The Endless Mountain Music Festival’s three-week internship program began on Monday, July 15 and will end on Sunday, Aug. 4.

This year, there are eight festival interns. They include exceptional high school music students and music performance students who are undergraduates or in a master’s degree program at a college or university in the United States. An intern is accepted into this program based on his or her music teacher’s recommendation and submission of an audition video. The interns include: Sarah Van Waes, Genevieve Batman, Christian Hartman and Collin Hill on cello; Jonathan Sotelo on percussion; Noah Wang on violin; Jacob Weglarz on trumpet; and Nick Bulgarino on trombone.

The Endless Mountain Music Chamber Academy offers interns the opportunity to perform and study with world-renowned musicians. Those musicians include: Gita Ladd and John Kaboff, cello; Simon Bjarning, percussion; Hua Jin, violin; Luis Engelke, trumpet; and Dave Sciannella, trombone.

Students take private lessons twice per week for three weeks with principal players from the Festival Symphony Orchestra, participate in coached chamber music ensembles and perform with professional musicians as members of the orchestra under the direction of Maestro Stephen Gunzenhauser. “This year, our interns will play in mixed string ensembles, a cello quartet, a small brass group and as soloists,” said Morgann Davis who plays flute in the orchestra and assists with the Inspirations program.

As part of their internship, the students will collaborate on producing and performing four free Inspiration Concerts for children and senior citizens. “Many of our Inspirations concerts focus on introducing orchestral instruments to children, so most of our interns will perform as soloists to demonstrate their instruments to the audience,” said Davis.

The Inspiration Concerts to be presented by the interns include:

Monday, July 22
10 a.m., Blossburg Memorial Library, 307 Main Street, Blossburg
1 p.m., Knoxville Public Library, 112 East Main Street, Knoxville

Sunday, July 28
10 a.m. to 1 p.m. during Brunch at the Penn Wells Hotel, 62 Main Street, Wellsboro

Monday, July 29
11:30 a.m., Centerway Square, 117 Pine Street, Corning, NY

Tuesday, July 23

At 7:30 p.m. this Friday, July 19, the Endless Mountain Music Festival opens its 14th Season with Cartoons and Fantasy in Steadman Theatre on the Mansfield University campus in Mansfield.

Film clips will be projected on two big movie screens as the 62-member Festival Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Stephen Gunzenhauser, performs music from “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Frozen”; “What’s Up at the Symphony,” a medley of classical music heard in Bugs Bunny cartoons; the “Pink Panther” theme and more. Youngsters will receive a free gift. Adults will be admitted for half price if accompanied by children in costume. Adults in costume will be admitted free. All youth, 20 and under are admitted free to all festival concerts.

The music continues at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 20 with Gunzenhauser, festival founder, conducting the orchestra at the Corning Museum of Glass Auditorium in Corning. Performed will be Óscar Navarro’s “Paconchita”; Russell Peck’s “The Glory and the Grandeur” with three fast-paced percussionists playing more than 110 instruments; and the 1874 version of Tchaikovsky’s “Symphony #1 Winter Dreams.”

At 7:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, July 21-25 will be five chamber concerts.

At the first chamber concert on Sunday, July 21, Russian pianist Asiya Korepanova will perform works by German, American, Polish and Russian composers in the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre in Wellsboro. Included will be Beethoven’s “15 Variations and Fugue Eroica Op. 35”; Beach’s “Extase Op. 21, No. 2”; Chopin’s “Ballade No. 4 in F minor, Op. 52” and Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”

Monday, July 22, step back in time to enjoy the Emperor’s Dinner Music performed by the Festival String Trio featuring Hua Jin on violin, Ignacio Cuello on viola and Gita Ladd on cello at the Rockwell Museum in Corning. Works include: Strauss’ “Variations on the Bavarian Folksong Das Dirndl,” Schubert’s “Trio in B-flat Major” and Beethoven’s “String Trio in C Minor, Op. 9, No. 3.” Those with concert tickets, can attend the free, preconcert wine and cheese tasting at 6:45 p.m. by calling 570-787-7800 by this Sunday, July 21 to make reservations.

With humor, virtuosity and the unexpected, singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist Vance Gilbert will perform in the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre in Wellsboro on Tuesday, July 23. Word about his talents as an acoustic folk musician spread like wildfire, compelling Shawn Colvin to invite him to be a special guest on her 1992 Fat City tour where he took America by storm. In addition to his solo performances, Gilbert is the opener of choice for stand-up comedian Paul Reiser; the Milk Carton Kids, an American indie folk duo from California and the Subdudes, an American roots rock band from New Orleans.

