Various locations, including Tillotson Center at 14 Carriage Lane (next to the post office, Route 26) in Colebrook
(603) 246-8998 or (603) 237-9302

Presenting the communities of the Great North Woods with opportunities to experience the musical, cultural and performing arts.

Tuesday, April 18, 7pm - Cantrip (at the Rialto Theatre)
From the strong base of its Celtic roots, their music branches out into–and takes influences from–the music of other European cultures. Weaving together songs and tunes, both traditional and contemporary, Cantrip takes an audience on a cultural journey, putting their own spin on each style. Members include Dan Houghton (bagpipes, flute, whistles, guitar, bouzouki, vocals), Eric McDonald (guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, vocals) and on fiddle & vocals is Jon Bews. Tickets are available at the Rialto Theatre, 80 Main Street, Lancaster; Fiddleheads, 110 Main Street, Colebrook, or at the door on the night of the show.

GNWCA at the Country Club Concert Series
Diverse shows, hosted by GNWCA offer something for everyone: Canadian folk, good old rock and roll, foot-stompin' bluegrass and a St. Patrick's Day Celtic music bash. The Colebrook Country Club is located at 15 Abenaki Lane in Colebrook (237-5566).
Saturday, May 6, 7pm - Jazz and blues with Mike Goudreau Trio
Mike presents a lively mix of jazz & blues standards and original songs, accompanied by drummer Rick Erwin and bassist Bob Purrington. The trio will be digging into the great American songbook of standards, recalling songs made popular by Sinatra and Nat King Cole, as well as showcasing some cutting-edge guitar work right out the school of Eric Clapton. Get ready for a swinging night of music, something along the line of B.B. King meets Michael Bublé.

Advance tickets are available at Fiddleheads (110 Main Street in Colebrook), as well as at the door on the night of the concert. Funds raised by concerts help the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts (GNWCA) continue its ongoing mission of bringing the arts to the Great North Woods.

Following the presentation weather permitting, there will be observing through telescopes.

Fridays, March 24 & 31, 8pm - It's Friday Flicks night, with an interesting film for your enjoyment

Saturday, April 15 - Intrepid Descent
This documentary captures the classic backcountry skiing experience of Tuckerman Ravine on Mount Washington and explores the rich history of the ravine, which has been home to triumph and tragedy since the early 1920s. A present day narrative takes viewers from the daunting hike and climb up the Ravine to the exhilarating descent over the lip, while interviews with experts, meteorologists, and rare historical footage provide a broad and dynamic view of Tuckerman’s. A classic man-versus-nature story, Intrepid Descent pays homage both to the mountain and to the individuals who dare to pursue their passion

Saturday, April 22 - Legends of American Skiing: Celebrating the 73rd Anniversary of the Inferno
Join film producer Rick Moulton before the showing of "Legends of American Skiing." This lecture and film fall on the 73th Anniversary of the 1939 Inferno. The film depicts Toni Matt's legendary feat of Schussing the Headwall to win the race by more than a minute. The 1939 Inferno can be looked back upon as the last Big Mountain Downhill Race in America and certainly the last in the North East.

Saturday, April 29 - The History and Science of Hurricanes
Hurricanes have had a profound influence on the history of regions as diverse as the Caribbean and Japan. In this talk, Professor Kerry Emanuel (Lorenz Center, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) will describe how hurricanes have altered the course of history and the effects they have had on nature and on human society, leading into a discussion of just what they are, how they develop and thrive in the tropics, and how we go about forecasting them today. The effect of climate change in these fascinating storms will be the final topic of the evening. This presentation is offered in cooperation with the American Meteorological Society.

Programs are free & open to the public (not including meals). Call for more information or to make a reservation. This schedule is subject to change. All evening programs are free and open to the public.

Thursday-Saturday, April 20-22, 6:30pm - Larceny and Old Lace

Thursday, May 4, 5pm - Uprooted: Heartache and Hope in New Hampshire
Uprooted is a 30-minute documentary based on interviews collected during New Hampshire Humanities' Fences & Neighbors initiative on immigration. It tells the story of five refugees who escaped from war-torn countries to resettle in New Hampshire. The film explores what it means to be a refugee and how it feels to make a new life in a strange place, often without English language skills, family, a job, or community contacts. The film leaves us pondering questions of belonging and citizenship. What does it mean to be an American? Once a refugee, are you destined always to be a refugee? What are our responsibilities toward one another? Sara Withers introduces the film and leads a post-film discussion. Contact: Pam Laflamme, (603) 752-8587

Performance tickets can be purchased ahead of time at the Gorham Town Hall and online at the website, or at the door (unless otherwise noted). Medallion Opera House is handicapped accessible.

North Country Chorus Spring Concerts
Saturday, May 6, 7:30pm
Wells River Congregational Church, Wells River, VT

North Country Chorus presents two performances of Felix Mendelssohn's popular oratorio "Elijah" (sung in English). The title role of Elijah will be sung by baritone Lucas Weiss. Singers will be accompanied by organ, piano and timpani. "Elijah" depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet taken from I Kings and II Kings of the Old Testament. Although composed in German, it premiered in 1846 at the Birmingham Festival, England, in an English version conducted by the composer – and was an instant audience success. Mendelssohn loved the Baroque music of Bach and Handel and modeled his oratorio after them, while incorporating the lyricism and orchestral color of the Romantic era.

Tickets are available in advance from www.catamountarts.org or at the door. Visit the website for more details on the Chorus and its activities.

Also performing the Spring Concert on Sunday, May 7, 3pm at the United Community Church - South Building, St. Johnsbury, VT

North Country Chorus Spring Concerts
Sunday, May 7, 3pm
United Community Church - South Building, St. Johnsbury, VT

North Country Chorus presents two performances of Felix Mendelssohn's popular oratorio "Elijah" (sung in English). The title role of Elijah will be sung by baritone Lucas Weiss. Singers will be accompanied by organ, piano and timpani. "Elijah" depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet taken from I Kings and II Kings of the Old Testament. Although composed in German, it premiered in 1846 at the Birmingham Festival, England, in an English version conducted by the composer – and was an instant audience success. Mendelssohn loved the Baroque music of Bach and Handel and modeled his oratorio after them, while incorporating the lyricism and orchestral color of the Romantic era.

Tickets are available in advance from www.catamountarts.org or at the door. Visit the website for more details on the Chorus and its activities.

Also performing the Spring Concert on Saturday, May 6, 7:30pm at the Wells River Congregational Church, Wells River, VT
