Exhibit: Black History in Rural Connecticut

Tuesday May 1 - Saturday June 2
At the Academy Building, open weekdays from 9–1, Saturday May 26 from 10 - 1

Created by students at the Salisbury School. Peter McEachern developed a course for juniors and seniors at the school based on a cache of photos he found in his home, the former Fowlkes house, dating back to the 1930’s. “The Fowlkes family was one of several Black families who made a life here in this small mostly white rural Connecticut town,” said Mr. McEachern. “In the course, we are working to identify people and places in the photots and to learn their stories as well as the broader history of the area’s Black residents.”

Lecture: The Beethoven Cycle: A String Quartet’s Mt. Everest

Thursday June 7, 6:00 PM
at The White Hart

This summer, Music Mountain will present the Shanghai String Quartet in six concerts to perform what is considered to be the ultimate challenge for a string quartet: the Complete Beethoven String Quartet Cycle. The technical and emotional scope of the Beethoven Cycle is the Mt. Everest of quartet performance, a once-in-a-lifetime transformative event. This lecture-presentation is intended for all, beginners in particular, and will include short audio samples to describe how Beethoven’s 16 string quartets cover a groundbreaking transformation in music, both within the style of the composer himself, as well as within the process that paved the way from the Classical to the Romantic era in music. Co-sponsored by the Salisbury Association and the Scoville Memorial Library. RSVP Salisbury Association - 860-435-0566 or salisburyassn@gmail.com.
