2019 Litchfield House Tour and Garden Stroll

Sponsored by: The Litchfield Aid of the Connecticut Junior Republic

A historic Open House Tour on July 12 and 13, 2019 is being planned by The Litchfield Aid of the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR).  The Aid’s Sixty-Seventh Open House Day will be a one-mile walking tour within the Borough of Litchfield, a National Historic Landmark District.*  The Tour will benefit the CJR, a Litchfield-based non-profit organization that helps children, youth and families in 13 locations across Connecticut.
The rain or shine benefit will begin with a Preview Tour and Party on Friday, July 12, followed by a tour from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, July 13.  The 2019 event will feature nine notable homes, the majority of which are located on Litchfield’s stately North and South Streets.  Representative of Litchfield’s 300-year history, the tour will feature houses that date from a relocated 1685 Saltbox and will take guests through three centuries, ending with a stunning 1954 Marcel Breuer Mid-Century Modern home. The homes on tour, including Georgian, Greek Revival, Colonial, Victorian-Italianate, and of course the prevailing Litchfield Colonial Revival style, have been selected to capture over 300 years of village life and architectural interest in the thriving, vibrant center of Northwestern Connecticut.  Further details about the event will be announced later this year. 
Established in 1911 by a small group of Litchfield women, The Litchfield Aid of CJR has supported the programs and facilities of the Connecticut Junior Republic for more than 100 years and currently has nearly 100 members.  The Aid conducted an annual Litchfield House Tour for 66 years, between the summers of 1934 and 2013.  During 2014 and 2017, the Aid conducted other successful local events. Since its inception, The Litchfield Aid’s activities have netted in excess of $2.5 million to support CJR programs and services.
* The Borough of Litchfield, Connecticut reflects over 300 years of American history throughout the structures comprising the Borough and its Historic District. In 1959, the entire Borough was designated a Historic District by a special act of the Connecticut General Assembly. Later, the Litchfield Historic District and several buildings received even more prestigious designations as National Historic Landmarks, the highest recognition for culturally and historically significant sites in the U.S.
Media releases later this year will provide further details on The Litchfield Aid’s Tercentennial Open House Day.  For promotional opportunities in advance of next year’s Open House event,  please contact Hedy Barton at the number below.
Founded in 1904, the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR) provides residential and community-based care, treatment, education and family support for vulnerable at-risk, special needs and troubled young people so they may become productive and fulfilled members of their homes, schools and communities.  Today, the organization’s combined programs serve approximately 2,000 boys and girls annually in 13 locations throughout Connecticut.
A private charitable organization, the Connecticut Junior Republic is accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).  CJR is supported by gifts from individuals, businesses, foundations and organizations, and through service contracts funded by the Judicial Branch Court Support Services Division (JBCSSD), the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS), and by Connecticut’s public schools.  For further information on CJR’s programs, please contact Hedy Barton, Director of Development and Public Relations (860) 567-9423, extension 252; or by email: hbarton@cjryouth.org.

Vigor and Wisdom: Mendelssohn and Brahms

Sponsored by: Music Haven

For the final concert of the series, The Haven String Quartet will explore two works by the Romantic masters Brahms and Mendelssohn as well as share the stage with several graduating senior Music Haven students for a movement of Mendelssohn’s exuberant Octet, written when the composer was a mere 16 years old. Mendelssohn’s Quartet in D Major, Op. 44 No. 1, in contrast to the octet, highlights Mendelssohn’s later style; his energetic themes and development, his puckish scherzos and incidental music, and his memorable and poignant lyricism. The concert will also feature Music Haven Resident Violinist Patrick Doane on Brahms’ Viola Quintet in G Major, Op. 111, a masterwork known for its soaring opening cello melody, orchestral textures, melancholic slow movement, and folk-inspired finale. Though Brahms went on to write several more chamber and piano works, it was the quintet in G Major he intended to be his last.

