Quartets deliver unforgettable love notes in four-part harmonyhttp://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/01/31/quartets-deliver-unforgettable-love-notes-in-four-part-harmony/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/01/31/quartets-deliver-unforgettable-love-notes-in-four-part-harmony/#comments Sun, 31 Jan 2016 13:40:14 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=103813 sonsofthesevernQuartets from the Sons of the Severn Barbershop Chorus are now taking orders for Singing Valentines throughout Anne Arundel and surrounding counties on February 12, 13 and 14, 2016 . Each Singing Valentine will include a silk rose, a Valentine’s Day card with the sender’s personal message, and two romantic songs in close harmony, sung by a genuine barbershop quartet in formal attire.

At a price of $50, a Singing Valentine offers an affordable alternative to the traditional flowers and chocolate. Singing Valentines may also be delivered via telephone (card and rose not included) for $15 each. The gift giver can choose the approximate time of delivery.

“People are always looking for that perfect gift, and in today’s economy, cost is a big consideration for the giver,” says Dave Bankard, the chorus’s Singing Valentine coordinator. “We provide a unique and heartwarming Valentine’s Day gift that has real value for a very reasonable price.” The Sons of the Severn will deliver Singing Valentines to women (and men) in such diverse locations as offices, homes, car dealerships, banks, restaurants, firehouses, stores, nursing homes, and even hospitals.

“It’s touching to see the look of surprise and tears of joy on a recipient’s face when we start singing,” says Joe Wise, who sings lead in the chorus.

To order a Singing Valentine, please visit www.singannapolis.com, call Mike at (443) 915-9100, or email VALENTINES@SINGANNAPOLIS.COM

The Sons of the Severn Barbershop Chorus is a non-profit educational organization under section 501(c)(3) of the internal revenue code. The annual Singing Valentines campaign is one of the organization’s major fundraising efforts in support of their core mission to preserve and advance the American musical art form of barbershop harmony, and to encourage music education in the schools and communities of Anne Arundel County.

Sledding tips from the Anne Arundel County Fire Departmenthttp://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/01/25/sledding-tips-from-the-anne-arundel-county-fire-department/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/01/25/sledding-tips-from-the-anne-arundel-county-fire-department/#comments Mon, 25 Jan 2016 09:45:28 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=103824 Sledding can be an excellent way to enjoy the winter weather. The joy of speeding down the hill can make it easy to forget that this activity can also lead to injuries. Taking a few safety measures can help keep you and your kids safe on the hills this winter. The following are recommendations from the Child Injury Prevention Alliance:

SLEDDING INJURY FACTS

  • Injuries often occur when the sled hits a stationary object or when the child falls off the sled.
  • Bruises, cuts and broken bones are the most common injuries.
  • Head and neck injuries are common among children 6 years old and younger.
  • GETTING READY TO SLED
  • Always wear a helmet to prevent head injuries. Multi-sport and bicycle helmets are good options.
  • Sleds that can be steered may be safer than flat sheets, snow discs, toboggans, and tubes.
  • Make sure children are dressed warmly and that they are wearing gloves and boots.

SLEDDING TIPS

  • Avoid sledding in areas with trees, fences, and light poles or on rocky hills.
  • Teach children to have an adult with them when they go sledding.
  • Always go down the hill feet first.
  • Learn how to stop and turn the sled by using your feet.
  • Have only the recommended number of passengers on a sled at one time.
  • Do not sled in the street or on a highway.
  • Never ride a sled being pulled by a car, ATV, snowmobile or other motorized vehicle.
  • Avoid sledding on driveways, hills or slopes that end in a street, drop off, parking lot, river or pond.
  • It is easier to see when you sled during the day. If you are going to sled at night, make sure the hill is well lit and that it is easy to see any potential hazards.

Sting & Peter Gabriel: Rocks, Paper, Scissors Tour at Verizon Center in Junehttp://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/01/20/sting-peter-gabriel-rocks-paper-scissors-tour-at-verizon-center-in-june/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/01/20/sting-peter-gabriel-rocks-paper-scissors-tour-at-verizon-center-in-june/#comments Wed, 20 Jan 2016 18:33:40 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=103696 sting-GabrielTwo of music’s most iconic artists – Sting and Peter Gabriel – will unite this summer for a once in a lifetime concert tour. Rock Paper Scissors, produced by Live Nation Global Touring, will visit select North American cities this June and July (complete itinerary follows). Tickets will go on sale starting January 25th and February 1st at www.livenation.com.

Having first toured together in the eighties for Amnesty International, Rock Paper Scissors will find Peter Gabriel and Sting performing both separately and together, playing their own songs as well as melding their bands to explore each other’s most celebrated hits. 

“I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am.” Sting

“What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen.” Peter Gabriel

Peter Gabriel first came to international prominence with the success of Genesis, a band that he co-founded while still at school. Since leaving Genesis in 1975, his recording career has included eleven studio albums, film soundtracks for Alan Parker’s ‘Birdy’, Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ and Philip Noyce’s ‘Rabbit Proof Fence’ as well as numerous live albums. His wider musical career has included multiple Grammy Awards, the creation of the Real World Records label, and in 1980 the creation of WOMAD, the festival that has launched the careers of many world music artists and has to date presented over 170 festivals in 30 countries.

