What’s Going On...
Mark Lamb Dance at Metro Baptist Church
Saturday, May 10, 2014 — 7:00-10:00 pm
Mark Lamb Dance presents
Seasonal Saturday Sanctuary Salon Series — “On a String and a Prayer”
Metro Baptist Church
410 West 40th street (9th / 10th Aves)
A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, N, R, 7 to Times Square 42nd Street
The Salon will feature violist, Leanne Darling, cellist Loren Dempster, and violinist, Helen Yee. Helen, Leanne and Loren are from the acclaimed Trio Triticalli, known for “going where no string trio has gone before!” The dancers and musicians will explore ideas that blur the lines between dancer and musician, and which comes first-movement or music? In the tradition of Mark Lamb Dance the musicians often times put down their instruments and dance, or sometimes, even dance while they play.
Other performers will include dancers and choreographers Edwardo Brito, Madison Krekel, Mark Lamb, Sarah Pope, and Jennifer Wilenta.
The evening will consist of three performance sets interwoven with breaks for wine and homemade food, conversation and participation. Held in a church where “all are welcome”, come experience the warm fellowship that makes Metro Baptist a “home” for Mark Lamb Dance, and a special place for all who enter.
Come celebrate Spring and find out why The New York Times has called these salons “a quintessential New York experience.” Be a part of the party as a church just off Times Square transforms itself into an elegant setting for nourishing both the spirit and stomach.

New York, NY— GrowNYC’s 57th Street Greenmarket is open on Saturdays beginning April 19 and Wednesdays beginning May 7. Long a fixture of Balsley Park, located at 57th Street and 9th Avenue, the market provides residents of Hell’s Kitchen and Midtown West with the freshest local vegetables, fruits, baked goods and other seasonal offerings until December 20. The Saturday market also offers food scrap compost collection and textile recycling during certain hours. Look for free cooking demonstrations, raffles, school tours, and family-friendly activities at market all season long.
GrowNYC’s Greenmarkets work to preserve local farmland, while ensuring that New Yorkers across all five boroughs have access to fresh, healthy food grown right here in our region. A central component of Greenmarket’s mission and operations is product integrity: everything sold at market is 100% farmer grown, produced, caught, or foraged. In addition to operating farmers markets, Greenmarket is working to improve the health of all New Yorkers with a suite of food access strategies aimed at getting the healthiest, freshest food into the hands that need it most.
