‘Clara’s Journey’ told in music, movement
MIDDLETOWN — Clara’s Journey: Why Our Piano Goes to the Woods, will be held June 21, 7 p.m in the Hubbard Room, Russell Library, 123 Broad Street, Middletown.
Every summer, the piano at Russell Library, named after Clara Schumann, has a summer adventure in the woods. Hear the music and story with Mara Bennett, Noyes dancer, and Carolyn Halsted, a Middletown composer and pianist who will play a selection of musical pieces used for Noyes Rhythm, including one of her own compositions.
Created by Florence Fleming Noyes in the early 1900s, Noyes Rhythm is a movement system that brings ease and strength to the body. Many people of all ages, both dancers and non-dancers, have come to Noyes School of Rhythm to relieve stiffness, tiredness, and loss of inspiration. Drop-in; no registration.
