Stewart, Donna The Tudors History,
Literature- Authors,
Music
Join us as we travel through time and trace an ever-evolving musical style during the 118-year reign of England's Tudor monarchs. All the Tudors were trained in music from childhood and were accomplished lutenists, singers, and even composers. Using the framework of the Tudor dynasty - 1485 through 1603 - we present a broad range of musical styles reflecting the varied musical influences left by this musically gifted clan, all of whom employed legions of important musicians, French, Flemish, Spanish and Italian. Our samplings from the bounteous Tudor musical legacy begin with mesmerizing rondeaux from the time of Henry VII, romp through the familiar lusty fare of Henry VIII's tempestuous court, sample serene sacred music to please the devout so-called Bloody Mary, and indulge in the lush and familiar songs from Elizabeth's Golden Age.

Bromka, Sondra & John 'The Boy Who Went to Visit the North Wind' Participatory Storytelling + 'Who Has Heard the Wind' Children's Concert History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Sondra and John Bromka bring audiences on a wind-swept journey to 'long ago and far away' with the telling of this fine traditional tale. Look forward to an energetic tandem storytelling performance that is underscored with live music on Celtic harp, enriched with historic authenticity, and alive with abundant participation that is well suited to audiences of all ages. A tale of wonder, magic, and heroism, the story unfolds when a poor boy's meal is unwittingly blown away, taken to the four corners of the earth by the all-powerful North Wind, and cannot be returned. In exchange, a magic tablecloth, magic donkey, and magic stick are three marvelous gifts offered by the Wind. But in the end, the most important gift of all is surely the North Wind's sage advice: 'All you have to do is keep your eyes & ears open.' As in the best of traditional folktales, there is the timeless appeal of a thought provoking theme. Here, justice & fairness are of universal concern to young children. And they will enjoy their favorite storytelling elements: patterns and repetition, personification, and especially, the wondrous and curious ways of 'long ago & far away.'
