Pianist Ana Glig, in Concert

Sunday April 28, at 3pm. Ana Glig (aka Gligvashvili) is an award-winning concert pianist praised for her ability to “capture hearts” by Musical America. A recipient of Alfred Cortot’s prize for the best interpretation of romantic music, Glig has performed internationally in Europe and the United States in solo and chamber settings. As an orchestra soloist, Glig has debuted with Georgia and Israeli symphonic orchestras.  In the review of her album ‘Reminiscences’ Fanfare Magazine recognized Glig’s playing for its “ever sensitivity” and “ability to finely capture some of Georgia’s haunting, elusive film melodies ..as well as anyone on disc.” A native of Georgia, Glig’s first musical impressions trace back to her early childhood and Georgian polyphonic singing. Glig’s passion to combine music with art has led her to the series of concert-projects interconnecting various piano and art works within their historical context.  Glig holds a Masters degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from Mannes School of Music and New York University (NYU Steinhardt). Currently Glig lives on Cape Cod, Massachusetts where she performs, teaches and collaborates with other musicians. To connect Ana Glig visit:  www.facebook.com/PianistAG.

Salvador Dalí Inspired Dinner with Chef Joe Cizynski

Thursday, May 2, from 6-8pm. In honor of ArtWeek Massachusetts and The Art of Food, we will have an evening of adventurous eating using Salvador Dali’s' recipes from his Les Dinners de Gala. Most of the recipes were by chefs of cuisine classique like Maxim’s Lasserre, La Tour de Argent and Le Train Bleu.  We will dine on crayfish, sea bass, quail, roast side of beef and assorted fruit desserts. We'll put a pitcher of his "Casanova Cocktail" on the table to get the "Gala" going!! “When I was six years old,” Salvador Dalí (May 11, 1904–January 23, 1989) once professed, “I wanted to be a cook.” But it wasn’t until his late sixties that he channeled his childhood fantasy into Les Diners de Gala -a lavishly illustrated cookbook, originally published in 1973 and featuring Dalí’s intensely erotic etchings and paintings. The twelve chapters each cover a specific class of dishes- from exotic courses to fish and shellfish to vegetables-rendered with a surrealist twist both gastronomically and aesthetically, but nowhere more so than in the tenth chapter, dedicated to aphrodisiacs. Prefacing the recipes is Dalí’s unambiguous cautionary disclaimer, penned at the dawn of the first major dieting era of popular culture: "We would like to state clearly that, beginning with the very first recipes, Les Diners de Gala, with its precepts and its illustrations, is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of taste. Don’t look for dietetic formulas here. We intend to ignore those charts and tables in which chemistry takes the place of gastronomy. If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you." $50 per person. To register, visit www.cultural-center.org or call 508-394-7100. Cultural Center of Cape Cod, 307 Old Main St., South Yarmouth.

Becoming a Fearless Painter: Don’t Be So Literal with Odin Smith

May’s Fearless Painter will be discovering how to allow the flow of the acrylic paint to direct the work, not necessarily the brush. Students will be trying new ways to paint more organic and engaging subjects using such things as applications of water from a spray bottle and alcohol to create new and unique formations of paint, as well as tools made from found or collected objects like sticks, cardboard, bubble wrap etc. They will be applying their techniques to make more creative, enchanting and unusual paintings. Students may bring in any interesting found objects to use as unexpected tools, a spray bottle and any size canvases they feel most comfortable working in, and any acrylic supplies  normally used.  $140 per person.  To register, visit www.cultural-center.org or call 508-394-7100.  Cultural Center of Cape Cod, 307 Old Main St., South Yarmouth.

Birds of a Feather with Chef Joe Cizynski
Monday, May 13, from 6-8pm. The term is derived from the proverb "birds of a feather flock together". The (idiomatic) phrase "birds of a feather" meaning "people having similar characters, backgrounds, interests, or beliefs". In old poetic English, "birds of a feather" means birds which have the same kind of feathers, so the proverb refers to the fact that birds congregate with birds of their own species. For us tonight it just means we'll be eating some birds! But definitely not "Eating Crow!" We will dine on quail stuffed with prunes and foie gras, tea smoked goose breast salad, guinea hen coq au vin and finish with fresh cheeses. We will sip bubbles, Chardonnay and Cotes du Rhone. $65 per person. For reservations, visit www.cultural-center.org or call 508-394-7100. The Cultural Center of Cape Cod, 307 Old Main St., South Yarmouth.

The Irish Free State / 26 Counties 1922-1937 with Sean Murphy
Four Wednesdays, beginning May 15, from 6-7pm.  No class on 5/29.  The Irish Free State (Saorstát Éireann: 6 December 1922 - 29 December 1937) was a state established in 1922 under the Anglo-Irish Treaty of December 1921 that ended the three-year Irish War of Independence. The Free State was established as a Dominion of the British Commonwealth of Nations. It comprised 26 of the 32 counties of Ireland. Northern Ireland, which comprised the remaining six counties, exercised its right under the Treaty to opt out of the new state. Pro-Treaty members, who formed Cumann na nGaedheal in 1923, held an effective majority in the Dáil from 1922 to 1927, and ruled as a minority government until 1932. In 1931, with the passage of the Statute of Westminster, the Parliament of the United Kingdom relinquished its remaining authority to legislate for the Free State and other dominions. This had the effect of making the dominions fully sovereign states. The Free State became the first internationally recognized independent Irish state. In 1926 Sinn Féin president, deValera, resigned from Sinn Féin and founded Fianna Fáil. Fianna Fáil entered the Dáil following the 1927 general election and entered government after the Irish general election in 1932, when it became the largest party. De Valera abolished the Oath of Allegiance and embarked on an economic war with the UK. His new constitution was passed by a referendum in July of 1937. All students will receive a PowerPoint presentation for each class. $75/$70 members. To register, visit www.cultural-center.org or call 508-394-7100.
