ROD STEWART AND SANTANA: THE VOICE, THE GUITAR, THE SONGS

May 30, 2014 7:30pm

Charlottesville
AEG Live announced today that Rod Stewart and Santana, two of music’s most influential hit makers and dynamic live performers, have added another show to their upcoming North American tour this summer in Charlottesville, VA on Friday, May 30 at John Paul Jones Arena.

Kicking-off May 23 in Albany, NY, the tour unites two musical trailblazers who have helped redefine the sound of popular music for the last five decades through their combined love of rock, soul, world rhythms, funk, jazz and blues. Both Stewart and Santana are known for their high-energy, hit-packed live concerts -- making the combination an incomparable experience for all music fans.

Tickets for Charlottesville go on sale Friday, April 11 at 10AM at www.ticketmaster.com, the John Paul Jones Arena box office or by calling 1-888-JPJ-TIXS. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, April 8th at 10AM (EDT) through Thursday, April 10th at 10PM (EDT).

With his singular voice, narrative songwriting and passionate live performances, Rod Stewart has built one of the most successful and enduring music careers of all time. In a career spanning more than five decades, he has amassed sales of more than 150 million albums worldwide and has countless chart-topping hits and industry accolades - including two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2007, he was bestowed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen of England. In May 2013, Stewart released Time, his first rock album in a dozen years, on Capitol Records. The album features 11 original tracks and marks Rod’s return to songwriting after nearly two decades. Time entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 1, setting a new British record for the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist -- and in the US, it marked Stewart’s highest-charting album of original material since 1979. In addition to touring, Stewart headlines one of Las Vegas’ most critically and commercially successful residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY ® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY ® Awards. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”). He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), and received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has also been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Celebrating the chart debut of Guitar Heaven (Arista) in 2010, Santana joined the ranks of the Rolling Stones as the only musical act in chart history to score at least one Top 10 album in every decade beginning with the 1960s. He is also currently headlining at a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. In 2013, Carlos Santana was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award. Santana’s new album CORAZÓN (RCA/Sony Latin Iberia) due out May 6, 2014 is a collaborative effort with the biggest names in Latin music.

Historic Garden Week in Albemarle-Charlottesville

Apr 27, 2014 Various

Charlottesville and Keene area
The rich cultural heritage of the Jefferson era is reflected in this year’s local HGW tour. Each of the three properties is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is part of the recently designated Southern Albemarle Rural Historic District. Several reflect the influence of Thomas Jefferson’s classical architectural ideals and much of the land is still held in large farms as it has been since the 18th century. Visitors tour the elegant private homes of Redlands, c. 1798 and Esmont, c. 1816. Built on land patented in 1730 to the Carter family, Redlands has been the home to the Carters since the house's completion in in 1798. At Esmont, William B. Phillips, a brick mason who worked on the University of Virginia under Jefferson, is believed responsible for the fine Flemish bond brickwork that distinguishes the house. Bellair Farm highlights its CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, offering examples of how sustainable strategies have preserved this historic farm. Bellair has been continuously farmed for over two centuries. Box lunches, by advance reservation only, may be picked up in the former dairy barn.
In addition to the Southern Albemarle properties, Christ Episcopal Church Glendower will be open courtesy of parish volunteers. Morven Estate gardens and house will be open on Saturday, April 26. The University of Virginia is included on Tuesday, April 29 with tours of the West Lawn Pavilion houses and gardens, Carr’s Hill, Morea Garden and Arboretum and the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library.

This is a driving tour. Properties are not handicapped accessible, due to multiple staircases and uneven walkways. The tour cannot accommodate buses due to parking access and narrow country roads. Advance Tickets: $35; Day of the tour: $40. Morven requires a separate ticket, Advance Ticket: $15; Day of the Tour: $20.

Proust Talk and Dinner

May 8, 2014 Not Given

Tempo, 117 5th St SE, Charlottesville, VA 22902
The Alliance Française, a 501(c) non-profit organization, is pleased to announce a talk on Thursday, May 8, 2014, by James A. W. Heffernan on the hostesses of Marcel Proust’s seminal novel À La Recherche du Temps Perdu (In Search of Lost Time). The talk at Tempo restaurant on the Downtown Mall will be followed by a delicious dinner, the exquisite Winter 2014 Prix Fixe menu, prepared by Executive Chef Brice Cunningham. Proust’s famous madeleine will be served for dessert, of course!

Professor Heffernan is the author of six books on English Romantic poetry and the relations between literature and visual art. He is a Professor of English Emeritus at Dartmouth College and also the founding editor of Review 19, which has so far reviewed over 300 books on English and American literature of the nineteenth century.

Proust’s In Search of Lost Time is a novel that repeatedly exposes the hostility lurking within what Heffernon calls “the heart of our friendly or purely social relations.” While moments of genuine communion sometimes occur between host and guest, they soon are undermined by suspicion, jealousy, resentment, and even anti-Semitism that virally invade and infect the social worlds of this novel.

Reservations for the 6:00 p.m. talk and dinner, priced at $35, must be done in advance before May 2nd to plan for the event: Please visit www.afcville.org for more details and to RSVP.

The Alliance Française of Charlottesville is one of a global network of over 1000 education institutions, providing an important source of cultural enrichment and language education worldwide. For more information, please visit www.afcville.org.

Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate & Princess Adventure

May 11, 2014 1pm-4pm

Charlottesville
Feld Entertainment, Inc., producers of Disney On Ice and Disney Live!, is taking top performing cable TV series for preschoolers to the stage in Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate and Princess Adventure. Featuring characters from the smash hits Sofia the First and Jake and the Never Land Pirates, this brand new production launched a 90-city national tour in July 2013. Tickets for the CHARLOTTESVILLE performances at JOHN PAUL JONES ARENA, MAY 11th, 2014, are on sale March 10th.
“The Feld Entertainment mission of providing quality live entertainment experiences that the entire family enjoys starts with Disney Live! because it is often a young fan’s first theatrical experience,” said producer Alana Feld. “Children everywhere are falling in love with Sofia and Jake, and we are thrilled to bring these popular Disney Junior characters to the stage for the first time ever."
In this original storyline, Mickey and Minnie lead the audience on an exciting adventure that will have families rooting for their favorite pirate Jake and Disney's first little girl princess Sofia. Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate and Princess Adventure begins with a special interactive pre-show featuring the loveable 6-year-old doctor to toys and stuffed animals, Doc McStuffins. Children and their parents will sing “The Check-Up Song” along with Doc as she provides tender love and care.
Audiences will then embark on a journey to the magical world of Enchancia, where Sofia, her step-siblings Amber and James, and the entire kingdom are preparing for the annual friendship festival. Sofia has the honor of delivering the perfect gift to her royal subjects at the celebration, and the one-and-only Cinderella visits the castle to help Sofia in her mission to find just the right present.
The excitement continues when families cast away to Never Land where Jake and his Yo Ho pirate friends Izzy and Cubby are in a race against time to locate a mysterious treasure-filled volcano. Danger, thrills and adventure lurk around every turn when our swashbuckling friends battle Captain Hook for the ultimate prize. Peter Pan makes a special appearance, aiding the team in their heroic quest, and with the help of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust, Jake and his crew fly above the stage in their journey.
In 2012, “Doc McStuffins” and “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” ranked as cable TV’s Top 2 series for all kids ages 2-5, reaching 46.7 million and 36.5 million unique total viewers, respectively, throughout the year. Launching at the top 2013, “Sofia the First” is cable TV’s #1 series year to date among Kids 2-5 and Girls 2-5, and is the #1 preschool cable TV series in Total Viewers and Women 18-49. In fact, the November 18, 2012 premiere of its introductory TV movie, “Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess” became the #1 cable TV telecast ever in Kids 2-5, and #1 preschool cable TV telecast of all time in Total Viewers (8.2 million) and Women 18-49.

Summer Jefferson Symposium 2014

Jun 19, 2014 Not Given

University of Virginia
None of the Founding Fathers loom larger in our national memory or in our modern discourse than the enigmatic Thomas Jefferson. For more than two centuries, historians, politicians, ministers, and other citizens have sought to understand the sage of Monticello and what it was that Thomas Jefferson was thinking as he looked down from his mountaintop upon a new nation that he had helped to create. The Summer Jefferson Symposium seeks to focus on different aspects of Jefferson’s life and will explore the answers to these same historic questions.

Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) is dedicated to improving the lives of teens, parents, and professionals. At iBme, we teach teens proven awareness & concentration practices that have been used for thousands of years. Teens learn how to settle a busy mind; how to skillfully handle emotions and thoughts; how to direct and sustain attention; how to cultivate compassion; and how to truly listen and communicate. Through mindfulness meditation, small group discussions, and fun workshop activities, participants experience a sense of connection & safety that many have never felt before.

At our teen mindfulness retreats, we offer teens, ages 14-19, an amazing opportunity to explore their body and mind through the practices of insight meditation; qi gong and yoga; delicious organic meals; and tools to deepen their listening and speaking skills through group mindfulness exercises and workshops in creative expression. These retreats are fun and transformational for teens and staff alike.

Each of these classes is $6 per person at the door, or for your convenience you can purchase a class card for only $20, which pays for any 4 of these classes and can be used for the Argentine Tango classes that are held on Thursdays. This class card has no expiration date.

Also for those people who are interested in practicing what they’ve learned or just for those who would like to become more efficient dancers in social settings, Edwin and Amberlyn will be offering an Open Dance Practica every Friday right after the Nightclub Salsa classes. The Practica will be held from 9-11 p.m. at Zabor Dance. The participants of the classes are welcome to stay for the Practica for free. However, if you don’t take the classes, but would like to come to the Practica, the cost will be $3 per person at the door.

For these classes and the Open Dance Practica, it is required that the participants either wear ballroom, jazz, character, tango, or ballet shoes, or bring a pair of old socks that can be worn over your normal shoes. Please do not wear street shoes, sneakers or slip-on sandals for they will not be allowed on the dance floor (even if they have never been used before). If you wear shoes that do not fit the requirements, we will ask you to take your shoes off.

In order for us to provide better service to you, we strongly suggest that you arrive at least five minutes prior to your class to give yourself enough time to sign-up and prepare. In previous classes we have experienced a large number of participants. So, to avoid confusion, you MUST sign-up before taking the class.
