April 29, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 15 Glen Rock Day of prayer planned The 58th Annual National Day of Prayer will be held on Thursday, May 7. All Glen Rock residents are invited to meet from noon to 12:15 p.m. in front of the municipal building to offer prayers for the nation, community, and children. Call Carol Garofalo (201) 652-2311 or Ginny Stonehouse (201) 689-9470 for information. Season’s finale (continued from page 14) Youth Soloist Competition. She will be performing “Variations on the Opera Carmen,” a solo that combines audience appeal with a tremendous technical display. The Ridgewood Concert Band will also perform “Slalom,” recently written by Carter Pann, one of the most exciting composers in the country. In the style of great movie chase classics with a touch of Leonard Bernstein’s “Westside Story” and “Candide,” Slalom describes a wild ride down the ski slope. The piece became an instant hit when it premiered two years ago. The concert will conclude with invited high school guests joining the band in performances of “Soundtrack” by Patrick Burns, a world premiere of an imaginary movie soundtrack; “Crown Imperial,” written for the coronation of King George VI; and John Philip Sousa’s “Fairest of the Fair.” Tickets are $20 for adults ($15 for seniors) and will be available at the door beginning at 7 p.m. Discounted tickets and additional information (including directions) are available at the band’s website at www.ridgewoodband.org. Petrov Ballet School, which first opened its doors in October 2008, will hold its first Spring Gala, featuring the studio’s ballet and character students and professional guest artists, in a performance on Saturday, May 30. The Spring Gala will be the highlight of the school year. The performance will include the “Pas d’action” from “La Bayadère,” a world-renowned classical ballet; “Bedtime Ballyhoo,” an original short-story ballet for younger children; and an exciting divertissement of character dances. Guest artists from New Jersey Ballet, Festival Ballet, and formerly American Ballet Theater will be performing along with the students of Petrov Ballet School in this professional-style production. Advanced students will be performing the “Pas d’action” from Act I of “La Bayadère.” This excerpt from a famous ballet is full of breathtaking classical dancing. Erica Chipp of Festival Ballet and Eugene Petrov, artistic director of Petrov Ballet, will dance the principal roles of Gamzatti and Solor. “Bedtime Ballyhoo the Ballet” is an original shortstory ballet choreographed by Petrov. A newly published children’s storybook, “Bedtime Ballyhoo,” by Nicki Granata Bosch, with lively illustrations by Mike Moran, was the inspiration for this work. Junio Teixeira and Sergio Amarante of New Jersey Ballet will be dancing as lead characters in this piece. Also featured will be several of Petrov’s signature “Character Dance Divertissement,” including the Italian “Tarantella” and Georgian “Lezginka.” Petrov Ballet’s younger pupils will perform a fun-filled “Russian Dance.” As a celebration of Petrov Ballet’s first Spring Gala, special guest artists Anna Liceica and Eric Otto, formerly with American Ballet Theater and New York City Ballet, will perform a classical Pas de Deux.
