    - Saturday, January 20 – Sunday, June 10, 2018. New Exhibition.

    Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War features a selection of works donated to the Bruce Museum by Beverly and John W. Watling III.

    The United States involvement in World War I lasted only a brief twenty months, from April 1917 to November 1918, but the nation’s military and propaganda strategies were of enormous consequence.

    The variety of approaches which government agencies used to encourage wide-spread participation in the war effort was impressive, from the allure of artist Howard Chandler Christie’s young woman who, in a1917 poster, seductively proclaimed, “I WANT YOU FOR THE NAVY,” to the inquisitional tone of a war loan poster of the next year: “Are you 100% American? Prove it! Buy U.S. Government Bonds.” In the era of radio and film’s infancy, posters remained an essential medium for the public’s dreamlife, capable of nightmarish manipulation: in one of the iconic wartime posters from the Watling donation, artist Joseph Pennell in 1918 powerfully imagined a partially destroyed Statue of Liberty and New York City aflame in the background, with the plea, “That Liberty Shall Not Perish from the Earth/Buy Liberty Bonds/Fourth Liberty Loan.”

    Featuring these works, as well as numerous other posters that combine image and text in ingenious, surprising, and sometimes disturbing combination, “Patriotic Persuasion” marks the centennial of American participation in the First World War. It is organized by Kenneth E. Silver, Bruce Museum Adjunct Curator of Art and Elizabeth Smith, Zvi Grunberg Resident Fellow at the Bruce Museum (2017-2018).

    - Stamford EMS is offering a new Bleeding Control Basics course that teaches how to stop bleeding until medical help can arrive. Developed in response to mass casualty incidents throughout the nation, the class provides proper bleeding control techniques that can save a life. The ninety-minute course takes place on Thursday, January 25th at 7 pm at Stamford EMS headquarters, located at 684 Long Ridge Road in Stamford. The cost is $25, and is appropriate for both the general public and healthcare providers. Visit click for details to register today.

    Similar to learning CPR, learning bleeding control techniques can save a life, as uncontrolled bleeding can cause death in as little as 5-10 minutes. In a moment of serious bleeding, a bystander can become an initial responder, and potentially make all the difference for someone in their greatest time of need.

    The course provides hands-on practice in basic bleeding control techniques, such as direct pressure, dressings and tourniquet application. Participants will come away from the class feeling confident that they can manage a bleeding emergency until EMS can get to the scene.

    Stamford Emergency Medical Services, Inc. is Connecticut’s only accredited EMS agency, responding to over 14,000 calls each year as a private, nonprofit organization. Since it accepted responsibility for Stamford’s ambulance services in 1992, Stamford Emergency Medical Services has remained clearly focused in its mission to provide high quality, compassionate emergency care and education to the communities it serves.

This exhibit features vessel based work that explores issues surrounding identity and how we see ourselves within the context of society, family relationships, and most importantly within our own skin. The national juried exhibit is curated by Kathy King, a renowned artist and educator whose own work reflects the very core theme of the show. She has invited kindred artists Cheyene Rudolph, Beth Lo and Matt Nolen who also use their art to reflect identity and self-awareness.

    - Hudson Chorale, the area’s largest mixed voice chorus, will begin its 2018 season with matinee performances on Saturday, January 27 at 3:00 pm and Sunday, January 28 at 3:00 pm of Franz Joseph Haydn’s masterpiece, Die Schöpfung (The Creation). There is no better place to experience a concert of great sacred music than the magnificent and inspirational Queen of the Apostles Chapel at Maryknoll, 55 Ryder Road, Ossining, NY. To bring out the beauty and depth of the text, which is based on the biblical Book of Genesis, the work will be performed in its original German and include full orchestral accompaniment as well as professional soloists.

    Music Director, Ira Spaulding, with a singing, conducting and teaching career of more than 40 years, promises to offer up such a dynamic performance that even audience members who have heard the piece several times before will leave the concert with the feeling of hearing it for the first time.

    During the majority of his musical career, Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was the most celebrated composer in the world, and is credited with being the father of the symphony and the father of the string quartet. His oratorio, Die Schöpfung, is considered by many to be his greatest musical achievement.

    Following the concert, the audience is invited to an informal reception to meet and chat with the conductor, soloists, orchestra and chorus members while enjoying some delicious refreshments, a long-standing Hudson Chorale tradition. Ticket Prices: Advance Sale-$25; Door-$30; Students-$10. Advanced Sale tickets can be purchased on-line at click for details by calling 1-800-838-3006. Handicap parking is available at the venue.

    Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War features a selection of works donated to the Bruce Museum by Beverly and John W. Watling III.

    The United States involvement in World War I lasted only a brief twenty months, from April 1917 to November 1918, but the nation’s military and propaganda strategies were of enormous consequence.

    The variety of approaches which government agencies used to encourage wide-spread participation in the war effort was impressive, from the allure of artist Howard Chandler Christie’s young woman who, in a1917 poster, seductively proclaimed, “I WANT YOU FOR THE NAVY,” to the inquisitional tone of a war loan poster of the next year: “Are you 100% American? Prove it! Buy U.S. Government Bonds.” In the era of radio and film’s infancy, posters remained an essential medium for the public’s dreamlife, capable of nightmarish manipulation: in one of the iconic wartime posters from the Watling donation, artist Joseph Pennell in 1918 powerfully imagined a partially destroyed Statue of Liberty and New York City aflame in the background, with the plea, “That Liberty Shall Not Perish from the Earth/Buy Liberty Bonds/Fourth Liberty Loan.”

