Silver Regional SASS host the 4th annual Zeal for Teal

Why photographs? Why playscripts and drama? Why song lyrics? Inclusionism run amok? Not enough writers?

I mean, it says right there in the title "Written Word" but then we've put in all this other stuff. This second and the following third letter regarding the upcoming SWFWW will look at the non-written word portions of the festival. Next time we'll peek at the song lyrics sessions and the dramatic presentations that SWFWW sponsors.Of course, the short answer is story: pictures and plays and songs tell stories. For the intrepid souls out there, a long answer is suggested at the bottom of this article in a link to a YouTube video about an alternative theory of the origins of language. Since it favors vision as a model for our linguistic ability and I'm a visual artist by training, it makes perfect sense.

“Teresa Walters is that rare musical phenomenon – a pianist born to the instrument,” announces Austrian National Television: “One of the world’s most significant pianists, she creates magic with the music.” She is described as ‘The International First Lady of Piano’ by The New York Times because her mesmerizing performances on today’s international stages earn worldwide praise. Her prestigious invitations to perform in honor of the recent Liszt Bicentennial included Copenhagen’s Hungarian Embassy and Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall. In 2017-18, she performs her 500th Birthday Party program in major world capitals in celebration of the Quincentennial of the Reformation. 

Her biography could be written from headlines alone: “Teresa Walters Plays Piano on Grand Scale” (The Cincinnati Inquirer); “Her Hands Create Cascades of Luminescence” (The Washington Post); “A Liszt of Very Fine Performances” (The Budapest Sun); “Bright Shining Star in Recital” (El Norte, Mexico); “Teresa Walters Holds Keys to Audience’s Hearts” (The Record).

In recent years, she has performed as recitalist and orchestral soloist on six continents and in most of the 50 United States at venues including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York, Wigmore Hall in London, the Salle Cortot in Paris, Moscow’s Great Hall, Australia’s International Conservatorium and Jerusalem’s Concert Hall.

Gather up your family and friends and come to Glenwood and join us for the 15th Whitewater Mesa Fun Kite Flying Picnic. Last year 161 people joined us so there is plenty of space without fences to tangle your kite strings, and room to park for your tailgate picnic. While you are here and for a completely different experience, walk one or all six of the labyrinths and a maze across the road at Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths. For the second time we are sanctioned by the American Kitefliers Association so have joined the international world of kitefliers.

TIME: 12 noon – 5 p.m. on Saturday April 6, 2019.
