Weekly Newsletter - August 14, 2019
Coffee with the President,

Hey Tri-Staters, how is summer going for you all? While my month off is shaping up to be one of the busiest of my year, I am enjoying every minute of down time I can get! After my whirlwind visit to NYC, (hope you enjoyed some of the photos I shared last week), I reflected, and there was some sadness and desperation between the dramatic night skyline and the beautiful sunny parks. People everywhere are going through something, from physical maladies, to plain-old-bad-day-blues, to full on mental illness, so please be kind. Please. Be. Kind.

From time-to-time I like to check in here with everyone, and give a gentle reminder: If you or someone you know is overwhelmed, I encourage you to seek help. The list below comprises our members who are in the EMERGENCY/NON-PROFIT listing on our website, (most of whom are focused on humans) who are here to help. We want you and your families and friends to be the best selves you can be, and know that there is no shame in needing help. Best to you all!

It’s all about the chase. When hiking there is always a destination in mind – some remarkable reward at the end of the the trail. However, the greater thrill of hiking is the continual quest for discovery along the way. The little anomalies that lure us off the beaten path are what enliven our sense of adventure and keep us hot on the trail – a heart shaped rock, animal…
Crescendo presents
A Due Stromenti
17 th Century Italian Music with
Two Instruments

 Crescendo’s opening concert program of its 15 th season offers a musical glimpse of the rarely-heard, exquisite repertoire written for theorbo and harpsichord. Performances are 4 p.m., September 7 at Saint James Place in Great Barrington, and 4 p.m., September 8 at Trinity Church in Lakeville. Tickets are $35 general, $60 premium and $10 under 18. Tickets are available now at worldclassmusic.org/buy-tickets/ or at the door.
Theorbo, the largest member of the lute family, is not commonly seen on U.S. concert stages. It was used primarily to accompany small vocal and instrumental chamber ensembles as well as solo vocal music. Its role as a solo instrument was an afterthought, but innovators on theorbo left behind a small repertoire of high quality. Theorbo and its smaller version, a tiorbino, will be played by Heideki Yamaya, who is a specialist in lutes, early guitars and early mandolins. Based in New Haven, born in Tokyo, he is an internationally acclaimed musician who has performed in Canada, Japan, Great Britain, Germany and Italy.
Crescendo’s founder and artistic director, Christine Gevert, will play the harpsichord and organ in this concert. While conducting, performing and recording in Europe and South America she led masterclasses and workshops in early music and harpsichord, and taught historic keyboards at the Berlin Church Music School in Germany. Most recently, she was invited to play solo harpsichord recitals at the Early Music Festival in Narol, Poland, the historic Auditorium Wanda Landowska near Paris, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Beat Festival.
