Sima Kustanovich & Marc Thayer - Classical Piano & Violin Concert
Sima Kustanovich is one of the Northeast’s most sought after pianists. She concertizes in some of the most acclaimed international venues, and is equally at home as a soloist, or chamber musician. She received a Masters in Music from the St. Petersburg Conservatory; then joined its faculty and accepted a coveted appointment to the famed Leningrad Opera and Ballet Theater. An esteemed teacher, she is on the faculties at Clark University. Marc Thayer joined Symphony New Hampshire in Nashua as Executive Director in July, 2016. Previously Marc was the Deputy Director of the Association of American Voices (AV), a Cultural Diplomacy NGO with whom he has performed and taught in Iraq, Syria, Jordan and other locales. With AV Marc continues to teach at the annual YES Academy in Kurdistan, northern Iraq, and in Beirut, Lebanon. Marc has performed with the San Diego Symphony, Syracuse Symphony, Florida Philharmonic, and with the International Festival of Art in Aix-en-Provence, France to name a few. He received a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Violin Performance from the Eastman School of Music.
Southgate hosts the 5-week series entitled, “Five Pivotal Moments in US History”. As pressing as our national debates might seem to be in the present, we can’t fully engage with them, or with any other American conversations, until and unless we have a fuller and richer sense of our past. In this course, we’ll focus on five moments about which we know far too little about including: Women’s Suffrage; the 1876 Centennial; the Chinese Exclusion Act; the Wilmington coup and massacre; the Bonus Army March; and the American Indian Movement and Native American Rights.
This course is taught by Benjamin Railton – a Professor of English and American Studies at Fitchburg State University. ALL WISE classes held at the Southgate site are free of charge to Southgate Residents. Registered students from the outside community will be attending.
John Clark & Henry ‘Thins’ Francis
The jazz duo consisting of clarinetist/saxophonist John Clark and pianist Henry “thins” Francis, has been performing together since 1996 and as such, has compiled a bag of unique arrange- ments to familiar tunes we all know and love. The musical genre is best described as classic hot jazz, a distinct type of American music which de- veloped during the first half of the 20th century, covering the beginnings of jazz through the swing era. John and Henry concentrate on the rich source known as The Great American Songbook, which encompasses music (mostly songs) written by Broadway composers, pop songwriters, and jazz musicians. Their extensive knowledge of jazz and American popular song has yielded a large eclectic repertoire of interesting material, which they play with exuberance, swing, and taste.
We feel fortunate to live in a community where the Residents are friendly and the staff greets us by name.
