Susan Wahlrab: Seasons
City:Stowe
Place:West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park

The North Gallery of West Branch hosts Susan Wahlrab’s new exhibition entitled Seasons and is on view through August 31. Her unique watercolor technique is impressionistic when viewed from a distance alluding to the British Romantic landscapes of J.M.W. Turner and Monet. Their influence is clearly evidenced, yet viewed up close, one is surprised to see tiny pools, miniscule etchings in the wash of color, like watery hieroglyphics. Almost encaustic in their layered density, the paintings look and feel wet from the coating of glossy clear varnish.

Book by Jo Swerling & Abe Burrows Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser Based on the Idyll of Sarah Brown and characters by Damon Runyon The legendary Broadway fable Guys and Dolls is a musical romantic comedy involving the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game manager who is anything but. Set in the Manhattan of Damon Runyon’s short stories, Guys and Dolls takes us from bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana to the sewers of New York City. The musical features some of Frank Loesser’s most memorable tunes, including "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat" and “Luck be a Lady.” 2 hours 40 minutes including intermission.

Zappa Plays Zappa
City:Rutland

Time:8:00 pm
Phone:802-775-0903

Dweezil Zappa is both the modern face of Zappa music and the person who can bring it fully-formed into the future. The ‘Ahead of Its Time’ moniker frequently slapped onto Frank’s music is brought to life for modern audiences, who are still able to full-sensory witness the spectacular specimens of some of American music’s most original, unrepentant and boundlessly experimental canons, thanks to Dweezil and five other telepathic musicians. Through artful reshaping & rekindling of his father’s timeless music, featuring Frank’s trademark incredibly complex compositions and perfect execution, Dweezil applies his talent to exposing, performing and shamelessly proselytizing music that literally is in his blood. This tour also celebrates ten years of Zappa Plays Zappa performing shows worldwide and of Dweezil proving his goal of forming a core band of previously unknown expert musicians capable to respectfully execute his father’s music; ended up winning them two Grammy Awards along the way.

Rock Voices ~ Endless Summer 2015 GENERAL INFO Join the area's only community rock choir for an evening of rock & pop classics like you've never heard them before. This summer the choir pays tribute to the bands of the California coast from the 60’s & 70’s. The Beach Boys, CSN, Steely Dan, Eagles, James Taylor, Janis Joplin, Jackson Browne, Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, Grateful Dead, and more! The choir is backed up by a professional 4-piece band comprised of talented musicians with local roots: Ross Bellenoit (guitar), Joe Whalen (bass), Carrie Ferguson (keyboards), and Dave Tallarida (drums). Add to that the harmonies of Lechner's arrangements sung by a 100+ voice choir and you are in for a real treat. Rock Voices represents everything that is great about the greater Pioneer Valley: a sense of community, a love of music, and a desire to share that joy with others. But be careful; once you experience this choir in person, you might find yourself signing up to sing next time around! www.RockVoices.com __________________________________________________________________ TICKET PRICES Ticket prices are the same for all shows. $15/adults $12/seniors (65+) $ 8/students Children 12 & under are free Note: when ordering tickets through the Academy Box Office or Brown Paper Tickets, there is a service charge added to the ticket price.
