Happy New Year, I hope that your 2018 is off to a good start!
This year, we’ll be branching out to experience more performing arts and film, in addition to our visual arts experiences. Beginning this month, we’ll be attending a Paul Taylor Dance Company performance at the Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University. In February we’ll continue with the Stamford Symphony’s New Maestro performances, with three concerts remaining in that series. Coming up in March will be a spring visit to Caramoor for a performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, performed by Colin Jacobsen, violin, Nicholas Cords, viola and Edward Arron, cello in their grand Music Room.
There will also be an added emphasis on film. In addition to our documentaries and special features at The Avon (such as Faces Places on January 23rd) and return visits to Jacob Burns Film Center, we’ll also be attending the Greenwich Film Festival in late May and the All Shorts Film Festival in Irvington, New York – usually held in the spring and fall.
We’ll be visiting our local museums, as well as galleries and art centers, both local and in New York City – more on their upcoming exhibitions soon. There’s a lot to look forward to in the months ahead!
