Video Corner: WASM Annual Art Show

Here is a short videos from the vernissage of this year's Art Show. Dr. Nancy Berman, our guest of honor, speaks about the Marianopolis Music Program and then we were treated to the student performances. Unfortunately because of the ambient noise levels I couldn't get a good recording of the very excellent guitar duo of Levi John Lewis and Darren Schwinghamer.

More Photos: WASM Annual Art Show

Lots of fun pictures from our vernissage and I am sure you will recognize familiar faces (starting with Lily Azerad-Goldman below). Will try and get some of the names in before I take off for the holiday weekend. Best wishes to everyone for a happy holiday and see you next week when we have our talk on the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.

Andrea Stewart

Last week was not only the opening of the annual art show. On Tuesday cellist Andrea Stewart performed for one of our musical programs. Sandy Baylin sent in these photos as well as her appreciation of the event: "I thought she played her instrument with focus and passion. Her brief descriptions of the pieces she performed were much appreciated and well received."

The music continued as part of the Annual Show, with pianist Derek Yaple-Schobert performing at Tudor Hall on both Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately I do not have photos of Derek concerts. If anyone does, and would like to send them along, I would be happy to post them here on the blog.
