the New York Philharmonic is set to end its pandemic-induced moratorium on foreign travel in May, when they make three concert appearances at the Usedom Festival. The festival takes place on the Baltic island of Usedom, off the coast of northeastern Germany, near the Polish border.

The residence makes it possible to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Peenemünde concerts, the 80th anniversary of the United Nations and the 180th anniversary of the New York Philharmonic.

The performances will take place at the Historical Technical Museum in Peenemünde, which was once a scientific military base where the Nazis developed super-weapons. The festival now holds concerts there to promote world peace.

The New York Phil’s first concert, which also serves as the festival-wide opener, takes place on May 20 and features the pianist Jan Lisiecki as a soloist in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor”. The program also includes the European premiere of Nina Shekharthe newly commissioned work of Luminaas well as Shostakovich’s Ninth Symphony.

Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter joins the orchestra on May 21, performing a 2001 work written especially for her: André PrevinViolin Concerto by. Joan Towerwork inspired by suffrage 1920/2019 will receive another release, as well as Bartók’s evergreen concerto for orchestra.

The third program presents the baritone Thomas Hampson singing excerpts from Mahler Knaben Wunderhornsas well as performances of Walker’s lyrics for strings and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7.

However, this concert does not conclude the orchestra’s festival commitment: on May 23 and 24, the musicians will collaborate with members of the Baltic Sea Philharmonic to present two chamber music concerts, including Barber’s summer music, Mozart’s Horn Quartet in E flat major and Brahms’ String Sextet No. 2.

A portion of all proceeds will go to New Orleans-based nonprofits through the Rex Foundation.

Named for the period between the two weekends of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, when the fairgrounds quiet down but the city is still buzzing with festive energy, Daze Between New Orleans will have revelers dancing throughout the week. The two-day event will feature headlining performances from Colorado jam-weed titans, The String Cheese Incident, in addition to a slew of nationally touring bands and famous local favorites. .

Additional local food vendors will be announced closer to the music festival date. The festival will also host an artists’ village featuring a variety of local artisans and vendors as well as live painting exhibitions and a gallery covering the entire career of a renowned local painter. Frenchwith part of the profits going to the Rex Foundation.

The event, presented by Live For Live Music, Purple Hat Productions, GMP Live and Rose Tours.

“For me, Jazz Fest has always been more than just a festival that takes place at the fairgrounds over two separate weekends,” said Kunj Shah, founder of Live For Live Music. “It’s the food, it’s the culture, it’s the late-night shows. It’s a chance to rekindle our love affair with New Orleans during the days in between. With this new festival, we are grateful to have the opportunity to bring something special to this city that has given us so much music, culture and inspiration.

Gideon Plotnicki, founder of GMP Live, adds: “We are delighted to bring this new event to life in the magnificent Faubourg brasserie. New Orleans is such a special place, especially at this time of year, and we’re proud to be creating something new and meaningful in a city that’s so close to our hearts.

Daze Between New Orleans has partnered with Rex Foundation, the organization founded by the Grateful Dead that provides grants to small nonprofits doing great work in the arts, sciences, education, environment, indigenous culture and social justice. From their earliest days, the Grateful Dead received countless requests for help from community organizations. The group became known for its generosity and its many benefit concerts. In 1984, the band members, along with their family and friends, established the Rex Foundation as a non-profit charitable organization, enabling the band to proactively support creative endeavors in the arts, sciences , education, environment, indigenous culture and social justice. A portion of all ticket sales will go directly to New Orleans-based nonprofits. Additionally, a virtual auction will offer fans a chance to secure NOLA and Grateful Dead-themed artwork, experiences and memorabilia.

We thank the Brasserie du Faubourg team for giving us this opportunity and for working with us to launch something special that will contribute to the landscape between Jazz Fest weekends for years to come.

One-day and two-day general admission and VIP passes, as well as hotel packages, for the inaugural Daze Between New Orleans festival can be purchased at festival website.

Snow and ice can stretch nerves like a bungee cord pulled beyond its capacity. That, at least, is a reaction among motorists who encounter freeway driving conditions where shoulders try to suck them in and passing 18-wheelers throw whiteouts.

Parents stuck with snowy kids can also feel a little stretched.

Think of the snow as a canopy of opportunity. Think of ice as a surface to glide with grace or speed. Embrace snow and ice for their recreational opportunities and the ability of winter activities to generate smiles and memories.

Watching someone you love do a face plant in deep, powdery snow can be at least a little funny.

SnoFlinga, Butte’s annual winter festival, returns January 21, featuring three days of snow or ice-related activities. The community-sponsored event takes place in and around Butte and near Homestake Pass.

SnoFlinga 2022 Events Calendar

Last year’s festival included several virtual events due to concerns over COVID-19.

