TROTTIER BIG BAND WOWS THEM AT UNH AND SEAPORT HOTEL, BOSTON


UNH Jazz Fest (March 12, 2011)
The Trottier Big Band was named “Outstanding Performance” by a Junior High/Middle School Band,

along with King Phillip Middle School of West Hartford, CT, at the annual “Clark Terry UNH Jazz Festival”

on Saturday, March 12, 2011.  With dozens of bands performing that day, Trottier Big Band was one of

only two bands selected for this high honor.


The annual Clark Terry University of New Hampshire Jazz Festival features guest artists, UNH jazz faculty, the UNH Jazz Band, and high- and middle-school students from throughout New England. Each year, the festival attracts jazz groups from about 60 high schools and middle schools throughout New England and New York. Performing groups include high school big bands, middle school big bands, jazz combos, jazz choirs, as well as solo vocalists. All groups are adjudicated and given written and recorded comments.


Massachusetts Music Educators Association (MMEA) 2011 All-State Conference (March 25, 2011)
The Trottier Big Band was selected to perform at the MMEA All-State Conference at the Seaport Hotel/World Trade Center in Boston on Friday, March 25, 2011.  Music groups from across the state submitted a recording of a performance in December 2010 to MMEA. Out of many, many applicants,

MMEA chose only six (6) ensembles from the entire state to play afternoon concerts during the 3-day conference. Trottier's Big Band shared the concert stage with the Handel and Hayden Society Young Men's Chorus. Several hundred families and music educators attended the concert in the Plaza Ballroom

of the Seaport Hotel.

Cubscout Pack 26 News. 

The scouts recently held their Blue and Gold Banquet at the Village Hall in Framingham. All of the Pack's scouts and their families came out to join in the festivities as eight Weblos II Scouts received the prestigious Arrow of Light Award, the highest award in Cub Scouting, and then they 'Crossed Over' into Boy Scouts, meaning their Cub Scout years have come to an end and they begin new adventures in Boy Scouting. The Pack also awarded trophies to their Pinewood Derby winners at the event. The Pack and Town races took place in January. Packs 26, 1 and 921 will each have 5 scouts competing at the District Pinewood Derby Championships on April 9th. Good luck, boys! (contributed photos)

Boston, MA & Hartford, CT (March 25, 2011) - The New England Clean Energy Council (NECEC) and the Renewable Energy and Efficiency Business Association, Inc. (REEBA) today announced plans to formalize the two organizations’ affiliate relationship.

As affiliate organizations, NECEC and REEBA will collaborate on policy efforts; hold joint educational and networking events and more in order to accelerate the development of the clean energy economy throughout New England.

“As we work to accelerate the clean energy economy in Connecticut and in the New England region, we are excited to work with the New England Clean Energy Council to increase our regional connections and strengthen our advocacy initiatives” said Paul Michaud, Executive Director of REEBA.

To celebrate their affiliation, on April 7th, NECEC and REEBA will host their first joint networking event at the Rocky Hill Marriott in Rocky Hill, Connecticut from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

We are pleased to welcome Chris O’Brien and Carolann Solebello to the Steeple Coffeehouse on April 9, 2011.

Chris O’Brien has made quite a name for himself in Boston’s competitive music scene and it didn’t take long for the rest of New England to catch on. Within three years O’Brien made a splash nationally after being chosen from a pool of nearly 1,000 contestants to appear on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion". The following week, Lighthouse became a bestselling singer/songwriter album on iTunes, peaking at #5. The album was also featured on iTunes “Best Albums of 2007” compilation. An added bonus: Actress Cobie Smulders (of How I Met Your Mother) included O’Brien’s song “Ocean Stone” on her iTunes celebrity playlist. O’Brien was nominated for a coveted Boston Music Award as well as being named WUMB’s “New Artist of the Year”. A captivating and engaging performer, O’Brien’s youth belies his maturity as a songwriter and vocalist.

 

Most familiar to folk audiences as a founding member of the female trio RED MOLLY, Carolann Solebello returned to solo performance in August 2010 after six years of steady touring with the band. A New York City native, Carolann first fell in love with mountain music – and the bluegrass and country that grew out of that tradition – while working as an actor in East Tennessee and Kansas. Tunes and techniques she learned from musicians in both places fundamentally changed her approach to songwriting and guitar playing, and subsequently colored her work with Red Molly.

Sudbury Valley Trustees

Nibbling on Natives in Your Backyard and Beyond

Wolbach Farm, Sudbury

Tuesday, April 5, 7:00-9:00PM

 

Sudbury Valley Trustees presents Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of “Wild Plants I Have Known...and Eaten”. 

 

This spring as you ponder your home landscaping plan, you might consider recent trends to use more native species in your yard.  Join Russ for a 90-minute slideshow entitled “Nibbling Natives in your Backyard and Beyond.”  Russ will feature at least three dozen species of native edible wild plants suitable for your home landscape or nibbling on as you encounter them in other locales.

