An Original Theatrical Journey!  Exploring what makes something dramatic?  What is drama? And what role does “drama” play in our lives at any age?

Any story can be told in a presentational way, often with a dramatic flair!  With the teacher, children use any skills they already possess — music, dance, visual arts, public speaking, circus, magic, etc., to create a piece of theatre that is one-of-a-kind unique!  It’s a talent show, more or less, highlighting your children — giving them a moment to be in the spotlight as themselves or as a character in a play… It’s all about inclusion, celebrating their comfort levels and contribution to the whole!  Always different, always dynamic, never short on the DRAMA!!!!

Denise Reis Brazilian Guitarist and Singer

Click Here for Tickets

 

Denise Reis is the acclaimed Brazilian singer, songwriter and guitar ist who received a standing ovation by His Holiness the Dalai Lama! She is the “complete artist”, using her talent to promote Brazilian music throughout the world. With an impeccably tuned and colorful voice, Denise covers a broad range of styles, from Popular Brazilian Music (MPB) to World Music and Jazz.

 

A truly gifted stylist, one of Denise’sunique techniques is her ability to reproduce the sound of a trumpet with her voice!  This amazing artistic characteristic, combined with her singing voice and beautiful guitar playing has opened many doors, resulting in several invitations for TV interviews, such as Programa do Jô, Hebe, Amaury Jr., Adriane Galisteu, and others.

 

After much success in Brazil, Denise released 2 CDs: Chá de Hortelã com Caviar e Alfândega, both extremely well received by the audience and the critics. In 2007 her international career begun and she performed in countries such as Portugal, Ukraine, Senegal, Venezuela, Israel, Canada and USA.

 

Recently Denise had the honor to be invited by a North American Organization to compose a song in Portuguese and present it live to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in an event with more than 7.000 people in attendance at the Palace Theater, in Albany (NY).

 

Since 2014 Denise has taken up residence in New York City where she has regular presentations at well-known venues. With no labels or limiting definitions, it is fair to say that Denise Reis communicates her music in a way that transcends any cultural barrier. Her art is in itself a universal language, in which emotion, technique, perfectionism and sophistication meet each other in harmony.

 

 

“One of the most musical people I have ever met” – Jô Soares

 

“Denise Reis sings with a voice of a true veteran singer. Her interpretation is wonderful, colouring and turning even more beautiful any song.

Her vocal cords are never out of tune and her throat is privileged. I could even say: Her throat is magic” – Tito Madi.

We are using our freshly upgraded kitchen to offer an intimate evening meal downstairs in our newly renovated bistro room. When we say "intimate" we also mean seating is limited to 25 people.  Reservations only, and there is just the one seating at 7 pm.

All proceeds from this event will go toward the next project at THE HALL, which Greg and Gary are so excited about they are working on it whenever they can.  They are calling it a "beer garden" .  Ummm..., we do not yet have a beer and wine license so for now it's really just  a rock wall with a patio.  A beer/wine license will be in our future but not yet. Come check it out, Greg will happily show you the progress they are making.

Charlotte Blake Alston, storyteller at 3:00 Saturday May 6th

Stories and Songs in the Oral Tradition
For hundreds of years throughout the African continent, people gathered and told stories. The tradition may be the strongest in the West African countries of Senegal, Gambia, Guinea and Mali where history was preserved and is still passed down orally through the words and music of the griots or jalis. Stories were the way the beliefs, mythology, cultural identity, history, and shared community values of a people were taught and preserved. The tradition continued when Africans were brought to America. Charlotte selects from her wide repertoire of stories and songs from the African and African American oral traditions.

Charlotte breathes life into traditional and contemporary stories from African and African American oral and cultural traditions. Her solo performances are often enhanced with traditional instruments such as djembe, mbira, shekere or the 21-stringed kora. She has been a featured narrator for several orchestras and conductors including The Philadelphia Orchestra, The Orchestra of St. Luke’s, The Cleveland Orchestra, the Saint Louis Symphony and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. She represented Carnegie Hall in 2003 when she hosted a series of concerts in Miyazaki, Japan with the Eddie Arron String Quartet and fellow storyteller, Motoko.

Charlotte was one of four Americans selected to perform and present at the first International Storytelling Field Conference in Ghana and was a featured artist at the Second Int’l Festival in Cape Town, South Africa. In the summer of 2005, she was the sole American selected to perform on a main stage at the STIMMEN: Voices Festival in Basel, Switzerland and The Cape Clear Island Festival in Ireland. She was the Director of “In the Tradition…” the 14th National Festival of Black Storytelling. She is a recipient of the Zora Neale Hurston Award, the highest award bestowed by the National Association of Black Storytellers.

Pamela J Wallace  Industrial weeds, 16.5" x 44" x 10", mixed media, handmade abaca paper, iron, wire, sheet metal, wood

In my sculptures I combine organic, ephemeral materials such as paper, thread, fabric, and wax with durable industrial materials like iron, concrete, and wood. Concerned with the smallest connections and incident of detail, I show evidence of my own hand in a pencil mark or a stray cut, as history of actions taken to make my forms. I am drawn to the way an element reveals the substance of its heft, its shape, and its texture.  Pamela J. Wallace  

Stephen Reynolds   Impact Buffer, 2010  

Stephen Reynolds   Impact Buffer, 2010  

Composed principally of wood and steel, Stephen Reynolds’ sculptures reference architecture, anatomy and scientific instruments. He employs contrasts between the warm imperfection of the archaic and hand-made, with the cold and rational precision of modern machine-made objects. In these pieces, fabrication processes that pre-date the middle ages such as forged steel are combined with references to 20th century scientific and architectural objects.

