Theater
Rhinebeck: Center for Performing Arts: The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie,​ based upon the book by Muriel Sparks, by Jay Presson Allen. The story follows Jean Brodie’s flamboyant attempts to infiltrate a traditional school curriculum with uncensored European art and culture. Eventually, her efforts become focused on four girls, “the crème de la crème” as she calls them. With the girls by her side, Brodie goes on various outings and discusses her plans for each of the girls. Meanwhile, she leads along two male faculty members, the straight-laced choirmaster Gordon Lowther, and the smitten-but-married artist Teddy Lloyd. These affairs ignite the imaginations of the girls, but also alert them to the power of free-choice in shaping their own lives. Veteran director Michael Juzwak and assistant director Tina Reilly shape this classic Tony Award Winning play with skill and vision into a production that is not to be missed. Says Juzwak, “The play resonates today because it reminds us to think for ourselves.  When we get so much noise from mentors and teachers and social media and the news outlets, we need to remember to make decisions on our own.  To listen to our inner voice and be who we are, not what someone else thinks we are.” 3 pm.   (845-876-3080)  http://centerforperformingarts.org→

Concert
West Park, NY:  Holy Cross Monastery: Kairos: A Consort of Singers, under the direction of Dr. Edward Lundergan.  Cantata 76, Die Himmel Erzählen die Ehre Gottes, by J.S. Bach, is one of the first two works he wrote for his long and storied position at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig. The text, "The Heavens Proclaim the Glory of God," connects the Old Testament and the New, opening with words from Psalm 19 and including text from the First Epistle of John. The cantata is a large work, with much brilliant music for both the orchestra and the choir; it has fourteen movements in two parts.The program also includes the motet Christi Dei Soboles, by the Netherlandish composer Orlando di Lasso, one of the most famous and influential musicians of the entire Renaissance.Kairos’s critically acclaimed Bach Cantata Series is now in its 13th year. The cantatas are performed in the context of evensong, a meditative vespers tradition that can be traced to the medieval church. The service provides an unparalleled opportunity to hear Bach's cantatas, which are among his most significant and celebrated compositions, in the context for which they were written. 1615 Rte 9W, 3 pm.
