This year we have the honor of hosting this important commemoration which will focus on the life and work of Eli Wiesel. In the way he lived his life, he ensured the memory of those who perished.

Dr. Diane Cypkin returns by popular request with another entertaining music concert/lecture.  Her subject is the prolific but relatively unknown composer Harry Warren.  For almost three decades Warren worked for four major film studios, easily churning out almost 250 songs, many of them becoming popular standards.  “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “I Only Have Eyes for You,” “Forty-Second Street,” “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby,” and “That’s Amore” are just a few  of his songs, and yet few people know his name!  Cypkin will talk about how certain songs came to be written, who sang the song and the song’s success with a bit of celebrity musical “gossip” of the period.  She will also perform some of Warren’s wonderful music.  Join us on Sunday, April 23 at 2:00 pm in the Memorial Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.  Registration is requested.

Dr. Diane Cypkin is an award-winning professor of Media, Communication, and Visual Arts at Pace University in New York where she has taught for more than twenty-five years.  She is a singer and performer known for her one-woman Yiddish/ English presentation on Molly Picon and has been a featured performer in concerts at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.  Also an actress and director, Diane has appeared in productions at the Soho Repertory Theatre, The New York Theatre Workshop, and The Lenox Theatre, among others.

Women often express an interest in being more informed about finances as related to their family, their children and themselves.  As part of Money Smart Week, the Fairfield Public Library is pleased to kick off a “Women and Money Roundtable” series.  Join us for roundtable discussions facilitated by financial advisor Julie Strayer and financial analyst Liz Maccarone.  The roundtable will meet on three consecutive Wednesday mornings to make it convenient for women with children in school.  All programs will meet in the Rotary Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.  Registration is requested.  Please register separately for each program, all are welcome.

The three programs offered are:

“Behavioral Finance: Why Smart People Make Bad Investment Decisions” – When it comes to financial and real estate markets, people aren’t always as rational as you would think.  Behavioral finance experts have been studying the not-so-smart decisions people make.  The fears, misperceptions and emotional needs people have often sabotage their investment and home sale returns.  Learn how to avoid mistakes and make decisions like the pros.
Wednesday, April 26, 11:00 am

“Children and Money” – The secrets to raising financially responsible children (ages 3-30) will be discussed.  Topics to be covered include: sorting through the pros and cons of an allowance; determining the appropriate allowance amount; teaching different lessons at different ages; managing spenders versus savers; and understanding when and how to give children the wings to make their own financial decisions.  Knowing the right time to give children credit cards will also be discussed.
Wednesday, May 3, 11:00 am

“The Keys to Building Your Investment Portfolio” – Building and managing a portfolio involves understanding and managing risk. Strayer and Maccarone will share the secrets of portfolio construction and discuss asset allocation, investment styles, diversification and risk.  Most important, they will show you how to put it all together to create a custom blueprint that meets your goals and tames your fears.

Fairfield Ludlowe High School  AUDITORIUM
“This very minute has history in it ~ we’re here!”        
That is an important motto of Mame Dennis, one of musical theatre’s all-time greatest heroines, in this brassy, tuneful, hilarious and touching adaptation of Patrick Dennis’s bestseller,  Auntie Mame. Jerry Herman’s celebrated score includes the rousing title number, plus “Open a New Window,” “If He Walked into My Life,” “We Need a Little Christmas,” “Bosom Buddies” and “That’s How Young I Feel.”
With spirit, humor, class and wit, MAME, a lively and entertaining musical comedy, tells the story of the fashionably eccentric Mame Dennis and her adopted nephew, Patrick. As a result of Mame’s extravagant lifestyle, Patrick is raised in an out-of-the-ordinary environment that is delightfully entertaining.

Music for Youth presents Jim Royle & Brian Ente, percussionists

720 Pequot Avenue, Southport, CT 06901 USA

website: www.musicforyouth.net

Pequot Library in partnership with Music for Youth present Jim Royle and Brian Ente , percussion April 29th,  2 pm at Pequot Library.

Join  us for the next MFY Free Young Persons’ Concert at 2 pm on April 29th at Pequot Library  featuring the internationally acclaimed teacher and percussionist Jim Royle and  Brian Ente.  They will explore the history of percussion through stories told on drums.  A post concert hands-on workshop will follow the presentation at  3 pm.  The audience is invited to stay for this engaging drumming workshop with Brian, Jim and student leaders.

