Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
When it comes to celebrating, don’t we each have a little Italian in us? Why not celebrate your “inner Italian” with a trip to Italy right here in New York! Between 1880 and 1920, over four million Italians entered the United States. Learn how those who settled in New York’s neighborhoods made their cultural imprint on the city. With four Little Italys to visit in New York’s boroughs, there’s plenty to see and do. We’ll take a “tour” through each one, with an in-depth look at attractions, restaurants, markets, bakeries, shops; all that makes them uniquely Italian. Plus, we’ll “tour” another Little Italy in a city only two hours from New York. Complete itineraries, thorough information about each neighborhood and directions for car/public transportation/parking will all be provided. And, of course, prizes for all! Buon viaggio!

Bromka, Sondra & John 'The Boy Who Went to Visit the North Wind' Participatory Storytelling + 'Who Has Heard the Wind' Children's Concert History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Sondra and John Bromka bring audiences on a wind-swept journey to 'long ago and far away' with the telling of this fine traditional tale. Look forward to an energetic tandem storytelling performance that is underscored with live music on Celtic harp, enriched with historic authenticity, and alive with abundant participation that is well suited to audiences of all ages. A tale of wonder, magic, and heroism, the story unfolds when a poor boy's meal is unwittingly blown away, taken to the four corners of the earth by the all-powerful North Wind, and cannot be returned. In exchange, a magic tablecloth, magic donkey, and magic stick are three marvelous gifts offered by the Wind. But in the end, the most important gift of all is surely the North Wind's sage advice: 'All you have to do is keep your eyes & ears open.' As in the best of traditional folktales, there is the timeless appeal of a thought provoking theme. Here, justice & fairness are of universal concern to young children. And they will enjoy their favorite storytelling elements: patterns and repetition, personification, and especially, the wondrous and curious ways of 'long ago & far away.'
