    Location: 45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960
    When: May 5, 2013
    Time: 4:30 pm

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is delighted to welcome back family descendent Adriane Post to perform “Post-Baroque: The early string quartets of Haydn, Beethoven and Boccherini" with the Diederot String Quartet on Sunday May 5th at 4:30pm.  Ms. Post is the great-granddaughter of Dorothea Miller Post, who was the last family member to live at Macculloch Hall. Dorothea was born at the family home in 1878 and lived there until she died in 1947.  Adriane Post performs on the violin that Dolly, as Dorothea was known, received as a gift from her brother. The 18th century violin was thought to be one of the best he could find for her in New York at the time.  The instrument appeared in many chamber music parties and performances at Macculloch Hall. Passed down through the Post family, Adriane now uses this violin as a baroque instrument, as it would have been used during the early part of its life, before her great grandmother updated it for “modern” use.

     

    Adriane Post can be heard across the US with ensembles such as Apollo’s Fire, Trinity Wall Street Baroque Orchestra, Handel and Haydn Society, Washington National Cathedral Baroque Orchestra, and as co-concertmaster and soloist with New Trinity Baroque. Adriane received her undergraduate degree from Oberlin Conservatory, and her Master of Music as part of the inaugural class of Juilliard’s Historical Performance program. For her performance at Macculloch Hall, Adriane will perform with her group The Diderot String Quartet, highlighting repertoire of the early string quartet, a new musical genre expanded in the classical period (1750-1820).  The group will perform three quartets spanning the Galante and Viennese Classical styles, culminating in the dramatic genius of young Beethoven.  The other members of the Diderot String Quartet are violinist Johanna Novom, violist Kyle Miller, and cellist Paul Dwyer.  Novom has been Associate Concertmaster of Apollo’s Fire since the completion of her Master’s degree at Oberlin Conservatory. She was a 2010-11 fellowship member of the Yale Baroque Ensemble, and has recorded with the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Concert Royal.  Violist Kyle Miller earned a Master of Music degree from Juilliard and is a member of their Historical Performance program, in which he studies with Monica Huggett and Cynthia Roberts. This July, Kyle joined the Juilliard Orchestra for a BBC Proms Festival concert in London's Royal Albert Hall. Lastly, Cellist Paul Dwyer has commissioned, premiered and recorded new works for solo cello and baroque cello, and has appeared as soloist with orchestras across the country. In 2012, he performed the world premieres of six solo and chamber music works by young composers in a concert at Carnegie Hall. Paul holds a Bachelor's degree from Oberlin Conservatory, and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Michigan. Funding has been made possible for this program in part by funds from Morris Arts through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. Assisted Listening Devices will be made available for this event. 

     

    This performance will take place in conjunction with the current exhibit in the main gallery at Macculloch Hall Historical Museum  “A Fine Collection: Treasures from the Vault” showcasing vivid examples of the antique Oriental rug collection, complemented by textbook examples of fine porcelain, silver, glass and furniture collected by Museum founder, W. Parsons Todd.  “A Fine Collection” has a perimeter layout in the first floor gallery which leaves the center of the room open for a series of speakers and musical programming.  Musical programs take place on the first Sunday of the month at 4:30pm and speakers on the third Sunday of the month, through June 2013.  Tickets for Sunday programs will go on sale from 1pm on the day of the program, no advance sales.  A separate ticket ($12) is required for the musical programs; discounted ($10) for members, Seniors, Students and those who purchased a Museum tour ticket that afternoon.  House tours (regular admission applies) take place throughout the afternoon, the last tour leaves at 3pm. On program days the upstairs galleries will remain open until 4:30pm, the “A Fine Collection” exhibit will close at 3pm in preparation for the program.

     

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum preserves the history of the Macculloch-Miller families, the Morris area community, and the legacy of its founder W. Parsons Todd through its historic site, collections, exhibits, and educational and cultural programs. The Museum is open for house and exhibit tours on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. The last tour leaves at 3pm. Adults $8; Seniors & Students $6; Children 6 – 12 $4.

    Join the ladies of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. as we host our second Blood Drive this semester. We were so successful with "We Bleed Blue" that we are at it again!

