Fred Moyer Returns!
We are very happy to report that renowned pianist Fred Moyer is scheduled to perform!
During over thirty years as a full-time concert pianist, Frederick Moyer has established a vital musical career that has taken him to forty-three countries, including Sydney, Australia and the Kennedy Center here in the U.S. as a piano soloist with many major orchestras.
In 1992, Fred started a record label, JBL Recordings, which has produced CD’s by numerous world-class musicians. His many recordings on this and other labels comprise works by over thirty composers and reflect an affinity for a wide range of styles. Many of today’s classical composers have written works for Moyer, including Pulitzer Prize winners George Walker and Ned Rorem, and Daniel Fox, whose Etudes of 2002-2006 were written under a grant from the Guggenheim Foundation.
Join us on Saturday, June 10th, at 2:30 p.m. for a concert you won’t soon forget!
Welcome Back Chalyce!
Another Bay Village favorite is performing this month! Chalyce Sullivan is a classically trained pianist who is also blessed with a beautiful singing voice! Her repertoire is varied and always includes Broadway favorites (she was in The Pajama Game!!), Great American Songbook standards and maybe a classical piano number thrown in for good measure!
Join us on Thursday, June 22nd, at 7:30 p.m. for another great concert with Chalyce!

Dr. Paul Runge, an Ophthalmologist here in Sarasota, is coming to talk about “Macular Degeneration” on Saturday, June 10th, at 10:00 am. This loss in the center of the field of vision is common in many people. Come with your questions about the health of your eyes; he will take some time and answer them.
Summer begins officially on June 21st, so let’s welcome the hot season with a Masterclass in the Auditorium on June 22nd at 9:30 am, followed by a pool workout at 10:15 am and then poolside refreshments will be offered. June 24th will be the next time for another Ringling Bridge Walk. Put your walking shoes on and join me on the Walk, or you can enjoy the view in the park and take a stroll there.
B.I.L.L. Series News
Kevin Costello recently completed a series on Goddesses in Art and we thank you for your attendance and we’re glad you enjoyed his classes.
We have a special presentation for you! We’ve got a summer full of Ken Burn’s documentaries for you all about New York, the city that never sleeps! We’ll start on July 4 at 7:30 p.m. with Coney Island! What better place to spend Independence Day!
Before there was Disneyland, there was Coney Island. By the turn of the century, this tiny piece of New York real estate was internationally famous. On any summer Sunday, great pleasure domes—Steeplechase, Luna Park and Dreamland— competed for the patronage of a half million people. By day an amusement park, by night it was an electric Eden!
Also this summer, enjoy a documentary about the Brooklyn Bridge and an eight-part series about the history of New York. Details about both will be in your July newsletter.
We are also waiting for confirmation of a summer class (or two) from Adult and Community Education. We’ll let you know as soon as we know!
A Day for Dads
Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June. It is a time to honor fathers, celebrate fatherhood and appreciate the influence of fathers in society. Let all the fathers in your life know how special they are on this day just for them. At Bay Village, we celebrate with our annual Father’s Day Dinner! Special menu will be in your mailbox mid-June and we will have seatings at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. ENJOY and Happy Father’s Day!!
Day Trips and Travels!
Upcoming trips this summer include our FIRST Drum Circle on Siesta Beach! Drummer Edsel Van de Wal Arnemann will lead on Thursday, June 1st! Bus departs for the beach at 4:00 p.m. We’ll bring a dinner picnic to enjoy! Edsel will give you a little history of drumming in general and he will bring a dozen drums for you to borrow. Bay Village also has a few drums. If you have a drum and want to bring it … great!! Drumming is optional, of course! If you want to walk the beach or just join us for the picnic, that’s great!
On Monday, June 12th, we will depart Bay Village at 10:15 a.m. for a tour of the Asolo Repertory Theater. We have never done this, so we’re really looking forward to it! You’ll learn what it takes to put on a show and see behind-thescenes areas, including the sets, costume and props areas. Exciting! Following our tour, we’ll enjoy a lunch from Morton’s Market.
As a followup, we’ll head to the Koski Scenic Studios in September where we will view the expansive area where sets are being built before your eyes and really get a holistic understanding of what it takes to put on shows of the high caliber that our amazing Asolo Theater manages each and every year! Details of that will be in your September newsletter.
Have fun, everyone!
