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.”

Grand Harmonie presents: 'Through the Looking Glass'
Grand Harmonie, Boston's groundbreaking period-instrument ensemble, presents a program of German Romantic music in unusual chamber settings. Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and Brahms's Serenade no. 1 are staples of the orchestral repertoire, but both began life as chamber works: the Idyll as a surprise birthday present to Wagner's second wife Cosima, and the Brahms Serenade as a nonet for winds and strings. Rarely heard on historical instruments, these works highlight the masterful tone colors wielded by the two titans of opposing schools of Romanticism. This performance will premiere a new reconstruction of the Brahms Serenade no. 1 by Grand Harmonie members Yoni Kahn and Thomas Carroll. A set of French dances for winds by German composer Heinrich Scherrer and a period arrangement for string quintet of Brahms's Liebeslieder waltzes round out the program. Program: Wagner: Siegfried-Idyll Heinrich Scherrer: Altfranzösische Tänze (Old French Dances) Brahms arr. Hermann: Liebeslieder-Waltzer Brahms reconst. Kahn/Carroll: Serenade no. 1 op. 11 General admission tickets are free and open to the public, and will be distributed on a first come first served basis.

Tchaikovsky, Elgar and Schubert featuring Pinchas Zukerman as conductor and violin


Violinist/conductor Pinchas Zukerman returns to the BSO podium in both roles in two short, beautiful Tchaikovsky works for violin and orchestra, and to lead the composer's famous Serenade for Strings. Edward Elgar's warmhearted Chanson de nuit is one of two brief pieces originally for solo violin and piano (the other being Chanson de matin), later rescored for orchestra. Franz Schubert wrote his charming, four-movement Symphony No. 5 when he was just nineteen. Its balance of materials and control of the orchestra show the influence of Mozart and Beethoven. View biography in full page >



Pinchas Zukerman has remained a phenomenon in the world of music for four decades. His musical genius, prodigious technique and unwavering artistic standards are a marvel to audiences and critics. Devoted to the next generation of musicians, he has inspired younger artists with his magnetism and passion. His devotion to teaching has resulted in innovative programs in London, New York, China, Israel and Ottawa. The name Pinchas Zukerman is equally respected as violinist, violist, conductor, pedagogue and chamber musician.

Pinchas Zukerman's 2011-2012 season includes over 100 worldwide performances, bringing him to multiple destinations in North America, Europe and Asia. In his third season as Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London, he leads the ensemble in concerts throughout Spain, Italy, and the United Kingdom, as well as on an east coast tour of the United States and Canada. Additional orchestral engagements include the New York and Israel Philharmonic Orchestras and Chicago, San Francisco, Oregon and San Diego Symphonies. Guest appearances with international orchestras include the Bayerische Staatsoper Munich, Budapest Festival Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, OSESP Brazil, Miyazaki Festival Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Symphony and Orchestra Giovani Luigi Cherubino. His chamber ensemble, the Zukerman ChamberPlayers, appears at the Ravinia, Schleswig-Holstein and Tuscan Sun Music Festivals and tours to Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Croatia, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, United States and Canada.

Over the last decade, Pinchas Zukerman has become as equally regarded a conductor as he is an instrumentalist, leading many of the world's top ensembles in a wide variety of the orchestral repertoire's most demanding works. Currently in his 13th season as Music Director of the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, Mr. Zukerman is recognized for heightening the ensemble's caliber and reputation, inaugurating the prestigious National Arts Centre Summer Music Institute, and expanding the ensemble's repertoire to include large-scale works. Performances under Maestro Zukerman have included the Brahms, Mozart, Verdi and Fauré Requiems, Opera Lyra's production of Mozart's The Magic Flute and major works by Beethoven, Berlioz, Bruckner, Dvorák, Elgar, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Schubert and Schumann.

