Bernini’s ROME
American Italian Cultural Center – Many of the memorable sights a tourist sees in Rome were created by one man, GianLorenzo Bernini. Attend this class and continue the American Italian Cultural Center’s virtual walking tours of Italy’s great cities. We move from Florence to Rome where you will take a virtual walking tour through the Eternal City to see many of Bernini’s breathtaking and inspiring creations, from his spellbinding sculpture David (which rivals Michelangelo’s), to his Fountain of the Four Rivers in Piazza Navona and his grand colonnade in front of St. Peter's Square. Hear about this prodigy who grew to command commissions from Popes, fell from grace in the world of architecture and staged a triumphal return to be recognized as the undisputed father of the Baroque style and leading sculptor of his age. As one scholar has commented, "What Shakespeare is to drama, Bernini may be to sculpture ….” The lecture is free for AICC Members and a suggested donation of $10 for non members.

The Revolution + DJ Soul Sister at Joy Theater
Joy Theater – ON SALE THU 11/9 AT 10AM ? http://bit.ly/TheRevolutionNOLATix A Winter Circle Production The Revolution DJ Soul Sister Thursday, February 22, 2018 Joy Theater New Orleans, LA All Ages | Doors 8PM **The Revolution** The Revolution -- Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Bobby Z, BrownMark and Dr. Fink -- is most commonly known as the versatile band behind the music icon, Prince. Merging funk, rock n' roll, rhythm and blues, pop & psychedelia genres, the band is considered to be one of the most successful music acts of all time. The Revolution rose to international fame and prominence in the mid 1980s with Purple Rain, a rock operatic project centered around Prince that catapulted him and the group to instant stardom. The project consisted of two parts: a studio film and an accompanying soundtrack/album. The film was a box office smash hit, while the soundtrack is regarded by many as one of the greatest albums of all time. The record, Purple Rain, was recently inducted into the Library of Congress to be persevered for generations to come. After the summer of 1985, The Revolution soon found themselves to be a global phenomenon, following the release of the film and touring throughout the United States, Europe and Japan. To this day, the album Purple Rain is certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, having sold more than 13 million copies in the United States alone, and the film continues to inspire and entertain audiences around the world. In November 2016, the album won Best Soundtrack of the Year at the American Music Awards, 32 years after its initial release, a testament to the true artistry of the band. It is a feat no other band has accomplished to this day. The Revolution remained close to each other through out the years and reunited on a few occasions with Prince's blessing, most notably for the American Heart Association in early 2012 after drummer, Z, suffered a near fatal heart attack. Following the tragic, sudden passing of their fearless leader in April 2016, The Revolution reunited to honor the musical genius that Prince instilled in them and upon the world. In September, they returned to where it all started -- First Avenue -- an intimate venue in Minneapolis that was very important to Prince & The Revolution during the Purple Rain era and the years prior. The core, original members have decided to remain united and continue to honor and pay tribute to Prince in the best way possible; playing the music they helped create with him and with it, heal this new world they now find themselves in without the incomparable, iconic Prince. **DJ Soul Sister** Soul Sister, who is known worldwide as the “queen of rare groove” and crate digging, has hosted her Soul Power show on WWOZ FM and "right on party situations" for nearly two decades in her native New Orleans. As a self-proclaimed “dj artist,” mixing and blending 100% vinyl, she has opened for everyone from George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic and the funky Meters to DJ Questlove, while being the first DJ, man or woman, to receive a Big Easy Entertainment Award for “Best DJ.” She specializes in the music she loves only: funk, soul, rare groove, underground disco, jazz fusion, true school hip hop, and more. She is also a music scholar, and has recently been featured in include Nelson George's documentary Finding the Funk, the book Dust & Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting, and on Red Bull Radio, Boiler Room, and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM. Her earliest memories of The Revolution don't include watching Purple Rain (she was too young to see it when it came out in 1984), or seeing them live in concert when they played the Superdome with Prince in 1985 (her mom didn't allow her to go when she asked). Instead, she bought a VHS tape of Prince and the Revolution Live (Syracuse, 1985) when it came out, and watched it endlessly. The show is now available on DVD as part of the expanded edition of last year's reissue of the Purple Rain soundtrack. Additionally, she's been throwing Prince-theme parties in New Orleans for over a decade.
