Westchester Fall Arts Preview 2012: Fall Events

Arts events to satisfy every cultural craving.


Gallery Street Art
September 8 to October 13
Blue Door Gallery
From Banksy to Shepard Fairey, street artists have moved out of the fringes and into the spotlight. The Blue Door Gallery takes to the streets when it displays works by stencil and graffiti artists, street photographers and video artists, and street performers. Even the gallery building gets into the act, moonlighting as a canvas for spray-paint and stencils.

Ice Age to the Digital Age: The 3D Animation of Blue Sky Studios
September 16 to January 20
Katonah Museum of Art
Even though we’re nursing a tiny grudge now that Blue Sky Studios—the animation house behind Ice Age and Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who!—ditched Westchester for Greenwich, Connecticut, we have to admit that their designs are still out-of-this world. The Katonah Museum of Art celebrates the studio with an exhibition featuring hand-drawn character designs, storyboards, sculptural maquettes, videos, and other items that detail every part of the digital-animation process. On October 14, families can attend a day of hands-on activities, workshops, and talks with Blue Sky artists (but keep away from the Scrat—we hear that guy’s trouble).

Witness: The Art of Jerry Pinkney
September 29 to January 13
Hudson River Museum
Jerry Pinkney’s work might just be in your house right now—but on your bookshelf, not your walls. The Northern Westchester resident has illustrated more than 100 picture books; he’s received five Caldecott Medals, the most recent for 2010’s The Lion and the Mouse. Now, his work will go from your kids’ gunky hands to the Hudson River Museum’s walls, where they’ll have more than 140 of Pinkney’s watercolors and illustrated commissions on display.

Celebrities: We Remember Them Well
September 21 to November 10    ArtsWestchester’s Arts Exchange
Since the time of the Mona Lisa (and earlier), people have been obsessed with celebrities—especially if they can take a good photo. ArtsWestchester has rounded up some of these star-inspired images—curated by local collector and art dealer Milton Ellenbogen—for an exhibition of rare celebrity portraits (think Marilyn Monroe and Spike Lee) by more than 25 photographers. The entire second-floor gallery is devoted to Allan Tannenbaum’s portraits of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. (Like what you see? All of the photos are also for sale.)

Also Consider: Oh la la—the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut, hosts an exhibition of sculptures by a French-born artist who hopped the pond for his (married—quelle scandal!) muse with the exhibition Face and Figure: The Sculpture of Gaston Lachaise (September 22 to January 6) // Keep an eye on the streets of Peekskill, since the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art’s Peekskill Project brings art out of the museum and onto the city’s streets (September 29 to July 28) // Clay comes from the Earth, so landscapes—even ones studded with man-made objects—make sense, as Susan Beiner: Organic Dissolution, the exhibition at the Clay Art Center, can attest (October 14 to November 24) // If you’re looking for art to lift your spirits, Celebrating Life!, an exhibition of paintings by Mireille Duchesne at the Flat Iron Gallery in Peekskill, does just that (November 1 to November 25) // On November 1, sip Champagne, do some holiday shopping, and preview Inner Glow, the group painting, photography, and drawing show at Kenise Barnes Fine Art in Larchmont (November 3 to December 22).

A Trip Through Strawberry Fields
September 20
The Picture House
Looking for more behind-the-scenes Beatles info? Let Scott Freiman—composer, producer, and Fab Four fanatic—take you down. Appearing at The Picture House, Freiman will use audio and video to dissect the one-two punch of “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Penny Lane,” moving from early demos to the finished versions you’ve listened to 1,000 times on vinyl. He’ll even tackle “A Day in the Life” before calling it an evening.


Dance on Film Series
Opens September 20
Jacob Burns Film Center
Okay, maybe you can’t foxtrot, twist, dougie, or do the running man. It doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy watching those who can. The Jacob Burns Film Center’s Dance on Film series captures what it means to be a dancer in many different styles. Films include Singin’ in the Rain, marking what would have been Gene Kelly’s 100th birthday; First Position, a documentary following young ballet dancers gearing up for the Youth America Grand Prix; Never Stand Still, about the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival (Peter Pucci interviews the filmmakers on September 27); and Ballroom Dancer, about a former world champion in Latin American dancing trying to recapture his crown.