 

Native species are quite useful for attracting and sustaining beneficial insects, plus many native species are edible by people too!  Perhaps this additional incentive is all you need to add native species to your yard.  Juneberries (Amelanchier spp.), for example, are equally edible by songbirds and people. The taste of the ripe fruit is like a cross between cherries and almonds.   There are also several species of wonderful native nut trees.  Russ’ favorite are Shagbark Hickory (Carya ovata) nuts, which taste like walnuts that have been lightly sprayed with maple syrup. Russ will explain how to process these and other native nuts and turn them into delicious baked goods.

 

Russ will also show the keys to the identification of each species.  You will also learn about the edible portions, seasons of availability and preparation methods, along with guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging.  

 

For nearly four decades Russ has been foraging and teaching courses about wild edibles.  Over the years, Russ and his wife Ellen have hosted "Harvest Parties" for their friends, for which they prepared several dozen dishes (appetizers, soups, salads, main courses, desserts, condiments, and hot and cold beverages), all utilizing wild ingredients.

 

Following the lecture, sample a foraged goodie or two made from edible native species.

 

Registration required.  SVT Members: Free, Non-Members: $10

EAGLE SCOUT CANDIDATE, RICK SCOTT,

BUILDS RELATIONSHIP WITH U.S. TROOPS:

ORGANIZES U.S. FORCES FOOD AND LETTER DRIVE

(Southborough, Ma. February 10, 2011) – Rick Scott, a Southborough Troop 1 Scout

working towards earning the prestigious Eagle Scout rank, is striving to build

relationships between US servicemen and women in Afghanistan and the Southborough

community through a food and letter drive. Many men and women who serve our

country were once local Scouts. In fact, Rick, a student at Worcester Academy, aspires

to join the service after college.

Rick’s Eagle Scout project is also inspired by the many troop drives he participated in

over his journey as a scout. Rick states: “As a Scout, you realize how important

communication is to the group’s success. Building the relationships is really the driving

force in my project. I want these individuals to see how much our community appreciates

the work they do. This support will help sustain them in their difficult environment.”

Here are the details:

Rick identified units serving in Afghanistan to whom he will send care packages filled

with non-perishables, entertainment items and, perhaps most importantly, letters for all

members of the unit.

The US forces food drive kicked off during the annual Troop 1 Pancake breakfast and

continues to accept donations through collection boxes at the Trottier and Neary schools,

as well as in most of the churches in Southborough. Additionally, donations can be

dropped off during the Boy Scout meetings, every Wednesday night between 7:00-8:30 at

Southborough’s Pilgrim Church. Rick asks members of our community to “please write

a letter to one of our soldiers, thanking them for their service. Also, remember to bring a

non-perishable, hygiene or entertainment item to send with it. I appreciate your help and

so will the soldiers who receive our packages this spring.”

 

Assabet Valley Mastersingers Present

Assabet Valley Mastersingers, in an enthusiastic welcome to spring, will present Carl Orff’s popular Carmina Burana on Sunday, March 20, 2011.  This “dramatic cantata” was inspired by an unusual collection of 13th century poems   discovered in a Bavarian monastery—surprisingly ribald and joyous to have been found in such a setting.  Vigorous accompaniment will be provided by two pianos and percussion ensemble.   AVM Artistic Director Robert P. Eaton will conduct the full ensemble, including renowned vocal soloists soprano  Merrycarol Yumi Wada, tenor Arthur Rishi, and baritone Philip Lima with the Algonquin Regional High School Concert Choir and the Assabet Valley Mastersingers.

 

Also on the program will be heard Johannes Brahms’ Neue Liebeslieder Walzer, opus 65, a group of lyrical, sometimes woeful, richly Romantic love songs.  For evident reasons, the 3:30 pm concert on March 20th has been dubbed “Wine, Women, and Song.”

 

The auditorium at St. Mark’s School, 25 Marlboro Road (Route 85) in Southborough is accessible to the physically challenged.  Assistive listening systems, courtesy of Crossroads Community Foundation, are available at all concerts for use by hearing impaired audience members. Large print programs will be offered to those desiring enhanced readability.  This concert has been graciously supported by a grant from Avidia Charitable Foundation.

 

Concert tickets may be purchased at Robinson Music Company, Westborough; Shattuck’s Pharmacy, Northborough; Shrewsbury Federal Credit Union, Shrewsbury; English Garden Florist, Southborough;  Arts Alliance in Hudson; and both Joy-Den Jewelers and Main Street Café in Marlborough.   Advance sale tickets are discounted $1 (one) from the general price of $20 (twenty) and $18 (eighteen) for students and senior citizens.

 

For further information call (978) 562-9838 or reference www.avmsingers.org.   Partial funding for the Assabet Valley Mastersingers, a non-profit organization, has also been provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council through local Arts Councils.
