by BWW News Desk - Apr 28, 2016

Orange County, Calif.—April 27, 2016—The young and talented musicians of Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble (PSYWE), grades 8-12, conclude their season with a heavenly array of moving and arresting music. The program, “Heaven and Earth,” features works that are both naturally and divinely inspired—from the “lightning in a bottle” of John Mackey's 2015 “Lightning Field,” to the natural sounds of rain in Whitacre's “Cloudburst,” to Grainger's impressions of a typical day in Australia in “Colonial Song,” and the spiritual underpinnings of Maslanka's “Give Us This Day.” Also, for the first time in PSYWE history, the ensemble performs a new composition by one of its own members, trumpeter Kai Quizon, who wrote “Impulse” over his summer break after working with Symphony composer-in-residence Narong Prangcharoen. These talented brass, woodwind and percussion musicians come together to perform this moving selection of music on Sunday, May 22, at 1 p.m., in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.

Creating A Writing Life Program Celebrates 10 YearsCreating A Writing Life Program Celebrates 10 Years
by BWW News Desk - Apr 27, 2016

Creating A Writing Life programs have been part of Connecticut's shoreline community since 2007 when writer Patricia Ann Chaffee first offered a series through Stonington Adult Education. Since then Creating A Writing life programs have been offered in the form of library workshops, weekly writing groups, presentations to small business organizations, but mostly as retreats for emerging writers. This year she celebrates 10 years of inspiring and empowering writers to tap into their own unique literary gifts. 'Everyone knows someone who wants to be a writer,' said Chaffee. 'But it's those folks who are really passionate about the craft that find their way to these retreats. The writers that gather together are not always experienced and not always published, although some are, but they are honoring that passion in taking this step to nurture their writing life, and that's what's so exciting.' In past years, it had evolved into an annual event that filled up fast, but this year, several different writing events are being offered to celebrate the anniversary of Creating A Writing Life. Writers working in all genres who are interested in taking their writing to the next level attend the events that are always in an extraordinary location and usually on or near Long Island Sound. The gathering creates an opportunity to network with other writers, learn ways to overcome the challenges of the writing life, and of course a chance to write in a small group setting that is both encouraging and inspiring. Creating a Writing Life programs are facilitated by Old Saybrook resident Patricia Ann Chaffee, a freelance writer and former journalist and columnist. During each event there is a guest speaker from the literary world who shares their expertise and story. Special guest speaker for the upcoming retreat at Mercy By the Sea in Madison, will be award winning poet and novelist, Leslie M. Browning. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Independent Book Publishers Association, is partner at Hiraeth Press; Co-Founder of Written River: An Anthology of Eco-Poetics, as well as Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Wayfarer. Browning opened Homebound Publications in 2011, publishing the work of emerging writers as well as Gunilla Norris, Ann Nyberg and others. In 2015 she established Owl House Books as an imprint of Homebound Publications located in Pawcatuck, devoted to children's Literature. The all-inclusive retreat is being held Saturday, June 18 from 9:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. and the cost is $145. Registration deadline is June 4th. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Stroke Association. A second retreat, is planned for July 30. For more information or to register for the Creating a Writing Life Retreat, visit www.CreatingAWritingLife.com or call (860) 536-0051. (more...)
