Live Music – Silent Auction

Cocktails, Wines, Beers, and Hors d’oeuvres

The Sanford-Covell Villa Marina is located in the quiet historic district, The Point. It is a perfect waterfront location with an amazing wraparound piazza which affords magnificent views of Narragansett Bay and the Newport Bridge. An article in the Boston Journal of August 9, 1870 calls it ‘the most elegantly finished house ever built in Newport’ and the house is now on the ‘National Register of Historic Places.’

An early work of the Boston architects, Fehmer and Emerson, this house is exceptional for its interior decoration in the Pompeian style. Irregular in shape, the house is excellently adapted for summer living along the shore. The surrounding open porches further establish the relationship to the sea.

The sunsets from the Piazza are a spectacular delight and this porch has become a virtual Newport Icon.

The raw metal materials and ocean washed stone used are made to last for centuries and are of high grade metals and alloys including aluminum, stainless steel, copper and bronze.

Mr. Hetland will discuss the general process behind development of his works, including sketching and research, as well as discussing and demonstrating some of the metal and stone-working techniques.

Arts Behind the Scenes featuring St. John Church’s historic Hook and Hastings Organ

Arts Behind the Scenes featuring St. John Church’s historic Hook and Hastings Organ

presented by Organist and Choirmaster, Peter Stoltzfus Berton
IMG_0125

Saturday, March 18th 3:00 pm
Saint John the Evangelist Church
61 Poplar St, Newport, RI
at the corner of Washington and Willow Streets

 

The organ was built in 1894 and consists of 1,769 pipes in the organ chamber. The largest pipe is 16 ft. long in speaking length (not counting the “foot”), 18 inches square, and made of maple. The smallest pipe is a half inch long in speaking length, about 1/16 inch in diameter, and made of tin and lead. Modern electronic circuits have replaced some of the mechanical operations but no frequency is enhanced or created by electronic or digital simulation, excepting one temporary replacement (the Pedal Trombone) while original pipes and chest are being restored.

Mr. Berton will discuss the electrification of the organ and well as some of the plans for future restoration. He will perform a brief musical demonstration photo-180of the instrument’s resources, a discussion of the application of modern technology to an old instrument with integrity, and allow for Q&A and attendees to both tour the interior mechanisms and play the instrument.

As with the summer organ recital series he has performed at the church the past three summers, video cameras and a PSBreddoorprojector screen will take the audience right into the action during this event.

$10 for ACA Members and $12 for non-ACA members
RSVP as space is limited.