Mr. Zukerman is deeply committed to enriching the National Arts Centre Orchestra's cultural involvement within the region, and since his appointment has taken an interest in virtually every aspect of Ottawa's artistic community. He has made five recordings with the Orchestra, introduced a new Acoustic Control System to the NAC's Southam Hall and been involved in a number of national radio and television broadcasts. Several educational initiatives have been established under his leadership, including the NAC Institute for Orchestral Studies and the Summer Music Institute which brings students from around the globe to Ottawa to participate in the Young Artists, Conductors and Composers Programmes. The Zukerman Musical Instrument Fund works to acquire donated and new instruments for orchestral musicians. He has also championed contemporary Canadian composers, conducting works by Linda Bouchard, Jacques Hétu, Alain Perron, Peter Paul Koprowski, Gary Kulesha, Denis Bouliane, Alexina Louie, Denis Gougeon and Malcolm Forsyth. Since Zukerman's arrival in 1998, the National Arts Centre Orchestra has renewed its commitment to regular touring both nationally and internationally. He led enormously successful Canadian tours in 1999, 2002, 2004 and 2005, as well as critically acclaimed tours to the Middle East and Europe in 2000 and the United States and Mexico in 2003, all highlighted by hundreds of unprecedented outreach activities with an innovative internet component.

In January 2008, Maestro Zukerman led the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on a North American tour consisting of 22 concerts in 11 states, after which the RPO musicians unanimously voted to appoint him Principal Guest Conductor beginning in the 2009-2010 season. In this capacity, Zukerman works extensively with the RPO throughout the UK and on several international touring projects each season. In addition to this season's tours of China, Italy, England, Israel and Switzerland, he has also led the RPO in concerts in Russia, Italy, Switzerland, Spain and the UK. He will also employ his expertise and passion for outreach and play an active role in developing the RPO's education department and community activities.

In addition to the National Arts Centre and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras, Maestro Zukerman maintains long-term conducting relationships with such esteemed ensembles as the Chicago Symphony, Israel Philharmonic and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestras. In North America he has led the New York and Rochester Philharmonics, the National Symphony, The Florida Orchestra, and the symphonies of Atlanta, Dallas, Toronto, Milwaukee, Saint Louis, Madison, Oregon, Utah and Colorado, among others. Internationally he has conducted the Staatskapelle Berlin, the Radio France and Nagoya Philharmonics, and the Barcelona, São Paulo and Singapore Symphony Orchestras.

A devoted and innovative pedagogue, Mr. Zukerman chairs the Pinchas Zukerman Performance Program at the Manhattan School of Music. To maintain close relationships with his students while fulfilling the travel demands of his concert engagements, Mr. Zukerman has pioneered the use of distance-learning technology in the arts. Through the use of the school's videoconferencing system, his students are able to receive regular string instruction.

A frequent chamber music performer, Pinchas Zukerman has appeared regularly with such friends and colleagues as Daniel Barenboim, Vladmir Ashkenazy, Itzhak Perlman, the Orion and Tokyo String Quartets, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, Ralph Kirshbaum, Yefim Bronfman, Lynn Harrell, Marc Neikrug and the late Jacqueline du Pré. In 2003 he formed the Zukerman ChamberPlayers, an ensemble which has performed for the past eight seasons at such prestigious overseas venues as the BBC Proms, Concertgebouw, Tivoli, Schleswig-Holstein, Verbier, Harrogate and Tuscan Sun Music Festivals. In North America, the group has garnered critical acclaim for concerts at the Ravinia, Tanglewood and Aspen Music Festivals and at New York City's 92nd Street Y, the Kennedy Center, Toronto's Royal Conservatory of Music, Parry Sound and Domaine Forget in Canada. The Zukerman ChamberPlayers has toured throughout Europe, Asia, South America and New Zealand. The group has recorded Schubert's Trout Quintet and Mozart's Piano Quartet in E-flat with pianist Yefim Bronfman on Sony/BMG and the quintets of Mozart, Brahms and Dvorak for Altara. The Zukerman ChamberPlayers' debut recording for CBC Records, Mozart-Zukerman, was nominated for a 2004 Juno Award in the "Classical Album of the Year: Solo or Chamber Ensemble" category.