    Earlier this year, the Psi Pi chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. volunteered with the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society in their annual Light the Night Walk in Verona Park. We were so moved by the experience and learned that the thousands of children and adults whom suffer from these diseases utilize the donated units in transfusions of blood and platelets everyday.

    This Blood Drive, we are donating Blood for patients like Leah. She was diagnosed with leukemia when she was just 15 months old. She receives chemotherapy and more than 50 transfusions of blood and platelets. We are asking that you come out to Seton Hall on APRIL 15 and donate Whole Blood or Platelets in the University Center-Main Lounge between 12:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Hope to see you there!

    Jeremy Moss | ON THE ROAD | Photography

    On Display | April 2 - 30, 2013
    Reception | Saturday, April 13th | 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


    GAS Gallery And Studio is pleased to welcome back Jeremy Moss for a second solo photography exhibition, ON THE ROAD. The show celebrates Moss’ recent additions to his ongoing exploration of nature detail and meditative imagery. The opening reception will be held Saturday, April 13th 2013, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

    With ON THE ROAD, Moss continues to engage us with Zen-like images of nature and presents another opportunity to ponder the exquisite duality of the simple and complex. Moss’ artful mastery at capturing color is heightened by his dramatic sense of composition.

    Merely hinting at what lies below the surface, images of pond flowers and lily pads are bold and graphic, exploding out of the ink-black background we can only assume is water. Adding to the aquatic dwellers’ beauty and magnetism is their overt iridescence and glow.

    Black-and-white images of desolate roadways, steel-trussed urban-scapes, a derelict factory and a dormant warehouse invoke a sense of nostalgia, solitude and wonder at what was, what is and what might be. With ghostly highlights and haunting shadows, these scenes are treated with rich, high-contrast tonalities. Largely free from human form and appearing to be suspended in time, we are challenged to identify these scenes as yesterday or yester-year.

    The aura of suspension of both time and space in all these images is enhanced by their printing onto frameless aluminum sheets or metallic papers. As these frameless elements find harmony with the luminescence of the metallic substrates, the ‘floating’ images are liberated from their two-dimensional confines, and we begin to sense that we are not looking at them, but rather peering through portals into other realities.

    All images are editions of 25.



    ARTIST STATEMENT |

    The Moment,
    A culmination of available light, subject matter and timing.
    Being in the moment,
    Design, detail, form, function, impressionist or abstract.
    A moment; captured.


    JEREMY MOSS |
    Having studied photography and graphic art in the U.K., Jeremy’s journey to the artist of today has been a combination of fine art shows and editorial assignments.

    His photographic, fine art limited editions have been shown throughout the greater New York metropolitan region in solo shows, juried fine art shows and group shows. He prints his editions onto frameless aluminum sheets or metallic paper in frames. An average size of an edition is 25. His work is held in both private and corporate collections, domestic and international.

    Jeremy is also a painter and mosaic artist. His paintings are mostly abstract textural pieces that have a definite relationship with his fine art photography. Working mainly with open acrylic paint he adds fiber to this to build up textured layers. The latest work has been under-painted then painted over with acrylic and molding gel, and then this paint mixture is ‘pulled’ to create subtle texture. Jeremy is also an educator, teaching photography and mosaics at a local art center and heads photography enrichment classes at local elementary schools.

    He is a native of Leicester, England and currently resides in Maplewood, New Jersey.

    “Collecting Oriental Rugs in America, Then and Now”

     

    On Sunday April 21st at 4:30pm Macculloch Hall Historical Museum welcomes Oriental rug expert DeWitt Mallary to present “Collecting Oriental Rugs in American, Then and Now”.  Mr. Mallary will discuss the evolution of Oriental rug collecting in America over the past century or so, as well as discussing the Museum’s rug collection.  Macculloch Hall Historical Museum’s collection was assembled by its founder, W. Parsons Todd. Todd joined the Hajji Baba Club, America's first rug collectors group, in 1933, shortly after the group began. Mr. Mallary will consider what rugs were available and considered collectible then, and throughout Mr. Todd’s collecting period over the next several decades.  He will also consider how tastes and preferences, supply and demand have affected the collecting of oriental rugs and textiles since then.  Mr. Mallary will then discuss some of the rugs in the Museum's collection.

