Enotes: January 2017- Masterworks from VSO

By camilla @ 9:01 am
SATURDAY JANUARY 21, 2017                                              violin on music
FLYNN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ART
Poetry and music join forces as we showcase our remarkable concertmaster, and delve into Beethoven’s penultimate symphony. The opening piece is by American composer Christopher Theofanidis (“theo-fun-nee-dees) (b.1967), who based Dreamtime Ancestors on the Australian aboriginal idea that everyone is connected through our “dreamtime ancestors” of the past, present, and future.
Then:
The VSO concertmaster, Katherine Winterstein, will take us through her interpretation of American composer Samuel Barber’s iconic violin concerto. Katherine performs on a remarkable and historic instrument, made in 1774, over a hundred years before Beethoven was even born. The program closes with Beethoven’s relentlessly cheerful eighth symphony, a masterpiece that often gets overshadowed by the more famous seventh and ninth symphonies.
This is a program not to miss! More information? https://www.vso.org/event/masterworks-ft-katherine-winterstein/

While weather may be a factor in some of our plans it also will offer us great opportunities at the end of January. Some of our stops will include the local culture such as a photo shoot inside Currier’s Quality Market where we find a local country store that includes everything one needs as well as a 948 pound moose along with many other wildlife that have been preserved and are on display.

We hope to spend a bit of time out on South Bay with the ice fishing shanties and capture an essence of more than a hobby but an economic way of winter life.

St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church in Newport is a history lesson in visuals.

You will feel like you are inside a corner of Versailles, France.
Built in 1903 ….The pews and kneelers are original, but have been renovated and refurbished. All of the paintings on the walls and ceilings were done by a local artist, a Mr. N. O. Rochon, who obtained permission to recreate the works of French artist Tissaud.

A visit to the Haskell Free Library on the Canadian Border will provide an architectural opportunity as well. Inside the library you can take each other’s pictures with one foot in the USA and the other in Canada.

Here’s only a thumbnail…………

 Saturday, January 21, 2017 will debut Once Upon a Time: Peter Pan for 5 to 8 year olds’, a half day of theater learning and fun.

Once Upon a Time: Peter Pan will teach participants about learning music and movement for the stage in addition to creating costume pieces and decorating the space to reflect Neverland as they imagine it. Character work will be a major theme throughout the afternoon as the students learn the roles of “Lost Boys” and “Pirates” bringing their unique personalities to the performance as an ensemble.

Local middle school performers will act as “Show Captains” borrowed from the term “Dance Captains” in the theater business and will lead the little ones through their show.

Cost for the afternoon is $25 for one participant and $40 for a pair. Registration includes water, materials and an ACT 1 t-shirt in addition to professional training. All are welcome, no experience required- just love of creativity is what your child needs to have a memorable afternoon.
