Gt. Barrington, MA–Close Encounters With Music Gala: LENNY AT 100 – Feel the BERNstein! @ The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
Jun 9 @ 6:00 pm

$27 Upper Balcony  or $50 Orchestra and Mezzanine

Acknowledged as possibly the greatest conductor the U.S. has ever produced, Leonard Bernstein was dashing, brilliant and eloquent; a dazzling pianist, lecturer and cultural figure who redefined the word “charisma.” Equally at home on the concert stage and Broadway, when summer came, he headed to the Berkshires, where important friendships were forged with Aaron Copland,  and other legendary musicians.

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth, we present a musical portrait of a versatile career, with his vocal and piano music and that of composers he championed—Mahler, Sondheim and Ives; selections from Kurt Weill‘s Threepenny Opera, Foss‘s cowboy piece Capriccio, and Copland‘s El Salón México. A delightful romp through the music scene circa 1950 as barriers began to come down among genres. Glitter and be gay and experience the Bernstein phenomenon!

Michael Chertock, piano; Danielle Talamantes, soprano; Kerry Wilkerson, baritone; Rachel Lee Priday, violin; Yehuda Hanani, cello

Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the 1989 Grammy Awards show. For several years, her popularity grew around such memorable originals as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs” and “Ain`t It Heavy,” for which she won a Grammy® in 1992. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am (1993). The collection featured the massive hits, “I`m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought Etheridge her second Grammy® Award for Best Female Rock Performance. In 1995, Etheridge issued her highest charting album, Your Little Secret, which was distinguished by the hit single, “I Want to Come Over.” Her astounding success that year led to Etheridge receiving the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996.

Becket, MA–Ragamala Dance Company @ Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival
Jun 20 @ 8:15 pm

8:15 pm– 6/20, 6/21, 6/22, 6/23
2:15 pm– 6/23, 6/24

“Soulful, imaginative, and rhythmically contagious,” (The New York Times) Minneapolis-based Ragamala Dance Company is highly acclaimed for creating a genre of performance that brings together a contemporary Western aesthetic with an Indian ethos. Sharing the South Indian classical dance form of Bharatanatyam with audiences for over 25 years, Ragamala presents their multi-disciplinary work Written in Water.

Conceived by Artistic Directors and Doris Duke Performing Artist Awardees Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy—and inspired by the second century Indian board game, Paramapadam (the precursor to Snakes & Ladders)—the work explores parallels between ecstasy and longing in Hindu and Sufi thought. With original artwork and a score by Doris Duke Performing Artist Awardee Amir ElSaffar, Written in Water brings together internationally celebrated artists and features a live music ensemble with a distinct alchemy of Iraqi, jazz, and Carnatic instruments.
