Singer James Taylor plans 2nd benefit concert in Great Barrington to aid Haiti earthquake relief

By The Associated Press

January 20, 2010, 12:53PM

GREAT BARRINGTON – Singer James Taylor has scheduled a second benefit concert in Massachusetts to aid earthquake relief efforts in Haiti after the first show sold out.

Taylor announced on his Web site that he’ll play a second show on Saturday at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington.

The first show, scheduled for Friday, sold out in 90 minutes Tuesday and raised $300,000 – $150,000 in ticket sales, which was then matched by Taylor and his wife, Kim.

Both shows will benefit Partners in Health, a Boston-based group that brings modern medical care to poor nations and has been working in Haiti for more than 20 years.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, who lives in nearby Lenox, says on his Web site that a second concert “is the least I can do.”

Techno Lives!
The Mount Holyoke Symphony Orchestra hosts a multimedia extravaganza including live electronic sound, film, dance and interactive video. Exploring the theme of technology in the lives of people, the production begins with the inspiration of generated by three works of music for orchestra and electronics. Inspired by the music of the Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara's Cantus Arcticus (Song of the Arctic), MHC student Yiwen Gong '16 has directed and produced three short films exploring the theme. The first film, is a meditation on the Kino-eye theory of the Russian Filmmaker, Dziga Vertov. Using historical documentary footage, the film explores in chronological order, the introduction of technologies over time and our interactions with them. The second, is a short abstract video exploring the life of an ordinary person in everyday life. Shot from a first-person perspective, the film explores the way in which our lives today are saturated with technology. The third and final film is a dreamscape exploring a young woman's reservations about her relationship with technology. We then explore the world of live electronic music with the world premiere of Grey Noise LItanies by valley composer Gregory W. Brown. Featuring music for turntable, digitally enhanced solo cello and orchestra, the piece plays with the line of separation between the analog and the digital world of sound. Finally, the music of John Adams's Fearful Symmetries inspires an original video by world-renowned video artist, Elliott Forrest, and a new dance featuring video by Saulius Slezas and choregraphy by Rose Flachs. Forrest has become a regular staple of video presentations by such familiar names as the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the New York Philharmonic. Flachs new work will speak to the developing body of research encompassing the effects of technology as a means of communication and socialization. In a collaborative project including a visual designer, choreographer and seven dancers, Flachs uses projection, sensors, cellphones and stop-motion animation together with dance to explore how our society is caught in a web of technology, examining the question of how a persons addiction to their cell phones affects their ability to meet and mingle with others.

Chef's Studio with Gabriel Bremer
Our Chef's Studio guest chef series makes a triumphant return on Monday, February 29th! Chef Gabriel Bremer (formerly of Salts) joins Chef Louis DiBiccari in the kitchen for a collaborative 4-course meal.  Menu Coming Soon (think charcuterie, beet salad, gnocchi & more) About Chef Gabriel Bremer Gabriel Bremer trained as a classical percussionist; as a young musician, he looked to the restaurant industry to support his musical aspirations. At the age of eighteen he began his cooking career in earnest, working under James Beard award-winning chef Sam Hayward at Fore Street restaurant in Portland, Maine. Bremer went on to open his own short-lived restaurant, Gabriel’s, in Portland, Maine, and then moved to Boston in 2000 to become sous chef under another James Beard award-winning chef, Jody Adams, at Rialto. Bremer opened Salts in March, 2004, with his fiancée, Analia Verolo, a veteran server at Fore Street and at Hamersley’s Bistro in Boston. At Salts, located in Central Square in Cambridge, Gabriel focused completely on his customers, a combination of neighborhood dwellers and sophisticated out-of-towners who seek out the finest restaurants all over the world. Greatly influenced by chefs like Michel Bras and Ferrán Adrià, Gabriel’s cuisine at Salts pushed the borders of contemporary dining, but it was always based on familiar and comforting flavors. Full schedule of Chef's Studios coming soon.

LEXI WEEGE Live in The Grand Hall at Workshop13 ~ Special Guest ANDY GOULD
Door @ 6:30PM Show @ 7PM $15 Adv(((ance) $18 Door Chris Peles in Association with Workshop13 Proudly Presents another installment of the Singer/Songwriter Series in The Grand Hall featuring LEXI WEEGE accompanied by guitarist TOM LeBEAU with Special Guest ANDY GOULD. Lexi Weeges music is passionate, alive, awakened; the narrative of a woman unashamed of her desires and unafraid to seize control. Weege conjures up decadent scenes of the roaring twenties with her stellar voice and jazz-influenced compositions. Constantly touring, performing, and creating, Lexi has released a full-length album, "Virgin" (2013) and more recently, "Sweet Moon", a '7 record, both recorded live to tape. Weege's insistence on analogue recording is evidence of her passion for authenticity in her music. "With the confidence to throw her all into the circus ring of theatricality, Lexi Weege stamps the mark of a true performer. (Bluesbunny.com)" "Weeges powerful voice is an expressive tool that can go from a sultry purr to a guttural roar...Weege writes from the perspective of a woman who is in control and knows what she wants" -Sheryl Hunter, Greenfield Recorder "Lexi Weege is a Jazz/Blues musician and vocalist of unparalleled ability and power. She entrances all who come within earshot." -Collin Chmielowiec - We Are One Photographic Blog ANDY GOULD, aka ANDYHASABAND: Too few members to be a band; Too much sound for the usual solo singer. Andy Gould, of the punk band FUNZZLE, finds himself straddling a line between classic country and rock. At once gentle and raucous, Gould's melodies are sure to ring in your head long after show's end. Andy's debut solo album is due later this year.

