July 2 - October 6   GREAT BARRINGTON ARTS MARKET
Downtown Great Barrington Alongside The Great Barrington Farmer's Market
18 Church Street
- Great Barrington, MA (413) 429-6830

A curated outdoor market featuring local and regional handmade gifts and products. Announcing the opening of the 6th annual Great Barrington Arts Market (GBAM) alongside the Great Barrington Farmer’s Market and their new expanded season that runs from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day weekend. Every Saturday from 9 -1, GBAM offers visitors the opportunity to buy unique art and craft made by local artisans in a variety of media and price ranges. Great Barrington Arts Market is on 18 Church Street, just outside the Great Barrington Farmer’s Market. The Farmers Market is celebrating 28 years, with 36 local vendors from across Berkshire County, live music, ready to eat food and community events.
GBAM seeks to bring local artists directly to market with potential customers and adds another exciting destination to Great Barrington’s already vibrant Saturday mornings. Our new location makes it even easier and more convenient to enjoy shopping for local gifts.
Market founders Kathyn Burkle and Molly de St André are both artists (of KathrynBee Designs and Moho Designs/Petit Pilou) who loved the idea of helping connect other local craftspeople with a viable market opportunity and wanted to see Great Barrington’s outdoor Saturday market expand. They believe that the Farmer’s Market shopper recognizes how important it is to support the local economy and that a venue for artists to sell their work directly to the community is an obvious sister market for the Farmer’s Market. In a community where so many residents believe in the importance of keeping dollars local, GBAM and GBFM offer locals and tourists another fun and interesting weekend activity and is quickly becoming a summer Saturday tradition.
The Market will be held every Saturday, May 26 through October 6, and will feature 10 local artists each week including Petit Pilou, JK Custom Furniture and Design, Berkshire Four Poster, Ben Evans, The Peach Tree Jewelry, Aubry Woodworks, KathrynBee Designs and many others in media including ceramics, jewelry, textile/clothing design, woodworking, painting, printmaking and fiber arts.

July 8 - August 19   SEVENARS MUSIC FESTIVAL
The Academy
15 Ireland Street (Off Rte 112)
- South Worthington, MA (413) 238-5854

Sunday, July 8, at 4 PM: Sevenars 50th Anniversary Opening Concert
Join members of the Schrade and James family of musicians, along with Emmy-winning TV journalist/flutist Magee Hickey in celebrating the opening of Sevenars 50th Anniversary season! Sevenars also will honor the memory of three extraordinary musicians and people, Robert and Rolande Schrade, and Robelyn Schrade James, without whom these fifty years of concerts would not have been born. Members of the Schrade and James families have attracted a loyal following of audiences and press, whether at Lincoln Center, Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, throughout the US, Canada, New Zealand, France, the UK, Italy, or Fiji, in chamber, solo, and orchestral appearances, and on radio, television, and numerous highly praised recordings. As individuals they have garnered dozens of awards and accolades and as a family were the first listed on Steinway's global artists roster (as well as individual listings).

As a special treat, Magee Hickey of WPIX (formerly WABC, WNBC, WCBS) will play the flute. Unbeknownst to many (despite performing in major New York venues), she is also an inspired flutist who studied at the Fontainebleau School of Music (sitting in on the classes of the legendary Nadia Boulanger) and has played duets with James Galway (taking pointers on how to get that clear, brilliant Galway sound)! The program will include piano, cello, flute, solo, and duo repertoire by Bach, Chopin, Ravel, and others.

July 12 - 28   BANG ON A CAN SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL
MASS MoCA
104 MASS MoCA Way
- North Adams, MA

Brilliant musicians and composers inhabit the MASS MoCA campus from July 12 – July 28 for three rollicking weeks of innovative, unexpected, and ear-expanding music.
Three decades ago, composers Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe noticed something missing in the universe of music: a zone between rock, jazz, classical, and folk where new forms of musical expression could find new audiences and new players. A composer combining electric guitar, exuberant percussion, and classical instrumentation needed a place to collaborate with a musician experimenting with minimal beats and Appalachian fiddling. So they invented a new world of music, and called it Bang on a Can.

