Here is a brief run down of the final shows:
Friday, Jan. 18: Orchestra Santa Monica Woodwind Quintet
The OSM Woodwind Quintet is a cornerstone in Orchestra Santa Monica’s educational and community outreach. The quintet’s mission is to provide live music programs in traditionally under-served parts of our community. The quintet often performs in Title I schools, whose students have little access to live concert music. By incorporating educational talks into each performance, the quintet enhances the learning experience for younger audiences and helps introduce them to new or unfamiliar genres.
Saturday, Jan 19: Poetry and Spoken Word
So Fresh and So Clean present Poetry Unhinged – hosted by Joe Hernandez-Kolski and Joshua Silverstein. Special guests include HBO Def Poet Mayda del Valle, Tap Dancer Sarah Reich, and Comedian/MC Zach Sherwin (aka Mr. Napkins).
Thursday, Jan 24: Contemporary Dance curated by Suchi Branfman
An evening of diverse dance approaches to traveling through cultural, physical, and spiritual contact, boundaries and borders. The three soloists in this evening of contemporary dance – Suchi Branfman, Sheetal Gandhi, and Roxane Steinberg – are all inspired by the cultural contact that they make as performers, moving into and through other worlds. Join them for a trip from the comfort of your seat.
Friday, Jan 25: Hart Pulse Dance Company