Pinchas Zukerman's extensive discography contains over 100 titles, and has earned him 21 Grammynominations and two awards: "Best Chamber Music Performance" in 1980 and "Best Classical Performance, Instrumental Soloist with Orchestra" in 1981. Mr. Zukerman's first recording as Music Director of the National Arts Centre Orchestra was a 1999 CBC Records release of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons in which he was featured as conductor and violinist. An earlier recording of three Haydn works on BMG Classics, which he made as guest conductor of the Orchestra in 1993, was re-released in 1998 in honor of his appointment. In 2000, CBC Records released Mr. Zukerman's first-ever recording of Beethoven Symphonies - Nos. 1 and 2 - along with the Romance No. 2 in F Major, followed by discs of Schubert works in 2002 and Mozart in 2003. Prior releases on BMG Classics/RCA Victor Red Seal include the complete violin/piano and viola/piano repertoire of Brahms, Beethoven, Mozart and Schumann with pianist Marc Neikrug. Earlier recordings are also available on the Angel, CBS, Decca, Deutsche Grammophon, London and Philips labels.

Pinchas Zukerman has been featured in numerous television specials and national talk shows. He has been a performer and presenter at both the Kennedy Center Honors and the Grammy Awards ceremony and appeared with the Chicago Symphony on the PBS special Mozart by the Masters. In 2004, the CBC recorded a ten-segment series entitled "The Concerto According to Pinchas" which continues to be broadcast and re-broadcast around the world. A frequent performer on Live from Lincoln Center, Mr. Zukerman has collaborated with the English filmmaker Christopher Nupen on several projects including the Here to Make Music series, a Brahms series, a Schubert series and a documentary on Nathan Milstein. He appeared on PBS's Charlie Rose Show and on CBC Television's nationwide broadcast celebrating the opening concerts of the National Arts Centre's 30th-anniversary season. Crossing Bridges, a documentary by Niv Fichman, followed his tour to the Middle East with the Orchestra, and was awarded the prestigious Gold World Medal at the 2001 New York Festival. Mr. Zukerman's violin playing can be heard on the film soundtracks for Prince of Tides and Critical Care.

Born in Tel Aviv in 1948, Pinchas Zukerman studied music with his father, first on the recorder and clarinet, and later on the violin. He soon began lessons with Ilona Feher and came to America in 1962 with the support of Isaac Stern, Pablo Casals and the America-Israel and Helena Rubinstein Foundations. He began his studies at The Juilliard School with Ivan Galamian and, in 1967, was named first-prize winner of the 25th Leventritt Competition. He holds an honorary doctorate from Brown University and an Achievement Award from the International Center in New York. He was presented with the King Solomon Award by the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and, in 1983, President Reagan awarded him the Medal of Arts for his leadership in the musical world. In 2002 he became the first recipient of the Isaac Stern Award for Artistic Excellence at the National Arts Awards Gala in New York City, and in May 2006 was appointed as the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative's first instrumentalist mentor in the music discipline. Pinchas Zukerman is married to cellist Amanda Forsyth and is father to two daughters, Arianna and Natalia.

He appeared on PBS's Charlie Rose Show and on CBC Television's nationwide broadcast celebrating the opening concerts of the National Arts Centre's 30th-anniversary season. Crossing Bridges, a documentary by Niv Fichman, followed his tour to the Middle East with the Orchestra, and was awarded the prestigious Gold World Medal at the 2001 New York Festival. Mr. Zukerman's violin playing can be heard on the film soundtracks for Prince of Tides and Critical Care.

Born in Tel Aviv in 1948, Pinchas Zukerman studied music with his father, first on the recorder and clarinet, and later on the violin. He soon began lessons with Ilona Feher and came to America in 1962 with the support of Isaac Stern, Pablo Casals and the America-Israel and Helena Rubinstein Foundations. He began his studies at The Juilliard School with Ivan Galamian and, in 1967, was named first-prize winner of the 25th Leventritt Competition. He holds an honorary doctorate from Brown University and an Achievement Award from the International Center in New York. He was presented with the King Solomon Award by the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and, in 1983, President Reagan awarded him the Medal of Arts for his leadership in the musical world. In 2002 he became the first recipient of the Isaac Stern Award for Artistic Excellence at the National Arts Awards Gala in New York City, and in May 2006 was appointed as the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative's first instrumentalist mentor in the music discipline. Pinchas Zukerman is married to cellist Amanda Forsyth and is father to two daughters, Arianna and Natalia.

