Michael Arnowitt and the ImproVisions Jazz Quintet
I'll be performing on piano with some of my favorite Vermont jazz musicians from the 30 years I lived in Vermont. I'll be joined on stage by:
Dave Ellis, trumpet
Dan Silverman, trombone
Clyde Stats, bass
Caleb Bronz, drums
The program: 'When Jazz Meets Classical,' and contains a mix of my own original jazz compositions from my 2018 CD Sweet Spontaneous, some excerpts from my Jazz Suite from West Side Story, and some jazz arrangements of mine influenced by classical music of Chopin, Debussy, Stravinsky, and Copland.


The last two will be Vermont premieres of work I've done just in the last few months: 'Interlude with Igor' is based on Stravinsky's famous early ballets Petrushka and The Rite of Spring, and 'Coplandscapes' is based on Copland's Appalachian Spring, Fanfare, and Billy the Kid.
Should be a pretty creative evening enjoyable by all.

Learn How to Read a Pattern ...and know what it all means, teacher: Lee One class
Level: Anyone who wants to read patterns and understand them
$25.
here is so much to reading a pattern. Sometimes you need to learn a whole new vocabulary. In this workshop, we will look at all aspects of the written pattern including how to interpret the charts and chart keys, studying the schematics and understanding what they will tell you about the finished garment, hints about the yarn gauge information can provide, looking at the photography to see if the photos have been styled to hide garment weaknesses, what all those parentheses and brackets mean, sizing and more. Feel free to bring a pattern you are contemplating, or just learn from the sample pattern provided at the class.

Concert: Apollo's Fire: Vivaldi's Four Seasons-Rediscovered

Apollo’s Fire present Vivaldi’s beloved concertos, The Four Seasons, as the revolutionary acts of musical storytelling they were meant to be bringing Vivaldi’s pictorial descriptions to life.
If you thought you knew the Four Seasons, be prepared for surprises. From the bird calls and storms to a barking dog, flies and wasps, drunken peasants, an exhilarating fox hunt with “gunshots,” and more… the story that Vivaldi intended with these pieces is made clear as each concerto is preceded by a quick and polished “tour” of the sound effects to come. The virtuoso musicians of Apollo’s Fire take turns stepping into the spotlight as a different soloist leads each concerto.