Jim Royle is a native of Connecticut and former president of the state chapter of the Percussive Arts Society's for sixteen years, and 2000 Chapter President of the Year. Jim attended the University of Bridgeport as a percussion and education major under the direction of Howard Zwickler, Arthur Lipner, and Bill Finegan. Jim has also studied various aspects of percussion with world recognized masters such as Max Roach, Alan Dawson, Keith Copeland,  Akira Tana, Norbert Goldberg, Vernal Fournier. And Pan Master Professor Philmore.

Although Jim enjoys his own performance career, his love of music and the pleasure of passing this love onto future musicians are equally important to him. His studio now in its 20th year, is well known for turning out remarkable performers and all of his students are exposed to many aspects of percussion.. His students have performed with Neil Grover, Liam Teague, Tom Miller, Jonathan Haas, Arthur Lipner, Dave Samuels, and Michael Varner to name a few. In 2004 the advanced percussion ensemble had a piece commissioned by renowned percussion artist Michael Udow, Rio Grande Riffs that will be on a CD of his works to be released in 2006. Jim's students frequently go on to be collegiate music majors in percussion and younger students are well represented in summer music camps and pre-collegiate programs such as Juilliard. It is evident that Mr. Royle has forever touched the lives of these gifted performers.

Jim Royle's name has become synonymous with jazz in the New England club circuit and his articulate playing is documented on several CDs, including Storm Before the Calm on the Sea Breeze Jazz label (2000), as well as the more recent Jazz By Coogan, showcasing Jim's small-group talents. Jim is the drummer for the prestigious New England Jazz Ensemble big band, which is the combined product of Walt Gwardyak (pianist of the famous Buddy Rich Band). Jim’s latest CD with the John Judd Jazz Trio. Jim was added to Western CT State University summer faculty in 2006 to present, were he was in residence to present a week long steel drum workshop. Jim was also added to the prestigious faculty roster for KoSA  Percussion Workshop 2007 to present in Vermont, and Montreal.        

Brian Ente is a Musician and Composer who studied at Ithaca College with Gordon Stout and Conrad Alexander. As a Connecticut native, he is a former vice president of the state's chapter of the Percussive Arts Society, and works to improve the performance standards and education of percussion both in his local area of Bridgeport/Fairfield, and across the state, taking part as a composer and judge for both the western region music festival on the middle school and high school levels.

Brian currently works at the Jim Royle Drum Studio in Bridgeport, where he teaches music privately and composes for both solo students and ensembles. He runs the drum studio's D ensemble and is the assistant director of both the B and A ensembles. His pieces have been performed by the studio's ensembles both nationally and internationally.

Women and Money Roundtable -- Children and Money

1080 Old Post Road, Fairfield, CT

website: fairfieldpubliclibrary.org

Women often express an interest in being more informed about finances as related to their family, their children and themselves.  As part of Money Smart Week, the Fairfield Public Library is pleased to kick off a “Women and Money Roundtable” series.  Join us for roundtable discussions facilitated by financial advisor Julie Strayer and financial analyst Liz Maccarone.  The roundtable will meet on three consecutive Wednesday mornings to make it convenient for women with children in school.  All programs will meet in the Rotary Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.  Registration is requested.  Please register separately for each program, all are welcome.

The three programs offered are:

“Behavioral Finance: Why Smart People Make Bad Investment Decisions” – When it comes to financial and real estate markets, people aren’t always as rational as you would think.  Behavioral finance experts have been studying the not-so-smart decisions people make.  The fears, misperceptions and emotional needs people have often sabotage their investment and home sale returns.  Learn how to avoid mistakes and make decisions like the pros.
Wednesday, April 26, 11:00 am

“Children and Money” – The secrets to raising financially responsible children (ages 3-30) will be discussed.  Topics to be covered include: sorting through the pros and cons of an allowance; determining the appropriate allowance amount; teaching different lessons at different ages; managing spenders versus savers; and understanding when and how to give children the wings to make their own financial decisions.  Knowing the right time to give children credit cards will also be discussed.
Wednesday, May 3, 11:00 am

“The Keys to Building Your Investment Portfolio” – Building and managing a portfolio involves understanding and managing risk. Strayer and Maccarone will share the secrets of portfolio construction and discuss asset allocation, investment styles, diversification and risk.  Most important, they will show you how to put it all together to create a custom blueprint that meets your goals and tames your fears.
Wednesday, May 10, 11:00 am

Julie Strayer, MBA, CRPC, CIMA, CPWA, is a Senior Vice President and Wealth Management Advisor with Merrill Lynch.  Liz Maccarone, CRPC, is a Financial Analyst with Merrill Lynch and a graduate of Fairfield University.

website: pequotlibrary.org/index.php/calendar-events/icalrepeat.detail/2017/05/17/16344/-/music-at-pequot-music-of-the-gilded-age

Immerse yourself in the songs of yesteryear on May 17 to celebrate 124 years of music at Pequot Library. Dr. Orin Grossman, Music for Youth performers, and the Barbershop quartet Take 4 present the popular music of the Library's early years, (1890-1917). Experience Musical Theater, A capella Barbershop, Ragtime, and Popular Parlor Classics through song, dance, and a group sing-a-long. The program is free and open to all.