Recitals in the galleries take place at 1:30 and 4:30 PM everyday (except Sundays). For earlier shows expect fresh music; experimental, raw, often only days (or minutes) old. For 4:30 shows, performances are often drawn from more established works, well-known composers, and pieces written by Bang founders and faculty.

Bang on a Can All-Stars is on Saturday, July 21st at 8 PM, followed by the Bang On A Can Marathon with Steve Reich on July 28th from 4-10PM. More than 60 performers in more than 20 performances make up 6 hours of magical music and mayhem. Come early and stay long — the Hunter will be flowing with familiar and just-composed music, while the courtyard is full of friends and food. One of our favorite and most lively days of the year, this year features works by another favorite, guest composer Steve Reich.
POP UP PERFORMANCES @ 1:30PM & 4:30 DAILY

July 20 - 22   TAICHI ALCHEMY: YANG CHENG FU'S 13 ORIGINAL POSTURES w/RICK BARRETT
Eastover Estate & Retreat Center
430 East Street
- Lenox, MA (866) 264-5139

Traditionally, taijiquan is taught from the “outside in” - that is, one learns the movements and over years of practice gradually becomes aware of the internal power that makes it so effective. This workshop reverses this by showing how to access “jin” (power) from the start, and how to inculcate it into each movement of a taijiquan form. Practices included in this VERY ambitious program: The Three Pillars - How to access a rooted, coherent, whole-body energetic connection - even under duress and how to access Super Conscious awareness. It is a short, powerful large-frame form that can be learned in a weekend.

Rick Barrett has been teaching Chinese internal martial arts and practicing energy healing in New York City for over a quarter century, and has been studying for almost forty years. His two primary teachers are Masters William C. C. Chen and Yang Fukui.

July 21   TRANQUILITY OPENING RECEPTION
Scott Barrow Photography Gallery
17 Housatonic Street
- Lenox, MA 
(413) 637-2299
Lenox, MA – Scott Barrow’s summer fine art photography show, Tranquility opens on Saturday, July 21. There is a tranquility that comes from experiencing the pre-dawn light. The Earth is quieter and seems to have the right number of people. Photographing sunrise allows Scott to regroup. It’s a wonderful reminder that this planet is a beautiful place and that each day brings new beginnings.

The opening reception for Tranquility is on July 21, 2018 from 5pm – 7pm at the Scott Barrow Photography Gallery. The gallery is located at 17 Housatonic Street in Lenox, MA. Refreshments will be served. The exhibition runs through August.

About Scott Barrow: Scott took his first photographs when he was ten having been introduced to the magic of photography in his father’s amber lit darkroom. He never stopped shooting. During his career, hundreds of assignments for advertising, travel, editorial and corporate clients have allowed him to explore the world. As an intuitive location photographer, his “studio” is wherever he happens to be at the moment. In recent years digital imaging has replaced the darkroom, but the adventure is still there and most importantly, the magic.

July 21  FOOD FOR THOUGHT: DINNER w/CHRIS JENNINGS
Hancock Shaker Village
1843 West Housatonic Street
- Pittsfield, MA

When a really smart historian is funny, lively, and a natural storyteller, magic can happen, especially when he talks about a generation of 19th century dreamers who took it upon themselves to confront the messiness and injustice of a rapidly changing world with a utopian response. In Paradise Now, Chris Jennings offers a spellbinding account of American utopianism and the bold, eccentric visions for the future put forward by five of history’s most influential utopian movements, including the Shakers. Praised by The New York Times as “uncommonly smart and beautifully written,” “absorbing” (Kirkus) and “engaging and witty” (San Francisco Chronicle), Paradise Now offers an infectious yet clear-eyed account of those who “lived on the cusp of an incandescent future,” perhaps gently nudging us to ask what sort of future we want to build for ourselves.
TICKETS $100/$90 members, includes seasonal dinner by farm-to-table chef Brian Alberg, wine, and book.

