Jacob George in Concert with Special Guests The Best Medicine and The High Lifers                 

Jacob George is an American Singer/Songwriter, also known as the guitarist and singer for rock band Powder Monkey. Mr. George is a graduate of Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor’s Degree in Songwriting. From a young age, he began to focus on music as a means of understanding and expressing his experiences. With his music ranging from rock, blues to folk, Jacob George creates a body of work that is both transforming and unforgettable.

Throw away your auto-tuners and drum machines, Jacob George is all about organic sound. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Neil Young and Jack White, George layers gritty rock vocals atop rugged folk acoustics.

The High Lifers

 

Driven by the interweaving intensity of multi-instrumentalist Kail Maheswaran and percussionist Tom Gilfoy, The High Lifers draw upon various styles and musical techniques to create an organic fusion of sound, and mindful songwriting.

 

The Best Medicine

 

The Best Medicine makes original music that blends various styles such as americana, singer-songwriter, folk and rock. Descending from a long line of shamans and spirit-healers, the Best Medicine calls you into the swamps, the deserts, and the prairies of your soul to spend just a little time out of your mind.

Miami Children's Chorus – Wolrd Class Conductor/Master Teacher Doreen Rao visits Miami Oct 30: FIU – Nov 1, 2:30pm: Sing Miami – Arsht Center

22721 tradewind rd boca raton fl 33428

        WORLD-CLASS CONDUCTOR/MASTER TEACHER DOREEN RAO VISITS MIAMI

               Rao will lead a workshop for teachers and a community sing-along

The Miami Children’s Chorus will present Conductor/Master Teacher Dr. Doreen Rao in two events: Arts Day – A Professional Development Day for Miami-Dade County Public School (M-DCPS) teachers Fri., Oct. 30th and Sing Miami – a free community sing-along Sun., Nov. 1st 2:30PM at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County.

Highly applauded for her work in mentoring current and emerging conductor/educators, the eminent conductor Robert Shaw once noted of Dr. Rao: “The world of choral music owes her special thanks. She is preparing our future.” Dr. Rao will lead an afternoon session for M-DCPS teachers at Florida International University. She will focus on 21st Century strategies and techniques for teaching choral music for youth from elementary school through high school. These ideas will come from her work with The Rao Center for Choral and Contemplative Arts, which Rao founded in 2014. Hal Leonard Corporation has supplied the music for this presentation.

Sat., Oct. 31st Rao will work with the children of the MCC in preparation for the sing-along Sun., Nov. 1st at 2:30PM. She will explore with the children music by composers of the past and present as well as future compositional voices. Toronto music critic Robert Everett-Green once wrote: “For Rao, every note has an urgent meaning, not just within the composition, but within the wider world.” The audience will be a major part of this interactive sing-along as Dr. Rao takes everyone inside the musical experience from the performer’s perspective. Diane Windeler of the Express News, San Antonio said of Doreen Rao, “Doreen Rao is a dynamo – a vivacious, energetic, dedicated choral director… She led an invigorating concert.”

Tickets for the free event – Sing Miami: A Community Sing-Along – Sun., Nov. 1st at 2:30PM are available via the Arsht Center First-Access Pass by visiting arshtcenter.org or by calling 305.949.6722.

ABOUT THE MCC

            The Miami Children’s Chorus is a not-for-profit community arts organization specializing in choral music education and performance for children age 8-18 in Miami-Dade County. In three levels of ensemble – beginning, intermediate and advanced – MCC provides weekly rehearsals where children practice the life-long skills of commitment, respect for self and others, and the rewards of a dedicated effort while learning the skills and techniques necessary for healthy vocal production, musicianship and artistry.

MCC has performed with PBS favorite André Rieu, the Cleveland Orchestra, Israeli Chamber Orchestra, Florida Grand Opera, Gloria Estefan and made a Super Bowl appearance with Queen Latifah. One could say with confidence that the MCC unites voices to change lives. Recent alum Edmond Rodriguez commented on his experience in the MCC: “MCC has molded my respect for others and myself. Being forced to trust those around me, I learned that respect stems from understanding the direction in which a group of musicians choose to pursue. Music has the power to take us to another dimension of communication, and MCC exposed me to that concept from the very beginning. MCC teaches you how to be social, passionate and caring. For me, MCC distinguished the difference between good and great, and I am so grateful to have been a part of this community. It will be a part of me forever.” Edmond is now a freshman in the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California. As a freshman he was selected by audition to sing in the USC Chamber Singers – the highest level of ensemble on the USC campus.

            The Miami Children’s Chorus is supported in part by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; the City of Miami Beach, Cultural Affairs Program,

Cultural Affairs Council; Citizens Interested in Arts, Inc., and Symphonettes.

THE CATHEDRAL OF ST. JOHN THE DIVINE PRESENTS ANNUAL HALLOWEEN EXTRAVAGANZA AND PROCESSION OF THE GHOULS

22721 tradewind rd boca raton fl 33428

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine hosts its annual Halloween Extravaganza and Procession of the Ghouls All Hallows Eve celebration on Friday, October 30 at 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM, at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan.

Enter if you dare! Patrons will feel the thrill as F.W. Murneau's 1922 silent classic Nosferatu projects on the big screen with live accompaniment by Timothy Brumfield on the Great Organ. The Halloween magic continues immediately following each screening with the Procession of the Ghouls, as guests encounter the ghoulish mischief of wicked goblins taking over the Cathedral. Expect to hear the cackle of spook-tacular creatures of the night, as phantoms and ghouls, crafted and directed by Cathedral Artist-in-Residence Ralph Lee and the Mettawee River Theatre Company, make their way down the entire length of the nave. Seats closest to the action may find themselves confronted face to face with the beaked nose of a demon, the mossy nails of a witch, or the flushed cheeks of a ghost at this frighteningly fun event!

Tickets are available for $25.  To purchase tickets for the 7:00 PM showing, please visit:
