Collins leads annual "bringin' o' the green" to Albion 3/15

ALBION – Continuing a now-beloved annual tradition, Mitzie Collins will lead an assortment of musicians and, new this year, Irish dancers in a "Celtic Celebration," part of the Eastman at Albion Courthouse Square concert series.

"If ever anyone needed to see some green, it’s us and it’s soon," said concert committee member Marsha Rivers. "Everyone enjoys this concert. We always get a good crowd. With the dancers, I think we'll see even more folks out this year."

The series features Rochester-area musicians, often affiliated with the Eastman Community Music School, paired with Albion's architectural treasures – this time, the First Baptist Church on the corner of Park and Liberty Streets. The Celtic concert will be at 3 p.m. on March 15.

Along with the well-known Collins, the concert will feature the Striking Strings Hammered Dulcimer Ensemble, along with the Harmonious Harp Ensemble, directed by Roxanne Ziegler. The Drumcliffe School of Irish Dance will join the celebration, as well as popular Irish tenor Casey Costello.

Tickets cost $10 per seat, or $5 for students, and are available online at http://www.eastmanatalbion.com/ticket-sales/ or at Bindings Bookstore, Bloom’s Flower Shop, or Fischer’s Newsroom in Albion; a lily and a sparrow in Medina; Roxy’s Music Store in Batavia.

Sweet Sounds of Harps and Hammered Dulcimers to Fill Albion Hearts March 9
ALBION — Dance tunes and poignant airs, played on the sweet sounds of Celtic harps and hammered dulcimers, will transport the audience in a “Return To Ireland: Traditional Tunes and Songs” at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 9 at Holy Family Parish/St. Joseph’s Church, 106 S. Main St. Adding to the afternoon will be the singing of favorite Irish ballads by tenor Casey Costello.

Mitzie Collins has called upon her years of experience as an organizer and producer of Irish concerts to create an afternoon of varied textures and tempos. From the magical arpeggios of the Celtic harps, to the singing of Danny Boy, to the bright sounds of many hammers hitting many dulcimers, the concert will engage the audience of all ages in the rich traditions of Irish culture.
Harmonious Harps is an ensemble of student harpists from the studio of Roxanne Ziegler and has been performing since Fall 2012. Adults and school age children comprise the 6- to 10-member group. Ziegler is a versatile musician who performs for weddings and community celebrations. She is also a certified music practitioner through the Music for Healing and Transition and a staff musician at Spiritus Christi Church. Collins and Ziegler perform together frequently but Collins explains: “Rarely are we able to bring the ensembles together. We are so thrilled to bring our groups together for this program.”

Rounding out the afternoon will be choral ensembles from Albion High School, under the direction of Gary Simboli: The Men’s Select Choir singing “The Impossible Dream,” the Women’s Select Choir singing “Skylark,” and the Combined Select Choir singing “The Irish Blessing.”

Collins, who holds a B.M. in piano performance and a M.A. in Music Education from the Eastman School of Music, also teaches classes in Western Music History at the Eastman Community Music School. In 1975, with her husband Tom Bohrer, she started Sampler Records Ltd., an award-winning record company that has produced more than 30 recordings of traditional acoustic music. Collins teaches Western Music History as well as hammered dulcimer for the Eastman Community Music School. Collins will be honored by Mu Phi Epsilon Fraternity as Musician of the Year in Kilbourn Hall at Eastman on March 16th.

Mitzie Collins’ classes in hammered dulcimer have become so popular that she appointed Linda Sniedze Taggart as Assistant Director. Taggart is an outstanding performer and teacher who is building a national reputation. Casey Costello, tenor, is a recent graduate of the music program at Nazareth College: he won strong reviews for his performance at the 2013 Fringe Festival in Rochester.

Tickets cost $10 general admission, $5 for students, and are available for purchase now in Albion at Bindings Bookstore, 28 W. Bank St.; Blooms Flower Shop, 139 S. Main St.; Fischer’s Newsroom, 105 N. Main St, and in Medina at a lily and a sparrow, 510 Main St., and in Batavia at Roxy's Music Store, 228 W. Main St. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Albion Alumni Foundation Scholarships. The church is handicapped accessible.

Albion Courthouse Square Concert Series

Perennially popular concert to promote “Christmas Peace,” Dec. 8
ALBION — The next Eastman at Albion Courthouse Square concert will be neighborly and festive, as holiday celebrations should be. The Genesee Chorale, a top-notch amateur singing ensemble from the county due south, will traverse Route 98—“over the river and through the woods” (past cornfields and mucklands, too)—to present a program of “Christmas Peace” at 3 p.m. on Dec. 8 at the First Presbyterian Church, 29 East State St.
Familiar favorites such as “Jingle Bells,” “Star in the East” and “Go Tell It On the Mountain,” will mingle with newer selections, including “What Strangers Are These?” by Dan Forrest, and “The Yearning,” by Craig Courtney. Directing the choir will be another neighbor, Ric Jones, of Medina.
“We are excited and honored to be the featured group for this year’s Eastman at Albion Christmas concert,” Jones said. “Upon our founding in 1971, the Genesee Chorale was made up of primarily Albion and Batavia residents, so this is a 'coming home' of sorts for the group. Personally, I am so pleased to be able to share this fantastic group with my home area and county. Christmas-time is undoubtedly the best possible time to bring two fantastic communities together through music.” Concert organizers Diane Palmer and Maarit Vaga agree. They recognize the Christmas concert has become a tradition for many in the area. “This is a wonderful time of year and we will celebrate the season together in this special concert,” stated Vaga.
Joining the Chorale will be musical guests from the Albion High School instrumental ensembles, as well as Albionite vocalist Alec Sherman, who will present a special song in memory of loved ones who will be missed this holiday season. As tradition holds, an audience song-along will be part of the program.
Tickets cost just $5 each. Proceeds will benefit Albion Alumni High School Foundation Scholarships. Find more information and tickets at A Lily and A Sparrow, 510 Main St., Medina; Bindings Bookstore, 28 W. Bank St., Albion; Bloom’s Flower Shop, 139 S.