Climate Week 2019

Sponsored by: New Haven Leon Sister City Project

Climate Health Education Project (CHEP) is a project that broadens climate change awareness and engages in concrete action to cut greenhouse gases, improve health, and reduce energy use and expense in New Haven area schools. CHEP is also a comprehensive web resource that schools can use throughout the year to plan, create, and lead activities that will motivate students and teachers to act on climate change.
Climate change has rising impacts on hurricanes, forest fire season, droughts, the rising of sea levels, and ocean acidification. CHEP pulled together a variety of activities that can be easily incorporated into classrooms and schools. The website also includes activity options: information tables, guest speakers, assemblies, climate change awareness fairs, writing contests, banner-making contests, classroom activities, and Earth Olympics.. Schools are also encouraged to come up with their own activities, as they know their school environment best. The activities done by the students and teachers will educate them about present and future impacts of climate disruptions, help explore why it’s urgent to take action now, and also will teach each other about how to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create healthier families and communities, and improve energy independence.
We are planning for Climate Week to be the week of April 27th to May 4th, 2019, and are inviting all New Haven area high schools to plan special climate change activities. We would love to hear about new suggestions or recommendations for activities. The activities can range from English to Social Studies to Science to Art activities. For new ideas and more information on Climate Health Education Project (CHEP) or Climate Week please visit https://www.climateeducationnh.org/ or contact climateeducationnh@gmail.com.

Deep Purple took a quantum leap when the then 20-year-old Glenn Hughes was seconded from British funk-rock outfit Trapeze in mid-1973. As bassist and co-vocalist (with David Coverdale), he helped steer the legendary rock group in the progressive direction of Burn (1974), Stormbringer (1974) and Come Taste the Band (1975), while touring the world for three years.

His solo debut album Play Me Out (1977) preceded later albums with Black Sabbath and Gary Moore. The last 25 years have seen a rush of solo work and collaborations for the ‘Voice of Rock’ including mega hit America: What Time Is Love? with the KLF in 1992, appearances with Joe Satriani / G3 and four critically acclaimed top selling studio albums released between 2010 and 2018 with rock super group Black Country Communion featuring Joe Bonamassa, Derek Sherinian & Jason Bonham. Glenn was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 20l6 as a member of Deep Purple.

Taking a page and inspiration from the Blackmore/Coverdale/Hughes/Lord/Paice Deep Purple MK 3 California Jam and Made in Europe era, the upcoming live show features the Purple classics Burn, Stormbringer, Might Just Take Your Life and Mistreated, amongst others, plus tracks previously never performed live by the original MK 3 line-up.

Classic material from the Tommy Bolin MK 4 period is also featured, including Getting’ Tighter – Hughes’ funk rock extravaganza extraordinaire, plus the brooding Coverdale /Hughes masterpiece You Keep On Moving.

Deep Purple MK 2 hits Highway Star and Smoke on the Water are also featured, because, as Glenn points out, ‘’I did play both these numbers during my time with Purple and they were mainstays of the live set when I was in the band. As my manager pointed out to me, the first time Smoke on The Water was ever played live at Madison Square Garden was when David and I were in the band in 1974. I love singing Highway Star, too.”

Continues Glenn, “A few years back, I cut a barnstorming version of Highway Star for the Machine Head anniversary tribute album with my good friends Steve Vai and Chad Smith. I’m not playing anything on the forthcoming tour that I didn’t either play live or record in the studio with Purple.”

Laurie Berkner

Sponsored by: Wall Street Theater

Best-selling, award-winning children’s musician Laurie Berkner has been a longtime fixture on TV’s Nick Jr., Sprout, and NBCUniversal Kids channels, and her original songs, albums (twelve so far), DVDs, music videos, and books leave no doubt: Laurie Berkner is the uncrowned queen of children’s music and the power behind the progressive “kindie rock” movement. What sets her apart? Her music speaks to kids without talking down to them, charming youngsters without boring grown-ups. Laurie finds inspiration in her audience. “I want to create songs that matter for children,” she says. “I was singing once and saw a four-year-old girl shut her eyes and start swaying to the music. I thought, ‘That’s the reason I got into music.’ It keeps me wanting to do more.” Laurie’s “Greatest Hits” solo show features popular hits like “Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz),” “Victor Vito,” “We Are The Dinosaurs,” “Pig On Her Head,” and “Rocketship Run,” plus – as a special treat for fans – a few well-loved Laurie Berkner songs that are not often heard at Laurie’s full-band concerts!

Adrian Belew

Sponsored by: Wall Street Theater

Adrian Belew is a legendary guitarist well-known for his diverse travels around the musical map. He is a multiinstrumentalist whose solo records are critically acclaimed. His moving singing voice and prolific songwriting has endeared a loyal fan base of music lovers. His music is being discovered everyday by more and more listeners thirsty for great music with a creative standard not often pushed by the commercial music industry.

For more than a decade the Adrian Belew Power Trio stunned audiences around the world.
Now Adrian is ready to re-invent his live show with a new quartet which includes Jordan Perlson on drums, Saul Zonana on keyboards, guitar, and vocals, and bassist extraordinaire Julie Slick.

The tour dates will be in support of Adrian’s newest release “POP-SIDED”, coming March 2019. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy master musicians playing great songs and having a ball!

Adrian describes the show as, “a more complete picture of most things I’ve done. More songs, new songs from the award-winning FLUX app, King Crimson material I haven’t played for years, and a dose of classic Power Trio. It’s my intention to make this the best Adrian Belew show ever!”

Adrian first appeared on the guitar-world radar when he toured with Frank Zappa who later said, “Adrian reinvented electric guitar”. Adrian’s signature tones, unique use of effects and whammy bar remains completely different, and his techniques continue to be a huge influence on today’s guitarists. He was guitarist, songwriter and frontman Progressive Rock Powerhouse King Crimson for over 30 years. “Discipline”, Adrian’s first record with King Crimson, is listed among the most important rock records ever made.

The Music Of Jesus Christ Superstar

HSQ and Friends: Piano Masterworks 

Sponsored by: Music Haven

The Haven String Quartet will be joined by Music Haven Resident Violinist Patrick Doane and renowned Grammy-nominated pianist Andrius Žlabys for their third series concert featuring the soaring and timeless Brahms B major Piano Trio, the explosive Franck Piano Quintet, as well as the East Coast Premiere of Andrius Žlabys’ “Movement for String Quartet and Piano.” Written when the composer was a mere 20 years old, Brahms’ B Major Piano trio comes from a period of great personal and musical growth; the composer recently befriended Robert and Clara Schumann as well as famed composers Berlioz and Liszt, and had begun traveling around Europe presenting his compositions to great success. Known for it’s soaring lines, exuberance, and deep beauty, Brahms returned to the work some 35 years later with thorough revisions, and the trio is a true blend of Brahms’ youthful vigor and masterful nuance. Franck’s Piano Quintet in F Minor, dedicated to his dear friend and composer Saint-Saëns, is full of fiery drama, and is one of Franck’s most frequently performed pieces. Lauded at it’s premiere, critics hailed the work for its “torrid emotional power,” and its “disturbing vitality.”

March Lunchtime Book Discussion @ Derby Public Library

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

In celebration of Women’s History Month, the featured book is “The Other Einstein” by Marie Benedict.  It offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein’s enormous shadow. It is the story of Einstein’s wife, Mileva Mari?a, a brilliant physicist in her own right, whose contribution to the special theory of relativity is hotly debated and may have been inspired by her own profound and very personal insight.  Benedict makes a strong case that the brilliant woman behind Einstein was integral to his success, and creates a rich historical portrait in the process.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulations desk.  Drop-ins are welcome—no registration required. For further information contact the Reference Desk @ 203-736-1482.

The Music Of Cream

Sponsored by: Wall Street Theater

THE PEDIGREE OF CREAM IN A NEW MULTI-MEDIA CONCERT EXPERIENCE

Ginger Baker. Jack Bruce. Eric Clapton.

Cream was a chemical explosion like no other, the blueprint for every supergroup to follow and the heavy blues precursor to Hendrix, Zeppelin and so much more. Fifty years since their earth-shaking debut album, the bloodlines of that hallowed trilogy come together to pay tribute to Cream’s legendary four-album reign over the psychedelic frontier of the late 1960s. Kofi BAKER (son of Ginger) and Malcolm BRUCE (son of Jack) unite with Will JOHNS (Eric’s nephew by Marriage and son of Zeppelin/ Stones/ Hendrix engineer Andy) to unleash the lightning that electrified a generation. Feel the fire and the freedom of “Spoonful”, “Strange Brew”, “Sunshine of Your Love”, “White Room”, “Crossroads” and “Badge” — performed by master musicians whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit and legacy.