Manhattan Short Film Festival
October 3
Avon Theatre Film Center
It’s your turn to judge a film festival. Head to the Avon to see—and vote on—short-subject films chosen as finalists in the Manhattan Short Film Festival. People in more than 250 cities across the country will be doing the same; the festival has organized it as a way of uniting audiences around the world. Prizes are awarded based solely on audience votes—and past winners and finalists have gone on to rack up some impressive credits. See if you can spot the up-and-coming talent.

The Sound of Music Sing-Along
October 13
Emelin Theatre
If you know that “La” is the note that follows “So,” you’re already warmed up. The rest of you, brush up on your Sound of Music, practice your do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-dos, and get ready to belt out the songs along with the on-screen actors when the Emelin Theatre hosts a raucous screening of the musical. Audience members are encouraged to bring props, wear costumes, and make the hills come alive with their own singing.

Also consider: Grab your personal Duckie, Blane, or Andie and head for a Date Night at The Picture House in Pelham, where the audience will choose which ’80s comedy will be shown from a list that includes The Big Chill, A Fish Called Wanda, and Tootsie (September 7) // Since the AMC channel is now all about Breaking Bad and The Killing, get your fix of real classic movies at the Greenwich Classic Film Series, which will be showing The Fountainhead (October 1 and October 2), The Great McGinty (October 15 and October 16), San Francisco (November 5 and November 6), The Great White Hope (November 19 and November 20), and Network (December 3 and December 4) at Bow Tie Cinemas in Greenwich, Connecticut // Harlan Jacobson’s Talk Cinema returns to The Performing Arts Center for another season for you-saw-it-first looks at indie and foreign movies (October 2, October 30, November 13).



Classical & Opera

Bernstein in Black and White
September 8
Copland House at Merestead
Whether you’re a Jet or a Shark, everyone can agree that Leonard Bernstein is one of the greatest composers of all time. Two nimble-fingered pianists—Copland House’s Michael Boriskin and award-winning composer John Musto—will perform a deuling-piano version of Bernstein’s favorites, including selections from West Side Story, Candide, and Wonderful Town.

Taconic Opera’s Mefistofele
October 19 to October 28
Yorktown Stage and
The Performing Arts Center
When you think about the “Devil’s music,” opera isn’t the first genre to come to mind. But the Devil is front and center in Arrigo Boito’s Mefistofele, along with the underhanded dealings he has with an outmatched Faust. You won’t need to make any deals for your soul in order to see the Taconic Opera’s production of Mefistofele; they make it easy by bringing it to two locations. From October 19 to 21, it’ll be at the Yorktown Stage, and on October 27 and 28, you can see it at The Performing Arts Center.

Miloš Karadagliç
October 21
The Performing Arts Center
The almost-30-year-old Miloš Karadagliç has the smoldering good looks of a rock or pop star, someone who could pick up a guitar and make the ladies’ pulses race. Instead, it’s classical fans who are swooning. The Performing Arts Center hosts him for an evening of virtuosic classical guitar. Perhaps he’ll play something from his recently released Latino, a recording of him playing works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Astor Piazzolla, Roland Dyens, and others.


Westchester Chamber Symphony
November 10
Christopher J. Murphy Auditorium
Iona College
Violinist Yevgeny Kutik has played at Alice Tully Hall, with the Boston Pops, abroad in orchestras in Germany and Prague, and, now, in New Rochelle. He’ll join the Westchester Chamber Symphony in playing Max Bruch’s “Violin Concerto No. 1, Op. 26 in G minor.”

Westchester Philharmonic
November 10 and November 11
The Performing Arts Center
Pianist Jeremy Denk has been called “fleet-fingered” by the New York Times, and “a tour de force” by the Boston Globe, which referred to him as a “fast-rising American pianist.” But, is he any match for Beethoven? Denk will sit in with the Westchester Philharmonic for an all-Beethoven program. Tito Muñoz, who was recently named the music director at the Opera National de Lorraine in France, conducts.

