Metropolitan Wind Symphony Band Concert: Dances
Sunday May 4, 2014
3:00 PM until 5:00 PM

The Metropolitan Wind Symphony will continue their 43rd season with their Spring Concert, Dances, on Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 3:00 pm, at Cary Hall, 1605 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA. MWS Music director Lewis J. Buckley will conduct the program. Featured on this program which celebrates the world of dance will be Rolling Thunder by Henry Fillmore, Postcard by Frank Ticheli, and Carmina Burana by Carl Orff/arr. John Krance. Talented student musicians will join the MWS musicians for these selections: Dances of Innocence by Jan Van der Roost, Turkey in the Straw arranged by Lewis Buckley, Solitary Dancer by Warren Benson, and English Folk Song Suite by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Mr. Buckley will deliver a pre-concert lecture at 2:30 pm.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $14 for seniors, $6 for students, and are free for children under 5. They are available at the door or can be reserved by telephone. Call the MWS Concert Line at (617) 983-1370 to reserve or purchase tickets. Visit the MWS web page at http://www.mws-boston.org for information and directions. Email mws@mws-boston.org with any questions.

Dances, our Spring Concert this year (so named for the number of dance-related selections on the program) is lively, interesting, and varied.

We will again open with a march, but this time its not Sousa; its the famous Henry Fillmores circus march, Rolling Thunder. Fillmore, a trombonist himself, wrote a number of trombone features including, most famously, Lassus Trombone. Not surprisingly, this march also features the trombones.

We next proceed to the music of one of our favorite composers, Frank Ticheli, in this case his compact and difficult Postcard. Famed wind conductor H. Robert Reynolds commissioned Ticheli to write Postcard in honor of his mother, following her passing. The title is based on the fact that Reynolds always sent postcards to his mom from wherever in the world his many guest-conducting engagements took him.

Reynolds asked not for an elegy commemorating her death but a short, energetic piece celebrating her life. Ticheli certainly delivered; this piece is bursting with energy. He also used a highly unusual compositional technique; the opening 42-note theme is a palindrome. A theme consisting of the same pitches both frontward and backward, it is based on the Reynolds family tradition of giving their children palindromes as first names, including Harrah, Reynolds own first name.

We close the first half of our program with a wind band transcription of Carl Orffs massive Carmina Burana. As major choral texts go, these Latin texts are fascinating in that, although found in a monastery, they are highly secular poems dating back to the traveling troubadors of the 11th to the 13th centuries. This is powerful music that translates beautifully from chorus to wind band. Widely used as background music in television and motion pictures, the opening and arguably the most famous theme, O Fortuna, is one of those rare, instantly familiar motifs that have become part of our culture.

Both private and public school students of the many music teachers in MWS will join us for the second half of the concert. Middle school students will join us first in Jan Van der Roosts Dances of Innocence. Although this piece, like Postcard, is a commemoration of someone deceased, in this case a 14-year-old girl, Dances, like Postcard, celebrates the beauty, cheerfulness, and innocence of the young girl it commemorates rather than the sadness of her death.

Next we will take music director Lew Buckleys arrangement of Turkey in the Straw. This light-hearted set of variations on the famous fiddle tune features as soloists the clarinet, flute, and the [in this case] comical sounds of the rumbling contrabass clarinet.

The high school students will next join us on stage for prolific composer Warren Bensons Solitary Dancer. This piece is imbued with excitement, but in a fascinating twist, it is subdued excitement struggling to break free. The expression of these tightly wound emotions takes place through subdued dynamics, the use of hand clapping, singing using the syllable din, and unusual percussion combinations.

We will close the concert with one of the concert band masterworks of the early twentieth century, Ralph Vaughan Williams famed English Folk Song Suite. In an era when most band music was transcribed from orchestral compositions, an original wind work by a composer of Vaughan Williams stature immediately became a staple in the relatively small wind repertoire. The two outside movements are cheerful and light, and the middle movement is hauntingly beautiful.

Citizens for Lexington Conservation: Bird Walk in Dunback Meadow
Wednesday May 7, 2014
8:00 AM until 10:00 AM

In early May we are in the midst of several weeks of migration at Dunback Meadow as many species of birds quickly head north to their breeding grounds as well as the many birds who come to this area to spend the summer. In addition, we may find some of our residential birds, such as woodpeckers and hawks.

