Theater, Arm-of-the-Sea City That Drinks the Mountain Sky History,
Nature- Environment,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
The epic story of water for New York City, told in the elemental beauty of mask & puppet theatre. Heralded as one of the wonders of the world, New York City's ingenious system of aqueducts and reservoirs provides clear mountain water from the Catskills to nine million downstate residents. And though the struggle over these water resources has, at times, bitterly divided city managers and watershed residents, it has also irrevocably united them. Through a shimmering tapestry of poetry, puppetry and evocative music, City that Drinks the Mountain Sky brings alive the lyrical landscape of the Catskills— to portray the on-going story of the watershed and the uneasy marriage of those who must protect its vulnerable flowing treasure. You can expect plenty of visual punch and timely wit as the Hudson Valley's premier eco-logic theater traces life's quintessential liquid from mountain top to city tap. Study guide and post performance discussion provided for school audiences. Photos and video available at www.armofthesea.org

Roethel, Glen Concert: One Hour of Folk Music History,

Folk music grows from the roots of human experience, aspiration, and condition. The songs are often simple, topical, critical, hopeful, singable and memorable. They tell stories about us, and they aspire us to greater things. In this music-and-narrative presentation, contemporary folk radio-charting recording artist Glen Roethel delivers a light overview of works by time-honored folk legends such as Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Peter Paul and Mary, and more – with a tip-of-the-hat to traditional music and contemporary folk artists as well. [Songs for this performance may be drawn from the following original and cover songs, and more: Mr. Bojangles, There But For Fortune, Blowing In The Wind, I Must Go, Leaving on a Jet Plane, The Water Is Wide, This Land is Your Land, If I Had a Hammer, Carolina In My Mind, We Shall Overcome, Imagine, Both Sides Now, Puff the Magic Dragon, To Forgive]

Cain, Ron A Magical Trip to the Titanic History,
Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Join magician Ron Cain on “A Magical Trip to the Titanic,” a magic show that commemorates the 100th anniversary of the ship's sinking. The luxury liner hit an iceberg the night of April 14, 1912, on its maiden voyage from England to New York. Only one-third of the 2,200 people aboard survived. Cain appears as a magical time traveler who takes young audiences back to the time of the Titanic. Children help perform tricks that depict what life was like on the “jewel of the White Star Line.” Illusions also feature key figures from history and highlight elements of the tragedy that led to improvements in maritime safety. A Syracuse University graduate and former teacher, Ron performs educational magic shows for libraries and schools throughout the Northeast. Each year, he presents a show highlighting the summer reading program theme. Shows include the Magic of Being Green, Wide World of Magic, Tune In To Magical Idol, Uncle Sam's Magic of America, Wandering Wizard Show, Capt.

Handy, Spook Ground Breaking Troubadours History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Spook Handy has been called “a modern day troubadour in the style of Pete Seeger and Phil Ochs.” In fact, Spook’s style of acoustic guitar, harmonica and singing fits right in with the Ground Breaking Troubadours of the 20th Century – Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Peter Paul and Mary, Phil Ochs and others – who paved the path for thousands of acoustic songwriters and folk musicians to follow. This program tells the history of America through songs that were often the first of their kind. Many of the songs in this program and the stories behind them were taught to Spook by his mentor Pete Seeger.

The lyrical music of Cuisle Mo Chroí (pronounced Cushla Ma Chree) evokes the heart of Celtic music. Combine the soothing tones of three part vocal harmony with the delicate arpeggios of the Irish harp, calming flow of breath through the wooden flute and penny whistle, and the steady pulse of bodhran (Irish drum) and guitar to make this trio of women, “Cuisle Mo Chroí” one of the premier folk groups in the Rochester NY area. The three, Patricia Carey, Mary Lester, and Cathy McGrath, have appeared nine times in the Rochester Irish Festival, have opened for “Cherish the Ladies”, and are often found at Irish music sessions in the area. Expect to hear songs (some in the Irish language) that evoke images of Ireland, Scotland, castles, immigration, romance, as well as songs your grandmother taught you on St. Patrick’s Day, and a few lively tunes - reels, jigs, planxties and polkas. This program has been presented for the Irish American Cultural Institute and for many community concerts and libraries.

Rosenberg, Paul Dance the World Around! History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
Your audience can try their hand at folk dancing, and kick up their heels to live fiddle music, just like people did in the 18th and 19th century before electricity! Enjoy a tradition of community dancing and music handed down from generation to generation and that is still going on in many communities. We play music and get everyone involved – from ages 2 to 102 — especially those who have not danced before, in easy-to-learn American barn dance favorites: circles, squares, contras, as well as international folk (Irish, Dutch, African, Chinese, Korean, Latin American, Russian, Israeli, French, and more) dances. The toe-tapping music consists of reels, jigs, polkas, hornpipes, and waltzes. While participation in the dancing is encouraged — and it’s hard to sit still — it’s fun to just listen to the music and watch too! We teach about the origins of traditional folk instruments including the fiddle, modern and gourd banjo, mandolin, flute, penny whistle, clarinet, guitar, piano, recorder, accordion, ukulele, Chinese hu lu si, percussion, and more. The “Dance the World Around” includes a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures.