Andris Nelsons conducts Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff featuring mezzo-soprano Nadezhda Serdyuk
Andris Nelsons leads two very different Russian works written within a year of one another. He and the BSO are joined by Moscow-born mezzo-soprano Nadezhda Serdyuk for Sergei Prokofiev's cantata Alexander Nevsky. The dramatic cantata evokes the life of a great 13th-century Russian hero. Completed the following year in the United States, Sergei Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances is a symphony-like three-movement work, featuring brilliantly imaginative instrumentation. View biography in full page >



In the 2014-15 season, Andris Nelsons' first as the BSO's Ray and Maria Stata Music Director, he leads the orchestra in ten programs at Symphony Hall, repeating three of them at New York's Carnegie Hall in April. The fifteenth music director in the BSO's history, he made his Boston Symphony debut in March 2011, with Mahler's Symphony No. 9 at Carnegie Hall. He made his Tanglewood debut in July 2012, leading both the BSO and the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra as part of Tanglewood's 75th Anniversary Gala (a concert subsequently issued on DVD and Blu-ray, and telecast nationwide on PBS). His Symphony Hall and BSO subscription series debut followed in January 2013, and at Tanglewood last summer he led three concerts with the BSO, as well as a special Tanglewood Gala featuring both the BSO and the TMC Orchestra. His appointment as the BSO's music director has confirmed his reputation as one of the most renowned conductors on the international scene today, a distinguished name on both the opera and concert podiums. He made his first appearances as the BSO's music director designate in October 2013 with a subscription program of Wagner, Mozart, and Brahms, and returned to Symphony Hall in March 2014 for a concert performance of Strauss's Salome. His first compact disc with the BSO (also available as a download)-live recordings of Wagner's Tannhäuser Overture and Sibelius's Symphony No. 2, from concert performances given last fall-was released earlier this season on BSO Classics.

Maestro Nelsons has been critically acclaimed as music director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra since assuming that post in 2008; he remains at the helm of that orchestra until summer 2015. With the CBSO he undertakes major tours worldwide, including regular appearances at such summer festivals as the Lucerne Festival, BBC Proms, and Berlin Festival. Together they have toured the major European concert halls, including Vienna's Musikverein, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, the Gasteig in Munich, and Madrid's Auditorio Nacional de Música. Mr. Nelsons made his debut in Japan on tour with the Vienna Philharmonic and returned to tour Japan and the Far East with the CBSO in November 2013. Over the next few seasons he will continue collaborations with the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Philharmonia Orchestra. He is a regular guest at the Royal Opera House-Covent Garden, the Vienna State Opera, and New York's Metropolitan Opera. In summer 2014 he returned to the Bayreuth Festival to conduct Lohengrin, in a production directed by Hans Neuenfels, which Mr. Nelsons premiered at Bayreuth in 2010.

Andris Nelsons and the CBSO continue their recording collaboration with Orfeo International as they work toward releasing all of Tchaikovsky's orchestral works and a majority of works by Richard Strauss, including a particularly acclaimed account of Strauss's Ein Heldenleben. Most of Mr. Nelsons' recordings have been recognized with the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. In October 2011 he received the prestigious ECHO Klassik of the German Phono Academy in the category "Conductor of the Year" for his CBSO recording of Stravinsky's Firebird and Symphony of Psalms. For audiovisual recordings, he has an exclusive agreement with Unitel GmbH, the most recent release being a Dvorák disc entitled "From the New World" with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, released on DVD and Blu-ray in June 2013. He is also the subject of a recent DVD from Orfeo, a documentary film entitled "Andris Nelsons: Genius on Fire."

Born in Riga in 1978 into a family of musicians, Andris Nelsons began his career as a trumpeter in the Latvian National Opera Orchestra before studying conducting. He was principal conductor of Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie in Herford, Germany, from 2006 to 2009 and music director of Latvian National Opera from 2003 to 2007. View biography in full page >