July 21  SHAKER BARN MUSIC: DOUBLE HITTER
Hancock Shaker Village
1843 West Housatonic Street
- Pittsfield, MA

Doors open 7pm/Show 8pm
Wilco talents John Stirratt and Pat Sansone have been playing together in their spare time as the indie rock band The Autumn Defense ever since the idea struck them 18 years ago at the end of Wilco’s Mermaid Avenue sessions with Billy Bragg. Stirratt (formerly Uncle Tupelo) and Sansone combine classic pop and rock sounds from ‘60s and ‘70s with silk-soft country-folk. “In short: warming, gorgeous, delightful,” wrote Rolling Stone.
Fans love Maloney’s eclectic, rapturous indie-rock sound and a voice that’s “utterly gorgeous and visceral,” says The New York Times. She uses it to tell down-to-earth tales with lyrics that “cut to the chase” (Huffington Post) and hypnotic vocals that have been compared to Joni Mitchel and Aimee Mann. Maloney’s sound will “knock-you-to-your-knees,” according to Glide Magazine – come see how.

Eastover Estate & Retreat Center
430 East Street
- Lenox, MA (866) 264-5139

Tao Tan Pai 31 Postures/Meditations is the basic health and self-healing Qigong training of the Tao Tan Pai Kung Fu system - an authentic Taoist monastic system originated during China’s Tang Dynasty and attributed to Lu Deng Bin, the leader of the Eight Taoist Immortals (saints) preserved for 23 generations, mostly at the Ancient Temple of the Yellow Dragon near Mt. Luohu. Tan Pai Qigong traditionally has been the secret engine that develops the natural body mechanics and tangible superabundance of energy that empowers the Tao Tan Pai Kung Fu.

July 26   SINGER AND HISTORIAN HARVEY GRANAT TO PERFORM A FOUR-PERT SERIES
Berkshire South Regional Community Center
15 Crissey Road
- Great Barrington, MA (413) 528-2810

Harvey Granat, singer and a historian of The American Songbook, will perform a four-part series at Berkshire South Regional Community Center, 15 Crissey Road, Great Barrington, MA beginning on Thursday July 19 at 7PM.

Billed as an homage to the Golden Age of Broadway, the four performances will pay tribute to a specific composer or lyricist who contributed to Broadway’s most fertile period. The initial performance will focus on Rodgers and Hammerstein, who gave us the musicals Oklahoma, Carousel, The King and I, The Sound of Music and more.

Each program will feature live performance of their great songs along with Granat’s stories about the songs, the shows and films from which they came.

"I revere the great composers and lyricists who created The Great American Songbook.” says Granat. “I consider many of the lyrics of this time to be part of America's great poetry and I try to perform those lyrics as the writers intended them to be performed. Each song tells a story and it is a performer's responsibility to deliver that story in a meaningful way. Many of the stories I tell in my programs come from actual correspondence of these writers that I have collected over the years."

The cost per performance is $16 for members and $20 for guests. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit the Center’s Front Desk or call 413.528.2810, ext. 10.

Teacher
Master Ling Ning is the 7th generation successor of Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan, Champion of Tai Chi Sword of the 11th International Tai Chi Chuan Competition, Head Coach of Shandong Yongnian Yang Style Tai Chi Culture Development Center (SDYNC).
After watching Master Ning’s performance of Tai Chi Quan in Boston early 2017, a Tai Chi practitioner wrote: “What grace, flow, balance and power! It was inspirational”. A Tai Chi teacher wrote: “I am humbled to have had the privilege to watch such a master perform. I have seen other Masters perform but Master Ning has a style and grace that was, to me, far more eloquent. She captivated you with her beauty and professionalism.”