    Featuring these works, as well as numerous other posters that combine image and text in ingenious, surprising, and sometimes disturbing combination, “Patriotic Persuasion” marks the centennial of American participation in the First World War. It is organized by Kenneth E. Silver, Bruce Museum Adjunct Curator of Art and Elizabeth Smith, Zvi Grunberg Resident Fellow at the Bruce Museum (2017-2018).

  • | 3:00pm - 5:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Hudson Chorale Concert
    - Hudson Chorale, the area’s largest mixed voice chorus, will begin its 2018 season with matinee performances on Saturday, January 27 at 3:00 pm and Sunday, January 28 at 3:00 pm of Franz Joseph Haydn’s masterpiece, Die Schöpfung (The Creation). There is no better place to experience a concert of great sacred music than the magnificent and inspirational Queen of the Apostles Chapel at Maryknoll, 55 Ryder Road, Ossining, NY. To bring out the beauty and depth of the text, which is based on the biblical Book of Genesis, the work will be performed in its original German and include full orchestral accompaniment as well as professional soloists.

    Music Director, Ira Spaulding, with a singing, conducting and teaching career of more than 40 years, promises to offer up such a dynamic performance that even audience members who have heard the piece several times before will leave the concert with the feeling of hearing it for the first time.

    During the majority of his musical career, Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was the most celebrated composer in the world, and is credited with being the father of the symphony and the father of the string quartet. His oratorio, Die Schöpfung, is considered by many to be his greatest musical achievement.

    Following the concert, the audience is invited to an informal reception to meet and chat with the conductor, soloists, orchestra and chorus members while enjoying some delicious refreshments, a long-standing Hudson Chorale tradition. Ticket Prices: Advance Sale-$25; Door-$30; Students-$10. Advanced Sale tickets can be purchased on-line at click for details by calling 1-800-838-3006. Handicap parking is available at the venue.

    - Saturday, January 20 – Sunday, June 10, 2018. New Exhibition.

    Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War features a selection of works donated to the Bruce Museum by Beverly and John W. Watling III.

    The United States involvement in World War I lasted only a brief twenty months, from April 1917 to November 1918, but the nation’s military and propaganda strategies were of enormous consequence.

    The variety of approaches which government agencies used to encourage wide-spread participation in the war effort was impressive, from the allure of artist Howard Chandler Christie’s young woman who, in a1917 poster, seductively proclaimed, “I WANT YOU FOR THE NAVY,” to the inquisitional tone of a war loan poster of the next year: “Are you 100% American? Prove it! Buy U.S. Government Bonds.” In the era of radio and film’s infancy, posters remained an essential medium for the public’s dreamlife, capable of nightmarish manipulation: in one of the iconic wartime posters from the Watling donation, artist Joseph Pennell in 1918 powerfully imagined a partially destroyed Statue of Liberty and New York City aflame in the background, with the plea, “That Liberty Shall Not Perish from the Earth/Buy Liberty Bonds/Fourth Liberty Loan.”

    Featuring these works, as well as numerous other posters that combine image and text in ingenious, surprising, and sometimes disturbing combination, “Patriotic Persuasion” marks the centennial of American participation in the First World War. It is organized by Kenneth E. Silver, Bruce Museum Adjunct Curator of Art and Elizabeth Smith, Zvi Grunberg Resident Fellow at the Bruce Museum (2017-2018).

    - If you are married, you need to be alert to a common estate planning pitfall: lack of coordination between your estate plan and your investment plan. A costly estate plan intended to save taxes and benefit heirs can be hampered if the assets don’t flow properly as planned. We will discuss how to help both spouses understand what will happen to their assets when one of them passes away. This conversation will be especially helpful to couples who need tax planning because their assets are large enough to trigger estate taxes. After attending this roundtable, you’ll be better able to ensure that your estate planning and investment planning are in sync.

    - Saturday, January 20 – Sunday, June 10, 2018. New Exhibition.

    Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War features a selection of works donated to the Bruce Museum by Beverly and John W. Watling III.

    The United States involvement in World War I lasted only a brief twenty months, from April 1917 to November 1918, but the nation’s military and propaganda strategies were of enormous consequence.

    The variety of approaches which government agencies used to encourage wide-spread participation in the war effort was impressive, from the allure of artist Howard Chandler Christie’s young woman who, in a1917 poster, seductively proclaimed, “I WANT YOU FOR THE NAVY,” to the inquisitional tone of a war loan poster of the next year: “Are you 100% American? Prove it! Buy U.S. Government Bonds.” In the era of radio and film’s infancy, posters remained an essential medium for the public’s dreamlife, capable of nightmarish manipulation: in one of the iconic wartime posters from the Watling donation, artist Joseph Pennell in 1918 powerfully imagined a partially destroyed Statue of Liberty and New York City aflame in the background, with the plea, “That Liberty Shall Not Perish from the Earth/Buy Liberty Bonds/Fourth Liberty Loan.”

    Featuring these works, as well as numerous other posters that combine image and text in ingenious, surprising, and sometimes disturbing combination, “Patriotic Persuasion” marks the centennial of American participation in the First World War. It is organized by Kenneth E. Silver, Bruce Museum Adjunct Curator of Art and Elizabeth Smith, Zvi Grunberg Resident Fellow at the Bruce Museum (2017-2018).

    - NEWSIES - THE KWESKIN THEATRE
    February 2 THRU 24, 2018 / Directed by Gail Yudain

    Set in New York City at the turn of the twentieth century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. NEWSIES is inspired by the real-life Newsboy’s Strike of 1899, when newsboys Kid Blink and David Simons led a band of orphan and runaway children on a two-week-long action against newspaper publishers Pulitzer and Hearst.

    This fabulous musical has delighted young and old across the country and we're thrilled to be one of the first theaters licensed to perform it!
