The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts (ALCA) has announced two upcoming livestreams, as part of their ALCA-Seltzer Series: Online Relief from the Headaches of Social Distancing.
The first livestream, “Shakespeare on Pause: Part I,” is an encore performance of the 2019 Adirondack Lakes Summer Theatre Festival (ALSTF) production of Macbeth, set for Friday, July 31st; and a recital by violinist Madeleine Jansen on August 7th.
The production of Macbeth, an abridged version that toured to outdoor venues around the Adirondacks last year, was directed by Jayson Grigsby, a director/performer for several seasons with the Summer Theatre Festival who tragically passed away last winter. “Shakespeare on Pause: Part II,” on August 14, will feature clips from other recent Summer Theatre Festival productions and a tribute to Jayson and to Anne Vaccaro, another ALSTF director/actor who passed away within the last several years.
Madeleine Jansen has been a violin instructor at the Luzerne Music Center in Lake Luzern for the past five years. Maintaining a large and active private studio during the year in New York City, Madeleine also keeps busy as a performer. Not only an amazing classical musician, Madeleine has also performed with Michael Bublé, Rod Steward, Josh Groban, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and on NBC’s Today Show.
Both livestreams begin at 7 pm. Links can be found on the ALCA website. Donations of $10 are suggested to view these livestreams.