TCN’s UPSTART Roundtable: Music Innovation with Panos Panay Founder of Sonicbids & Berklee ICE
Thursday February 25th | 5:00 - 6:00pm | Venture Cafe, One Broadway, Cambridge, MA (map) TCN UpStart Roundtables are monthly gatherings at the Venture Cafe that bring together Boston-area early-stage startups and seasoned entrepreneurs. This free series with The Capital Network, Venture Cafe, and Silicon Valley Bank is a great opportunity for you to ask burning questions about starting a company and meet other like-minded entrepreneurs in a casual cafe setting. This week our theme is Music Innovation - and there could be no other better to discuss this than Panos Panay, the Founding Managing Director of Berklee ICE (Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship) as well as a passionate entrepreneur and active startup mentor in the creative media space. As the founder of Sonicbids, he created the leading platform for bands to book gigs and market themselves online, building a subscriber network of 550,000 bands and 35,000 promoters from over 100 countries. He led the company as CEO for 13 years, from its inception until after its successful acquisition by Backstage LLC, in a deal backed by Guggenheim Partners. Speakers: Panos is widely credited for spotting and capitalizing early on three distinct emerging trends in the music business over the last decade: the shift to a primarily online means of marketing; the emergence of an "artistic middle class”; and the shift from a record-label funded industry to a consumer brand-funded music business. He writes weekly about startups and entrepreneurship for blogs and publications such as Huffington Post, Forbes, WSJ Accelerators and Fast Company; and guest lectures at universities including MIT Engineering, Boston University, Brown University, and Wharton School of Business. He speaks often at industry events like SXSW, MIDEM and TEDx.

He is a die-hard supporter of English football club Arsenal F.C. Awards include: Fast Company's "Fast 50" honor; Inc Magazine's "Inc 500”; Mass Hi-Tech All Stars; Berklee College’s Distinguished Alumnus Award; and Boston Business Journal’s “40 under 40” and BostInno's 50 on Fire. Sonicbids and Panos were also profiled in a chapter in the Financial Times-published book "Outsmart" by best-selling author Jim Champy. Specialties: Refusing to accept that there should be a trade-off between your passion and the way you make a living. Pete McDonald is the Relationship Manager the Emerging Technology Practice at Silicon Valley Bank. Pete has over 20 years of experience working with startups and works primarily with early stage Technology and Life Science companies.

Introduction to 3D Modeling: Solidworks WINTER II 2016
Description: 3D modeling software is used worldwide in professional settings like engineering, animation, product design, architecture, and more. Designing parts in 3D modeling environments allows you to develop an idea in full before you cut any material, and then either make parts automatically on computer-enabled tools (such as the CNC mills, routers, plasma cutters, and 3D printers available at Artisan's Asylum) or develop a set of drawings that allow you or other people to create your parts from plans. In this class, students will learn 2D sketching techniques, 3D modeling techniques for parts and assemblies, and 2D display of 3D models in drawings, using Solidworks 2012. Students will have opportunities to model and recreate real parts and assemblies, create drawings that can be used in computer-controlled manufacturing equipment, and prepare files for 3D printing. Class Goals: By the end of class, students will be able to create well-constrained 2D sketches, 3D parts and assemblies, and 2D representations of 3D parts and assemblies. Students will know how to create files for transfer to CNC tools, and will know how to prepare files for 3D printing. Prerequisites: Experience with a Windows environment. Students must be at least 18 years old. Materials Provided: Solidworks software and example objects for modeling will be provided. What to Bring: If possible, students should bring a project or an idea for projects to model in class as an informative exercise. Instructor Biography: Douglas Ruuska is a recovering physicist whose pendulum has swung back, once again, to the realm of art. He has worked at CERN and Fermi Lab, the Antarctic and many, many places in between. He has done such things as DAQ and control coding, stained glass, motorcycle and Landrover mechanic, Bio-Tech instrumentation design, 1-MeV neutron radiation damage studies, photography all over the planet and kinetic sculptures such as his Galaxy and Let's Go Fly a Bike for the Burning Man Festival, among other things. He tends to stay busy and enjoys good beer very much...   Made Possible By: Solidworks & CADD Edge Solidworks is a computer-aided design tool that allows you to quickly design and revise 2D or 3D parts, assemblies, and dimensional drawings of parts and assemblies with minimal training. It is used by over 1.7 million product designers worldwide to design and create manufactured parts, from the introductory hobbyist level to top end engineering firms. CADD Edge has been offering SolidWorks CAD Software since 1995. Each year since then, SolidWorks has named CADD Edge, Inc. the largest SolidWorks provider in the Northeastern United States.

