 2002, when Father. Bill Scafidi, pastor of

St. Mary’s Church, was holding a series of events at the waterfront commemorating the first anniversary of the September 11 tragedy. Facing the 220 foot railroad wall, he came to the decision that he was going to do something to beautify the city. The unsightly barricade separating the newly revitalized waterfront from the rest of the city seemed the best place to begin. To purchase a brick memorial for your favorite hero, you can go to www.trestle.org and download the brick application and mail it to the address on the form. If you do not have access to the internet, call Trestle, Inc. at 845-565-1052, and they will mail an application to you. Each personalized brick is $100 and is tax deductible. Orders need to be received by July 15, 2011. Trestle, Inc. is a non-profit dedicated to “Expanding Art and Culture in Newburgh”.
