Summer Reading Closing Party with Uncle Rock

Friday, August 26, 2016 @ 6:00pm
Closing dance and ice cream party with Uncle Rock to mark the end of the Summer Reading Program (http://www NULL.summerreadingnys NULL.org/)! The very fun music of Uncle Rock. (http://www NULL.unclerock NULL.com/) Which is more satisfying, rocking out in front of cheering thousands as a globe-trotting bassist, co-writing a song on a Grammy-nominated album, performing the lead in a musical in London’s West End, or bringing all ages together in a singing and dancing crowd? According to one who has done all of the above – Robert Burke Warren, aka Uncle Rock – the fourth choice is by far the most fulfilling. Join America’s favorite faux-relative for a performance filled with Beatles-esque hooks, Grimm’s Fairy Tales depth, and Woody Guthrie folksiness. Unleash your inner rocker!

Sing from Your Soul: A Program for Teens

Saturday, August 27, 2016 @ 2:00pm-5:00pm
Building community through singing. A vocal improvisation workshop for teenagers. In this workshop we will practice various vocal improvisation exercises all together and in smaller groups. We will learn basic breathing technique and skills for vocal health. Improvising together in small groups or in the full circle builds skills in listening, blending, creating, tuning, and trust. At the end of the workshop, we will give an improvised performance. Julie Parisi Kirby (http://www NULL.julieparisikirby NULL.com/) has been studying voice for most of her life and soul singing for over 20 years. She recently studied circle singing and group improvisational singing with Rhiannon and with Bobby McFerrin and Voicestra at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck. Sign up with Lesley in the Children’s Library!
