Guest Artist | Christian Gerhaher

Sponsored by: Yale Institute of Sacred Music

Christian Gerhaher, baritone

Gerold Huber, piano

presented with support from Yale School of Music

During his studies under Paul Kuen and Raimund Grumbach, German baritone Christian Gerhaher attended the Opera School of the Academy of Music in Munich and, together with his regular piano partner Gerold Huber, studied lied interpretation with Friedemann Berger. While completing his medical studies Christian Gerhaher perfected his vocal training in master-classes given by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Inge Borkh. At present Christian Gerhaher himself teaches in select master-classes and is an honorary professor at the Academy of Music in Munich. He holds the Bavarian Maximilian Order for Science and Art and the title Bayerischer Kammersänger. In 2016 he will be awarded the Music Prize of the Heidelberger Frühling for his outstanding commitment in the performance of classical music.

Christian Gerhaher’s exemplary lied interpretations with Gerold Huber set standards – their recordings have repeatedly won prizes. The lied album Nachtviolen, issued in 2014, received the Gramophone Classical Music Award 2015 in the solo vocal category. The lied duo can be heard on the stages of major international recital centres, for instance in the concert halls of New York, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Cologne and Berlin Philharmonie. He is a particularly frequent guest in the Konzerthaus and the Musikverein in Vienna as well as in the Wigmore Hall in London – in recent years in both the latter halls he was artist in residence. Christian Gerhaher is a regular guest at festivals such as the Schwetzingen Festival, the Rheingau Music Festival, the London Proms, the Edinburgh and Lucerne Festivals as well as the Salzburg Festival. In the season 2016/2017 Christian Gerhaher is focusing even more intensively on lieder; together with Gerold Huber he performs 5 different programmes: in Salzburg, at La Scala Milan, the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, the Philharmonie in Berlin, the Leipzig Gewandhaus, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, in Geneva, Paris, London, Madrid, at the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, as well as on tours to Japan (Tokyo, Nagoya, Yokohma, Kyoto) and to the USA (Washington, San Francisco, Portland and New York). The season will be crowned by three performances of Die schöne Magelone by Brahms in Heidelberg, London and Munich, in which Ulrich Tukur takes the part of the narrator. A related CD will be published in autumn 2016. On this Martin Walser is the narrator of the texts based on Ludwig Tieck which he has carefully adapted to create an ironic version especially for Christian Gerhaher and Gerold Huber.

Besides his principle activity giving concerts and recitals, Christian Gerhaher is also a highly sought-after performer on the opera stage and has received several prizes such as the Laurence Olivier Award and the theatre prize Der Faust. Under Riccardo Muti he sang Papageno in a production of The Magic Flute at the Salzburg Festival (issued by Decca as a DVD). Gerhaher gave guest performances in the title role in Henze’s Prinz von Homburg at the Theater an der Wien. Roles such as Mozart’s Don Giovanni in Frankfurt – where he has already sung Orfeo, Wolfram, Eisenstein and Pelléas – Posa in Don Carlo in Toulouse, or as Olivier in concert performances of Capriccio at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden testify to Gerhaher’s broad repertoire. Wolfram was and remains a constant role in his calendar in the opera houses in Berlin, Vienna, London and Munich. A milestone in Christian Gerhaher’s opera career was his debut in the title role of Alban Berg’s Wozzeck in September 2015 at Zurich Opera House in the exceptional staging by Andreas Homoki and conducted by Fabio Luisi (available from June 2016 as a DVD on the Accentus label). In the 2016/17 season Christian Gerhaher can be heard in two productions at the Bavarian State Opera: in January 2017 as Posa in Verdi’s Don Carlo, and in June as Wolfram von Eschenbach in Romeo Castellucci’s new production of Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser conducted by Kirill Petrenko.

Roomful of Teeth is a GRAMMY-winning vocal project dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice. Through study with masters from singing traditions the world over, the eight-voice ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an ongoing commissioning process, forges a new repertoire without borders.

Founded in 2009 by Brad Wells, the group gathers annually at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, Massachusetts, where they’ve studied Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, belting, Inuit throat singing, Korean P’ansori, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music and Persian classical singing with some of the world’s top performers and teachers. Commissioned composers include Rinde Eckert, Judd Greenstein, Caleb Burhans, Merrill Garbus (of tUnE-yArDs), William Brittelle, Anna Clyne, Fred Hersch, Wally Gunn, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Missy Mazzoli, Michael Harrison, Sam Amidon, and Ted Hearne.

Projects in 2015-2016 include The Colorado, a music-driven documentary film that explores water, land and survival in the Colorado River Basin (featuring former Kronos Quartet cellist Jeffrey Zeigler and Wilco’s Glenn Kotche); collaborations with NOW Ensemble, Kanye West and the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME); performances with the Seattle Symphony featuring Luciano Berio’s Sinfonia, appearances at new music festivals in the US, Mexico and Canada; and partnerships with over a dozen higher education institutions across the country.

JAZZ at Lyman: Brian Culbertson

Sponsored by: The John Lyman Center for the Performing Arts

Series on sale Saturday, August 20th at 11:00 am
Single jazz tickets go on sale Monday August 29th 11:00am

Brian Culbertson is always striving to push the boundaries of the jazz scene, which is evident by his forthcoming album, Funk! due out September 2016. The new set is a throwback to the stanky P-Funk records from back in the day combining infectious bass lines, greasy horn licks, sing-a-long hooks and of course, landing hard on the ‘One.’ This record is also a follow-up to his widely successful Bringing Back The Funk album from 2008, which was co-produced by the late Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire. With the 16albums and counting, Brian Culbertson always brings his very best in all his broad-ranging musical endeavors and this new project is going to be reinforced by his high energy live performance.

