Westport Weston First Night Activities

Venue #1 Westport Town Hall

3-5 p.m.

“Trashin’ Fashion” Fashion Show aims to provide its participants with the chance to design and create costumes out of recycled, inorganic and organic materials. It’s an opportunity to make something wonderful from those things that are left over, and usually thrown away. Creatively conceived and executed apparel will be unleashed on the exclusive Westport fashion scene. Directed by Daniel Lanzilotta and Irina Simeonova of Gibbs College http://www.gibbsnorwalk.edu assisted by Staples student Laura Berk. WestportNow.com Image

Auditorium, 7-7:45, p.m. 8-8:45 p.m.

Back by overwhelming popular demand, “The Key Ingredients” consist of A.J. Gundel, Scarlett Lee Moore, Suzanne Sheridan, and EdWard Thompson. If these names sound familiar, then you are obviously a music fan who lives in Fairfield County. Individually these musicians have made solid solo careers for themselves but have come together to give their unique sound to a repertoire that includes folk, gospel, and blues music. Their powerful blending of three-part harmonies will have you yelling for more.


Auditorium, 9:15-10 p.m., 10:15-11 p.m.

A rollicking romp of a show that brings back your favorite comedy stars from the golden age of classic Vaudeville – Jimmy Durante, Al Jolson, Abbott and Costello, The Marx Brothers. http://www.legendsofvaudeville.com

Westport’s Four-Hand Band To Perform At Library

The husband-and-wife piano duo of Cathy Waldman and Paul Levi—known as Four-Hand Band—will perform in the Westport Library’s McManus Room on Jan. 8 at 2 p.m.

The Westport duo will open their performance with Mozart’s 40th Symphony in an arrangement almost never heard in concert.

They will also perform their own original arrangements of Prokofiev’s Overture on Hebrew Melodies and tango-inspired music by Astor Piazzolla. 

Waldman has performed as a chamber musician and soloist in her own compositions throughout the U.S., Europe, Israel, and South Africa.

Gov. M. Jodi Rell and Galvin urged Connecticut residents to talk to their doctor about getting a flu shot.

“If you have been waiting to get a flu shot, please don’t wait any longer — flu is here and there is still vaccine available in the state,” Rell said in a statement.
