The Steeldrivers- Bluegrass at Clayton Opera House

Throughout their career-one that encompasses four highly acclaimed albums and any number of awards and accolades (including a Grammy) – the band has demonstrated the ability to change with unwavering persistence.

They liken themselves to what the Rolling Stones would sound like if they played banjos, fiddles and mandolins – it’s that rock-n-roll edge played on traditional instruments.

Clayton Community Band Concert – Clayton Opera House


-

Our band is made up of members that come from all over the North Country. Although many live in Clayton, Watertown or surrounding communities in Jefferson County, some of our musicians travel from St. Lawrence and Lewis Counties. We have a few members from even farther away who spend summers in the Clayton area and we welcome them back to play with us each summer season. We also come from many different walks of life. Some of our performers are life-long musicians either as performers or educators in local schools, some are professionals in other areas, and some have retired from their careers and are just looking for a fun and relaxing way to get involved in the community. Despite our differences we all come together each week to rehearse the music that we love sharing with our dedicated audiences. All members are listed in the programs for each of our concerts.

The philosophy of the Clayton Community Band is to afford any dedicated individual, who previously or currently plays a band instrument, an outlet to perform in rehearsal and public performance.

Preparation and presentation of concert band music is geared toward continuous education and enjoyment by the performers, while entertaining and educating the residents and guests of Clayton and surrounding communities through diversified programs of band literature. Working as a team to interpret and convey to an audience any select or particular selection of band music develops a serene sense of camaraderie. Great friendships are born through music, whether by working together as a team or by enjoying a live performance of musicians of various ages with diversified backgrounds performing for the love of music.

New York Voices- Jazz at Clayton Opera House


-

New York Voices was born in the mid-1980s at upstate New York’s Ithaca College. Peter Eldridge, an aspiring jazz pianist who came late to singing; Kim Nazarian, who dreamed of a life on Broadway; and Darmon Meader, a saxophonist and self-described “choral geek,” came together in the school’s vocal jazz ensemble. Director Dave Reilly included all three of them, as well as Caprice Fox, in an ensemble he’d been invited to bring on a tour of European jazz festivals. They made the transition to New York City and in 1988 met Sara Krieger, who became the fifth member of the band. They have collaborated with institutions such as the Count Basie Orchestra, Paquito d’Rivera, and the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band.

They have also launched a jazz education initiative for aspiring jazz singers. They will be conducting a two-day workshop with local area students which will culminate with a performance at the Opera House.

Tickets are $35/$40/$45 (Side/Center/Premium)

The Local Arts Fall Festival at Veterans Memorial Riverwalk, Watertown


-

The Watertown Downtown Business Association, with the Downtown Art Committee is bringing the annual Fall Festival back in 2022 to celebrate local arts in Watertown.
The Fall Festival was a tradition for over 20 years. During that time, the festival slowly declined in participation and attendance. In 2019, the DBA decided to postpone the festival until the fall of 2020 to reimagine and plan an improved festival. Then 2020 & 2021 happened.
Now, we are bringing it back in a big way as the Local Arts Fall Festival in the Veteran’s Memorial Riverwalk Park on Newell St in Downtown.
We plan to fill the park, from Mill St to Arch St, with vendors, food trucks, artists, classic cars, and other entertainments. There will be live artist demonstrations, live music, dance demonstrations, performance art, and we are even inviting actors to come down to perform.
And it all happens on October 8, 2022.
The festival will celebrate all the arts; visual, performing, music, food, and creative.
So, come to Downtown for a LAFF!
For Sponsorship information, vendor registration, or any other inquires, email the DBA at [email protected]
Proceeds benefit the Riverwalk Mural Gallery.

Under normal circumstances, the conference is held at the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel overlooking the beautiful St. Lawrence River in the historic village of Clayton, NY- just blocks from the Thousand Islands Arts Center’s Handweaving Museum. The conference will be held virtually in 2021.

In order to celebrate, promote and share academic work on the subject of handweaving, the Historic Manuscripts Conference was founded in 1994. The name was changed to the Weaving History Conference (WHC) later to reflect the expansion of the subject of the conference to contain not just academic weaving presentations, but information on all fiber arts. Today the WHC is entering its impressive 26th consecutive year!

Our galleries and classrooms will be transformed into a festive family-friendly experience full of vendors, crafts, gift-wrapping, hot cocoa, and more. Held on the same day as the popular Clayton Christmas Parade (when the town is filled with visitors!), The Elves’ Fair will be the place to go for holiday shopping and free gift wrapping.

Vendor spaces are limited and open to quality, hand-crafted items, fine arts, and unique gifts (commercially made items are not allowed). Suggested price range for goods is $25-$60. Stocking stuffers do especially well! Vendors keep 100% of proceeds from their sales.
