1st Conversation: American Creed Film and Discussion, Saturday, February 16 at 2:00 at the Senior Center.

Facilitated by Lucy Nalpathanchil host of "Where We Live" at WNPR CT Public Radio.

The film is American Creed, a PBS documentary which explores America’s ideals and identity.  Lucy Nalpathanchil, a radio journalist from WNPR and the host of its popular talk show, “Where We Live,” will facilitate the discussion.  The library received a grant from The American Library Association (ALA), in partnership with Citizen Film and the National Writing Project to host this and a series of other programs exploring this issue.  The Friends of the Kent Memorial Library have also provided funds for the programs.

In the documentary, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy, civic entrepreneur Eric Liu, moveon.org founder Joan Blades, Tea Party Patriots founder Mark Meckler, Chicago Cubs Manager Joe Maddon and other citizen-activists come together from remarkably different perspectives to explore the idea of a unifying American creed. Grantees may choose to program the feature-length documentary and/or a suite of short films, including exclusive content not available on PBS.

        There are 35 spaces available.

misc_none.png 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Saturday, February 23 at 2:00 at the Senior Center

A discussion by Music Historian, Jeffrey Engel

When “West Side Story” opened in London a critic wrote “This show begins a new age in theatre.” Join Jeffrey Engel as he discusses the creation of “West Side Story” and plays excerpts from the West Side Story CD and DVD.  The program will be held at the Suffield Senior Center, 145 Bridge Street on Saturday, February 23 at 2 p.m.  Bernstein’s fourth musical certainly was ground-breaking. This modern version of “Romeo and Juliet” was no musical comedy fantasy, but rather a realistic tragedy with major characters killed at the end of each act. Never had a musical integrated so much dance which was also crucial to the story-line. Add to that a rhythmically and harmonically rich score and the team of Sondheim Robbins and Bernstein produced a revolutionary work for Broadway. 

Mr. Engel is a graduate of Ithaca College where he majored in cello and music history. He continued musicological studies at the University of Connecticut. Mr. Engel lived in Paris for fourteen years where he played with the Paris Opera and other orchestras.  He is a contributor to “The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians”. Presently, he is a cello instructor and presents music lectures throughout Connecticut.
