Film Screening -- Robert Shaw -- "Man of Many Voices"

Robert Shaw – Man of Many Voices traces the journey of a small town California boy who planned to be a minister like his father, but instead became the greatest conductor of choral music the world has ever known. At the heart of the film is the mystery of Shaw's genius. With no formal musical training, he achieved a stunning early success in popular music and later became legendary for his interpretations of classical music's great choral masterpieces.

An early champion of civil rights, Shaw had a mystical belief in the power of community and could communicate his passion for music with spellbinding intensity. As Music Director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in the latter half of the twentieth century, Robert Shaw changed the course of musical history through the many voices he set on fire with an enduring love of music.

Spring Theatre Production -- "Getting Out" by Marsha Norman

On Getting Out of prison, Arlene returns to a rundown Louisville apartment to start her life over. Rebellious as a young girl, she wants to put that time, when she was known as Arlie, behind her. But Arlene's struggle isn't only about overcoming the challenges of starting over; it's also about "getting out" of Arlie, who, played by another actress, fights for her own survival. We meet prison guards and officials with whom Arlie clashed, as well as those she is confronted by as Arlene: her ex-boyfriend, her mother, a desperate former prison guard and a bizarrely friendly neighbor. Pulitzer Prize-winner Norman based this raw drama on her experience working with troubled adolescents.