Founded in January 1970 when conductor John Oliver was named Director of Choral and Vocal Activities at the Tanglewood Music Center, the Tanglewood Festival Chorus made its debut on April 11 that year, in a performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with Leonard Bernstein conducting the BSO. Made up of members who donate their time and talent, and formed originally under the joint sponsorship of Boston University and the Boston Symphony Orchestra for performances during the Tanglewood season, the chorus originally numbered 60 well-trained Boston-area singers, soon expanded to a complement of 120 singers, and also began playing a major role in the BSO's subscription season, as well as in BSO performances at New York's Carnegie Hall. Now numbering some 300 members, the Tanglewood Festival Chorus performs year-round with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops. The chorus gave its first overseas performances in December 1994, touring with Seiji Ozawa and the BSO to Hong Kong and Japan. It performed with the BSO in Europe under James Levine in 2007 and Bernard Haitink in 2001, also giving a cappella concerts of its own on both occasions. In August 2011, with John Oliver conducting and soloist Stephanie Blythe, the Tanglewood Festival Chorus gave the world premiere of Alan Smith's An Unknown Spherefor mezzo-soprano and chorus, commissioned by the BSO to mark the TFC's fortieth anniversary.

The chorus's first recording with the BSO, Berlioz's La Damnation de Faust with Seiji Ozawa, received a Grammy nomination for Best Choral Performance of 1975. In 1979 the ensemble received a Grammy nomination for its album of a cappella 20th-century American choral music recorded at the express invitation of Deutsche Grammophon, and its recording of Schoenberg's Gurrelieder with Ozawa and the BSO was named Best Choral Recording by Gramophone magazine. The Tanglewood Festival Chorus has since made dozens of recordings with the BSO and Boston Pops, on Deutsche Grammophon, New World, Philips, Nonesuch, Telarc, Sony Classical, CBS Masterworks, RCA Victor Red Seal, and BSO Classics, with James Levine, Seiji Ozawa, Bernard Haitink, Sir Colin Davis, Leonard Bernstein, Keith Lockhart, and John Williams. Its most recent recordings on BSO Classics, all drawn from live performances, include a disc of a cappella music released to mark the ensemble's 40th anniversary in 2010, and, with James Levine and the BSO, Ravel's complete Daphnis and Chloé (a Grammy-winner for Best Orchestral Performance of 2009), Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem, and William Bolcom's Eighth Symphony for chorus and orchestra, a BSO 125th Anniversary Commission composed specifically for the BSO and Tanglewood Festival Chorus.

Besides their work with the Boston Symphony, members of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus have performed Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic at Tanglewood and at the Mann Music Center in Philadelphia; participated in a Saito Kinen Festival production of Britten'sPeter Grimes under Seiji Ozawa in Japan, and sang Verdi's Requiem with Charles Dutoit to help close a month-long International Choral Festival given in and around Toronto. In February 1998, singing from the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations, the chorus represented the United States in the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics when Seiji Ozawa led six choruses on five continents, all linked by satellite, in Beethoven's Ode to Joy. The chorus performed its Jordan Hall debut program at the New England Conservatory of Music in May 2004; had the honor of singing at Sen. Edward Kennedy's funeral; has performed with the Boston Pops for the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics, and can also be heard on the soundtracks to Clint Eastwood's Mystic River, John Sayles's Silver City, and Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan.

TFC members regularly commute from the greater Boston area, western Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, and TFC alumni frequently return each summer from as far away as Florida and California to sing with the chorus at Tanglewood. Throughout its history, the Tanglewood Festival Chorus has established itself as a favorite of conductors, soloists, critics, and audiences alike.

Boston might be known around the country as the home of baseball and some die-hard Red Sox fans. But if it's one thing that Boston loves, it's definitely pub crawls! This year's annual Halloween pub crawl will be something for the record books. Not only is Halloween one of the craziest holidays, this year, it falls on a Saturday night! Boston's best bars have all signed up to the official Beantown Halloween pub crawl in order to give every crawler in Boston an epic Halloween experience they'll cherish for a long time to come. While it's tough to organize a pub crawl amongst your friends, we've done all of the work for you. All you need to worry about is your costume, and your stamina, because you'll probably be drinking for hours on end. Rather than opting for the stereotypical Halloween experience in Boston, we're giving you the option to shake things up and enjoy a little variety. With all the bars and pubs participating this Halloween, there are plenty of choices for you. We've enlisted over 10 bars to visit during this magnificent party fest. With bars such as The Times Irish, The Vault, Hard Rock Café, Mija Cantina, and Wild Rover, the Halloween weekend bar crawl is the best option this year. Now's your chance to get tickets to the annual Faneuil Hall Halloween crawl and enjoy the most festive holiday of the year in style!