Power Boothe: Recent Work

Sponsored by: Fred Giampietro Gallery

Power Boothe has been making large abstract paintings, based on a grid since he first exhibited work in 1971, when his paintings and drawings were included in a show of ten young artists at the Guggenheim Museum. He has had 18 one-person exhibitions in New York City, where he lived and worked for thirty years. In 2001 he moved to Connecticut where he works in his Harwinton, CT studio.

Boothe regards, “painting as a form of thought.” He says, “I cannot remember a time when I was not drawing or making paintings. When he was four or five years old he acknowledges that he would draw, to the chagrin of his parents, on any surface he could find, including walls and furniture. He can’t remember a time that he was not making marks. “Today, my work continues to evolve and develop and surprise me; I am compelled to follow where it needs to go.” Boothe says, “making drawings and paintings seems as necessary to me as drinking water.”

“My paintings employ the grid but they are not about the grid, the grid is structure that I can work with and against. My work is my way of thinking about life as a tightrope I walk between two great forces; chaos and order. To pursue either alone; to impose order and not acknowledge chaos, as either a silent emptiness or energized disorder,” he says, “would seem to deny life’s fragility and its complications.” Boothe says, “From painting to painting, I simply want to find that balance between what it means for things to come together, while at the same time, they are coming apart.”

Locally, his work is represented in in the collections of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the New Britain Museum of American Art, as well as the Florence Griswold Museum. In a review of his 2014 exhibition at Five Points Gallery in Torrington, the art critic Tracy O’Shaughnessy wrote:

“It is as if Boothe is saying that even in the most paradisiacal vistas, we insist on an order, even if the order falls apart. Perhaps this marriage of intuition and order is a reminder that the visceral and the analytic are forever at loggerheads, the resolution of which can be beautiful to watch.”

The 7th Annual Mayo Bowl

Sponsored by: Blue Sky Sports and Entertainment

Super Bowl Champion and former New England Patriot’s linebacker and co-captain, Jerod Mayo, has hosted the annual celebrity bowling tournament at Kings in Dedham, MA since 2010. Each year the Mayo Bowl sells out all twenty bowling lanes, attracts well over 400 event attendees and reaches over 4.2 million individuals through social media. The event features a Red Carpet introduction, both silent auctions, and a chance to see past and present New England Patriots players bowl for charity. There are only 100 General Admission Party Passes being sold for the event. These passes include admission to Kings, complimentary hors d’oeurves and beer. This ticket does not include the holder to bowling. Holders must be 21 years of age or older. With the New England Patriot’s being reigning Super Bowl Champs, these tickets will sell out fast so be the first to get yours. All proceeds from the Mayo Bowl benefit Boston Medical Center (BMC).  In 2014, Jerod Mayo made a pledge to raise $1.5 million for BMC over the next three years - 2014 to 2017.  The 6th Annual Mayo Bowl contributed to this pledge by raising over $400,000.00!

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction 8 Week Series

Sponsored by: Kate Mitcheom

It can help us reduce stress and with it the disabling health effects that stress can bring. Each week of this interactive course will introduce a new skill and a new concept, teaching you to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life.

Mindfulness teaches us a way of taking charge of our lives, working with our own, unique challenges and demands of everyday life. Mindfulness can help us manage pain, illness, stress and can also make us better carers for those who need our help.

Achieving a well-balanced life means being aware of all aspects of ourselves: mind, body, heart and soul. Mindfulness-based stress reduction is intended to give you the understanding of how and when to call upon this inner capacity to live life in the moment.

MBSR is not for everyone, if you have questions, please check out these resources to find out more about whether MBSR is suitable for you.

MBSR OVERVIEW

This eight week course comprises three elements: an orientation session, weekly instruction and an all-day retreat.

Orientation: This is a mandatory part of the course and is your opportunity to decide whether MBSR is right for you before you are fully committed to the program.  We require a $100 deposit to attend orientation where you will meet fellow course participants and get a taste of the type of skills you will be learning.  Following orientation, if you decide not to go ahead, your deposit will be returned less a $25 administration fee.

Achieving a well-balanced life means being aware of all aspects of ourselves: mind, body, heart and soul. Mindfulness-based stress reduction is intended to give you the understanding of how and when to call upon this inner capacity to live life in the moment.

Kate’s teaching style is empowering and exciting. Guests who participate in this workshop will be taken on an empowering journey that will leave them with the one thing we all go on vacation to do: reduce stress.

This course includes floor-seated meditation and standing and lying yoga. All elements of the course can be easily, non-judgementally & discreetly adapted to be undertaken sitting in a chair for those who have mobility issues or if participants find being seated more comfortable or relaxing.


Included in the cost are all the course materials.

$100 Deposit Required to register and attend orientation
Balance of course fee: $400 due before the first full week of the course.

Full Day Retreat

This full day “mini retreat” is an opportunity to put many of the tools and skills that you have learned into practice. Our retreats are open to both MBSR participants and MBSR graduates. Our experience is that whilst some participants are hesitant about the full day, never having experienced a retreat, they leave feeling both energized and yet overwhelmingly calm. It is an important part of the course that is not to be missed.
