ADAMS, Mass. — Walkers and bikers along the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail have a view of the first of what's hoped to be many art installations along its several miles.

"Crows Local," a murder of crows taking flight against a deepening sky, was unveiled on Friday evening at 13 1/2 Grove Art Works.

"This is one of the first experimental murals," said the artist, Patricia Fietta. "We wanted to try it out on our building first. But the next one is going to be at the water treatment plant in Adams."

The 24-by-7-foot triptych was blown up from a smaller work created by Fietta. The artworks building, a former mill at 13 1/2 Grove being renovated by

Often, when we think of our greatest musicians – performers who spend countless hours practicing their instrument, and leading up to that, years perfecting their craft to attain the highest levels of virtuosic and interpretive artistry - we may assume that their lives are fully taken up by mastering their art.

So, it may come as a surprise that occasionally, a maestro ("master") can find the time and passion to dedicate her/himself to a completely different art form – and to, over the years, excel equally at that "secondary" activity. Such is the case with Boston Symphony violinist Gerald Elias.

A graduate of Yale University, Elias has been a Boston

Contemplating "Sausage Party," an R-rated, animated food orgy in more ways than one, I'm reminded of what a fellow journalist once opined at a block party: "You know what's wrong with you film critics? You see so many movies that when you chance upon something different, you just go crazy."

Thus, I'm proud to report that while the very bawdy, irreverent, sometimes hilarious and ultimately overcooked "Sausage Party" is certainly different, I'm managing to contain myself. While featuring some fine writing and direction from a gaggle of popular, Hollywood humorists, perhaps it's the cartoon venue that inspires some of the deleterious

The approach of Labor Day marks the conclusion of the summer music festival season, and so the local classical music scene coalesces, as regional presenters favor intimate spaces for chamber music during the upcoming fall.
This will become the dominant genre of music making to be found until next June, when the warm late spring weather invites us to share massed performances outdoors at Tanglewood and other venues, large and small.

Looking ahead, you'll find a variety of concerts presented in churches, chapels, small auditoriums, halls and the like throughout the region. Even Tanglewood's acoustically superb Ozawa Hall is really too big for a string quartet or piano trio to be

If you need a very literate affirmation that life can sometimes be brutal, sad, mocking, unfair and heartrending, then director/screenwriter James Schamus' diligent adaptation of Philip Roth's "Indignation" awaits you at the Bijou. You can't help but be mesmerized by the searing, incisive realities Roth mines in his chronicle of a Jewish young man's experiences, circa early 1950s, at a small college in Ohio. The messages, either blatant or frighteningly violent in their subtlety, are delivered with righteous indignation, suggesting a modern addendum to the Greek tragedies.

If you're familiar with the Pulitzer Prize-winning author's body of work,

During this penultimate week of the Tanglewood Festival, the spotlight will focus on a wide range of both standard and unusual fare in varied genres: from Stravinsky, Mozart and Verdi, to Berlioz, Saint-Saëns, Prokofiev and contemporary composer George Tsontakis (b. 1951).

Come late August, classical aficionados are saddened to acknowledge the waning Tanglewood season – a cornucopia of musical riches presented in an incomparably bucolic setting. Many of those superlative concerts will reside in our collective memory for a long time.

There's no cause, though, for dismay. Looking ahead, these last two months of magnificent music making are but a prelude to the fall array of

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The first Common Folk Arts & Music Festival will take place this Saturday to benefit the new Roots Teen Center.   Common Folk, the North Adams-based artist collective, has rapidly gained momentum during its short existence, hosting galleries and concert events with local talent. Co-founder and creative director Jessica Sweeney said the group has built up a solid roster of bands and artists and thought the next logical step was to organize a full-on music festival.     "I think that we have always really enjoyed doing these larger projects, and … we really wanted to start something annually so that we could share our artists

Kaczmarek is in Williamstown to play a lead role in the American premiere of "And No More Shall We Part," on the Nikos Stage from Wednesday, Aug. 10, through Aug. 21.