Peter Gabriel co-founded the human rights organization WITNESS (Witness.org) in 1992, the organization that pioneers the use of cameras and technology in human rights campaigning, and in 2007, alongside Sir Richard Branson, he founded The Elders (theelders.org) which was launched by Nelson Mandela. In 2006, Peter Gabriel was awarded the prestigious Man of Peace title by The Nobel Peace Laureates and in 2008 was also included in the Time 100 list. He has been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice. He remains engaged in a wide variety of tech-based businesses throughout a variety of creative industries.

Composer, singer, actor, author, and activist – Sting was born in Newcastle, England before moving to London in 1977 to form The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. The band released five studio albums, earned six Grammy Awards and two Brits, and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.  Since 1989, Sting has released fourteen solo albums and received an additional 10 Grammy Awards, two Brits, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, three Oscar nominations, Billboard Magazine’s Century Award and MusiCares 2004 Person of the Year. Also a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he received the Kennedy Center Honors in December of 2014. Throughout his enduring career, he has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist. 

The Last Ship, his latest release, is inspired by his memories of the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in the North East of England where he was born and raised. A play of the same name, with music and lyrics by Sting, debuted on Broadway in October 2014 and was heralded by the Associated Press as “thrilling with powerful performances, outstanding songs and real heart.” Sting received a Tony Award nomination for Best Original Score. He has appeared in more than 15 films and authored two books, including The New York Times best-selling memoir, Broken Music. His support for human rights organizations mirrors his art in its universal outreach. Along with wife Trudie Styler, Sting founded the Rainforest Fund in 1989 to protect both the world’s rainforests and the indigenous people living there.

AJ Smith, student of Glenn Frey, releases albumhttp://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/01/18/aj-smith-student-of-glenn-frey-releases-album/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2016/01/18/aj-smith-student-of-glenn-frey-releases-album/#comments Mon, 18 Jan 2016 19:10:00 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=103652 AJ Smith Brooklyn NightsSinger-songwriter AJ Smith brings a fresh face to 2016’s indie music scene. Smith, the first graduate of New York University’s Songwriting Masters Program and the Songwriters Hall of Fame Songwriting Scholar, has taken a rather unconventional path for a recording artist. The 25-year-old gem’s pursuit of postgraduate education enabled him to study at the elbows of songwriting greats including Eagles’ legend Glenn Frey, Roseanne Cash, Phil Galdston, and many others.

Fostered by the love and support of NYU, Smith metGRAMMY-winning producer Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Vampire Weekend) whom Smith has collaborated with on his upcoming EP, including January 15th’s new single “Brooklyn Nights.” Thanks to Jacoby, “Brooklyn Nights” came to be mastered by GRAMMY-nominated in-demand mastering engineer Emily Lazar (Coldplay, Sia).

DC101’s Mike Jones compared the AJ Smith single to Fun’s GRAMMY-winning song “We Are Young,” while others liken Smith to Maroon 5’s Adam Levine or One Republic’s Ryan Tedder with a flair of Ed Sheeran and John Mayer. There’s a reason – in both its familiarity and individuality, “Brooklyn Nights” feels like it has always been your favorite song, even on first listen.

Despite pressure from industry execs, peers, and other artists to drop out of school and “learn on the road,” Smith believes that taking the time to master his craft in school was well worth it. Adopting a best-of-both-worlds attitude, Smith (thanks to scholarships awarded by the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Carole Bayer Sager) was not only able to continue his studies by day, but also tour during weekends & summer breaks, and perform in an off-Broadway musical “What’s It All About?” (now playing London’s West End) in evenings to further develop his multi-instrumental and performance skills (Smith plays piano, violin, guitar, mandolin, bass, banjo, uke, and sings).

“Brooklyn Nights” showcases the charm and introspection behind songwriting, drawing on the strengths of Smith’s seasoned voice and encouraging a community of diverse music lovers to interconnect and feel the Brooklyn vibe.

Starting January 15, 2015, “Brooklyn Nights” can be streamed at http://bit.ly/soundcloud-ajsmith and found on iTunes, Spotify, and CDBaby worldwide with further distribution to follow.

Smith’s next live performance is scheduled for January 27, 2016 at DC-area hotspot Jammin’ Java.

mitchellgalleryPhotography’s evolution as an art form has been influenced by countless individuals, thematic styles, and chemical processes. Initially, photography was used largely to document what surrounded or intrigued the public eye. As more individuals began using cameras, the idea grew that photography could be a form of art in addition to a form of documentation.

Pictorial and Modern Photography emerged from the shadows of a “point and shoot” craft into a style where artists, most notably Alfred Stieglitz (American, 1864-1946), strived to create painterly, romantic images. These soft and atmospheric images could be easily mistaken for a monochromatic painting, etching, or drawing.

The Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College exhibition “Pure Photography: Pictorial and Modern Photographs from the Syracuse University Art Collection,” on view from January 13 to February 28, features 35 works by several modern photographers, including Edward Steichen (American, 1879-1973), Éugene Atget (French, 1857-1927), Berenice Abbott (American, 1898-1991), and Manuel Alvarez Bravo (Mexican, 1902-2002).

Curator Emily Dittman, collection and exhibition coordinator at Syracuse University Art Galleries, will discuss the “Pure Photography” exhibition on Wednesday, January 13 at 5:30 p.m. Mitchell Gallery members are invited to a wine and cheese reception immediately following the lecture.

As part of the opening reception, Art Educator Lucinda Edinberg will lead a tour of the exhibition followed by a hands-on workshop on Sunday, January 17 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
