Multi-Culti Rhythm and Tap

Teacher: Max Pollak (
Day/Time: Monday, 7:00 PM (EDT)
Dates: November 14, November 28, December 5, December 12

Find out more about the roots of rhythm and tap dance, two beautiful and defining pillars of African American cultural heritage. This history travels through jungles and deserts, and crosses oceans.  The journey leads from sticks and voices to hips and feet, from drums to trumpets and turntables, platinum records and movie screens. It connects mythology and storytelling with music, and dance.  Today, the legacy of this beat permeates all popular American culture. Sail with me – All aboard!


Women Composers – From the Parlor to Broadway

Teacher: Charlotte Surkin
Day/Time: Tuesday, 7:00 PM (EDT)
Dates: November 15, November 29, December 6, December 13

Historically it was perfectly acceptable for women to be prima donnas on the operatic stage, but to find their place as composers alongside their male counterparts was not acceptable.

Listen to some of the most beautiful songs composed by female composers who often had to struggle to get their works published.  We will hear music by Amy Beach, Lili Boulanger, Fanny Mendelssohn, Liza Lehman, Alma Mahler, Clara Schumann, and Tony award winner Jeanine Tesori.
