  • | 6:30pm - 8:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Film, Film Series, WPA Murals, Great Depression, Norwalk
    - In May 1935, as part of the great return-to-work effort known as the Works Progress Administration (the WPA), President Franklin Delano Roosevelt returned Americans back to work in the service of the rebuilding of a society staggering under the weight of the Great Depression.

    Under the Federal Art Project of the WPA, these workers included artists, writers, actors, and musicians; for Roosevelt believed that in order to lift ourselves out of economic stagnation we would also need to rebuild the culture of America at the grass roots level.

    On Wednesday, May 4th at 6:30pm, Norwalk Community College will screen “Enough to Live On: The Arts of the WPA” as the concluding film in its Movies-of-the-Month free film series. Ashford, Connecticut independent filmmakers Michael Maglaras and Terri Templeton of 217 Films will introduce the film and take questions following the screening.

    “Enough to Live On” tells the story of how Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal moved art in America out of the rarified atmosphere of the elite and brought it directly to the American people as an inspiration and catalyst for change and recovery in the 1930s.

    “Roosevelt’s vision for the WPA is as relevant today as it was then, ‘We are trying to construct a more inclusive society.  We are going to make a country in which no one is left out,’” said Susan Wallerstein, chair of the Norwalk Arts Commission.  “When people think of the WPA, they usually think of visual arts.  In fact, the WPA supported many art forms – from music to dance to live theatre. This film includes an example of WPA theatre, including film footage of the performance.”

    “Enough to Live On” features more than 70 works of art from this period, including notable works by Rockwell Kent, Dorothea Lange, Stuart Davis, and Reginald Marsh, as well as rare footage of WPA artists at work.

    The section focused on Harlem includes the groundbreaking work of the great muralist Aaron Douglas; introduced with the poetry of Langston Hughes and featuring a composition by African American composer William Grant Still and an appearance by the remarkable blues singer Juanita Hall.  View a clip at this link: https://vimeo.com/120514423
    Diane Jellerette, Executive Director of the Norwalk Historical Society, noted that while nationally many pieces of WPA art have been lost or destroyed, “Norwalk has saved and conserved over 50 murals, many of which are in Norwalk City Hall.  There are a number of restored murals in most if not all towns and cities in Fairfield County.  Norwalk has one of the largest collections of restored WPA murals in the United States.”

    Excerpts from the film can be viewed at this link: https://vimeo.com/two17films.
    This screening is sponsored by Norwalk Community College, the Norwalk Arts Commission, Norwalk Historical Society, and Westport Historical Society.

    About 217 Films: 217 Films is an independent film company located in Ashford, Connecticut. “Enough to Live On: The Arts of the WPA” is the sixth film by director Michael Maglaras and executive producer Terri Templeton.

    In ten years of filmmaking, and by employing a concept which he originated -- the idea of an “essay in film” – Maglaras has asked us to stop, look, appreciate and recognize the importance of our collective American cultural life through films about artists as diverse as Marsden Hartley, John Marin and Lynd Ward, and events such as the world-changing 1913 Armory Show and the arts of the American Depression.

    Maglaras and Templeton hold the distinction of having been invited to present four of their films at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. where the Director of Film, Peggy Parsons, has described their work as “virtuoso filmmaking.”

    The Sacramento Bee called Maglaras a film maker of "Bergman-like gravitas." His films have been described as "virtuoso filmmaking" (National Gallery of Art) "alive and fresh" (Art New England) "elegiac and insightful" (Naples Daily News) "unforgettable" (Journal of American History) and “comparable to that of the widely acclaimed Ken Burns” (New Britain Herald).

    In December 2016, 217 Films’ new documentary titled “America Rising: The Arts of the Gilded Age.” will be released. This film highlights the arts of the American renaissance…what Mark Twain described as “The Gilded Age.”

    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

  • | 7:30pm - 9:15pm | Arts and Entertainment, Hudson Chorale Elijah
    - Mendelssohn’s greatest achievement and his own personal favorite –in English with full orchestra - is not to be missed!

