About Arlington
map
Arlington, MA local information about the Town of Arlington and the local businesses and events. Arlington Massachusetts was founded over 350 years ago and remains proud of its history throughout its growth into a modern community. Arlington is the birthplace of Uncle Sam and the location of the first children's library.

Arlington has preserved many of its historical buildings and its town common which was the site of most of the fighting when the British marched through as they returned from the Old North Bridge at the beginning of the Revolutionary War.

Arlington was once a thriving mill and agricultural town but now hosts commercial development centers. Its access to Metropolitan Boston has made it a very desirable place to live and its diverse population has demanded good schools and recreation facilities which together have made Arlington very attractive to families.

Midsummer Night's Dream
When Verse and Vodka thinks of Shakespeare, we think of the groundlings, the people who stood on the ground at The Globe Theater to watch a show because they couldn't afford a seat. We ask ourselves - "What would have made the groundlings laugh?" There is no joke too cheap, no laugh too easy. Sit in a seat but set your mind to be a groundling for this well-known and well-loved play Our shows are performed semi-staged with scripts in hand and actors moving among the audience. The bar opens at 7:00 pm, one hour before the play starts (at 8:00 pm), so bring your dinner and make a night of it. Stay after the show to mingle with the cast and your friends until we shut the place down at 11:00 pm. We believe in "Pay What You Can". Online a $10 minimum is required, and the suggested price is $10. However, we want people to be able to attend. If you would like to make alternative arrangements for tickets, please contact our box office at boxoffice@verseandvodka.com. Buy 8 tickets in advance, and we'll reserve a table for your party so you're guaranteed seats together.

The Transgender Singer: What we Know So Far, What We Don't, and Where We Need To Go
Butterfly Founder Sandi Hammond and music therapist and Leadership Council member Dr Rebecca Zarate share what they have observed about possible best practices for working with transgender singers. Several members of the Butterfly Music Transgender Chorus will also be on hand to speak from their own experience. Considerations includes: * pedagogical considerations for altering range through training * abandoning gendered clothing for performances/appropriate accommodations * abandoning SATB- now what? * accommodating the nonbinary and/or gender fluid singer * considering the impact of hormones on the voice * anxiety and distress over gender identity and its impact on learning * social and psychological considerations- music teachers are not therapists, but therapists can share some useful insights that will help teachers help this population * where is research today? * where should research go next? * what can voice teachers, choral conductors, and music teachers do to be more inclusive? * language and protocol that show you support your gender-noncforming singers * what questions are on the minds of voice teachers and choral directors? What are the concerns in the community? This two-hour workshop is meant to be a beginning conversation for area practitioners to inform a longer workshop and research project in 2016-2017. If you can't make this particular date, please sign our mailing list!

Growing Bonds (3-6 months): Arlington
Growing Bonds: New Moms Group (3 - 6 months) - Meet a group of other moms in your area - Talk, listen, laugh, bond Mommybites Boston is proud to offer Boston-area moms support groups launched in NYC in 2008! In our new moms groups, each week you’ll share experiences, engage in parenting discussions, gather valuable resources, and ask your parenting questions on order to make this time of major transition smoother, saner, easier and more enjoyable! After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be fully connected to a great group of other trusted moms and feel empowered with essential skills such as dealing with sleep deprivation, feeding strategies, developmental milestones & balancing life's demands. Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor. -When: Six Fridays 10/30 - 12/11 ( No class 11/27) -Time: 9:30-10:45am -Where: Dance Place, Arlington -Fee: $170 Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor and Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting.  What if I have to miss a session? Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms. What Mommybites Moms are Saying: Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure... The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC... I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Foggy Mountain Consort & Friends
Time to give back to the community and highlight some of the incredible home-grown talent in and around Arlington! For this show, Foggy Mountain Consort (Lauck Benson, Peter Lehman, Anne Goodwin, Art Schatz, Doug Freundlich) take over our stage. You may recognize some of your friends or neighbors, and you'll certainly recognize entertaining, eclectic music, brilliantly played. Foggy Mountain Consort are a group dedicated to performing music from a wide historical range. Starting with plucked string music and songs from as early as 1600. While this music is very old, it still rings contemporary when approached in the right manner. We mix old instruments with newer ones, old styles with a fresh approach, and mostly have a great time making music together. We try to play with all our heart and soul, have no fear, and enjoy the collaboration. We also pull from the vast repertoire of "collected" ballads from the British Isles. Collected by Francis James Child in the late nineteenth century, these and other tunes, sometime familiar, always haunting and heartfelt, offer a deep hunting ground for the Foggy Mountain Consort. With true origins unknown, ballads and old tunes might easily stretch back to the middle ages. Then of course there's bluegrass and traditional North American music. The Foggy Mountain Consort does get around to playing old style bluegrass, but in its own eclectic way. And there's much more from this unusual band. Early music, long forgotten songs, romping bluegrass, and new music inspired by old styles. Rich textures from the lute, banjo, violone (Renaissance double bass), violin, guitar, and voices. We like to say, Old is new, new is old.

