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.”

A Voice For All
"On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused or assaulted by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year this equates to more than 10 million women and men." So the question is: are you or anyone you know a victim domestic violence or rape? If the answer is yes, we're here to help heal. We're here to let you know you are not alone. If your answer is no, we're here to network with people like you too. As the statistics rise people are left feeling alone, afraid and even hopeless.  My name is Shauna Riordan and I represent Newburyport, Ma as a finalist in the Miss USA state pageant. I am teaming up with a very inspirational woman named Carolyn LoVetere (of The Shaky Lady) to support two very deserving non-profits that are well-known for their work with women and children in crisis: The Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center & Boston Rape Crisis Center. As victims ourselves, we decided it was time to speak up and speak out about the ways that women and children can get the support they need, before, during, and after their crisis.

New Orleans native Trombone Shorty began his career as a bandleader at the young age of six, toured internationally at age 12, and spent his teens playing with various brass bands throughout New Orleans and touring worldwide with Lenny Kravitz. He fronts Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, a funk/rock/jazz/hip-hop band. Together they have toured across the U.S., Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan and Brazil. In 2010, Trombone Shorty released his debut album, the Grammy-nominated "Backatown," followed by "For True" in 2011, which topped Billboard magazine's Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks. His newest album, "Say That to This," was released in 2013 and features funk/jazz elements of New Orleans. Trombone Shorty appeared in several episodes of HBO's "Treme," and has recently appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and "Conan." In 2012, he performed at the White House in honor of Black History Month with music royalty such as B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck and Booker T. Jones. At this year's Grammy Awards, he performed alongside Madonna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Mary Lambert.

RenMen Laments
Renaissance Men is Boston's acclaimed male vocal chamber ensemble; delivering impassioned interpretation of men's modal music spanning the centuries. In June of 2014, Renaissance Men, then a sextet, performed our inaugural concerts, which included Thomas Tallis's monumental Lamentations of Jeremiah. Now in its second year as an ensemble ten-strong, we are privileged to revive it for our newly realized ensemble and for our new national audience alike. No stone will we be left unturned as we reconnoitre every facet and fiber of this masterpiece, weaving seamlessly between select quintets in the work's most delicate and vulnerable moments, and joining together en masse for the dramatic musical climaxes. As we have grown as artists and interpreters, it is with great honor we present this work again, and we hope those who heard it the first time will come reimagine this glorious music in our new identity. Our first concert also introduced us to the music of nationally-renowned choral composer -- and now one of our dearest friends -- Daniel E. Gawthrop. In the 2014-15 season, we premiered his men's arrangement of the omnipresent Close Now Thine Eyes, and this season we are so proud to give a world premiere of his brand new work The Promises of Isaiah the Prophet, a musical response to Tallis's Lamentations. Gawthrop's austere harmonic landscapes and transcendent vocal writing will complement, if not augment, his inspiration. A collection of musical psalm settings will help add to the ambience, including Darius Milhaud's Psaume 121, Patricia Van Ness's Psalm 3, and Pablo Casal's O Vos Omnes will set the table for this deeply introspective program.

Interactive Concert and Talk for Submitting Artists for "Pictures at an Exhibition Reframed"
A group of Malden arts and culture enthusiasts, MATV, and representatives of local cultural organizations announce a call to artists to create artworks inspired by "Pictures at an Exhibition," a suite of ten movements for piano composed by Modest Mussorgsky. As part of this call, submitting artists are encouraged to attend this private workshop on June 11, 2016 to hear pianist Yelena Beriyeva discuss and play the ten movements of "Pictures at an Exhibition." Though many recordings of pianists playing "Pictures at an Exhibition" exist on Youtube etc., hearing Beriyeva's interpretation, particularly in person, will offer artists an advantage. The original idea for "Pictures at an Exhibition Reframed," a multi-media event and celebration of the connections between the arts, came from the moving story of composer, Modest Mussorgsky, and his artist friend, Viktor Hartmann. Mussorgsky wrote a work for piano as a tribute to Hartmann after the painter's sudden and untimely death. The composer used the artist's paintings and the idea of an exhibition of his works to give shape to the music that became known as "Pictures at an Exhibition." "Pictures at an Exhibition Reframed" seeks to continue this creative flow by allowing Mussorgsky's piece, as interpreted by pianist Yelena Beriyeva, to inspire visual artists in the Greater Boston Area. The result will be a juried show of two-dimensional art which will be displayed at a public performance of "Pictures" by Beriyeva in Jenkins Auditorium in Malden, Massachusetts on Saturday, November 5, 2016. The event will also include a dramatic presentation inspired by the friendship between the two original artists, a special high school art exhibit, and projections of select submissions during the concert. An additional exhibit of accepted artists work will follow in the gallery at MATV, Malden's Media Center, and will continue until January 12, 2017. For the complete call to artist guidelines and information, visit http://artfulwebs.com/pictures/call-to-artists About Yelena Beriyeva Yelena Beriyeva is a world-class concert pianist who made her debut at age five. Originally from the Republic of Georgia, Beriyeva lives in Malden and continues to perform as featured soloist with various orchestras around the world. She is currently under the management of Price Rubin & Partners, Artist Representation Services www.pricerubin.com.
