Today,1 in 68 children has been diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder. There are an estimated 500,000 teens and young adults with autism who will enter adulthood in the next decade looking for work. With fewer resources being allocated to adult services and even fewer businesses able to accommodate the needs of people with autism, many will lead lives of isolation and have minimal opportunities to engage in the workforce.

Spectrum Designs is committed to making a meaningful impact in the lives of those with autism. Since its inception, Spectrum has employed over 30 individuals with autism.  We have come so far in such a short amount of time and we look forward to the limitless opportunities the future holds for this thriving organization.

However, we cannot do it without your help. Autism is a lifelong neurological condition. Although there is no cure, there is hope in taking action.

Please join us on July 31st. Help us make a difference in the lives of people with autism.

While he may not have invented it, Mozart brought the piano trio to full maturity, and the K. 502 B-flat trio is among the finest ever to be written. Full of invention, sonic wonder, and perfect balance, it is a testament to the composer at the height of his compositional powers. Françaix’s evocative and humorous String Trio is the perfect companion. The second half of the program probes the emotional realm, first with Philippe Hersant’s evocative musings on the death of Helios followed by what is perhaps the greatest piano quartet in the literature, Schumann’s sublime E-flat quartet, whose slow movement contains one of the most beautiful and heartfelt melodies ever written.

Night fell far too early for Franz Schubert - he died at the tender age of 32. As his long night approached he burned ever brighter, producing some of the most beloved chamber music ever composed, including the monumental and radiant Cello Quintet, the last chamber work Schubert completed. The program opens with his rarely heard Notturno for Piano Trio, also written in his final two years, a glorious evocation of night. In between these masterworks, we will feature BCMF’s first commission, Ned Rorem’s aptly titled Bright Music, written for the festival almost 30 years ago, but like the genius of Schubert shining as brightly as ever.

The Patchogue Theatre for the Performing arts and The Incorporated Village of Patchogue Present an evening of original music by the bay. The critically acclaimed Live in the Lobby series moves down to Shorefront Park for a free concert featuring Long Island singer-songwriters Jessie Haynes, Claudia Jacobs, and Rorie Kelly.

Claudia Jacobs is a rare combination of soulful singer, heartfelt poet and spirited entertainer.  Her inspirations are culled from multiple styles including blues, folk, Americana, rock, R&B, and Jazz making her one of those difficult-to-categorize artists. Always entertaining, she can be heartbreaking one moment and rambunctiously brassy the next;  few performers can fill a stage as completely.  Her lyric topics embrace a wide range from the human experience simply and honestly; addressing joy, pain, injustice, and hope often with sass and humor.  Awarded the title “Long Island’s Favorite Soul Singer” by the Long Island Press and “One of the New York areas finest female singer-songwriters…” by WFUV’s John Platt; she has shared the stage with many folk icons and is winning new fans everyday from Maine to Minnesota.  www.claudiajacobs.com


Jessie Haynes has always had music as part of her life. She founded & became lead guitarist & primary songwriter for the all-female rock band, “Sweet Little Sister,” and opened for major acts all over Long Island, Manhattan, upstate New York, New Jersey & Connecticut. Haynes also formed a 4 piece acoustic, all female band to work on Long Island called Loona while SLS was popular, managing booking & promotion for both groups.

During this time, Haynes was hired to perform on rhythm guitar & backing vocals for “Blackmore’s Night,” ex Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore’s project, touring the world and making numerous live appearances on radio & TV.  Since then, she has recorded a number of solo albums,  continued to perform live at venues on Eastern Long Island, and has been hosting a monthly night of music at the Historic Vail-Leavitt Music Hall called Original Voices at the Vail in Riverhead where she manages and books as well as performs. www.jessiehaynes.com


Rorie Kelly is a small redheaded tornado of sound. Her aggressive acoustic guitar style complements raw, powerhouse vocals to pack a serious punch. First-time listeners often comment, “I can’t believe that voice came out of that!” The Long Island based singer/songwriter’s catchy, melodic style has been compared to artists ranging from Sarah Bareilles to Joni Mitchell to Janis Joplin. Rorie’s debut release, Wish Upon a Bottlecap, received airplay across the nation and her stellar followup CD called Sincerely Live features knockout performances of brand new songs and fan favorites, recorded Live in the Lobby at the Patchogue Theatre!  www.roriekelly.com.

At the center of this program is a new work commissioned from Academy, Grammy, and Golden Globe winning composer Howard Shore. Perhaps most well known for his gargantuan scores for Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings, Shore turns to a more intimate combination of instruments for a new work for mezzo, flute, cello, piano, harp, and percussion. Surrounding this colorful new work are pieces of vibrancy, effervescence, lightness and deep feeling. Featured are two sides of French composer Gabriel Fauré - his intricate, emotionally rich Piano Quartet in C minor and three tiny, delicate “Morceau’s.” A joyful work by Fauré’s young contemporary and countryman Maurice Tournier and a captivating song cycle by Spaniard Manuel de Falla round out the program.