EXPERIENCE a Once-In-a-lifetime concert salute to the most innovative and explosive supergroup of all time, in the hands of those that knew them best.

WATCH as they interplay live with their fathers on the big screen; classic moments in rock history brought back to life.

LISTEN as they share personal insights and stories, complete with rare, yet to be seen family footage and photographs.

KOFI BAKER
Kofi’s first performance was with his father, jazz-rock legend Ginger Baker, on live TV at the age of six. He’s since played drums behind Tom Jones, Jack Bruce, Steve Marriott, and as half of a polyrhythmic powerhouse with his father across Europe in the 1980s. More recently, Kofi has played the Extreme Guitar Tour with Uli Jon Roth, Vinny Appice and Vinnie Moore, and joined with Malcolm Bruce to rekindle the spirit of Cream to critical acclaim on stage in US and UK. His own albums include Lost City and Abstract Logic, with Jonas Hellborg and Shawn Lane.

The Marshall Tucker Band

Sponsored by: Wall Street Theater

In the early fall of 1973, The Marshall Tucker Band was still a young and hungry group out to prove themselves every time they hit the stage. “We were a bunch of young guys who didn’t know any boundaries,” says founding member and longtime lead singer Doug Gray. As it turned out, the collective talents of The Marshall Tucker Band took them very far indeed.

Today, the band records on its own RAMBLIN’ RECORDS Label (distributed by Sony/RED) and continues to release new and previously unreleased material. Still led today by founding member and lead singer Doug Gray, they represent a time and place in music that will never be duplicated. Gray is quick to credit the band’s current dynamic members with carrying on the timeless essence of The Marshall Tucker Band sound. Current members include the highly respected drummer B.B. Borden, a former member of both Mother’s Finest and The Outlaws, multi instrumentalist Marcus Henderson of Macon, Georgia, plays flute, saxophone and keyboards in addition to lead and background vocals, Pat Elwood on bass guitar, and Rick Willis on lead guitar and vocals, both of Spartanburg SC, are disciples of the Caldwell Brothers. Acclaimed lead guitarist and vocalist Chris Hicks recently rejoined the band after a two-year absence. Together they present a powerful stage presence as they continue to tour the country and continue to be powerful force in the world of music.

The Marshall Tucker Band got its start in Spartanburg, S.C. when Gray teamed up with Tommy Caldwell and Toy Caldwell, Paul T. Riddle, George McCorkle and Jerry Eubanks, borrowing the name “Marshall Tucker” from a piano tuner whose name was found on a key ring in their old rehearsal space. In 1972, they signed with Capricorn Records, the same label that guided The Allman Brothers Band, Wet Willie, and others to national fame. The MTB opened shows for The Allman Brothers in 1973, and the following year, they began to headline their own shows across America due to the platinum-plus sales of their debut album. They toured constantly playing sheds, stadiums, theaters, fairs, and festivals.

In years to come, The Marshall Tucker Band would wow critics and influence major country acts like Alabama, The Kentucky Headhunters, Confederate Railroad, and Travis Tritt with its definitive blend of rock, rhythm & blues, jazz, country, and gospel. Now, thanks to the expanding scope of today’s music, a new generation of fans is learning what the rest of their fans have known for so long- that good music knows no boundaries. Along the way, the band has recorded 22 studio albums, three DVDs, three live albums and many compilations.
In 1980, Tommy Caldwell died as a result of injuries from an auto accident. In 1984, Toy Caldwell, George McCorkle, and Paul Riddle decided to retire. Doug Gray and Jerry Eubanks with the blessings of the other three continued to record and perform as The Marshall Tucker Band. 1n 1993 Toy Caldwell, who wrote the majority of their songs, passed away, as did George McCorkle in 2007. Jerry Eubanks retired in 1996 and Doug Gray continues to lead the current band of fine musicians winning new young fans as well as satisfying the loyal fans of several generations.

She created makeup and masks for opera-themed Nike and Pepsi commercials featuring Charles Barkley and Michael Jackson, and contributed masks to the Disney film The Haunted Mansion and an ad campaign for Max Factor that featured Madonna.

At her studio in Cummington, Massachusetts, www.BKSculptureStudio.com, Kravetz creates both theater and fine art masks.
