We are tremendously excited about this addition to our programming, and delighted to help ensure that Stone Canoe continues its tradition of presenting fine art and writing from our region.
The new issue of Stone Canoe is $18 (including shipping) and features nearly 275 pages of art, poetry, fiction, and essays.

Calling all instrumentalists, singers, songwriters, and composers! Starting in February, the Onondaga County Public Library (OCPL) will launch an innovative new outreach program called "OCPL MasterClass" with presenting partner CNY Jazz Central. Intended to identify, nurture and reward developing musical talent of all kinds in Central New York, OCPL MasterClass will offer all participants critical feedback by experts, concert performance opportunities, a marketing workshop, professional video recordings and prizes including free studio time.
The goal of the program is to "cultivate cultural capital" in all musical styles by identifying and nurturing artists who need to be recognized, gain confidence, and advance their education and careers. Said Larry Luttinger, designer of the series, "MasterClass is not a competition; there will be no mean judges! These classes are open to all 12 and older, at all levels of experience, in all conceivable styles, and they are free. Professionals, semi-pros, amateurs, and students are all welcome to perform in absolutely any style. Syracuse has produced some amazing performers who have achieved fame on the national scene. This program will give tomorrow's talent a boost to the next level."
Participants choose one of four classes that are offered on Saturdays throughout the spring, and those who have any questions may attend a pre-class information session. In each master class, performers will be given up to four minutes to perform in any style, and will receive immediate constructive public feedback from a panel of experts and a video card of their performance and feedback session for self-study. They are encouraged to stay in classes to observe their peers. Master teachers will be local professionals such as Todd Hobin, Joe Altier, Jacque Tara Washington, Jackie Warren-Moore, a classical music judge TBA, and others -- all successful career professionals and educators.
All participants will then perform again in a gala grand finale concert which is preceded by a one-hour workshop on the basics of developing an online artist portfolio. Their finale performances will be professionally video-recorded and given to them for future use in their online portfolios, and for use as audition material.
