Bring along your favorite carving or tool-of-choice to share, an album of work or a book to inspire, and a hunk of wood to whittle. Attendance is not required at each session, but students are encouraged to mark planned absences on the class roster. Happy carving!

The Last Supper's deceptively simple composition, its history and Leonardo's flawed genius are discussed in this class.

In fact, he became so popular that he was called the Prince of Painters. His life and many of his major works will be covered in this course.

Based on the poetry slam format and similar to popular radio shows like NPR's "The Moth" or "This American Life", a story slam is a festival for the spoken word. Each month's LLI Slam will have a theme, and stories may be no longer than eight minutes. Stories must be true, though embellishments are natural to storytelling.  “The Moth” uses a phrase that goes something like, "True as affirmed by the storytellers." Up to seven story-slammers will be selected for each starting line-up. At the live shows, as time permits, procrastinators or late starters may put their names in a hat to be selected to tell. The theme for this session's first Slam is: “Sunshine on a Cloudy Day." Slammers can interpret the theme liberally - stories about sun, rain, lightness, darkness, hope, gifts, unexpectedly good things, etc.  No notes or cheat sheets are allowed during the live performance. Remember that the best stories have a beginning, middle and end. They have a point and should be clear about why it's important to hear. Storytellers will have an opportunity to tell their story to a friendly, live audience of fellow LLI members. Les Schaffer will serve as Slam MC and be available for phone or electronic consultation and coaching as tellers develop and polish their story. Those who plan to slam and those who just want to listen to some good stories should register for this course!

Join us to become part of a fun- and laughter-filled performing group. No memorization required, as we are part of a growing national trend of senior citizen theatrical groups who use a script. When performing, we enjoy doing primarily humorous skits and scenes from many sources. We share the fun as we perform for LLI audiences and occasionally other audiences nearby. As we develop our performing skills, the focus stays on having a happy time and letting the "ham" in each of us shine! Some previous experience in theater is helpful but not required!

Classical Music History in the Cities of Europe                                  

Wednesday                                      AD183129           

10:30-12:00

Instructor(s): Suzanne Levitas

Our classical music experience has focused on the history of music from pre-history through to modern times, composer by composer. While classical music, as we know it, has roots in the Middle Ages, the best-known eras are the Baroque, the Classical, and the Romantic to the Contemporary classical. The transition from one period to the next occurred gradually and music written during these periods often featured aspects of the eras they were bridging. We have explored many of these eras and their representative composers from Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert. Composers' music often reflected the rich cultures of the cities and regions of Europe from Paris to Vienna, from London to Rome. But what about the other regions and cities of Europe that have made western art music ring from concert halls around the world? What about composers from Spain, northern Germany, Eastern Europe, western Russia, and Scandinavia? Did the role of nationalism and cultural exchange affect the performance and composition of European-style classical music in the traditions of the regions and cities? Was there a difference in genres of classical music in the ballet, the opera, the symphony, the concerto, chamber music, and liturgical music? Get ready to experience Western art music in the rich cultures of important music centers of Europe!
