23Arts in the Snow I

Strauss & #HerStory

Friday, January 11th 7:00PM – 8:15 PM

Soprano Celine Mogielnicki weaves the vocal music of Richard Strauss into an exploration of womens’ emotional experience; a reckoning and reclaiming of the female narrative as captured by one of the most beloved- and feminist -composers in classical music. Mogielnicki joins forces with pianist Renana Gutman to trace the arc and phases of womanhood through the lens of Pauline de Ahna, Richard’s brilliant, talented, and notoriously independent wife. The program draws from Strauss’ piano and orchestral songs, his tone poem Ein Heldenleben, and the Four Last Songs.


Local Photography of the Mountain Top

Slide Show with Elaine Warfield

 Thursday, January 31st at 6:00pm

Local artist and author Elaine Warfield will present a Slide Show showcasing a collection of pictures old and new (1900’s to 2018), of various locations on the mountain top.

An amateur photographer, Elaine has published four photo books on the mountain top/Northern Catskills region, everything from waterfalls, creeks, mountain ranges, moonrise at South Lake, full moon at Palenville Overlook, sunset at Sunset Rock to the Milky Way above Kaaterskill Falls. Questions and participation welcome.
