Bezrodnov, Vitaliy From Russia with Music - Award Winning Trio Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
“Moscow Nights” is an exciting, versatile trio of world recognized, prize- winning musicians from Russia. In a little over two years, they have already established themselves as one of the fastest rising folk groups in the U.S. These classically trained artists first took Western Europe by storm and now have brought their dazzling, toe-tapping music to North America. The repertoire is centered on masterpieces of Russian folklore and represents the diversity of the culture, ranging from gently humorous songs, to elaborate lyrical suites, to pulsating dance numbers. Russian folk music expresses the national character – outwardly reserved and cool but brimming with vigor, mischievousness and vibrancy inside. Their lively program presents an authentic picture of Russian folk traditions and culture. Lilting Balalaikas, dynamic Bayan Accordion, unique Trashotky & Loshky, humorous Dances and superb Vocals combine for an exhilarating and educational performance for audiences of all ages!

Brown, John John New York Photosongs History,
Media- Photography,
Music
Award winning songwriter John John Brown has set out to educate and entertain with his imaginative new project “New York Photosongs”. At the heart of this exploration are six handcrafted folk songs that tell the amazing true stories behind some of New York State’s most iconic and obscure photographs. “Conversations Atop a Skyscraper” takes the listener up high beside the grizzled New York City ironworkers of the Great Depression, while “Queen of the Mist” brings us to Annie Edson Taylor’s 1901 plummet over Niagara Falls in a barrel. The amusing “Cardiff Giant Hoax” sends the audience across the farms of Central New York in 1869 where science and religion collide in bizarre fashion, while the humorous “Georgie” gives us a peek at the infamous Lake George Monster. Keep your eyes peeled and you may even walk down the vermine filled alleyways of early 1900’s New York City and feel the “Rat Catcher Blues” or perhaps stumble into Times Square on VJ Day and see the “Kissing Sailor”. Armed with his guitar, 4x5 foot photographs, and 15 years as a public school educator, John John Brown shines a light on some of the most interesting New Yorkers who’ve walked before us.

Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Dancing With Horses Music,
Nature,
Performing Arts
This program is an introduction to the art of dressage, as performed by the Spanish Riding School and Lippizaner Stallions of Austria. Participants will learn dance moves that mimick the moves of the horses, and can practice them in a simulated dressage arena. They will learn moves such as the side pass, pirouette, flying changes, piaffe and passage. The history of the art will be taught using Margeurite Henry's book: The White Stallion of Lippiza. Students will be allowed to perform a KUR using classical music at the end of the program. Dressage is the art of teaching horses to dance in harmony with themselves. It was originally developed by the Greek General Xenophon, as a means to train horses for war. Today it is performed both as an Olympic sport in the summer games and by those who wish to train their horses in the higher arts. The class will be conducted as a ballet class in a flat open area of the library. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions to be added to my live booking link. This program is suitable for the 2019 summer reading program.