Also Consider: Sarah Lawrence College offers the rare opportunity to see the Salomé Chamber Orchestra perform works by Mozart and Tchaikovsky in a small setting (September 30) // Mezzo-Soprano Ariel Levis, winner of the 2012 “Joy in Singing Competition,” shows off her gleeful vocal talent for the Chaminade Club of Yonkers at the Grinton I. Will Library (October 2) // Flutist Mimi Stillman leads the Bedford Chamber Concerts through works by Bach at St. Matthews Episcopal Church (October 10) // The Modigliani Quartet, winner of the 2006 “Young Concert Artist Audition,” performs works by Haydn, Schumann, and Ravel for Friends of Music at Sleepy Hollow High School (November 3) // REBEL Ensemble for Baroque Music takes up its period instruments and performs a mix of poetry and works by Couperin, Telemann, Biber, and others at the Bedford Presbyterian Church (November 11).



Jazz, Folk, Rock, and Pop

WJO Performs West Side Stories
September 29
The Masters School
The Westchester Jazz Orchestra turns 10 years old this year, and it celebrates its double-digit anniversary by looking back at Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story. (Consider it the jazzier version of Copland House at Merestead’s Bernstein program.) In addition to versions of the musical written for Buddy Rich and Stan Kenton, the WJO will premiere its newly commissioned “West Side Story Suite.” Hear what went into the commission at a pre-concert “Open Mike,” where artistic director Mike Holober answers questions from the audience.

Fountains of Wayne
November 9
Tarrytown Music Hall
You may only know Fountains of Wayne from its biggest radio hit, the droll “Stacy’s Mom.” But that’s just the tip of their power-pop iceberg. The band has been writing equally earwormy—we mean catchy—songs since 1996, and their most recent album, 2011’s Sky Full of Holes, was described as “imparting a wry, cynical worldview that lingers well after the snap, crackle and fizz subsides” by the Los Angeles Times.


Aretha Franklin
November 13
Westchester County Center
It’s hard to believe it’s been four years since we saw the Queen of Soul—and her hat, which has more than 93,000 “likes” on Facebook—perform at President Obama’s inauguration. If you ask us, that’s entirely too long, and we shouldn’t have to wait for another inauguration before she takes the stage again. Lucky for us, Franklin will put on a show at the Westchester County Center. Consider it a mini-exclusive: So far, this is the only concert that she has scheduled for this fall.

Dar Williams/Loudon Wainwright III
October 27
Tarrytown Music Hall
Dar Williams and Loudon Wainwright III make for a natural double bill. Not only do the two singer/songwriters share a similar folky sensibility, they have the county in common, too—both artists have lived in Westchester. (They also both put out new albums in 2012.) Welcome them home when they play together at the Tarrytown Music Hall.

Also Consider: Y’all better be there when Michael McDonald plays “Yah Mo B There” at the Ridgefield Playhouse (September 11) // You’ll have your chance to see some kind of wonderful American band when Grand Funk Railroad plays the Ridgefield Playhouse (September 22) // Until Jimmy Page and Robert Plant settle their differences, Hammer of the Gods is the next-best-thing to a real Led Zeppelin concert, and you can see them at the Irvington Town Hall Theater (October 12) // Having the bluegrass is way more fun than having the blues, as Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out at the Emelin Theatre assures (October 12) // Average White Band joins up with Tower of Power for a better-than-average concert at the Paramount Center for the Arts (October 14) // Get an autumnal dose of soul when Smokey Robinson plays the Tarrytown Music Hall (November 15) // Free your mind and check out 1990s R&B sensation En Vogue at the Paramount Center for the Arts (November 17) // Tenor saxophonist Gato Barbieri hits the big 80 this year, and he wants to celebrate with you  at the Tarrytown Music Hall (November 17).