West African Dunun Drumming (Bass Drums) with Alan Tauber
Have a fantastic time learning how and why to play these magical drums of the Malinké; the Dunun, Sangban and Kenkeni as they are often called in many villages Using sticks in the right and left hands, we play the bells and bass drum and create the melodies that make up the songs of the Malinké. There is nothing more beautiful than to be a part of playing this music. Alan’s system of teaching the dunun drums is unique and makes for faster learning and remembering of rhythms. We plan to work on one full rhythm with kenkeni, sangban and dununba parts. We will also learn variations for the songs and go in and out of these variations, creating an arrangement. Adding to that more musicallity in learning Intro and Outro sections that will complete the workshop and the musical pieces.  Echauffements ("heating up" drum patterns to raise excitement and energy) will be taught and emphasized. You will come away a better player! You'll be more relaxed, more focussed, and have better control of the sticks and the sound of the drums. We will add the playing of 'ballet style' dunun! This is something I rarely teach as I prefer students know the traditions but, if we have time I will show you my easy methods for these verticle drums. Please bring an audio recorder and maybe a pen and paper. And a dunun is optional, use one of ours! Workshop size is limited to 10 people -- register early to make sure you get a space in the workshop! Registration fee is $30.- (cash, check or credit card)We will send you a registration and confirmation email. Doors will open 15 minutes before class time.

The Transgender Singer: What we Know So Far, What We Don't, and Where We Need To Go
Butterfly Founder Sandi Hammond and music therapist and Leadership Council member Dr Rebecca Zarate share what they have observed about possible best practices for working with transgender singers. Several members of the Butterfly Music Transgender Chorus will also be on hand to speak from their own experience. Considerations includes: * pedagogical considerations for altering range through training * abandoning gendered clothing for performances/appropriate accommodations * abandoning SATB- now what? * accommodating the nonbinary and/or gender fluid singer * considering the impact of hormones on the voice * anxiety and distress over gender identity and its impact on learning * social and psychological considerations- music teachers are not therapists, but therapists can share some useful insights that will help teachers help this population * where is research today? * where should research go next? * what can voice teachers, choral conductors, and music teachers do to be more inclusive? * language and protocol that show you support your gender-noncforming singers * what questions are on the minds of voice teachers and choral directors? What are the concerns in the community? This two-hour workshop is meant to be a beginning conversation for area practitioners to inform a longer workshop and research project in 2016-2017.

Midsummer Night's Dream
When Verse and Vodka thinks of Shakespeare, we think of the groundlings, the people who stood on the ground at The Globe Theater to watch a show because they couldn't afford a seat. We ask ourselves - "What would have made the groundlings laugh?" There is no joke too cheap, no laugh too easy. Sit in a seat but set your mind to be a groundling for this well-known and well-loved play Our shows are performed semi-staged with scripts in hand and actors moving among the audience. The bar opens at 7:00 pm, one hour before the play starts (at 8:00 pm), so bring your dinner and make a night of it. Stay after the show to mingle with the cast and your friends until we shut the place down at 11:00 pm. We believe in "Pay What You Can". Online a $10 minimum is required, and the suggested price is $10. However, we want people to be able to attend. If you would like to make alternative arrangements for tickets, please contact our box office at boxoffice@verseandvodka.com.

