Plant Diversity: The Leitmotif of Botanical Gardens
by Pamela Thompson
(Jamaica Plain, MA)
Plant Diversity: The Leitmotif of Botanical Gardens Richard T. Olsen, PhD, Director, US National Arboretum
1 Session: Monday, April 18, 7:00–8:30pm
Location: Hunnewell Building, Boston Arboretum
Plant diversity, whether for conservational or aesthetic value, is the recurring theme in botanical gardens that connects our displays, research, and visitor experiences to our missions. While the domestication of crop species has significantly altered their genomes from that of their wild crop relatives, the majority of horticultural crops are not that far removed from their wild relatives. Thus, we still explore, document, and cultivate the untapped diversity in the world’s temperate floras to enrich our gardens. Join Richard Olsen, Director of the US National Arboretum, as he considers what legacies remain from early plant explorations, how do we document and capture diversity, and where do we go from here, in a century that will see so much lost to globalization?

Tony Award winner 'ART' by Yasmina Reza presented by Hub Theatre Company of Boston
Hub Theatre Company of Boston opens its highly anticipated fourth season with Yasmina Reza’s Tony-award winning play ‘ART’ starring John Geoffrion, Bob Mussett and Victor Shopov at First Church in Boston, Friday, April 8 through Saturday, April 23, 2016. You won't want to miss the play Newsweek describes as "a marriage of Molière and Woody Allen."
What is art, what is friendship, and which is more important? Life-long friends Serge, Marc and Yvan are about to find out! After Serge spends a small fortune on an unusual piece of modern art, he expects Marc and Yvan to be as excited as he is. Instead, words fly and sparks ignite as the men square off over the canvas. Lines are drawn (both literally and figuratively) and their ensuing battle grows to encompass not just the painting but past failures and personal failings. With white-hot wisecracks and discerning commentary, ‘ART’ is a sophisticated, humorous and provocative evening of theatre.
IRNE award nominee Daniel Bourque directs a talented trio of Boston’s finest actors: John Geoffrion (IRNE award winner), Bob Mussett (IRNE award nominee) and Victor Shopov (IRNE and Elliot Norton award winner) in this wickedly contentious and wildly comedic play that will keep you pondering the significance of friendship and the value of art long after you leave the theatre.
All tickets are Pay-What-You-Can! We don't decide the price, you do. Our 'sweet spot' would be about $20; if you are on a budget, pay less, and if you are able to pay more, please do!

A Brave Barrel of Oysters: Music of Samuel Pepys' London
April 4, 2016 at 7:30pm
Samuel Pepys, one of history’s most prolific diarists and a secretary of the Royal Navy during the reign of Charles II, was a man of his time and enjoyed all the cultural delights of the Restoration. He frequently heard some of the finest musicians of his day and often enjoyed music-making with the very same musicians in his drawing room after dinner. With music and dramatic readings from Pepys’ diaries, Seven Times Salt recreates the bustling energy of Restoration London, as described by English Literature’s quirkiest and most beloved “man on the street”.