Ballet Folklorico De Mexico
September 27
Stamford Center for the Arts
Don’t let the word “ballet” fool you—we’re not talking pale pink leotards and toe shoes. Instead, choreographer Amalia Hernández pays homage to the traditional dances of all regions of Mexico, incorporating splashy, colorful costumes into lively, fast-paced numbers.

Royal Drummers & Dancers of Burundi
October 19
Stamford Center for the Arts
Here, percussion takes center stage—and the East African troupe has certainly got the beat. Once those drummers get going, the performers dance, jump, and otherwise groove to the rhythm—and, chances are, you will, too, from your seats.

Mark Morris Dance Group
November 17
The Performing Arts Center
Contemporary choreographer Mark Morris somehow manages to be equal parts Brooklyn and Berkshires, and his work is similarly varied, mixing Scottish and Irish folk songs, waltzes, polkas—even throwing in a Hula-Hoop or two. When it visits The Performing Arts Center, the Mark Morris Dance Group will perform a quartet of
repertory works: The Muir, Canonic ¾ Studies, Ten Suggestions, and Festival Dance.



Avenue Q
September 21 to September 30
Westchester Sandbox Theatre
For those of you with recent college grads at home—or those of you who remember the sting of being tossed out into the real world with the ink still wet on your diploma—Avenue Q feels your pain. The musical, an irreverent send up of Sesame Street-style shows performed by both people and puppets, commiserates about the lack of jobs for those with BAs in English (not that we’d know anything about that) and wanting to return to the hallowed halls of education.  For its production, the Westchester Sandbox Theater is creating a whole new cast of puppets, so there’s something new even if you saw the show on Broadway.

Fiddler on the Roof
October 11 to November 25
Westchester Broadway Theatre
Why, after multiple revivals since this musical premiered on Broadway in 1964, would you want to see another production of Fiddler on the Roof? Tradition! The Westchester Broadway Theatre brings back one of its most popular productions, and you have plenty of chances to head out and see it. Not only will it play throughout the fall, from October 11 to November 25, after a short break it’ll return in the winter and run again from January 2 to February 10.

Awake and Sing!
October 20 to November 4
Axial Theatre
We know the Axial Theatre as a company that produces cutting-edge new works of theater, but now they’re doing something a little different. Instead of building a new play from the ground-up, they’re putting their Axial twist on a classic play, Clifford Odets’s 1935 drama about an impoverished family in the Depression-era Bronx. Preview performances will take place on October 18 and 19.

Shatner’s World: We Just Live in It
November 8
Stamford Center for the Arts
William Shatner is the only one brave enough to boldly go where no man has gone before—into the depths of his own acting career. In his one-man show, which premiered at the Music Box Theatre this past winter, he takes the audiences through the path of his career from the Shakespearean stage to the captain’s chair of the Enterprise.

Also Consider: Tickets to David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross at the Quick Center for the Arts are for closers—or anyone who wants to see a play about cutthroat businessmen, really (October 3 to October 6) // Head from Westchester County to Osage County when the White Plains Performing Arts Center takes on the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama August: Osage County (October 5 to October 14) // The Fort Hill Players show off their talent for delivering zingers, one-liners, and other witty dialogue with Paul Rudnick’s comic Regrets Only at the Rochambeau School Theater (October 19 to October 27) // We wouldn’t mind being swindled if all con men had songs as catchy as Harold Hill’s in The Music Man, which you can catch at the Yorktown Stage (November 17 to November 25) //  For an early dose of Christmas cheer, see members of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival perform the “Fezziwig” section of Dickens’s A Christmas Carol at Boscobel, the Katonah Museum of Art, West Point, and the Hudson River Museum (November 30 to December 16).



Art and Science Sundays
September 2 to October 28
Science Barge
Sitting docked on the Hudson River, just a gangplank-walk from Yonkers, is the Science Barge, a floating greenhouse that grows its own produce using solar panels, wind turbines, and biofuels (with zero net carbon emissions, pesticides, or runoff). Learning about the barge should be enough to entertain your kids for the day, but there’s extra incentive to visit on Sundays, when it hosts its Art and Science days. Families can attend workshops on making mosaics, kaleidoscopes, static electricity, and fractals, all atop the rushing waters of the Hudson.