    Hudson Chorale, Westchester’s largest chorus, will conclude its 6th season on May 14, 2016 by performing Felix Mendelssohn’s stirring oratorio, Elijah, based on the story of the prophet in the Old Testament. Complete with outstanding professional soloists and a full 35-piece orchestra, this monumental work will be performed in English so that the audience can fully appreciate the composer’s musical interpretation of the prose which runs the gamut of scenarios and emotions. Elijah has all the markings of a box office blockbuster: a true god, a false god, a saintly prophet, an evil ruler, angels, a temptress, miracles, tragedy, feuding tribes, Mother Nature behaving badly, and even a chariot of fire in the last scene! One performance only at the Irvington Middle/High School, 40 North Broadway, Irvington, NY, beginning at 7:30 pm.

    Mendelssohn, born in 1809, was a musical prodigy who became obsessed with oratorios when very young. By the age of 20 he was working on renewing interest in biblical oratorios; by age 27, he had already completed his first large-scale biblical oratorio, St. Paul; and by age 37, he completed what he thought was his greatest lifetime achievement – Elijah. He wrote the following after its first performance: No work of mine went so admirably the first time of execution, or was received with such enthusiasm by both the musicians and the audience.

    The concert will feature the 80-voice Hudson Chorale and a full professional orchestra. This is the chorus’ second concert to be conducted by Ira Spaulding, chorus’ Music Director/Conductor. Spaulding has a 35-year career in performing, conducting and teaching all over the world, and is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York. The chorus has assembled an outstanding professional ensemble of guest soloists to perform the various arias, duets and recitatives that are part of the story.

    Handicap parking is available. Following the concert, the audience is invited to an informal reception to meet and chat with the conductor, soloists, orchestra and chorus members, a long-standing Hudson Chorale tradition.

    Ticket Prices: Advance Sales - $25; Door - $30; Students - $10. Tickets can be purchased by calling (914) 462-3212 or on-line at http://www.HudsonChorale.org.

  • | 10:30am - 9:00pm | Charity, Fundraiser, Charity, Fundraiser, Golf
    - SilverSource, Inc. is pleased to announce their 16th annual charity golf outing, set for Monday, May 23rd at Rockrimmon Country Club in Stamford, CT. The organization, formerly known as Senior Services of Stamford, is holding the tournament to raise funds for the Ride to Wellness Medical Transportation Program and the Housing Stability Fund. This year’s event will honor Paul and Patricia Kuehner. Paul, who serves as the president of Building and Land Technologies, together with his wife Patricia are engaged in numerous charitable activities from Stamford to Zambia, where they are active in the ongoing success of an orphanage. Together they are a formidable force for changing the lives of those who need a hand, both at home and abroad. Registration is open, and all are welcome. Visit https://silversourcegolf2016.eventbrite.com or call, 203-324-6584.

    “The annual golf tournament is a fun day for everyone, and also an opportunity to make a real difference,” said Karen M. Kelly, SilverSource Board Chair. “Funds raised at the tournament support efforts that combat two of the top challenges facing lower income older adults: the Ride to Wellness transportation program promotes healthy aging by ensuring safe affordable transportation to medical and dental appointments. The Housing Stability Fund prevents homelessness through crucial programming. I invite everyone to come out, have fun and join us in supporting our older neighbors in need.”

    This enjoyable day commences with a pre-tournament brunch and registration at 10:30am and the tournament begins with a shotgun start at 12pm. In addition to team awards, golfers will compete for individual prizes in closest to the pin, longest drive and putting contests. At 5pm players will enjoy a lively reception where they can mingle and vie for special auction and raffle prizes, followed by a seated dinner at 6:15pm. Foursomes may enter at a cost of $1,000 and individuals may register at a cost of $300. Sponsorship packages are also available. Rockrimmon Country Club, with its course originally designed by renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, is located at 2949 Long Ridge Road in Stamford, CT. To register, visit https://silversourcegolf2016.eventbrite.com/

    “The golf outing is our annual “drive” for older adults,” said Kathleen Bordelon, Executive Director of SilverSource. “Our driver may be more popular than Big Bertha, because he shows up in the SilverSource car and gets people to their appointments on time. It’s golfing for a good cause, and we invite everyone to join us this year in honoring Paul and Patricia because they exemplify what it means to support those in need with compassion, dedication, and commitment to helping those who need it most.”