This year, pandemic concerns remain, but organizers believe events, all but one scheduled outdoors, may be in-person rather than virtual.

There is Nordic skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, ice hockey and curling. There’s a fat bike race, a fun 5k run/walk, a polar dip and more.

In short, there are 18 activities spread over eight locations. Most events are free.

Cassandra Sunell is a key organizer for SnoFlinga. In her day job, she works as the Director of Recruitment and Business Outreach for Butte Local Development Corp.

She said the goal of SnoFlinga is to get families out of the community and introduce them to all the winter activities available.

“Obviously winter takes a long time in Montana,” Sunell said. “It’s a different attitude to celebrate winter.”

And given that almost all of the events take place outside in the open air, with social distancing built in, the festival should be safer than most, Sunell said.

Volunteers run SnoFlinga, which emerged from a brainstorming session in November 2015 by a group of Butte winter enthusiasts – the types who tend to have red cheeks and low body fat. They hoped to encourage recreation during the winter months.

On January 22, The Homestake Lodge will host Nordic or cross-country skiing on groomed trails, with free Nordic skiing lessons that require a refundable $5 registration fee. Coaching provided by the Mile High Nordic Ski Education Foundation.

One lesson will focus on Nordic skate skiing.

Course participants who require skis will not have to pay for rentals that day.

A snowshoe excursion is already full, but people with their own snowshoes can inquire about taking part.

Mark and Lauren Thieszen have owned Homestake Lodge since April, but have lived in Butte for about 12 years. They have been active in SnoFlinga before.

The Homestake Lodge is located in a high valley on the Continental Divide east of Butte and is no stranger to snow.

“It’s great right now,” Mark Thieszen said on January 10.

The Homestake Lodge has over 35 kilometers of groomed trails. Of these, about 15 kilometers accept dogs. Those arriving on January 22 with their own cross-country skis will not be required to purchase a day pass.

On January 23, Homestake Lodge will host a class that will offer basic information on detecting avalanche threats and using safety equipment. Registration limited.







Curling

“SnoFlinga is a really great event,” said Mark Thieszen.

The Butte High Altitude Skating Center, formerly the US High Altitude Sports Center, will be the site of the opening ceremonies on January 21, beginning at 5 p.m. An ice sculpting demonstration will begin at noon.

On January 22, the High Altitude Skating Center will host Olympic-style skating races and marathon races of three separate distances. Registration closed on January 18.

There will be a Kids Day at Stodden Park on Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Sunell said SnoFlinga is family-friendly and healthy and provides an introduction for many residents to winter outdoor sites they might drive to every day without knowing their availability for public use.

But what about skijoring, a popular SnoFlinga event in 2019?

A lack of snow prevented skijoring in 2020 and COVID-19 halted activity in 2019.

Anthony Fields reacts after jumping into the frigid pool at the base of the original headframe as he and fellow FROSÉ ALL DAY team members compete in the annual Polar Dive event at Butte’s fifth annual SnöFlinga. The team raised $1,400 for Special Olympics Montana.

In ski joëring, a horse-drawn skier clings to a rope and steers through a course strewn with obstacles, jumps and gates. The fastest time wins.

Sunell said organizers have discovered that organizing a skijoring event takes a remarkable amount of manpower.

Sunell said skijoring may return one day, but likely as a standalone event and not under the SnoFlinga umbrella.

Another popular spectator event is the annual Southwestern Polar Plunge, a fundraiser for Special Olympics Montana and its athletes and teams in the Butte, Anaconda, Dillon and Deer Lodge areas.

This year’s dive will take place on Saturday, January 22 at the Original, starting at 2 p.m.







SnoFlinga returns to Butte

A mother and daughter participate in an outdoor Oula session at a past SnoFlinga event at Butte’s annual winter festival.


Meagan Thompson, The Montana Standard


SnoFlinga’s website promises “Fun for Everyone”, which seems a little optimistic considering that some people would rather be at home in an armchair than face off against Jack Frost.

But one key is to dress warmly, in layers.

SnoFlinga urges: get out. To be active. Celebrate the community. Enjoy the winter.

If nothing else, there’s the potential for a smile at a friend’s expense.

Westminster to celebrate the 38th annual Festival of Lessons and Songs https://rockcoastfestival.com/westminster-to-celebrate-the-38th-annual-festival-of-lessons-and-songs/ Wed, 01 Dec 2021 08:00:00 +0000 https://rockcoastfestival.com/westminster-to-celebrate-the-38th-annual-festival-of-lessons-and-songs/ Westminster College in Fulton will celebrate the 38th annual Festival of Lessons and Songs via a live stream at 5pm on Sunday from St Mary the Virgin Church in Aldermanbury.

Westminster College in Fulton will celebrate the 38th annual Festival of Lessons and Songs via a live stream at 5pm on Sunday from St Mary the Virgin Church in Aldermanbury.

