Lasdon Park and Arboretum garden in Somers will soon be getting a makeover that not only will give it an aesthetic boost but also upgrade its filtering power to cleanse storm water runoff from a nearby parking lot, County Executive George Latimer recently announced. A rain garden at the park was built years ago to handle storm water runoff from the parking lot, but it was not formally landscaped during its construction. As a result, a hodgepodge of plants now encircles the garden, hiding much of it from view and choking its basin with unwanted vegetation. The rain garden will largely be re-planted during Pitch in for Parks Day Sat., Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Thanks to funding from the Westchester County Soil and Water Conservation District, the County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation will be purchasing plants and seed mixes to reinvigorate the garden, using largely volunteer help. An interpretive sign will be installed following the refurbishment to educate the public about the benefits of rain gardens and native plants.

New York Opera Conservatory is presenting a free virtual opera: Mozart’s Don Giovanni (A Pandemic-Nightmare Comedy). The Conservatory makes the pandemic the backdrop of an opera, and some of its strange and unanticipated consequences a part of the production! Since Mozart’s Don Giovanni (a dark tragedy) had already been chosen by the Conservatory for its summer program, it was totally reimagined as a hilarious comedy taking place during a pandemic, and created entirely by relying on internet connections and cell phones. The entire production was staged, filmed, and edited without any of the cast and technical crew leaving home. Every special effect offered by phones was used throughout the production, from Snapchat filters to tinder messaging to turning the tenor aria “Il mio tesoro” into a home cooking show--showing us just how bizarre and surreal the world has become. Production glitches, similar to what you see every day in the media where programming is home-based, are a major part of the charm and fun of the work.

This production is offered free of charge to the public; however, any donation large or small will help to make up for some of the essential revenues lost as a result of the pandemic. Make a donation at www.TaconicOpera.org.

Don Giovanni is available on YouTube to watch at your leisure and as often as you like at https://youtu.be/Mwa428_ZJpI.
