Setting Your Voice Free with Linda Cardillo
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Your writer’s voice is as distinctive as your fingerprint or the pattern of your iris. It is an expression of 'you' in a deeply personal and visceral way. But as writers, we often flounder trying to achieve a distinctive voice. Rather than seeking to capture your voice, come discover how to set it free. Explore the roles perception, memory, and emotional honesty play in developing and refining your unique voice as a writer.


Join author Linda Cardillo for this 10-week workshop.

Bach and the Baroque
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Rob Humberston returns to Storrs for a fascinating 8-week study on Bach and the Baroque. The Baroque Era in music covers the period from around 1600 to 1750, following the Renaissance and preceding the Classical period. Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) is generally recognized as the leading composer of the era, and in addition to his genius, we will explore many of the composers of a variety of national styles that define the times. Beginning with Claudio Monteverdi as the bridge between the Italian Renaissance and the emerging Baroque, we will hear examples of music of both well known and less well-known composers from Bohemia, England, France, Italy, and Germany.

Recordings of both sacred and secular and choral and instrumental music will demonstrate the enormous variety of forms reflecting both the genius of the composers and the importance of music during these times. Drawing from an extensive collection of recordings, listening will focus on those of special merit primarily based on historically-informed performance practices by leading artists in the field.

Spring is a great time to listen to Baroque music with its several key popular and important works influenced by the season. We hope you’ll find this eight-week program pleasurable and informative. Please join us.