     

    Mr. Todd began collecting rugs in the 1920s, when few collectors were paying attention to them and information was scarce. Relying on his taste and instincts, Mr. Todd purchased 65 rugs, ranging geographically from Morocco to China and chronologically from the sixteenth through the early twentieth centuries. Although the rugs are not concentrated in any specific group, Mr. Todd built an outstanding collection; he purchased some pieces in poor condition because his priority was a rug’s beauty, rarity, and content.  This programwill be presented in the main gallery where vivid examples of the antique Oriental rug collection are currently being showcased, complemented by textbook examples of fine porcelain, silver, glass and furniture collected by Museum founder, W. Parsons Todd.  The “A Fine Collection: Treasures from the Vault” exhibit has a perimeter layout which leaves the center of the room open for a series of speakers and musical programming taking place in conjunction with the exhibit.  Musical programs take place on the first Sunday of the month at 4:30pm and speakers on the third Sunday of the month through June.

     

    DeWitt Mallary has been collecting and studying rugs and textiles over the past three decades. From his original focus on Baluch and Turkmen rugs, his interests have expanded to many other areas of antique rugs and textiles. He has been a Contributing Editor of HALI Magazine for over 20 years, delivered papers at the International and American Conferences on Oriental Carpets, and curated exhibitions and given presentations at a host of rug meetings and symposia in American and Europe. He is a long-standing member of the Hajji Baba Club, America’s first and oldest rug collector’s group. He co-authored a catalog of Todd’s collection at Macculloch Hall Historical Museum.

     

    Tickets for Sunday programs will go on sale from 1pm on the day of the program, no advance sales.  The presentation begins at 4:30pm.  House tours (regular admission applies) take place throughout the afternoon, the last tour leaves at 3pm. The upstairs galleries will remain open until 4:30pm, with the “A Fine Collection” exhibit closing at 3pm in preparation for the program. Tickets to hear speakers are Adults $8; Seniors & Students $6; Children 6 – 12 $4. Members and children under 5 are free. Speaker tickets include admission to take part in a house tour through the period rooms of the Museum for visitors who sign up for a tour during the afternoon.  Visitors can also enjoy the “Thomas Nast: President Maker and Campaign Breaker”, and the “American Heroes in Bronze” exhibits prior to the presentation. Galleries close at 4:30pm.

    WHY: On this, the 10th year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq (March 19th, 2003) New Jersey Peace Action is concerned about the U.S. continued commitment to war in Afghanistan, the on-going conflicts in Iraq and the threats of war against Iran, Syria, and Mali. It is important to understand how all these conflicts are inter-related and what the peace movement can do to challenge and change U.S. foreign policy. The Annual Dinner provides an opportunity to learn important and relevant information underlying U.S. involvement in multiple wars - the rationale, the real motivating factors and possible actions to change and redirect foreign policy. Additionally, numerous national and regional organizations have designated April as a National Month of Action Against Drones -- and this event is part of that effort.

    Wouldn't our beautiful community be even better if only the values some of us say we hold dear were practiced by those in authority instead of preached to our children?

    “Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) is an innovative way to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades to buildings. Interested property owners evaluate measures that achieve energy savings and receive 100% financing, repaid as a property tax assessment for up to 20 years. The assessment mechanism has been used nationwide for decades to access low-cost long-term capital to finance improvements to private property that meet a public purpose. By eliminating upfront costs, providing low-cost long-term financing and making it easy for building owners to transfer repayment obligations to a new owner upon sale, PACE overcomes challenges that have hindered adopted of energy efficiency and related projects in our nation’s buildings.”

    New Jersey Youth Symphony at Musikverein in Vienna, Austria in June 2012

    Location: 1607 Irving St, Rahway, NJ 07065
    When: April 20, 2013
    Time: 6:00 pm

    Wharton Music Center celebrates its 2013 Spring Gala on Saturday, April 20 at Union County Performing Arts Center located at 1601 Irving Street in Rahway, New Jersey. The Gala, its annual fundraiser, will feature New Jersey Youth Symphony in concert beginning at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to the concert. Tickets can be purchased at the Union County Performing Arts Center box office at www.ucpac.org or by calling 732.499.8226.

