"Broadway: 100 Years in 100 Minutes" presentation
A fast and fun history of musicals presented in two acts, from their origins in Burlesque and Vaudeville, through Broadway's recent rebirth in television shows like "Hairspray Live" or "Empire." Loaded with ultra-rare video and audio clips, we'll look at how musicals have both led the history of popular music throughout the last century… and adopted every one of its greatest innovations. If you haven't enjoyed my popular "Big Music in the Movies" presentation at the Naro, don't miss this event. We were discussing "Hamilton" two years before the rest of the country!

"Big Music in the Movies" presentation
Got your Oscar picks yet for 2017? How about Best Score? I can help you there. Come to the historical Naro Expanded Cinema and discover the movies' greatest secrets. Did you know that when George Lucas was directing Star Wars in 1977, he needed something new for his theme music? John Williams gave it to him: a style taken from…. an opera written in 1869! His trick resulted in one of the most popular and important film scores every written. Come discover connections I have revealed between movie music and Romantic-era music and the effect it has on you when you go to the movies. Experience the second revolution in film scoring. It will change the way you watch movies forever!

Deacon and Catdaddy present: "Mojo 101"
I am pleased to announce the return of this very popular
presentation! Before rock and roll, more primal than jazz –
what do the blues tell us about our country? What makes
our region’s Piedmont blues sound different from Chicago
blues? And what about Delta and Texas blues? Mojo 101
features multimedia and live performances by members
of the award winning blues band, Uphill.

"Chamber Music 101" presentation
When three or four are gathered in the name of music... Chamber music can be far more intimate and personal than a concert by a big orchestra, but it can also be just as dramatic! But where did string quartets get their start? Why is a Stradivarius so expensive? Who came up with the four-movement thing? And more importantly, what should I wear to the concert? (And when should I applaud?) A flashy and fun presentation that makes concert going simple again. Great for fans, and perfect for newcomers—bring someone to share this with! Additional Notes: The course fee includes a free ticket to any of the concerts by world-renowned ensembles in the Feldman Chamber Music Society series, which presents six concerts annually in Norfolk, featuring many of the most celebrated chamber ensembles in the world.
