McIntosh, Story Laurie Journey to Ellis Island: An Immigration Story Genealogy,
History,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
In this touching and powerful performance, Story Laurie portrays her grandmother as an immigrant girl full of hopes and dreams. Listeners travel with the young Carmela on this emotional (and often humorous) journey as she departs her hometown of Potenza, Italy, crosses the Atlantic and arrives in New York Harbor, ready to begin a new life in a strange and magical land. The performance (25-30 mins.) is followed by a discussion/Q&A session about US immigration. Journey to Ellis Island is also available as a residency program where Laurie helps students develop the skills to research their own family stories. The residency culminates in individual or group art projects (eg. a song written by students and which tells of the collective immigrant experience; class “quilt” that depicts each family’s story).

Bromka, Sondra & John The Tale of Tristan & Iseult: An Arthurian Legend Literature- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
This most famous of all classic love stories was originally set in Celtic antiquity, and an important component of the Arthurian legends. In the 12th century, the tale was already 600 years old when it captured the imagination of Medieval France’s famous storyteller-poet-musicians, the troubadours. The powerful story continued its long journey through the ages... inspiring many works in turn, including Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet). Bells & Motley present a telling that is authentic, yet lively, accessible, highly charged, and mysterious - full of all of the original symbolism, intrigue, and purpose. In ancient bardic style, it features a simple setting, rich language, and complex emotions evoked through the power of music. Rare historic instruments include the Medieval keyed fiddle, low-voiced recorders, ancient gut-strung bray harp, and Celtic harp. Musical selections include the same historic pieces that were part of Medieval tellings, as inspired by this enduring tale.
