Support the Arts: Four By Four Will Put On An Awesome Show

Aug 192016
 

FourByFour-textFairfield University Quick Center for the Arts hosts “FOUR by FOUR – A Tribute to the Legendary Music of the Beach Boys, Beatles, Bee Gees and Motown,” Saturday, September 10.

The performance is part of The Evening for the Arts Gala, which benefits the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the educational enrichment and professional development of young artists and early career professionals, and created in the memory of Orange resident Jamie Alaine Hulley.

“FOUR by FOUR – A Tribute to the Legendary Music of the Beach Boys, Beatles, Bee Gees and Motown” — an exhilarating musical revue of hits songs from four of the most iconic musical styles of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s — headlines the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation’s fourteenth annual Evening for the Arts Gala Benefit on Saturday, September 10, 2016, at Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

The performance begins at 7 p.m. and is preceded by an Evening for the Arts reception at 6 p.m., which includes complimentary wine and beer, light hors d’oeuvres and silent and live auctions. Tickets are available through the Quick Center Box Office: 203-254-4010, or toll-free 1-877- ARTS-396. (1-877- 278-7396). Tickets are $45 in advance or $50 at the door.

“FOUR by FOUR” hails from Las Vegas and is the brainchild of the same creative team that brought OH WHAT NIGHT! to last year’s Hulley Foundation event. This exciting and nostalgic music revue is conceived and directed by award-winning Broadway producer/director Michael Chapman, written by Motown producer George Solomon, and choreographed by Paul Holmquist.

The show features some of the most memorable songs from the California surfing scene, the British Invasion, the Disco decade, and Detroit city’s Motown – FOUR electrifying musical performances in ONE extraordinary night of entertainment!

“Everyone is sure to be singing along to the music and on their feet dancing – this music makes everyone feel good!” said Judy Primavera, co-founder and president of the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation. “There is something for everyone – it’s a real musical smorgasbord of classic hits songs from three decades.”

FOUR by FOUR thrills its audiences with their vocal perfection, great choreography, humorous banter, and music-inspired costume changes as they perform some of the most memorable songs of our time including Good Vibrations, She Love You, Staying Alive, and My Girl. The Gala also showcases the talents of young aspiring performers involved in the foundation’s programs at Square Foot Theatre in Wallingford, Amity High School’s Creative Theatre, and Broadway Method Academy in Fairfield. The Master of Ceremonies for the evening is Jared Brown, Artistic Director of Square Foot Theatre with Rob and Andrea Kennedy, Directors of Amity Creative Theatre, serving as co-hosts and auctioneers.

The Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the educational enrichment and professional development of young artists and early career professionals, was founded to celebrate the memory of the late Jamie Alaine Hulley. All proceeds from the Gala are dedicated to scholarships, educational programs and grants in the arts throughout Connecticut especially in the greater New Haven and Fairfield counties.

Since the foundation’s creation in 2002, nearly $700,000 in scholarships and grants have been awarded which have touched the lives of thousands of area youth each year. For information on the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation, visit www.jamiehulleyartsfund.org, call 203-891-8869, or e-mail: [email protected].

REVISED: Orange Elementary Schools and Amity Regional Are Among the Best In The Country

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News  Comments Off on REVISED: Orange Elementary Schools and Amity Regional Are Among the Best In The Country
Aug 172016
 

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 3.15.38 PMFor many years we’ve known that Orange has a wonderful school system and this year, nothing has changed.

Realtor.com released the good news this month in an article about how it pays to own a home in an A+ School District.

No Connecticut school landed in the Top 10 School Districts with the Highest Premium, but Orange did rank 4th in the Top 10 in-demand school districts in the country — we’re talking  Orange (Peck Place, Race Brook and Turkey Hill schools), which earned a GreatSchools Rating of 9 out of 10.

So, Orange residents, you can feel proud of your town and the fantastic education that your children will receive during these important formative years in elementary school.

See the article HERE.

REVISION: Not only that, but, as one sharp-eyed reader pointed out, Amity Region 5 (Amity Middle Schools in Orange and Bethany and Amity High School) came in 9th with a perfect score of 10.

Top Schools

This is not only good news for families, in Orange and the entire Amity District, but also for local real estate agencies.
