Cottage Communities by Author Sara Hines Thursday, April 11, 2019 • 07:00 PM - 12:00 AM • Mount Tabor,NJ
Cottage Communities - Author Sara Hines Presents Images and Discussion of Camp Meetings In honor of Mount Tabor’s 150th Anniversary year, the Historical Society has invited author Sara Hines for a special presentation based on her book “Cottage Communities – The American Camp Meeting Movement: a Study in Lean Urbanism”. Sara N. Hines is an architect, urban designer, and photographer. She has practiced and taught architecture for many years and is now based in Massachusetts, where she continues to practice and research Camp Meetings and work for their preservation. Her book has many accolades, such as this from one review: “Cottage Communities is a terrific book with lovely photography of many colorfully decorated cottages from a variety of different campgrounds around the U.S. This book is relatively detailed providing a thorough and pleasant history of Christian communities still active and vibrant today. Most of these communities were constructed post civil war and many still survive to represent the colorful Victorian era. The history, purpose, uniqueness, construction materials and techniques are accurately described and illustrated. Sara N. Hines respects and understands the religious and artistic nature of these cottages and their wonderful contributions toward our new nation’s civil and community development.” Cottage Communities is a study of the American Camp Meeting Movement, from 1786-present, showing how the planning, land use, governance, architecture and detailing created these unique places where a strong experience of community is clear even today. There are still approximately 1000 Camp Meeting Grounds left from a high point of over 3000 locations. Camp Meetings are about vernacular or historic design, as well as a resource for those interested in urban design, ingenuity in structure and use of materials, and building detailing. As part of the discussion on Lean Urbanism, these places are source information on small or tiny houses, cottage design, pocket neighborhoods, affordable housing and self-building for lean, efficient living. Design and site planning to generate community through an intuitive understanding of spaces, distances and how it all works is also discussed. The observations on how behavior is affected by built space reflects knowledge achieved over time.

Beethoven & The Baroque Sunday, April 14, 2019 • 03:00 PM - 12:00 AM • Morristown,New Jersey
Morristown, NJ-- The Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey presents a concert entitled "Beethoven & The Baroque” at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at Dolan Hall, The Annunciation Center, at The College of St. Elizabeth, 2 Convent Road in Morristown, NJ. The concert features a suite from Handel’s Water Music, Mozart’s Flute Concerto in D and Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. "I look forward to conducting the music of Handel, Mozart, and Beethoven." Maestro Butts explained, "They are three of my favorite composers. While Handel was a composer of what is called the Baroque Era (1600-1750) and Mozart and Beethoven were part of the Classical Era (1750-1827), Handel's music was a major influence on both later composers. Mozart re-orchestrated several of Handel's works - including Messiah for concerts produced by Baron von Sweiten in Vienna. Beethoven held that Handel was one of the greatest of all composers." “Handel's Water Music consists of three suites of mostly dance movements. For our concert, we will perform a bouree, hornpipe, sarabande, and rigadon.” "Mozart's flute concertos are wonderful," Maestro Butts continued. "They are so vibrant and so filled with life." Mozart's Concerto in D Major will feature flutist Mei Stone, winner of the 2018 Pearl & Julius Young Music Competition. Tickets to the Beethoven & The Baroque concert are $40, adults; $30, senior; and $5 students, under 22 with ID. Tickets can be obtained by visiting the Orchestra’s web site www.baroqueorchestra.org or by calling the office, 973-366-8922; or at the door on the day of the performance. CONTACT: Lisa Young, Vice President, The Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey, [email protected] or 973-669-1641. _____________________________________________________________________________________ The Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey was founded in 1996 with music of the 17th and 18th century at its core. The group performs a variety of genres from concertos to symphonies to operas. Under the auspices of its Pearl and Julius Young Music Competition, the organization has nurtured the talent of many promising young musicians. Under the auspices of its Artistic Director Maestro Butts, the orchestra’s repertoire has expanded to include 20th century and modern pieces by the likes of Joaquin Rodrigo and others.

Dr. K's Motown Review Saturday, June 29, 2019 • 08:00 PM - 12:00 AM • Hackettstown,NJ
2019 Fundraiser for the Hackettstown Rotary! Without a doubt, The Motown Sound has left an indelible stamp on the heart, soul and mind of several generations of fans worldwide. Over the years many of the artist and writers responsible for bringing to the world this incredible body of work has passed on. The music however, lives on through movies, radio, television commercials, collectible CD's, dance halls, weddings and karaoke clubs. It's not just the songs but the memories associated with them that have forever imprinted the Motown Sound in the hearts and souls of music fans. Without even consciously realizing it, we all know every lyric, melody and instrumental phrases associated with the songs. So much so that if a live band plays the songs and leaves out any of these memorable licks, we know it and subconsciously add it in ourselves. That brings us to Paul Korman and his visionary quest to create the ultimate Motown tribute band. *Not included in Flex Pass!*

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns,tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages. Book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin "A hail of fun and frolic- Nunsense, like the holy mother church, is a bona fide institution." - The New York Times