Water water everywhere: Shamanism, sanitation and development among indigenous communities of the Pe
The Watermill Center
39 Watermill Towd Road
Water Mill
240 401 5649

The Amazon basin is the world’s largest source of fresh water. Yet as indigenous communities there have developed and their populations have become concentrated around government and missionary school houses, their traditional health and social systems have been overwhelmed by a series of challenges including parasitic, gastrointestinal. respiratory and other contagious illnesses as well as patterns of social conflict that have resulted in a virtual epidemic of witchcraft accusations. This lecture by medical anthropologist Glenn Shepard, who has worked in the Peruvian Amazon for over 25 years and made the Emmy Award-wining Discovery channel film “Spirits of the Rainforest,” discusses how traditional medical and shamanistic concepts have evolved in response to new health and social conditions. He also presents results of an innovative project funded by the non-government organization “Rainforest Flow (House of the Children)” that works within the local cultural and ecological context to provide clean water and sanitation projects to improve the health of children in remote indigenous communities.

Craftworks: Introduction to Nuno Felting
Craftworks: Introduction to Nuno Felting
Gallery North
90 North Country Road
Setauket
6317512676

Learn the basic techniques of Nuno felting. (“Nuno” is Japanese for “Fabric”) This felting technique was developed in the early 90′s and combines wool with a loose or open weave material in order to create a light weight fabric. Students will create a beautiful scarf out of hand dyed silk chiffon, a wall hanging or unique panel of fabric that can be sewn into a bag or pillow case etc. This class requires a little elbow grease, but the end result is worth the effort! Students are required to bring 2 towels and a bamboo mat or place mat that can be rolled.

Local artisan Justine Moody is a fine art graduate from Pratt Institute. She is a fiber artist, a potter, and a painter who finds inspiration in nature, age old craft techniques, and the symbology of Native American folk art. Her work ranges from non-functional three-dimensional pieces out of wool and silk, felted twists on everyday usable items, and bohemian inspired wearable art pieces and tapestries. She teaches a variety of craft felting and clay workshops throughout Eastern Long Island.

Date: Aug 16th
Time: 1-4 pm
Fee: $95

6:30 PM
At the ripe age of 23 Beethoven stormed the music capital of the world, Vienna, and used his Op. 1 piano trios as his calling card. A little more than 60 years later, another 23-year-old by the name of Johannes Brahms started writing his Piano Quartet in G minor, the piece he would later use to introduce himself to the Viennese. Both works have stood the test of time to become core pieces of the repertoire and both are amazing examples of daring and youthful bravura.  In between we’ve placed another iconic composer, American William Bolcom, whose Three Rags for String Quartet draw upon the vernacular in the same way that the final movement of Brahms’ piano quartet, a rollicking movement subtitled “Gypsy Rondo,” drew on the folk music of his day.

Some programs, such as this one, have many stories to tell. Opening the concert is a work based on a baroque passacaglia by Handel, but molded into a romantic showpiece by a Swedish composer named Halvorsen. Contemporary composer and Festival favorite Kevin Puts also looks back to the Baroque in his Four Airs, a unique work in which each of the musicians takes a turn performing with the pianist. Meanwhile, Kodály’s fascinating Serenade for Two Violins and Viola tells a story of night in three movements, complete with a midnight call to a lover’s window. Dvořák’s rich and opulent Piano Quartet which closes the program is a story to itself, a grand statement full of twists, turns and surprises.

Of all great child prodigies, perhaps none match the amazingly well-rounded Felix Mendelssohn. Beyond his ability as a composer, he was also a virtuoso pianist, a celebrated conductor, a talented painter, and an excellent gymnast. His music provides listeners the aural equivalent of brightly colored paintings and requires feats of performers best suited to highly trained athletes. The two examples on display in this program are evidence of his unsurpassed skill at creating elfin-like passages of spectacular beauty while displaying music of great depth. Written when he was just 19, Poulenc’s insouciant, Stravinsky-influenced Sonata for Two Clarinets provides perfect balance to the evening.

Perhaps the most famous of all serenades, Mozart’s “Eine Kliene Nachtmusik” opens the Festival’s final program. In reflection we offer Arvo Pärt’s Mozart-Adagio, a haunting and beguiling sliver of a work that reminisces on Mozart’s Piano Sonata K. 280, simultaneously bringing Mozart into the present while creating a sense of timelessness. We close the program with Brahms’ bucolic, pastoral Serenade No. 1. Originally intended as a nonet for strings and winds, at the behest of Clara Schumann, the ever-doubtful Brahms destroyed this version opting to score the work for full orchestra. We present a terrific reconstruction of the original instrumentation, capturing the intimacy of chamber music while maintaining the radiant exhilaration of Brahms’ early masterwork.
Tickets: $45/55
