THE ASYLUM QUARTET
Tickets:  $10 Suggested Donation at the Door
Info: 802-254-9276
Venue: Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery at 139 Main Street in downtown Brattleboro, VT

                                      Asylum               
             
Lauded for “nonstop virtuoso skills” (Times Herald-Record, New York), the Asylum Quartet plays everything from lush classical works, minimalism, and modernism to indie rock, world music, and klezmer, and electronic. The four classically-trained saxophonists (Joseph Abad - soprano saxophone, Anthony Speranza - alto saxophone, Max Schwimmer - tenor saxophone, Andrew Barnhart - baritone saxophone) met as graduate students at the The Hartt School in West Hartford, Connecticut in 2011. Most recently, the quartet took gold medals and the grand prize at the 2014 CMFONE International Chamber Music Ensemble Competition in Boston, Massachusetts. During the summer of 2014, Asylum will serve as artists-in-residence at Avaloch Farm Music Institute in Boscawen, New Hampshire.

All avid chamber musicians, members have previously garnered praise as winners of the J.C. Arriaga Competition (2012), national finalists in the MTNA Chamber Music Competition (2012), semi-finalists in the North American Saxophone Alliance Quartet Competition (2012), winners of the Paranov Concerto Competition at The Hartt School (2011), and winners of the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition (2010).

Recently, the quartet presented concerts at The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts and Cultural Center (Middletown, Connecticut), alongside the Hudson Valley Chamber Winds (Washingtonville, New York), at the Whitney Center (Hamden, Connecticut), and at Bravo Waterbury!, in an outreach concert for the El Sistema-inspired music education program. Repeat performances include Connecticut’s J. Rene Coffee Roasters Music Series and Manchester Community College "Live on Main" Series. In December of 2013, Asylum gave an in-studio interview and performance on WWUH's The 20th Century Limited, hosted by Larry Bilanski. Asylum actively promotes new music, and has commissioned composers Erberk Eryilmaz and Ryan Jesperson. Additionally, the quartet launched its first Call for Scores Competition in 2014 as part of its efforts to build and promote a new, unique repertoire for the ensemble.

The Asylum quartet is excited to be performing at H-DT&G for the first time. Asylum has a fun and exciting program planned including works for saxophone and electronics as well as other interesting arrangements and transcriptions.

                                Stockwell Brothers

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening bluegrass and newgrass by The Lonely Heartstring Band and The Stockwell Brothers.

The Lonely Heartstring Band is Berklee College of Music students George Clements, Patrick M'Gonigle, Matt Witler, Gabe Hirshfeld and Charles Clements.  Their music is a combination of old and new styles, melding the sounds of traditional bluegrass with modern songwriting and arranging.  The band began with a common love for the music of The Beatles, bringing some of their favorite songs to life while attempting to remain true to the original arrangements.

Bruce, Barry and Alan Stockwell's music spans traditional and progressive styles, but their trademark acoustic sound features new singer/songwriter material recast with banjo, alternative rhythms and three-part harmonies.  Featuring 2005 Merlefest bluegrass banjo contest winner Bruce Stockwell, the trio covers straight ahead bluegrass songs, finger picked acoustic guitar ballads, full tilt breakdowns and traditional mandolin tunes mixed in with more unusual fare - Americana melodies riding world beat grooves and Celtic, jazzy, even neo-classical instrumentals. “Tasty arrangements; brotherly harmonies, perfectly blended instruments and great songs.” – Music Revue

THE GRAMMAR SCHOOL STUDENT ART

                              Grammar School Student Art                                                                                                                                                                                                      
Art electives are a wonderful opportunity for seventh and eighth graders at The Grammar School to pursue in-depth studies in their choice of four mediums. For six weeks during the winter term, the students take one three-hour art class each week. They are excited to have the opportunity to discover new art processes and follow their interests, while building connections and deepening their skills. This year, we have two electives off campus. Nine students are learning black and white 35 mm film photography and darkroom processing at the InSight Photography Project, and six students are learning wheel-throwing pottery at Clayworks Studio, a new offering this year. On campus, parent and local artist Rachel Portesi is teaching film/video to eight students, where they shoot and edit their own music videos, and seven students are learning oil painting on canvas with art teacher Hannah Richards. 

Gallery Hours: During events at H-DT&G and by appointment. Call 802-254-9276 for other hours.
