Millay Arts and Poetry Festival: Gala
CMCA will be opening its doors to Millay Arts and Poetry Festival attendees for a gala in the main gallery preceding the evening performance of "Vincent" at the Strand Theater. Open bar and catered refreshments. "A big, beautiful, posh event to honor Festival attendees."
Sep 8 - Friday - 8:00pm - Rockland
Millay Arts and Poetry Festival: "Vincent"
The DSQ is collaborating on music and will perform as both musicians and actors in the premier of "Vincent," by Rockland playwright Alva Hascall. The piece is an imagining of what the last hour of Vincent's life might have been. The Quartet are onstage presences throughout the performance, lending energy as well as musical underscoring to the memory laden and emotional journey of Vincent's last hour. One (Lydia Forbes) has an acting part as well. They will perform music by Erwin Schulhoff (String Quartet 1-iv), Claude Debussy (String Quartet in G minor, Scherzo), Astor Piazzolla (Four for Tango), Richard Strauss (Don Quizote Variations), and Thomas Adès (O Albion).

Millay Arts and Poetry Festival: "Poetry Concert"
For the visual arts enthusiasts, this "poetry concert" has the DSQ providing an antiphonal musical response to actress Sarah MacDonnell's reading of Edna St. Vincent Millay's words and poems. Harbor Square Gallery is a repurposed historic building, a truly lovely environment to experience music, art, and poetry. An exhibit of Millay-inspired works in multiple media will be on display and In Good Company will cater a reception in the Muir Garden for Contemporary Sculpture following the concert. This concert requires a separate ticket from the general festival pass, as it is a benefit concert for Millay House Rockland.

program notes...
Dubbed the "Pitch Doctor" by Igor Stravinsky, multifaceted musician John Heiss celebrates his 50th year as faculty at NEC.
Appointed to the NEC faculty during the school's 100th anniversary in 1967, Heiss' 50th year at the school is celebrated with performances by students, faculty, alumni and even family. In addition to his own works being performed on this occasion, works by three of his most influential composers will also be performed. The program also includes the world premiere of "Four Plus Four Short Pieces," which combines four more short pieces written this year to the Four Short Pieces written over 50 years ago in 1961.
As faculty for flute, chamber music, composition, music history and music theory, as well as the Director of NEC's Contemporary Ensemble, John Heiss has been one of the most influential teachers for the last 50 years.

program notes...
Join the DSQ as they give an open rehearsal of Béla Bartók's Third Quartet. Get an intimate look at how a quartet—which, unlike an orchestra, has no leader—determines how to approach a new work. This piece promises to be especially interesting, as the DSQ have a unique relationship with Bartok, having had close ties to musicians who worked with the composer during his lifetime.
