A review of the summer concert series, so far.
The Woodstock Artist Association’s 100th Anniversary heats up again in the coming week as it heads towards its big Birthday Bash on Saturday, July 20, complete with cake and ice cream party in a tent out back of the classic building just off the Village Green.
African-American talent will be showcased in two operas at the tenth annual Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice, August 2-4, in the Shandaken hamlet of Phoenicia.
The Woodstock Film Festival will return for its 20th year this October, bringing a slate of independent movies to Hudson Valley theaters, in addition to talks, panels, and Q+As.
Pete Mauney lives in Tivoli, watches the night sky, and makes art out of the sort of wonderings so many of us have each summer. His solo exhibition opening at the Kleinert/James Arts Center this week, Pete Mauney: Nocturnal Transmissions, captures that moment when fireflies appear to morph into stars; the vivid visual arrays some of us take our kids to see, when very young, at airports; as well as that special beauty which occurs when we closely watch a singular stretch of landscape for a long time.
The latest plan calls for a smaller-sized festival to take place outside Syracuse, but nothing is for sure.

The Weir, to be presented by Performing Arts of Woodstock (PAW) from May 30 through June 23 at Woodstock’s Mescal Hornbeck Community Center, takes its title from the word for a small dam constructed to divert the flow of water, symbolizing what happens in the play. Written by Conor McPherson and directed by Warren Kelder, the drama is set in a rural pub in Ireland in the 1990s.
The Woodstock 50 Festival is a step closer to getting back millions of dollars that were swept from its bank account by the festival’s original financiers, Dentsu Aegis Network’s Amplifi Live.
