Concerts in the Village Presents Choral & Instrumental Classical Music in Kinderhook, Feb 24

 

Concerts in the Village offers two memorably expressive commentaries on youth and maturity. Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen cycle for piano (1838) presents 13 brief “imaginings,” each distilling a powerful emotion from the early years of life. Pianist Noah Palmer (CITV Musical Assistant) brings his impressive talents to these exquisite keyboard works. Following intermission tenor Jon Morrell and pianist David Smith (CITV Artistic Director) bring their own extensive experience to bear on Franz Schubert’s haunting Winterreise (1827), regarded by many as the most important and challenging song cycle ever written. In Schubert’s intense sequence of songs performers and listeners alike will experience an unforgettable “winter journey,” a remarkable passage through maturity.

Mary Anne Davis’ Women and Power Show & Reception at Chatham Bookstore

Ceramic artist Mary Anne Davis displays her work inspired by the book, “Women and Power, A Manifesto,” by Mary Beard.

“The Women and Power series was sparked by a sense of enthusiasm for a group of women Davis represented in decorated porcelain. Each of the women articulated in these whimsical representations held a certain kind of power. Many were trailblazers, such as Katherine Graham, Brooke Astor, and Dorothy Draper. They were originally exhibited as a group at the Smithsonian Craft show in Washington DC in 2002-03 and at the Mark MacDonald Gallery in Hudson in 2005.

In an artist’s statement, Davis notes that “this newly reinvigorated women’s movement has elicited their return to public life…. To continue to build the recognition of female influence in the realms of fashion, design, politics, literature, philosophy, and power,” she has added several new pieces to the collection.”

DATE/TIME:
Reception with the artist – Friday, February 23, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The show runs until April 6th

LOCATION:
The Chatham Bookstore
27 Main Street in the Village of Chatham.
