Saturday the 9th
noon-2pm – one-on-one Private Lessons
2-4pm – Broomstick Lace Crochet is an example of a technique which makes use of a tool designed for a common everyday household task but reinterprets its use to create a lovely fabric. That resulting fabric features larger than usual loops of yarn, gathered into groups and then embellished with several single (or other) crochet stitches. One particular distinction of this among most other crochet techniques, Broomstick Lace Crochet allows one to easily create ‘drape’ in the fabric, also showcasing and leaving visible long strands of the yarn. It is, therefore, an excellent stitch choice for supple blankets and flowing garments. Join us as we learn the basics of this lovely technique. PreReq: know how to make a chain and single crochet stitch. Contact Knitty City re supplies.

Saturday the 16th
noon-2pm – one-on-one Private Lessons
 2-5pm – Learn to Knit a Triangular Lace Shawl
Using the elegant technique of yarn-over increases paired with decreases, learn to knit lace in a triangular shape.  The class begins with how to make a garter stitch tab as the cast-on at the nape of the neck and covers the skills (including how to incorporate beads) needed to work down to the shaping of the bound-off edge. Practice chart reading by working on a stitch pattern which could be incorporated into the shaping of your triangular shawl. PreReq: know how to cast on, knit, purl, bind off Contact Knitty City re supplies.

ALL ABOUT EVE… cavorting in the jardin du classical cabaret

Fasten your Fig Leaves, it’s going to be a Bumpy Ride!
Classical and cabaret crossover artist Lisa Daehlin, joined by pianist Richard Pearson Thomas, leads us on a romp through the infamous foliage of Eden to parts hither and yon. Singing and sinewing of things primal, very, very old (yet somehow new again) the evening weaves together music, poetry, commentary, and jokes about that First Lady of them all… Eve! whose biblical sense (good/bad/other) has kept her the topic of conversation from ancient ogling to modern-day googling. Compositions by many, including Fauré, Porter, de Kenessey, Weill, and some guy in a beard yakking away with a hammer, chisel, and some stone tablets.

LISA DAEHLIN has performed numerous operatic roles including Amelia (Un Ballo in Maschera), Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte), Tatiana (Eugene Onegin), Angelica (Suor Angelica), Madame Lidoine (Dialogues of the Carmelites), First Lady (Magic Flute) and the High Priestess (Aida). Maestro Richard Woitach cast her to sing the role of Wellgunde (Das Rhinegold), and as his soprano in the concert Woitach and Friends 3-1/2.

In New York City, she is a frequent performer at The Players Club. Most recent programs include December Songs and Transcending Exotic: Embracing Familiar. Her concert repertoire has focused extensively on Norwegian, French and American Chanson, Cabaret and Art Song. She produced and directed OperaKnit Cabaret at Performance Space 122 (PS122, NYC) with Flash Rosenberg and Louis Menendez.

Though known for her rendition of “I’m a Stranger Here Myself,” Lisa is no stranger to the cabaret stage, having performed incarnations of her show From Classical to Cabaret: The songs of Poulenc, Porter, Weill and Satie in venues as varied as the underground club to the concert hall. She has sung Dorothy Parker songs in the Algonquin’s Oak Room. She has performed the music of Stefania de Kenessey at City Center and with the Annabella Gonzalez Dance Theater at Lincoln Center. The recording project for that company is now used in the performance repertoire.

Her one-woman show Twisted Stitch: Songs of Love and Knitting was featured in the Classical to Jazz festival at Cornelia Street Café (NYC), weaving together songs of Edvard Grieg, Franz Schubert, Maury Yeston and a world premier cycle of songs by Stefania de Kenesey.

As an invited Resident Artist at a Bolzano music festival, she gave several concerts in that enchanting Italian city. Her German debut included concerts at the castles of Wolfshagen and Ludwigslust performing music by Verdi, Weill and Wolf.

Recently awarded a Masters Degree in Music and Music Education from the Teachers College of Columbia University, Lisa operates a private voice studio in New York City.

RICHARD PEARSON THOMAS, composer and pianist, has had works performed by the Boston Pops, Covent Garden Festival, Houston Grand Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Portland Opera, Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, Banff Centre, Skylight Opera Theatre, and Riverside Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir. His songs have been sung in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Wigmore Hall, Joe’s Pub, and before the U.S. Congress. His work Race for the Sky, which was commissioned as a commemoration of the events of 9/11, has been performed by the Westchester Philharmonic Orchestra and in recitals nationwide.

Mr. Thomas’s commissioned opera, A Wake or a Wedding, was premiered by the California State University at Fullerton Opera Theatre. His musical Parallel Lives was produced Off-Off Broadway by the Riverside Opera Ensemble. His musical Golden Gate, winner of the Michael Stewart Foundation Award, was presented in concert version by the Monmouth Civic Chorus. He is a frequent collaborator with The Mirror Visions Ensemble in the United States and Europe.

Mr. Thomas is on faculty at Teachers College/Columbia University and has taught at Yale and the University of Central Florida. His work with children as composer-in-residence of the Gold Opera Project was featured on CBS’ “The Early Show,” and singled out for praise by President Clinton.

Additionally, Mr. Thomas concertizes with singers worldwide. He is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Southern California, and is a native of Montana.
