CONCERT IN PUTNEY
On Friday, May 14, in Bellows Falls and Saturday, May 15, in Putney, the Windham Orchestra, with guest conductor Lisa Jablow, will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a concert that takes inspiration from the legacy of Blanche Moyse.
The Legacy & Inspiration concert features three pieces that all have special meaning to violinist, BMC Founder and southern Vermont musical pioneer Blanche Moyse. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.3, honors Mme. Moyse’s love and dedication to the music of J.S. Bach; Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D, one of the great works of the classical repertoire, was played by 16-year old Blanche Moyse in her debut with L’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande; and Mendelssohn’s Fingal’s Cave, was played by the Windham Orchestra in 1978 conducted by Mme. Moyse.

River Project: Connecticut River
Dear travelers, friends and neighbors of the Connecticut River, including those of you from Putney: I am creating an art installation at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center and I am asking for your help.
To me, rivers are the earth's veins, each having its own character, imprinted by its natural surroundings and those who occupy it. The art installation will consist of a collection of words and sediment earth and rock. I am hoping for impressions that give one a sense of the river's life.

Sandglass Theater’s month long storytellers series, "Passages," finishes up this Sunday afternoon at 4 o’clock. Larry Bramble’s reading of Truman Capote’s classic story “A Christmas Memory” will be a delightful passage into the holiday season.
"A Christmas Memory" is Capote's memoir of his childhood in rural Alabama, living with his distant relatives. Initially appearing in Mademoiselle magazine in December, 1956, this memorable story was reprinted in The Selected Writings of Truman Capote in 1963, but it was the 1966 edition that established the story's enduring popularity. The story of a seven-year-old boy and his aging cousin's holiday traditions was made into an Emmy Award-winning television movie starring Geraldine Page in 1968.

With an added sense of purpose, Putney Craft Tour returns
Reformer Staff http://www.reformer.com/ovation/ci_138698
By JON POTTER
PUTNEY -- In its 31 years, the Putney Craft Tour has always been a mix of serious fun and serious business, a pleasant Thanksgiving weekend blend of "home for the holidays" and "be our guest."
This year, a sad turn of events has added a serious sense of purpose and a heartfelt mission of outreach to this annual three-day event in which artists and artisans in the village, hills and heartland of Putney open their studios.
As many as 2,000 people are expected to come to Putney for the annual event, which runs Friday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. And they, like their neighbors will have a special chance this year to do something good for the community.
iPutney, with a little help from all its friends, has grown into a vital community news web site. Put your own news or events online by clicking on "Submit Story."
