Choral Society of the Hamptons Presents Brahms in Love

Posted on 18 March 2015

When Jennifer Scott Miceli steps in as the guest conductor for the upcoming performance of the Choral Society of the Hamptons, it is with a wealth of musical knowledge that she takes the baton. The Chair of the Music Department at LIU Post, she not only understands musical history, but also knows musicians, voices, instruments, and choirs.
Ms. Miceli has worked with the Choral Society of the Hamptons before, so she had a familiarity with the group and what their strengths were. And after falling in love with Brahms’ waltzes last spring, she felt they’d be a good fit for this group.
“The waltzes are the feature piece,” said Ms. Miceli, “and from there I thought, ‘Why not just saturate ourselves in Brahms?’”

The Buzz About Bees

Posted on 16 March 2015

This winter has been hard on everyone. But for Mary Woltz, the challenges have gone far beyond simply shoveling and making sure there’s enough firewood on hand. That’s because Ms. Woltz is a beekeeper — a job that doesn’t end just because the pollination season has.

Jules Feiffer Revisits His Long Lost Youth in “Kill My Mother”

Posted on 16 March 2015

You’d think that with an Academy Award, a Pulitzer Prize, two Obies and a Guild Hall Lifetime Achievement Award under his belt (the latter occurring just last week), cartoonist/playwright/screenwriter/filmmaker Jules Feiffer wouldn’t be afraid to try anything. But you’d be wrong. Up until last summer, Mr. Feiffer, who just turned 86, had never tackled the noir style comic, that genre of crime literature where tough talking detectives hook up with sassy dames who aren’t quite on the level and together, they solve murders in bleak, black and white setting. It’s a genre Mr. Feiffer has loved since he was a child.
