CONGREGATION BETH AM OF TAMPA PRESENTS: THE GREAT INNOVATORS: LEGENDARY JEWISH MUSICAL PERFORMER/CREATORS SUMMER SERIES
THURSDAYS, JUNE 4-25, 2015 • 7-9 PM with 15-minute breaks with refreshments, Free
http://bethamtampa.org/
Thursday, June 4, 2015 • 7-9 PM - REMEMBERING THE GREAT DANE ... VICTOR BORGE – Beloved world-renowned pianist and humorist Victor Borge, claimed, "Laughter is the closest distance between people." One of the 20th century's funniest performers, he devoted his career to making light of the pomposity and seriousness of the classic masters and their music. A brilliant concert pianist, he escaped Denmark shortly before the country was occupied by Nazi Germany. Arriving in the US with only a few dollars, he quickly found his way — through talent, willpower, and joy in living — toward making a worldwide impact in the entertainment world. Experience his enormous gifts through his story and his concerts. Be prepared to leave with your sides aching! No charge, all are welcome
Thursday, June 11, 2015 • 7-9 PM - PERFECTIONIST OF THE DANCE: JEROME ROBBINS - In the 40's as Hollywood and Broadway extended the role of dance, a new generation of influential young choreographers joined a young generation of writers and producers to strage new dance extravaganza. Among the greatest masters of modern dance, Robbins developed a signature style for the next generation of notable musicals. With stylized social ballet and complex dance extravanganza, Robbins' choreography was not an addition to the musical—it was the very essence of the emotion itself. In productions such as On the Town, West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof, dance embodies joy, discovery, fear, grief, confusion, anger, hope. Robbins recognized limitless possibilities of dance to convey the raw power of the modern musical. No charge, all are welcome.
Thursday, June 18, 2015 • 7-9 PM - LEONARD BERNSTEIN: INNOVATOR AND INSPIRATION – One of America’s most influential figures in 20th century music, Leonard Bernstein's fascinating life as pianist, composer, orchestrator, conductor, concert artist, and lecturer/teacher deserves a closer look. From his whirlwind beginnings as conductor of the New York Philharmonic to his creations for theatre, film, and concert hall to his relationship with Israel and Jewish music and his inspirational concert at the Berlin Wall, the artist's life and gifts will be the focus of our tribute. No charge, all are welcome
Thursday, June 25, 2015 • 7-9 PM - THE WAY WE WERE: THE MARVIN HAMLISCH ERA – As the Golden Era of the American musical came to a close after the 50's, the decades to follow brought a shift in musical attitudes. The result was a period of self-examination and experimentation within both conventional and non-conventional themes, stretching the boundaries of American musical theatre beyond anything the genre had experienced. Among the new generation of musical creators was the gifted young genius, Marvin Hamlisch. His film themes and scores—The Way We Were, The Sting, A Chorus Line among them—were the very representation of their time. One of only three composers to win an Oscar, Tony, Grammy, and Emmy, Mahlisch also received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for A Chorus Line in 1975. He and Richard Rodgers are the only people to win all five awards. Discover the man behind the music in this biographical tribute. No charge, all are welcome.

The visionaries who established Hollywood as a mecca for film sought to capture the American dream within the burgeoning and expanding movie industry. These pioneering mavericks included Cecil B. deMille, Jesse Lasky, Samuel Goldwyn, Carl Laemmle, Louis B. Mayer, The Warner Brothers, Adolph Zukor, Harry Cohn, David O. Selznick, and Walt Disney, along with their roster of extraordinary directors, producers, and stars. They ruled their studios with an iron fist, leaving legacies that far outshone their stunning careers. Their story is the story of American creativity and enterprise springing from its melting pot, the development of Hollywood as the world's film capitol, and the dream of opportunity within this land of freedom. Through their guidance, the studio system they created flourished from the 1920s through the 1950's, produced many of the most profound moments ever filmed, and established the golden era of moving pictures.

Cowboy, humorist, vaudevillian, social and political commentator, actor, and record-breaking roper and horseman, Will Rogers was one of the world's most trusted and beloved celebrities of the early 20th century. With his native American heritage, frontier roots, and insightful folksy humor, Rogers' observations of American society and government took up where the comments of Mark Twain left off. Calling politics the "best show in the world," and Congress "the national joke factory," Rogers was Life Magazine's "Anti-Bunk Party" candidate for President in 1928. Though his life ended much too early in a plane creash over Alaska in 1935, his legacy lives on at the Will Rogers Memorial Museum in Claremore, Oklahoma. As we rediscover his life, we'll find his commentary as honest and accurate today as it was 80 years ago.

From the development of the popular theatre's tap dance and "hoofing" in the late 19th century through the century that followed, dancers came to display increasingly thrilling effects and stylizations that dramatically expanded the theatre and film industries. Virtuosity of talent, mind-expanding emotions within the dance, and complex extravaganza became signature hallmarks of the work of the finest dance talents of the modern era. From Bojangles, the Nicholas Brothers, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Shirley Temple, and Ruby Keeler—to Sammy Davis Jr., Jimmy Cagney, Eleanor Powell, Ray Bolger, Donald O'Connor, Buddy Ebsen, and Anne Miller‚to Marge & Gower Champion, Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon, Gregory Hines, Dick van Dyke, John Travolta, and Patrick Swayze—you'll be amazed at the seemingly limitless possibilities of dance, the raw power of the performance, and the senational skill of these 20th century dance legends.

Three divine voices of jazz, three divine women: Ella Fitagerald, Peggy Lee, Lena Horne. Among the greatest talents in the music business, they are three of hte most distinctive and talented voices ever recorded, three stunning, sensational women of jazz. Ella's impeccable vocal purity and phrasing evoke sighs of awe and giddiness. Simply put, she was one of the greatest performers who ever lived, rising from homelessness to sing for royalty as the First Lady of Song. The regal and elegant Peggy Lee was described as having a personality as lovely and sophisticated as her music. Despite a traumatic upbringing with a violent stepmother and alcoholic father, she devoted herself to an exemplary career and to non-violence. For 75 years, the graceful and timeless Lena Horne passionately performed, breaking barriers to limits in civil rights, social justice, and human dignity. She represented the highest standard of artistry, the pinnacle of integrity. Get to know more intimately the lives, careers, and music of each of these truly legendary women.
