  • | 6:00pm - 7:30pm | Arts and Entertainment, Hudson Chorale Auditions
    - Hudson Chorale, the area’s largest semi-professional community chorus, is welcoming new members in all voice parts (SATB) when rehearsals begin at the Pleasantville Presbyterian Church for a concert program to be presented in June 2017. “Singer-friendly” auditions by appointment will take place on Monday evening, January 30, 2017. Few things in life are as satisfying as joining a group of talented, enthusiastic singers and making beautiful music together every week. Turn your wishes into action and come join us.

    The concert program, to be performed on Friday, June 2 and Sunday, June 4, 2017, and entitled Requiem, features Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved and timeless Requiem (with full orchestra and soloists), a favorite of choral singers, along with a collection of pieces that illustrate the different ways in which composers from baroque to contemporary, with vastly differently styles and from various cultures, have used the universal language of music to express the emotions associated with death, loss and mourning - each in their own unique way. The additional works include Henry Purcell’s masterful Funeral Music for Queen Mary (with brass and timpani), along with other choral gems by Johannes Brahms, Antonio Lotti, and American-born William Schuman, as well as a selection of Negro Spirituals. This eclectic and moving program, to be performed in the wonderful acoustics of the church of St. John the Evangelist in White Plains, NY, will be a joy for singers to master and an audience to receive.

    Since 2010, Hudson Chorale has been performing in venues throughout the county, bringing the best in choral singing to the Hudson Valley. Concerts have included traditional choral pieces such as the Brahms Requiem, lesser known works such as the Mass in D by John Knowles Paine, more contemporary work by composers such as Morten Lauridsen and Eric Whitacre, selections from Broadway, and even new pieces commissioned by the chorus.

    As membership has grown, so has audience size, and the chorus now enjoys a region-wide reputation for outstanding programming and superb artistry. The Chorale’s goal is to provide both audience members and singers with the best possible experience in choral singing, offering exciting programs that include the entire choral repertoire - from the great masterpieces of the past to engaging contemporary compositions. Singers looking for a new or additional choral family are encouraged to consider the Hudson Chorale.

    This is the chorus’ second season under the direction of Ira Spaulding, Hudson Chorale’s Music Director/Conductor. Maestro Spaulding’s personal motivation, and also what he instills in and insists on in his singers and musicians, is to pay maximum respect to each note and phrase in each piece of music in order to achieve the auditory and emotional results the composer had in mind. Hudson Chorale is pleased to be the beneficiary of the experience he acquired over a 36-year career of performing, conducting and teaching conducting master classes in more than 60 countries all over the world. Spaulding also currently holds the position of Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York.

    Audition and rehearsal location: Pleasantville Presbyterian Church, 400 Bedford Rd, Pleasantville, NY. Rehearsals for the spring season take place on Monday evenings from 7:15-9:45 pm starting on February 6, 2017. For additional information and/or to arrange a time for an audition, contact Jeanne Wygant at JeanneWygant@optonline.net or call (914) 478-0074.

    - BOLD HORIZON: Works by Elwood Howell and Carol Young and FEEL GOOD STYLE: Designer Vignette by Beth Krupa Interiors

    Opening Reception: Thursday, February 9th from 5:00 to 8:00pm.
    On Display: February 9th – March 9th.
    Accompanied by an in-gallery Designer Vignette, Designer to-be-announced.

    NEW CANAAN, CT – Start the New Year BOLD with Sorelle Gallery’s exhibition entitled “BOLD HORIZON: Works by Elwood Howell and Carol Young”, on display from February 9th – March 9th. Please join us for an opening reception on Thursday, February 9th from 5:00 to 8:00pm. Through color, layering, light and shadow, Young and Howell’s carefully edited compositions inspire complex, memorable conversation. Chat with the artists you love as you toast to the New Year!

    Imaginative landscape artist Elwood Howell’s signature composition is a high, defined horizon line. The area above the horizon depicts an atmospheric sky, while the area below is a place for the viewer to roam and dream – trekking across texture, drips, colorful abstract shapes, tiny fences and tunnels made of acrylic, ink, charcoal and graphite. Howell says of his painting process, “…by adjusting again and again, from hints [of] previously applied paint,” an ongoing visual dialogue ensues “between painting and painter.” Some paintings never feel finished, much like never-ending debates amongst good friends.
    Carol Young’s paintings of iconic barns in rural American landscapes are also emboldened by the use of imagination and memory. Unpredictable yet effective color choices lead to unexpected compositional movements. A quintessential Connecticut farm transforms into planes of pink, red and yellow. Long shadows glow indigo through lime-green grass. Weathered, historical structures inspire a warm feeling of nostalgia and aloneness in the artist. Young says, “I want to capture the beauty of history in an old farmhouse or barn, before the ever-changing landscape changes again forever.”

    Presenting FEEL GOOD STYLE: A DESIGNER VIGNETTE BY BETH KRUPA INTERIORS

    To Beth and her team, great style is all about editing and editing well. There’s a real specificity to the spaces she designs. Every project is an opportunity to capture her client’s personality and passions --- and always in unexpected ways. Beth’s experiences in London, India, Hong Kong, and NYC continue to influence her firm’s designs. Style encompasses everything that makes clients feel good in a beautiful, evocative setting. The look is chic and worldly, original and purposeful, and every space is defined by both its usefulness and meaning for the people living, visiting, and working there.

    Vignette features items from Cyan, Global Views and Ambella Home. Artwork Provided by Sorelle Gallery.

    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

    Rockin' Road to Dublin is the new sensation that combines the art of an Irish dance show, the power of a Rock-N-Roll concert, all with the finish of a Broadway theatrical production.

    Starring World Champion Irish dancers Scott Doherty and Ashley Smith, the cast includes 14 dancers, 8 musicians and two vocalists.

    Here's what people are saying about Rockin' Road To Dublin:

    "Unique, upbeat, and I love the combination of traditional Gaelic music with rock music and the dancing was extraordinary." - Anne B., Green Bay

    "An incredible dance troupe, a phenomenal musical ensemble, killer staging and lighting. BRAVO! - Ellis K. Davenport

    Performance starts at 7:30PM on Thursday, February 16. Tickets can be purchase at Box Office, by phone 203-325-4466 or PALACESTAMFORD.ORG. For more information go to ROCKINROADTODUBLIN.COM or check out our facebook page. Hope to see you there!

With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.
