When you’re buying your produce, seedlings, crafts and having fun at our Stonington Farmers Market this Friday from 10AM to Noon (or ANY Friday this summer for that matter!) be sure to check out the many not-for-profit orgs we have at the market. You’ll find their “booths” usually at the top of the hill near the School St entrance and they have a wealth of information to share about their wonderful causes. Case in point: you can get the season’s schedule for the Opera House Arts and more information/advance tickets/and logo product to support the arts in Stonington. Here’s one sample of entertainment planned this summer at OHA!:
GRAMMY WINNER PAUL SULLIVAN’S TALK SHOW/PERFORMANCE SERIES AT THE STONINGTON OPERA HOUSE TO FEATURE ROB KAPILOW, THOMAS WOLF
PS, I Love Music 2012 launches Sunday, June 17
Opera House Arts and Grammy Award-winning pianist and composer Paul Sullivan are thrilled to announce the second season of Paul’s new, live talk show and performance series at the Stonington Opera House: PS, I Love Music: Musical Expeditions with Paul Sullivan and Friends. The series is a radio-style program, designed for future broadcast and recorded before the live audience, spotlighting Sullivan’s personal network of fascinating musicians and composers and giving audiences a warm, intimate look at the world of music, from outstanding young Maine musicians to nationally renowned artists. The season’s premiere, hosted by Sullivan and featuring conversations and performances with his friends and special musical guests composer, conductor, and NPR host ROB KAPILOW, flutist and founder of Bay Chamber Concerts THOMAS WOLF, and student vocalist STEPHANIE COLAVITO, will be presented Sunday, June 17 at 7 pm. The second show, featuring a new slate of special guests, is scheduled for September 29.
“The concept is to take the audience backstage to the ‘green room’ of a concert hall, where the musicians are hanging out, maybe jamming a bit, or just talking about the things musicians talk about with each other,” Sullivan said. “Musicians are often quite unpredictable, passionate, and funny. I expect our conversations will be quite an adventure.”
