  • Hudson Chorale Accepting Members

    Posted on: August 15th, 2016
    Auditions on September 12 Hudson Chorale: New Members Welcomed in September for the Upcoming Season Posted on July 29, 2016 by Hudson Chorale Hudson Chorale, the area’s largest mixed voice chorus, is welcoming new members in all voice parts (SATB) to join them for an exciting 2016-2017 season that will appeal to choral singers of a wide range of musical preferences. This is the Chorale’s first full season under the artistic direction of Ira Spaulding who joined Hudson Chorale last fall as Interim Music Director. He was asked to continue as Music Director in February 2016 after the chorus’ first concert under his direction was received with such high acclaim by the members, the orchestra and the audience as well. Singer-friendly auditions will begin on Monday, September 12, 2016, by appointment, prior to the first rehearsal. Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings from 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. at the Pleasantville Presbyterian Church, 400 Bedford Rd, Pleasantville, NY. To receive additional information and/or to schedule a time for an audition, contact Jeanne Wygant at JeanneWygant@optonline.net or call (914) 478-0074. The first concert program, which will take place on Friday, January 27 and Sunday, January 29, 2017, is entitled Variations on a Text. Both singers and audience will experience how the same words were interpreted musically by composers from different eras (spanning the Renaissance to the present day), cultures, religions and countries. The program will include diverse and contrasting settings of the Ave Maria by Giuseppe Verdi, John Rutter, Tomás Luis de Victoria, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi and others, the Te Deum by Benjamin Britten and Franz Joseph Haydn, and Giovanni Pierluigi de Palestrina’s Sicut Cervus which will be coupled with Herbert Howell’s setting of the same text in English, Like As the Hart Desireth the Waterbrook, plus more. For the audience’s additional enjoyment, the chorus’ highly accomplished accompanist, pianist and organist, David Baranowski, will play two litanies composed for organ from the French Romantic Period: Jehan Alain’s Litanies and Marcel Dupré’s Cortège et Litanie. What better place to perform a concert of great sacred music with organ or piano accompaniment than at the magnificent and inspirational Queen of the Apostles Chapel at Maryknoll in Ossining, NY! The second concert program of the season, entitled Requiem, will be presented on Friday, June 2 and Sunday, June 4, 2017. It 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. The Chorale’s dedication to giving and receiving the satisfaction and enjoyment that comes with musical excellence demands outstanding direction and discipline (while still having fun!), and it can be found under the leadership and skills of its Music Director/Conductor, Ira Spaulding, who will be conducting all performances. Maestro Spaulding is a choral conductor, singer and choral master class instructor whose career spans 36 years of performance in more than 60 countries. He is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York and maintains a career abroad as a singer and conductor. The chorus’ Accompanist/Assistant Music Director, David Baranowski, is a household name to choral singers in the Westchester area due to his virtuosity on piano, keyboard, organ and harpsichord. Since 2010, Hudson Chorale has been performing in venues throughout the county, bringing the best in choral singing to the Hudson Valley. Concerts include a wide breadth of musical genre including traditional choral pieces such as the Brahms Requiem, lesser known but masterful works such as the Mass in D by John Knowles Paine, contemporary works by composers such as Morten Lauridsen and Eric Whitacre, plus other selections that add color and interest to the musical palette. To learn more about the chorus, visit the website at www.HudsonChorale.org.

  • AIRIE Residency in Everglades

    Posted on: April 25th, 2016
    Spanning the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and most of Florida Bay, Everglades National Park is the only subtropical wilderness in North America. It is known for its rich wildlife, particularly large wading birds, and it is the only place in the world where both alligators and crocodiles coexist. The Everglades National Park artist-in-residence program offers artists the opportunity to live and work in this unique environment for one calendar month. The works completed during or following the residency, will contribute to public understanding and appreciation of Everglades National Park. These works will represent and resonate with the Everglades for present and future generations, giving park visitors and the general public an opportunity to see our heritage through the filter of the artists. Each AIRIE Fellow thus becomes an “ambassador” of the Everglades in the world.

  • NYC Offering $2 Million to Promote Diversity in Theatre Management

    Posted on: March 23rd, 2016
    http://www.playbill.com/article/exclusive-nyc-offering-2-million-to-promote-diversity-in-theatre-management Responding to a January 2015 report that highlighted a lack of racial diversity in New York arts groups, New York City announced March 16 that it has allocated $2 million to the city's theatre groups to support "a more inclusive theatre community." Guidelines are being sent out to more than 1,000 arts groups and individuals in the five boroughs of New York, seeking applicants for the funds, according to Ryan Max of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Specifically, the grants are being offered to provide training for production and technical personnel such as stage managers; stagehands; costumers; sound and lighting technicians; administrative and management personnel such as company managers; general managers; press agents; development, marketing, advertising and digital media staff; union administrators; and non-performing artistic personnel such as directors, designers, playwrights, composers, lyricists and casting agents. Other categories of theatre management are also eligible. The grants are designed "to expand access to professional positions in the theater and the breadth of people prepared to hold these positions and advance in this field" by promoting "the development and training of non-performing theater professionals, with a focus on engaging diverse participants." Individual grants will range from $50,000 to $250,000, out of a total pool of $2 million. The grant period will cover the 18 months from January 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018, and proposals must cover activities during that time period. However, existing programs that continue into that period will be eligible to apply.

