  Shawn Stone, the Arts Editor of Metroland, lets us know what is coming to area stages and screens this week.

  The Music Haven Concert Series presents world-class concerts in Schenectady, NY. All their shows are scheduled to take place in Schenectady's Central Park on the Agnes MacDonald Music Haven Stage – with a rain-site at Proctors in case of inclement weather.

Mona Golub is the Music Haven Concert Series producing artistic director and she joins us to tell us what is left on their schedule for this summer.

  In 1994 in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, Thomas Lauderdale was working in politics, thinking that one day he would run for mayor. Like other eager politicians-in-training, he went to every political fundraiser under the sun but was dismayed to find the music at these events underwhelming, lackluster, loud and un-neighborly.

Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world and hoping to appeal to conservatives and liberals alike, he founded the “little orchestra” Pink Martini in 1994. One year later, Lauderdale called China Forbes, a Harvard classmate who was living in New York City, and asked her to join Pink Martini. The rest, as they say, is history.

Pink Martini has released eight best-selling albums of tuneful, sultry songs in 25 languages that blend world, jazz, pop, lounge and classical styles. They are playing at the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center in Chester, NY this Wednesday and at The Mahaiwe in Great Barrington, MA on Monday, July 13th.

Set in an apple orchard in the foothills of the Berkshires, PS21 Chatham presents the annual Chatham Dance Festival every August and a Performing Arts Festival of music and theater in June and July. PS21 Chatham programming also includes free performances for kids, dance and theater workshops, community sings, and free movie screenings. Performances are presented from mid-June through Labor Day.

PS21 was founded under the leadership of PS21’s Board President Judy Grunberg in 1999 to bring world-class performances to Columbia County and adjacent counties. We get a preview this morning with Judy and also welcome Amanda Boyd-Grout - Amanda is a professional singer who is participating in 2 of this summer's events, "Summer Shtick" and as a soloist in PS21’s Bach program which opens the season.

 

   Jazz vocalist Judi Silvano is celebrating the release of her new album of original songs, My Dance.

  Part of that celebration will include a concert in Marlboro, New York at Live@The Falcon with Joe Lovano's Trio Fascination featuring Doug Weiss and Carmen Castaldi and Judi Silvano with pianist Michael Abene.

  Albany Pro Musica – a community chorus performing at a professional level - was founded in 1981 by Dr. David Griggs-Janower who remained the group’s Artistic Director until he passed away in August 2013. This season coincides with the debut of APM’s newly appointed Artistic Director José Daniel Flores-Caraballo.

  Now entering its 34th season, Albany Pro Musica is known for its mastery of intimate a cappella works while also being recognized for its presentation of large scale choral orchestral works. In addition to performing a series of subscription concerts each year, Albany Pro Musica participates in civic, educational and community musical events, regularly partnering with local high schools as well as the Albany Symphony Orchestra and the Cathedral of All Saints Music Series.

Albany ProMusica was recently named the “chorus-in-residence” at Troy Savings Bank Music Hall and they’ll present a concert entitled Christmas Around the World on Dec. 13 and 14 at the Carondelet Hospitality Center in Latham, NY. With a lot to talk about we are joined by Albany Pro Musica’s new Artistic Director José Daniel Flores-Caraballo.
