The Rye Arts Center will host its annual gala “A Vision In Rye” on Friday, May 12 at Doral Arrowwood in Rye Brook. The event will honor Bob Clyatt, a sculptor who has been instrumental in The Rye Arts Center’s Public Art Initiative, and Brigitte Loritz, a watercolorist who has taught at The Rye Arts Center for more than thirty years.

The gala is our primary fundraiser to support our extensive network of outreach programs. A selection of these activities include in-school programs that bring arts education into hundreds of classrooms; partnerships with Head Start, the Don Bosco Community Center, the Community Resource Center, and the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich to provide arts education to at-risk youth; free specialized dance classes for seniors who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease; and $25,000 in scholarships for The Rye Arts Center arts classes and lessons.

Organized by committee members and staff, the gala is led by co-chairs: Fiona & Ozgen Dogan, Lisa & Robert Miller, Judith & Bill Passannante, and Nicole & Rob Weber.

In addition to cocktails and dinner, the event will include live music, live and silent auctions. The auction items which include week-long getaways, event tickets, and everything in between will be available for advance online bidding.

There will be a mini-art sale of works by both honorees Bob Clyatt and Brigitte Loritz, and arts activities including mini-sculptures with Terry Taylor and a community painting with Nestor Madalengoitia. Comedian, Kim Berns will conduct “red carpet” interviews for a new show on RyeTV, Rye Witness News with Kim Berns.

Fredonia: Faculty Recital: Don Quixote by Kurt Rohde (world premiere)

April 28, 2017 at Rosch Recital Hall in Fredonia.

tracking.php?code=0zSVUh4dfSUVIavRKjzWZn

With support from the Carnahan Jackson Humanities Fund, composer Kurt Rohde has created “a never was a knight,” a musical reimagining of Miquel de Cervantes’ El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha. The libretto comes from come’s Edith Grossman magnificent 2003 translation of the novel. New York City based video artist Jennifer Coates and composer Kurt Rohde, from San Francisco, will join the ensemble in Fredonia for the week of the premier.

Cervantes’ novel has inspired numerous artists and musicians since its publication just over 400 years ago. Mr. Rohde’s music is sophisticated and complex, exploring color and texture, with tremendous imagination. His writing is characterized by non-traditional harmonic language, at once modern, witty and insightful. A virtuosic violist himself, his writing requires, even celebrates, masterful playing, expanding musicians’ boundaries and ideas.

In the composer’s words: “never was a knight” isn’t opera. It isn’t quite a song cycle either; it’s not a musical or an improvisation. The closest thing that this work resembles is the singspiel (sung-spoken) works of the late Classical period. My setting of the story is told from the point of view of Don Quixote, as he lays near death, in bed surrounded by books, half remembering, half hallucinating the life that has brought him to this point – the moment before his is about to end. Don Quixote (the tenor) is often both reanimated and confused when he recalls a memory. He hears voices, he sees things – the memories seem as real as when the events took place. At times comforting, and at times menacing, the voices of those most dear to Don Quixote throughout his life return not simply to reassure him of his recollection, but perhaps also to say goodbye in their own way.

Cervantes’s “Don Quixote” is a story that seems to have no bottom, no sides. It is an unwieldy, enormous tale. The characters are commonplace and still odd enough to keep us caring. It is the life lived, the life imagined by Don Quixote that shapes the entire existence of the story. The world inside his head is not imagined; it is tactile, represented in everything that surrounds him; it is his identity.

The work starts with Don Quixote dying, and is broken into vignettes, arias, instrumental interludes and recitatives. Each vignette recalls an important event or character (Sancho Panza, the young servant boy) from his life, all while focusing on the poignant longing he has for Dona Dulcinea. His is a unreconciled life. His quest is over the moment he finds a place to stop and remain.

“never was a knight” isn’t opera. It isn’t quite a song cycle either; it’s not a musical or an improvisation. The closest thing that this work resembles is the singspiel (sung-spoken) works of the late Classical period. My setting of the story is told from the point of view of Don Quixote, as he lays near death, in bed surrounded by books, half remembering, half hallucinating the life that has brought him to this point – the moment before his is about to end.

At times comforting, and at times menacing, the voices of those most dear to Don Quixote throughout his life return not simply to reassure him of his recollection, but perhaps also to say goodbye in their own way.

“never was a knight” was written for and is dedicated to Joe Dan Harper, with great admiration and affection. It is for solo tenor and seven instrumentalists show do a lot more than just play their instruments. The piece lasts 75 minutes.
