Chorus of Westerly Announces New Executive Director

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

THE CHORUS OF
WESTERLY
WELCOMES NEW EXECUTIVE
DIRECTOR
RYAN A. SAUNDERS

The Chorus of Westerly is
pleased to announce the appointment of Ryan A. Saunders as its new Executive
Director.  Mr. Saunders, a former child and teenage member of the Chorus of
Westerly, will begin his new position with the organization in July.

A
native of the Westerly/Pawcatuck area, Mr. Saunders’s roots with the Chorus of
Westerly are quite deep.  He joined the Chorus in 1986 as a treble (boy soprano)
and sang with the ensemble through his graduation from Stonington High School in 1996.  Since that time, Mr.
Saunders, currently a resident of Natick, MA,
has remained active with the Chorus serving frequently as a volunteer and as a
member of the organization’s Board of Directors.  He most recently served as
Vice President of the organization.  In addition to his work in Westerly, Mr. Saunders has served annually on the volunteer
staff of the Chorus’s annual summer choir camp for its youth members in
New
Hampshire.

Outside of his work with the Chorus,
Mr. Saunders’s arts management background is quite extensive.  After graduating
from Wheaton College in 2000 (where he served as an assistant to
the choral director), Mr. Saunders was hired by Tufts University as an events producer and
publicist for their department of music.  During his first five years with
Tufts, Mr. Saunders helped oversee a dramatic expansion of the Tufts Music
concert season from 50 to over 100 concerts annually, as well as a nearly
doubling in total and average concert attendance.  In 2007, upon the opening of
Tufts University’s new Granoff Music
Center, Mr. Saunders was
promoted to Manager of Events and Public Relations for both the new center and
the department.  His new duties included overseeing a large staff, managing two
state-of-the-art performances halls and an active box office, as well as
directing and executing an expanded events season of nearly 200 concerts and
other activities.  He most recently was the winner of a Tufts University
Distinction Award, the 2009 Change Agent Award, for creating new opportunities
for innovation.

Mr. Saunders is a former member of the Council of
Electors for the Center of the Arts, Natick, and
has a master’s degree in arts administration (with a focus on performing arts
management) from Boston University.  He is married to Alisa
Merrifield Saunders, a kindergarten teacher in Dover, MA.

“On behalf of Music Director George
Kent, the Board of Directors, staff, and singers, we are all very excited to
have Ryan joining us as our new Executive Director and welcome him back home!
 Ryan’s leadership and passion for the Chorus of Westerly will be the catalyst
for the Chorus’ future success as we begin our next 50 years!” said Chorus of
Westerly President Deborah Dunham.

Naomi Sultanik At Eveline Luppi Gallery

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Eveline Luppi Gallery

presents

NAOMI SULTANIK

Memory and Tradition

Works on paper and Assemblages

Exhibit: May 27- June 28, 2009

Reception: Saturday, June 13 3-6 PM

When One Is Two And Two Equals One

Naomi Sultanik’s art is deeply grounded in the influence of memory and tradition.

In the artist’s words, “I draw upon landscapes that are part of my history yet seem

to renew themselves in the present. We understand the ‘view’ we see but the presence

and implications of the unseen take us into a world of seductive connections.”

Sultanik works in a surprisingly diverse range of media. The “Linguring Descent,”

series is an innovative blend of fiber and paper art, based on memories from a sojourn

in Poland. The various shades of beiges, grays, browns, whites, and blacks are interwoven

in a subtle and complex rhythm, built up from bits of textile and paper that include

pages from the Kracow book markets. These works convey a feeling of profound meditation

on the processes of experience and memory, the unified simplicity that arises from

a complex underlying pattern.

“When One Is Two And Two Equals One,” an assemblage series in paper and metal, has

a different focus: the complex processes, tensions, and fragile beauty of human

relationships. Each piece is composed of two elongated black paper rectangles, that

are bound together with an intricately worked, jewel-like filigree of copper wire.

“The Eye Catches The Fish” is a series of nine in pastel and charcoal, All nine

paintings depict a common image: a mysterious bowl-like emblem with a leaf-like

insert that is presented in various backgrounds and colors. In the exhibit, all

twelve paintings are hung together, creating a poignant, cumulative intensity from

this variation on a common theme.

One of the most innovative pieces is “Thus Spake Zarathustra- Japanese Version”,

a free-hanging assemblage created from pages of a book wrapped individually and

strongly in colored fabric. Again in the artist’s words, “I found a Japanese translation

of Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra, abandoned and soaked with rain in a gutter

in Amsterdam. I took it home and built this piece from it.” It is a beautiful and

unusual piece. Looking at it, one gets the sense of a deep meditation on creation

and reshaping of experience, the complicated transmission (and sometimes distortion)

of images and concepts.

Films from the Family Life Center: Stronger Than Their Walls

A film about probation, exoneration, and people fighting for the

second chance they deserve. RI state law allows people on probation to

be incarcerated for crimes for which they have been exonerated,

although almost every other state does it differently. This

documentary follows the story of several men who were presumed guilty

and never given a fair chance to demonstrate their innocence. The

families of these imprisoned men take the issue to the Rhode Island

Statehouse, where they tell their stories in an effort to reform the

law. 45 minutes. Produced with support from the Rhode Island Family

Life Center and the Rhode Island Council of Humanities Film by Nick

Horton, Julia Liu, Jon Mahone, and Keith Heywar

Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra, Drunkdriver, Green Cobweb, and Morgan

Egg

Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra work with noise, silence and

abjection. They transgress all notions of what a performance can be.

