Heilbrun, Harvey Tell Me a Story, Sing Me a Song Literature- Other,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Harvey Heilbrun's energetic and imaginative performances engage young and old in the art of the oral tradition. Join him as he spins folktales, sings, plays guitar, and breathes life into the imagination of the listeners. Using his 33 years of teaching experience in the middle and elementary school, including 25 years of singing and storytelling, Harvey presents everything from traditional Appalachian tales to classic legends, from historical songs to old-fashioned ghost stories. Younger grades will appreciate picture book based tales and story-songs. He will work with you to design the ideal program for your group. Multi-day follow-up workshops on storytelling with smaller groups are available. He is an ideal supplement to Balanced Literacy, Character Education, Environmental programs and Library reading programs for school age children. His program supports the Common Core standards. Harvey gathers his stories from a number of different sources, mainly folktale collections, picture books and tales that he’s heard from other tellers. He gets pleasure in telling tales that usually have a twist. He performs a number of curriculum/thematic related songs that he has written and songs of other famous songwriters.

Durst, James JAMES DURST: 'Hue Manatee's Quest' Music,
Nature- Environment,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Singer-songwriter James Durst presents a 1-man musical adventure, rich in humor, song & story to dramatize themes of environmental sustainability, unity in diversity, friendship & peace. The central characters Hue (as in 'color' or 'cry of alarm') Manatee and Flickati Cricket seek the wisdom of renowned change agent Leon Chameleon, only to be invited along on a journey to his ancestral homeland, the Galápagos. Along the way, they overcome numerous perils while meeting and sharing songs with Shining Eagle (Northern Hemisphere shaman of the Imáji Nation), a trio of dolphins, a whale threatened by a whaling ship, Ella Condor (Southern Hemisphere medicine woman of the Todos tribe), and a popular street-corner quintet known as Acapellago. Cameo appearances are made by Hansel & Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood & Goldilocks to populate Leon's parable explaining how our protagonists differ from the 'two-legged ones' in a 5-part tour de farce, 'Lost in the Kuda Shuda Woods.' Ideally suited for families with older children, as the humor employs wordplay and the music is sophisticated yet accessible. Imagine 'The Lion King' meets 'Candide.'

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.”

Spook Handy in Concert is the most popular show I do. Instead of being theme oriented, this is just simply me, my trio or full band showcasing mostly original songs from my 4 CDs. Sprinkled with occasional 60s and 70s folk songs or an obscure original, this concert engages audiences of all backgrounds and ages. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year.

Bromka, Sondra & John Dreaming, Digging In, and Doing: 'THE ANT & THE GRASSHOPPER, AESOP'S FABLED FIDDLER' Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Dance
Bells & Motley's musical storytelling performance is a Greek classic concerning the value of Dreaming, Digging In, and Doing! We all understand how our lives' pressing labors hang in a balance with the wonders of artistry and expression, through colors and sounds and dances. In our telling, we are confident that all will appreciate the carefully drawn moral concerning the value of both work & play. As we weave the tale through Ant and Grasshopper’s year in four episodes, each scene begins with the appropriate movement of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons' evocatively performed by the artists on harp, nyckelharpa, tromba marina, and winds. The action and mystique of the tale are further highlighted by the audiences’ contributions on medieval fiddles (researched and built by the artists themselves), percussion, and dancing. At the end of our maiden performance of this show, a young fellow excitedly asked: 'Where will we all be performing this next?' Exploratory Expressions by audience+artists, before the performance: -The Grasshopper's Fiddling Troupe - The Ant's Percussion Troupe - The Butterfly Dancers And now, Dear Audience, Places!! Let the story begin as together we play and sing the 15th c. song of 'El Grillo' the Cricket!
