Healing workshop for writers

Healing workshop for writers


Who is William Snyder

Part of being a good photographer is capturing more than just the mere image. It also transcends the visual to include its sound and motion and its soul.


THEATER | "The Sound of Music"

One of the most successful musicals ever — not to mention one of the most iconic films — Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The Sound of Music" has been revived for a new production by Tony Award-winning director Jack O'Brien, bringing Maria and the von Trapp family back to life. This tour features Charlotte Maltby as Maria, Ben Davis as Georg von Trapp, and a talented cast of actors performing those quintessential songs — such as "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi," and "Edelweiss" — that have made the show and its sweet story such a hit.

RECREATION | Native American Winter Games and Sports

The Seneca people have always embraced the winter months, and with Ganondagan's Native American Winter Games and Sports day, attendees can check out people's traditional indoor activities and outdoor sports. In Ganondagan, a historic site for the Seneca people, visitors can race in Snow Boats (wooden boats to ride down snowy channels) or get a glimpse at the intensity of dog sledding up close.

ART | "Benjamin Entner: Drawings"

Although Rochester-area artist Benjamin Entner is formally trained in sculpture, his artistic practice doesn't follow convention: Entner's art manifests in video, sound, installation, performance, woodworking, drawing, painting, and sewing. He also creates massive "soft sculptures," which are large-scale inflatable forms that reference portraiture and still life, exploring the boundaries between two- and three-dimensional representations of the world.

Theater review: Screen Plays' 'The Cat's Meow'

Hollywood has plenty of glittering folklore and tabloid-worthy stories that provide a brief glimpse into the dramatic past of the elite. Few, though, maintain the mystery of one particular November weekend in 1924.


Artist presents a personal connection to hard history

Like much of Europe, Corsicans took part in the immigration to the so-called "new world" in search of economic opportunities. Spain's Cedula de Gracias of 1815 encouraged Spaniards and other Europeans to settle and populate the colonies of Cuba and Puerto Rico.


THEATER | Bronze Collective Theatre Fest

The Bronze Collective annually brings together local performers and theater groups of color at MuCCC for a week of drama, dance, storytelling, comedy, and music. It returns for its third festival next week, running from Monday, February 20, to Sunday, February 26, with new work by local writers, and a classic play by the great James Baldwin, exploring black identity, roles in society, civil rights, the history of black women, and the expressive power of dance and music.
