Boston June Music Theater Events: Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston Kicks Off Summer Season With: CAROUSEL
Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston will open its 48th consecutive summer season with Rodgers and Hammerstein’s masterpiece CAROUSEL from June 9-19, 2016. Carousel, the powerful love story between an innocent millworker and a swaggering carnival barker will run for eight performances at the Robinson Theatre (617 Lexington St. Waltham, MA, 02452). Directed and Choreographed by Rachel Bertone, CAROUSEL will star Boston’s own Jennifer Ellis (My Fair Lady, The Most Happy Fella) as Julie Jordan and Broadway star Ciarán Sheehan (Les Misérables, Phantom) as Billy Bigelow. Reagle’s 48th Summer Season will also include Thoroughly Modern Millie (July 7-17), the rollicking 1920’s musical about a small-town girl who moves to New York to lead a fresh new life and the fabulous Gershwin musical comedy Crazy For You (August 4-14), a high energy production set in the 1930s about a playboy who just wants to dance.
Single adult tickets for each production in Reagle’s 48th Summer Season are $35-$63; discounts apply for seniors, students and groups of 10 or more. Tickets can be purchased at www.reaglemusictheatre.com, by calling 781-891-5600, or at the theater box office. Season subscribers can save 20% on each show!

8th International Nanotoxicology Congress - Nanotox2016
The 8th International Nanotoxicology Congress will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, on June 1 – 4, 2016. This conference is one in a continuing series of international meetings that are broadly focused on nanotoxicology from a highly interdisciplinary perspective.
Since the ‘nanotech boom’, its global market has grown in value to tens of billions of dollars. While new nanomaterial-enabled products are created each day, there are gaps in our understanding of the hazards that these materials might pose to the health of the individuals that make, formulate, use, and dispose of them as well as to the health of the environment over the intended product life cycle. Furthermore, very little is known about real-life exposures to these materials. Thus, the overall safety assessment for this material class is greatly impaired for all but a few specific cases.
The objective of the 2016 conference is to bring together scientists from academia, industry, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations to present current research findings, focus their respective talents and expertise, and initiate new collaborations in an effort to ensure the safe implementation of nanotechnology. The scientific program will include plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, poster sessions, and dedicated time for presentations by young scientists. In addition, there will be a hands-on workshop on the use of in vivo and in vitro nanoparticle dosimetry modeling platforms.
If your company intersects with the nanotechnology community and you wish to discuss exhibitor or sponsor packages, please contact the conference organizers via email.
On behalf of the local organizing committee and the international advisory board, we look forward to welcoming you in Boston!

Yuan Jinhua: Energy of Life
We request the pleasure of your company to meet the renowned artist Professor Yuan Jinhua at the opening reception to celebrate his paintings.

Where? Mobilia Gallery 358 Huron Avenue Cambridge, MA 02138
RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-876-2109
Mobilia Gallery is pleased to announce and introduce the first USA solo exhibit of contemporary Chinese ink paintings created by one of China’s leading visual artists, Yuan Jinhua. The unique Mobilia Feature Exhibition will be on view May 12 through June 15, 2016.
Born in 1964 in China’s famous city of Hangzhou (home to West Lake, a treasured site), Professor Yuan Jinhua has garnered coveted recognition for his highly unusual contemporary works that provide new interpretations of China’s “landscape culture.” The collection of small and large paintings on specially made papers marry ancient Chinese ink techniques with delicate, yet strong, brush and color power.
A master of capturing the vitality and visual power of modern Chinese ink painting, Professor Yuan uses refined inks, gold leaf, and Tibetan pigments, which are made from earth substances, precious and semi-precious gemstones. Dramatic blue is made from azurite or lapis lazuli, exquisite Hangzhou green from malachite, intense red from cinnabar, yellow ochre from limonite. Each of these minerals is painstakingly hand ground to a fine powder, sometimes soaked and rubbed with the fingers to achieve a silky texture. Oftentimes compounds are heated to create different shades and hues to produce bold forms and figures.
“The ‘Embrace Series’ by Yuan Jinhua constructs lighthearted landscapes of contemporary daily life in a style that at once fully elevates the elements of Chinese ink and wash painting, while bidding farewell to the historical tradition with sic humor.” Xiaoming Zhao, highly regarded collector, President of the International Publishing House for China’s Culture, and current Chairman of the Board of USA Asian Cultural Academy
Yuan currently teaches traditional Chinese painting at the China Academy of Art in Zhejiang and is the director of the portrait studio at the Traditional Chinese Painting Institute, Zhejiang Art Museum.

Wed, Jun 15 2016, 7:00PM Boston, Massachusetts Agganis Arena
On June 12, the Arnold Arboretum and Kadence Arts will host the Boston premiere of Inuksuit —a 75minute work for percussion ensemble that is designed to heighten awareness of the sights and sounds that surround us every day. Composed by John Luther Adams and performed in major cities around the globe, the piece will feature 50 New England-based percussionists, dispersed throughout the conifer collection of the Arnold Arboretum. Inuksuit is deeply influenced by John Luther Adams’ belief that “music can contribute to the awakening of our ecological understanding. By deepening our awareness of our connections to the earth, music can provide a sounding model for the renewal of human consciousness and culture.”
The Arnold Arboretum is opening its gates to Kadence Arts for this production. Kadence Arts, founded by Boston-based percussionist and entrepreneur Maria Finkelmeier, is a nonprofit dedicated to uniting the community by providing new experiences to support and encourage an appreciation of how music enriches our lives. Kadence Arts has recruited an ensemble of professionals and students that will perform Inuksuit using conch shells, gongs, maracas, air horns, drums, sirens, cymbals, and glockenspiels, nestled among the trees of the conifer collection. Attendees will be encouraged to roam throughout the performance area, allowing for an individualized and personal listening experience.
Free, but we welcome your support in making this performance possible https://my.arboretum.harvard.edu/Info.aspx?DayPlanner=1517&DayPlannerDate=6%2f12%2f2016
