Suzuki What?! Suzuki Parent Education Class
Community Music School – Suzuki Parent Education Class for Current and Prospective parents. This class is a three-part session overview of the Suzuki method. A large part of the Suzuki triangle is the Suzuki parents! Parents participation contributed to the success their child’s Suzuki experience. More than fifty years ago, Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki realized the implications of the fact that children the world over learn to speak their native language with ease. He began to apply the basic principles of language acquisition to the learning of music, and called his method the mother-tongue approach. The ideas of parent responsibility, loving encouragement, constant repetition, etc., are some of the special features of the Suzuki approach. Three-Part Session: Wednesdays at 6:00-6:45pm with Julienne Ikegami January 17, 24 & 31, 2018 Cost: $36 Pre-Registration Required: 610-489-3676 or info@cmsmusic.org

Woke & Well-Read Book Club: The Hate U Give
Big Blue Marble Bookstore – Woke & Well-Read is a new book club starting this fall, facilitated by Jamila Latham. The group meets the third week every month - after attendance at the first meeting overfilled the space, the club is now meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday nights to accomodate everyone. You can register for either night each month - we'll be discussing the same book each night. We are no longer requiring registrations - come if you can! Our January selection is Angie Thomas's "The Hate U Give." The book will be for sale at 10% off in the store! Woke & Well-Read will look at life through the eyes of African American authors. We will explore some of the legendary greats (that some of us are ashamed we have not read yet), as well as contemporary favorites and writers who are up-and-coming. Our space will be open and respectful and also unafraid of the heated passions that arise when confronting issues faced by African American communities. The book club is open to everyone, and rooted in Black culture. We welcome diversity because we know that diverse ideas can birth fresh answers. The group expects that some of the books we read will challenge our understanding of our histories, some will explore popular topics in African American communities, and some will make us laugh heartily. Facilitator Jamila Latham is a social worker, inspiring writer, and local entrepreneur. Every since she was a child loved to study people so in her later years in life she decided to make it official and attain a Psychology degree. She is amazed at the complexity and multi-dimensions of human behavior. Jamila enjoys good conversation and bringing people together, a combination that inspired the Woke & Well-Read Book Club. She says “There is a real need for us to get acquainted with these authors. By doing this we are preserving African American heritage and building generational, ethic, and cultural bridges.” September 20 - I am Not Your Negro by James Baldwin. We’ll watch the documentary and then discuss Baldwin’s life and legacy. October 17 & 18 - The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison November 14 & 15 - The Radical King by Martin Luther King, Jr, edited with an introduction by Cornel West December 19 & 20- The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae January 16 & 17 - The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas February 20 & 21 - Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson March 20 & 21 - Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

Producers Forum: Strong Island (Free with RSVP)
Temple Department of Film and Media Arts – FREE EVENT! (with RSVP) Strong Island chronicles the arc of a family across history, geography and tragedy—from the racial segregation of the Jim Crow South to the promise of New York City; from the presumed safety of middle class suburbs, to the maelstrom of an unexpected, violent death. It is the story of the Ford family and how their lives were shaped by the enduring shadow of race in America. A deeply intimate and meditative film, Strong Island asks what one can do when the grief of loss is entwined with historical injustice, and how one grapples with the complicity of silence, which can bind a family in an imitation of life, and a nation with a false sense of justice. Yance Ford is a recipient of the Creative Capital Award, a MacDowell Colony Fellowship, a Sundance Documentary Film Program Fellowship, and was among Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film in 2011. For ten years Ford was privileged to work as Series Producer for the PBS showcase POV and where his curatorial work helped garner more than 16 Emmy nominations. With filmmaker Yance Ford in person. Yance Ford, USA, 2017, 107 min. This Scribe Video Center Producers' Forum screening is co-sponsored with the Temple Department of Film and Media Arts. FREE EVENT! (with RSVP)

Sold Out**Cayetana / Hemming / & Friends at Boot & Saddle
Boot & Saddle – PEACE & NOISE 2018 All Proceeds from Ticket Sales to be donated to The Attic Youth Center Cayetana The follow up to Cayetana’s debut LP Nervous Like Me, New Kind of Normal, retains the pop sensibility and candid songwriting of its predecessor yet exhibits a clear growth in sonic diversity; to be released May 5th, 2017. The Philadelphia indie rock three-piece - comprised of Augusta Koch, Allegra Anka and Kelly Olsen - has been exploring the delicate interplay of mental illness and wellness, since they began releasing music in 2014, but never so gracefully and poignantly as on New Kind of Normal. “The record is about mental health…struggling with that and settling into a new kind of normal where you can finally recognize your own your destructive behaviors and accept love into your life.” Proving themselves masters of self-actualization, Cayetana has formed their own record label – Plum Records – to release their second LP. “We want to empower people and show them that they don’t have to wait for something to happen. They can do it themselves;” Cayetana refused to compromise and hope to help other artists to do the same in the future. The recording collaboration of Koch's barnyard studio in the Poconos and Matt Schimelfenig at Philly's Miner Street Studios resulted in a diverse output of expertly crafted, hooky pop songs like “Mesa” coupled with sparse, dark, and deeply emotional synth-laden tracks like “World.” Musically, the record captures the quiet moments of crushing vulnerability and the hardened highs of personal strength as expertly as Koch’s lyrical craft. From the group’s inception Cayetana has exemplified the beauty and spirit of perseverance and DIY. They prove on New Kind of Normal that growth takes self-responsibility, accepting the help of others, and resilience proving that the risk is worth the writhing. Evidently, there is a new kind of normal not only in the mind but also in music and Cayetana is determined to help us find it. *Written by Anika Pyle Hemming HEMMING (Candice Martello) is an acoustic singer-songwriter hailing from Philadelphia, PA. Her high-voltage vocals and folk-influenced songs have stood out from the crowd as a performer in the thriving Philadelphia music scene, having played the stage at well-known venues throughout the city. With a family deep rooted in music, It's no wonder she has befriended every instrument she meets. Playing guitar at just 9 years old, and writing her first song at 13, her fascination with music took off very young. After graduating from Drexel University, Hemming continued developing her sound and influence as a solo performer to the backdrop of the artist community in West Philadelphia, and as a member of Omar, the two-piece punk band she formed with close friend Nick Fanelli. While a part of Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project, she was praised for her talent as a solo artist, and split from Omar to further develop her own sound. With musical influences including Cat Power, Metric, M. Ward, and Alanis Morisette; she is inspired by the power of raw emotion, experience, and simplicity. Hemming's rhythmic, folksy, room-splitting croon leaves produces a haunting experience for her audience. And with the honesty of her music, as she bares down to a song's meat and bones, it is undeniably clear that tugging her audience's heart strings is what she aims for.
