The Art of Tarot @ Genesee Valley Council on the Arts

Have you ever received a tarot reading and thought, “Wow, I wish I could do that”? Are you trying to learn tarot on your own but struggling to memorize the meaning of each card?

Tarot is a form of divination that has been around for centuries. You don’t need to have psychic powers or follow any particular spiritual path to read tarot. Nor do you have to memorize every keyword in the guide book to perform an effective reading.

The tarot is a wonderful tool for tapping into your intuition and deepening your self-inquiry. In this hands-on workshop, we’re going to explore ways to connect with the cards so that you can be on your way to reading for yourself and others.

This workshop will cover:
The history, art, and symbolism of the tarot
Tarot deck structure: Major Arcana, Minor Arcana, and Court Cards
Making personal connections with the cards
Telling a story in a tarot spread
Using the techniques we discuss, you and your fellow students will practice reading for one another in pairs or small groups.

This class is for anyone who has been curious about tarot or has read tarot before but may want a fresh approach to the cards.

Please bring a copy of the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck or another tarot deck of your choice to class if you have one. A limited number of extra decks will be available to borrow during the workshop.

PLEASE REGISTER BY calling 243-6785 by THURSDAY, APRIL 19th.
COST: Members Pricing: $45/Nonmembers Pricing $50

Round and Square Dance with Kelly’s Old Timers and Geneseo String Band @ York Central School
Apr 28 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Genesee Valley Council on the Arts invites you to our annual Round & Square Dance on Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 7:30-10:30 p.m., in the elementary gymnasium at York Central School, 2578 Genesee St., Retsof.  Admission is $5 Adults; $3 Spectators, 18 & under free and all ages are welcome.  Music and calling will be provided by Kelly’s Old Timers, now counting 60+ years of performing, along with members of the Geneseo String Band led by SUNY Geneseo Professor, Jim Kimball.
If you’ve never been to a square dance, you can come early at 7:00 p.m. and learn the basic steps.  No special clothing or prior knowledge is required—beyond knowing one’s left from one’s right!  The dance is truly a fun evening for all ages, and a great opportunity to enjoy a longtime local tradition. Refreshments will be available.
Eric Kelly, leader of Kelly’s Old Timers and MS-HS instrumental music teacher at York, tells us that many a square dance was held in the gym in years past.  The band was started by his uncle, Woody Kelly and father, Roger in the 1950’s.  The group continues with Doug Kelly calling the dances and playing bass, Eric on keyboards and vocals, Guy Macaluso on keyboards, vocal, trumpet and guitar, and Tom Kwiecien on drums.  Members of the Geneseo String Band will join the group on fiddles, guitar, banjo, mandolin and washboard.
The event is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.  For more information visit our website at www.gvartscouncil.org, or call 585-243-6785.

Brockport Symphony Orchestra Soloist Showcase Concert @ St.Luke's Episcopal Church
Apr 29 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

The Brockport Symphony Orchestra will present their “Soloist Showcase” Concert on Sunday, April 29, 2018, 4pm in the historic sanctuary at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 14 State Street in the Village of Brockport. Admission and parking are free, and canned items for the Brockport Ecumenical Food Shelf and donations for the Orchestra, St. Luke’s, and the Food Shelf will be gratefully accepted at the door.

Directed by Jonathan Allentoff, this concert will feature concertmaster Jaesun Han, principal flute Melissa Szurgyi, vocalist Mary Wojciechowski, and guest composer and pianist Emmanuel Sikora.

Han, who has appeared as a soloist, ensemble performer, and recording artist in South Korea, Russia, Israel, Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, and the United States, will perform the Allegro movement from Mozart’s “Violin Concerto No. 4.” Szurgyi, a senior at The College at Brockport who received the 2018 SUNY Chancellor’s Award, will perform “A Dutch Idyll” for Flute and Orchestra by Louis M. Gottschalk. Recently featured as soloist at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and the Corning Museum of Glass, Wojciechowski will sing Gustav Mahler’s “Liebst du um Schönheit”, “Around the World in 80 Days” by Victor Young and Harold Adamson, and “How Are Things in Glocca Morra?” from “Finian’s Rainbow” by Burton Lane and E. Y. Harburg.

The orchestra will perform the world premiere of Sikora’s “Three Prom Dances”, which he composed for the Brockport Symphony Orchestra. A graduate of Binghamton University and the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, Sikora’s works were recently performed and recorded by the Lviv Philharmonic in Lviv, Ukraine and have been broadcast on radio and television.

The program also includes Tomaso Albinoni’s “Sinfonia in C Major” and the theme from “Beauty and the Beast” by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.

There will be a complimentary dessert reception in Parish Hall following the performance.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts, a member supported organization.

Dady Brothers Concert
May 4 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The Dady Brothers will present a wide variety of music performed on multiple instruments. Joe and John Dady are well known and loved in Western NYS for their traditional Irish music, as well as for more modern bluegrass, country and folk music, much of which they have written and recorded themselves. The brothers are virtuoso players on fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bodhran, banjo, uilleann pipes, harmonica, and penny whistle, as well as being smooth vocal singers. Members of the Cal-Mum Elementary School Ukulele Club will have an opportunity to work and perform with John and Joe Dady.

The Cal-Mum Uke Club is in its 11th year and is currently under the direction of Tom Toyama, music teacher at Caledonia Mumford Central School. This concert will include eight to ten of the approximately forty-five 4th and 5th graders in the Uke Club. The Dady Brothers will meet with the Uke Club members at school to work on a number of songs for the program.

While the concert is free there will be free-will offering baskets at exits. This allows the church to cover the cost of the musicians, but will encourage attendance by neighbors for whom an admission fee is prohibitive.

A reception following the concert will allow the audience to enjoy time with the musicians.
