Guitar Orchestra & Latin American Ensemble Concert

The KSC Guitar Orchestra's program for the Fall 2011 concert will be titled "Mostly Concerti." It will include the Concertino for two guitars and guitar orchestra (2006) by Dutch composer Jan Bartlema, and movements from concerti by JS Bach and Antonio Vivaldi, including the sublime Adagio from Bach's double-violin concerto. Rounding out the program will be Franz Schubert's lyrical "Serenade," Gabriel Faure's melodious "Berceuse," and Isaac Albeniz' flamenco-tinged "Rumores de la Caleta." 

The fourteen-member ensemble includes standard guitars, octave guitar, mandolin, and acoustic bass guitar. Most recently, members of the Orchestra toured Northern Ecuador (2010) performing at various universities and at the 700-seat Casa de la Musica in Quito, and the KSCGO performed in 2009 and 2010 at the Boston Guitar Society's Festival 21.

The KSC Latin Ensemble will present traditional music from the Andes on panpipes, charango, mandolin, and guitar, and will be assisted by members of the KSC flute choir and solo singers from the KSC Music Dept. Both ensembles are directed by Dr. Jose Manuel Lezcano, Professor of Music.

Ever wanted to learn how to juggle? Perhaps you’d like to spin some poi. Maybe you feel you could use a fun core workout and were thinking about hula hooping. Could be you’ve seen those Fushigi commercials and feel drawn to contact juggling. 
Come to a SpinJam - an open environment for the sharing of movement and object manipulation skills. Professor Lowery, a 12-year veteran of fire performance and an active participant in the Boston SpinJam community, has volunteered his time to help the Franklin Pierce community start playing! Starter tools provided - we’ll have hula hoops, contact juggling spheres, juggling balls, poi, and a few staffs to help you get started. The earlier you start practicing, the sooner you’ll become awesome. All Spinjams are on the basketball courts in the Bubble. Bring appropriate footwear.
All are open to the public, although the SpinJams will require the $5 bubble fee for non-student/staff. 

Author Nancy Kilgore Reads From 'Sea Level'

Time: 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Place: Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St., Brattleboro, VT

Price: Free
Ages: older crowd

Ms. Kilgore will discuss her first published book on fiction, Sea Level.

Sea Level begins in 1980 when Brigid Peterson becomes the first woman minister in Sand Hill, Virginia, a remote town on the Delmarva Peninsula. Women’s roles are in flux, in both church and society, and Brigid’s parishioners are apprehensive about their new minister, but when she preaches about the female aspect of God, some of them become enraged, and the church is thrown into turmoil. With her marriage in jeopardy and her friend Mary hopelessly in love with an alcoholic drifter, Brigid becomes submerged in conflict and has to dive deeper into her own spiritual life to find the way out.

Nancy Kilgore lives and writes in Vermont and works as a psychotherapist in Hanover, New Hampshire. She is an ordained minister and has served as interim pastor of Congregational (UCC), Presbyterian (PCUSA), and Unitarian (UUA) churches. Visit her author page at
