Media- Other,
Music
“Anything Goes” ~ A Tribute to Cole Porter Known for his sophisticated wit and playful style, Cole Porter was unique among the Great American composers. Born to wealth, his apprenticeship took place not in Tin Pan Alley but in the playgrounds of Europe. In his lyrics and melodies he fixed the smartness and cynicism, the lack of inhibitions in speech and behavior, and the the outright iconoclasm that characterized the 1920s. In their inimitable style, Sonny & Perley present a unique selection of music from his vast library of popular songs.

Carpenter, Margot Learning to Like the World Life Skills- Other,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
In three workshops, teachers Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy show children that their deepest desire is to like the world on an honest basis, and that everything--from a flower to mathematics to their mothers--can be used to like the world. Young people learn this big, important fact--that they can honestly like the world, even as they may be critical of bad things in it, because its structure is sensible, even beautiful, a oneness of opposites. They're encouraged to love knowledge, and through these classes they learn to respect one another more and become kinder to family, friends, and people of other cultures. Class 1: Books Tell You: the World & You are a deep and surprising team; Class 2: What Will Make a Person Truly Strong; or Martin Luther King & the Children's March; Class 3: Do we Want to Be Like Music? Ken Kimmelman's award winning anti-prejudice film "Brushstrokes" is shown.

RiverJack uses “loop” (live recording) technology to achieve a full band sound by layering percussion, bass, acoustic guitars, harmonica,trumpet and vocals. During a 60- to 75-minute session, participants will explore the craft of songwriting by writing and recording a song that is uniquely their own, based on a theme or curriculum-related topic. They will work cooperatively to form a musical composition by: brainstorming ideas, writing lyrics, composing a melody, and gaining personal experience with the creative process. The song is then rehearsed and recorded, and the library will receive a CD/mp3 containing the participants’ song.
