Native Plants and Other Things Birds Look for in the Landscape (Virtual)

Native Plants and Other Things Birds Look for in the Landscape, and Why They Need to Be There With Joyann Cirigliano Senior Coordinator of Bird-Friendly Communities, Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center.

Many property owners and landscapers want to help the planet by adding native plants to their managed landscapes, but there can be some concern—certain native plants can look downright sloppy, which makes some of our two-legged neighbors rather unhappy. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If well-mannered plants with excellent habitat services are chosen, we can have both aesthetically. pleasing properties, and excellent environmental services. By blending aesthetics and ecology, with thoughtful consideration toward plant selection, habitat factors and gardening practices, landscapes that are both attractive and environmentally functional can be created. Please bring questions, curiosity, and an open mind.

Book Discussion with Lauren Glatt The Final Girl Support Group (In Person) by Grady Hendrix

In horror movies, the final girls are the ones left standing when the credits roll. They made it through the worst night of their lives…but what happens after?  Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre. For more than a decade, she’s been meeting with five other final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, working to put their lives back together. Then one woman misses a meeting, and their worst fears are realized—someone knows about the group and is determined to rip their lives apart again, piece by piece. Grady Hendrix’s novel is a fast-paced, frightening, and wickedly humorous thriller.

Participants are encouraged to obtain ebook and audio versions through Libby or pick up a print copy at the Library beginning May 1st.

Juneteenth (Virtual) Presented by Professor Bill Thierfelder

In June of 2021, President Joseph Biden signed a bill making June 19th—known as Juneteenth—a federal holiday. Although Juneteenth has been celebrated in African-American communities since its inception over a century and a half ago, many Americans only learned about it recently. This program explores the remarkable history behind this holiday, a day that celebrates the triumph of freedom over the unspeakable evils of slavery.

Dancing in the Dark: A History of Dance in the Movies (Hybrid) with Brian Rose

The movies and dancing are a partnership born in heaven. From its very beginnings, the new medium of motion pictures turned toward dance as one of best ways to showcase its unique ability to make movement come alive. And through the decades, it’s been dancing on the big screen that has provided some of the most ecstatic moments in film history—whether it’s Fred Astaire gliding on the ceiling in Royal Wedding, the Nicholas Brothers leaping down a staircase in Stormy Weather, Moira Shearer pirouetting through the dreamscape of The Red Shoes, or John Travolta burning up the dance floor in Saturday Night Fever. Illustrated with more than 75 video clips, this talk will survey 130 years of thrilling movie dance performances and demonstrate the extraordinary ways cinema brought dance to life.

Programs shown as “Hybrid” may be presented in person or virtually in our Community Room.  Viewers may attend either in person or virtually.

From its very beginnings, the new medium of motion pictures turned toward dance as one of best ways to showcase its unique ability to make movement come alive. And through the decades, it’s been dancing on the big screen that has provided some of the most ecstatic moments in film history—whether it’s Fred Astaire gliding on the ceiling in Royal Wedding, the Nicholas Brothers leaping down a staircase in Stormy Weather, Moira Shearer pirouetting through the dreamscape of The Red Shoes, or John Travolta burning up the dance floor in Saturday Night Fever. Illustrated with more than 75 video clips, this talk will survey 130 years of thrilling movie dance performances and demonstrate the extraordinary ways cinema brought dance to life.

Programs shown as “Hybrid” may be presented in person or virtually in our Community Room.  Viewers may attend either in person or virtually.

Cabaret (Virtual) with John Kenrick

While the contemporary American cabaret came into being in the 1970s, its traditions reach back more than a hundred years. A quick look at that tradition reveals a great deal about the social and cultural changes that marked the 20th Century. Since our primary focus is on cabaret's connection to musical theatre, film and television, we will concentrate on cabaret as it developed in New York City -- becoming a crucial training ground for writers and performers.

Programs shown as “Hybrid” may be presented in person or virtually in our Community Room.  Viewers may attend either in person or virtually.

Leonard Bernstein: The Maestro and His Music (Virtual) with Prof. Jeffrey Norwood

Leonard Bernstein found his “voice” in the early 1940s and projected the sound of urban and urbane America from the period of World War II to the fall of the Berlin Wall and Soviet communism. An American conductor, composer, and pianist, Bernstein was noted for his accomplishments in classical and popular music, flamboyant conducting style, and pedagogic flair.

Dubbing Vocals in Hollywood (Virtual) Presented by Richard Knox

Dubbing is a  post-production  process used in  filmmaking  and  video production  in which additional or supplementary recordings are lip-synced and "mixed" with original production sound to create the finished soundtrack.  Hollywood musicals have a long history of employing professional vocalists to dub the singing voices of actors and actresses who were hired mainly for the acting ability and box office appeal.  During this program we will have a chance to view several prominent examples and watch an extended interview with Marni Nixon whose singing voice took the place of such prominent stars as Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood, and Audrey Hepburn.

Broadway Overtures (Hybrid) with Richard Knox

The idea of using a symphonic introduction for a musical theater production had its roots centuries earlier when composers of grand opera decided to begin their works with a collection of musical motifs that allowed audiences to become acquainted with melodies that followed once the curtain was raised. This musical “foreshadowing” became a key ingredient in productions such as “Showboat”, “Oklahoma!”, “Guys and Dolls”, “My Fair Lady”, and “Gypsy”. The act of weaving one song into another within a narrow timeframe is an art unto itself and allows the composer to work independently of the lyricist to create an often-underappreciated component of the show.

During this program we will have an opportunity to watch symphonic orchestras perform the overtures to several classic Broadway musicals including the ones mentioned above. Be prepared for a wonderful experience reliving a host of melodies that have become an essential part of American music.

The idea of using a symphonic introduction for a musical theater production had its roots centuries earlier when composers of grand opera decided to begin their works with a collection of musical motifs that allowed audiences to become acquainted with melodies that followed once the curtain was raised. This musical “foreshadowing” became a key ingredient in productions such as “Showboat”, “Oklahoma!”, “Guys and Dolls”, “My Fair Lady”, and “Gypsy”. The act of weaving one song into another within a narrow timeframe is an art unto itself and allows the composer to work independently of the lyricist to create an often-underappreciated component of the show.

During this program we will have an opportunity to watch symphonic orchestras perform the overtures to several classic Broadway musicals including the ones mentioned above. Be prepared for a wonderful experience reliving a host of melodies that have become an essential part of American music.
