At The Barn Sale in Hamden, Volunteers Keep on Dealing

Perhaps the reason The Barn Sale has endured for a half-century is that there’s no other place quite like it. The prices are reasonable for such a wide array of items. Besides, customers can feel good about supporting a place that donates 50 percent of its proceeds to local charities such as the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport and the Community Soup Kitchen in New Haven.

New Luxury Guesthouse Tall Tales Sprouts up at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa

The original plan was for the new, six-room boutique “beach house” in Old Saybrook to be a bit more diminutive than the elegant Three Stories next door. But flood elevations kept rising, necessitating engineering changes that resulted in a taller-than-expected building.

Rob Mathes 20th Annual Holiday Concert

THE 20TH ANNUAL ROB MATHES CHRISTMAS CONCERT

Ring in the Holidays with Rob Mathes and Friends – December 20 & 21, 2013

Presented at The Performing Arts Center, Purchase College

 

 

Greenwich, Conn., October 10, 2013 -- This year marks the 20th annual Rob Mathes Christmas Concert! And what a celebration it will be -- Rob Mathes will perform with special guests, original versions of holiday classics and Mathes favorites that everyone has come to know and love.  Concerts are Friday, December 20, and Saturday, December 21, 8 p.m., at The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College. Tickets are $40, $50, and $75 and are available online at artscenter.org or by calling 914-251-6200.

Rob Mathes will take center stage with his band of New York City All-Star musicians and perform an inimitable set of songs combining his original scores, many of which have been recorded by artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville, Rascal Flatts and Vanessa Williams, along with extraordinary arrangements of holiday classics. Several of the numbers utilize a seven-piece horn section featuring players from the recent Rolling Stones tour, Aretha Franklin, and James Brown's band, to name a few. The arrangements evoke sounds as disparate as Duke Ellington, Prince, Nelson Riddle and Bob Marley.  The 20th anniversary Rob Mathes Christmas Concert will highlight special guests as well as performances by Rob’s world-class band made up of Will Lee on bass, Billy Masters on guitar, Shawn Pelton and Joe Bonadio on drums, Rick Knutsen on keyboards, and vocalists James “D Train” Williams, Ian Cron, Vanese Thomas and 30+ member full choir of Saints and Friends. 

Emmy award-winning and Grammy-nominated Mathes has worked with every legendary name in the music industry, arranging, producing, directing, recording and performing with the likes of Sting, Sir Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Tony Bennett, Bono and more. The past couple years have showcased Rob’s unique talents as he worked on numerous collaborations with Sting, most recently co-producing Sting’s latest record The Last Ship, Sting’s first original album in ten years; and working as the music supervisor and orchestrator for Sting’s Broadway play, The Last Ship, opening the fall of 2014. Rob just finished orchestrations for another set of songs by Bruce Springsteen and has worked closely with Fall Out Boy, Panic At The Disco and the young wunderkind Tori Kelly on his debut album. Lou Reed called Rob this year to revisit some tracks from his classic record Transformer. Rob was nominated again for an Emmy for musically directing the Kennedy Center Honors for the 10th year running, and his score for the HBO film Thurgood was also nominated for an Emmy. Rob is preparing to produce a record by the great Blues and Rock Vocalist Beth Hart, and from a different world, his chamber orchestration of Mahler's Resurrection Symphony (No. 2) has been released by Mahler's publisher Universal Edition under the direction of the world famous Mahler Scholar and Conductor Gilbert Kaplan. 

This holiday season, in addition to Rob’s own Christmas Concert, Rob will be musically directing the holiday specials, Christmas in Washington, and the Kennedy Center Honors, the award-winning music extravaganza that celebrates the careers of the most influential musicians and performers of our time.

Despite his busy schedule, Rob always finds time to bring his unique musical magic home for the holidays. Every year Rob’s concert benefits a charity, and this year will be no exception, with all proceeds benefiting a non-profit close to Rob’s heart, Through the Eyes of Children: The Rwanda Project.

Tickets for the Rob Mathes Christmas Concert are $40, $50 & $75 and are available at the Performing Arts Center Box Office artscenter.org or by calling 914-251-6200.  To learn more about the non-profit concert beneficiary Through the Eyes of Children: The Rwanda Project, visit the website rwandaproject.org.  To learn more about Rob Mathes and his annual Christmas Concert, visit www.robmathes.com.
