From The Jazz Singer to A Star Is Born: A History of the Movie Musical

As soon as movies could talk, they began to sing and dance—and musicals quickly became among the most popular film genres in America. Over the next nine decades, the movie musical would evolve to embrace every type of performance, from operatta to rock and soul, from tap to ballet, and every type of format, from Broadway hits to original creations from composers like Cole Porter, George Gershwin, and Irving Berlin. Presenter Brian Rose (Professor Emeritus at Fordham University) will look at the fascinating history of this unique format, and include more than thirty excerpts, featuring artists like Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, the Nicholas Brothers, Busby Berkeley, Gene Kelly, and the Beatles.

Registration required, click here to register. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Finding Your Voice

Iris Jackson, author of the Telling Trails Book Series, comes to us on her book tour discovering Telling Trails communities from the East Coast to writers, creatives, and influencers like You!  Since Telling Trails is “Your Story, Your Experience. In pictures, poetry and prose”…This workshop is designed especially for YOU! 

This special pair of workshops is designed to involve YA (Young Adult) readers/writers/creators/ and those searching for their storytelling voice. During our sessions, Iris will share experiences from her Telling Trails photos, poems and writings, providing time for comments and conversation with the goal of students creating and sharing their own narratives. 

Utilizing Telling Trails as a vehicle, participants will have time and space to listen, share, write, and join in conversation about their communications.  After some shorter writing & sharing  sessions, storytellers will have the opportunity to focus on their chosen themes to develop over the next week for session two.  At that time, we will have additional space for presentations, conversation, and feedback towards creating their own Telling Trails narrative.  

Telling Trails workshop “Teammates”  will have the opportunity for works to be included in upcoming BLOGs on the TellingTrials.org website along with possible inclusion in the Telling Trails Tour Book Series.

For ages 12-18, registration required.