INTRODUCTION TO COUPLE THERAPY:  THROUGH THE LENS OF ATTACHMENT
INTRODUCTION TO COUPLE THERAPY:  THROUGH THE LENS OF ATTACHMENT  The very difficult work of treating distressed couples requires a clearly defined approach. Clinicians can gain confidence about offering highly effective treatment through taking this course, as it is designed to focus explicitly on the theory and practice of a few distinct attachment-based models, with an emphasis on EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy).  In the past few decades, the empirically validated model of EFT has become regarded as one of the most powerful in the field. EFT is a short-term treatment model of couple therapy that has been shown to move 70– 75% of couples from distress to recovery, and 90% to significant improvement. EFT provides therapists with a road map to better understand and work with the underlying recurrent patterns of couple conflict.  In addition to teaching EFT skills, this course will introduce ways to use other contemporary attachment-based models, such as Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Internal Family Systems(IFS), in couple work. These models very effectively complement an EFT-based understanding of both distressed and healthy couples’ dynamics.  Course participants can expect to acquire working knowledge of EFT and introductory concepts of IFS and AEDP, and will be able to apply aspects of all three models clinically to create change when working with dyads.   Class structure will incorporate didactic lecture, discussion, experiential role plays, and viewed taped sessions that illustrate specific therapeutic interventions. Participants will receive copies of the Powerpoint presentations and support documents presented in class. Previous experince working with couples is helpful but not mandatory.   Class will meet in the Fall of 2016 on Fridays from 2-4pm:  9/9, 9/23, 9/30, 10/21, 11/4, 11/18, 12/2, and 12/16.  Fee:  $895 + $35 for CEUs Instructors:  Danielle Green, LICSW Suzanne McCarthy, PsyD  Suzanne Marcus, LMFT  Location:   NECCF (New England Center for Couples and Families)  742 Massachusetts Ave.  Arlington, MA  02476  781.641.0070    www.newenglandcouplesandfamilies.com

Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor. -When: Six Fridays 7/24 - 8/28  -Time: 11:15am-12:45pm  -Where: Dance Place, Arlington -Fee: $170 Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor and Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting.  What if I have to miss a session? Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms. What Mommybites Moms are Saying: Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure... The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC... I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Lori Diamond & Fred Abatelli
Bostonian Lori Diamond and New Yorker Fred Abatelli, have been creating and performing music together since their "destined" meeting on Myspace in 2007. These two seasoned players have put the time in, supporting other successful musical acts, but have now emerged to the forefront - and not a moment too soon! Lori, an award winning songwriter (finalist, Great American Songwriting Contest 2010, Best Female Vocalist, Pulse Magazine 2011, 2012), combines alluring, soulful vocals and seasoned piano playing with Fred's solid finger work and clever phrasing on both bass and guitar. Their songs explore the many facets of the human condition with hope and an esoteric sensibility. Fans of Norah Jones, Sarah MacLachlan and Joni Mitchell, quickly become fans of Lori & Fred as they explore Jazz, Acoustic, Folk, Pop, Gospel and blues influences and gently infuse them into their own, highly original style. With two highly acclaimed CDs under their belts, "LIFTED" is the title of the third, newest collection of their complex, heartfelt songs. The duo has crafted exquisite melodies that employ everything from retro jazz stylings to hypnotic meditations. Songs of eternal love, self acceptance, and powerful life lessons will soothe, excite and uplift simultaneously! Lori & Fred have been showcased on the main stage of the legendary, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and have headlined festivals and performed alongside John Gorka, Peter Yarrow, Joan Osborne, Amy Ray, David Wilcox, Michael Johnson, Susan Werner, Vance Gilbert, Brother Sun, Brooks Williams, Jimmy Lafave, Ellis Paul, Mary Gauthier and more! LDFA continues to offer transcendent performances throughout Northeast while joyously connecting with new friends and fans.
