Fascinatin' Rhythms' Michael Lasser Coming To Brockport

March 10, 2022

Fascinatin’ Rhythms – Songs from the Great American Songbook, with Michael Lasser, Alan Jones, and Jessica Ann Best is the fourth and final event in Brockport’s popular Winter Serenades series. This special event takes place March 27, 2022 from 3:00-4:30 in St. Luke’s Episcopal Church at the corner of State and Main Streets. There is no charge and no tickets are required. In addition to ample street parking availability there is a public lot behind the church.

As Lasser says, this is a program of old songs, some of them a century old. Written between the two world wars by such songwriters as Irving Berlin, the Gershwins, Cole Porter, and Johnny Mercer, they form an unequalled body of distinctively American songs. Combining familiarity with inventiveness, merging sentiment and wit, they remain as fresh and singable now as when they were new.

Michael Lasser, speaker, broadcaster, and critic, is the author of City Songs & American Life, 1900-1950 (2019), America’s Songs II: From the 1890’s to the Post-War Years (2013); and with Philip Furia, America’s Songs: The Stories Behind the songs of Broadway, Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley (2006).

For more than forty years, from 1980-2021, Lasser was the beloved host and producer of the nationally syndicated public radio show, Fascinatin’ Rhythm. He was recognized with a 1994 Peabody Award for letting “our treasury of popular tunes speak (and sing) for itself with sparkling commentary, tracing the contributions of the composers and performers to American society.”

He is also the former theater critic for the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, and for 35 years has spoken at museums and universities all over the country.

Jessica Ann Best and Alan Jones are also well known in Rochester and far beyond. Jones, singer and piano player extraordinaire, performs a wide variety of repertoire, from Cabaret to Classical.

Best, known for her vocal versatility, performs nationwide in opera, musical theater, jazz, concert, oratorio, and recital. Critic Laurence Vittes said that her singing “showed just how magnificent and commanding a mezzo-soprano can be.”

Lasser’s books will be available for purchase and signing at the open reception immediately following the performance.

Current CDC COVID safety guidelines will be followed. See stlukesbrockport.org for a YouTube link to view the performance at home.

Duck Banding at Corbett Park

February 9, 2022

On Thursday and/or Friday, February 10th and 11th, New York State Department of Conservation staff, along with SUNY Brockport faculty and students, will be banding ducks at Corbett Park in the Village of Brockport. Live-trapping and banding ducks is a regular part of waterfowl management across North America, and NYSDEC works with its federal and international partners to contribute to ongoing studies and population monitoring. Ducks are baited with cracked corn and enter a walk-in trap, which will be monitored by staff, and are then briefly handled and receive a metal leg band with a unique number assigned by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The ducks are then released at the site immediately afterward. By trapping and banding right in Brockport, Environmental Science & Ecology students are able to get hands-on experience with wildlife management and contribute to long-term, international studies.

Please contact the NYSDEC Avon wildlife office (585-226-5380) or NYSDEC regional waterfowl biologist Christina Hoh (315-365-2134) if you have any questions.
