Looking for something to do this weekend? We will have lots of things happening at Boone County Public Library,1786 Burlington Pike, in Burlington.
On Friday, February 17, check out the Jump ‘n Jive Big Band at 7 p.m. With swingin’ arrangements, this band includes trumpets, trombones, saxophones, and more! Enjoy an energetic concert of music from the past and support musicians who dedicate their time and concert earnings to purchase instruments for students through the Cincinnati Music Foundation.
The fun continues on Saturday, February 18 with the ArtsWave Arts Sampler 2017. Join us for your morning exercise at the Creative Aging Cincinnati: Jazz/Musical Theater at 10: 30 a.m. This up-beat, wellness program is sure to bring a smile to your face and heart. Rhythmic, catchy show tunes will get you moving, raise your heart rate and tone muscles with a medium impact at a gentle pace. Adaptable for seated or standing participants.
You’ll probably have worked up an appetite after the morning program and be ready for lunch. After grabbing a bite to eat, come back at 1 p.m. for an interactive demonstration of music-making with the New Horizons Orchestra. This orchestra is the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM)) Preparatory & Engagement’s premier ensemble geared toward adult learners. Many of the orchestra members never played a string instrument before joining. Led by CCM faculty member Dr. BettyAnne Gottlieb, the orchestra will perform, talk about their experiences with music and encourage audience members to try their instruments.
Saturday’s ArtWave’s Arts Sampler line-up ends with a show performed by giant Puppets! Madcap Puppets will present “Jumping Over the Moon” at 3 p.m. Appropriate for all ages! The audience will be called upon to help entertain with twists on traditional rhymes fit for a monster party!
