Considering the Arts # 8

A Conversation with Claire Collins about the Theremin
and Other Exotic Musical Instruments


When: Sunday, November 6, 2016, 2 pm
Where: Symphony Knoll, 15 Mt Airy Rd, Croton-on-Hudson, NY
Cost: Free & Public is Invited

Claire will talk about the theremin and some other exotic instruments, how they are unusual, and what’s intriguing about them.  Claire will play and you can too.

The theremin, the precursor of electronic music, is capable of the eerie and the endearing, simple but difficult. A briefly mass-produced version was owned and played by Charlie Chaplin, Edward Everett Horton, Harpo Marx, Leopold Stokowski, and more.(

Claire teaches voice and piano at the Bennett Conservatory in Croton, and is Assistant Conductor of the Croton Chorale and a member of the CCoA Board.

Speaking of the Croton Chorale, it will be performing on November 5th at 8:00 pm at Asbury Methodist Church, 17 Old Post Road South, Croton, with a most apropos program including Haydn’s “Mass in Time of Anguish.”

Watershed Flood Mitigation Assessment

October 23, 2016

The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) in cooperation with DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program is soliciting proposals for a study that will assess flooding vulnerabilities in a Hudson River watershed or subwatershed, and propose flood mitigation solutions that consider both engineering (e.g. roads, bridges, culverts) and natural system solutions (e.g. conservation or restoration of wetlands, forests). The watershed does not need to include a public drinking water source, although its inclusion is preferred. For more information about this RFP, please visit the Grants and Funding Opportunities page on the DEC website. $99,950 is available for this project. The deadline for applications is December 30, 2016, at 12 noon.
