Tuesday, January 12, 2016: Noon brown bag lunch, 12:30-2 PM program, No Charge
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.

ECKERD OLLI BIOGRAPHY SERIES PRESENTS: FOREVER THE FAIR LADY: LOVELY JULIE ANDREWS
Eckerd Osher Institute of Lifelong Learning (OLLI) 2016 Winter Biography Series
Class Instructor: Joy Katzen-Guthrie

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.

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.

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.