What better place to perform a concert of great sacred music with organ or piano accompaniment than at the magnificent and inspirational Queen of the Apostles Chapel at Maryknoll in Ossining, NY! The second concert program of the season, entitled Requiem, will be presented on Friday, June 2 and Sunday, June 4, 2017. It 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. The Chorale’s dedication to giving and receiving the satisfaction and enjoyment that comes with musical excellence demands outstanding direction and discipline (while still having fun!), and it can be found under the leadership and skills of its Music Director/Conductor, Ira Spaulding, who will be conducting all performances. Maestro Spaulding is a choral conductor, singer and choral master class instructor whose career spans 36 years of performance in more than 60 countries. He is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York and maintains a career abroad as a singer and conductor. The chorus’ Accompanist/Assistant Music Director, David Baranowski, is a household name to choral singers in the Westchester area due to his virtuosity on piano, keyboard, organ and harpsichord. Since 2010, Hudson Chorale has been performing in venues throughout the county, bringing the best in choral singing to the Hudson Valley. Concerts include a wide breadth of musical genre including traditional choral pieces such as the Brahms Requiem, lesser known but masterful works such as the Mass in D by John Knowles Paine, contemporary works by composers such as Morten Lauridsen and Eric Whitacre, plus other selections that add color and interest to the musical palette. To learn more about the chorus, visit the website at www.HudsonChorale.org.

    http://www.playbill.com/article/exclusive-nyc-offering-2-million-to-promote-diversity-in-theatre-management Responding to a January 2015 report that highlighted a lack of racial diversity in New York arts groups, New York City announced March 16 that it has allocated $2 million to the city's theatre groups to support "a more inclusive theatre community." Guidelines are being sent out to more than 1,000 arts groups and individuals in the five boroughs of New York, seeking applicants for the funds, according to Ryan Max of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Specifically, the grants are being offered to provide training for production and technical personnel such as stage managers; stagehands; costumers; sound and lighting technicians; administrative and management personnel such as company managers; general managers; press agents; development, marketing, advertising and digital media staff; union administrators; and non-performing artistic personnel such as directors, designers, playwrights, composers, lyricists and casting agents. Other categories of theatre management are also eligible. The grants are designed "to expand access to professional positions in the theater and the breadth of people prepared to hold these positions and advance in this field" by promoting "the development and training of non-performing theater professionals, with a focus on engaging diverse participants." Individual grants will range from $50,000 to $250,000, out of a total pool of $2 million. The grant period will cover the 18 months from January 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018, and proposals must cover activities during that time period.

    Posted on: April 25th, 2016
    Spanning the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and most of Florida Bay, Everglades National Park is the only subtropical wilderness in North America. It is known for its rich wildlife, particularly large wading birds, and it is the only place in the world where both alligators and crocodiles coexist. The Everglades National Park artist-in-residence program offers artists the opportunity to live and work in this unique environment for one calendar month. The works completed during or following the residency, will contribute to public understanding and appreciation of Everglades National Park. These works will represent and resonate with the Everglades for present and future generations, giving park visitors and the general public an opportunity to see our heritage through the filter of the artists. Each AIRIE Fellow thus becomes an “ambassador” of the Everglades in the world.

  • Literary Art Call for Milk Journal

    Posted on: March 14th, 2016
    http://www.milkjournal.net/#!submissions/iaqiw Haunt us. Move us. Punch us in the face. We are looking for work that pushes the boundaries, that makes us think, and most importantly, introduces us to a new perspective. We like weird. We like classical. We especially enjoy work pertaining to gender and feminist issues, but our content is certainly not limited to this. Imagery rich writing that makes us pea-green with wishing we'd written it first is what we like best.
  • 188Liberte call for Solo Shows

    Posted on: March 14th, 2016
    188Liberte would like to make itself available to solo artists. Newburgh is rich in artists evident by the many ongoing group shows. 188 Liberty has always celebrated local art. I would like to offer a temporary and affordable option to individual artists to showcase their work. Our space can easily hang and exhibit 20 to 25 good sized pieces. We have a projection system for video and audio. We have wonderful attendance at our Last Saturday events and with a kitchen and large backyard your receptions can spread out and handle a large crowd. We are erecting a new gazebo and walkways to make memorable outdoor events. Please contact Keith and lets discuss the possibilities! 188 Liberty...expect the unexpected # 845 321 2826