Legend Celebration
October 6 to October 28
Washington Irving’s Sunnyside
The Horseman’s Hollow? Too scary for kids. The Great Jack O’ Lantern Blaze? Amazing, but not Halloweeny enough. The Legend Celebration at Washington Irving’s Sunnyside? Just right. The spooky-but-not-too-scary
activities for kids—which take place during the daytime, so you can always use them as a warm-up to the Blaze—include magicians, puppet shows, and live music. Kids are encouraged to come in costume, so you can bring your gaggle of Spidermen.
Ukulele JAM with Zev Haber
October 5 to November 23
Groove Performing Arts
No, it’s not the world’s most rock ’n’ roll instrument, but wouldn’t you rather have your kids toting ukes around the house than trying to master the drums? Musician Zev Haber heads to Groove Performing Arts to teach older pre-schoolers and kindergarteners the basics of the four-stringed instrument. It might not turn them into mini-Van Halens (which is probably a good thing), but they can grow up to be like free-spirited, uke-playing idols, such as Eddie Vedder or Zooey Deschanel.


Martha Speaks
November 24
Emelin Theatre
We’re a little bit afraid of what dogs would say if they learned to talk, but, in Martha Speaks, Martha—who learns to talk after eating alphabet soup—has such a way with words that we’ll allow it. The Emelin Theatre presents a new musical based on the series of books by Susan Meddaugh. We just hope the talking dog doesn’t let the cat out of the bag.

Also Consider: Westchester is swarming with the creative minds behind children’s books, and they’ll converge on Washington Irving’s Sunnyside for Children’s Book Day, where kids can meet their favorite authors, illustrators, and even characters (September 15) // Richard Scarry’s Busytown comes to life in Lowly Worm & Huckle Cat: Busytown Busy at the Emelin Theatre (October 22) // We know it takes a lot to get kids into classical music, but the Family Classical Concert at the Tarrytown Music Hall just might do the trick (November 10) // The star of Avenue Q takes kids under the sea for John Tartaglia’s ImaginOcean, a black-light puppet show at the Quick Center for the Performing Arts (November 18).


Special Events

Yonkers Riverfest
September 8
Yonkers Riverfront
The city of Yonkers wants to take you to the river, and it’s set up a bunch of enticements to bring you there. If the Yonkers Riverfest’s food and music aren’t a big enough draw, there’s also a classic car show, a children’s petting zoo, mini-golf, art for sale, and street performers. (Last year’s festival attracted more than 25,000 visitors.) Best of all: Admission is free. For more information, visit yonkersdowntown.com.  

Native American Folk Arts
September 30
Pelham Art Center
The Pelham Art Center is teaming up with the Redhawk Arts Council for a day of free art activities. Working Native American artists teach participants about their heritage, history, and art. The series of free workshops continues into the fall with events dedicated to Mexican folk art (October 21) and Irish folk art (November date TBA), so you can become a worldly folk-art connoisseur.

Crafts at Purchase
November 2 to November 4
The Performing Arts Center
The folks behind the hotly anticipated Crafts at Lyndhurst (which takes place September 16 to September 18 this year) are bringing their talent to a new venue. The three-day event brings more than 100 juried artists to The Performing Arts Center to showcase their apparel, jewelry, home accessories, and fine art and crafts. All proceeds from ticket sales benefit The Performing Arts Center, so your splurges support the arts in more ways than one.

Westchester Teen Idol
November 24
Irvington Town Hall Theater
If you’re the type to DVR American Idol, The X Factor, The Sing-Off, and The Voice, you might be addicted to reality singing competition. If that’s the case, head over to the Westchester Teen Idol competition, a benefit event for the Pleasantville Music Theater. Young, local singers who made it past the grueling audition round (which takes place September 29 and October 6 at the Yorktown Stage) will perform again, this time for a panel of three celebrity judges. You just have to promise to be nicer than Simon Cowell.

