The Earlville Opera House is pleased to host a fundraiser featuring local favorites Jubilation! Women’s Vocal Ensemble Friday August 18 at 7 PM.

The event will serve as a fundraiser for the historic Earlville Opera House. Community events like this one allow the Earlville Opera House to continue bringing world-quality live musical performances and art installations to central New York, and facilitates the art education workshops and classes hosted for adults and children of all ages.

Jubilation! Women’s Vocal Ensemble was started in 2007 with nine members. Since that time, the group has doubled in size and become a valuable part of the Hamilton community.  Members range in both age and background. Though Jubilation! is based in Hamilton, members come from as far as Brookfield and Rome to participate.  One of the goals of the ensemble is to bring a variety of different music to each performance; some music is intended to uplift the audience, and some music shares a deep-rooted, powerful message.    It is also important to them to create an environment of friendship and support.

One of the things that is unique about Jubilation! is their goal of giving back.  After each concert, a portion of the proceeds are given to an elected organization that they feel is deserving.   Some of these are close to home, such as Vera House and HCS Friends of Music.  Others are international, including Smile Train and, most recently, Geneva Call.  Anyone interested in joining Jubilation! for future seasons can contact Karen Rains at karen.rains1@gmail.com.

Jubilation! Women’s Vocal Ensemble will perform at the Earlville Opera House August 18 at 7 PM. Tickets are $12 general, $10 members, and $6 students/youth. Please note that this show will not offer reserved seating, and is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, with doors opening at 6:30 PM.

Women of Folk for IG

An incredible family legacy comes together when the Earlville Opera House presents Women of Folk, featuring Sloan Wainwright, Lucy Wainwright Roche, and Suzzy Roche, July 15th at 8 PM, sponsored by Preferred Mutual.

Suzzy Roche is a founding member of the singing group The Roches. In addition to recording numerous albums, Roche has written two books, and taught performance at NYU graduate and undergraduate schools and at Princeton University in the Atelier Program. Singer/songwriter Lucy Wainwright Roche, daughter of Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche and half-sister of Rufus and Martha Wainwright, was born and raised in New York City. Wainwright Roche spent her formative years traveling with and amongst her large musical family. In 2005 and 2006, she joined brother Rufus on tour to sing backup, and her first, full-length recording, Lucy, arrived in 2010. The younger sister of witty singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III, Sloan Wainwright has taken her own path in building a musical career. With a multi-octave voice and an ability to combine sensitive original songs with unique renditions of songs by Sly and the Family Stone, the Grateful Dead and the Beatles, Wainwright has become one of contemporary folk music’s most promising new artists.

Women of Folk will perform at the Earlville Opera House July 15 at 8 PM. Tickets are $30 general, $25 members, and $15 students/youth, with premiums applying in the first 4 rows. Doors open at 7:30 PM. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com.  The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville, NY.

Arts in the Park 2017

The Arts in the Park Series returns for another season of talented musicians, ranging from jazz gems to folk roots, Thursdays on the Hamilton Village Green, free and open to the community. All performances begin at 7 PM.

This year’s series, Siren Songs, celebrates the arts and women’s contributions to the arts, as well their voices in our communities, marking the centennial of women’s suffrage in New York State, three years ahead of the rest of our nation. After a century of progress and change, the impact and power of women’s voices in our communities remain a vital contribution to our cultural experience. The five concerts are planned for Thursday evenings at 7 PM starting 7/13 and ending 8/10.

Kicking off the series July 13th is SAMMY-award winner and local favorite Lauren Mettler. A singer-songwriter born and raised in CNY Mettler boasts a practice of delving into many different genres and cultures for insight and nuance. Her writing is evocative, empathetic, & gently explorative, inviting her audience to face their own vulnerabilities & others’ as well.

Mettler is followed by Opus Black, July 20th. The Opus Black String Quartet is an alternative string ensemble with a penchant for the unorthodox. Built on a common foundation of classical training, their backgrounds are as diverse as their repertoire. Their mission is to educate, inspire creativity and share their love of music through alternative performance.

Next up is the dazzling Amanda Rogers on July 27th. Often compared to Tom Waits for her literary lyrics and Carole King for her pop sensibility, CNY-native Rogers has defined her musical career as an original, independent, touring, recording artist. Rogers can boast 9 albums and multiple tours, as well as song placements on networks such as the Discovery Channel and MTV.

Carolyn Kelly Blues Band continues the series August 3rd. A natural vocal talent, Kelly’s emotive deliveries carry an audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions form lust to scorn and everywhere in between. With a natural stage presence, Kelly embraces and involves the audience, on a very personal level, at every one of her performances.

Finally, Sheralyn Jeanne concludes the series August 10th. Born and raised in Syracuse, NY, Sheralyn has picked up many styles and techniques from watching and involving herself in local bands, live shows, choirs, churches, schools, and more. After her 2016 award-winning album with Syracuse band Early Bird Trio, Wellman was quickly on her way to a solo career where she would begin to explore a new approach to the modern day singer-songwriter genre.

Performances begin at 7 PM and will take place at the bandstand on the Village Green in the center of Hamilton with a rain location at the nearby Colgate Inn on the north end of the Village Green. Both locations are wheelchair accessible.

Hamilton Arts in the Park is presented by the Village of Hamilton and co-presented by the Earlville Opera House. The Village of Hamilton is grateful for funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.  For more in depth information about the artists or the Village Series visit our event calendar on the EOH website at www.earlvilleoperahouse.com or call us at (315) 691- 3550.

Jeremiahs for IGThe Earlville Opera House will host an evening with rising Celtic-favorites The Jeremiahs Saturday July 1 at 8 PM, sponsored by Bruce Ward, Architect. Heralded by Irish Music Magazine as “one of the freshest bands in Irish traditional music,” the Jeremiahs combine traditional and contemporary sounds to create their own brand of “urban folk” music.

Since founding in 2013 the quartet have traveled across Ireland and Europe playing some of the top venues and festivals.  “Male Vocalist of the Year” (Chicago Irish American News 2015) Joe Gibney leads the quartet with his instantly recognizable timbre, and offers a diverse repertoire of songs, from rousing sea shanties to emotional traditional songs of hardship, love and loss. The obvious passion and love for these songs, old and new, is plain to see and hear and will entrance and warm the heart of any music lover.

The Jeremiahs will perform at the Earlville Opera House July 1st at 8 PM. Tickets are $20 general, $15 members, and $10 students/youth, with premiums applying in the first 4 rows. Doors will open at 7:30 PM. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com.  The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville, NY.

Instrument Petting Zoo

Calling all musicians! The Earlville Opera House needs you and wild your instrument for the EOH Instrument Zoo at 6:30 pm on Thursday July 6th! The Instrument Zoo will be a family activity to expand children’s understanding for your instrument before the evening performance at 7:30 pm of the symphony concert by Symphoria.

Details: You will maintain complete control of your instrument. You are encouraged to demonstrate its use. If you are moved to allow someone to handle it that is your own choice. The most we ask is to allow the children to “pet” or touch the instrument. If the animal is too dangerous we ask its handler to keep it from “biting” anyone.

We ask for you to arrive with your wild instrument on the Hamilton Village green around 6:15 pm to help set up the Zoo at the Gazebo before the performance of Symphoria at 7:30 pm. The entire “zoo session” is scheduled for 30-45 minutes (depending on the number of children who attend). A “Zookeeper” will be on hand for crowd control and assistance to our instrument handlers.

We hope that you’ll be able to participate in this Earlville Opera House event for youth and families in our community! For more information, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com.