Public Dialogue: Can Judaism Survive a Jewish State? On the First and Second Books of Maccabees
by The Maccabees Project
Date and Time: 7:30pm, April 13, 2016 Location: Congregation Kehillath Israel / 384 Harvard Street / Brookline, MA
From 586 BCE until the rise of modern Israel in 1948, a politically autonomous Jewish state existed for just 80 years, in Judea under Hasmonean rule. How have experiences of political autonomy and foreign rule shaped Judaism?
Our features speakers Daniel Schwartz (Hebrew University), Robert Doran (Amherst College), and Jonathan Klawans (Boston University) will first consider the very different perspectives found in two ancient books: First Maccabees presents the Hasmoneans’ achievement of political autonomy as evidence of supreme piety; Second Maccabees, in contrast, emphasizes cultic practice and extreme personal devotion, but shows little interest in Hasmonean rule. Do the differences reflect disagreements about the nature of piety and its relationship to politics? Can a historical perspective help clarify problematic relationships between religious freedom, political power, and land in our own time?
This event is free and open to the public but seating is limited. Please RSVP by emailing email@example.com to save your spot.
Lexington Symphony Presents "The Essential Ring, Part I"
by Karen Sampson
Music Director Jonathan McPhee and the combined orchestras of Lexington Symphony and Symphony New Hampshire present
THE ESSENTIAL RING, PART I A selection of the greatest music from Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle Saturday, April 2, 2016 | 7:30 p.m. Cary Hall, 1605 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA
Presented in cooperation with the Boston Wagner Society
Music Director Jonathan McPhee has long been inspired by Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle, which has a lot in common with another literary work, Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Not only are there similarities in the stories, which both center around a magic ring, but both are also epic works: Tolkien’s missive takes 52 hours on average to read, while Wagner’s Ring Cycle takes approximately 16 hours to perform. Maestro McPhee has taken all four Ring Cycle operas and distilled them into two magnificent three-hour performances, keeping all of the essential elements. This premiere of Part 1 — which consists of the first two operas in the Ring Cycle, “Das Rheingold” and “Die Walkure” — will feature a fabulous cast of international artists and the combined orchestras of Lexington Symphony and Symphony New Hampshire, who join together to meet the massive demands of Wagner’s “ideal” orchestra.
Featuring Alwyn Mellor, soprano Jane Eaglen, soprano Joanna Porackova, mezzo-soprano Thomas Studebaker, tenor Sarai Cole, soprano Frank Kelley, tenor Alfred Walker, bass-baritone Richard Paul Fink, bass-baritone Pawel Izdebski, bass
Conductor’s Talk with Maestro Jonathan McPhee at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets: $65/$52/$39; students $20. Call 781-523-9009 or visit www.lexingtonsymphony.org.

Free Presentation at Vilna Shul in Boston: The Irony of Victory: African American and Jewish Athletes and the Nazi Olympics
American athletes at the moment of their arrival in Berlin for the 1936 Olympics. United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, courtesy of National Archives and Records Administration, College Park
April 10. 2016 Time: 4 p.m.
Location: The Vilna Shul 18 Phillips Street Boston, MA 02114
Public Program United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
In August 1936, the world turned its attention to Nazi Germany while it hosted the Summer Olympics. To divert attention from its antisemitic agenda and plans for territorial expansion, the regime exploited the games to dazzle spectators with an image of a peaceful, tolerant Germany.
Against the backdrop of racism in America, the story of the “Nazi” Olympics becomes much more complex. In the era of Jim Crow, black and Jewish athletes were facing job discrimination, economic hardship, and social marginalization, but were sent to Berlin as competitors, representing the very nation that oppressed them.
Join us for a discussion exploring the stories and varied actions of individual athletes—from those who boycotted the games in protest to those who, like Jesse Owens, competed and won, refuting the Nazi myth of “Aryan” supremacy.
Speaker Susan Bachrach, Special Exhibitions Curator, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Co-presented with: The Vilna Shul The Vilna is a bustling cultural center located inside a nearly 100-year-old synagogue building, the last of its kind in Boston.

That is the effect of this early-blooming flower after months of cold and snow. Andrew Bunting, magnolia expert and Assistant Director of the Garden and Director of Plant Collections at the Chicago Botanic Garden, presents an in depth look at the best ornamental magnolias for the New England area. Many are highlighted in his newly released book, The Plant Lover’s Guide to Magnolias.

"SECOND SHIFT Music Series" Performance: TOM CARTER
The "Second Shift Music Series" at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation features musicians with diverse backgrounds, each in some way reflecting the innovative, exploratory American spirit that our Museum celebrates. April 21 – TOM CARTER, folk/drone/psych guitar "Tom Carter is a modern titan… one of the most thoughtful, imaginative instrumentalists working today.” –– Pitchfork "An uncanny ability to push his guitar playing to unearthly limits, while still retaining a spare simplicity that, while unusual and unorthodox, never ceases to remain completely engaging and steeped in majestic beauty." –– Tiny Mix Tapes TOM CARTER is one of America’s great guitar iconoclasts, and one of its most powerful and communicative improvisers. His solo work sculpts a rich landscape of grit and beauty. Born just south of the Mason-Dixon line Carter, the son of a newspaper man, spent his early years in various farm and mining towns in Maryland and Ohio. His influences include American pre-punk, British post-punk and Texas psychedelia. In 1990 Carter formed the groundbreaking Charalambides with Christina Carter. The Wire describes the band’s forays into folk, psych and improvisation as “truly 21st century experimental ethnic music.” - - - Doors open at 6:00pm. The performance begins at approximately 7:00pm. Admission is $20. A $30 ticket includes Beer & Wine.

