Art Hounds: Memory

Thursdays, 4:50 p.m. & Fridays, 7:55 a.m.

Warren artist Julia Purinton recommended the kick-off performance of Phantom Theater's summer line-up, "Long Gone."

The dance performance at Edgcomb Barn in Warren explores how our dead continue to live and evolve through memory and imagination.

Singer Richard Haines suggested the Summer Music Associates concert on June 29th at Colby Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire, featuring the Boston Civic Symphony Orchestra.

The program includes Beethoven's  Overture to "Fidelio,” Franck's  Symphony in d minor, Prokofiev's “Lt. Kije Suite” Op. 60 and others.

Nancy Leary called in about a unique historic reenactment of sorts, called, “The Rivalry,” taking place during Brandon’s Independence Day festivities.

The staged reading is a memory play, including reenactment of the Lincoln-Douglas  debates and features formers Vermont governors Madeleine Kunin and Jim Douglas.

Stephen Douglas was born in Brandon, Vermont 200 years ago.

And when you take a drive through Morrisville this summer, make sure to pull over and take a seat. Community development coordinator Tricia Follert invites listeners to take a seat in the several Adirondack chairs decorated by local artists, community and local art classes. Find the decorated chairs from the North end through the south end, near Rock Art Brewery.