The Wire (Dec. 2005 U.K.) –”The long awaited debut release of Deflag

Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra aka Mattin (guitar, vocals and computer

feedback) and Goldie (drums, vocals, disc, chain and bird whistle]

comprises 15 tracks recorded between July 2002 and November 2003. It

includes one truly scary field recording made by Zoe Broughton at

Huntingdon Life Sciences back in 1997, where she was working

undercover for a Channel Four documentary to expose the notorious

animal research facility’s appalling cruelty to animals (see www.shac.net/HLS/exposed/broughton.html) . A concert or album of unrelenting ferocious noise, whether by

Hijokaidan, Borbetomagus, Merzbow or The Dust Breeders, may be a

highly enjoyable rush of pure adrenaline, but it’s no longer exactly a

surprise. Mattin and Goldie can burst eardrums as well as the above -

watch your speakers on the apocalyptic “Submucosa”- but they’ve learnt

their lowercase lesson well, and use disturbingly quiet passages and

slow menacing drones to equally devastating effect. Mattin is as

unpredictable as ever, lurching from the kind of delicate laptoppery

that graced his Grob release Building Excess with Klaus Filip, Dean

Roberts and Radu Malfatti, to blasts of unmitigated sonic terror that

will melt the fillings in your teeth. His guitar work and vocals are

just as extreme, especially on the splendidly titled “It’s Not Your

Fault You Are The Authentic Version Of What The Rest Of Us Can Only

Imagine”, apparently recorded live (listening to the screams of terror

and the vicious thudding of heavy chains I’m glad I wasn’t there).

Goldie’s drumming is savage and ritualistic, from the isolated

explosions of “Humiliated” to the all-out blitzkrieg ofhis solo

offering “Lacguage = Noumenal Sarcoshyce” [sic] (a whole page of

similarly impenetrable logorrhea adorns the album cover), but it’s

refreshingly far removed from both free jazz and Improv percussion

cliche, even though I suspect his collection includes a fair number of

Eddie Prevost albums. Luxury is an album of awesome intensity, one

that deserves to be blasted mercilessly from a 40,000W PA outside

Huntingdon Life Sciences every day until the torture ceases.” –Dan

Warburton.

hardly any space, they will eat almost anything, and are easily

tamed… I personally don’t agree with these people. However, they do

make a great name for a loud freaking band that is playing at Foo Fest

Films from the Family Life Center: Stronger Than Their Walls

A film about probation, exoneration, and people fighting for the

second chance they deserve. RI state law allows people on probation to

be incarcerated for crimes for which they have been exonerated,

although almost every other state does it differently. This

documentary follows the story of several men who were presumed guilty

and never given a fair chance to demonstrate their innocence. The

families of these imprisoned men take the issue to the Rhode Island

Statehouse, where they tell their stories in an effort to reform the

law. 45 minutes. Produced with support from the Rhode Island Family

Life Center and the Rhode Island Council of Humanities Film by Nick

Horton, Julia Liu, Jon Mahone, and Keith Heywar

Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra, Drunkdriver, Green Cobweb, and Morgan

Egg

Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra work with noise, silence and

abjection. They transgress all notions of what a performance can be.

The Wire (Dec. 2005 U.K.) –”The long awaited debut release of Deflag

Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra aka Mattin (guitar, vocals and computer

feedback) and Goldie (drums, vocals, disc, chain and bird whistle]

comprises 15 tracks recorded between July 2002 and November 2003. It

includes one truly scary field recording made by Zoe Broughton at

Huntingdon Life Sciences back in 1997, where she was working

undercover for a Channel Four documentary to expose the notorious

animal research facility’s appalling cruelty to animals (see www.shac.net/HLS/exposed/broughton.html) . A concert or album of unrelenting ferocious noise, whether by

Hijokaidan, Borbetomagus, Merzbow or The Dust Breeders, may be a

highly enjoyable rush of pure adrenaline, but it’s no longer exactly a

surprise. Mattin and Goldie can burst eardrums as well as the above -

watch your speakers on the apocalyptic “Submucosa”- but they’ve learnt

their lowercase lesson well, and use disturbingly quiet passages and

slow menacing drones to equally devastating effect. Mattin is as

unpredictable as ever, lurching from the kind of delicate laptoppery

that graced his Grob release Building Excess with Klaus Filip, Dean

Roberts and Radu Malfatti, to blasts of unmitigated sonic terror that

will melt the fillings in your teeth. His guitar work and vocals are

just as extreme, especially on the splendidly titled “It’s Not Your

Fault You Are The Authentic Version Of What The Rest Of Us Can Only

Imagine”, apparently recorded live (listening to the screams of terror

and the vicious thudding of heavy chains I’m glad I wasn’t there).

Goldie’s drumming is savage and ritualistic, from the isolated

explosions of “Humiliated” to the all-out blitzkrieg ofhis solo

offering “Lacguage = Noumenal Sarcoshyce” [sic] (a whole page of

similarly impenetrable logorrhea adorns the album cover), but it’s

refreshingly far removed from both free jazz and Improv percussion

cliche, even though I suspect his collection includes a fair number of

Eddie Prevost albums. Luxury is an album of awesome intensity, one

that deserves to be blasted mercilessly from a 40,000W PA outside

Huntingdon Life Sciences every day until the torture ceases.” –Dan

Warburton.

Some people think these critters make great pets, they don’t take up

hardly any space, they will eat almost anything, and are easily

tamed… I personally don’t agree with these people. However, they do

make a great name for a loud freaking band that is playing at Foo Fest

this August 15th. If you think you know who I’m talking about—be

the first to send me the band name and I will make sure you get to

see them, and the Arkestra, and Lightning Bolt, and Mary Bee, and MORE

great performances for free.
