TESTING AND THE ART OF THINKING (DVD)

Come watch this important film about testing.  Parents and students understand the energy and emotions conjured by the SAT, which is not only part of the college admissions process, but also a true rite of passage for teenagers in the United States. Most of us never forget our score, or how we feel about it. This film endeavors to support individuals—especially young people—by examining what the test measures and means, and asking a range of visionaries, admissions professionals, and interested parties to discuss the use and ramifications of the test.

DVD is 1 hour, 25 minutes. For more information visit the documentary's website: https://www.thetestdoc.org/

SUNDAY PROGRAM:UKULELE SCRAMBLE

Join us for our Februrary Sunday Program to hear Ukulele Scramble perform! True to their name, Ukulele Scramble plays a lot of mashups. When they're not twisting styles from across the decades — and centuries — into knots, they're playing ridiculous segues, and  a repertoire that was definitely never meant to be played on the uke. When's the last time you heard ukulele versions of classical compositions by Charles Ives or Amy Beach? 

This is free and open to the public!
