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.

August 2   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.

The band's major hits — Call Me, One Way or Another, Heart of Glass, and Rapture — remain timeless. Debbie Harry endures as a force to be reckoned with — prowling the stage and belting out fan favorites with the same ferocious energy that made Blondie’s CBGB shows a thing of legend. Northampton's And The Kids open the evening. Join us mid-field, mid-summer on Friday, August 3, 7pm.

August 4 - 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.

The benefits of mantra chanting are countless - it increases intuition, self-esteem, enhances wellbeing, relieves depression, anxiety, tension and stress stored in our bodies. We lose our obsession with material and bodily issues, our fear beliefs dissipate, aging is seen as a graceful process, as is our passing from this life. The timelessness of our spirits is embraced as unhealthy habits and their relevance lessen and even disappear. Join in elevation with hundreds more, for Sat Nam Fest Berkshires.

August 9   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.

Hancock Shaker Village
1843 West Housatonic Street
- Pittsfield, MA

Amy Dickinson told NPR that her hometown of Freeville, NY, is mostly a town of leavers and stayers - and that she managed to do both. Dickinson is the nationally-syndicated Ask Amy advice columnist and New York Times bestselling author whose memoir - Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Coming Home - chronicles romance, death, parenting, divorce, aging, spiritual awakening, and other pressure points familiar to those who have surfed in the wake of life's twists and turns. A panelist on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, with appearances on Good Morning America and the Today Show, Dickinson is a wry straight shooter whose sage advice has made her one of America’s most beloved advice columnists (stepping onto the national stage to replace Ann Landers' cannot have been easy). Come meet the woman who grew up on a dairy farm, comes from a family of nerds (they would diagram sentences for fun), and has written a courageously honest memoir that empowers, heals, and entertains.
TICKETS $100/$90 members, includes seasonal dinner by farm-to-table chef Brian Alberg, wine, and book.

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

Magnetic-Harmonic Vibrational Therapist, Jay Emmanuel, A.K., N.S.,V.M. shares powerful energy techniques that use the forces of sounds produced by the human voice in combination with Himalayan and Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls to activate the body’s natural self-healing response.

Jay Emmanuel calls his technique “Magnetic Harmonic Vibrational Therapy”; in this practice, he utilizes specific sounds and frequencies of vibrations together with “Parthonic Energy” and “Mind Energy in Action”. With this combination, he helps re-establish the proper harmonic tones and frequencies within the subtle energy fields of the body - including the Chakras, Etheric body, Auric energy field, and the physical body.

Jay believes every person possesses an infinite force that can activate his/her own “Inner Natural Pharmacy”. This inner macrocosmic force, encoded in our DNA archives, can bring upon regeneration and the natural healing process of the entire biophysical, mental, energetic or etheric body.

Imagine a day of music, ballads, storytelling, harmony workshops, and dance. A place where musicians blend with the audience. Where there’s no backstage. Where the green room is a vast field for picnicking. Anna and Elizabeth are Appalachian singer/songwriters who nestle in the space between ancient ballads and new sounds, and “are not only extraordinary musicians; they are also visual artists, historians, and storytellers” (No Depression) who have created a day of music with friends, including composer/cellist Paul Wiancko, experimental pedal steel luminary Susan Acorn, and dancer Sandy Silva, whose body percussion techniques and contemporary movement stands out at the vanguard of contemporary artistry in traditional music and dance. Come for a heritage-inspired festival and stay for the close harmonies.

From food to free tours of ancient medicinal herb gardens, this festival offers numerous experiences to enjoy with the music. Afternoon harmony & dance workshops. An evening performance in the barn that combines traditional song and dance with new compositions, movement, and projections inspired by the Shakers who built the barn. Followed by a rollicking barn dance.