Cirque Chinois
November 2
Quick Center for the Arts
We all know about Barnum and Bailey—Bailey being a one-time Westchester resident and all—but you know nothing about the circus until you see the National Circus of the People’s Republic of China. The group is one of the longest running and most distinguished circus troupes in China.

Also Consider: Head to the great outdoors to do your shopping when Scarsdale’s Outdoor Art Show comes to Chase Park (September 8 and September 9) // Visit secret gardens not normally open to the public with the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days (September 9, October 20, November 3) // The Holy Trinity Greek Church’s Annual Festival celebrates Hellenism and Greek culture—but, please, leave your togas at home (September 13 to September 16) // Clang, clang, clang goes the hop-on, hop-off trolley that takes you to various cultural venues in New Rochelle for the city’s annual ArtsFest (September 20 to 23) // Go shopping en plein air when more than 185 juried artists take their wares to Community Park for the Armonk Outdoor Art Show (September 29 and September 30) // The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor has become so synonymous with autumn in Westchester, we can’t  imagine a year without it (September 29 to November 11) // The Westchester Fine Craft Show continues into its second decade in the county, drawing more than 100 artists from all across the United States (October 12 to October 14) // The Emelin Theatre holds its 40th Birthday Party Celebration—and it doesn’t look a day over 30 (November 18).


Readings, Lectures, and Comedy

Margaret Cho
September 28
Ridgefield Playhouse
Sure, mothers of all comedians probably shake their heads and wonder how much free material they’ve given to their kids. But Margaret Cho’s mother gets it more than most—Cho has made a career out of skewering her poor mom’s worldview, and it’s not letting up anytime soon. Cho’s named her newest comedy tour the “Mother” tour, and promises to examine the many different ways we look at motherhood in its various forms. (Parents of accountants, breathe a sigh of relief and pat yourselves on the back right now.)

Alison Bechdel
October 17
The Performing Arts Center
This year, the cartoonist released Are You My Mother?, a poignant memoir and darkly funny graphic novel about Bechdel’s relationship with her own mom. (The book partially deals with getting her mother to accept Bechdel’s divulging of family secrets in her previous book, the bestselling Fun Home.) She discusses her life in words and pictures at Purchase College, where she will deliver the Royal and Shirley Durst Distinguished Lecture. The talk is free and open to the public.

Spoken Interludes
November 13
No matter where you fall on the fiction/nonfiction divide, Spoken Interludes has you covered. For its November installment, speakers include David Denby, film critic for the New Yorker, reading from his book Do the Movies Have a Future?, along with Joshua Henken, reading from his novel, The World Without You. As always, cocktails and a buffet dinner precede the reading, and writers stick around afterward for a Q&A and book signing.

John Oliver
November 20
Tarrytown Music Hall
Fans of The Daily Show are already familiar with John Oliver’s wry British humor, which he also puts to use in his podcast, The Bugle, self-described as “premium-calibre satirical hogwash.” At his Daily Show gig, he’s talked to everyone from ambassadors to Civil War re-enactors, so there’s plenty of fodder for his stand-up act.

Also Consider: Joy Behar espouses even more of her views at the Ridgefield Playhouse (September 14) // “Gone Madigan” comedian Kathleen Madigan does her stand-up at the Stamford Center for the Arts (September 15) // Even though he’s been doing comedy for about half a century, Jackie Mason is as sharp as ever, and he’ll prove it at Tarrytown Music Hall (October 13) // The Last Comic Standing favorite Ralphie May shows why he named his stand-up special “Too Big to Ignore” at the Tarrytown Music Hall (November 3) // The Tarrytown Music Hall also hosts Ralphie May’s mentor, Last Comic Standing executive producer Jay Mohr, for his own night of comedy (November 4) // War and peace have inspired more writers than Tolstoy, as the Hudson Valley Writers’ Center’s annual Poets and Writers on War and Peace can attest (November 9).
