Punch and Judy on Ice by Modern Times

PUTNEY- Southern Vermont’s favorite puppet theater event for young audiences returns for its 10th season of performances, workshops and school engagements. Sandglass Theater’s Winter Sunshine Series kicks off on Saturday, February 17th at 11am and 2pm with two public performances at Sandglass Theater.

“Punch and Judy On Ice” celebrates the season with a story of the world's most well-preserved puppet character! In this ever-evolving saga by Modern Times Theater, Mr. Punch is trying to beat the winter blues. He dances with his wife Judy, subdues a crocodile, trains his dog Toby (who looks suspiciously like a skunk), and more! Live music (played on everything from the ukulele to the bicycle pump) accompanies his hilarious journey.

Photojournalism: Take Better Pictures Today!

We all know that good picture gives a news story more impact, and a picture is worth a thousand words. But consider these questions:

How does one think visually to come up with images to complement your words?
What kind of photos are editors looking for?
What are the elements of an effective news photo?


The Last Dance: Life, Love & Loss in Music, Spoken Word & Movement

Guilford, Vt. - Friends of Music at Guilford's (FOMAG) annual Midwinter Musicale begins at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 17, in the sanctuary of Guilford Community Church. A propos for Valentine's week, this program is a multimedia consideration of love, as it is woven inevitably through the weft of life and loss, and it includes elements of music, movement, and the spoken word.

Last summer, Jessica Gelter, a former trustee and occasional soloist for Friends of Music, proposed performing David Lang's "Death Speaks" song cycle. Lang had won a Pulitzer Prize for his 2007 "Little Match Girl Passion," a choral work based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. To create this 2011 companion piece of five love songs in the voice of Death, Lang combined excerpted texts from a study of over 600 lieder by Franz Schubert. Mezzo-soprano Gelter will perform the resulting 25-minute work with baritone Tony Grobe, violinist Michele Liechti, guitarist David William Ross, and pianist Keane Southard.


Vermont Jazz Center Presents: The Marquis Hill Blacktet

Marquis Hill Blacktet to Appear at the VJC on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at 8:00 PM

Trumpeter Marquis Hill will appear at the Vermont Jazz Center on Saturday, February 17th, at 8:00 PM with his group, the Blacktet, which also features Joel Ross on vibraphone, James Francies on piano, Harish Raghavan on acoustic bass and Jonathan Pinson on the drums.

Marquis Hill emerged into the jazz limelight in 2014 after earning the prestigious award of top prize at the International Thelonious Monk Competition.  Leading up to this, his success was gradual and patiently earned - the result of a clear vision and a disciplined approach nurtured by mentors, hard work and natural talent. After receiving a Masters Degree in Jazz Pedagogy, Hill won first place in both the 2012 International Trumpet Guild’s Jazz Improvisation Competition and the 2013 Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition. One of his mentors, the masterful pianist Willie Pickens (R.I.P.) said in an interview that, when Marquis Hill would come over to his house to study, “he was always focused…every moment that we were together he was trying to get something out of me.” Hill’s earnest motivation to learn and grow are reflected in his successes: his prolific yet careful output, the proficiency he demonstrates on his instrument, his brilliant musical arrangements and his abilities as a bandleader to maintain an identifiable, tightly knit sound even when playing in varied styles.
