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.

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.

http://bethamtampa.org/
One of 9 children born to Syrian-Lebanese Catholic parents, actor/singer/humanitarian Danny Thomas survived challenging times early in his career when work was impossible to find. When most down and out, he vowed that if he became successful, he would dedicate a shrine to St. Jude, the patron saint of hopeless causes. His fortune turned—intriguingly with several notable roles as Jewish leading characters. With extraordinary success in television and film by the early 50s, he took steps to bring his promise to fruition. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis became the first facility to treat children of every color, creed, and financial status from all 50 states and worldwide, seeking cures to terminal children's illness and saving countless lives. Thomas' legacy of lasting music, love, and hope lives on.

Her life appears to be star-crossed, but the gifted singer/actress Julie Andrews has overcome challenges and sadness. She is known for exuding down-to-earth warmth, humility, and kindness with everyone she meets. She describes a dark childhood supporting herself and her impoverished family with her gifted voice. Her Broadway breakthrough in My Fair Lady was an experience of trial by fire through which she became an instant sensation—only to lose the movie role because she was not yet a film star. Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, and many roles to follow would change all that. She would make six fulfilling films with her beloved second husband, Blake Edwards, whom she lost to pneumonia after 41 years of marriage. A 1997 medical procedure destroyed her singing voice. It took much time before she fully accepted the devastating loss, but she has never considered retiring: "I've been working all my life. I wouldn't know how not to." If we are lucky, we'll continue to enjoy her work for many years to come.

Explore the careers, personal lives, work ethics, and creative output of two of the greatest actresses of all time.

She has received more award nominations and wins than any other actor (male or female) in history. Julia Roberts' breakthroughs in Steel Magnolias and Pretty Woman set the stage—literally and figuratively—for her to become one of the highest-earning and most acknowledged stars of all time. Two gifted actors who have changed the world.

In the late 50s, a new generation of stand-up comics developed innovative, gritty, contemporary styles of comedy from which today's comics descend. Alan King, Bob Newhart, Nichols & May, George Carlin, Jonathan Winters, Carol Burnett, Richard Pryor, Tom Lehrer and Flip Wilson are among these young geniuses of satire who saw the world from a greatly different perspective from their parents and weren't afraid to say so. Enjoy the astute and hysterical observations of these gifted predecessors of our current generation of comedians.

ECKERD ROAD SCHOLAR PROGRAMS PRESENTS: LIGHT AS AIR: MARGE AND GOWER CHAMPION
http://www.eckerd.edu/roadscholar/ • Eckerd College Road Scholar Programs, St. Petersburg, FL
Mon., April 4, 2016, 8:30-11:45 am, 1:15-3:15 PM, and Wed., April 6, 8:30-10:00 AM
Frequently compared to Astaire & Rogers, the immensely popular husband and wife team of Marge & Gower Champion created some of the most visually stunning, memorable and groundbreaking dance scenes in lavish 1950's MGM musicals like Show Boat, Lovely To Look At, Three For the Road, and Jupiter's Darling. But their careers embraced so much more, with critically acclaimed and innovative dance in musical revue, musical comedy, and musical drama on stage and television as well as film. Additionally, each enjoyed successful individual careers aside of their work together. Gower would become one of the most successful and influential Broadway Director-Choreographers during America's Golden Age of Musicals, crafting the stage design and movement of powerhouse shows such as Bye Bye Birdie, Carnival, Hello, Dolly!, and 42nd Street. A master of the form, he would join the ranks of most revered performer/choreographers like Jerome Robbins, Bob Fosse, and Michael Bennett. Marge would appear in film and would serve as a choreographer and consultant to acclaimed productions such as Queen of the Stardust Ballroom. Their story is the story of the American musical on film and stage during its heydey.

CONGREGATION BETH AM OF TAMPA PRESENTS: A CELEBRATION OF JEWISH CULTURE: A 3-part Adult Education Concert Series with Joy Katzen-Guthrie
Mondays, May 2, 9, and 16, 2016: 7-9 PM with 15-minute breaks with refreshments, No Charge
http://bethamtampa.org/
Session 1, May 2, 2016: A Musical Jewish Nosh. The foods we eat identify us, refelecting our time and place, as well as the many ways in which we have adapted the cuisines where we have lived to our own holiday and ritual traditions. In centuries past, Jewish food often was shaped by poverty and scarcity as we found ways to create filling and flavorful meals from meager and inexpensive products. Today, Jewish food encompasses evolving tastes, traditions, availability of food, and attitudes toward healthfulness in a modern world. From chicken soup to stuffed cabbage, knishes, strudel, latkes, kreplach, and hamentashen, Jewish food plays a prominent part of our music as well. You might be surprised how many of our songs reflect the food and beverages that Jews enjoy. Come hear a little musical Jewish nosh!
Session 2, May 9, 2016: Pioneer Music of Israel. As we prepare to celebrate Yom Haatzmaut—Israel's Independence Day—on May 12, 2016, Joy shares history, stories, and song from the late 19th century and early 20th century settlers of pre-state Israel as well as composers of the early state of Israel whose prioneering spirit, dedication to Jewish survival, and affirmation of the Zionist cause transformed worldwide Jewish life and made the modern state of Israel a reality. Hear songs of pioneer Israeli Jewish life—with their expression of experiences, dreams, and hopes unique to these individuals and communities and their quest to return to and thrive within a Jewish homeland.
Session 3, May 16, 2016: Piyyutim: Love Songs of Our People. Jewish liturgical poetry—piyuttim—is sung, chanted, and recited during our worship services and religious life. Composed in Hebrew and Aramaic first in Eretz Yisrael and Middle Eastern Jewish societies, these love songs to God and Jewish life came to be loved throughout the Jewish world. An embellishment and extension of prayer created by rabbinic poets, they made the prayer chant identifiable, enjoyable, and participatory for the congregation. In time, Judeo-Spanish and Kabbalist poets woudl compose great quantities of this poetry. Beloved piyyutim such as Adon Olam, Yigdal, Adir Hu, L'cha Dodi and many more are staples of Jewish worship. Hear highlights in this concert class.
