Don White

April 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Buttonwood Tree, 605 Main Street
Middletown, CT 06457 United States
+ Google Map
$18

There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has survived and thrived for twenty-five years, bringing his audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page. He is a storyteller-comedian-author-troubadour-folk singer-songwriter. He is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” Best to just sort him under “Don White.” Don’s approach to music is a weird, unique blend. If he just played folk music, it would be a handy label. But he has invented his own genre with a mix of humor and powerful songwriting. White’s arc as a writer and performer has taken him from his industrial hometown of Lynn, Ma across the country as hitchhiker, through Boston’s comedy clubs and coffeehouses, and onto the stage with greats like Christine Lavin, Arlo Guthrie, Taj Mahal, Ritchie Havens, Patty Larkin, Bill Morrissey, Tom Rush, and Louden Wainright III. At every point, White has been the ultimate observer, infusing his work with his experiences as a husband, a father, a seeker, and a joker. Don White's Website

By the end of the class, students will be able to use their bodies and voices to start to create characters. While the emphasis of the class will focus on developing skills and not on a final performance, family and friends are invited to the last class to see students present a short script/ share day. Each session will have a theme. Themes will be announced during the first day of class! This class will cover: characters, emotions, tableau, props, setting, stage directions, pantomime, musicals, and themes.

Hartford, CT 06103 United States

The Hartford Jazz Society and Hartford Public Library are partnering to present Jazz 101, an 8-week course designed as a beginner-level introduction to the sounds of Jazz music, and the history and culture surrounding it. The course is taught as a lecture, for a two-hour period once a week, starting with the very dawn of Jazz history, and discussing the music’s development right up to now. No test, no papers, no homework, no pressure, no judgments and no question is too basic! Because we follow the through-lines and themes of the whole music’s development, it is recommended that students engage for the whole of Jazz 101, but each week focuses on a specific chapter of the music’s history. If you require special accommodations to participate, please call 860-695-6320 two weeks prior to the event. Monday, March 18:  Introduction And Back Story Monday, March 25:  New Orleans Monday, April 1:  The Jazz Age Monday, April 8:  The Swing Era Monday, April 15:  Bebop Monday, April 22:  Cool Jazz/Hard Bop/Modal Jazz/Free Jazz Monday, April 29:  Fusions: Latin Jazz/Third Stream/Jazz-rock Monday, May 6:  Jazz Today: How The Music Reached The 21st Century