The live stream will be available on the Westminster Facebook and YouTube pages, the Westminster Live Stream page, and the US National Churchill Museum Facebook and YouTube pages.

The beloved and time-honored Lessons and Carols of Westminster event is inspired by the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at King’s College, University of Cambridge, England.

The service includes the reading of nine Bible scriptures that relate to the Christmas story. Each reading is followed by a thoughtful song.

Like the annual Cambridge service, the Westminster service begins with the “Once in Royal David’s City” procession and features a student singing the first verse of the song a cappella from the church balcony.

“It’s a time both solemn and hopeful, and for many in our community I think it marks the start of Christmas,” said Associate Professor of Music Dr Natasia Sexton, who leads the Churchill Singers. .

A ten-year tradition in Westminster is the singing of “Joy to the World” after the ninth reading.

“This particular arrangement is marked by beautiful organ accompaniment, and to hear it in this space on our Mander organ played by Gretchen is unparalleled,” Sexton said of Jefferson organist and church musician Gretchen Huedepohl. City, which has accompanied the Churchill Singers since 2009.

In addition to the Churchill Singers, the service will also feature vocals performed by Caleb Alexander, guitarist and guest fine arts instructor; Ken Kehner, jazz pianist and piano teacher; as well as former Audrey Sharp, ’13; Kelsie Slaughter, ’20 and Jack DeArmey, ’20.

The annual event traditionally takes place in Westminster on the second Sunday of Advent.

Reverend Kiva Nice-Webb, chaplain and director of the Center for Faith and Service in Westminster, says Advent is a season of waiting, and many at the college look forward to this particular performance each year. Last year, event sponsors were forced to pre-record and share the concert online after the holidays due to COVID-19 concerns.

“This year we will kick off the Advent season with a mix of live and pre-recorded selections,” Nice-Webb said.

She said live streaming allows a wider audience to enjoy the event, balancing safety and festivity.

“The loss of marking time in the traditional way has been difficult for many people during the pandemic, and we are thrilled to once again offer lessons and singing with the Churchill Singers at St. Mary’s,” Nice-Webb said. .

The Festival of Lessons and Carols is co-sponsored by Westminster’s Center for Faith and Service, the College’s Department of Fine Arts and the US National Churchill Museum.

Bass Coast Festival Raises Over $ 15,000 For Merritt Flood Victims

The festival usually takes place on the traditional and ancestral territories of the Nłeʔkepmx and Syilx

A 13-year-old music festival in the shared traditional and ancestral territories of the Nłeʔkepmx and Syilx, also known as Merritt, brings together fans and artists for a collaborative cause: raising funds for flood victims in British Columbia.

On November 23, Bass Coast called on its festival-goer community to help raise funds for those in need after more than 7,000 residents were rushed from their homes around Merritt due to rising waters.

Many residents are still staying out of their homes, and a larger atmospheric riverine event is expected to occur Monday evening and Tuesday.

Since Bass Coast launched the appeal for help, $ 22,000 has been raised thanks to the festival team who donated $ 5,000 to get the ball rolling.

“Funds raised will be distributed to the community with a focus on helping local indigenous communities and those most affected by the floods,” Bass Coast said.

Now the festival is looking for a new goal of $ 22,000, the inspired amount of the year 2022 and the return of Bass Coast after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

THOMASTON – “As the days get shorter and cooler, we know fall is here, and inevitably winter will follow,” the Pope Memorial Humane Society said in a press release. “Even if it means cold and snow, it also means vacation! “

Start the season with the annual Festival of Lights craft show hosted by the Pope Memorial Humane Society. Two thousand and twenty-one marks the 41st year of this Maine Midcoast tradition.

On Saturday, November 27, the show takes place at Rockland Elks Lodge (210 Rankin St in Rockland) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Admission is $ 2 and children under 12 are free. The kitchen at Elks Lodge will be open and serve lunch upon purchase.

More than 40 artists from across the state of Maine will be showcasing one-of-a-kind products such as ornaments, jewelry, pottery, candles, clothing, vacation-themed items and more. In addition, there will be a silent auction, a bake sale and the option to purchase the cookbook. Recipes to the rescue, a collection of community recipes from the Pope Memorial Humane Society.

“You’ll be sure to find something for everyone on your list and feel great about supporting local homeless animals this holiday season,” Pope said.

Proceeds from the Festival of Lights craft show will go towards food, medicine, care and shelter for homeless animals in the care of the Pope Memorial Humane Society. For more information, email kasey@popehumane.org.

The Pope Memorial Humane Society was founded in 1989 in response to the needs of homeless animals – their protection, care and adoption. The mission of the Pope Memorial Humane Society is to provide compassionate care, treatment and placement for pets in transition and to enrich the lives of pets and individuals in our community.