     

    The premiere orchestra of New Jersey Youth Symphony (NJYS), Youth Symphony, will perform movements from Holst’s The Planets and Shostakovich Symphony No. 10 as well as works by John Williams and Andrew Lloyd Webber. NJYS Youth Symphony is under the direction of Jeffrey Grogan who is also Artistic Director of NJYS.

     

    A special feature of the concert is the first public performance by second-grade students from Community Charter School of Paterson who are enrolled in Wharton Music Center’s Paterson Music Project. The Paterson Music Project students will join the NJYS musicians in a piece composed for the combined orchestras by Taylor A. Goodson entitled Fanfare and Rondo for Orchestra. The composition was commissioned especially by Maestro Grogan and NJYS for the concert.

     

    Paterson Music Project an El Sistema-inspired music program in Paterson, New Jersey came to life in January 2013 as the vision of Wharton Music Center Executive Director Derek Mithaug, Jeffrey Grogan, and Community Charter School of Paterson Principal Marnie McCoy began to be realized. Thirty second-grade students joined the after-school music program to learn to play violins, violas, and cellos and learn about music. Sponsored by Wharton Music Center, Paterson Music Project has blossomed to life under the direction of Jeffrey Grogan. The 2013 Wharton Music Center New Jersey Youth Symphony Spring Gala marks the students’ first performance.

     

    El Sistema, originated in Venezuela by Dr. José Antonio Abreu over 30 years ago, provides a model of how a music program can both create musicians and positively impact the lives of children. Students are immersed in learning music several days a week and taught by loving and caring music teachers. Students learn to respect themselves and each other as they work together as a group. El Sistema incorporates such core values as “every child has limitless possibilities and the ability to strive for excellence.” As an El Sistema-inspired program, Paterson Music Project at CCSP offers a structured environment for fostering social change and youth development through music to enable participating students to feel valuable within their community. Visit www.elsistemausa.org for more information regarding El Sistema.

     

    A small program devoted to string instruments for CCSP second grade students, Paterson Music Project is the first step in developing a full-fledged orchestra for the entire elementary school, which is growing to encompass kindergarten through eighth grade. Thanks to funding from The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, Dombal-Vogel Foundation, The Provident Bank Foundation, The Henry M. and Agnes R. Truzack Foundation, and the Wallerstein Foundation, the strings program was launched.

     

    The mission of Paterson Music Project is to use music as a vehicle for social change by empowering and inspiring children through the community experience of ensemble learning and playing. Students attend two-hour classes three times a week after school. Instruction includes instrumental instruction separately for violin, viola, and cello, general music activities, solfege class, and history and cultural activities. Every Thursday is “Performance Thursday” where parents are invited to arrive 10 minutes early before dismissal to listen to the class perform what they are working on. Students in the Paterson Music Project are encouraged by dedicated, talented, and nurturing faculty members. Coordinating the Paterson Music Project is violinist and faculty member Elizabeth Moulthrop. Assisting her are faculty members cellist Terrence Thornhill, and violist Shanna Lin. For more information on the Paterson Music Project, visit www.njys.org/paterson-music-project-2/ .

     

    NJYS Youth Symphony includes 95 students in grades 9 through 12. Students audition each year to gain a seat in the orchestra. Many members of YS continue on to study music in leading conservatories and attend some of the most prestigious universities in the world. This past year under the direction of Conductor Jeffrey Grogan, Youth Symphony has performed in the Musikverein in Vienna, Austria and at Carnegie Hall in New York as well as Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, New Jersey.

     

    YS recently collaborated with internationally recognized musical celebrities such as violinist Mark O'Connor, the Ahn Trio, and Stefan Höskuldssohn, principal flute of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. They recently rehearsed Holst's The Planets with Maestro Jacques LaCombe, Music Director of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. This spring, YS will be featured on a DVD+CD with the Ahn Trio performing Mark O'Connor's March of the Gypsy Fiddler. YS students also serve as mentors, teachers, and performers with students in the Paterson Music Project.
