ent_note 2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM The Great Neck Library Music Advisory Committee Presents Soprano Liora Michelle Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Broken Hearts, Exalted Spirits - Soprano Liora Michelle and her favorite musical partners-in-crime, tenor Neal Harrelson and pianist Inna Leytush serve up an afternoon smorgasborg of delightful and consuming duets, arias and songs. Indulge in the mesmerizing music of 'the greats', Verdi, Donizetti, Puccini, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Lehar and more.

Having begun a steady career in Australia as a principal soprano for the Melbourne City Opera, Liora Michelle’s current performance repertory includes over 25 heroines in opera’s most celebrated works. With a vocal color that suits bel canto as well as the more lyric verismo roles, she is a rare, versatile singer with a remarkable breadth of repertory. She has performed classic lyric soprano roles to critical acclaim, including Mimì, Musetta, Micaela, Nedda, Leonora (Il Trovatore) and Desdemona (Otello) among others.

Please register at 466-8055, ext. 208 or register online. Great Neck Library District residents have priority for seating.

Photographs of Dogs for Adoption at the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter ......... Photography Exhibit presented by The Shelter Connection

On Display Through the Month of May in the Library Gallery

“Is today the day?”

If shelter dogs could understand why they’re away from home, in a kennel, that is what they would ask. They don’t know they’re being kept warm, safe, and fed after being lost, abandoned, or surrendered by owners unfit or unable to care for them. They don’t know they’re being vaccinated, trained, and spayed/neutered to prepare them for a new home where they will again experience the love they lost.

The Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter and its non-profit partner The Shelter Connection work together to improve the lives of the dogs you see here and many like them. Unlike private shelters, municipal facilities take all homeless dogs– no matter if they’re old, blind, deaf, missing limbs, or traumatized. Municipal shelters do not reject dogs that may be hard to place. This is where cooperation between the shelter and The Shelter Connection comes in.

No dog that can be saved will be put down. Fundraising by The Shelter Connection pays for medical procedures not covered by the Town budget. Since 2006, that money has also saved the lives of 683 dogs from overpopulated local shelters by bringing them to our shelter– dogs that might have otherwise  been euthanized for lack of space.

The photographs in this exhibit were taken to celebrate the dogs, the staff, and the volunteers who believe there is a “forever home” for every shelter dog. That home could be yours. Is today the day?

Failed State: Dysfunction and Corruption in an American Statehouse By Seymour P. Lachman and Robert Polner

Failed State shines a light on the dark corners of New York’s legislature and points the way to much-needed reform. Drawing on his experiences both in and out of state government, former New York State senator Seymour P. Lachman reveals and explores Albany’s hush-hush, top-down processes, illuminating the hidden, secretive corners where the state assembly and state senate conduct the people’s business and spend public money.

Seymour P. Lachman is the Founding Director of the Hugh L. Carey Institute for Government Reform at Wagner College, where he is also Dean Emeritus and Distinguished University Professor Emeritus. A Democrat from Brooklyn, he served in the New York State Senate from 1996 through 2004 and is the author of Mr. New York: Lew Rudin and His Love for the City. Robert Polner is a Public Affairs Officer at New York University, and while working on this book was also Senior Research Fellow for the Carey Institute. Together Lachman and Polner are the coauthors of The Man Who Saved New York: Hugh Carey and the Great Fiscal Crisis of 1975, also published by SUNY Press.

Looking Back, Moving Forward: A Musical Odyssey with The Counterclockwise Ensemble

Join The Counterclockwise Ensemble for a unique listening experience that combines the intimacy and instrumentation of chamber music with the energy and vitality of a rock concert. Evoking the mood and spirit of both European and American classical masterpieces, the Ensemble will take you on a sonic journey that draws much of its inspiration from the natural beauty of the American landscape in full bloom and the hearty music of its people in celebration.

The Counterclockwise Ensemble is a guitar, strings and percussion quintet that plays contemporary American chamber music. Equally at home in a variety of genres, the group primarily plays the compositions of guitarist Rich Stein, sprinkling in pieces by Gustav Holst, Aaron Copland and Led Zeppelin as well as traditional American and Irish folk tunes into their sets.

Originally formed in order to perform the pieces on Stein’s CDs Unspoken (2003) and Counterclockwise (2007), the current ensemble includes founding members Rich Stein (guitar), Andrew and Rebecca Perea (violin and cello), Glen Saunders (double bass) and Jim Mansfield (percussion).
