Music
Chip Richter’s Young Songwriters Workshop is an exciting and fun journey through the craft of writing songs. Students will explore the four elements of song writing, the form and foundation of a song, and discover what makes a lyric work. Learning how to use hooks, rhymes, and words that sing, students will have the opportunity to begin writing their own songs right away. The students will listen to songs, sing songs, analyze and diagram songs, all in a very fun, interactive way. The Young Songwriters Workshop works well as a plug-in to your local school’s English and or Language Arts course study. Many teachers will use the Young Songwriters Workshop to culminate a section on journaling, poetry, or creative writing. In the end students will have lots of fun, discover the magic of words, and learn something about what's in a song and perhaps, what's in their heart.

Sonny and Perley, Sonny and Perley Brazilian Romance - The Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Brazilian Romance - Bossa Nova and the Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim From the very first song, this concert enchants and delights. Audiences are brought back to the 1960's sound of Sergio Mendez & Brazil 66, reminiscing and singing along to The Girl From Ipanema and many more of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s evergreens. Sonny & Perley together with world-multi-percussionist Brian Melick and a bassist capture the essence of the sultry romance of bossa nova. Perley effectively draws the audience in with both English and Portuguese interpretations of lyrics. You don’t have to be Brazilian to love this concert; just in the mood for a night of romance, captivating rhythm and to be transported to some place warm and tropical! The Post Star review says “To their Brazilian and American fans alike, Sonny & Perley have a style that is as irresistible and authentic as the Ipanema girl herself.”
