‘Bury Me in Redwood Country’ a ‘meditative experience’
Apr 09 2010, 8:31 AM
Redwood country, say Bainbridge Island filmmakers Benjamin Greené and Benj Cameron, is a study in meditation. There, trees older than man tower hundreds of feet high. Within their branches ecosystems thrive, and below them, dwarfed by their magnitude, humans from the world over attempt to comprehend their near infinite reach.

In Bremerton | Seattle Men's Chorus gives 'camp' a latin beat
Apr 15 2010, 1:05 PM
For what’s billed as a chorus concert, the words ‘chorus’ and ‘concert’ sure come up short. Really, an evening with the Seattle Men’s Chorus is “more like going to a Broadway show than it is to a symphony concert,” said artistic director Dennis Coleman.
Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra to present 'From the New World' | Director's View
Apr 16 2010, 3:09 PM
Last year I read a very interesting book by Jack Sullivan entitled, “New World Symphonies: How American Culture Changed European Music.” What struck me about the book was the very premise that American music and culture had influenced Europe, because that contradicted everything I thought I knew about the evolution of American classical music. Certainly, I was aware of the impact of rock and roll and that jazz became popular in Europe with classical composers. But I was dumbfounded to hear that Ravel said he’d learned as much from Edgar Allen Poe as he had from any composer. Clearly, the view that America in the late 1800s was deficient in native culture and had to learn everything from Europe needed some correcting.

‘Sylvia’ brings mid-life crisis laughs to Bainbridge
Apr 19 2010, 9:46 AM
Shakespearian verse is chockablock with the misfires of love triangles, but none of them are quite like that of A. R. Gurney’s “Sylvia,” a fiendishly humorous exhibition of psyche about a couple and their importunate dog.

The Arts | Birds of driftwood fly a colorful sky at Collective Visions

Throughout the month of May, the downtown Bremerton branch of the Kitsap Regional Library will feature European watercolors by Michelle Van Berkom . The artist will be present during the First Friday Art Walk, from 6-8 p.m. May 7. A portion of sales will be donated to the Library Foundation. “Libraries have always been special places for me,” Van Berkom said in a press release. “As a farm girl in Minnesota, I used to go to the local library and let books transport me to the exotic places I dreamed of. Later, as a sailor traveling to those exotic places, curling up on my bunk with a novel brought me that comforting feeling of being home. When my sailing days were over, it was at the Olympic College’s Haselwood Library that I found a new home.”
