The Last Dance: Life, Love & Loss in Music, Spoken Word & Movement

Guilford, Vt. - Friends of Music at Guilford's (FOMAG) annual Midwinter Musicale begins at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 17, in the sanctuary of Guilford Community Church. A propos for Valentine's week, this program is a multimedia consideration of love, as it is woven inevitably through the weft of life and loss, and it includes elements of music, movement, and the spoken word.

Last summer, Jessica Gelter, a former trustee and occasional soloist for Friends of Music, proposed performing David Lang's "Death Speaks" song cycle. Lang had won a Pulitzer Prize for his 2007 "Little Match Girl Passion," a choral work based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. To create this 2011 companion piece of five love songs in the voice of Death, Lang combined excerpted texts from a study of over 600 lieder by Franz Schubert. Mezzo-soprano Gelter will perform the resulting 25-minute work with baritone Tony Grobe, violinist Michele Liechti, guitarist David William Ross, and pianist Keane Southard.

Vermont Jazz Center Presents: The Marquis Hill Blacktet

Marquis Hill Blacktet to Appear at the VJC on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at 8:00 PM

Trumpeter Marquis Hill will appear at the Vermont Jazz Center on Saturday, February 17th, at 8:00 PM with his group, the Blacktet, which also features Joel Ross on vibraphone, James Francies on piano, Harish Raghavan on acoustic bass and Jonathan Pinson on the drums.

Marquis Hill emerged into the jazz limelight in 2014 after earning the prestigious award of top prize at the International Thelonious Monk Competition.  Leading up to this, his success was gradual and patiently earned - the result of a clear vision and a disciplined approach nurtured by mentors, hard work and natural talent. After receiving a Masters Degree in Jazz Pedagogy, Hill won first place in both the 2012 International Trumpet Guild’s Jazz Improvisation Competition and the 2013 Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition. One of his mentors, the masterful pianist Willie Pickens (R.I.P.) said in an interview that, when Marquis Hill would come over to his house to study, “he was always focused…every moment that we were together he was trying to get something out of me.” Hill’s earnest motivation to learn and grow are reflected in his successes: his prolific yet careful output, the proficiency he demonstrates on his instrument, his brilliant musical arrangements and his abilities as a bandleader to maintain an identifiable, tightly knit sound even when playing in varied styles.

Sex and the Single Show Girl

Lately I’ve been running into lots of examples in movies, stories, and books of sexual harrassment of women in show business.  It’s just rampant.  Of course, my media sources aren’t from the present day — the present day is too depressing. I’ve set the dial back to about the turn of the century through the 1930s.  Now that I think of it, these too were depressing times.  But depressing times call for entertainment—so bring on the show girls!

Antje Duvekot and Beaucoup Blue at Next Stage on Saturday, February 3

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present award-winning contemporary folk singer/songwriter Antje Duvekot and Philadelphia-based, Americana and acoustic blues duo Beaucoup Blue at Next Stage on Saturday, February 3 at 7:30 pm.

Antje Duvekot is a German-born, American-raised singer/songwriter whose songs have been critically praised for their hard-won wisdom, dark-eyed realism and street-smart romanticism. Her bicultural upbringing and relative newness to English have helped shape her unique way with a song, giving her a startlingly original poetic palette. They are the keys to the powerful, even revolutionary, empathy that informs everything she writes. She has won some of the top songwriting awards including the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, the Kerrville Folk Festival Best New Folk Award and the Boston Music Award for Outstanding Folk Act.