On Wednesday, July 24, groove with jazz pianist Bram Wijnands and his daughter Lucy Wijnands, a jazz vocalist, at the Yoked Church at 110 Alba Street in Knoxville. “I Don’t Want to Walk Without You” from 1958 and “The Great City” by Shirley Horne from 1963 are among the songs they will perform. This concert is free.

The Endless Mountain Big Brass, featuring the orchestra’s brass section, will perform audience favorites on Thursday, July 25 at the Williamson High School Auditorium in Tioga. In their repertoire are Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man,” rock and roll from Freddie Mercury’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” to Chicago and Blood, Sweat & Tears; big band music; and music from movies like “Mary Poppins.

At 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 26, in Steadman Theatre on the Mansfield University campus, MU Choral Activities Director Peggy Dettwiler will conduct the Festival Symphony Orchestra and 16 MU Concert Choir alumni singing Ralph Vaughan Williams’ cantata, “Serenade to Music.” She will also direct the orchestra and members of the MU Concert Choir and Festival Chorus and MU Choral Academy voice students in performing “A Song of Peace’” by Jean Sibelius, arranged by Johnnie Carl. Gunzenhauser will conduct the American premier of Joachim Raff’s “Cello Concerto No. 2 in G Major” performed by the orchestra and featuring Gita Ladd on cello. Raff wrote this romantic concerto in 1850. It was overlooked and never performed in the United States until tonight.

Also on the program are Peter Boyer’s “New Beginnings,” Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring: Ballet for Martha” and Leonard Bernstein’s overture to the comic operetta “Candide.”

On July 26, Dettwiler will conduct the 62-member Festival Symphony Orchestra, community singers and members of the Mansfield University Concert Choir, Festival Chorus and high school students participating in the July 21-27 MU Choral Academy.

Rehearsals will be held nightly from 7 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 21 through Thursday, July 25 in Butler 163 on the Mansfield University campus. The dress rehearsal will be at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, July 26 with the concert to be presented that evening.

Lyme disease is a tick-borne illness. Every year since 2000, Pennsylvania has had the highest number of Lyme disease cases in the U.S. Last year was no exception. In 2018, Pennsylvania had 10,001 Lyme disease cases, according to Quest Diagnostics.

The blacklegged tick, also known as the deer tick, is the primary carrier of Lyme disease across the state, according to Penn State researchers. Learn how to avoid becoming the next victim.

Luke Dunham of Wellsboro is certified by the PA Lyme Resource Network to present its one-hour PowerPoint “DARE 2B Tick Aware” program.

DARE is an acronym. D stands for Defend yourself and property; the A for Avoid tick habitat; the R for Remember tick checks and shower; and the E for Eliminate ticks correctly.

The information included in the Dare 2B Tick Aware presentation has been approved by the Department of Health. It includes current statistics on the rates of Lyme infections across Pennsylvania and the United States; facts about tick habitats, life stages and behavior; the different species of ticks and the different types of infections they carry; and prevention techniques to avoid getting Lyme disease and co-infections. Following the DARE presentation, handouts related to it are given to participants.

“The first ‘Dare 2B Tick Aware’ presentation I gave as a newly certified instructor was to employees of Land Services Group/Cunningham Surveyors at their offices in Delmar Township on June 26,” said Dunham. “The employees consisted of surveyors who work outside and are frequently in tick habitats. They shared with me that they learned a lot from the material I presented.”

Those who can benefit the most from the presentation are members of groups and organizations that spend time outdoors and are considered to be at high risk of tick exposure. Among them are Girls Scouts; Boy Scouts; police; birders; fishermen; forestry, park and conservation district personnel; Fish, Boat and Game Commission officers; hikers, runners and bikers; public school and college students who are members of outdoor clubs and organizations, church groups, etc.

To become a certified instructor to teach Dare 2B Tick Aware, Dunham attended a PA Lyme Resource Network webinar that included a review of the curriculum and the information in the PowerPoint DARE presentation. He then had to pass a written test and successfully give the one-hour presentation to certified instructors.

Local organizations interested in scheduling a presentation of the “DARE 2B Tick Aware Program” can contact Dunham by email at or by calling (570) 404-8237.

Also to be performed are commercials written for Gehman Iron, which is sponsoring the four-day festival, and Pop’s Culture Shoppe, sponsor of “Little Orphan Annie.”

The August 8, 9, 10 and 11 performances will each run an hour and a half with an intermission. Families with younger children are encouraged to attend the Sunday program, which offers “Little Orphan Annie” and “Popeye The Sailor Man.”
