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?

presented by the Music Advisory Committee
 
   

Masterwork Conversations

Pianists Matthew Harrison and Vlada Yaneva present

Russia: A Composer’s Revolution

Lying in the east, for many years beyond the reach of western classical harmonies, Russia waited for the right moment to make its debut upon the European musical scene.  When it finally did, an explosion of composers brought Russia to the forefront of the European tradition with a passion and genius that still shines brightly today.  Tchaikovsky was the first and guiding light of a new voice that merged western forms with a distinctly Russian flair for raw, unbridled emotion.  Soon followed the composer-pianist pair of Rachmaninoff and Scriabin, classmates and rivals whose works rise to the summit of pianistic perfection.  Stravinsky later changed everything music could be, leading the forefront of the avant-garde with a music that shocked and amazed audiences, and even provoked a riot in Paris!  Russia still remains “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma,” but Masterwork Conversations will get to the center of this musical matryoshka doll! 

Pianists Matthew Harrison and Vlada Yaneva have been bringing Masterwork Conversations to audiences since their inaugural Chopin series in 2010.  Their performances have taken them from stages in Europe to Carnegie Hall to the airwaves of WQXR, and the Wall Street Journal has featured Mr. Harrison’s article on Grieg: “Norwegian Soul Laid Bare.”  Their open conversation recital format has brought new musical insight and enjoyment to audiences of every age and experience.  In 2015 they released their debut CD, The Imagination of the Folk.
