Castleton Festival, Culpeper Baptist Church, Jewell Tone Music, and Windmore Foundation for the Arts join together and are pleased to present a workshop by Dietlinde Turban Maazel who is the co-founder, Artistic Director, and CEO of the Castleton Festival. The vocal and drama improvisation workshop for youth will take place on Saturday April 16, 2016 at 2 pm. The workshop, for ages 13 to 20, will be held at Culpeper Baptist Church located at 318 S West Street in Culpeper, Virginia. Utilizing fundamental acting principles, and improvisation, including singing improv with piano accompaniment, the workshop will concentrate on the unique potential each singer-actor has while striving to develop the physical, vocal, emotional, and intellectual skills that enable them to work freely, joyfully and convincingly. In 2009, together with her late husband Maestro Lorin Maazel, Dietlinde Turban Maazel founded the Castleton Festival and continues her dedication to music education there and for collaborative projects. She is currently on faculty at Rutgers University where she created a new course “Acting for Singers” for the Mason Gross School of the Arts. Due to the generosity of all the collaborative partners and Dietlinde Turban Maazel donating her time, tuition for the April 16 workshop is reduced to $15.00 per student. Space is limited and a maximum of 20 youth participants will be admitted to the workshop. Some prior acting and vocal experience preferred.

Millie Lane, who passed away in 2010, was a prominent Culpeper multi-media artist who enjoyed creating with oils, watercolors, acrylics, inks, mixed media and collage. She was quoted as saying “I have been painting in various media all my life but mainly since 1970, learning and teaching as I go. I love plein air painting in watercolors the best so I can feel what I am painting.” Millie received many awards on her paintings and had often exhibited her work in Culpeper, Fauquier, and Orange counties.

Lane-Mille-ArtistMillie received many awards on her paintings and had often exhibited
her work in Culpeper, Fauquier, and Orange counties.

Millie was born December 6, 1938 in Trenton, New Jersey, became a registered nurse and her 40 year career included working at Culpeper Hospital, and as an operating room nurse at Fauquier Hospital. She was a member of Brushstrokes Gallery of Fredericksburg, Fredericksburg Center for Creative Arts, and had works displayed in old town Fredericksburg, as well as The Arts Center in Orange County, and in Culpeper at the Village Frame and Gallery, Depot, and Library. She was an active member and teacher of the Artists of Windmore Foundation for the Arts and The Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts. Millie also enjoyed being outdoors, farming, horses and being at the beach which all influenced her choice of content for artwork.

Windmore Legacy-The Art of Millie Lane Son of Mille Lane and Wimdmore ED Shake HandsWindmore’s executive director Debra Smyers extends a thank you to Rick Lane.

Millie passed away on December 4, 2010, however, her art and memory lives on. “Legacy – The Art of Millie Lane” exhibition, free to the public, is open during intermission at all State Theatre events, as well as one hour before films shown and two hours prior to live performances from February 6 through March 20, 2016.
