  • The Choral Society of the Hamptons will inaugurate its 70th anniversary season on Sunday at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church with performances at 3 and 5:30 p.m. Ottorino Respighi’s “Laud to the Nativity” will be the centerpiece of the program, which will also include shorter selections, among them medieval English carols, a Venetian polychoral work by Gabrieli, and Christmas music by composers including Vulpius and Praetorius.
  • The Quogue Library will show “Small Treasures,” an exhibition of small and intimate works by nine East End artists. A reception will be held on Dec. 12 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Ille Arts will reopen in the spring at a new location across the street at 171 Main Street.
  • The Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival, made up this year of 17 feature-length films and 7 shorts, will open its four-day run at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor today.
  • The diminutive white frame house on Union Street in Sag Harbor is known both as the 1693 house and the “five-times-moved house.” Judith Auchincloss, who purchased it in 2010 from the tennis pro Guillermo Vilas, described it to a recent visitor as “sort of magical.” A real estate broker in New York City who has been a longtime summer resident here, she owned a house in Bridgehampton until 2002.
  • Every year, South Fork artists garner new and increased attention at the various fairs and events that make up Miami’s Art Basel week. Whether in the grand booths of the Miami Beach Convention Center, in a funky satellite in Wynwood or North Beach, in a family museum in an old warehouse, in a pool cabana, or even in a hotel room, exhibitors from around the corner or around the world bring international exposure to our regional faves and allow us to see how they measure up to the giants of the current and historical marketplace.
  • ArtSolar will hold a reception and exhibition of work by nine East End artists on Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m. at 12 Koala Lane in East Hampton. Take a Thanksgiving ArtWalk on Saturday afternoon from 1 to 5. Twenty-five galleries from Southampton to Montauk will participate in the self-guided tour, and many will accept donations of food and/or money for local food pantries.
  • P­leasant Lane in East Hampton Village is an unassuming cul-de-sac off Newtown Lane between Mary’s Marvelous and the Suffolk County National Bank. Not the kind of street where you’d expect to find an alchemist at work in a studio hidden by dense privet, transforming molten beeswax, resin, and pigment into thickly painted surfaces from which she excavates an expansive range of swirling, mutating forms.
  • Artists and musicians are invited to bring their work down to the Woodbine Collection in Montauk on Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. The artwork will hang until Dec. 5. The Peter Marcelle Project in Southampton will open “Susan Ecker: Players, Places” with a reception on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m.
  • The Springs Community Theater Company will present “The Wizard of Oz” in seven performances at Guild Hall over the next two weekends, starting tomorrow at 7 p.m. The production will feature the music and lyrics created for the original MGM motion picture by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg and the book by John Kane, adapted in 1987 for the Royal Shakespeare Company in London.
  • The circus came to the Watermill Center on Saturday. There were acrobatics, juggling, and feats of strength and balance, all of which left the audience awestruck. But because Sweden’s Cirkus Cirkor is a contemporary circus with roots in experimental dance, theater, film, music, and visual art, the group’s open rehearsal of a work in progress was a mesmerizing, haunting, and entertaining evening quite unlike the circus most of us grew up with.