My Darling Clementine
My Darling Clementine are husband and wife team Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish, and as leading lights in the British country music scene have, to date, released two highly acclaimed albums, "How Do You Plead?"(2011) and "The Reconciliation?" (2013), garnering a growing legion of fans including such famous figures as Graham Norton, Bob Harris and Paul OGrady whove praised the couple while playing their songs on their radio shows. At first glance, the bygone sounds and imagery of the group might suggest something out-and-out nostalgic, but scratch the retro surface of the record sleeves or the stage clothes and youll find an act as pertinent and as compelling as any other 21st century proposition. But while looking to the future, theres nothing wrong with nodding to the past. Inspired by the classic duets of George Jones and Tammy Wynette, their blueprint was to make records that sound like they were from the late 60s or early 70s and to embrace the whole countrypolitan look of that time. What initially drew us to George and Tammy is that they had an ageless quality to them, says Michael. They were making records in their thirties, forties and beyond which was refreshing for us. Thats a common factor between their music and our own songs- they were written by people whove been around the block a few times. Boston's own modern country/soul duo Juliet & Michael Dinallo will be opening the show. ATWOOD'S IS A MIX OF SEATING AND STANDING ROOM. PURCHASING A TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE SEATING.

Cape Breton style dance and concert with PEI fiddler Richard Wood accompanied by Gordon Belsher on guitar at the authentic Downeast venuue of the Canadian-American Club. Todd MacLean, Charlottetown Guardian on Richard Wood - "Picture it: A graceful tune to start off a set, with beautiful zippering lines, played while caressing the fiddle to his ear, eyes closed, off in a serene realm in a dance with time, as he lures us there with him. Then a cutting strathspey to kick it into a higher gear as he whoops out loud and smiles at the crowd a total of six reels in a row, all executed with flawless precision, pounding in rhythm, intoxicating in a firing energy, which brings about numerous fits of spontaneous applause from the crowd who spring to their feet in ovation immediately at the sets end. Wood simply dropped every single jaw in the house certainly making us all proclaim he is back, and he is better than ever." Based in Prince Edward Island on Canada's east coast, Gordon Belsher has been entertaining audiences in Canada and around the world for more than 40 years performing at concerts, ceilidhs, conventions, and pubs. As accompanist and featured vocalist with Prince Edward Island fiddlers Richard Wood and Cynthia MacLeod, Gordon has toured extensively across Canada, in the U.S., the U.K., Europe, Japan and Australia.

Techno Lives!
The Mount Holyoke Symphony Orchestra hosts a multimedia extravaganza including live electronic sound, film, dance and interactive video. Exploring the theme of technology in the lives of people, the production begins with the inspiration of generated by three works of music for orchestra and electronics. Inspired by the music of the Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara's Cantus Arcticus (Song of the Arctic), MHC student Yiwen Gong '16 has directed and produced three short films exploring the theme. The first film, is a meditation on the Kino-eye theory of the Russian Filmmaker, Dziga Vertov. Using historical documentary footage, the film explores in chronological order, the introduction of technologies over time and our interactions with them. The second, is a short abstract video exploring the life of an ordinary person in everyday life. Shot from a first-person perspective, the film explores the way in which our lives today are saturated with technology. The third and final film is a dreamscape exploring a young woman's reservations about her relationship with technology. We then explore the world of live electronic music with the world premiere of Grey Noise LItanies by valley composer Gregory W. Brown. Featuring music for turntable, digitally enhanced solo cello and orchestra, the piece plays with the line of separation between the analog and the digital world of sound. Finally, the music of John Adams's Fearful Symmetries inspires an original video by world-renowned video artist, Elliott Forrest, and a new dance featuring video by Saulius Slezas and choregraphy by Rose Flachs. Forrest has become a regular staple of video presentations by such familiar names as the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the New York Philharmonic. Flachs new work will speak to the developing body of research encompassing the effects of technology as a means of communication and socialization. In a collaborative project including a visual designer, choreographer and seven dancers, Flachs uses projection, sensors, cellphones and stop-motion animation together with dance to explore how our society is caught in a web of technology, examining the question of how a persons addiction to their cell phones affects their ability to meet and mingle with others.

Three Sisters
One of Russia’s premiere theatre companies presents this luminous retelling of Chekhov's masterpiece, which follows three sisters who are forced to leave Moscow for life in a provincial town. The family bravely confronts the tragic rift between personal desires and harsh, everyday realities. In this surprisingly sexy and emotionally raw production, Three Sisters gives us the chance to reflect on issues of economic recession and class disparity through the lens of the personal, cultural and political changes that shook Russia at the end of the 19th century. Directed by renowned director Lev Dodin and performed in Russian with English supertitles, this staging is a testament to the legacy of one of the world’s greatest playwrights.
