   2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story  
   

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.

   4:30 PM  -  6:30 PM Award-winning film Bag It  
   

Award-winning film Bag It at the Second Baptist Church

 

This documentary is the first in a series of free programs on current environmental issues presented by The Second Baptist Church in collaboration with the Kent Memorial Library and the local chapter of the Sierra Club.  It will be shown on Sunday, March 17 at 4:30 p.m. at the Fellowship Hall, Second Baptist Church on 100 North Main Street. Childcare services are available and there is ample parking behind the church. Popcorn will be provided.

 

Bag It follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he tries to make sense of our dependence on plastic bags. Although his quest starts out small, Jeb soon learns that plastic waste effects oceans, rivers, and ultimately our health.   The consumption of plastic particles can disrupt the endocrine glands, cause cancer, diabetes, autism, attention deficit disorder, obesity, and infertility.  

 

The average American uses about 500 plastic bags each year, for about twelve minutes each. This single-use mentality has led to the formation of a floating island of plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean more than twice the size of Texas. Cities including Washington, DC and San Francisco, as well as some in Ireland, Italy and China have curbed plastic use.