MUSIC at Gallery 263 in April: Calen Perkins & Ashley Storrow Duo, Kaiti Jones
April 9 @ 8:00pm-10:00pm Gallery 263 263 Pearl Street Cambridge, MA 02139 $10
Gallery 263 is proud to host a variety of regional artists. Tonight, we welcome singer-songwriters with a connection to Maine: Calen Perkins & Ashley Storrow with Kaiti Jones.
Calen Perkins is a versatile singer-songwriter and guitarist with a hearty appetite for catchy melodies, infectious rhythms and emotive lyrics that describe his socially conscious worldview, penchant for travel and longing for connection.
Coming from a background in classical music studied on the clarinet and piano, he has spent time living in both New England and California, traveling extensively in Latin America and Europe, and working with at-risk youth at several non-profits, all of which contribute to the themes of his songs and his unique perspective as a writer. Calen regularly performs duo with fellow Mainer, Ashley Storrow.
Kaiti’s voice is simultaneously earthy and ethereal, carrying the listener a few feet off the ground on a cloud of rich, sophisticated melodies and rhythms while whispering truth and contemplating the human condition through thoughtful well-crafted lyrics. It’s not background music at all, rather it’s the rare kind that makes you want to drop everything and L-I-S-T-E-N. In person Kaiti is down-to-earth and downright endearing. If you like H.E.M., Karen Peris (The Innocence Mission) or Marketa Irglova you will love Kaiti Jones! In a sea of female singer/songwriters, Kaiti is a special treasure whose best days are yet ahead.
Blending Malian desert grooves with hard-driving rock guitar licks, Songhoy Blues has been winning audiences around the globe with its infectious energy and electric live performance. The band’s well-received debut album, Music in Exile, was produced by Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Marc-Antoine Moreau (Amadou & Mariam, K‚naan). Songhoy Blues signed with Atlantic Records—becoming the first African act the major label has signed in over 40 years and is also prominently featured in the documentary film They Will Have To Kill Us First: Malian Music In Exile.

On Saturday, April 23rd, the Boston Minstrels, who have brought over 1,500 performances to people struggling with homelessness, will celebrate its 25th anniversary, with a full band – The Soul City Band - dancing, and special guests. Open to the public, the celebration begins at 6:00 pm at the American Legion Post 440, at 295 California Street in Newton.
The Minstrels, a 100-member group of singers and musicians, play over 70 gigs a year. Their motto is “Making Music with Heart” and they transform every homeless shelter they play, bringing energy, pop and rock songs, and a feeling of community.
Brighton resident and founding member of the Minstrels, Tim McHale, on vocals and plugged-in guitar, is the consummate song leader who invites everyone to participate. Individual residents often come up to one of the eight microphones and sing lead on a song (with 10 to 15 Minstrels behind him/her, providing support and harmony.) Other residents dance in the audience and become percussionists, playing the tambourines, drum sticks, maracas, etc. that the Minstrels hand out. The group plays songs that are familiar to almost everyone, and is prepared with songbooks for those who may not be. Typical tunes include “Just My Imagination,” “Dancing in the Street,” “Give Me One Reason,”and “Imagine.”
“The Minstrels’ positive energy, combined with their approach of connecting to people through music, creates an indescribable sense of joy for our guests,” said Scottie Wait, Director of Volunteer Programs at the Pine Street Inn where the Minstrels have played for 25 years. “The Minstrels’ make them feel included, and even give many of our guests hope for a brighter tomorrow.”
For more information about the fundraiser on April 23rd and to get involved, please visit: www.bostonminstrel.org. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Jim Evans at JWE729@hotmail.com.