 It is in the practical object, where intellect and material merge, that Reynolds finds inspiration. The process of making is revealed by welded metal seams and rough-hewn wooden surfaces referring to the beauty of practical, functional objects where appearances are often secondary. The use of dissimilar materials and abrupt transitions between parts suggest ambiguous narratives, allowing a multiplicity of interpretations while always celebrating the beauty of utility.

Red Tail Ring on Saturday August 6th

Tickets at door only at this time.  Online sales closed

Red Tail Ring at THE HALL at Panther Creek Arts on Saturday August 6th

RED TAIL RING is the musical brainchild of two old-time-minded Michiganders – Michael Beauchamp and Laurel Premo. The collaboration blends the loving attention of revivalist fervor with the playful creativity of starting from scratch. Whether rendering a traditional tune or one of their many original compositions, the duo infuses each song with musical imagination, haunting harmonies and instrumental artistry on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, jawharp, and plain-old foot stomping. “We love pushing the boundaries of what a traditional song can be,” says Beauchamp. “It informs how we write our original songs. There’s a real energy exchange between the old and the new.”

Jeremy Kittel & Cillian Vallely with Ryan McGiver

A rare collaboration between violinist/fiddler Jeremy Kittel & Uilleann Piper/whistle player Cillian Vallely.

Jeremy Kittel

Jeremy Kittel has earned a reputation as one of the most exceptional violinists and fiddlers of his generation. With tremendous musicality; a rare mastery of styles as diverse as jazz, Scottish and Irish fiddle, bluegrass, classical music, and more; a unique compositional voice, and an “exhilarating stage presence” (Strings Magazine), Kittel inspires listeners and fans worldwide through his solo work and collaborations.

As a leader, he performs with his own Jeremy Kittel Band (quartet), as well as intimate duo and trio formats, and also as a soloist with orchestras. In collaboration, he is frequently called upon by some of today’s most influential and vibrant artists in a variety of genres; he has recorded and performed with musical giants My Morning Jacket, Jars of Clay, Mark O’Connor, Abigail Washburn, Camera Obscura, Bela Fleck, Laura Veirs, Aoife O’Donovan, Paquito D’Rivera, Stefon Harris, and many more. He also recently completed a five-year full time position in the Grammy-winning Turtle Island String Quartet.

His most recent solo recording, Chasing Sparks (Compass), features his original compositions with a stellar cast of musicians including special guests Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile, and Mike Marshall, and has garnered rave reviews among acoustic music circles worldwide.

Committed to nurturing future generations of musicians, he is a passionate clinician and educator and regularly teaches at programs such as Belmont Strings Crossings, International Music Academy of Pilsen, Mark O’Connor Strings Conference, Swannanoa Gathering, and schools and universities worldwide.

Cillian Vallely

Starting at age 7, Cillian Vallely learned the whistle and uilleann pipes from his parents Brian and Eithne at the Armagh Pipers Club, a group that for over 4 decades has fostered the revival of traditional music in the north of Ireland.  Since leaving college, he has  played professionally and has toured all over North America and Europe in addition to Japan, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia.

Since 1999, Cillian has been a member of the acclaimed Irish band “Lunasa”, with whom he has recorded 7 albums and played at many major festivals including The Hollywood Bowl, Glastonbury, Womad, Edmonton & Winnipeg Folk Festivals, and Lorient Interceltique.  He has also performed and toured with “Riverdance”, Natalie Merchant, Tim O Brien & Mary Chapin-Carpenter in “The Crossing”, New York-based “Whirligig”, and the “Celtic Jazz Collective” with David O’Rourke, Lewis Nash and Peter Washington.  In the past couple of years, he has worked on various collaborations between traditional and classical music, along with his brother Niall and the composer Micheal O’Suilleabhain.  In 2013, Cillian and the other members of Lunasa recorded a groundbreaking album with the Ireland’s national RTE Concert Orchestra.

He has recorded on over 50 other albums including “Callan Bridge” with his brother Niall, “On Common Ground” with Kevin Crawford and various guest spots with Bruce Springsteen, Natalie Merchant,  Alan Simon’s “Excalibur” project with Fairport Convention and Moody Blues, “GAIA” with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, and Karan Casey.  He has recently recorded on two movie soundtracks, “Irish Jam” and “The Golden Boys” and played uilleann pipes on the BBC’s “Flight of the Earls” soundtrack.  In January 2014, his piping and whistle playing was featured  on the new Bruce Springsteen album “High Hopes”, a recording which topped the charts in 14 countries.

Ryan McGiver

 

Accompanying them will be New York state singer and guitarist, Ryan McGiver, known on either side of the Atlantic for his unique blend open of string guitar and
breathy vocals. Over the past decade he has performed
extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia and his music
has been showcased on the BBC, RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, NPR and The
Lantern Journal.

He has recorded and shared the stage with an eclectic blend of folk
and rock musicians including Susan McKeown, Jolie Holland, Pádraig
Rynne, Doug Wieselman, Vishtèn, Cillian Vallely and Shahzad Ismaily to
name a few. His recent debut solo album entitled 'Troubled in Mind' is
receiving international acclaim. fRoots Magazine describes it as “An
absorbing and plaintive collection of mainly Appalachian ballads
filtered through a myriad musical influences and sensibilities.”

Live Music: Swing Jazz Trio:

Tamar Korn, Dennis Lichtman & Matt Munisteri

Tamar Korn (vocals), Matt Munisteri (guitar), and Dennis Lichtman (clarinet and mandolin) are like-minded collectors and masterful interpreters of an eclectic array of American acoustic music from the first half of the 20th century.  They were drawn together by their shared desire to perform old songs with freshness, spontaneity, and improvisational creativity - a far cry from period-style recreations.  Though the three have all performed with each other in various projects and combinations for years, this is a rare trio performance.
