Great Voices: An indept look at 6 iconic Rock and R&B Singers

Time: 10:00 to 11:45 AM

Price: $95 for course

Where: The Raven Theatre

Address: 115 North Street, Healdsburg

Throughout the rich, long arc of popular music there has always existed the great singer, the individual who elevates the great song to another dimension, a place where, as listeners, we are thrilled and inspired for the rest of our lives when we hear their work. This course will cover the lives and careers of six legendary rock and R&B singers from the period 1955-75, six singers whose work has embodied American roots music. Although all of them are also known as songwriters and performers, they made their mark as vocalists, who could rock our socks off one minute, while with the next breath cajole the sweetest melodies from the material they so passionately tackled. The course will do this through several media. The instructor will play piano, guitar and sing, and will choose appropriate examples from each genre to perform in class. The class will be presented by Peter Elman

Civilization and Climate Change

Time: 10:00 to 11:45 AM

Price: $95 for course

Where: The Raven Theatre

Address: 115 North Street, Healdsburg

Throughout history, climate change has impacted the emergence and longevity of various civilizations in both positive and negative ways. Given the recent fires in Australia and the continuing impact of wild fires on our local community, evidence of climate chaos can overwhelm an informed global citizen and lead to a sense of hopelessness. However, studying climate change in its historical and contemporary context can also help to create a path back from the abyss. This course will provide participants with the most recent evidence of the climate crisis as well as weekly insights and examples conveying hope about our collective future. The series will be taught by Tyra Benoit