This special performance kicks off the Pequot Library Summer Music Series, and is being held in conjunction with the current Special Collections Exhibition, Pequot Founders: Building a Library and a Legacy.

In December 1893, Pequot Library held its first concert in the then brand new auditorium featuring the Yale Glee Club. Today the Library continues in founder Virginia Marquand Monroe’s footsteps by offering diverse and engaging musical performances featuring world-renowned artists who perform everything from Classical to Folk to Rock ‘n’ Roll. Music of the Gilded Age is free and open to the public.  Light hors d'oeuvres will follow the concert.

Dr. Orin Grossman has been delighting audiences the world over with his unique approach to performing and explaining great American and European music. As a performer he is in demand as an interpreter of the music of George Gershwin, playing his songs and classical compositions around the world, including Florence, Cairo, Australia, and St Petersburg, Russia, where he performed Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and gave the Russian premiere of Gershwin’s Second Rhapsody with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic to a standing ovation. He is Professor Emeritus of Visual and Performing Arts at Fairfield University.

Take 4 is a registered quartet in the international Barbershop Harmony Society. Take 4‘s members have a broad musical background, from classical piano to Doo-Wop and everything in-between. They love singing a great variety of songs - anything from The Beach Boys, to Doo-Wop, Country, or Broadway ballads; all done in the traditional Barbershop style. Take 4 was the winner of the 2016 Yankee Division Barbershop Quartet contest, and was the New England District’s 2016 Novice Quartet champions, and finished in the top 10 in the overall competition. They will be in Lake George, NY this May, competing for a spot in this year’s New England District Competition. Hear them at Pequot Library first!

Sweet Liberty starring Alan Alda

110 Myrtle Ave, Westport, Connecticut 06880

website: www.westportcinema.org/

Sweet Liberty (1986) PG 1:46
Saturday May 20, 2017 4:00 pm
Westport Town Hall

Sweet Liberty is directed by and stars Alan Alda as history professor Michael Burgess, who is initially delighted that his novel about the The American Revolution is being turned into a Hollywood movie. That excitement is short-lived, however, when the film crew arrives in his own North Carolina town and he realizes that they have distorted his work to be flashy, not at all historically accurate like his book. The stars of the movie (played by Michael Caine and Michelle Pfeiffer) wreak havoc on the love lives of the townsfolk, including Professor Burgess. Fed up with the whole mess, he enlists the help of the Revolutionary War reenactors to sabotage the filming.  

Tickets are $8 for Charter Members, $10 for General Public

This film is being shown in conjunction with the Westport Library’s 2017 BOOKED for the Evening, honoring Alan Alda.

1750 Ogden House Opens

Fairfield Museum and History Center

370 Beach Road, Fairfield, CT 06824 United States

1750 Ogden House Opens Sunday, June 4, 1pm – 4pm. Tours begin every ½ hour. Last tour is at 3:30pm.
Admission is $5, $3 Students & Seniors; Free for Members. (Closed July 9).
Located at 1520 Bronson Road, Fairfield, CT.

Step inside the Ogden House to experience life in 18th century Fairfield. David and Jane Sturges Ogden began their marriage here, settling into farm life and establishing a family legacy that lasted 125 years. Museum Docents lead guided tours giving visitors fascinating information and tidbits on the history of the house, its intriguing two hearths, and the everyday tasks and chores that kept the Ogden family busy.

The Ogden House contains fine furniture, spinning wheels, tableware, iron pieces, textiles, and other objects from the Fairfield Museum collections. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The newly expanded Colonial Kitchen Garden adjacent to the Ogden House is generously maintained by the Fairfield Garden Club. The garden complements the authentic colonial home with oyster shell paths and wooden markers to identify colonial-era plants. In 2013 an apiary was established to respond to the Honey Bee Colony Collapse Disorder and to signify the importance of beekeeping in colonial times. Bee pollination insured the garden's productivity — the key to surviving in colonial New England. The honey produced at the Ogden House is sold in the Fairfield Museum Shop in late summer.

This short documentary by Fred Cantor is based on the book The Real Rock & Roll High School: True Tales of Legendary Bands that Performed in Westport CT by Mark Smollin.
