On Sunday, February 19, 2012, Arts On the Mountain at Trinity Episcopal Church, Mt. Pocono, PA, will present a music and art event beginning with a reception for the artists at  3 PM. The Flute Choir of the Poconos  will perform a concert of varied works, beginning at 4 PM, and author Robert McMahon will offer selected readings from his new book “Wandering Thoughts”. Copies of the book, now in its second printing, will also be available for purchase, signed by the author. The Art Gallery in the Parish Hall will feature Photography by Frank Fiore. A suggested donation of $10. ($5. students) helps support programming by Arts On the Mountain.

The Pocono Flute Society was founded in 2010 to promote the study and performance of flute music in northeastern Pennsylvania. The group serves flutists of all ages and abilities. It publishes a quarterly newsletter which is mailed to area high schools, private music teachers, and college flute professors in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. The society also sponsors a Flute Choir of about 20 members that presents concerts and recitals in the Pocono region. The annual event is the Pocono Flute Festival, which will be held this year on May 5, 2012. It includes a Young Artist Competition with monetary scholarship awards, master classes and a concert.

Rob McMahon lives in Mount Pocono, PA, with his partner of over twenty-three years, Frank Fiore. A native Staten Islander, Rob relocated to the Poconos in 1988, and continues to commute to Manhattan on a regular basis. This offers him “the best of both worlds,” allowing him “the energy of the city while retreating to the peacefulness of the mountains.” His book, “Wandering Thoughts”, offers unique insights into our daily experiences, in the form of meditations which reflect peace, faith, tranquility and spiritual balance, as well as Rob’s caring and understanding nature.

Frank Fiore was born in Brooklyn, where his interest in photography began at an early age when he received a small pocket camera as a gift. He continues to document his own life and experiences, and upon transitioning to the Poconos twenty-five years ago, shifted his focus toward nature subjects, as well as foreign travel. His love of nature and the animal kingdom grants him the patience to wait for the perfect opportunity to capture moments that he says “would otherwise be lost in time, forever”. He considers himself an “amateur” photographer, in the best sense of the word: following the French meaning, “amateur” = “lover of”. His wish is that his photography may inspire love of the subject in those who see it, and hopes that the beauty which lives around us will make us pause in appreciation of life’s blessings.

Arts On the Mountain has been presenting visual and performing arts events at Trinity Episcopal Church since 1988. Trinity Church is located on Trinity Hill Road, a mile south of Mt. Pocono, just off the southbound lanes of Rte 611. Call the church office at 570-839-9376 for further information or directions.
