Participants may use the mirrors provided and paint their own faces or paint on a willing friend or family member. As they do this, they are learning about blending colors and cooperating with others.

Sonny and Perley, Sonny and Perley Brazilian Romance - The Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Brazilian Romance - Bossa Nova and the Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim From the very first song, this concert enchants and delights. Audiences are brought back to the 1960's sound of Sergio Mendez & Brazil 66, reminiscing and singing along to The Girl From Ipanema and many more of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s evergreens. Sonny & Perley together with world-multi-percussionist Brian Melick and a bassist capture the essence of the sultry romance of bossa nova. Perley effectively draws the audience in with both English and Portuguese interpretations of lyrics. You don’t have to be Brazilian to love this concert; just in the mood for a night of romance, captivating rhythm and to be transported to some place warm and tropical! The Post Star review says “To their Brazilian and American fans alike, Sonny & Perley have a style that is as irresistible and authentic as the Ipanema girl herself.”

The first story, “Foolish Jack,” is a Jack tale about Jack’s adventures when he first leaves home.
