    Youth in Arts ’Til Dawn

    A Cappella music is singing without instrumental accompaniment. It means "in the style of the Sistine Chapel," where services used choirs with no instruments. As time has passed, A Cappella music has broadened its subject matter and style to include all genres of music. In this day and age A Cappella is more a choice of instrumentation, or lack thereof, rather than a style of music. Youth in Arts' A Cappella ensemble `Til Dawn will perform a mix of contemporary and classic songs from the Pop, R&B, Rock, Folk, Gospel and Jazz traditions. Depending upon questions asked, students may learn about music (chords and keys) or about arranging, but the real impact of the performance is encouraging students to pursue their own goals. `Til Dawn celebrates youth voices and the value of the arts, fostering positive messages about meaningful social issues and inspiring children of all ages.

    A Museum of One's Own: Small Museums Superb Collections in Europe

    We will explore art museums seldom visited by AMerican travelers learning about the collectors as well as their passions in art.  In most cases the museums were residences first, museums later.  In Paris: the Jacquemart-Andre, the Cluny, the Musee Conde at Chantilly and the Musee Marmottan.  In London: the Wallace Collection, The Courtauld, Kenwood House and the Sir John Soane Museum.  We will visit hidden masterpieces in Venice, Milan, and Rome and then go north to Winterthur, Switzerland, Cologne  and the incomparable Lenbach House in Munich.   Instructor, Kerrin Meis, MA

    Geography of Hope Conference:

    Ancestors & The Land—

    Our Past, Present & Future

     

    As native people here in West Marin and throughout the world have taught us, we can best care for the land by knowing its history, by cherishing its stories, and by actively working to protect it. GOH hopes to stimulate a conversation honoring ancestral connections to this and other landscapes—whether Native American, European, African, Asian, Hispanic, or elsewhere—that will lead to dialogues between generations and cultures to help us reconnect to place and restore balance to Mother Earth. Conference includes field trips to nearby farms, ranchlands, and Point Reyes National Seashore as well as three panel discussions during which authors, activists, and other participants exchange stories about ancestry, culture, community, land, food, and immigration. We’ll try to articulate how future stories—those that will be told by our descendants—depend in large part upon our actions today. For cost and other information, go to gohconference.org. Pre-registration required.

    The Gods are Us: Classical Greek Myth and Story

    Our Ancestors write the myths and stories that shape how we see the world.  In the European tradition, most of the allegories for our our minds and hearts were given to us by the Greeks.  Let us remember the myths of Zues, Athena, Aphrodite, Aplollo, Hades Demeter, the tales of Homer and Ovid.  We will consider the uses of myth in art, and follow it into the dark burrows of our subconscious.  Monsters, stupid gods, ravishing women, ravished men, lustful rivers, and impossibilities that could not be more true.

    THE ALBANY JAZZ BIG BAND under the guidance of Musical Director and Conductor, Bob Levenson, presents a clear, swinging, and modern big band sound. This year’s performance at the Dance Palace will be the seventh annual dance concert and picnic. The band plays regularly at other community events—all around the East Bay. The musicians mostly hail from the Berkeley-Albany-El Cerrito corridor. Repertoire consists of classic big band swing by the great bandleaders and arrangers; blues, bossa nova and latin, bebop and post bebop music of the 60’s and later.  The band plays great danceable music, and features fine local jazz vocalists and instrumental soloists.