Although the ground is slightly rough, the pace is slow so the walk is accessible to most. Children with adults and beginners are welcome. We will enjoy a varied habitat, including mixed woods, open fields, and a stream. Bring binoculars if you have them. Boots are recommended if there has been rain recently. Rain or lightning will cancel the walk.

Building a Healthy Future: Setting Our Goals for the Next Generation
Saturday, May 3rd from 9:30 AM 12:30 PM at Cary Memorial Hall, 1605 Mass. Ave., Lexington, MA

Many Massachusetts communities like Lexington are embarking on their biggest building campaigns in a generation. This is an excellent time to have a conversation about how the next generation of municipal buildings can help us achieve our goals for the next generation of our students, teachers, and public employees. Studies show that buildings with clean and healthy air, lots of natural sunlight, great thermal comfort and moisture control, result in fewer sick days, improved staff productivity, heightened student participation, and even higher test scores! Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) has recently launched the Pathways to Zero Net Energy program to encourage the construction of zero-net energy buildings throughout the Commonwealth.

Weve got an amazing panel: Paul Eldrenkamp, Owner, Byggmeister Sustainable Builder & Chair, 2013 Building Energy Conference?Ellen Watts & Dan Arons, Co-founders Architerra Sustainable design and zero net energy building architects?Ellen Tohn, Tohn Environmental Strategies Nationally recognized expert on indoor air quality & healthy buildings?Tina Halfpenny Director of Energy Efficiency at the Mass Dept. Energy & Environmental Affairs (DOER)

The panel will address these questions:

- What goals should we be considering for the next generation of our buildings?
- How can high performance buildings benefit our health, productivity, and resilience?
- Are zero-net energy and zero-emission buildings possible and affordable in Massachusetts?
- How do we choose the best sustainable building standards for our community?
- What support is available to help our community get started building a healthy future?

Who should attend? Anyone interested in the health, efficiency, and resilience of public buildings in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This workshop is open to the publicregardless of where you live.

YOU'RE A GOOD MAN CHARLIE BROWN
Friday May 2, 2014
7:00 PM until 8:45 PM

YOURE A GOOD MAN CHARLIE BROWN Good grief! The perfect family show will be presented by The Lexington Players starring that loveable balding round-headed boy with unfortunate luck, and everyones favorite beagle at his side! Musical snapshots show Schroeder and Lucy at the piano, Charlie Brown and Lucy at the psychiatry booth, Linus with his blanket, Snoopy with his supper dish, and the whole gang at the baseball game. This award winning musical captures Charles Schulzs ability to portray universal aspects of human nature through the mouths of children. People may remember the launch of Kristin Chenoweths career when she performed the song My Philosophy as Sally at the Tony Awards in 1999. While the title of the musical suggests a childrens show, there is something sure to be enjoyed and rediscovered by all ages.

Our recent productions of 13 and Spring Awakening played to sold out audiences and received standing ovations, said the energetic and smiling Producer of The Lexington Players, Sal Jones. And we were thrilled with the support we received from the local businesses, there are some wonderfully generous people in Lexington who are making dreams come true. Their ads in our playbill really help cover expenses.

Happiness is two kinds of ice cream, sharing a secret...or reliving the sweet innocence of youth with Charlie Brown and Snoopy. Hilarious comedy animated by high-energy dancing create non-stop entertainment for adults and children alike. The Cast Includes: Eric Knight, Emma Stewart, Gabriella Huggler, Monica Whitlock, Declan Tellier, Zachary Sneeringer, Andrew Sneeringer, Lexi Welch, Tee Bartee, Tee Bartee, Sophie Kahn, Yoojee Kim and Hannah Taylor. Directed by Mario Salinas, Musical Direction by Bob Cook with Choreography by Katrina Rotondi. Performances: May 2,3 & 9, 10 at 7:00PM. Tickets are $16 for adults and $14 for students/seniors. Tickets can be purchased at www.lexingtonplayers.org, at The Crafty Yankee, Wales Copy Center or by calling (781) 910-8114. Group discounts available.
